    God bless that woman!!!
    He should have gotten the same sentence he tried to give her, beaten to death with a baseball bat! I hope the children can have intense therapy and somehow come out of this to have productive lives.

    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.

    WTH? I must be missing something?

    From the article:
    Prosecutors say Davis encouraged his 12-year-old daughter and 15-year-old son to kill his ex-wife last June.
    How does one "encourage" a 12 and 15 year old to beat their mother to death?

    The article said they were attacking the mother already and the father then went to the house and joined in the attack.
    I somehow believe there may have been more going on if they called the father after the attack ensued.

    'hey dad were playing batting practice with mom's head, want to join in?'

    How much did these children have to hate their mother in order to do this. Encouraging them? What did they say one day "I hate mom, I outta beat her up", and Dad says yeah, that's exactly what you should do???

    Encouraging is far different, in my opinion, than threatening!

    if he'd beaten them down (both literally and figuratively) they might not be able to tell the diffrence anymore.
