    I don't want to get into the specifics of this case, but it seems like yet another woman murdered by a man. It's at least fifteen in the last year. Following on top of the anniversary of the Aisling Murphy.

    There will have been a reason, and I am sure there are some people who care about it.

    there's nothing stopping the "men get killed too!" lads from all meeting up and doing your own vigils when a man is murdered, if you're so concerned?

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,955 ✭✭✭✭Thelonious Monk

    yes because vulnerable women can never get into precarious relationships with abusive men. f**king hell...

    Men kill more people, mostly other men. No consolation the female victims but that’s how it is.

    The latest on this killing is the main suspect is seriously mentally ill (worse issues than Prince Harry), with a “history” of mental issues, and was seen soon after the killing ranting about Jesus and the Devil etc.

    I think regrettably there really isn't a solve here.

    Women will always tend to be the victims of murderous crimes and domestic violence. It is very sad.

    There is nothing that can really be done. The fact remains that there is enough instances of women being murdered, by males. It is a fact. Women will tend to not use violence to get what they want , they can be extremely violent and really annoying to live with and incredibly stupid, dull and frustrating to deal with, a lot of the time, but they are less violent than males.

    But there will be no societal fix here. It is not an Irish problem? It is not being exclusively being perpetrated by foreign eddeners either.

    If you are a women, please listen to me. Stop hanging around, or falling in love, or sleeping with, or taking gifts from, or having notions about changing that absolute whanker you think gives a shít about you when he apologises to you after raising his voice, or shouting at you, or that time he flicked a limp wrist at you, or pushed you into the sofa, or laughed at you during sex , or punched you or let you witness him being violent with someone else..... this is your asshole that has potential to take your life during a row one evening, or when he wants custody of your kids, or when he wants his car back or when you nag at him for drinking and farting in bed to often.... that's the guy that might just kill ye one time?

    There is no cure for women getting murdered by men, it is going to happen. There are billions of really nice, civil, good men out there, not killing women and not living like chunts do. Go get one and get on with your life. Get anyone who is violent to you out of your life ... now. It is always too late otherwise and that person is not going to change.

    PS. Most men who murder women are strong and attractive looking, you won't think they were capable of it, that's why it is so common, relatively speaking.... it is you own fault for not seeing the signs, when you see them , get the phuck outta there and don't look back.

    The only area of that should be up for discussion is the failure of a legal system we live with.

    People dont turn into murderers overnight, there are almost always warning signs, convictions, complaints, previous assaults etc etc.

    Step 1 is to remove bail for any men that are charged with physical violence towards women.

    Step 2. Is to remove the possibility of suspended sentences for same.

    The legal system can be a lot stronger in many areas.

    Perfect example:

    There’s no connection whatsoever between that case and any other cases. It’s not as though a person who commits murder is in any way considerate of other murder victims.

    Well in alot of cases when men are murdered, their own actions have been a contributory factor i.e. drugs related/feud related etc. ....the saying "if you run with dogs you'll end up with fleas" somewhat springs to mind.

    Happens in just as many cases where women are the victims that saying is offered as an explanation for the perpetrators actions. It’s not any more true in those cases than it is in cases where men are the victims.

    The latest on this killing is the main suspect is seriously mentally ill (worse issues than Prince Harry), with a “history” of mental issues, and was seen soon after the killing ranting about Jesus and the Devil etc.

    Aye, that’s as likely to fuel negative stereotypes about people who have some form of mental illness is all, which can be used as an explanation either in defence of their actions, or as an explanation for their actions, absent of the fact that having some form of mental illness isn’t any indication of a predisposition to violence, let alone murder. A good example of the phenomenon is in this recent case where two expert psychiatrists disagree on what caused the woman to commit murder -

    Michael O‘Higgins SC, who acted for Ms Anderson, said there were “ongoing difficulties on the defence side” arising from a report by consultant psychiatrist Prof Harry Kennedy and the decision to plead guilty to manslaughter was informed by this.

    The court had previously heard that Prof Kennedy disagreed with Dr Brenda Wright, a consultant psychiatrist called by the defence who said Ms Anderson was suffering from bipolar affective disorder and as a result of this was unable to refrain from stabbing Mr Kelly.

    Prof Kennedy said Ms Anderson’s behaviour was better explained by cannabis intoxication. Intoxication cannot be used as a defence under the Criminal Law (Insanity) Act 2006.

    The gender grift pays big bucks. Just look at the Irish Times/ Indo/ Journal etc.

    Endless identity politics.

    @Count Dracula, excuse me for being one of those silly ....

    ...incredibly stupid, dull and frustrating

    females that make up half of the population, but... did you actually just blame female victims ... is you own fault

    for "deserving" to be murdered??? 😧

    With a comment like that, I would think twice before referring to anyone as 'incredibly stupid' and 'frustrating', cos that remark wins top prize.

    The passive aggressive types are the worst?

    Passive aggressives moaning about people getting murdered.... total pathos.

  • Is the number of homicides of women and girls by men increasing?

    Huge amount of murders generally , hard keep track of all the different murders in Ireland these days..Ashtown, Finglas, Carrigaline etc etc

    Soft on crime judges , Solicitors telling yarns about repeat offenders, too few guards & not enough prison space = no Deterrent anymore

    "when men are murdered, their own actions have been a contributory factor"

    Nice victim blaming there.
