I agree with both Gelan and Erny. Who knows what bought about the divorce, and what pressures were put on the woman during and after the divorce. I saw what a mate went through with his divorce, and the individual that I consider solely to blame was the wife's lawyer...the longer things drag out, the more money he got, and the more my mate got stung.
Domestic Violence...there is more in society than many know about...but I think that the "do-gooder" section of society is to blame. In the past, what was simply an argument, is today considered Domestic Violence because of the definitions these do-gooders have put on things.
Which ever way...you are totally correct Erny...the only truly innocent person in this whole terrible incident was the baby.
I only wish that she had not used a firearm...it is going to "bite" all firearms owners on the arse one way or another...courtesy of those same bloody do-gooders.
