Yet another person who should be removed from society for life who will be placed in a mental institution, given some medicine, and then let free to kill again. Wonderful.

The "I was insane that day" plea has to be one of the dumbest things i have ever heard.

The problem is that there is a difference between "mentally ill" (which she clearly is) and "insane". Yates was not insane by the laws of the state. She clearly knew what she was doing was wrong, otherwise she would not have called the police afterwards and said, "I killed my children."

She definatly has some problems going on upstairs, but she wasnt "insane" that day.

There are people that say "We'll, I was insane when i comitted the crime, but i was fine before, and im fine now, but i was insane that day". The sad part is, some times they get away with it

I disagree with those sentiments. Prison seems like a waste. Her perspective and experience with why this happens to begin with, will be very beneficial to the psychiatric staff attending her, adding to society at least some contribution. An eye for an eye or flat out exile too confinement where ever is an effective deterrent, sure, but that doesn’t help society prevent, prepare, or understand what precedes this behavior. Prison would have been the least responsible thing to choose.

She killed FIVE of her children. Insane or not, this is ridiculous. Her ass should be thrown in Jail with Big Bertha the carpetmuncher.

Sometimes there are truly people who are insane and they should be sent to a hospital instead of jail.

But this woman knew what she was doing, she isn't insane. She should be thrown in jail. On another note jail isn't much of a punishment anymore, they really need to make it more of one.

God, how do you kill all your children saving them from Hell? If she thought Satan was in her, then killing them would seem to have the effect of sending them to hell. She should've killed herself and not them, stupid ignorant people of today's society...

I agree that she should be in a mental institution. She just shouldn't be able to get out.

If she if found to be insane by more than one doctor, keep her in a mental instution for life. If she is not insane, send her to prison for life.

On another note jail isn't much of a punishment anymore, they really need to make it more of one.

I agree. These people get cable tv, porno mags, free food, free excerise equipment, meeting with other people, ect. It should be. If you murder one person you get life, no parole. You commit a rape, you get life. If you commit more than one murder you get a bullet to your head. Exuctions should be carried out withen a month of the conviction. You would work 8 hours a day as long as you are concidered physically able. You don't get porno mags, and you only get a relgion channel and the news on your TV. Food would be just what you need. Prison needs to punish criminals, not rerward them with an all expense paid trip.
