    Since I think anyone put in prison for life without possibility of parole, which this ought to be, should just be taken out and shot, I agree.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The article said she's not eligible for parole for 30 years. So the child will be an adult by the time she gets out. She will also most likely have gone through menopause and will be unable to have any other children, so it seems like she won't be able to do this kind of harm again.

    The thing that I found the strangest about the whole thing was this.

    Mitchell could have sentenced Escalona to anywhere from probation to life in prison.
    Maybe there should be some better defined sentencing guidelines. That seems to be a pretty large range there.

    Not sure that a course on parenting would cut down on crazy.

    I think they should glue her hands to her cell wall and every morning everyone should line up and pee on her - for 99 years.

Will she realistically seek to better herself, treatment, etc if she knows that she has no future? We've created a permanent ward of the state and added another life time member of our broken prison system. Obviously this is an easy case to jump on, but gratuitous sentencing with no real discussion over what the purpose is of imprisoning people is something that bothers me.
    I think you both bring up excellent points.

    Clearly, what this woman did was HORRIBLE. I mean absolutely despicably horrible. However, I find it really unsettling that the punishment guidelines were between probation and life imprisonment. That's simply too much power for a single person to have. I think it's possible that people involved in this case were acting emotionally. (Who wouldn't? It's a very emotional topic.)

    Okay, I get the gluing her hands to the wall part, an eye for an eye and all that, but why pee on her? She didn't pee on the little girl. Wouldn't it make more sense to glue her hands to the wall and then beat her into a coma?

    Yeah, and then pee on her till she came to.

    I still don't get where the peeing is coming from. Be honest Risky, do you just like peeing on people?

    Rule Thirty Six, I think it is. No matter how disgusting, bizarre, or whatever else you think something is, somewhere, there is someone who gets off sexually on it. It appears that we've found a mild example.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I never have much sympathy for these people, and someone abusing children often makes me question my views on capital punishment.
