A fifth of this man's frontal lobe has been removed and the majority of the court states "there is no evidence Clayton isn't capable of understanding his circumstances." Eight percent of his brain had to be extracted after an accident over 40 years ago caused extreme damage and he continues to be scheduled for an execution. The conversation completely circumvents the obvious evidence that discredits the death penalty as a form of crime reduction or even the science that attests to the role the frontal lobe plays in compulsivity and decision making. It's obvious Missouri intends to beat its punishment by death record of 10 last year in 2014 by starting off strong this year (with one already performed and another by the end of this week). #psychology   #evidence  for #scientific   #facts
