The headline reads "Life in Prison without parole for schizophrenic killer"

Where do you draw the line when someone mentally ill commits a crime? How responsible are they for their actions? Which part is the illness and which part is their decision to take those actions?

This man murdered a woman. How she was murdered and the circumstances behind it do not seem based in the reality that I live in. On the other hand how do her friends and family feel.

For me I forgave the person that tried to kill me while mentally ill. There have been times where I wondered though how much their illness controlled their actions.


I would like you're views on how responsible someone is or isn't for their actions.
