Calling all americans/interested people/bored people: NEWS
So i'm sitting at work listening to radio 2, and they're having a debate about the atkins mentally retarded case ( http://edition.cnn.com/2005/LAW/07/25/death.row.retarded.ap/index.html ) I was just curious what you guys thought of this. Basically when the guy committed the crime he was judged to be mentally retarded and therefore people decided he should be let free. Using reasons such as 'He had the mental age of a child'. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it seems to me that even at the age of 10 (based on an IQ of 59 @ age 18) people know that taking a man at gunpoint, forcing him to take money out an atm, and then taking him elsewhere and shooting him is wrong. Coming from england where we dont have the death penalty, i cant quite appreciate the issues in comparison between this and life sentances - to me either seems equally appropriate; but some people were suggesting he should be let off entirely. Sorry to lower the tone of the forum with serious news stuff, but i'm just at work and curious what you guys think (particularly as everyone on the radio show was from england)
