It Happened Again

Yep that's right it happened again. Someone took their child's life. This time it was two children. Now the are two stories floating around. One pretty much blames a custody battle the other makes no mention of the battle just autism.

What is the response from the community. Pretty much crickets. No one is saying anything. There are no walk in her shoes posts, no sympathy, really not even outrage. It's more of a let's just ignore this one.

Why? Is it because the headline Mom Loses Custody Than Kills Kids makes mom out to be a monster. Which anyone who hurts a child is a monster. It's not as nice as Mom Kills Autistic Kid Than Attempts Suicide. Really those are two headlines form the same story. Same players same situation just the media presenting it differently.

The difference one blames mom and one blames autism. You know what at the end of the day there are two children gone. No matter what the story two children were killed. Yet no one wants to talk about it. They seem to just want to sweep it under the rug.

There are no cries for understanding, no prayers being sent to the families that are broken, no legal funds being set up for moms defense, no calls for more services, just silence.

Just as I hope Alex and Issy's perpetrators are sentenced to the full extent of the law. I hope Jaden and his sister Faith's murderer is sentenced to the full extent of the law. I said it then and I will keep saying it. If you kill your kids you are a bad parent! No sympathy here.
