Like father, like son.
Good enough for one, good enough for the other.
Shot my the wife, shot my the mother.

32 year old guy living with mom tries to hide his relationship with another woman. Mom finds out and goes into a jealous rage and shoots him.

Nothing weird about that relationship...

She was acquitted. You didn't want them to take her gun away from her, did you? This is America.

Wow, that mom is a nutcase! I hope she goes to jail.

I find it strange that the second son, a police officer, helped his mother "intimidate" his brother and is not up on some sort of review.

The whole story could have been a plotline on one of my mother's soaps when I was a kid.

Because it would have been sooooo much better if she had killed two people with the same baseball bat or rat poison.


Jeesh.  Instead of getting hung up on an inanimate object, why don't we focus on the person responsible?   Obviously those men brought it upon themselves.

Because if she had used the same box of rat poison it would also be the additionally 'creepy' factor.

Also I am still glancing through the article, but I recall some people wondering about the differences between a sociopath and a narcissist. Offhand she seems to fit the NPD profile, for those who find that interesting anyway. And children of a narcissist mother are this type of unusually farked up. And even though they're adults, it's still largely not their fault. It can be surprisingly difficult to break away from an NPD mother. I have a friend who did, as did all his siblings but one. My friend is very successful (in a bootstrappy way, tho really that was probably easy compared to growing up in his family) and has had yeeears of ongoing therapy. He's completely no contact with her, and had to go no contact for awhile with the sibling who was still in contact b/c they were being used as mom's pawn. I've heard maaaaybe like 1% of things and...jeebus. I'd rather be beaten black and blue than suffer than kind of abuse. They're like spiders, center of all in their webs of manipulation.

"Creepy" is such a strong word. And 'better' is subjective. The media would have thought it was awesome. Then again, the media can be pretty creepy.

Yeap that was where I started going WTF - the other momma's boy is a cop and they spent 15 minutes chatting together whilst the brother/son bled out on the ground.

Mental institution for her I think, wheelchair for the victim and hopefully a psych evalution for the other brother.

In June 2011, Kevin Cooney was on the receiving end of a bullet from the same .357 Magnum that killed his father.


HALLO!! My name is Linda Cooney. I killed your father. Prepare to die.
 
2013-12-17 07:45:45 AM  
Don't TELL me she wasn't called Looney Cooney as a kid. That's yer de-fence right there...child abuse. Poor woman.

My family is the same way. I had to put 700 miles of geography & the NPD mother & sister.

This kind of shiat is pretty much par for the course in really farked-up families, as Lady Indica just noted. You just never know about it until someone gets killed. But the crazy just keeps going and going and going, right down through the generations. Some people escape it, but it's very hard to do. It usually takes years just to see that the problem isn't YOU. .

/And Farkers wonder why people can't just "get over" their horrible childhoods. ......Because you didn't have a horrible childhood, assholes.

I'll guess she's acquitted again, because of the state.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but in Florida you can get away with murder.
