    Default PND Mother in US shot and killed *possibly distressing

    http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/201...police-pursuit

    Reading things like this really disturbs me, especially as a past sufferer of PND. Reading it now in my current frame of mind I just think "what the **** was she thinking?... Nut job!". But then looking back on my past experience with the illness and some of the crazy thoughts I had and the crazy things I did, I just feel so sad for her and her baby.

    Yes... Heroically shooting an unarmed woman while her baby was in the car.

    She was driving towards the officers in her car which can be a pretty deadly weapon. They weren't to know if she was affected by drugs or alcohol and she was endangering her baby and others. Sad story, but I don't think it's fair at all to blame to police.

    Bit of a silly thing to say. A vehicle when driven at speed and in a dangerous manner is considered a weapon, I can't see the Police had a choice.

    Its not heroic, no matter the reason. The womans dead, her baby is lucky its not. I understand why the police had to shoot her, but it's still not heroic. Its a tragedy.

    That poor woman I cannot understand what she was going through and I refuse to criticise her as I have suffered PND and know a mind can get very dark but I for 1 am glad the family only have 1 body to morn! It's not easy being a mother and I hope the family can forgive her as it is an impossible situation to ever understand! RIP x

    She drove towards the WHITE HOUSE in her car with her baby on board. What did she expect would happen? Now because of her stupid actions her baby is without a mother. It's very sad, but I'm finding it hard to feel much sympathy for her.

    If she was depressed she most likely wasn't thinking how her actions were going to play out.
    She most likely didn't even think of what would happen.
    Depression is an illness not a choice.

    This may have been a case of 'suicide by cop' where somebody does something to try and cause the police to open fire.

    If she was severely depressed I wouldn't be surprised if this was unfortunately her intention.

    I just read this in an article about PND and thought it was a good explanation:

    Depression is much more than a condition of low mood and apathy, of ‘feeling down’ — it messes with your head. Serious PND is frequently accompanied by feelings of shame, guilt, ‘failure’, even anger. In the toxic environment of a severely depressed mind, disordered thoughts can masquerade as rational ones – like the fact you’re a burden and your family would be better off without you.'
