Elilzabeth Smart

Ken Bingham's post on Elizabeth Smart expresses outrage over the recent ruling that her abductor is not yet mentally competent to stand trial. There's one silver lining. If I ever commit some horrific crime, I'll also be able to showcase my carefully honed singing skills in court and perhaps avoid a trial as well.

I am glad you liked my article on Elizabeth Smart. Thank you for your post and the Email you sent me. I am very honored. If you ever visit sciforums.com I have a discussion thread called "Mormon Teachings" in the religion section.
I have been able to use Your LDSFAQ to answer a lot of questions people have asked me there. Keep up the Great work, and may Heavenly Father bless you and your family.

On this matter it has been reported in the news that the abductor's IQ level has raised to 71, therefore it he is legally competent to stand before trial and to be executed. I wonder how many individuals are trying to hide behind 'mental dementia' to get a reduced sentence or parole in grevious cases. Temporal insania should not be used to 'escape' punishment.
