* Another one, is the founding of UsefulNotes/TheRomanRepublic, Lucius Brutus (a supposed ancestor to ''that'' [[EtTuBrute Brutus]]) toppled the Tarquin Kings and established a republic, however he had to snuff out a royalist counter-revolution. The problem was his own sons decided to side with the enemy and were captured and revealed to be traitors. To prove his own republican virtue and emphasize how committed he was, he ordered the execution of his own sons.

** Gaara's father the Kazekage ordered several assassination attempts on the kid. This is a rather warped form of a Bad Seed strike, as it was due to Gaara's having a monster inside him which ''was his father's fault in the first place'' (he suddenly decided Gaara was too dangerous). Gaara himself was a relatively nice kid, though lacking self control, until people started trying to kill him [[spoiler:and one of them was his caretaker and the only one who showed some degree of caring towards him, his uncle Yashamaru. Who, again, did it on orders of the Kazekage]]. That last one is what sent him off the deep end, and it was only after meeting Naruto did Gaara get any better.
** [[spoiler: And once the Kazekage is revived by Kabuto and his Edo Tensei, Gaara [[CallingTheOldManOut doesn't forget to call him out]]. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone And his dad takes it.]]]]

* Many children with disabilities (most commonly autism and cerebral palsy) or [[IllGirl fatal]] [[LittlestCancerPatient illness]] have been not only been killed by their parents, but in many cases the parents themselves are seen in the media and by supporters as sympathetic and admirable for their actions, as they claim to do it it after crossing the DespairEventHorizon and because [[MercyKill they want to spare their kid from more suffering]] or don't believe that they can get the kid the proper care to live a comfortable life.

* Julia Maesa, grandmother of the Roman emperors Elagabal and Alexander Severus, had the former and his mother - that is, her daughter - killed.

to:

* Julia Maesa, grandmother of the Roman emperors Elagabal and Alexander Severus, had the former and his mother - that is, her daughter - killed. This may have been done for the good of the empire and the dynasty: Elagabal was both a religious fanatic and a heedless hedonist (not contradictory in ancient times!), and his mother was enabling him. By contrast, Alexander Severus was a serious boy who seemed cut out for rulership, even if he would need a regency (led, of course, by Julia Maesa). It didn't work out--serious boy or no, he was dominated by his grandmother and then his own mother, which made him unpopular with the legions, and when it came time for him to go to war, he was assassinated by a military conspiracy. This not only ended the Severan dynasty, but brought on the Crisis of the Third Century (the darkest time in Roman imperial history before the collapse of the Western Empire).
