Finally.
Hopefully the trial ends in the death penalty.

Bet they still have trouble getting a jury.

This state is so slow. He should have been put down within a year of the event. I couldn't care less if he is insane, he no longer deserves to breath.

What took so long? He should have been executed painfully years ago

Why take so long? Why even waste time and money on a trial. How could someone even defend him.

And then he gets to spend millions of our tax dollars and appeal it all the way to SCOTUS.

Would have been a lot easier for all involved if he'd eaten a bullet on that day.

The only thing the defense wants to argue is that he was insane at the time.

and that he gets a fair trial

We had a public pretender come speak in one of my classes and that is basically what he says he does. " make sure you get a fair trail and nothing more"

I thought insanity would spare him the death penalty, is that correct?

I strongly believe everyone deserves a fair trial. That said.... in my fantasy court room, it would go like this.

Judge: Ok, opening statement from the Defense

Did your client shoot up and kill a bunch of people?

Defense Liar (Lawyer): Our client is a poor misunderstood boy, he needs extra special treatment and love. He didn't mean to hurt all those people.

Judge: wait a second, he willing shot everyone there, right?

Defense Liar (Lawyer): well yes, but he's insane. He needs a glass of warm milk and a hug from his moma, not the chair.

Judge: but he pulled the trigger, right?

Defense Liar (Lawyer): well, uhh, yes, but don't you know he just forgot to take his special pills that morning. As long he takes his special pills, everything's peachy.

Judge gives the Defense Liar (Lawyer) a look: ok Mr Prosecutor, your opening statement.

Prosecution Liar (Lawyer): The state has nothing further to add.

Judge: well I see the jury has already begun throwing a rope around the tree in the front, I think its safe to say they've reached a verdict.





Seriously, the fuck nut's own lawyers admit he did it. This trial should take a fucking day (even allowing for a nice long 2 hour lunch for the jury), a week for an appeals court to verify it was a fair trial, and another week at max to hang the cocksucker in public.
