OSJCL Amici: Views from the Field

The law worked in Schlosser case; that's the problem

A woman who, four years ago, sawed off her infant daughter's arms with a butcher knife and sat on the sofa singing hymns while the baby bled to death was released from Rusk State Hospital to continue her treatment as an outpatient. Ms. Schlosser, brainwashed by a cultlike church, isolated in an authoritarian marriage, her reason obliterated by disease, was insane. And against all of the wishes of the people of the State, the judge did what the law requires, release her to enjoy her right to rejoin society.
