,,,, Just saw the news in relation to the Guy who shot Gabby Giffords & Killed those others in Tucson, Arizona. They want him to undergo a Mental Evaluation to see if he could withstand a Trial. I mean yeah he deserves a Trial but we already know he’s guilty. all he needs is a simple hearing and sentencing. otherwise everything else is a big waste of money.
The Media has painted this guy as a Madman since that happened. Even if they did find that he has mental issues it’s no way to downplay what he did or give him a lesser sentence. Anybody else would have been put to life in prison or death with no question of their mental condition.
I personally think the man needs to be jailed for life. because IMO it’s just as equal to Death. and I don’t really agree with the death penalty.
It’s wild to me, because here in New Orleans there was a man who confessed to five murders, He got the death penalty with no mental evaluation and despite that They used Mental Retardation as a last minute defense, the jury made the decision with no evaluation and he got sentenced to Death.
Sometimes Criminal activity is premeditated or provoked but it’s not a mental condition.
