    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    we punish people for choosing to commit crimes, that they understood were crimes and understood were wrong.

    if he didn't know it was a crime and didn't know it was wrong, he needs mental help...not the gas chamber.
    One might argue if he is truly insane, then executing him is even more sound then someone who has the ability to rationally think.

    I feel pretty confident that we can really do that to a certain extent. Ultimately, people like this don't just "snap." There are signs that people see, but don't report for a variety of reasons. The more psychiatrists get a handle on those signs and get the public educated, the safer we'll be. In any case, I'm not the kind of person who just says, "oh we can't do that" just because nobody's found a way to do it. I'd rather say that after we've actually not been able to do after putting in a solid effort.

    Why do the circumstances warrant death?

That seems like a fitting punishment to me.
    Not if they followed the Example of Texas. Costs us a lot less because they don't hang around for decades, I think 8 years is about the average right now. It would cost a lot less if the allowed the use of normal lawyers, instead of requiring special authorized ones. Of course, a probable cause warrant for chemical interrogation could reduce it even more. We should consider that as a society, I think.

    My, My MaggieD, you really do hate him if you want to torture him with life in prison. I guess someone could feel sorry for him and send him jars of vasaline and breath mints every now and then.

    I figured if he doesn't get death by lethal injection from the state he will get it from some of the other prisoners but it won't be nearly as quick or painless-AIDS takes a while to kill

    That's all fine and good until it's someone you love who gets killed by a murderer. Can I say that if someone I loved were murdered, that I would seek revenge? No- can't say that I would, but if we're talking justice, then taking a murderer's life, who has killed innocent people, then justice is served. Turning the other cheek promotes bad behavior.

    This guy does not have a death wish. Otherwise he would have fought it out with the police and gone down in gunfire. The only option he has left to live is to get the insanity ruling. In order to get that ruling you need to well, act insane.
