Alabama man shoots girlfriend from behind in front of her two children because he "was tired of arguing with her."

According to investigators, 39-year-old Jeremy Hardin walked up and shot Jody Marie Watson, 38, from behind, telling police that he was just tired of arguing with her. 

Dispatchers received Hardin’s 911 call at approximately the same time they received a second 911 call from a neighbor who said Watson’s two children had come to their house and said their mother had been shot. 

Chief Deputy Randy Christian said the small children witnessed the shooting but were not injured. Watson also had an older son, but he was at school when the incident occurred. 

According to detectives, Hardin said that he and Watson had a history of fighting and that he wanted it to stop. Police report that they received three prior reports of domestic violence at the home — the most recent call taking place on March 9. 

Officers were dispatched for the March call, but Watson refused to press charges.

She probably didn't press charges because she desperately wanted the relationship to work out despite the fact that he was assaulting her.

And what does she get for giving him another chance? She gets murdered in front of her children.

And once again I have every confidence that this man convinced himself and his girlfriend that the gun was there to protect them.

But it so rarely seems to work out that way.


  1. And of course it never crossed his mind that if he was so tired of fighting with her, all he had to do was pack his bags and leave . . . .

      Or to simply go outside the house and walk around the neighborhood for a couple of hours.

      A killer lies about his reasons. "tired of fighting" probably isn't the reason. Killers want to control their victims. He probably thought the woman was going to escape his control, so he shot her.

      His "reason" is the self-justification of a sociopath.

    Evil. He said he was tired of arguing with her, but instead of leaving her and starting a new life, he would rather kill her, and right in front of her children, to traumatize them for life.

  3. $50,000 bond for what clearly is first- or second-degree murder. Black kids get that much for possessing one joint or for simply DWB (Driving While Black).

    Oh, wait . . . I see . . . this is Alabama.

      Well you see, Old Redneck, in Alabama the real threat to society is not armed people who have killed others, but gay people expressing their love for each other. Now that is a "crime" that Alabama does not tolerate.

      I can see him getting off with no charges being filed in Alabama. All he has to do is explain to Chief Justice Roy Moore, "I'm a white male and a Christian. It was God's will. Jesus has forgiven me. I've suffered enough already."

      Innocent... case closed.

    Many women know a restraining order can be a death warrant. Pressing charges is not always safe.

      True. A woman in an unsafe relationship, especially if she has kids, will stay because she believes if she stays he might kill her; but if she leaves he will kill her. She takes the abuse so he doesn't turn on the kids.

    I consider it likely that she was killed because she'd told him she was leaving. It's about his need to control.

    Americans have proven over and over that they are not responsible enough to own guns.
    Get rid of all guns, even the police.

    Domestic violence and guns. Ask Track Palin about that one.

    Freaking Neanderthal! When is the world going to wake up!
    Quit treating women like they don't matter!
    Stop voting Republican!
    I am sick of this shit! I happen to be a male.

    She looks like a caring happy type but that look in his eyes sez it all. Psycho from Psycho city. Poor children. Now the world will pay for the crime done by the unstable man with a gun. The Repugnants have a more blood on their hands than Hitler all because they believe it's a man's right to be a rootin' tootin' gun slinger. Shitheads.

    I have to ask the obvious question here: Why the HELL did that man still have a gun?! There were THREE prior reports of domestic violence in the home, yet he was still allowed to have his weapon. The law should be changed so that after the first incident of DV, the perpetrator's guns should be taken away until he has been proven to be not guilty after a trial, and then only after completing a DV class. After multiple incidents, you just shouldn't be allowed to own a gun, period. And if you're found with an illegal gun, instant jail time. You'd think this would be obvious.

    "Chief Deputy Randy Christian said the small children witnessed the shooting but were not injured." Hey, Deputy, lets play a game, arm your wife then have her shoot you in front of your kids. There's injury there, asshole, you just can't see the forest for the trees.

    I hope they play the banjos at her funeral.
