So 10 years for 2 murders...hmmmm how can this be right? Just claim that you're crazy and you get away with it. I pray that she really does know that it was wrong and can have the constant reminder of just how sweet her babies were.

In their 2000 report on family violence, the Revs. Sam and Bunny Sewell point out that:

1. Women commit most child abuse and most elder abuse.

2. Women hit their male children more frequently and more severely than they hit their female children.

3. Women commit most child murders and 64% of their victims are male children.

4. Eighty two percent of the general population had their first experience of violence at the hands of women

Yes, put a pillow over her face and let her feel what those babies felt. It's nice to know that a child's life is only worth 5 years in prison. Our system NEEDS a lot of work! What's so wrong with an eye for an eye? Why must we foot the bill for idiots that harm our children?

she should have gotten life because thats what she took from those babies. they wont even see 10 years and that is not enough time to serve for what she did. she should have been able to call someone to come take the babies for a short time while she needed to get some sleep.

Your dam right Andrea Yates shoould have been shot for what she did to her babies. I think screaming Im Insane Im insane everytime oyu kill your kids is a complete cop out! What are tragedy! And it is a slap in the face of our society that htis MONSTER will be out after a few years. There is no excuse for murdering a child, can you imagine how they felt being suffocated by their mom, someone who is suppose to love them unconditionally? This makes me a firm beleiver in the death penalty...an eye for an eye!
Unbelievable

10 years for killing 2 innocent babies. Do you have any freaking idea how many people want to have kids that are unable to???

I hope your lenient sentence of 10 years is absolutely horrible and you are haunted by what you did everyday. They should tie your tubes immediately.

10 years for killing 2 babies. I say, lets put a pillow over her head and suffocate her. Then we won't have to pay for her funky A$$ being in prison. She'll get out after 10 years and be "completely" sane. What a disgust!

This is an outrage! 10 years??? What kind of kangroo court was she in? You wonder why we have so many people commiting crimes over and over well here you go. Its ok we will slap you on the wrist and after you get out early for being good while you are in then go back to your life. So much for the two little ones that will not get to live their life. I wonder if some of our judges need to be put in jail for some of the punishments or lack of that they hand down. What a shame!
