Hart family

The tragic Hart family cliff crash is renewing debate about homosexual adoptions.

Lesbian couple Jennifer Hart and Sarah Hart drove off a cliff in Mendocino, Ca. after fleeing their Woodland, Washington home amid suspicions of child abuse and neglect. Police believe all six of their adopted children were killed when the SUV went over the cliff.

Investigators are trying to determine how the two women, who have never been to Texas, managed to adopt six special needs children from the Texas area.

Adoption records are sealed by the courts, so it may be difficult to determine if state adoption officials gave the couple special preference because they were lesbians.

Police believe Jennifer Hart was driving the SUV when it crashed sometime after March 25. She was accused of abusing her children, and police believe she may have also inflicted violence on her partner, Sarah Hart.

Domestic violence experts say it is unusual for women to kill their entire families.

David Adams, a domestic violence expert who did not know the Harts, says it is doubtful that Sarah Hart took part in Jennifer's heinous plan to wipe out her family.

“It’s far more likely that this was a unilateral decision by the abusive partner to take out the whole family, basically,” he said.

Hannah Scott, a professor of criminology in Ontario, published the only research specifically studying female family annihilators.

Scott said men are typically fueled by revenge or anger, but women who kill their families may be suffering from mental illness or a delayed reaction to past battery or abuse.

Women annihilators also kill their children to keep someone else from getting custody of them.

“Real or imagined concerns about losing custody of the children may also be a trigger for female family annihilators,” said Scott, whose study documented just seven female annihilators over 40 years in the U.S.

There are no studies on same-sex couples adopting children and subjecting them to violence.

Scott said researchers should look more closely at same-sex relationships and domestic violence. “It's an area that is understudied," she said.

Past studies have shown that women in same-sex relationships inflict more violence on their domestic partners than male same-sex couples.

Those same studies show that lesbians tend to be more violent toward their domestic partners than heterosexual couples.

“Abuse is not about violence; it’s about control,” says Beth Leventhal, executive director of The Network/La Red in Boston. “You can be just as controlling of someone if you are small -- as if you’re large. It’s about using violence or any other means of gaining and maintaining control.”

During the Obama administration, there was increased funding to address LGBT concerns, according to the Advocate. It isn't clear if the funding addressed the rampant mental illness that is prevalent in the LGBT community.

    "Mental illness is usually a factor when women kill entire families"

    ummm, yeah.... we had pretty much figured out that part, but these two crafty bitches were also EVIL.

    let's not stigmatize all mentally ill people by associating them with this type of f*ckery.

  • TheOwley

    I always thought mental illness was a factor when humans kill other humans. There are variations of mental illness. Family annihilators are the worst as they take their entire family out.

    "...studies show that lesbians tend to be more violent toward their domestic partners than heterosexual couples."

    This is a little surprising, if true.

  • 100milesperhour

    It's possible to have a momentary psychotic break & allow your bad emotions to completely take over, but that ain't crazy. It's evil.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Them broads was demons.. Point blank... Thee end .... Blame mental illness all day ... Fact is some people are dark ... Keep thinking you can treat these type of fools by slapping a medical name to it .... The vessel is spiritual first despite what a doctor say .... With that being said these types can't be treated ... I mean you can try but wasted energy ... These women weren't shyt ... Flat out .. Those babies are free now and free from this shyt show down here ...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. Mental illness is real, but I think when people "snap" and kill family members (especially murder-suicide situations), it's just too easy and convenient to blame it on mental illness. To me, it's just straight-up evil behavior.

    Mental illness is easily blamed for everything wrong in our society nowadays. These women were racist excrement, with harmful intention to commit fraud under the guise of goodwill. May they rot and burn slowly in hell..

  • TheOwley

    That's a special kind of mental illness. You really have to have no heart to carry that one out.


    Wow poor children..... ??? uhmmm so we still pretending and ignore indicators and putting children in awful situations because America wants to be politically correct just giving kids to any ole damn body...
    So sad America has lots it’s damn mind.

  • bhavana

    Yeah, you would have to be mentally unstable to kill someone. Unless, of course, you killed in self-defense.

  • Kemi

    There are large number of ppl in America with mental issues, but will NEVER hurt children. This is a convenient excuse to label these women as PURE EVIL!!!

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    This is why I say women are the worst kind of killers because they usually almost always kill their family members, husbands and their own kids. Scary.

    Even in nature.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im sorry I do not believe this and I am offended that mental illness is getting the blame. Takes away from truly crazy ass folks. And if mental illness IS the culprit I blame whatever state they got those kids from bc these two hoes were supposed to have undergone an assessment when they got those kids. Texas I think?

  • Trace da Ace

    There is NO explanation for this, at all. Bottom line is they should do psych evals on the adopter (sp?) parents...wait don't they do that already?? Or supposed to?? My heart and soul goes out to these precious babies.....may they forever rest in heaven...

    Those are the smart ones to be honest they just gave it them a title ... Some of the people they call mental are thee most creative people in the world and they love children .. In fact typically are childlike ...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Demons hate children ... But God loves them.. . So God brings them home .. Away from strife ... Regardless of what many can't see .. God knows the whole truth either way God saves ...and uses every situation to enlighten ...

  • Kemi

    You’re so correct!! There are misconceptions surrounding mental illness. It is broad disease that fall under different categories/classification. It is a continuum of severity ranging from mild to moderate to severe.

    Not everyone with mental illness are evil minded!!!

  • goat

    She knew what tha fcuk she was doing was wrong. They knew they were about to be in trouble with the laws and that their privilege might not save them.

    All white people have mental issues. Consuming raw meet and f*cking animals will do that to you.

    Just stay away from those manly ass studs and you won't have to worry. Studs are known to be violent and many want to emulate black men. Its SICK!

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    One day my husband and I were eating at this restaurant when a pack of gay men came in. Most of their necks were scratched up and you could tell they had a wild night of fighting because they was still riled up and cursing each other. I think gay men are way worse than gay women! They are very catty!!


    It’s just creepy how quick America throws children of color in all kinds of homes... l like wtf? Did anybody stop and think why do these women want these children.. they were just so quick to hand the kids out to anybody. Because of the color of the kids they will not even get a proper discussion or consideration. It’s the same when all those children who are disadvantaged get taken advantage of by adults.

    Homosexuals... which includes lesbians, men who think they are women, and women who think they are men, are too neurotic to raise healthy, mentally stable children. As an insider, I get to observe them in their natural state and trust me, their everyday lives are nothing like the media portrayal.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Fact: it costs less to adopt black children because they are considered less desirable.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    In the 80s, I used to sneak into the gay bars on the north side of Chicago. Whenever a fight erupted, it was a tranny or a manly lesbian involved. However, this new batch of male homos is treacherous! Most of the gay boys I used to run with were too cute and fashionable to be fighting in the streets.

  • teather

    I just can't comment on this story without viciousness. So, I'll just say RIP, Young Princes and Princesses. God is with you.


    Something is up and the people don’t never stand up for the truly less fortunate these poor babies they keep letting all these weirdos adopt.

  • the guest


    I won't give these evil so called adoptive mothers a mental illness pass.

    They were not depressed.

    They committed criminal child abuse and were calculative in running from accountability and were calculative in killing the children so they could never talk.

  • the guest

    Exactly. Mentally ill, my hind end. They weren't too mentally ill premeditate killing themselves and the murder of six children to run from the law.

  • dontgetblocked

    The women simply offered to take all of the siblings. There were three from one family and three from another. They were handed the black children despite being lower income individuals. White children would never be put in this situation. They're too valuable.

  • Malcom Flex

    Big house schooled families typically have sexual abuse issues. That's the first thing I though when they killed everybody, the law was closing in on them being pedos. It's the next chapter of that story.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Most of the children in "the system," have absolutely no one on their side. Everyone they come in contact with has an agenda and the children's best interest has nothing to do with their goals.



  • Jethro

    What's this, a White-Splain Moment?

  • Allihave2say

    They adopted the for their social security checks. They never cared for the children, they were objects used for checks and their own personal sustainment.

  • ImWoke

    My heart breaks for these precious children. I’m shocked that this couple was allowed to adopt six special needs children. Most people find it difficult to deal with one, but six is unimaginable.
