In Cold Blood

is it easy for us to decide if perry is a paranoid schizophrenic? if yes, should he be exempt from the death penalty?

should perry be sentenced to the death penalty even though he had a mentel condition?

Perry was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. So this is really an ethical question. The court should ask one simple question. Was Perry aware of what he was doing at the time of the murders. The answer is yes. The home invasion was planned ahead of time. I don't believe Perry wasn't cognizant of what he was doing at the time.
