PHOENIX -- New court documents say the Tucson shooting rampage suspect was put on a 24-hour suicide watch at a federal prison in Missouri after he asked a staff psychologist to kill him.

He is obviously disturbed in some way; however, I doubt so much so that he didn't know right from wrong, which is required for an insanity plea.
Even a downs kid knows right from wrong most of the time. Certainly, they know that murder is wrong - it is not a hard a concept for most people.
I hate politicians for the most part and democrats in particular but his victim didn't seem to be all that deserving of death to me. I hope she recovers.

I am surprised his lawyers tried to stop him from being medicated. The guy is mentally ill; do they really want him to sink deeper into madness, just so he can look crazy at trial and be found not mentally competent? Either way, he will be locked up: mental ward or prison. Kinda sick that they don't want their client helped.
