    That was not my point... it was that a mentally disturbed person would not recognize a deterrent... because... they are mentally ill.

    This was your "point' such as it is...

    What does that have to do with this case? Fields is functional enough that he certainly understands what a life sentence entails.

    If not, he would not be petitioning the judge for a reduced sentence.

    It doesn't have anything to do with the case... it has everything to do with mental capacity instead.

    Nope. I know each of the groups involved it was always a white nationalist rally on their side.

    There are plenty of serial murderers serving life sentences in prison. Your "mental capacity" hangup is moot.

    Fields plead guilty to first degree murder. The judge asked Fields if he fully understood the first murder charge, and wished to change his plea.

    Fields told the judge that yes he understood the charge, and he did not wish to change his guilty plea.
