this case really interesting (ht Southern Appeal). Basically a defendant was trying to claim mental retardation to escape the death penalty, and failed miserably. I won't even post a teaser here, it has to be read beginning to end.
UPDATE: Link fixed.
He hasn't failed yet - it's still pending.Post a Comment
Seems like a simple solution to the issue of deciding such things - stop using the death penalty.
