Scott Panetti: Executing the Mentally Ill
5 years ago
| discussions

#ScottPanetti video was made in 2007. The 5th circuit court recently ruled Panetti eligible for execution despie his suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and having been committed to mental hospitals at least ten times in the years before he murdered his in-laws. Scott Panetti was allowed to defend himself in his capital murder case. He dressed like a cowboy and presented a pitiful defense. Nevertheless, Panetti's appeals were not granted. He now awaits execution on death row in Texas. See the video about Panetti at this YouTube link . His father and mother as well as lawyers and mental health care professionals spoke against executing Panetti. Even his ex-wife, whose parents he killed, recognize that Panetti was sick and should not be held legally responsible. Panetti and his parents are pictured below, unless NSA prevents it. I encounter much interference posting news about America's mentally ill.
