I didn't know Mr. Taavel, but it does sound like he'd be appalled at your suggestion for the death penalty. I do think the man who did it should go to jail regardless because even though he is mentally ill he has a history of violent behaviour and deserves jail. But are we honestly saying that we should teach this mentally ill guy not to kill by killing? What will that say to other mentally ill people who may have violent histories? They risk not seeing it as a lesson, but as what I just said...it's ok to kill. Or anybody for that matter....I'm anti-death penalty regardless of mental capacities of the suspect.
