Tisa is the "mother" who stood by while her live-in boyfriend tortured her son and tied him into bed at night, eventually suffocating him. She faces up to six years in prison for letting her child be murdered, but the state is making no recommendation on the length of her sentence.
I believe "the state" here means District Attorney Mike Nieskes' office, the same guys who are bungling (or putting in the fix for?) the Becker case.
Screw you, Nieskes. You are a disgrace to your office and to the people of Racine.
