    Ok, so what happens to her IF she gets the treatment? They just said if you take your medication, you can be ok.

    So when she is a bit more sane, what happens? She deserves to be punished.

    I completely agree, and who's to say if we release these people back into society that they are not going to stop taking their medicine?? Thats a choice they make every day.....

    This is the problem with your judiciary system at the moment. The jury only had the choice between sane and guilty or insane and innocent. They didn't have the option to say she was insane and guilty. IMO she should be put in a secure facility where she can get the help she needs. That way she is incarcerated AND she gets the necessary treatment. At the moment the laws are just too clear-cut - they need to be amended.

    Your judiciary system is set so that people are only incarcerated if the prosecution can prove beyond reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty. That way, as few people as possible are incarcerated for crimes they are innocent of. Compare this to the Japanese system, where ~90% of people arrested for a crime are convicted for that crime. They may incarcerate all of the guilty people but they imprison a lot of innocent people too. To enjoy the benefits of a free country, you must also suffer the flaws.

    I agree with you on that....they should have a guilty and insane plea!

    what i said earlier about her getting psychiatric help was instead of her serving her sentence in a prison serve it in a psychiatric ward so she can get help that she needs, no reason to put her in prison, her get out on good behavior and then just keep cycling through our jail systems
