    Ark. Woman Befriended Mom's Killer Out of 'Spiritual Obligation' — and then He Murdered Her

    A woman who runs a bed and breakfast made a spiritual obligation to befriend and offer kindness to the man who murdered her mother and cousin back in 1996. She wrote letters to her mother's murderer while he was in the slammer, and offered her friendship to him as a "spiritual obligation." Her family warned her to stay away from him, but she wouldn't listen. After the guy was released from jail, she gave him a job at her bed and breakfast as well. To top it all off, he stole $10,000 from her. Right after the money disappeared, she fired him. He then kills her.

    She reminds me of certain woke people who would do anything to score some "I'm a good person" points. While naively believing that even the most evil people on earth elements of good in them, if we worked hard enough to change them. A delusion to help people who want to harm you. Pathological altruism plain and simple.

    She was so spiritual she turned into a ghost

    The question is, why was he released from jail after murdering her mom? That's a sad story. I think there are good hearts in the world, albeit a bit naive, but they believe they can truly help psychopaths. Some people can't be helped, I guess. :unamused:

    Not all killers receive lifetime sentences. From the article it also says the victim supported the murderer's parole, and that she felt bad about how young he was at the time. So yeah, looks like she contributed to his early release.

    It’s hard to fault a kind heart. But a sad story all the same.

    It was her duty to forgive him, knowing that he was a youthful victim of the ill-designed system and environment around him. But it was incorrect on her part to attempt to reform him without the requisite skill-sets and resources . She should have left that to the experts such as counselors, educators and psychologists with the necessary domain expertise in reformatory work.

    A good nurse can relieve the symptoms, but only a qualified and skilled physician can cure a dangerous disease.

    Perhaps she was genuinely attempting to be a good person. Jesus said to turn the other cheek. Yet if you read the Old Testament it is an entirely different matter. Revenge was quite common. In those days the man wouldn't have gone to jail but her kin would have found him in the fields and delivered him a bloody death.

    Genesis 9:6 "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man."
