    As long as this woman doesn't repeat her past crimes and deviant behavior, Elizabeth's physical safety from her will obviously be fine. But just because she's served her legal time, it doesn't mean this woman is mentally healthy or has gained a conscience for what is right and what is wrong.

    Considering she was a child who was forcibly kidnapped from the safety of her home, physically abused and repeatedly violently raped...while this woman encouraged it...Elizabeth is doing amazing. But she will never fully get over it. Never.

    As far as I see it, Elizabeth has been measured with her words on the release of this woman.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Barzee was convicted of state and federal crimes, and in 2010 was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for her role in the abduction.
    She didn't serve her full sentence. She should have been denied early release.

    Although she served most of it. She went in in 2003. So, with credit for time served, she served 15 years. Her state sentence was 1-15.

    Exactly. We may not like it — 15 years seems light for her role in this mess — but I don't know of any way to keep someone beyond their sentence if they served their time without incident. The jails release nutso people all the time, don't they?

    I stand corrected.

    Some states do have special laws for sexual predators who have served the maximum sentence but are mentally unfit for human contact. I'm not entirely sure they're constitutional, but I know they exist, or did, as recently as the 1990's.
    No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. This offer VALID in 35 34 33 32 31 26 20 17 15 14 13 ALL 50 states.

    The new 13 original states to stand up for freedom: CA, CT, IA, MA, DE, MN, NH, NY, RI, VT, ME, MD, NJ (plus DC).
