Good thing that you don't make decisions.
He's in a supermax because he is a danger to himself and society.
Whether or not he is "deserving" is not the point.
The mentally ill can be a danger to society or themselves. It does not mean that they are pieces of excrement.
Attitudes like yours are what keeps the standards we have even in this day and age.
Mental illness is NOT a choice...or "bad" behavior.
It is a physical disease that affects behavior.
Being mentally ill is not a crime.

God...are we really still at this impasse???
Geez...no wonder our prisons are so full and the homeless numbers are skyrocketing.
What a shame.
