People v. Booker (Cal. Supreme Ct. - Jan. 20, 2011)

Think you understand people?  Then tell me why Richard Booker committed these murders.

It sounded like just an ordinary night out with friends.  That turns into an inexplicable triple murder.

I don't get it.  I really don't.

Needless to say, Booker is sentenced to death, and the California Supreme Court unanimously affirms.  A mere dozen years after the sentenced was pronounced.

P.S. - It's not that I categorically don't understand murders.  I typically do.  For example, here's a case that's also decided this morning, and is your typical fare.  Another death penalty, another unanimous affirmance, another 11-plus year delay.  But I get it.  At least the murder part.
