Don't you get it? ALL people who murder in cold blood are "mentally ill" or "mentally retarded". Ask any slick defense lawyer, they'll tell you. Yeah, thats the ticket! Let them poor "ill" people off the hook! Quit picking on these poor murderers!

Is Huntville considered to be in the Houston area? If so, check out the state pen. As southeasttexas said, most clients are simply "mentally ill" (according to their attorneys) and just need treatment.

Of course, I am one of those who believe the therapy most need is shock treatment via AC current. Or perhaps "in vein"...but that is just me.

Only people convicted of capitol murder get lethal injection in Texas. It usually takes about 5 to 9 years to get it done.
No one, so far, has been executed for being mentally ill.

Mentally ill or not people, I believe, should be executed! You have to be crazy if you commit a murder. Unless it is in self defense of course. But then again that wouldn't be considered murder. Lol ok Ill stop rambling on now.

Would you guys also kill a small child who murdered? Mentally ill pretty much have the brain capacity of a small child, so I guess you would. Right??

with regards to murderers.......thank God for the death penalty and Texas has an express lane.

No, you're not the only one. All sorts of interesting scenarios came to mind upon reading it. Mainly, though, the reaction was "Huh????"

There are too many situations where homicide is justifiable to kill everyone who commits murder imo. For instance, if a homeowner comes home and finds his house broken into and his children being attacked and he kills that intruder, should that person be put to death for that crime? If not, why not? It's murder. Or how about a wife who has been tormented and abused by her cruel husband for years and eventually kills her tormentor with a knife to the heart? Again, should she be put to death? If not, why not?

This is the folly behind capital punishment. Prosecutors can pick and choose whose crime is heinous enough to warrant state-sanctioned murder and whose doesn't.

Imo, people (morons), who support the death penalty are like people who watch alot of violent movies. They are acting out their base, psychotic, violent fantasies vicariously by wanting people to be murdered by the state. And unfortunately Texas is full of such types.
