News article about a man in Maryland, David Peter Brockdorff, who met his ex-wife and 3 kids in a park supposedly to pick the kids up from for a visit.  He shot and killed everyone and then killed himself.  http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/11/23/park.deaths.ap/index.html?iref=mpstoryview.

I certainly don’t have anything against getting a divorce from someone who is violent.  I wonder what was going on in the Mother’s mind though, when she dropped the kids off with her ex-husband.  He had had a history of violence. This woman left because she obviously didn’t feel safe with the guy but she was allowing him to take the kids who were expected to fend for themselves without any supervision or protection. What if one of the children acted out of line?  Children are known to do that.  And this guy can’t handle stress.

I suppose that somebody should give the kids guns during parental visits so they can protect themselves.
