Dystopian Diary: Is This a Joke?

There’s bogus insanity/”fugue state” defenses for murder, which just shouldn’t be allowed to stand, but now this too? Are you fucking kidding me? How little responsibility are people going to take for their actions, through legal wrangling?

As for the insanity stuff…I feel like that shouldn’t be a defense at all. If you’re too insane to be in control of yourself and committed murder as a result, you should be kept in an asylum (life imprisonment), even if found not guilty of criminal intent for said murder.
