OK , brace yourself for 20 years of frustration with our justice system milking the taxpayer.

Baloney.

It sure didn't take 20 years to nail John Hinckley, and the insanity laws were significantly tightened thereafter.

This will go relatively quickly.

I think sometimes the legal system has become an entitlement program for lawyers.

I would have told him to plead not guilty...it creates a place to start...it's a process

Sounds like the mourning from the right is the chance that we might not kill the guy.

The death penalty is on the table. There is no possible way that it takes twenty years to try and convict a person, so the only possible reason for mentioning that is the desire to see him executed and to meanwhile blame society for taking so long and on top of that to not even have the moral integrity to outright say so. Like a lot of death penalty nuts, a craven coward.

he needs a speedy trial (it will take some time anyway...phyc evaluations and so on). I figure he's nuts so by our standards not guilty because of insanity I suppose...I don't think killing him will do as much good as studying him for the rest of his life

Subtle Phillip, very subtle.

I wouldn't kill him...I'm not angry with him even...the whole thing is pitiful and he will bear the shame if he regains sanity...at this point, sanity (as I understand it) would be the most cruel punishment he could experience
