|Put them to death|
|Put the in a institution|
Quoting Love = Moco and Bubba:" DH and I are both for the death penalty. IMO there is no excuse for murder. There can't be rehabilitation ... [snip!] ... another human being let alone their own children. Personally I believe in an eye for an eye. But that is just my two cents. "
Quoting Tegan/Race/Lynox/Essyx mo:" Andrea Yates...she was unstable before it happened for a long time and had gotten help alot but they ... [snip!] ... signs of PPD again...she didn't get the death penalty. Idk..it would just depend on the severity of the illness to me I guess."Well, her husband also KNEW she had severe PPD and left her alone with the children.. Her doctor told her NOT to have any more babies because having one more "would be the straw that would break the camels back" and her husband pushed her.
Quoting Thisperyears:" Besides, being found not guilty by reason of insanity is very uncommon. less than 1% of all court cases ... [snip!] ... a 26% success rate, and out of the successful pleas, 90% of the defendants were previously diagnosed with a mental illness."
Quoting The Doctor:" Good stats, thank you. It's incredibly difficult to try, and even if you do plead NGBRI you're either going to jail, or a mental institution (probably for longer than you would have been in jail)."I'd rather be in prison than a mental institution.
Quoting Thisperyears:" I'd rather be in prison than a mental institution."
Quoting Devil's Advocate:" But she also was not institutionalized where she could get the help she deserved. She was imprisoned. "
Quoting Back to Noob Status:" I also want to add that if it was a serial killer like Ted Bundy, then no, I don't think they should be ever allowed out in society again. But I think he got the easy way out."Exactly.
Quoting K. P. Walsh:" Exactly. AND, not to mention, they can be beneficial to law enforcement. Jeffery Dahmer? We studied him. We learned a lot from him. "
Quoting Back to Noob Status:" He actually went to my school and lived in my dorm room for a quarter. Creepy!"
Quoting K. P. Walsh:" Well, her husband also KNEW she had severe PPD and left her alone with the children.. Her doctor told ... [snip!] ... back" and her husband pushed her. I'm not saying he should have faced charges necessarily, but that was pretty damn negligent. "
Quoting Back to Noob Status:" He actually went to my school and lived in my dorm room for a quarter. Creepy!"Uh yeah!
Quoting K. P. Walsh:" Uh yeah! That's crazy. I'm strangely intrigued by him. I watched his biography. In a strange, sick way, ... [snip!] ... have felt remorse, but didn't. I mean, he understood normal people felt remorse, but he didn't. I just find it interesting. "
