SCOTUS to examine insanity defense 

Maybe the Supremes'll make a good ruling that'll make it harder to convict people who are insane, because sending mentally ill people to prison instead of hospitals, or even worse executing the insane, is just wrong.

But then, I think we should only reseve the death penalty for REALLY bad people like Bin Laden, so I expect a lot of people to disagree with me. However, there is something very different between a sociopath that kills people even though they have a sound basis of reasoning and understanding reality, and executing someone that does have a grip on reality.
