    To be fair, she was found, "to be of sound mind" to be put under trial in the first place.

    Also to even be charged, the very concept of criminal “guilt” refers to more than whether a defendant committed the crime; in almost all states, it also requires that the person be deemed of sound mind when the act was performed.

    So to then try to get out of the sentenced penalty, by claiming, not to be of sound mind, is very much closing the door after the horse has bolted.

    Bit late as you were assessed to be of sound mind, when you committed the crime, and when you went to court over it.

    Just cos you went a bit "doo lally" while in prison, does not get you out of your sentence.



    The one question I can never understand, is why any convicts, spend so many years on death Row, before sentence is carried out.

    They have had the trial, had the conviction, been given the sentence, just carry it out the next day, why make people suffer waiting years for it?

    Just get it over with.

    She seems stupid enough to have used electronic equipment to communicate with the insurrectionists. The FBI are going to be all over this. I can't think of many things more serious domestically since 9/11.

    Its to allow for years of appeals all the way to the SC if they'll hear it.

    It appears that someone who very much resembles her mother was a member of the insurrectionists and was directing people to various parts of the Capitol complex using a megaphone.

    I think metal detectors preventing her carrying a firearm into the house are the least of her worries at the moment...

    Might be worth taking a look at the quality of support and assessment for those with mental health issues who are accused and/or charged with a crime in America. I'm not sure their justice system would pass trading standards in this Country, there's very little justice involved.

    That's what you get with a capital punishment. Would be cheaper just to lock them up and throw away the key. Also avoids the risk that an innocent person is killed.

    Apologies for quoting an old post (first unread you see :p) but everything in the US is politically motivated.

    All the court cases, all the inquiries, all the impeachment proceedings, all the legal apparatus gets thrown about for purely political motivations.

    It's the one country I can look at and say they genuinely have a more toxic political landscape than the UK. It's extremely childish for the most part, incredibly bad natured, very dishonest. It disgusts me. Yet at the same time it's so transparent and obvious. They make no effort to hide it. It divides, it riles people up, it creates huge anger.

    It's so incredible toxic and the US really shines a light for the rest of the world as to how low politics can go.

    And if this is true, this is incredible, and puts to bed the whole anti-fa directing people where to go theory pretty much.

    Just think it would be so much easier to just carry out the sentence immediately.


    Probably right some of the older people who have been on death row for 20 or 30 years, OK change to life sentences, but any new sentences of the death penalty, carry them out immediately, the number who are actually innocent nowadays is minimal.

    So not true. Innocent people still end up convicted. You can't just go executing without some scrutiny and due process otherwise you quickly end up chopping off limbs for minor misdemeanours and flogging people in the public square for dressing funny
