A very bias article, but it does a good job in exposing police “stupidity.” The whole situation is another great example of government policy overriding common sense. The officers probably knew the suspect was doing nothing wrong, yet policy dictates that they investigate. Another stupid situation blown way out of proportion.

This article is very shocking and interesting.

I think this article shows that cops have to be very careful in taking action. Obviously, it is possible to violate laws, themselves.

I believe that the government here is going against the 8th amendment because this man did commit a horrible crime, but he most likely had some mental problems. I think the government instead should send him to life in prison because it would be a more worse punishment and he would have to sit with his guilt.
Reed Klunder 's comment, May 2, 2014 3:23 PM
I find this article interesting because this man killed a lot of people but he has a mental problem. It would be understandable if he was at a normal state of mind but he's not. If he has no idea what he's doing or any sense of right and wrong then he doesn't deserve that punishment. Depending on how bad his mental problem is, he should get help. Would a baby get the death penalty if it killed someone?
Brian Bertram's comment, May 3, 2014 10:01 AM
I disagree with Matt, I think those who were arested because of being a serial killer or something else bad enough to get the death penalty should not be allowed to post bail. If they know they might get the death penalty, they might make a run for it. That way they would be free again.
