Silly retard, murder’s for sane people.

retard_nunchucks.jpgConvicted murder Scott Louis Panetti got a reprieve from his execution when the Supreme Court decided that the lower court should have considered psychiatric evidence about his mental illness.

In 1992 Panetti was convicted for the murders of his in-laws whom he shot to death in front of his wife and daughter. Now, I’m no rocket scientist (but I do play one at home when I’m sufficiently hopped up on Mountain Dew and Sour Patch Kids), but if I kill someone in cold blood just for shits and giggles, I’m gonna bet even money that keeping me around much longer isn’t good for anyone’s safety in the long run.

The Eighth Amendment of the Constitution bars “the execution of a person who is so lacking in rational understanding that he cannot comprehend that he is being put to death because of the crime he was convicted of committing,” they said in court papers.

There’s gotta be “douchebag” clause in there somewhere, right?
