It’s apparent the former prison guard and Wilkes-Barre resident has aged. Banks no longer has the dark mustache and black hair he had when he originally appeared in court 27 years ago

Unlike this murderer, his victims have not aged in the past 27 years. I'm okay with executing this mass murderer (and I haven't looked up and don't care about his skin color or that of any other criminal - it's the crime, not the quota system that matters).

Banks was incompetent to be executed, finding that he was too mentally ill to understand that he was facing execution.

I'm not a big fan of capital punishment, if only because of the way DNA evidence is showing our system of trial, alleged to be the best in the world, is falling so totally flat when new technology exposes its frequent failures in the very same cases where prosecutors tell us they take the utmost care.

(And all the rest? where they aren't so very careful but like Nifong dig hard for conviction?)

But why the emphasis on being "mentally ill"? If they are ale to understand, they go down. If they're animals (think killer pit-bulls) they go down. But this space in-between... nope.

This system is screwed up.

Revenge can demand the death penalty, no question about that. But there is no consistency in application.

I wonder how much the state of Pennsylvania has invested in this creep after 27 years.
