mother who was deemed insane after drowning her three-year-old daughter in the bathtub has been allowed to walk free from jail just three years later - because doctors say she regained her sanity.

Jennifer Bigham, from Modesto, California, admitted killing the toddler in 2010 and was found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity.
After doctors ruled she is now sane, Bigham has been allowed to walk free and was released from jail on Tuesday.

Any parent who kills there child should be put to death. I'm not without feeling and I don't believe in shariah law per say but in my mind, if you could take the life of your own child, what potential harm could you possibly do to people you don't know if your "mind isn't right".

She most likely played the system. They released her because she accepted the fact that she did it and put on some pity remorseful show just to get out But something says, nothing is going to stop her if she happens to get pregnant and has another child. Surely this woman shouldn't breed and hopefully they put stipulations about future children. Like, getting her tubes tied for one.

Having the knowledge of what she's done, how could she regain her sanity?

Wouldn't she have slipped back once she had realised

Maybe the worst punishment of all is that she now has to live with this for the rest of her life.Were i in charge,she would not have been released before having a mandatory sterilisation.Safer for her to not conceive ever again-im not saying this out of hateful spite either,but after such a catastrophic breakdown,to drown her own child,i dont think its wise to allow her to be a mother again-ever.

It not like it was accidental or anything, this bird should be behind bar for at least 20 years regardless of her magical recovery.

i thought that if you were 'cured' you had to stand trial, whats the story here?

ETA I see she did go to trial, and found not guilty, okay..
Now, while this is in appeals, whats to stop her from skipping out of the country to somewhere there is no extradition, if the appeals are upheld?

Even if your sentiment is in the right place, your reasoning is not. The simple fact is, even if this person committing the murder while not in the right state of mind, all she has proven is that when she is not in the right state of mind she becomes a murderer. Thousands, if not a few million people have moments of insanity where they do not kill someone. Sometimes stress causes something to break, sometimes they become slightly violent, but the vast majority do not become killers.

People who plead temporary insanity for murder should get help, but afterwards they need to be segregated from the community as they have proven themselves to be a unacceptable menace to the community.

--
As a side note, along side claims of being victims of abuse, insanity pleas seem to be societies "get women out of jail" cards. As America like most Western nations is a Social Matriarchy(meaning at a social level America is a Matriarchy), women are often immune to the law or the full effect of the law in much the same way free citizens in ancient Sumeria had to answer to lesser charges for killing people beneath their station in society.
