BBC News - Lee Rigby trial: Adebolajo says victim was 'first soldier spotted'
"We exited the vehicle and I am not sure how I struck the first blow. The most humane way to kill any creature is to cut the jugular, this is what I believe, this is how we kill our animals in Islam.
"He may be my enemy but he is a man... so I struck at the neck and attempted to remove his head."
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Psychiatrist: The man is not insane.
You: The man is not insane.
Psychiatrist: Because I have found that the man is not insane, he should stand trial for murder, not be institutionalised (that's what he means by deciding the man is not insane).
You: The man should not be sent to an institution because he is not insane and should be punished for murder.
Can you please explain to me exactly how what you think, disagrees with what the doctor thinks? You both think he is sane and should stand trial for murder. One simply cannot declare the murderer guilty and enact punishment when the murderer stated that he is innocent. While the murderer believes that he IS innocent because he did not target a civilian, he targeted a soldier and most likely considers himself to be a soldier, at war with the British military, that does not mean that anyone responding to your post also believes the same thing.There must be a trial, even if that trial is a formality because the video evidence, the murderer's own words and witnesses will be enough to convict him of murder.
You are angry at a murder commited in daylight in front of witnesses and you want justice. We all do. It's just that most of us understand the necessity of due process. Not one post that I have read in this thread is defending the murderer or believes the murderer is insane, ergo, should not be punished. Unlike you, who has somehow misinterpreted not only the doctor but every poster here, we are just waiting patiently for justice to be carried out. It has also been pointed out to you that the murder did not occur in the US, therefore, US laws and capital punishment have nothing to do with this case.
Do you understand now?
This is why the discipline we call psychology is a farce.. It's why two independent psychologists with access to the same data can come up with completely opposite interpretations. The fact we allow them to testify in court still to this day boggles my mind.
