let's hope that Bono doesn't do a charity tribute version of Norwegian Wood

Oxbridge, you summed Sickipedia up - quickest and sickest. The problem with that kind of caper is that it's never funny because decent mirth requires a bit of thought.
The difficulty with declaring him insane rather than have a proper trial is it blurs the boundary between insane (barking at the moon) and evil psychopath (consciously acting in an evil way).
If you start to define insanity as 'committing an evil act' and avoid trial, then a criminal justice system unravels as once 'someone' says you did it, without trial, then you are therefore insane, banged up, and will never get a trial.
However, whilst all that is very purist and moral, I am a pragmatist...so skip all the human rights stuff and fast-track him to lonely agony and torment, much exposed to cold concrete and other peoples faeces.
One issue with declaring him insane is that he doesn't appear to be insane to mosy/many. He has come to (the wrong) different conclusions to a set of points/questions/socail stimuli than the great majority of people.
I do not believe he should be tried because of his beliefs, which are wrong, stupid, incoherent and racist.
I believe he should be tried because he killed dozens of innocent people, and sought to kill many more.
I am not sure that we need to develop in depth any theories as to why he committed these acts or give any more airtime from the man and media over the 'why' of the whole thing *at this time*...
After he has been found guilty, thrown into some jail for the rest of his life and left there, then in might be appropriate for people to make some sense of this. Current attention seems far too sensationalist and giving this nasty little person some sort of fucked up reward.
He is not insane, he deserves a fair trial and that trial needs to be seen as fair - especially to other far right fucktards who are considering moving that bit much further to the far right... that sort of proves a point to anyone being a fucking dick that even though their being a dick, and everyone knows it, that we're not going to be dicks back at them.
Personally I'd like it if he tried to kill himself and then the police cut him down just in time for the end of his trial. Then he goes to jail a broken, wimpering wreak and contracts cat-aids somehow.
that sort of proves a point to anyone being a fucking dick that even though their being a dick, and everyone knows it, that we're not going to be dicks back at them.
That's brilliant. Sincerely.
He is insane. Despite it being a bit worrying to suggest that what he did is something a calm, rational person might do with clear, sympathetic motives, that was logically buildings towards a criminal end.... no, that's it I'm afraid, you can't suggest that.
And this is why you need the death penalty. Prison should be about recuperation and recovery. But you can't recover from killing nigh 80 children. He's done. Forever. So kill him. If that precluded the possibility that he might one day express sincere remorse, I really wouldn't give a shit.
