An Example of Female Domestic Violence

In July, South Carolina mom, Jessica Edens murdered her two children as well as one other women.  Her husband, Benjamin Edens, had filed for a divorced and they were involved in a custody dispute over their daughter. Jessica's son was from her first marriage.

Around 5 p.m. July 13, Jessica Edens drove to a Greenville, South Carolina apartment complex where her estranged husband lived and shot 28-year-old Meredith Rahme while she was in the parking garage. She died at the scene. Benjamin Edens and Rahme worked together. Jessica believed the two were dating Police, however, said they were uncertain of any romantic relationship and described them only as co-workers. Edens' children were in the Jeep when she murdered Rahme.

Edens immediately escaped the garage and drove the Jeep to the Greenville-Pickens Speedway where she then murdered her two children with a .40 caliber handgun. The violent and vindictive mom placed one final phone call to her husband before turning the gun on herself. According to the Greenville News, she left a phone message stating  “Everyone you love is gone. Do you hear me? I’m about to be gone too."

Inside the Jeep, Jessica left three notes. The 1st note was addressed to her first husband: “To Nate, I don’t know what to say. You gave me my first child. I will be forever greatful (sic) because of you,” she said. “I never meant to cause you as much pain as this.” The 2nd note was addressed to her family: “To my parents and my sister, I am so sorry for the pain I am causing all of you. You’ve all always been there for me and I love you all so much.” The final note was addressed to her second husband, Ben: "You have caused me more pain that I’ve ever been in in my life. You have caused my children pain. I hope you rot one day for what you have done to me and my kids … I hope you live with pain and shame and guilt for the rest of your life,”

Below an Inquistr.com  article summarizing this story, a university feminist wrote a comment. Her remark, the highest ranked comment on the article appears below

The feminist would not hold Jessica accountable for her crimes. Instead, she took the tact of implying husbands have no attachment to their children and relationships with men should be devalued.

Also, several news outlets speculated about Eden's reason for committing murder.  Some concluded that Ben and Meredith may have been involved in an affair during Ben's marriage and this is what caused Jessica to kill everyone. Thus, blame was shifted from Jessica to Ben. Whether or not he and Meredith were in a relationship is irrelevant information. Can a husband justifiably kill his cheating wife? Can he shoot their kids? Can he kill her boyfriend? Husbands killing family members is always considered domestic violence by the media.  

Women such as Jessica Edens should be thought of as no different than these husbands. Women like Edens should be afforded no sympathy. They should be given no excuses.

Jessica Edens is an example of female domestic violence.
