he's in jail is is being raped. not i dont think thats enough we should also publicly humiliate him... i mean its totally his fault he's mentally disabled, he should have told his mother to stop smoking or better, he should have told allah to make him smart...
It doesnt matter if you have the intelligence of a kindergardener. If you are a threat to others or you commit a crime against others, you should be held accountable. "He didnt know what he was doing" is no excuse. He now knows that is the wrong thing to do.
I dont know about 100 years tho..ive seen other sexual assault cases get way less than that.
we all agree that he should be punished, but again as you said. 100 years is somewhat extreme.

Nice, you managed to insult the US. Good for you. Totally irrelevant and a cheap shot and incorrect.The average IQ in the United States is usually set at 100. Groups within the US score different average IQ's, such as 115 for college grads or 85 for African-Americans.
[QUOTE=AlDaja;4924058] Another reason not to commit a crime in Texas. But seriously this guy probably could have been evaluated a bit better and determined to be a little off the norm, but whatever. A major imbalance in our justice system; steal a loaf of bread get the firing squad, murder someone(s) (OJ) and get to play golf in Florida. :beer:
Lock the kid up yes absolutely. But not in a general population prison where he is being ass raped daily and will probably not live out a year. He should be in a Psychiatric ward or a minimum security prison where he is removed as a threat from the public but not in danger himself.
And what asshat felt a mentally disabled person with the intelligence level of a six year old was competent to stand trial? Thats so incomprehensible as to sound like a criminal act of unprofessionalism in and of itself.
Well I'm sure a century in prison will make an 18 year old that can't read or write and speaks unsteadily a better person.

The reason other people get less time in prison is that the people in charge of the justice system hope, largely in error but still, that they can be re-educated. Doesn't apply in this case so *shrug*

Eh I think thats bullshit tho. If you sexually assault someone, I am not gonna trust you in 10 years after jail time and some classes saying "no means no" to not do it again. Sorry but thats just me.
