Just Sane Enough

Defense attorneys are trying to convince a jury that Yates was insane when she killed the children.

Prosecutors say Yates, although mentally ill, knew right from wrong.

When is someone just sane enough to know right from wrong but just insane enough to kill 5 children? It’s a retorical question, and the retorical answer is never. I would be willing to bet that the vast majority of people living today know that killing another human being is (morally, legally, mentally…) wrong.
