I suspect, as is the case in virtually all of these murder/suicide attempts,
that Joshua was on SSRI antidepressants. Likely another sad tale of
antidepressant side effects.
YGradFanCENTERVILLE, UT@LDS Liberal, you need to get off your
soapbox about the guns (i.e. similar story you commented on yesterday). As
mentioned in the article, he had been planning it for a month. He could have
easily substituted a knife or some other weapon in place of the gun.Instead, how about you feel sorry for the baby that was killed, and the family
that now has to live with that for years to come.12:39 p.m. April
30, 2013=========== Of course I feel sorry for this
baby's family.I'm a bleeding heart liberal.ButI'm sorry, No - I will not get off my soap-box about gun access to the
mentally ill.I've had far too many friends and family members
over the years who have suffered due to self inflicted gunshots by the mentally
ill.You see-- I used to be an ultra-con too.But
experiences in my life have changed my mind.I was worng.It's being homo-phobic, and then changing one's mind after
they discover their own son is gay.Suddenly, We start singing
a completely DIFFERENT tune.Try putting yourself in someone
The DNews says the man 'wants to die.' My opinion, suggestion... he
should get his wish.To the DNews monitor: You keep rejecting my
post on this article. Your paper is the one that brought the issue up of
'wanting to die.' Not me. If you are going to continue to reject my
posts, shouldn't you have not run the article about 'wanting to
die' in the first place? wrz
@LDS Liberal, you need to get off your soapbox about the guns (i.e. similar
story you commented on yesterday). As SS mentioned, it doesn't matter how
he got the gun (whether by legal means or not), he would have found some other
means to kill his baby boy. As mentioned in the article, he had been planning
it for a month. He could have easily substituted a knife or some other weapon
in place of the gun.Instead, how about you feel sorry for the baby
that was killed, and the family that now has to live with that for years to
SSMiddleofNowhere, Utah@ LDS Liberal,That's right, the
gun was the problem, not the fact that he wanted to kill his 5 month old child.
There are hundreds of ways that he could have done it.10:32 a.m.
April 30, 2013=========== I did not say that.The problem is he wanted to kill his 5 month old child, but the fact
remains, the pro-gun nuts - who keep insisting that there can't be
any restriction what-so-ever to ANYBODY just enabled him to do it.
LDS Liberal, it's a shame that he chose a firearm. it could have been
just as easily a kitchen knife, a baseball bat, or, a child that age he could
have simply bashed his head against the floor or anything else. but of course
the fault is the gun's

Well now they won't even seek the death penalty because now they know they
can torture him with life and save more money than a death sentence would cost.
Alleged OKC accompliace Terry Nichols also wanted to die but he let
the prosecution know it and they backed off and just sought life imprisonment.
I still want to know how he had access to a weapon in the 1st place?
I think his wish should be granted. It'd be only humane. And why incur
$millions to put him behind bars for life... then he dies?
Just wondering, does he have a family--parents? siblings? Are they in the
@ Brahmabull: I could NOT agree more.
If the guy wants to die, then let's see that he does. It's insane to
keep him in jail for the rest of his life costing the taxpayer millions of
dollars... then he dies anyway. Are we insane?
This is exactly how he should feel. Killing himself would have been sad, but
killing the child is inexcusable and unforgiveable in my opinion.
