    For once I agree with a ruling from Texas. What this thing did to her daughter is torturous to the point of attempted murder. People like this should NOT be allowed to have children.
    Sorry but 99 years is a crazy out of proportion punishment for this.

    Yes she should be punished, even with jail time, and have her kids removed from her. But throwing her in jail for the rest of her life? come on...... that is beyond insane.

    She beat her 2 year old kid into a coma, and she is eligible for parole in 30 years. She got what she deserved.

    Yeah, it wasn't just a matter of gluing her hands to the wall. She glued her to the wall and hit and kicked her into a coma. And then it wasn't even like the mother thought "oh, crap, what have I done?" No, it was the grandma who found the little girl like that and took her to the hospital.

    She will be eligible for parole in 30 years. That seems more than fair for this kind of depravity.

    The Yahoo's headline is blatantly misleading. The mother got 99 years for nearly beating/torturing her kid to death,not because she glued her kids hands to the wall.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The US is not Norway or some other Eurotrash country that coddles criminals.

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.
    She abused and beat a 2 year old to the point of death. Let her back into society and there's the chance she may breed again, I don't think it's worth the risk.

    Well to be fair we don't coddle poor criminals. Rob a bank and get 20 years in a hard time prison. Rob investors and pay for a good legal team and you get 4 years in a Club fed. Hell hire a dream team and you can get away with murder.

    It is as rare as Compassionate 'Conservatives' to see someone like Madoff get serious prison time, and he had to rob everyone from millionaires to Nun's pension funds to earn his stiff prison sentence.

    I think the rule of thumb is 1/3 of the sentence. So in 33 years she may be eligible to have her 35 yr old child "returned" to her.

    idk where I got the 1/3 number though.
    I may be wrong.

    I suspect the mother knew that sticking her child's hands to a wall with super glue is wrong.

    Training doesn't seem to be the issue.
