003 Fit to be Tried by Quid Pro Quo
Why discuss the Constitution in connection with a mass shooter?
Hint: No, not *that* amendment. 

Today's episode is a broad overview of determining fitness to stand trial in the United States with a special focus on:

  • the Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution
  • Dusky v United States
  • the Jared Loughner mass shooting
  • link for The State v MJK (reference for further study in episode)

Libsyn was being fighty for a few minutes on Sunday Night, if by chance you are seeing this episode twice there is no difference between copies except for this text.

What do you do when your worldview asks you to look for the best in someone but what you are faced with is the very worst?

The documentary "A Wise Fool" has one take on this question, but this week's Quid Pro Quo episode discusses why in this particular case a background in Forensic Psychology might lead you to a different conclusion.
