Defective unit.

So, what are we going to do about this?
A 20-year-old man allegedly shot and decapitated his grandparents inside an Oklahoma City home that doubled as a day care.
Are we going to rehabilitate him? Is some parole board going to have to listen to his future self say "Okay, yeah, grandma and grandpa got all shot and beheaded, but I was only twenty at the time, and we all do reckless and impulsive things when we're young, right? I'm ready to be a productive member of society now."

It's cases like this that make me want to keep the death penalty on the table. There's no repairing this guy, obviously. We can either warehouse him on your children's dime until we carry his corpse from the jailhouse to potter's field fifty some-odd years from now, or just take him behind the barn and Ol' Yeller him right now.
