Re: Mother who doused daughter in acid sent to secure unit - October 30th 2010, 11:05 AM

I don't know how anyone can be blaming the mother for this? She is extremely mentally ill; while this is very tragic, it's not exactly her fault. That's why insanity is a legal defence.

What I don't understand is how her mother (the grandmother) or other family members didn't do anything before this point. She had caught her daughter with knives more than once before and didn't think that maybe getting help would be a good idea? If anyone is to blame, this woman's family should be. You can't not notice that someone is that mentally unwell.

PM me!
