Just saw this breaking headline on faux. Couldn't find too much on the net yet - especially how they were murdered. Gawd, I hope the perp didn't use a gun. If so, this will be another nail in the coffin of the 2nd amendment. But even if not, I think the issue will be pressed that we are so depressed that we can no longer be trusted with firearms.

God rest their souls anyway. The taking of innocent human life is never good.

Posted: 6:03 pm PDT April 4, 2009Updated: 6:43 pm PDT April 4, 2009 PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. -- Five children have been found slain in a Pierce County home near Orting Saturday afternoon, reported KIRO 7 Eyewitness News. Officers said they appeared to have been killed by their father, who was found dead at a location in King County earlier on Saturday, Pierce County Sheriff's Department spokesman Ed Troyer said. After the father was found dead, officers went to the Pierce County home located in the 20400 block of 135th Avenue Court East to check on the welfare of the children and found them slain. The five children, ages 6 to 17 years old, appeared to have died of homicidal violence, Troyer said. There were four girls and one boy, who was 7 years old. Officers are at the scene.

Gawd! What is this world coming to? It feels like everyday something like this is happening. I know it's getting bad but really do people have to resort to this? God rest their souls

Think he did use a firearm... like that would have mattered. These were children, could have just as easily stabbed them in their sleep. What is up with these cowards?

Hey... If your life sucks and YOU want to off yourself then do the world a favor and let your family live on. Better yet, do something useful, get a life insurance policy and "go hiking" and "accidentally" fall off a cliff (look first to make sure you won't fall on someone).

We have seen both men and women do this over the years... kill their damned children.

Guess what... Let them live their lives you sick bastards! And yes, they will do fine without you (for those who may think they are "sparing" their children from the world....idiots!)
