Today another Florida mom shot and killed her kids, but this time she also took her own life afterward. Police authorities in Port St. John, Florida were shocked when called to the scene of a woman in a shootout with her children.
The 33-year-old mother Tanya Thomas shot all four of her children killing them instantly, before shooting herself just before the SWAT team could rescue them during a standoff. Tragically, police nor a SWAT team could save them and many young lives were lost today including; her two daughters, Pebbles Johnson, 17, and Jazlin Johnson, 13, and her two sons, Jaxs Johnson, 15, and Joel Johnson, 12.
The sick part about this story is that the kid’s ran to a neighbor’s home to tell them that they had been shot by their own mother. But when she yelled for them to return to the house, unfortunately they did, and she coldly shot them again and killed them all.
What is wrong with people these days? Is the pressure of life so tough that they feel the need to kill their own family? Obviously she was ill, because no mother in their right mind would take the life of her own child. Although some reports do say the kids were neighborhood trouble makers and out of control. Did they drive her over the edge?
The sad thing is that another Florida mom did something similar last year….when will the violence end?
