“Dark Knight Rises” Killer Gets No Deal on Death Penalty

April 1st, 2013 - 10:33 am

Good:

Prosecutors on Monday said they will seek the death penalty against the man accused in last year’s movie theater attack that killed 12, wounded 70 and spurred new gun control laws in Colorado.

The much-anticipated disclosure came in a court hearing held four days after prosecutors publicly rejected an offer by James Holmes’ attorneys that the former neuroscience graduate student would plead guilty to avoid execution.

I have serious qualms with the death penalty, but not in this case.

I'm surprised Colorado still has the "not guilty by reason of insanity" standard. Arizona has the modern "guilty but mentally ill" standard which means the Giffords shooter was going to be locked up for life no matter what, just that it took the death penalty off the table.
