They created Megan's Law to protect children from child predators. When are they going to create a database to protect men and women from repeat offenders of domestic violence? Not saying that it would have prevented this incident but how many men and women blindly get into relationships with individuals who are chronic batterers and they don't know it until it's too late?

How incredibly sad. It's amazing to know that this was going on as most of the rest of us were getting ready for another Friday at work and this family evidently was suffering horribly. It's just SO sad. It depresses me but I know at least I'm not in such a fatal state of mind.

I AGREE with you, but the problem is sometimes people know and they still keep going back :(

Or a database to track people who cheated on their partner or who don't buy their partner a valentine gift? That way we know not to get into a relationship with them until it's too late. You can't keep creating broader and broader databases to track and notify everyone of everything.

And kudos to you for somehow linking this to a history of domestic violence with no information at all. I'm almost surprised you didn't throw something in there complaining about gun rights while you were at it.

This!

I feel SO sorry for that innocent little girl. I hope she gets the proper help to deal with this. It would be a traumatic thing for anyone to witness, but a little kid!?:'(

Oh, and before you flip out, there already exists a database for tracking domestic violence. If you think your potential life partner is that sketchy of an individual then just pay for a background check or spend the 15 minutes it would take you online to do it yourself for free.

On a side note, I find the killing of the wife AND dog but not the daughter or himself kind of interesting. What did the dog do??

The details around using the girl as a hostage seem kind of odd. It sounds more like he brought her outside to protect her. He brought her out unarmed and released her. Perhaps he wasn't expecting that much return fire when he started shooting and figured she would be safer outside. If he had any intent to harm her he would have done so before calling 911. And what was the human shield for? Perhaps if he had a waiting vehicle to attempt an escape in, then use a shield to get there. But if he had any intention of running, he wouldn't have bothered calling the shooting in himself.

This is so unbelieveably sad. And to use his own daughter as a shield to protect HIS life??? I pray their daughter gets all the love and support from family and community that she can handle, because she is going to need it. ANOTHER domestic violence killing in Lebanon County. This has got to stop!

You're right, my first thought was that it was domestic.

I'm not trying to be right, but the way it was carried out doesn't sound accidental at all. What else could it be?

Oh, I'm sure it wasn't accidental. But you were calling for a registry of repeat domestic violence offenders because of this incident - with no knowledge of whether he had a violent history or not. Why couldn't this have been his first time? Albeit, jumping straight to homicide is probably not very common...must offenders take a while to work up to that.

sorry for the lady and the 10 year old girl. At least no police officers were killed. Everyone should respect the job they do- yes, even in little old Jackson Township Lebanon County- as you we see STUFF happens everywhere!

"According to court records, Jonathan Eisenhauer pleaded guilty to and was sentenced for recklessly endangering another person in August 2005, drunken driving in December 2003, and simple assault in July 1999."

He's got a history of eluding the police, reckless endangerment, and aggravated assault. Glad that you're sticking up for this scum bag. Cheating on your partner and killing your partner are two completely different things. It's a shame you can't see that. You're part of the problem.

It doesnt matter what color a person is, when someone snaps for some stupid reason as to no one knows why things can happen, why people do something so horrible no one knows. The poor little girl is going to have to live with the image for the rest of her life. as for her father he should rot in jail, low life!!! But as I said anyone any color an race any age for some reason could do something like this whether its at school.home,work, or just randomly out in public.. I wish for the best for the little girl she needs all the family support and comfort she can get right now... xoxox
