She must be a victim??

Filed under: General — triassic @ 10:35 pm

This poor woman must have suffered at the hands of a male at some time in order to commit such a crime. I just hope that the authorities can find that man in her life to pay for her brutality. It is of course possible and preferable that ‘she’ is in fact a transgender. We all know that females are just not capable of such rage…..

A mother killed four of her children by cutting their throats and sheriff’s deputies found a large butcher knife with what appeared to be blood on it in an apartment were the killings took place, according to court documents.

Shanynthia Gardner, 29, of Memphis, has been charged with four counts of first degree murder while committing aggravated child neglect in the deaths of her three daughters and one son – all under the age of 5.

  1. Ministry of Men's Affairs says:

    Well she should have brought the young children to NZ before killing them, then she might only be charged with infanticide, an offence with a maximum of 3 years prison that recognizes women shouldn’t be held very accountable for their violence.

  2. Ministry of Men's Affairs says:

    We’ll see what happens to this young woman in the US who is charged with encouraging her boyfriend to commit suicide, which he did.

  3. Ministry of Men's Affairs says:

    Some male is probably also to blame for this poor young NZ woman charged with a violent ‘robbery’ and putting the 77-year-old male victim in hospital with serious injuries. Why wasn’t she charged with home invasion? She’ll probably get a ‘helping’ sentence. Let’s all wear our white ribbons to show that we only care about violence towards women, not by them or against men.

  4. voices back from the bush says:

    The article mentioned they were inquiring in her mental state.
    As usual few details revealed except that -The eldest that escaped the throat cutting frenzy was from a “previous-marriage”..
    They don’t mention the f word. But the defense surely will.

  5. mic says:

    in my own opinion shes not a victim, shes sick!shes crazy! why she had to kill her own poor little children? because of her own so “called” problem? because of her marriage failure? or whaetever?? killing children or killing yourself is not the answer.. or keep them away from their father. She must have lifetime imprisonment.

  6. Man X Norton says:

    This male victim of violence in hospital is said to be “unlikely to survive”. And this man is even more unlikely to survive because he’s dead already.

    Thank goodness we have White Ribbon encouraging us all to oppose violence towards women, and implicitly encouraging us not to care about violence towards men.

    ‘Shock’ advocacy??? And/or strong frustration (much), Triassic???

    I don’t see the post being popular (especially among protective, yet all, fathers) though the message “Men get blamed for women’s actions” could or would be, imo.

    The comments add the message, again imo, that “NZ is REALLY unsafe for men”. It’s an ignored message, I have found, because of political correctness…. though an EXTREMELY important message, imo, for the horrendous damage from violence is often irreversible.

    2 things I’d like to add.

    1. As many may know, we are big on identity these days. Ie: cultural identity is massive, at the moment.

    Jim Bagnall did a lot of research and development around men rebuilding identities (after family breakups – and other interventions) while others have researched and developed around RECLAIMING identities.

    It wasn’t until my son piped up and suggested that reclaiming means, “Someone stole or took” another’s identity that I realised a group helping both men and women couldn’t use ‘reclaiming’, even though political correct for who do father’s blame, particularly ‘white skinned men [young & old]’?.

    Man, oh, man, this sure divides men and women and culture against culture. [Give it a thought]. I am thinking, ‘In this case, government money is being sought to fix a problem that’s being created in an attempt to gain government funding”.

    2. I had heard of a label for women who kill their children like this woman [Shanynthia Gardner, 29, of Memphis] and the first site I came upon from my google search offers to add some interesting and perhaps supportive information. The man who wrote the article has a number of interesting posts, imo.

    The technical term for when a mother kills her child is “maternal filicide.” An estimated 200 women kill their children every year in the United States. I use the term “kill” rather than “murder,” because the latter has a legal meaning, and even mothers who deliberately kill their children often are found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity. In fact, a 1969 study conducted by Dr. Phillip Resnick found that when mothers kill their kids, 68% are sent to mental hospitals and only 27% are sent to prison; when fathers kill their children, 72% go to prison and only 14% are hospitalized.

    In 1997, a US Department of Justice study found that children under the age of eight are more likely to be killed by their mothers, while those eight and older are likelier to be killed by their fathers. Throughout childhood, sons are more likely to be killed than are daughters.

    NOTE: Menz’s writers and commenters grow in time, imo, as they gain knowledge and experience as activists and/or advocates. As readers, I think judgement should include room for growth (think about it, dear reader 🙂 ).

    My latest post might help you understand this post 🙂

    Hi Triassic, if you are talking to me, can you provide a link (please)? 🙂

    So what happens is you get arrested before the order is served…. Then realised after having been arrested the order is then served. So when you go to the family Court the judge is told you got arrested for a breach of a protection order but not that no conviction resulted as you were wrongfully arrested as it had not been served. Then if you successfully defend the protection order and it is withdrew CYF still not on you file you were arrested for a breach of a protection and not that it was defeated…
