Brain Scans and Culpability

Well, we are on our way. This is concerning. These will muddy the legal waters like Polygraphs.

"People can commit exactly the same crime in all of its elements and circumstances, and depending on their mental states, the difference could be one would go to jail for 14 years and the other would get probation," Read Montague, a neuroscientist at Virginia Tech who led the study, said in a press release. "Predicated on which side of the boundary you are on between acting knowingly and recklessly, you can differentially be deprived of your freedom."

I can act knowingly if I whack some armed intruder, but wonder if I will be deemed reckless.

Well, it's a lot more compact than the flaming sword, but it's not nearly as impressive. Just doesn't have that Wrath-of-the-Almighty edge to it. I mean, come on, how am I supposed to strike fear into the hearts of the wicked with this thing?

Support SOCNET.
