President Jimmy Carter Thinks Navy Soldiers are Mentally Retarded?
So I was reading this article on Fox News about a Georgia inmate, Warren Lee Hill, who is set to be executed. This inmate killed two different people and he should be put to death. Not everyone thinks that society should be safe from violent murderers though. Some inmates play the "retard card" and claim that they should not be put to death because they are mentally disabled even though a judge and jury have already determined that they are not mentally disabled. Some people actually believe this inmate trick though. Former President Jimmy Carter is one of them. Carter is speaking up in support of this Georgia inmate. Carter believes the inmate when he says he is retarded. Inmates don't lie right? The former President has not seen any recent evaluations by doctors. He has not seen testimony of the trial where the inmate's friends and family say he was the leader of the family. Oh, and get this, the inmate was a soldier in the Navy. I am pretty sure you cannot be mentally disabled and be in the military. Soooo, if former President Carter believes that this man is mentally disabled, then that means Carter also must think the Navy has mentally retarded soldiers right?
