    ok, so they sentenced him to die for killing 2 and trying to kill a 3rd.

    THEN they had him take an IQ test. With him knowing that if he failed he could avoid justice.

    Gee, do you think he tried his best to get a high score?

    huh, do ya?

    There's a simple solution to all this; don't kill anyone in Texas.

    So it does not matter what the intellectual capacity of the convicted is, guilty is guilty? Kill'em all smart or dumb.

    Philosophy that great belongs on the level as Plato and that Socrates guy.

    so if I don't want to get executed in TX. I shouldn't kill anyone in TX?

    How deeply profound. :eusa_pray:

    dumb people are just as able to be evil as the next person.

    If he actually was retarded, in other words, he had no chance to understand what he was doing, then he should have been put in a hospital of some kind.

    but there was no proof provided in the link. It was implied that he could qualify.

    but I'd have to be one of the owners of the Brooklyn bridge to think he didn't throw that IQ test to save his own hide.

    Justice was served.

    not enough information to make a judgement....did he try to elude the police ...hide the crime...etc...in nc....all that matters is if you knew right from wrong.....simple as that....
