Post-natal choice enthusiast Andrea Yates, was able to deceive a Houston jury into letting her off the hook for the premeditated murder of three of her five children a scant five years ago.
Thanks in part to a law which barred the court from informing the jury that finding Yates guilty by reason of insanity means she will now be eligible for review to stay out of prison every couple of years after the brightest stars in Hollywood offer her free coaching sessions for her mental evaluations.
A great day for women everywhere to exercise their right to choose.
Or as the New York Times is putting it, “Yates Found Innocent By Reason of Insanity”.
Sane? Maybe not. Innocent? Definitely not.
Idea: Hey Prosecutors, since you only convicted her of three – why not try sending her back to jail for the other two she didn’t get prosecuted for?
