How can a person commit a serious crime and be found not guilty This question can be answered with one word insanity If you were to look up the word insanity in the Webster dictionary it would state crazy not legally responsible for ones actions In some court cases today defendants are pleading not guilty do to insanity The court is excepting this because as the definition says they where not responsible for their actions Because of this one word and its meaning killers rapists and other criminals are not getting sentenced to jail time but are being sent to mental hospitals Many people may feel that there is nothing wrong with letting criminals off as long as they seek mental help I on the other hand feel that pleading not guilty do to insanity should not be allowed as a defense under any surcomestances I feel this way because a person can be realesed from the mental institute once they have shown that they are well I feel that a person who commited a serious crime should never be allowed freedom again They commited a crime once they should not be allowed another chance to commit another crime After a person is found not guilty by reasons of insanity they are confined for treatment in mental hospitals for severly mentally ill persons who have commited crimes This may seem fine because the crimminal will be off the streets but after a period of time the person may request a hearing about their mental health This hearing will determine if he or she is no longer in danger to self or others and is therefore eligible to be relased The insanity This means a murder a rapist or any crimminal could be released out into the world Even though they say that these people are mentally stable who knows for sure I feel that the court is jeperdizing our lives every time
