I can see virtually any reply will spark a heated debate with you and seriously considered not saying anything. However, I'll bite this once.
YES, the husband was at fault. YES, he was a wierdo who wanted children despite the damage he was doing to her.
But SHE drowned her children. SHE was the one who systematically drowned all 5 kids, even chasing one down the hall when he realized what mom was doing. She knew what she'd done was wrong else she wouldn't have called the police afterward.
The husband should be behind bars as well. I resent that he will profit from selling his story and think every penny from such sales should go to charity.
I think she should be in a mental institution instead of prison. (but she should not be able to cop a "oh, I was looney then but I'm doing better now" plea and walk).
In Texas, the jury had two choices - find her guilty of murder and send her to prison or find her innocent and LET HER WALK! Our laws need to be changed because one who is found innocent by reason of mental defect gets a walk, not time in an institution.
They were both responsible, not just him. If the roles were reversed and it was found he had been suffering from severe depression, I do not think we would be having this conversation.
