That’s how a prosecutor described the scene when Brockton police officers arrived at the Maguire Road home, about 1:07 p.m. Now, the question both sides have to answer is – was it murder or self defense? Smith, 53, was arraigned Monday in Brockton District Court on a charge of murder, but her defense attorney claims she was strangled by the man prosecutors say is the victim.

We’re just saying, if you choose to, make sure that you are securing them correctly.”

In 2013, suicide surpassed homicide as the third leading cause of death for kids in the US, a ranking it has retained ever since. The recession that began in 2007 is one reason suicide rates rose in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Guns are another. From 2002 to 2007, rates of firearm suicides among US kids were falling. But from 2007 to 2014, that figure increased 60% and is now the highest it has ever been, according to a study published recently in Pediatrics.

Twenty-two years ago my sister-in-law and three nieces, ages six, three and six months, were shot dead at point blank range by her husband, the children’s father, in Scotts Mills. At the time of this shooting, my sister-in-law and her husband were in the midst of a divorce and she had taken out a restraining order against him. Yet, even with that restraining order, her husband was able to acquire a shotgun that morning. If he would have never gotten his hands on a gun, I might be celebrating my nieces’ birthdays today.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
