Mother Attempts to Burn Children

In Cleveland, OH, a woman set her house on fire and dragged her children back into the burning house when they had escaped.
The girls, ages 8 and 12, told investigators their mother was upset because the older girl had a boyfriend. The mother allegedly interrogated the girl while applying lighted incense to the child's neck, chest, rectum and inside her mouth, according to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason.

Investigators said the woman set the house on fire when she didn't get answers, and when the girls ran out, she forced them kicking and screaming back inside the burning house.

A neighbor pulled all three of them to safety
The fire occurred over a year ago but it took authorities a year to put the pieces together and file charges. The woman was diagnosed with a mental condition. Who would have thought?

You point to a problem which infests our culture: A criminal woman has a mental illness, a criminal man is a criminal.

The two are very different. Worse, legal experts are working hard to enshrine the difference into law. For example in Britain where the top female judge believes that prisons are country resorts for men; to her sending a female to prison is evil incarnate.
JW - you have a good point. Another example is the Andrea Yates case ,where it certainly appears she had mental prolbems, but many blamed her husband. I'm sure a man who had done the same thing would have been labeled a monster.
