A Texas mom upset after being denied food stamps shot her two children before killing herself Monday (December 5).


Police say 38-year old Rachelle Grimmer pulled a gun out at the Texas Department of Health and Human Services building in Laredo, and staged a seven-hour standoff with police while holding employees hostage. At some point during the standoff the manager of the office convinced Grimmer to let all of the employees go free in exchange for him.


He told the woman he would remain with her,” a Laredo police officer said. “He acted quite courageously.


Police negotiators were brought in to talk to Grimmer. She reportedly hung up on them repeatedly before letting the manager go unharmed at 7:45 pm. 


One of Grimmer's children, 12 year-old Ramie, updated her Facebook page at various times throughout the standoff.


At 6:50pm the girl posted as her work status, "may die today." At 11 pm she made another post that read, "tear gas… seriously."


Negotiators continued to try to talk Grimmer out of the building until she hung up for the last time at 11:45 pm. Several minutes later three gunshots were heard.


According to Fox News, police then raided the building and found Grimmer dead and her two children, Ramie and 10-year old Timothy clinging to life.


The two children were rushed to University Hospital in San Antonio where they are listed in "very critical" condition.

Meanwhile, police are trying to figure out what drove the mother to this point.

My interpretation : The mother had no way to feed her children or herself the next morning, Last hope was food stamps, denied when she knew she had no other means, ashamed of being denied and was just beyond belief, set out to make an example so that others don't get denied so easily, did not want her kids to suffer in this cruel world where even water has a price tag ... I honestly don't think she meant to hurt her kids, I think she wanted te free them from the hurt she felt they were inevitably headed towards ...

That's why ambition and education is important, no one in any first world country should be relying on food stamps long term, she might have been a burden but her kids had a chance to do better snm.

This type of sh*t wouldn't happen so damn often if America wouldn't allow people to BUY GUNS in many of the States.
