    That's deplorable. The woman should never see the light of day.

    I am so f*cking disgusted right now. In Texas of all places, what is this country coming to when even THEY can't fry the deserving?

    :angry1: :angry1: :angry1:

    That really is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. I really hope that her dear old hubby plans on giving her the same treatment. Hell, I'd like to do it. Stories like that make me lose all faith (any little that I had left) in our judicial system. And in Texas no less. That really makes no sense to me at all.

    Looks like she's gained some weight...

    But joking aside, she needs to be committed for life or waste away in prison... There's no acceptable reason for her to ever walk the streets as a free woman again. :mad: :mad:

    Or slips, falls, and drowns in their own tub at home. That would be fitting.

    Ya know, initially I would have disagreed with you on this, thinking that perhaps they has reservations about sending her to prison for life if they knew that she was going to get help with her mental illness. But then I read this...

    "The jury, split evenly between men and women, deliberated for about 13 hours over three days. The jurors had not been told that Yates would be committed to a mental institution if found not guilty."

    So they found her NOT GUILTY, which means that they expected her to be released back onto the world with little or no consequences for her actions and no treatment plan for her 'illness'.

    I personally don't know if she was dealing with depression or not. I know what depression can do, I have dealt with it personally and it was really really tough. I am not whining about it, or making excuses or anything, just stating that IF and I mean IF she really was dealing with depression or voices or mental illness then she needed to be placed in treatment, and if treatment was not an option on the table... the prison for her protection adn the protection of others..

    Just my $.02 worth

    You have to realize it isn't the "system" that failed, it is our society. Routinely cases that should be clear cut end up with moronic results from the jury. As much as a prosecutor tries to find 12 people with common sense, they routinely have a smaller and smaller pool from which to choose from. This is a byproduct of the dumbing down of society with liberal ideologies being spewed from most media outlets, the fantasy they pass off as TV shows, foolish verdicts as precedents, and apathy from judicial participants. Like some comedian once said, do you want to be judged by a group of twelve people too stupid to get out of jury duty? That is the level of sophistication now expected of those that end up sitting in that box.

    Drown the c**t five times!!!!!!!!!

    I do not use that word lightly either. The kicker is I read today that the former husband forgave his ex-wife and regularly corresponds with her in prison. He's remarried and I think he should be castrated before he can breed again.

    Agreed. Replace judicial system with society and repeat my statement.

    How does the lawyer that represented her sleep at night? What would have happened say 50 years ago if something like this happened? Would it have happened at all? Or would you just not have heard about it and not made such a big deal?
