    Don't kill anybody in my name. It's wrong. What she did was wrong, but killing her would also be wrong.

    I believe, flawed though it is, the justice system is better equipped to get to the truth and to seek a proper remedy than I am. I really do not have ALL the relevant facts that should be looked at or the legal perspective to judge fairly. I am far too likely to jump to conclusions and to join the lynch mob.

    Who was it that said "never underestimate the stupidity of people in large groups?"

    She did it in the early 90's to go to jail once/the first time for similar, she's broken and can't be fixed. Her MO is stamped all over this one. What else is there left to do ? I'm just saying, when they find her guilty again ? It's more heinous than any one of the murders in the movie "Seven".

    What else is there left to do? How about not kill her? How about life in prison?

    She is clearly unwell - but how do you know what attempts were made to 'fix her'? I'm guessing that 7 years in prison was pretty much the only 'therapy' she received. Why would you just randomly demand that this woman be murdered? And what the fuck has a dumbass movie fiction about a psycho have to do with anything?

    Pull yourself together and stop being so damned bloodthirsty.

    Pennsylvania's death statute is at death's door itself. There's a moratorium on death sentences until they can figure out how to apply it fairly and how so many people have been wrongfully convicted. Six people on Pennsylvania's death row have been exonerated, and some released, because of new evidence. Had there not been what critics call, "endless cycles of appeals," those innocent men would be dead at the hand of the state.

    I like the idea of the death penalty, and I can truthfully say I believe some people deserve to die for their crimes. I cannot, however, support the state claiming a right to kill its own citizens in its name. No government should have power over the life and death of its people. History has shown such power has always been widely abused.

    You clearly don't understand, this woman has problems. She's not to blame for what she's done. Society is to blame for not reaching out to her and coddling her.
    Maybe we could get her a job in the neo-natal unit of a small hospital. Or at a day care center.
    She's showing great promise as a mid-wife.

    That was sarcasm.

    Fry the bitch until she's crispy!!

    Actually it is. Mental health in the United States is the most neglected area of healthcare. Few people have benefits which are adequate for serious care, and even fewer have any access to it. Had this woman had adequate healthcare, she may have been diagnosed, treated, monitored, and perhaps even institutionalized BEFORE committing this atrocity. Most of the homeless people out on the street suffer from serious mental illness which is not being treated because our country has no program to treat the indigent mentally ill. I say do society and these people a favor by getting them treatment because with proper treatment, many of them could function within society and thus be able to become productive citizens rather than simply drains on the welfare and criminal justice systems.
