snake_beater: Wasn't that the ending to Memento?
grinding_journalist: Seriously, I'm asking: what good can come of it?
grinding_journalist: What good can come of keeping this person alive on the taxpayer dime, either in prison or any asylum for the next 5-20 years?Seriously, I'm asking: what good can come of it?
grinding_journalist: It may sound callous, but seriously, just execute this person

The My Little Pony Killer: grinding_journalist: Seriously, I'm asking: what good can come of it?She can't keep a house, kill her off. Just send her out on the ice flow like all of the other elders, amirite?
CapeFearCadaver: Authorities have said there were no records of domestic violence in the Rosas' home before the shooting, although they had spoken to the couple.Different age where you simply live with the cards that have been dealt.
Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: I swear to God this was on an episode of Columbo.
octopied: Family's defence is that she's endured decades of abuse? So nice of them to step in and try to stop it by legal means before, particularly since she had some level of dementia.
grinding_journalist: It may sound callous, but seriously, just execute this person.She's not cognizant enough to realize she killed her husband, or that he was dead.As such, she cannot possibly be considered "safe" enough to live on her own, drive a car, pay bills, keep a house, etc.(If she and her family are playing up the "dementia" card and she IS cognizant, well, I just feel all the more strongly about ending her.I cannot believe she's self-supporting, especially without her husband.What good can come of keeping this person alive on the taxpayer dime, either in prison or any asylum for the next 5-20 years?Seriously, I'm asking: what good can come of it?
bubo_sibiricus: And meet your new status. Bye. Forever.
missmez: The My Little Pony Killer: grinding_journalist: Seriously, I'm asking: what good can come of it?She can't keep a house, kill her off. Just send her out on the ice flow like all of the other elders, amirite?As someone caring for an elderly parent I would be the first to sign up. My mom is in constant pain, is hospitalized regularly and has just enough mental acuity to understand her mind is slipping away. I don't know why she doesn't eat a waterglass.
Spawn_of_Cthulhu: My dad had Alzheimer's. He would get mad at my mom and hit her and shake her and choke her. Then a few hours later he would see the bruises and be appalled, asking "who did this to you?" When he finally had to be forcibly taken from the house by the police after he almost killed my mom, he asked my husband to find the "bad man" who hurt my mom and "kill him" when he saw my mom's throat covered in bruises that night in the hospital. It was really heartbreaking. He only went after me once--his strength in a rage was inhuman and I absolutely know he could have killed my mother and not remembered once he calmed down. My mom didn't want to put him in a nursing home until she had no choice and she almost paid with her life that day.So yes, I believe if this lady really had dementia she could have killed her husband and not known it. My dad, when not in a violent dementia rage, was a quiet and calm person who opened the door for bugs rather than kill them.Of course the family could be lying about the dementia or the abuse; either way that would suck, being abused or having dementia is nothing to lie about.
