or she could have shot the mother before she got slashed 31 times. 7 yrs old--not impossible

Right stephany. I'm so sure the 7 year old, while terrified of her knife wielding mother, would have had the presence of mind to go get the family gun. Your argument is ridiculous.

When I read the comments people submit, it makes me very sad that there is no compassion from most of them. The people that do have some are shouted down. Judge not, less you be judged - and found lacking.
