    I cannot imagine being this monster's wife right now.
    Yes, they had issues I'm sure.
    I can't imagine she thought he was capable of murdering babies though.

    I'm sure at some point he held his own baby while his wife showered. Or cooked dinner.
    Can you imagine being his wife right now?
    Remembering the times he held your own baby?

    Knowing now that he targeted crying babies at point blank range?
    Knowing now that he cracked his infant stepsons skull?
    Why did he spare his own kids? Why didn't they fall victim to him?

    I cannot even imagine the nightmares she must be having.
    About how lucky she and her babies are to be alive.

    Considering his charges for injuring step son, not sure why him being capable of hurting children would come as a surprise to his current wife.
    Just my opinion

    While yes this monster's child will find out the truth someday, but also, he/she could become one of the greatest advocates for child protection against the daddy he/she never knew?

    Nurture over nature? I can't imagine the anxiety, myself... I really hope the media will leave it alone.

Or maybe.....I too have become desensitized and just don't remember. I'm embarrassed to say Sandy Hook was mentioned the other day and my first thought was of a bad storm. It literally slammed me when I switched thoughts. HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN!!!!!!!! So ashamed!
    ......
    My guess is that there are much fewer females watching and playing video games. I brought up this same thought with my husband the other night. As a female myself, it's just my guess that there are much, much fewer females playing violent video games than there are males. It is interesting that there are no female mass killers. I think it's very complex and I know others would probably argue with me... I graduated from high school in the mid 80s. There is not one incident of suicide or threat that I can remember. No 8 year old committed suicide. My school mates who committed suicide did so after high school. Kids, especially boys, were more likely to fist fight on the school grounds or elsewhere. Guns never came out. So, what's different today from the 80s?

    My observations....

    We weren't on the internet 24/7. Most, if not all of us didn't have internet or even a computer.
    Porn. Porn wasn't nearly as easily accessible as it is today. And in my opinion, not as violent.
    Emasculation of boys. Boys got into fist fights on playgrounds and in parking lots. With fists, not with guns, even though nearly every family in that city that I grew up with owned guns. Boys are no longer encouraged to be boys. It's frowned upon in many areas. I recently participated in the town's citizen's police academy. One of the speakers told us about how difficult it is to train young people to become officers. They have no clue how to fight or how to defend themselves in a fight (without a gun). It's just my opinion, boys are not being raised to become men. Also, more and more schools are removing PE. Where and how are kids suppose to release aggression and get it out of their system? Many schools have also done away with Home Ec or Shop Class. In my opinion, shop class kept (and home ec) not only kept kids busy, but helped them to develop interests in things that not only used their brains, but use their hands.
    Medication. While I was in high school, I never heard of such things as a kid being on meds for depression or anxiety or ADD, etc. We were KIDS. Again, just my opinion, we were to grow through those things. And I believe for most kids, that would be the right way to go about it. After all, while we are in our teens, we are still growing, developing mentally, emotionally, physcially, etc. Hormones are developing. Why add a mix of meds to that equation? Bad, bad, bad mix, in my opinion.

    Go ahead now, chew me up and spit me out. ;-p
    Just my opinion... and trust me, I do have one.

    I wonder if there is any correlation between violent video games and gun ownership?

    One thing is certain, there are millions and millions of semi-automatic weapons owned by millions and millions of Americans, and the vast, vast majority of them aren't used to commit mass murders. (I'm just observing, and not advocating for or against gun control here.)

    There is a correlation between higher levels of gun ownership and higher firearm homicide rates, states with higher rates of gun ownership have disproportionately large numbers of deaths from firearm-related homicides, and weaker gun laws are common among the states with higher gun death rates. And gun owners are more likely to be killed with their own weapon (including killing themselves) or kill a loved one than use it to shoot a bad guy.

    Just sharing the facts, not advocating either way.

    That goes into the big folder of stuff we will probably never know.

    I think that will come later. I think right now it's more survival mode.
    Later when the child starts to misbehave those thoughts will come I am sure.
    Torture for her either way.

    I'm assuming for now that she did not know about that.
    Obviously if it comes out that she did, I'd change that view.

    That's just my personal experience.

    That gut feeling when you see that pre-schooler who's just not "right", and 10-15 years down the road they've done something horrific.

    The most specific incident I can relate is a school mate of my son's. From the moment I met him at 6 years of age, I thought this kid is going to end up in a tower shooting people. He didn't wait that long, at 11 years of age, he brutally attacked his mother with an ax. My son is 30 now, I have no idea where this kid is currently but he was sentenced to juvie until he was 18.

    A schoolmate of my daughter's I met at 10, same feeling............he's been in and out of juvie/prison (since 14) for sexual assaults/rape (among other things) on minors. My daughter is 36. Last I heard, Jason was still in prison.

    I live in a rural area, maybe that makes for being more observant?

    BTW: The parents of these 2 had other children who were well adjusted and went on to be great adults and parents.
