If he is so traumatized and miserable why didn't he elect to have himself capped.

It's like in the black "communitay" when they pronounce him such a good boy, you are expected to be a sucker and believe it.

The problem with the prison system these days is they are too soft! go back to the days of hard labor!! maybe that would deter allot of these criminals from committing crimes, I mean if their too lazy to work on the outside why would they work on the inside!!!

"I agree, only a fool would give up habeus corpus and due process, but our justice system is being held hostage to lawyers who put the letter of the law above justice. "

Posted by an uneducated, libtard that spits on the Constitution.

Don't believe whatever cowardly response she comes up with 10 days after the thread dies.

I don't care how bad your abuse was 30 years ago; there is no excuse on earth to merit Mann's brutal bare-handed murder of his parents for drug money.

sevenfold,

I agree, only a fool would give up habeus corpus and due process, but our justice system is being held hostage to lawyers who put the letter of the law above justice. There are some cases when overzealous lawyers create a miscarriage of justice. Ex; OJ Simpson.

The Louis Mann case didn't need much deliberation, did it? Some cases make a mockery out of justice. Why didn't we allow Mann to sentence himself based on how bad his childhood abuse was, since only Mann knows how bad it was?

Mann's family and extended family denied any allegations of Louis abusive childhood. It was made up stuff that attys helped Mann fabricate for leniency.

sevenfold- sorry, no shame here pal.

The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution each contain a Due Process Clause. The Due Process Clause acts as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the Government outside the sanction of law.

There is nothing in the constitution that guarantees the life, liberty, or property of a convicted murderer. This sentencing was not arbitrarily forced on him.

The reason I suggest we didn't need an atty for him is his unforced confession and all evidence = guilty of heinous murder (of parents no less). Shame on you for defending him.

Well, he and Danny Lee Hill are on the same level; play the abuse and mental illness card and don't have to pay for their actions. Mann was not abused; cousin and half brother said so.Put one between his and Hill's eyes and save taxpayers $'s. McKay had a DWI back in the 90's, so yeah, he is a boozer, just like Tom Old from Newton Falls was. Great role models behind the bench judging others.

Actually, Truthmonger, both Hitler and Stalin would have agreed with your position on the rights afforded to the accused. Your less-than-enlightened outlook is disrespectful to all who have fought and died to protect and defend our country's constitution. Shame on you.

I'm sure the defense atty asked him if either his mother or father had abused him mentally or sexually?

When a drug addict, such as Mann, in withdrawal with a habit of criminal behavior and lying is asked such a question, how do you think he interprets this question? You might as well have asked him if he wanted to live or die or smoke some drugs out back...

There should only be a defense atty in the case when there is a shadow of a doubt of innocence. In this case there was a mt of evidence and a confession and a history of criminal behavior!

Why does society put up with this charade? Any thug can pretend to be human for leniency's sake.

I bet Hitler was abused too.

After careful deliberation the jury decided to not drag this out so they wouldn't have to spend a night at the Best Western Park Hotel.

I seriously doubt that his conscience is going to cause him any sleepless nights.....he doesn't have one.

But is anyone really surprised by this verdict ? Remember folks this is the blameless society we're living in.

It started with the Twinkie defense. Suddenly every scumbag killer was innocent by reason of sugar.

When that excuse finally wore to thin it was "I was drunk/high and didn't realize what I was doing. And now every cold blooded killer was abused and sexually molested.

Anyone care to venture a guess as to what the next bogus/lie of an excuse is going to be ?

One thing we can all be sure of it's not going to be "Yes I did it and I'm responsible for my actions"

He has the values of neither political party, he has the values of a murderer. The jury heard the evidence and decided this was the appropriate sentence. McKay will give him the max. It's cheaper for him to spend the rest of his life in jail than pay for the death penalty appeals. Let him rot.

Want to kill your parents? Go to Warren, Ohio. He can stop pretending to be religious now, that's why he is smiling. Last hope for justice...murdered by the other prisoners. Jurors wanted out of there quick so they could get back to their cell phones.

Both the convict and the lawyer in the article picture will have a special stench remaining on their hands after that celebratory handshake.

Neither one should sleep well tonight.

Wrong decision! I don't know why jury's are afraid to uphold the law when it comes to the death penalty in a capital murder case! Especially when there is no question about the guilt of the defendant. Infuriating.

This is a direct result of Liberals on the jury. Their way of thinking, He can be rehabilitated, he had a bad life, or simply I can't put anyone to death. If you say this isn't true take a look at Texas which is a very conservative state.Any monster who can kill his/her parents should die.
