If you are the one who pulls the lever, then didn't you murder the murderer, if so do you get the death penalty... could lead to a short lived society.
I have always believed we should enact a Lord of the Flies crime and punishment... Buy an Island Fence it off and put criminals there. No threat to rest of society... Wait a minute I think that was done, just without the fences...

I have one question, should insane murderers be sentenced to death?

Let's face it...sane people don't go around killing people. What's the alternative? Institutionalize them for life? Bottom line is, every case of murder has different circumstances. It really all depends. For example, a child who kills his brother, and is not mentally well, is then treated for years, and is able to live a normal life. His punishment is living with the fact that he killed his brother, etc., but at least his parents only lost one child. Then, compare that to Charlie Manson (who is totally insane, but who everyone believes should die). Just all depends...

What is insanity, really?

There are many levels and classifications of insanity, and one solution does not fit all of the levels and classifications. Each case has to be evaluated individually, before determining punishment. Nobody ever said it was easy...

I mean really, what is insanity? Is it seeing things that aren't there, talking to people who aren't there, what?

it's living in your own world, to the degree that you ignore the world around you, or at least, twist it to fit your own reality...but of course, it's easy to assign this definition to others too, hehe....

But aren't we all living in our own world inside our heads? We believe what we want, see what we want and hear what we want. Crazyness is only a divergence from the non-existant norm. How do you know that you yourself are not crazy, that several of your friends aren't real, that your whole world isn't real, that I'm not real, that you're not real? etc... hmmm...

But when that otherworld leads to mass murder...maybe it's gone a bit too far, huh?
