Authorities say a mother killed her 5-year-old son before killing herself. The boy's father said it never should have happened.
Ken Kreuscher, the 5-year-old boy's father, told KFOR sister station KDVR that he sought a restraining order against the boy's mother, Sara Atkinson, and had court documentation of the mother's erratic actions.
He claims Atkinson was becoming increasingly paranoid, not taking medications and was more violent toward the child, KDVR reports.
Yet, Kreuscher says no one intervened.

Why? Because he’s a Man. Had it been in reverse you all know the outcome.
So when your wife's about to kill your son, call the government bureaucrats, to apply for a document telling her to stop. Well done!!
I understand your comment but had he forcefully removed his son from the mother’s home, I suspect the man would have found himself in jail, the boy would have been returned to his mother and the outcome would have been the same. Maybe not, we’ll never know. It’s a tragedy.
Women have an incredible capacity for evil.
Over the years there have been multiple stories of mothers killing their children under 10 years old (too young to defend themselves). Yet, just like the jihadists, it’s reported that it’s an aberration; a one time thing, so as not to concern yourselves further.
Especially since American women have killed over 50 million of their own children since 1973.
Don’t tell me “crazy” people do not calculate. The truth is they are full of anger and quite often they fully intend to make someone PAY before they check out. Volition!
“I saw a huge mark recently on Kenny. He told me his mom punched him, Kreuscher said. I filed a report.
When a case worker from child protection services came to visit him, Kreuscher says she was unhelpful.
“She stood in front of me and pointed at my closet and said, Unless your kid’s being stuck in a closet every day or beaten every day, I’m not going to do anything about it, and if you call back, if I hear back from you about this kind of stuff, I’m going to take him from you and her,” Kreuscher said.
Exactly, the system doomed the boy.
“She was afraid that the father was going to take the child from her and she said that she would kill him before she ever let that happen ... that she would shoot him and herself,” Desi said.
ALL human beings have an incredible capacity for evil, not just women. We inherited that condition from the man whose rib we were created from....
Such a tragedy. We had an occurrence like that in a city I lived in, except that the wife’s husband was a police officer, and more than one child was involved. She didn’t kill herself but she did kill her three kids. She went to the same church I went to.
Stuff like this, close up, leaves an icky feeling inside.
When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride, He shouts to scare the monster, who will often turn aside. But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. When Nag the basking cobra hears the careless foot of man, He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can. But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. When the early Jesuit fathers preached to Hurons and Choctaws, They prayed to be delivered from the vengeance of the squaws. 'Twas the women, not the warriors, turned those stark enthusiasts pale. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. Man's timid heart is bursting with the things he must not say, For the Woman that God gave him isn't his to give away; But when hunter meets with husband, each confirms the other's tale -- The female of the species is more deadly than the male. Man, a bear in most relations-worm and savage otherwise, -- Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise. Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act. Fear, or foolishness, impels him, ere he lay the wicked low, To concede some form of trial even to his fiercest foe. Mirth obscene diverts his anger --- Doubt and Pity oft perplex Him in dealing with an issue -- to the scandal of The Sex! But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same; And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail, The female of the species must be deadlier than the male. She who faces Death by torture for each life beneath her breast May not deal in doubt or pity -- must not swerve for fact or jest. These be purely male diversions -- not in these her honour dwells. She the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else. She can bring no more to living than the powers that make her great As the Mother of the Infant and the Mistress of the Mate. And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unclaimed to claim Her right as femme (and baron), her equipment is the same. She is wedded to convictions -- in default of grosser ties; Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him who denies! -- He will meet no suave discussion, but the instant, white-hot, wild, Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child. Unprovoked and awful charges -- even so the she-bear fights, Speech that drips, corrodes, and poisons -- even so the cobra bites, Scientific vivisection of one nerve till it is raw And the victim writhes in anguish -- like the Jesuit with the squaw! So it cames that Man, the coward, when he gathers to confer With his fellow-braves in council, dare not leave a place for her Where, at war with Life and Conscience, he uplifts his erring hands To some God of Abstract Justice -- which no woman understands. And Man knows it! Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him Must command but may not govern -- shall enthral but not enslave him. And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail, That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male.
Bipolar Disorder affects both male and female. And it is very dangerous.
Many will not understand that persons with BPD are not responsible for their actions. That’s hard to get one’s mind around but it’s true. They often come out of a severe episode not remembering a thing and then carry on as if nothing happened while everyone around them is trembling in fear.
It’s a form of epilepsy, a brain disease in which the person affected loses control, a sense of themselves and others, and becomes as a wild animal. Scriptures have numerous examples of the disease.
Awareness of the disease is increasing. Many families try to keep the condition hushed up out of shame but awareness is helping to remove the social stigma allowing people to feel more comfortable in seeking treatment for themselves or for family members.
The problem is that the persons affected often deny they are affected and hence won’t agree to treatment. Short of locking them up in a straitjacket, there’s not much that can be done short of a court order mandating a psychiatric assessment. Such orders can be sealed so that family privacy is respected.
But, a problem exists when non-professionals try and diagnose someone as BPD when the person is in fact not BPD. The result can be committing someone who should not be locked up. Mood swings or PMS volatile behavior is not BPD. Thus, people should be aware that only trained psychiatrists are able and authorized to diagnose this clinical disorder.
Once again, the violence occasioned by withdrawal from psych meds rears its ugly head.
I’ve met some of those types, I’m sorry to say.
One I dated a long time ago, if anything ever happens to her husband, I’ll suspect she killed him.
I have only encountered one like her, thank God. But I’ve also met a few not unlike her in many respects.
Fortunately, most women are reasonably normal.
I know plenty who claim to be BPD and, thus, not responsible for their actions. It may be true in rare cases, but I am tired of it.
