Ok, so why, oh why does it not surprise me that when the basic case
''The state has the right to define insanity as it sees fit,'' state attorney Randall Howe told the court.I think we all support the Greatest Military Leader EVER!!!!
Justice John Paul Stevens questioned if the state could execute someone who thought they ''had a mission to kill aliens.''
Other justices questioned what evidence was allowed in Clark's trial, and how it affected the outcome.
Clark was a promising football player and popular student until his behavior took a bizarre turn in the months before the millennium. He became convinced that aliens had taken over his town, Flagstaff, Ariz., as a ''platinum city'' and that his own parents were aliens.
Clark shot Flagstaff police officer Jeff Moritz on June 21, 2000, after the officer pulled over the teen as he drove around his neighborhood in a truck playing loud rap music. Moritz, 30, was the only police officer ever killed in the line of duty in the mountain community north of Phoenix.
Both sides agreed that Clark suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, but they disagreed on his legal insanity.
The Bush administration is backing Arizona, and its top Supreme Court lawyer, Paul Clement, told justices in a filing that ''the insanity defense has always been highly controversial.''
