Is it ok to kill my husband?

trigger warning: 
discussion of murder, murder of children, murder of a disabled woman, suicide, excuse of murder, sympathy for murderers 

Dear Journalists and Members of the Media,

We need to have a talk. I have some serious questions to ask you, and I'd like to know your honest answers. 

Once again this week, I'm seeing violent murder....  4 violent murders, actually- 3 children and their mother ....... reported as a tragedy and with sympathy for the murderer. He was a pillar of the community. He was a great guy. He was so patient. He was under stress. He must have snapped. He must have been suffering, after all, he committed suicide. 

His wife had a disability

Maybe that is why we are reading your sympathy for him.

So, here are my questions for you:

If I kill my husband, who has a disability, is that OK

If I kill my 3 kids, who have disabilities, will you feel sorry for me too

Now do you see how dangerous what you are doing is? 

Do you realise that while ever you continue to empathise with murderers you put lives at risk?

Will you stop? Or will you keep doing it because it sells papers and gets ratings?
