This is so incredibly sad. It piques my imagination to wonder what she just couldn't get past that she'd leave her little girl behind. Was she just convinced she'd fry for killing the PoS boyfriend? Did she know there was some other consequence, worse than death (non-government sanctioned retaliation something)? It's killing me, and we'll never know.

I originally read this on FreeThoughtProject, but I wasn't sure if a link from there is going to net me automatic derision from the quality control nags. Even here, most seem to prefer Name Brand News.




Tuttle's girlfriend, 42-year-old Otto Machelle Thomas, called 911 and confessed to shooting him before taking her own life.

“She replied, ‘He was getting ready to hit me again and I just went off,'” said Assistant Chief Randy Blankenbaker with the Dallas Police Department. “‘I killed him because he was going to hit me again.'”

Dallas police say officers tried to prevent the woman's suicide, but were too late. SWAT officers were en route to the apartment when Thomas called 911 again.

“As officers were arriving at the scene at approximately 6:18 p.m., Ms. Thomas called 911 a second time. During this call, patrol officers can be heard repeatedly giving commands to Ms. Thomas to put the gun away and unlock the door.”

Police say she left the window, telling them she was going to unlock the door when they heard a muffled gunshot.

Officers found Thomas and 40-year-old Tuttle dead inside, and Thomas' 6-year-old daughter unhurt in a bedroom.

It's unclear if the child witnessed the horrific incident.

I can't imagine leaving my kids for any reason, but for some, the pain is just too much. In the passion of the moment, they just want to Get Away from what is hurting them, even if there is no way back. When she snapped, I would bet her daughter was not on her mind, just a single minded determination not to be hit again.

That term cannot be explained fully, because the last letter stands for a swear word involving faeces. That said, you might be able to work it out for yourself using that clue!

Oh, I'm sorry. It's a euphemism for a piece of feces. I'm sure you can guess now

First question, albeit cold, some rationale is required in these types of situations. Was there any real sign of physical abuse by the boyfriend? Or did she really just get pissed off for something else, lost control, and came up with that story to make it all his fault?

You know, like 99% of women do nowadays... It's always the men's fault.

Sadness for sure, desparation for sure, but do we really know all the facts here? To the point of convicting anyone posthumously? Nope.

Watch the video at the link, or read the full story. Sorta strange circumstances... The officer was married and had a son, the woman was recently homeless and might have been just living with him after he tried to help her, or who knows, maybe he just had her stay over a couple nights to help her for whatever reason. Who really knows.

Maybe she had a sleep walking episode, or some wicked flashbacks to a man who used to beat her and she shot the officer with his own weapon or something.

Really not enough information to come to any conclusion here.
