Everyone strives for their minute of fame and some, like this lunatic, get it. Hope she is happy!

She's a progressive, atheist, environmental-case. Bad combo to be when trying to deal with something like losing a child. With no God or faith to lean on, I guess this is what people do. A shame. I hope she rethinks her beliefs before she succeeds with her solutions to life's hardships.

I wonder how PROGRESSIVE she was after her 2005 5th degree domestic assault conviction? I wonder if anyone knows what 5th degree domestic assault is... Yelling and screaming most likely. How many parents are guilty of that?

I noticed that you don't seem to have any smarta$$ remarks about the kid in WI who held his classroom hostage for 6 hours. So what's the deal, Zing, do you only have contempt for people from outside of Cheeseland? And you call this woman nuts?

I suggest NOT getting an education from a school that's so sleazy it has to troll through comment forums to find students. Just my opinion.

I feel her pain with the loss of a child. No parent should have to lay their child to rest. She will get off on a temporary insanity plea. I hope onces this is all over and done with, she gets the help that she needs.

Yes, I agree. She's lost her mind due to the grief of losing her son. She'll go to court and people will write lots of reports about her situation. Then she'll get ordered into some kind of treatment. I pray she finds God out of all this.

who are we kidding... she'll probably get elected governor in 4 years, beating Dayton in the primary on the "less crazy than him" platform.

She is a very progressive, environmentalist, atheist wacko? This lady need the truth of Jesus in her life. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess. This is a case where she could have used a gun. A screwdriver is a terrible way to kill ones self.

I'm so grateful that I have never lost a child. I would like to think I would handle it differently, but I still have sympathy for her. I'm also grateful that nobody was hurt or killed during the pursuit. Hopefully she will get the help she clearly needs.

I hope the husband gets as far away from her as possible. She needs to be locked up so she cannot harm herself or others. She could have killed her husband, she could have injured firefighters and driving her car who knows might have gotten plowed down in her path.
Being the progressive that she is, it's not her fault. It's Bush's fault.

Are you really that stupid and self-centered? If your god exists than how come the coward never shows his face?

This woman is at the end of herself. No sense can be made of that. She is one of those people who tipped from genius to screwed up. I knew her once upon a time for many years. It was her disbelief and my belief in God that seperated us. The woman I knew was like a sister and reached out to people. The rope is no longer tethered and she came to the end of it and fell. Please try not to judge so harshly, she has other children. They all need prayers whether she wants them or not. God bless you Ronnie.
