Domestic Violence

Well, Saturday night in Lone Tree came with yet another murder /suicide. The second within 5 years. A woman down the street from me was found beaten to death with her crazed boyfriend dead by her side with a bullet hole in his head! She had a restraining order out on him. It didn't help much. What could possibly be going thru that guys head. What happened. Whose to blame? What could have been done. It's a real vicious cycle. People i work with knew him, "I can't believe that he did that, he was a real nice guy! Soft spoken and never got into trouble".
Then there's the 11 year old kid that killed his dad's girlfriend with a shot to the back of the head while she slept. Man, What's going on there? It's like a movie. Freaky Deaky!!!

More like a nightmare! Restraining orders can be a joke since they are hard to enforce. Hope things are settling down for you!

I think people just watch too much violence on TV...I can't stand all the violent murder shows...unless it's Sci-fi...they can wack all the aliens they want!

How about that man in Finland that kept his daughter locked in a prison in his basement. Used her as a sex toy and fathered 7 children with her. The mother and daughter and all the children live in seclusion now and the bastard is in prison and says 'well at least I didn't kill them'...

It's a sicko world out there!!!

Hey - thanks for the visit - I have been working, knitting, taking care of business each day takes so much time! But, I thought of you and wanted to touch base and get out there again! The abuse in the world is so sad and it is hard to take all of the violence in the world, especially against women and children. It is hard for us to make any sense of it all. I guess we just keep knitting, doing art, and spreading the love - right! Hey it is almost spring and we will have flowers very soon! Hugs, K
