CheckPoint: Mind Over Matter
· Resource: “A Matter Over Mind” article
· Due Date: Day 4 [Individual forum]
· Review the Electronic Reserve Readings for Week five, located on aXcess.
In your reading, “A Matter Over Mind”, the author presents the case of a young man who
shoots and kills a police officer. The case argues a defendant’s constitutional right to use
the insanity defense and the amount of leeway provided to prosecutors.
1. What is the difference between mental illness and insanity? (Hint: What is the
important second prong of the McNaughten rule?)
2. The McNaughten rule cannot be used to defend the actions of a person who drinks
alcohol then murders someone. Why not?
3. Identify each of the following:
o Rational and guilty
o Guilty but insane
o Not guilty by reason of insanity
4. If you were deciding this case, how would you rule? Briefly explain your decision
