    Innocent until proven guilty IN A COURT OF LAW. There IS a difference. As much as you hate it, this scum deserves the same legal treatment as any other murderer out there.

    If you're willing to treat accused differently where they're guilty beyond any and all doubt, why not just skip the entire legal procedure and lock him up/execute him on the spot?

    Exactly. I'm not the most familiar person ever with these tactics, but I'd hate to see it become a standard practice. I understand the laws are a bitch, innocent until proven guilty, you don't have to incriminate yourself etc. and those can present problems for prosecutors, but suck it up and do your ****ing job. The guy is as guilty as guilty gets, but if they use this **** on him I can't honestly believe that he got anything close to a fair trial.

    We should dump the "not guilty by reason of insanity" nonsense and adopt a "guilty but insane" policy. The only difference being where the convict spends their time, in a prison or in a very secure asylum.

    If you commit a crime, you're guilty. "Not guilty by reason of insanity" is insane.
