Florida executes mass murderer who claimed mental illness

See on Scoop.itMental Wellbeing

MIAMI – A Florida man who has spent 35 years on death row for killing eight people was executed on Monday despite a last-minute appeal by lawyers claiming he was insane.

Kevin Friery‘s insight:

In any country that wants to lay claim to the notion of ‘Civilised Society’ this is a complete disgrace.  Any psychiatrist who pretends that a 90-minute consultation with a man in his situation amounts to an ethical and sufficient basis on which to determine sanity (and hence life or death) should be struck off.
