    Today on CNN they were talking about the guy who went into a theater in Aurora, Colorado and killed a large number of people and wounded many more. The parents are asking that their son not be executed. They would rather he be institutionalized. I'm sure the families of the victims would rather their loved one's would still be alive.
    Mentally ill ???? Perhaps he is. I have no problem with totally crazy people getting a break. I however don't think of him as crazy. He was able to acquire the weapons and ammunition. He got protective gear to wear. He carried out the act. Therefore I think he deserves to be punished.

    12 Dead and 70 wounded

    Thoughts, opinions ? This will be in the news from time to time over the next few months.

    Tony,

    100% correct. Not Crazy.
    But if you ask Dr. Phil or any other one of these crackpots...."he had a condition". They've made entire careers and lots of money based on this nonsense..
    Oh, he's got a condition....he's screwed. Take him out back and release him to the families of his victims. That's how you solve this problem.
    White boy on meds thinks he's the Joker.....only in this country. Killing on behalf of fictitious characters.....kind of sounds like another group of people who kill on behalf of fiction (hint)
    It has to be the meds...what else can it be? This doesn't happen anywhere else in the world......Maybe he is crazy, so what? He's proven he can't play with the rest of us on the playground. Time to punch his ticket.
    This guy walked in as the Joker....Insane. We have a place for this insanity in my imaginary world.......VAPORIZED. See ya later Buddy, tell us how Bat Man and Robin are from the afterlife. I'll be waiting for your report.

    Thank Dr. Phil and all these other professionals.

    As I said many times before; our media and gunlaws are at fault. Take the case of the 12 year old with a toy gun. Due to all our "bloody" movies, games etc. kids are already "gun" happy at an early age. Some people think ; what they do on the movies etc. I can do that too. Give them some alcohol or weed and the picture is complete. Also a "bad" family upbringing will help with that; Mom and Dad go to work and leave the kid in a hot car for instance, or forget to feed it or educate it. etc etc. This is America!! You do not need Dr. Phil to figure that out.

    I find nothing wrong with being found guilty but mentally ill, what I do object to is these individuals being found not guilty by insanity or mentally ill, because that means they will be released back into society at some point. I have been in attendance at many of these types of hearings and it seemed at times that the sole purpose of the hearing was to find a reason to hold the individual not accountable for their crime, most times it was for a murder, or a serious type of an assault,I always held the thought that when found guilty but mentally ill, you go to some type of facility that can attend to their needs, when cured? then send them to big boys play pen for the reminder of their sentence.,

    But even so...he made a decision to kill people as if they were target figures....ACCOUNTABILITY. He still has to go. I'm sorry Mr. Joker that your nuts but your flight to "nothingness" is now boarding...have a great trip.
    People still need to be held accountable. If you can get up every morning, shower, get ready, have breakfast and avoid being hit by a car on you way to school....you're not crazy. Time for you to leave earth

    Weed has nothing to do with violence...it's one of God's many gifts to his servants. he loves us so much he allowed us make "CHRONIC".
    Dutch...you and PGR need to find God, but don't look at Cinna buns, he's not there, I already looked

    Since Reagan closed most mental facilities because they didn't want to pay big money to help people who don't make donations to the Repub party, they say most of the crazy people are A. Homeless or B. In jail. So let him go to jail. I don't want to sound like a jerk but I'm for a quick trial and a quick execution (not a 27 years on death row type of situation). Time to upgrade the gene pool. He's a mass murderer. No benefit to society at all.
