Stabbed 11 times! Pushed over the edge? If this young mans mother, who gave birth to him, and probably raised him as a young child ... was so sick and uncontrollable, then why was she not in a hospital or other environment where she would be safe, and others safe from her?
A 30 year sentence, which will probably result in 15 years or less ... and a person who has the ability to stab another human being 11 times, until death ... and he will be out on the streets again by the age of 35. Can we say ... repeat

What he did was very sick, something has to be wrong with him in order for him to kill his own mother. He should be put away forever!!! I agree that 30 years isnot enough for that type of crime. especially b/c it was HIS OWN MOTHER!!!

If you have never worked with a mentally altered person you can't judge the situation here. Yes this man was surely in the wrong for what he had done and Im sure he will live the rest of his life to regret what he has done. As a person whom has worked in the field with people whom are normal then become mind dibilitated it is a very very "over the edge" situation. They stated his mother had violent outrages. As for the comment of why the mother wasnt "locked" away... Have you not seen the medical issues in this country? Institutionalizing is not free or cheap!!!

Isn't it funny how all the killers and criminals bitch bout their rights being violated and how bad they are treated? Hmmmm....no one seems to give a damn about the rights of the people they harm and kill. A better place for this freak would be at the bottom of Lake Waswasee.

Which unstable do we build for?? The caretaker that went "over the edge" or the usually sane that became diseased?? Its a catch 22 no matter what side you look at it from!!!

Random acts of violence means you are next. Your mother is next. This kid dealt with the one person causing him to suffer. This was not random. If you can't see or appreciate the difference in danger, you are the crazy one.
