]. 29-year-old Kentucky man with a history of being declared incompetent to stand trial -- following allegations of sexual assault and other crimes -- is now accused in a brutal attack on an 8-year-old girl, according to reports.

Authorities in Louisville say Cane Madden, 29, is scheduled for arraignment Monday after being arrested early Saturday for allegedly whacking the child in the head with a shovel, fracturing her skull, then raping her.

Madden was accused of at least one previous sex crime, WDRB reported. In that 2017 case, according to police, Madden “bit the victim on her face above her left eye, removing a large chunk of the victim’s face.”

The charges in that case were dismissed after a judge found Madden incompetent to stand trial, the station reported. Madden has also seen other assault cases against him dismissed, according to the Courier-Journal.

This is the price we pay for saving money by eliminating state mental hospitals.
In the 1950s there were 33 mental health beds for every 100k people, by 2010 it was down to 14. Starting with the Kennedy Administration, the removing of mental hospital beds were done by State and Federal lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans, passed bipartisan bills/laws that would lower the need for beds and all were done for "humane" reasons, though the consequences were not thought through. The politicians aren't the only responsible, even the ACLU has much blame. Cases after case, the ACLU has fought against both involuntary admission to a mental institution and involuntary drug treatment, again for "humane" intentions.

The mental health crisis is a prefect example of "the way to hell is paved with good intentions".

I watched that doc on Rosewood (in your neck of the woods) a couple of weeks ago. The effects of funding cuts on the most vulnerable of us is tragic .

I would like to hear what his victims have to say about all this.

I dont understand why charges were dismissed instead of him being found guilty but insane or even not guilty by reason of insanity, niether of which would have been a get out of trouble free card(at least not entirely). There would still be that on his record, which is significant, and he would have been forced by the State to receive some measure of help.

I mean we all know it's complete and total bullshit that he wasnt caged until he dies from the first assault on and that mental illness doesnt cause anyone to rape and therefore should never be permitted as a defense in such crimes. These are objective facts and can not be argued with. We also know that no amount of therapy or counseling would have prevented him from striking again.

But it's still the principle of it. Why was he not caged or put in an insitution until he was deemed safe for society, until he was deemed cured of his mental weakness the State was so convinced he suffered from?

I dont understand why he was instead just thrown back out AT society, charges dismissed entirely. Very bizarre way of handling a nutter defense. "Oh he's crazy? Well then he can do whatever he wants and the State wont stand in his way, charges dismissed, let him go free, no strings attached!"

So fucking bizarre. Really wish a single journalist would get off their ass and dig into this one. What a shitshow.


Anyways, very interested if this was a random attack or if some asshole relative/friend needs to be punished as well for letting a known violent scumbag around their child.

The price we pay for having mercy on violent criminals, for any fucking reason, and for not caring about victims in this nation.

Vengeance should trump ALL else, the protection of society should trump ALL else anyways. Shouldnt matter if someone has no fucking clue what's going on cuz theyre mental incompetents(which def is NOT the case here), these people should be put to the fucking sword, or at least left to rot in a cage forever.

Couldn't agree more!!! Some people are 100% guilty of crime and too mentally ill to stand trial or go to jail - so the answer is to let them roam the streets? Fuck NO! Keep them and US safe by putting them in a facility with the resources to help them and contain them.

They need to just construct insane asylums either as part of a prison, or separate from them. Too loony to stand trial? We have a place for you! Stop with this 'too sick to know better' get out of jail free bs.

Was his previous victim a child also?
