That's terrible, what made them try to kill themselves and their family? They're probably going to be killed as well. I wouldn't want to do that to my child after I went through birth process and then this. That's awful.

yes, that's true! i think they have financial problems and turned to loan sharks, and when they cant pay back their debts and being harrased, they chose the easy way out, die together...

in the first place, the news has actually published on the activities on loan shark and the outrageous interest you have to bear...it has already been known. they didnt choose to kill their own children, but they can find other alternative, they chose this path, they chose to borrow from loan sharks and being harassed by them!

Wow, that is so sick. How could you kill your own child? I think any misery they encounter once they recuperate is well earned. As a parent myself, I could NEVER kill my daughter and even the thought of her not being alive makes me ill. I read the article, and I understand they were being attacked by loan sharks, but still, there are other answers.

Even if you can see no other alternative for yourself you should have the decency to give your kids to someone who will take care of them. The children were not the ones who were stupid enough to get involved with loan sharks.

But what justification is there for the murder of their children? None whatsoever. I think they should fry.

I would hate to have my kids die before me... I dont know how I would go on. But these people killed their own kids. Personally, they are going to have to live with that the rest of their lives... and that could be the best punishment for them... a long live of knowing that they killed their kids.

that is horrible..... then again, nothing really surprises me anymore. i have to admit though that they should fry like potatoes:) i think its a lot worse to survive when you tried to kill yourself, but then again, who knows until it happens?

yes they will now have to live with the fact that they killed their kids....but i have no sympathy for them as they were the ones who did it... i dont think they should fry but rot in jail for life......and let them be tormented by the fact they killed their 3 kids. there is NO excuse......

i think this is their punishment being able to live knowing that they killed their sons. these kind of people are nuts so so nuts. its better for them to get jailed and live for the rest of their lives. :grr

They must be either mentally disordered or savage monsters! to be able to do such a horrible crime! I mean how they got the nerve to do it! I think they should be executed for this! I don't think they are gonna have any problems with remorse or regret.. cuz they've reached a point far beyond these normal human feelings! hope their sons souls find peace in heaven which is much more better than living with these parents!!

its a real sad story, but dont understand why so many families try this kind of stuff every year. this is no way one can solve a problem. atleast when such couples plan to kill themselves they can do so, but why the kids let them be sent off to orphanage insted.

I can't imagine how those poor children felt when they were being executed by their supposed protectors. There are really a lot of sick people out there. How can two parents agree on killing their children? I can imagine one parent being crazy enough to think about this but two? They deserve to live so they can regret what they did their whole lives.

well,it is indeed their punishment having to live with the guilt...but they have no excuse for wanting to do that,if they couldn't bare life anymore they could have given the kids for adoption,they have no right in taking other people's life,especially some innocent children that surely wanted to live...in my religion,we don't even have the right to take our own lifes...anyways,if you decide you are done with your life,there is no need in taking others with you..it's just disgusting and selfish and crazy and imoral...i never understood how people could kill their own children...i don't have kids yet,but i wouldnt even kill my hamster lol

That's true...normal sane person will not bear to even hurt a dog...you are right! if they want to end their life, they should put the children up for adoption. Thanks for your response!

I wish they wouldn't have killed the kids. What is wrong with people? I'd rather them hurt themselves than their innocent children.
