Take Him Out, Put Her In!

The headline reads, "Mother sentenced to 20 years in jail for keeping son in cage." Upon reading the story, it seems clear that the mother in question is less a criminal then simply off her trolley. Then again, a lot of criminality can be laid at the doorstep of madness. Well, that's my view. So what can we say about a culture that either can't properly understand a crime such as this, or does have an awareness, but chooses to ignore it in sentencing.
