Seriously, I don't care about what anyone deserves. I don't care if they're really innocent. I don't care about giving the victim's family closure. I care about how easy they are to fix, how likely they are to do it again, and whether or not the former justifies risking the latter.
On a side note to your little spurt of moral superiority there, though, people who believe in punishment could well believe that justice for the victim is better than justice for the attacker even if the attacker can't really be said to have been responsible.
If he's not insane, then what is he?
If he was sane, he had a motive.
What was his motive?
Supporter of the gold standard, pro-life, clear grudge against the left, supporter of that crazy NWO **** those Ruby Ridge people supported...
I think if we're not going to declare him "insane" then it's clear where he stood on the political scale.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

Simply because this notion was thought of before the studies were conducted doesn't change that the studies show evidence for its truth. Does it only count if it happens by accident? That's a pretty squirrelly argument.

I suppose you'd also like to tell me that there is no causal relationship or implication between IQ and education because we cannot directly observe the contributing neurology that results in raising IQ, despite consistent test results?
