Woman kills 2 family members, tells police she's Jesus

Kern1 A Georgia woman who killed two relatives sat in an interrogation room - blood streaked on her hands and face - and told police she was Jesus.

Amy Kern, left, said she drove 400 miles overnight to Port St. Lucie to kill her father because he was Satan and she was Jesus.

When she couldn't find him, she started down Interstate 95, shooting at vehicles.

She then decided she needed to kill her grandmother, but first she stopped at her aunt's house.

She fatally shot her aunt's boyfriend, William Chapman, 59, before continuing to the home of her grandmother, Donna Kern, 80.

She beat her grandmother - who fought back - with a tire iron.

Family members said Amy Kern is bipolar schizophrenic, who suffered from post partum depression after having a baby.

She had tried to check herself into a mental hospital in Georgia after midnight on Saturday.

 The Palm Beach Post has the story.

She is Jesus! I saw her in my dream last night.

That's precisely why I prefer owning a non lethal self defense weapon over a lethal one. Nobody knows when someone you love might use a shotgun (for instance) against his/her family members or against himself/herself (you must remember that depression is not an uncommon disease, and that one of its many symptoms is suicidal thoughts). A non lethal weapon like a TASER device will still help you defend yourself against a criminal, but without inflicting any harm on yourself or those you love in the event something unfortunate ever happens (a family member attacking one of his/her own, for instance).
