If he gets the death penalty he will be given a date and time and sit there waiting as the clock ticks.
If he gets life he will sit alone in a cell for possibly 60 years. He will feel like a single goldfish in a bowl the size of a butter dish.

On a serious note about this brain damage thing I was once in a pretty bad motorcycle wreck that split my helmet like a watermelon and left me with complete amnesia for a while. To put it mildly I was severely rattled and did actually have some issues afterwords but violence was not one of them. If however I had gone out and killed people and tried to blame it on my motorcycle wreck I can only hope the would have fried my ass.
I wonder if he did steroids?
Another thing I was wondering about and never heard. Did the brothers steal the officer they killed firearms. It sounds like the older brother was committing suicide by LEO almost...
God Bless the Marine Corps.
