Today the Supreme Court blocked the execution of a mentally handicapped man here in TX.
How is it that it took the SCOTUS to do this? Can't we as a society see that killing someone who is mentally ill does no good for the victim, society or the criminal?
Maybe I am naive' or just too soft. But, killing someone who can't fully understand their crime is not just.
EDIT - Juries get verdict wrong in one out of eight cases. Another reason not to kill someone.
