Does the sheer nature of a crime lend itself to the probability of insanity?
I was reading the lounge thread about the guy who plucked out his lone eye and ate it. Apparently he hacked his family to death, and ripped out some of their organs. Now he eats his own eyeball. There was no news in the snippet about what he did with the first eyeball he ripped out.
In any event, those few paragraphs sort of told me all I needed to know about the guy. He's crazy. Seriously. People don't hack their children and their wife to death, and rip out organs if they're not "off". They certainly don't rip their own eyeballs out. I have a tough time with plucking my own eybrows (that's a job for professionals, preferably with anesthesia, but it hasn't yet been approved in PA as covered under my medical insurance).
Isn't there a reasonable assumption that someone who commits these acts is crazy?
