Just saw on the news today, a father killed his own child and posted the horrendous picture on his Facebook page to have his wife see it. What happened was a result of tremendous jealousy that it affected the husband's senses. That was really sick and saddening that it cause uproar of emotions and rage among "netizens" and viewers. We cannot imagine what happened that it caused a psychotic effect to the man's mind. It is not detectable by just looking a person. Deception is one of thing that they are good at. Death penalty issue paves again but is it really the solution for this heinous crime?

He didn't kill the child just because he wanted to. From what I understand from @Shavkat's post, this extreme jealousy and despair caused him to be mentally unstable, and mentally unstable people more often than not can't differentiate between right and wrong. Sometimes they don't even know what they're doing.

@azrapa ..We've had one case out here, father killing children because he suspected his wife to be having affair. World is a weird place...we need better methods to identify who is mentally stable, and who is not.

@vandana7 I think the best way is that if you think that someone you know is behaving differently is to talk to them, and if you feel like something is terribly wrong then to bring them to a doctor, ask for advice and get an examination.

That poor baby and poor mom. I pray that this father gets the help he needs, and never sees the light of freedom again.

@MakingCents Sometimes we really cannot understand why people change its behavior. Perhaps they cannot conceal their anger and escalated to rage.

If because of jealousy the husband became mentally ill then he must have loved his wife so much, so much that realising that she may have fallen for someone else caused him great mental stress, resulting to an unstable mind. I feel bad for the child who had nothing to do with it, and I feel sorry for both of them for losing a child because of their problem. As much as I'd like to condemn the husband for what he's done, his mental condition is already unstable, and had his wife clarified his jealousies if he really had something to be jealous about or not, then this wouldn't have happened.

@azrapa I don't know what really ticks in his mind. I hope that it is not because of jealousy. According to the news, this is the cause of his being in rage.
