Temporary insanity does allow you a get out of jail free card. In 2006 a new trail found her not guilty, of which I still cannot wrap my head around. I agree she was in deep psychological trouble however that does not dismiss culpability. If having depression and psychological problems was the hallmark for not being responsible for ones actions our prisons would be empty.
The threshold we have for mental stability and knowing what is right from wrong truly could be tested in many, if not the majority of serious drug, rape, pedafile, and all addictions that you cannot hold them as a serious standard. Most drug crimes (burglaries and murders) are driven by an addiction that must be fed and not met causes huge psychological and physiological problem. You cannot let sympathy for white suburban women work the law in there favor.

Oooof the word CUNT really gets to my bones. *shivers*

My soul will be forever torn.

Gee and if she doesn’t like your amazing blog she could. ..unfollow. You are AMAZING you have a brilliant artistic eye. Your passion and devotion to animal welfare and well being is amazing. You will go far.
Remember this, the majority of people who sling filth like this are just trying to get their own filth off themselves. I’ve been around (and around) for a while so I know. :)
Your star has a long bright way to go. Some just just can’t stand it….oh did I mention I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!!

The US figure skating team of 1961 contained the golden girls and boys of their generation. That year’s National Championships were the first to be screened nationwide on CBS’s Sunday Sports Spectacular. Before the media exposure, the athletes were little known outside their sport, but by the end of the broadcast many were household names. Their grace and athleticism impressed a large TV audience and the sport’s profile was high. With success in their sights, the team, along with a large entourage of coaches and family, headed to the World Championships in Prague.

Watching them as they posed for photographs on the steps of Sabena Flight 548 at New York’s Idlewild Airport, nobody could have dreamed that it was to be the last their admiring public would see of them. The plan was to fly to Brussels and then catch a connecting flight to Prague. On the approach into the Belgian capital the pilot overshot the runway and angled around to make a second attempt. Something had gone badly wrong with the flight controls and the plane came down in a nearby field, killing all on board as well as a farmer tending his cabbage field.

Thank you for the remembrance.

" "Sad" isnt the word Id use to describe a 46year old man throwing his life away to drugs. "Senseless" is more like it. "Stupid"." Its his reaction about the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman

dichotomization answered:

Wow, that’s quite disrespectful. Addiction is a disease, and is obviously something he hasn’t experienced, first hand or otherwise.

Apparently a few drug dealers are cutting heroine with a stronger drug. This drug is stronger than morphine and the idea is to bring in more business. It’s killed hundreds, however the high is so good that everyone wants to try it. When the dealer tells the buyer it’s very strong and to go easy until they know what they can handle, they don’t listen and die. Authorities expect thousands of deaths before users realize how potent the new mix is.

i realise this is an extremely idiotic question, but: why are most serial killers american?

dichotomization answered:

Well for one America generally is a big place. Guns are legal. And there is a blatant disregard for mental health in the states.

theladybard:

Hey no, serial killers are typically neuro-typical which means they’re a product of the culture. Don’t pin it on the mentally ill.

(but yes, mental health services are lacking.)

Hey no, but I didn’t pin it on the mentally ill but when people have mental health issues (ANY issues, even homicidal thoughts) over in the UK and elsewhere you can get psychological help for free. And also, there would be significantly less murders if the mentally ill were given the help they so desperately needed - Aileen Wuornos, David Berkowitz, Richard Chase, Harrison Graham, Herbert Mullin, Andrew Goldstein, Mark Chapman, Karla Faye Tucker. Shall I go on? Not all killers are products of their environment and not all are mentally ill. It’s a combination of both and you cannot say that the sheer disregard of mental health has nothing to do with that.

That isn’t blaming the mentally ill. It’s just pointing out the undeniable fact that the disregard for the mentally ill in America affects the sheer abundance of murder.

You do hear of mothers begging for help with a child that they know need psychological help but insurance does not cover the service. They go through years of trying to get help and the child escalating crime and scary behavior. Eventually the child is arrested or ends up in a gang. One time a mother wanted to turn he child over to child services because they would get him psychological help. They refused saying her home showed no signs of abuse. She refused to beat the boy to get him help. He later did beat her.

Personally as a patient of asylums in America on and off throughout my life, they're still corrupt and disgusting. Great measures are made to cover up patient rapes, not being medicated, and not being treated with therapy. It's a sick thing and I'm so sad that people so sick are being mistreated and not being rehabilitated :( I was in a very awful one and wasn't allowed out and my father literally had to start a lawsuit to get me released. Doctors would tell me to keep this on the down low.

dichotomization answered:

Why don’t you go to police with this information?! I know that some asylums definitely are still corrupt and still do mistreat patients, but definitely not on the scale of how they used to. Pretty much ALL asylums were corrupt years ago. That’s very sad to hear, but you definitely should inform the police, because if you haven’t, and don’t plan on it, then countless other innocent people in this asylum are being mistreated without anybody knowing of it.

It would depend on if this person was in the States, Ireland or other countries. I know in the US in adult asylums over medicating is the norm. They often tie patients to beds and leave them in their filth. This standard of care is also the same in nursing homes for the elderly, if an elderly person is not visited the are not cared for including assistance with eating. The facility will only clean the patient on the day the family normally visits and make excuses if the patient complains or if they com on a different day. This is all regulated by the health department and state licensing dept. They are overwhelmed and government agencies that are overworked and poorly staffed.
Getting the media involved would likely net you the biggest result at least short term. It’s all short term. Once regulatory eyes turn their eyes away the corporate world starts cutting cost, cutting employees and stop employee background checks

Jesse Pomeroy, born on November 29, 1959, in Charlestown, Massachusetts, was referred to as the youngest person convicted of murder, in the first degree, in the history of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Pomeroy started his cruel acts against other children when he was 11. He had taken and trapped seven children in a hidden spot where he would strip, tie and torture them, by using a knife or by poking pins into their flesh. He was caught and sent to a reform school, where he was supposed to stay until he was 21, but was released after a year and a half for good behavior. After three years, he had changed from bad to worse. He kidnapped and killed a 10 year old girl, named Katie Curran, and was also accused of the murder of a four year old boy, whose mutilated body was found in Dorchester Bay. Although there is a lack of evidence that can conclusively link Pomeroy to the little boy’s death, he was convicted for the death of Katie when the police found her body in the basement of Pomeroy’s mother’s dress shop, where it was carelessly left in an ash heap. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, which he served in solitary confinement; he died of natural causes at the age of 72.


If he was born in 1959 he hasn’t mad it to the age of 72. The math doesn’t work. You might check your source.
