Killing in Aurora Colorado

James Holmes was charged with 24 counts of murder today. Rightfully so! The only issue to ponder is whether or not he's insane. Even if he proves to be detached form the reality of his actions, does it mean he deserves no punishment?

It's time such as this that make people think about the ramifications of the death penalty. Many in jail were convicted of crimes they didn't commit; the evidence was debatable and the prosecution was more persuasive that the defense. For those who were executed, I feel sorry.

This case seems indisputable from my vantage point. Nevertheless, I  wonder how a sane individual could commit such a heinous crime. In addition, I wonder how things would have ended if all the theater-goers had 9mm Glocks concealed on their persons.
Sad, sad, day.
