For some reason killing a baby or child is usually life sentences, yet to completly RUIN that baby or childs life by any means, isnt. Technicly both have taken a life. I dont know why punishment isnt stronger.

If the DSM claims that it is not an illness or psychological ..Does not mean it is not a crime..Now they will not be able to use this to land in State Hospital or mental institution..but rather with other criminals..in prison.
That is my take.
Hopefully that will be the case, the amount of times i have seen people "get off" with crimes by pleading insanity (because of a mental illness) is ridiculous, sure there are times when people are actually "mentally ill", though it seems the "insanity" plead is usually used as a get-out-of-jail-free card.
