Man gasses kids on Fathers' day.

After picking up his daughter Amy and son Owen for a weekend access visit, he told his wife: 'I've left you a present. I'll make the papers, just you watch.

He then drove his Land Rover to a country lane and attached a hose to the exhaust pipe, feeding it through the window before leaving the engine running.
'I've left you a present': Message from husband who 'gassed his children' on Father's Day | Mail Online

He was going through a divorce with his wife and decided that he could get revenge on her by offing his two children? Sick. People like this deserve to go to jail and rot until the Sun engulfs the Earth.

I don't understand how anyone could do this. Seriously, there has to be something horribly wrong with a person to kill a child, let alone their own children.

This sickens me, absolutely sickens me.

I'm literally in tears right now. :cry:

What would make someone do that?
Did you read the article or OP? It seems like he wanted to get some kind of revenge on his wife for the divorce or some dispute.

WOW, I don't even know what to say. Shit. Seriously, if you're life is bad, just go 50 miles in any direction, start a new life and start over. You don't have to become a psycho and kill your own kids. :\

Yeah, he had a tough divorce and lost his job or something. Still seems like he acted a little crazy, just a little.

"He told one friend: 'I've lost my wife, I've lost my kids and I've lost my job. Now I'm going to lose my house. But I'd rather burn it down than see that bitch get it.'

What a wacko.

That's just sick! If he showed any of the crazy symptoms while they're married, I am not surprised the wife is divorcing him. He's so selfish. If he can't take the idea of losing the kids, why not just commit suicide himself. Why kill the kids too? Like that is a better option for them? Ugh!

Something must of seriously snapped in his head for someone to take such desperate measures, I highly doubt his actions were in revenge of his ex-wife but more of a prevention to stop those kids existing in 'his eyes' such a cruel world and experencing the pain that he is going through.
Im not defending his actions, killing kids is just plain wrong, but something is seriously wrong with the family law and child custody system if a person can resort to such desperate measures and can see no other alternative but death.

I have to disagree. I'm confident that what he did was out of revenge and a desire to make his estranged wife suffer.

Are you saying the "system" should have been able to predict his actions?
