John Ferguson killed eight people. I’m not sure of the actual trial, but my heart goes out to the victims and victims families.But killing John Ferguson won’t bring justice back there is simple no justice.
To be fit for a trial and be legally competent by the Supreme Court standards, one must be able to assist in one’s own defense and comprehend the punishment. John Ferguson believes he is the Prince of God and believes he is being executed because he is the Prince of God.
He doesn’t grasp the why he is being punished, and because he has delusions and hallucinations cannot assist in his own trial.
Florida has tried to execute him but was blocked by the Supreme Court. While the Supreme Court is the law of the land, it should supersede Florida’s laws.
But, why kill a man who can’t comprehend the punishment. I’m completely against the death penalty, but what’s the sense if he doesn’t understand why he is being kill.
In my mind it’s just sick and twisted people try fulfill their justice. This shows how the law is behind on psychology and psychiatry and how people’s perceptions are still behind.
