    Yeah! That's going to happen.

    Why not just admit that you want gun ownership made illegal, for everyone?

    This is now a death-penalty case, and the judge has removed himself: "Within minutes of it becoming official [prosecutors declaring that for James Holmes "Justice is death"], the trial was pushed back from August to next February and Judge William B. Sylvester removed himself from the case, saying that now that the charges carry the death penalty they will take years to resolve and he does not have the time to devote to such a drawn-out matter."

    So he was OK with killing other innocent folks, but he does not want to die himself!

    What a crock of irony.
    I admittedly don't know a lot about your legal system/penalties, but from what I've seen and heard about this man, the court should not accept any guilty plea and he should be tried and found not guilty due to mental illness and committed to an mental institution for the rest of his life, not a prison. A prison is not the place for such an ill person.

    He needs to go to the gas chamber. He sane enough to know that he doesn't want to get the death penalty. He's too sane to go to the funny farm and have a cakewalk for the rest of his life. Who knows, he might even get weekends off like John Hinkley.

    You can't possibly believe this man is running his own defense. His court appointed attorneys are honor bound to seek what they believe is the most beneficial and vigorous defense they can muster. I believe in a society that doesn't murder or inhumanely punishes the mentally ill. We simply disagree.

    No, he's not, but he has to sign off on any plea bargain that his lawyers offer to the court.

    We agree on that. What we disagree on, is whether, or not this clown is mental ill.

    Fair enough - even some who are mentally ill are capable of signing on the dotted line when instructed to do so.

    Until trial, we'll never know what the opinions of various mental health professionals are as it relates to his mental capacity. Considering the psychiatrist who was seeing him before this incident was so concerned about his mental health that she warned the university and considering his affectation since, I think there's a strong possibility this man is severely mentally ill.

    In some cases, but this guy isn't as ready to die as some folks have made out, which means that he's not all that mentally ****ed up.
