TO TAKE REVENGE ON HER EX-HUSBAND - The prosecutor investigating the death of a 6-year-old boy found murdered in a gated community - a private neighborhood outside Buenos Aires City - in the Buenos Aires province, said that he was “almost certain” that the mother was the perpetrator of the crime. He also confirmed that in February the mother’s ex-husband had reported her for wanting to kill her own children. According to the husband, the mother of the young boy, who lived in the San Eliseo gated community, had wanted to “give them sleeping pills and tie a rope around their necks and strangle them to death.” Public prosecutor in President Perón Leandro Heredia also stated that the mother had been put under two psychological tests which determined that she was “fit to declare, although it’s recommended she go under psychiatric watch because it is possible she may try to hurt herself or commit suicide.”

Public prosecutor confirmed that according to the autopsy, the child had water in his lungs and he died of a cardio-respiratory attack, with evidence showing he resisted the attack.  The woman accused of choking her six year old son to death, a Brazilian native Adriana Cruz, aged 41, bluntly said “I killed him to take revenge on his father,” while addressing reporters as she was taken into custody in La Plata, Buenos Aires province’s capital. Judge Juan Pablo Massi said that the lead suspect should be confined to a prison with psychiatric assistance. Yesterday, La Plata’s Judiciary officially ordered the arrest of Cruz and charged her with “first-degree murder”. Carlos Vázquez, the father of the six-year-old found dead, is also under investigation. The judge now wants to look further in a complaint filed by Carlos Vázquez months earlier. “in which he states Adriana Cruz has threatened the life of the minors before, making him fear for the life of his children,” the judge said.

In the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, a Brazilian woman of 41, Adriana Cruz, who publicly admitted to killing her six years to get back at her ex-husband now must undergo psychiatric interviews to determine their mental state, however, the Court held that, in principle, “she is attributable” because there are “plenty of evidence” against her and that the penalty she could receive would be of “imprisonment or life imprisonment.” We must eradicate the impetus of taking revenge and injure others.

Indian saints have classified the nature of human beings in three broad groups - ‘Sattvika’, ‘Rajasika’ and ‘Tamasika’.  ‘Sattvika’ people are wise, sincere, generous and non violent.  As such they have an altruistic mentality and render disinterested (non-motivated) service.  ‘Rajasika’ people are egoists.  However they are active and do good to others with the motive of getting a return of their actions for self-aggrandizement.  They won’t tolerate harm to themselves.  They have got the spirit of taking revenge.  ‘Tamasika’ people are indolent, out and out egoists and of violent temper. ... If we know that the infliction of harm to other animate beings is detrimental to our own interest and will bring harm in return, we will not be encouraged to harm any individual, nay even any sentient being of the world.
