Do you agree with the Supreme Court’s ruling that executing mentally retarded criminals is “cruel and unusual punishment”?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 21, 2002
“They shouldn’t do that. If they did, they would automatically go to heaven, because they’ve never reached the age of accountability.”
“Yeah, I do, because I don’t believe they’re at the same state of mind as the average person.”
“Yeah, but I’m not a big death penalty person anyway.”
“Yes, if they’re really mentally ill.”
