    To me, that's not the issue. The issue is whether or not this person is "salvageable". The death penalty should not be approached as a punishment, but rather an ultimate protection against those who, if by some fluke escape imprisonment, would definitely harm other, innocent, members of society.

    The death penalty isn't punishment. It is termination of a perpetual and unrepentant destructive human force. It is unfortunate, but it is a fact of life.

If you're supposed to be on medication and are not, that doesn't excuse you. If you're high, that doesn't excuse you. There are consequences for ones actions. There are no excuses if you straight up murder someone.

    Anyone can claim they have mental issues. I'd say it's fair to say that most people have mental issues. But it doesn't mean that they should be let off because they have issues.
    I'm only playing armchair psychiatrist here, so I'm not an expert. What I can decipher, though, is that it seems to be a random act. It's not like this cold-blooded murderer has something against the infants and just had to kill them. I guess it is possible that he's as cold-blooded and evil as they come, but it seems to me that there is something seriously wrong upstairs.

    BTW, I do know some people who are totally different without their medications. I was almost attacked once by some guy who was convinced I was Mick Jagger. Even if I was a guy, I don't come close to looking like him, LOL. I guess what I'm trying to say is that those with certain mental disorders cannot think clearly. At least not without a proper diagnosis and medication. Drinking and drugs are a choice.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Oh, well I suppose that makes it okay then. He didn't have a motive so it's not as serious! Don't punish the guy because he's not of sound mind seeing as he doesn't have a history, and it seems he doesn't have a motive. A person who has no motive is more dangerous to me compared to a person who does have a motive. I'm not suggesting he be given the death penalty (because I do not agree with it), but I am suggesting his sentencing not be taken lightly or be reduced because he has "mental issues". It is so easy to claim mental insanity. It is an easy way out without having to live up to the appropriate consequences for your actions.

    I'm sorry, but I don't see why keeping people like this as members of our society is anything but detrimental.

    Even if the person can be "Salvaged" like Jallman said... then what? Is someone who cut up a couple babies and medical staff going to be let back out into the public?

    Perhaps I don't understand exactly what CAN be done about this.

    Even if they are able to "Fix" the person, what happens when they have flashbacks not so different to our Vietnam veterans?

    ****ing life!

    It doesn't matter if the person is "mentally ill". A crime has still been committed and there are still victims whose loved ones demand justice. As another poster pointed out normal people(with exception to military and self defense) do not kill other people.

    It seems to be a problem more than ever. By killing this man (or as you described, "putting him down") it will not accomplish one thing, IMO.
    Actually it will accomplish a couple of things. The first thing it will accomplish is justice for the victim's loved ones. The second thing it will ensure is that this individual will never be able to harm anyone again and that includes prison guards and other prison staff and that includes other inmates as well. The third thing it accomplishes is that no matter what liberal rat judge gets appointed to the bench or how crafty the prisoner is there will be absolutely no worry of him escaping or getting out of prison. So it is a load of bull **** when you and other scumbag sympathizers say executing that scumbag will accomplish nothing.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That is really sick
    I propose a 5 yr moratorium on Batman movies, nay - ALL movies - until we can study the effects of it on our youth. OBVIOUSLY movies are a significant contributing factor to the violence of the world. How many more people have to die before we do something about it?!!

    the difference between a fetus and a baby is a millisecond. it doesn't take much of an imagination to make the leap.
