New Bern, NC  These kind of cases really get to me.  In 2012, Amanda Reed (formerly Amanda Stumpp) was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the drowning death of a child under her care.  While babysitting 19 month old Sadie Gates, Amanda thought it’d be a great idea to take pills and smoke pot.  Sadie managed to get out of the house while Amanda was high, and ended up drowning in a ditch.  That’s a horrible way to die, and Amanda should have been thrown in prison.

But now instead of a jail cell, she spends her time sitting in the day room of some “home”, drugged up and happy as a clam away from other women in prison who had to leave their children at home. But then there’s criminals like Jarrod Wyatt, who also did not display the actions of a rational human being as cops charged his home and found him standing naked and bloody on the couch towering over the body of his good friend.
