I was browsing my local news website and came across this story. I will start by saying that I am all for holding people accountable for their actions, but this one really took me by surprise. I don't know how this man was ever considered mentally stable. Although, it is Texas. What is your opinion?

That is disgusting and I don't know how sane he was when he began trial but I definitely don't think he should've been deemed capable. I think that he should've been placed in a mental institution for the remainder of his days. I think that it is horrid what he did to that family but how effective is the death penalty, or prison for that matter, if the inmate just doesn't get it.

I don't think there is enough brain bleach to erase this from my mind. That being said, I wonder where the line of ethics is drawn in this sand. On one hand, I feel he is capable and should pay with his life for the crimes he committed. On the other, I can't comprehend a sane capable person eating their eye. Just can't. And in this particular case, I feel that even if he is insane that he should be put to death. He is obviously still a danger to himself, I can only conclude that he is a danger to society. Besides, the ruthlessness of the crime he committed wouldn't make him eligible for parole. So we are warehousing him. It's an interesting case to say the least.
