In America, you can push children in front of trains.
You won’t be punished.
A homeless Oregon woman seen in harrowing video shoving a 3-year-old girl face first onto train tracks has been found guilty except for insanity – and sentenced to 10 years in a psychiatric facility.
Brianna Lace Workman, 33, pushed the girl, Zoe Rodriguez, off a MAX platform and onto the tracks at Portland’s Gateway Transit Center on Dec. 28, 2022.

“The child landed face-first onto the metal rail and rocks before being quickly rescued,” Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt said at the time.
Workman was convicted Wednesday of assault, attempted assault, recklessly endangering another person, disorderly conduct and interfering with public transportation, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office District Attorney’s office said.
She will be committed to the state’s psychiatric hospital for a maximum of 10 years, but is eligible for conditional release or discharge during that time if found to no longer present a danger to others.
People that get these sentences to psychiatric facilities are always released early.
The whole concept of “insanity plea” was always a scam. It shouldn’t even matter if someone is insane. What does that have to do with anything?
Mixing psychiatry with criminology was always a recipe for disaster, and a sign of a soft, deteriorating civilization.
