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.
