The soon to be classic “It’s in my nature” defense

An appeal court judge in Trieste, Italy reduced the prison sentence of a murderer who was able to show he has genetic mutations linked to violence.


To me, it makes sense to do the opposite and just put the bastard to death right then and there. If you as a murderer are coming to the court to try and absolve yourself of responsibility because you are predisposed to murder, then doesn’t it make sense that the court agree with you and consider you to be an unreformable killing machine and just end it right there? Apparently the Italian justice system thinks its a better idea to let you loose sooner so you can get back to doing what you’re genetically designed to do.

If convicted, I wonder if Amanda Knox will try a similar “It wasn’t me, it was my genes!” appeal.
