I'm glad you said this. I have been wondering why would she leave him alone with her child after saying she was leaving him. She had to have some idea he was a threat to her child. I'm waiting for more information about her before I fully decide if she is also, at least, partly, responsible. On the one hand I can see she should have known better because she was after all leaving him and I'm sure he made remarks about Jodi in reference to hateing his hateing him. But then on the other hand how the hell expects somethign like this that rat bastard planned this. Sawing off his head and leaving it outside to be found is not snapping or blacking out in a fit of rage that was planned and he shows no remorse...Geez she had to know he would be in danger being alone with his Father.

I would like to review the psychological reports before passing judgment on this case.

A lot of horrific acts that appear to be rooted in "evil" from the perspective of the general public are the result of significant brain function issues. That is not to say that such is the case with this particular individual, but without knowing all of the facts I will reserve judgment.

There is so much sadness in this world.

It's not always that simple. She may have left him alone with his dad because she was positive he would be perfectly safe there. I wish there were always warning signs, but some people will just surprise you.

They have moved Jeremiah Wright to Eastern Louisiana Mental Health System, Forensic Division in Jackson, Louisiana. I hope this a real true loony bin. The judge is requiring monthly reports on his progress and restorative treatment.

Those places are basically stuffed with criminals, many of whom are trying to fake crazy to avoid consequences. The husband of a friend of mine worked in the Michigan equivalent for 20+ years, and was he ever sick of those guys by the time he retired.

I had a relative, not a criminal, but her husband had her committed to a state mental institution. The institution does a 30 days evaluation. Relative said if you are not crazy when you get there you will leave crazy. The criminally insane had another location.

That guy out in Arizona that shot Gabrielle Giffords and killed those other people is in an institution too.

Here's an update. I guess he is indeed going the Jared Loughner route:

Father accused of decapitating son unfit for trial, judge rules - CNN

I think one has to be crazy to do something like this .... BUT this type of murder is slaughter ... not like grabbing a gun in the heat of 'red rage' and killing someone ... you just don't cut a kid's head off, his arms off and then go outside and place the child's head where mom could see it when she returns home. Then place the rest of the body parts in a garbage bag.

He probably went back in and popped a top on a beer, stretched out on the couch and waited on his wife. He was sane enough to smirk and explain in detail what he did to the dummy (what he called his young son.)

Evil, evil, evil !!!
