Yates to Leave Prison for Mental Hospital - Yahoo! News

Yates to Leave Prison for Mental Hospital

RUSK, Texas - Andrea Yates, the Houston mother who drowned her five children in the family's bathtub, will soon move from an East Texas prison to a state mental hospital as she awaits a new capital murder trial.

It's nice to know that if you murder your children, you can be comforted at a mental hospital. Nothing like drowning a bunch of little kids- and not getting put to death by the state.
I watch Law and Order daily, but I can tell you this halfcocked excuse to give this woman a new trial has little to do with the show. They've killed enough TV kids at the hands of family members that almost any show could easliy be said to resemble the case. Shame on the state for letting her live longer than the children she killed.

Do you really believe that nobody could be literally insane enough to do something awful?

In this case you are wrong. Andrea Yates was in severe need of mental treatment and her medicine, and was not receiving those. She was extremely disturbed. She deserves the mental hospital and in my opinion is not a cruel murderer like so many others.

This woman should be sterilized and spend the rest of her life behind the prison gate.
She murdered her own children, the very ones that turned to her for love and protection, if that is not cruel- then I can't imagine what is.
