Unlike snowbird murders, most female killers know their victims, experts say
South Florida Sun-Sentinel ^ | January 10, 2014 | Tonya Alanez,

They don't strike as frequently as men, and it goes against the grain of how we view our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and daughters. When women kill, we're shocked and riveted to see those we traditionally view as nurturers, problem solvers and soothers tagged as murderers.

"Most kill for romance, love or finance," said Vernon Geberth, a former homicide commander with the New York Police Department who wrote the book "Practical Homicide Investigations." "They tend to kill less violently and in more passive ways, for the most part," he added.

Aw, they should get a pass. After all, if not for a male dominated society the crimes would never occur. /sarc.

Before the usual suspects chime in I will say for them that this wouldn’t happen if drugs were legal, and murders by women are another consequence of the war on drugs.

Somehow.

I knew this article was written by a woman as soon as I saw "problem solvers" in there. Not that women aren't problem solvers, but that doesn't automatically come to mind as a characteristic that distinguishes women from men.

Guys maybe.

Other girls not so much. In the case of an adult male victim most had been told that she (sometimes personal, sometimes a type) was nuts and they should stay away. We were usually brushed off with, "Crazy in the head, crazy in bed."

It's the male version of the "bad boy syndrome". Rarely ends well.

I know you were kidding, but I actually do not watch TV or advertisements and haven't since 2000. I don't miss it a bit. I have read on this site and others, though, that men tend to be portrayed as bumbling idiots.

Then you probably shouldn't read any books by Ann Rule. You'll never visit Washington State because it is awash in serial killers.

This wouldn't happen if we didn't emit so much carbon dioxide. Driving SUVs and burning coal to generate electricity is causing climate change, therefore women are turning to murder to support themselves.

Women are problem solvers?

I haven’t met one yet that could figure out in less than 30 minutes what shoes they were going to wear.

You should help write copy at the DNC. "Bush did it." "Bush's fault." "It was Bush."

Oh come on.

I've been watching network sitcoms and I can tell you the real problem solvers are women and gay men.

Straight white men cause all the problems.

Yeah. Makes sense out of “kill them with kindnsss.” Passively stuff your well-insured hubby with lots of prime ribs, potatoes with rich gravy and dressing, and tons of lard-crusted apple pie (a la mode). What a way to go!

they already get lighter sentences for murder than men. hardly any are ever executed in the states that still have balls enough to do the right thing.

they weep and cry and the paternal justice system looks at them like their victim daughter and gives them a lesser punishment.

I understood snowbird = “transplanted northerner.”
Are northerners moving to Florida then killing someone they don’t know?

I agree. I've always preferred the natural look, as there's no need to further enhance tits.

And "perky" is one of my favorite words; every time I hear it, I picture a great tit.

Okay, that's quite enough of that...

That's my understanding also.

That does sound rather odd, doesn't it?
