...and frankly, I can't see it as anything but a good thing:
Lawyers for the 'womb raider' killer Lisa Montgomery - the first female federal death row inmate to be executed in nearly 70 years - have said she was 'disconnected from reality'...They are, of course, pinning their hopes on the Eighth Amendment, which - bizzarely - states the government is banned from executing an inmate if the individual cannot rationally understand why it is happening to them.
Which is strange, because surely it only matters what she thought and believed at the time of the crime?
Aside from arguing the federal government executed a mentally ill woman, Harwell also blasted Montgomery's treatment in the moments leading up to her death.
She told the Huffington Post Montgomery was denied her right to have her spiritual adviser John Francisco present in the chamber where he was going to sing to her as she was put to death.
'It was a needless indignity, and a deprivation of really her basic humanity,' said Harwell.
Frankly, most people will think she gave up any right to insist on basic humanity when she strangled a pregnant woman and cut her unborn child out of her...
