It didn’t take long for another moocher to strike:
A woman in the border city of Laredo, Texas who was angry because she had been denied food stamps killed herself and shot and critically wounded her two children late on Monday, authorities said on Tuesday.
The 38-year-old woman entered the Texas Health and Human Services Commission office in downtown Laredo on Monday afternoon and demanded to speak to a supervisor, said investigator Joe Baeza of the Laredo Police Department.
The woman, whom he declined to identify, pulled out a handgun and started walking through the office, threatening several employees, he said.
"She had issues and felt that she had been let down by social services in general," Baeza told Reuters on Tuesday. "She was making all sorts of outlandish claims."
She took an office supervisor hostage in a room in the office, he said, and a SWAT team managed to evacuate the other three dozen people in the office and clear the area.
After two hours of negotiations, the woman allowed the male supervisor to go free, but she remained in the office with her two children, a 10-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl.
"About 11:45 last night, she hung up the phone with negotiators, and a little bit later, negotiators heard three shots," Baeza said on Tuesday. "What had happened was that she had shot each of her children once and herself once."
The children were airlifted to a hospital in San Antonio in extremely critical condition, he said. The mother was dead at the scene, he said.
The sad fact about this story is that she was only denied because her application was incomplete.
Of course she was mentally ill. But you have to be a little bit crazy to be a moocher. And I fully expect more stories like this to appear as more and more welfare services get slashed.
On a side note, it is high time we start shunning women who are single moms. I am not talking about divorced women, as it depends on the nature of the divorce, but women who have never gotten married in the first place, have kids, and their fathers are nowhere to be seen. It is becoming a moral imperative that our society shun such sluts and treat them like the scum queens that they are (throw them in the mud).
