Yes, it was disgusting and gruesome.
But she'd been institutionalized again and again. Her doctors pleaded with her and her husband to NOT HAVE anymore children. She was verifiably *insane* for most of the last 8 years or so.
But she did this knowingly and intentionally. She knew she was doing it and she knew she was wrong. I give you that. But does motive not enter AT ALL? yes.. yes it does. He motive was to kill the children because the voices told her to.
I'm just sort of sickened.
The last shrink she saw who took her off all her anti psychotic meds should be held liable in some way. Her husband should be held liable in some way.
And they JOKINGLY say "she may avoid the death penalty" ... she's in *texas*...
There's no way in hell she'll avoid the death penalty.
There is a seperate law in texas for the death of a child under the age of six?
There is a punishment for killing a child under the age of six that is different from the punishment for killing a child over the age of six? ..... *why*?
I don't think we should be rallying around her... but I don't think she knowingly plotted the murder of her children and she should be *treated* not killed for it.
I'm just... GRR.
