You hear in the news al the time that people kill their ex's or their wives or husbands for sometimes the strangest reasons. If you say you love someone why kill them? WHy try to kill them you will go to jail sometimes for life. http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/2008-08-12-malil-arrest_N.htm?csp=34 A couple of days ago a man killed his son and hisself because his wife was getting a restraining order and he also killed the babysitter. If you want to die then die ,but why take an innocent childs life? If a person doesn't want to be with you then let them go. http://www.contracostatimes.com/crimeandcourts/ci_10231517?nclick_check=1

I've seen this in the news alot too. Most of the time it is a case of either "if I can't have you no one will" or a parent not wanting to leave their child behind. It's really hard on families b/c you not only grieve for the ones lost but for the actions of the one that did it. Oh, I have seen a few cases of parents doing it to get out of paying child support and a few to get out of paying alimony. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG AND TRUST IN GOD**[/b]

Oh this sort of thing makes me so angry, it makes me wonder what could of possibly gone wrong inthat marriage, these two people must have loved each other at some point...it must be just plain selfishness on the part of the person doing the killing...
