Daughter has made a complaint not too long ago that Mom had slapped her in face...Guess that complaint wasn't enough to deter Mom from going berserk...Dad in service, this is just horrible...Who hasn't wanted to kill their kid at one time or another??? But not so bad as to actually do it??? I can't imagine the rage that she felt...Something must not be right in her head...She does have medical problems and I'd bet there's some mental issues too...Poor kids didn't even see it coming...

Her face was all twisted in the video of her. I have to wonder what meds she was on. I work in the mental health field, and I know the good medications can do, but I also know some people have adverse reactions to medications. If she was basically a good mother before all of this, then what changed? I know from a news report, the family had been to Al-Anon about their mother. I wonder if she was using illegal drugs, or if she had gone to a doctor and received prescription medication.

I really hate it for the father. And the children ... They did not deserve to have to deal with all of this alone. If another adult had been involved, maybe this tragedy may have been thwarted. The poor dad is serving his country and his entire world crumbles beneath him. He probably had no clue any of this was going awry.

Police investigated abuse case weeks before mom allegedly killed kids

By the CNN Wire Staff
January 31, 2011 9:09 p.m. EST

snipped:
Schenecker had initially planned what she called the "massacre" -- killing the children and then herself, McElroy said on Monday -- for January 22, but she put it off after learning there would be a three-day check before she could buy a gun.

Police later found writings in the house, thought to be from Schenecker, in which she spelled out her intentions in detail.

One thing I will never understand is why does she plead 'Not Guilty' when she called 911 and told them she had killed her kids and there is all the evidence to prove that she had planned to do so for a while...We sure live in a Wacky World with lots of wacky people...I've got to the point where I won't look in the mirror cause I'm afraid I might be one....

LOL, Estee! That is pretty crazy, I assume their lawyers instruct them to plead not guilty. It just draws out the process of conviction. This is a horribly sad case. Something was definitely amiss with this mother. I have to wonder about drugs too, was she on medication for depression or something.
