Just cause he killed a dozen or so most seem to think the guy is mentally ill.
Personally, I hate it that people can use the insanity plea in murder trials. I feel if you commit murder who are mentally ill.
For me...i really don't care if they are sane or not.. mentally ill or not... the punishment should fit the crime.
This guy.... im up for the death penalty
I'll wait until we have considerably more information.
That is my point, if one commits murder they are insane in my book.
Probably the best thing to do.
Well, it's either that, or he's evil. Odds are usually on mentally ill, although both are certainly possible.
You need more information to decide whether or not someone who killed 12 people is mentally ill?
Why? Murder isn't automatically insane. If I decide to kill my husband because I want to cash in on his life insurance policy, am I insane, or am I just evil? Seems to me that it's a completely sane, logical choice to make, if one is starting from the amoral position that selfish personal desires take more precedent than other people's lives.
IMO, he isn't mentally ill, because I don't believe that someone could so calmly kill those people and not be of sound mind. It sounds, so far, that he planned this.
But its only very early days, so lets see. Whatever the case, he is never getting out of prison.
