I'm not saying I'd do it. I'm not saying you should do it. I just spared a thought for BSes that went that route today and thought I'd just share.
More often though I end up feeling envious that most murderers get less punishment/hard time than I did......

I'd never do it, either. In fact, I have had two different people offer to do it for me. I couldn't live with that on my conscience, although if my ex ever does something to my kids you can be sure I'll regret telling those people no.

It's hard to see the road ahead if you're always looking in the rear view mirror.
Betty Broderick, I am not so sure. Yeah, her husband Dan was a dickweed, but I don't feel the murder was justified. She wasn't an abused wife. She felt she got screwed in the divorce, but not really. I lived in San Diego at the time this happened. I am sorry, $9,036.00 tax free a month, a $650,000.00 home for Betty that Dan bought and paid for, seems like it was fair (and this was in the late '80's). Sure, it wasn't the lifestyle she was used to, but that is what happens in divorce and most people have to tone down their lifestyle.
I have sympathy and compassion for Laura Rogers, not so much Betty Broderick. Betty should have gone NC. Everyone would have been better off.

God bless her & her daughter. And that poor baby.
At the time, before dday, I thought it was humorous in a morbid kind of way. And I thought the claim that she did not remember exactly what she did was silly (with wiki article does not cover this, but I recall it from news stories at that time).
After dday, oh did I ever understand!! In that moment, confronting her WS and his whore, she went crazy. Yep, been there done that. Luckily I was not behind the wheel of a car at the time. Instead I just launched across the room and tried to choke the bitch. Not my proudest moment and not something I tell people, but yes it happened. I was not in control when it happened, I just knew I wanted to kill the stupid bitch because of what she had done to my life and to my child. But I did regain my senses and the end result was basically a shouting match.
So I get it.
I remember on dday I was screaming at my ex, he told me to stop screaming at him. My response 'You should be happy that's all I'm doing. I could kill you right now and claim insanity.'
So much hurt, destruction and innocent lives shattered!

What in the entire fyck is that about? How she just kill her husband then not even be with the AP? It took about 20 years, but they caught up with them and they are both serving time now.
