Domestic violence is a parasite. While men are often the perpetrators, there is a small percentage of women who kill their partners. Though, where does this put the males who murder their families?
It’s the topic people have been talking about for the last couple of weeks. Domestic Violence is in the headlines again after the death of Queensland mother-of-three, Hannah Clarke at the hands of her estranged husband, Rowan Baxter. What makes the conversation so difficult to talk about is the men involved in many of these horrifying cases kill their families in revenge.
Not all men are violent, but there are those who are misogynistic and think that men are the superior gender. If they think this, why get marry and sire children? As we see with males who share similar views to Rowan Baxter, wives and children become property which they control; not as normal human beings. Much of the time, these individuals are insecure or envious of their partners being more successful than them.
We’re going to examine five men who have murdered their families. Please note that these stories are graphic in nature so please do not continue on if you find the content distressing.
