I've found this case on youtube (https://youtu.be...). This is one of the gruesome murders that I ever heard. Do psychopaths have a conscience? Should the insanity defense be allowed in cases like this? To me the answer is no.

I am not condoning crime, but having experienced psychosis, I know that these criminals are not always there. They may be guilty, but not as guilty as a neurotypical person.
