    I think the mentality is pretty obvious. Sociopathic, perpetual victim mentality, most likely anger, self esteeme, and control issues. Just look at the nature of the crime. If he was bitter about the relationship ending, he would have gone after the mother. There are other neumerous motivations that would have led to various out comes.

    But targeting the child shows his self centered world view. The child was what was holding him back, and he refused to be told what to do. Trust me the guy isnt complicated, he is just a selfish ass.

    Castration doesnt equal death.

    We can always question him after hes been de-balled.

    This is semi OT, but amusing:

    I heard about this rural county jail which, in the rule booklet they give you, has this rule, and others like it: "No more than one person to a bed, unless it's consentual."

    Its a little exaggerated, but still im positive it would probably still be better than what he had.

    Err. I'm aware. My point was that it's such a reactionary response that doesn't give a person time to consider various aspects of the crime. Granted, some people don't find that valuable, but I do.

    The "off with his head" (heh! ) response just sort of gets old to me.

    But we can still castrate him though right? Im not seeing any problems here, you still get to talk to him. It will just be at a higher pitch is all.

    His life holds almost no value for society. Why let your personal distaste for a particular reaction get in the way of the most practical course of action?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Not surprisingly, it's not a good idea to let society determine the value of life, regardless of what a person has done.

    I'm a big fan of defining the value of human life around 10 million or so, though, so I see no reason why he shouldn't be 'slaved' until he has paid off that debt. But the same flip issue comes up - putting a price on life has unfortunately consequences.

    Arbitrary numbers to work better? And who gets to decide what the arbitrary number is?

    I prefer cost benefit analysis. This particular individual is high risk. Unless he's some sort of miracle healer, he's not worth keeping around.

    He just sounds psychopathic.
