I read this article a few days ago. This woman is an attention seeking parasite who is using the massacre in Newtown to get attention and, most likely, perform an end-run on the system to get her son admitted into a psychiatric facility. Her words about her son were not the words of a loving mother, but of a woman desperate to remove her son from her home. Her situation is nothing like Nancy Lanza's, nor any of the other mass murderers she listed to attempt to gain sympathy for herself. Witnesses report that Adam Lanza was quiet and withdrawn most of the time. Not one witness has reported an act of violence prior to the shooting. Liza Long's son is the victim of his mother's inability to care for him, she is not his victim. Shame on her!
