New understanding for murderers

If you've ever seen forensic files or similar murder stories, you know it's usually one spouse killing the other, often due to infidelity. Sometimes it's the selfish-ass wayward . But now that I'm going through D I kinda feel for the BS that tries it. I mean it's like you're between a rock and a hard spot because either they abandoned you to struggle or you have to chose to either stay with someone mistreating/abusing you and setting a bad example for your kids, or you can go live at a lower socioeconomic status while your kids get shuffled around or mourn the loss of a parent. But if the WS died there'd be no custody to share and the lifestyle might even improve with life insurance money. They wouldn't be able to scar the kids emotionally because they could just be martyred as some great dad before the truth came out. So I can see why people might try to orchestrate that.

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.

I do find myself having a better understanding of how someone can kill due to rage/abuse.

More often though I end up feeling envious that most murderers get less punishment/hard time than I did......

I watch a lot of ID. There have been cases on there where I cheer for the BS murdering the WS. (I don't normally condone murder, but there have been 1 or 2 where I do)

This one in particular:

I know, right?????

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.

Ditto Nature Girl.

And to quote Downton Abbey
Cora: We all have bad feelings. It's acting on those feelings that make us bad.

Laura Rogers, she is a hero, and I understand.

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.

Laura Rogers was protecting her kid. I don't know anyone that wouldn't shoot the bastard.
If I had absolutely nothing to lose, which I have plenty, well let's just say there is a lot of desert here and I'm awfully close to the border.
All "funning" aside, everybody has a breaking point. Everyone is capable of murder. We all have different snapping points.
I don't feel a bit sorry for a WS that pushed his/her BS to that point and paid with his/her life. I feel sorry for the BS for not leaving before he/she got to that point, and I feel sorry if there are any children involved.
Sometimes fear/terror can keep a person in the M long after they should have cut and ran.
Unless I've lived in another's terror, I won't judge.

I never heard of Laura Rogers until now:

God bless her & her daughter. And that poor baby.

About 10-15 years ago there was a women in Texas who ran over hr WS ... three times! Here is a wiki link to the story

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.

Oh I so understand how a BS can snap especially if dealing with unremorseful spouse. If some BS can kill themselves due to the hurt and pain felt what do you think can stop them from killing the WS?

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.
