  1. I don't understand why people are getting so upset about the court's decision. All they said is that a I.Q. test alone can not state whether or not a person is mentally disabled, seems fine to me. Anyway I am also curious to hear exactly how people with disabilities who commit atrocious crimes like murder should be handled who hate the approach of life imprisonment or execution.
