> LOL! I wasn't thinking monetary -- I was thinking, "I wonder if this chick got a great plea deal?"
Duh, I was actually thinking about what I posted, (posted before I had coffee) and thought.. why did I say monetary? that's not what I meant. I was thinking plea too.
I was going to correct it, but then I thought.. well probably no one cares.
And then of course.. of course you had to mention it!
> Although, now that I'm thinking about it more, I could also see someone who didn't "believe in" mental illness, maybe just deciding to "stop that chick faking it" by telling a story like this.
> Mostly, though, I think either attention or probation. The one thing I don't think is "truth." That Yates woman was sick. Psychotic. And she believed that what she was doing was RIGHT -- even though she knew it was illegal.
The whole thing just horrifies me, I have no doubt she was ill, and I just keep thinking, after all she's been through, what is the point of her getting better..
I don't think I'd want too.
It's just so sickening..
> Don't get me started on the mental illness defenses in this country, nor the way certain juvenile cases are handled these days... All it'll lead to is me banging my shoes on the table and raising my voice...
I know the feeling.
But make sure they aren't your good shoes.
Pick the ones that are the ugly shade of black.
