People need to understand that being insane is not just some subjective term for people you don't like. Just because someone is a racist it doesn't mean they are insane. People who are like this cannot willingly make decisions by themselves. For example, Britney Spears was declared mentally incompetent, she was not able to sign contracts herself and needed someone else with mental clarity to help her with that task.

Should the death penalty extend to the mentally ill.

Well... personally, I've always felt the death penalty is more humane than life in prison, and I'm sure life in a mental ward isn't much better.
And if someone kills for ridiculous reasons, they should never be let out. So to me, the death penalty is more humane than a meaningless life.

And insane/evil are two different things but can coexist. The girls who murdered their friend to summon slenderman for example. They're crazy to belive in slenderman, but they're also evil.
It'd be one thing if they killed her becuase they thought she was possessed by slenderman, or they thought killing her would prevent something like that.. but no.
Even taking their delusion into account, they not only killed, but with the purpose of summoning an evil monster... So if you take their delusions seriously, that means they're even worse.

I think if you can prove that someone is delusional, then judge them by their intentions. If their intentions were to do something bad, then I feel their insanity should be irrelevant.


While we are executing the mentally ill, we can execute the Jews too! (Sarcasm no offence intended)


I think we should execute anyone who kills with bad intentions without regard to their sanity.

The only people I think should be considered "not guilty" are ones who kill under the delusion what they did was right. They need mental help and should remain quaranteened

Its best that we leave life or death to necessity, not to be used unless necessary.

if they pose a clear and present danger to society, and if the crime committed is beyond justification, then yes.

I think it should be up to that 'insane' person to choose. Insane or not, a life is a life.

There are plenty of insane people in asylums who haven't even taken a life. Why should they die?

As long as the dangrous ones stay behind bars, then let them be.
