Blind in Texas

Pardon the title; a crass lyrical reference. But, the point is serious: Texas is blind to mental health when it comes to the justice system.

The crimes are fucking cold, and it was surely appropriate to send him away for a long time. While he might make a serious effort at going for a partial defence of diminished responsibility it seems to me, on the limited information in front of me, that such would fail. But to execute a fellow with such childlike mentality? Such shows the same callous, casual sadism it purports to deter.
