    I wonder how the insanity plea option impacts the likelihood that criminal acts are attributed to mental illness? Particularly given the presence of the death penalty, which I believe could apply to either Bishop or Stack in these two situations. It would be interesting to look at the media portrayal of violent offenders before and after the institution of this plea to see if it impacted how behaviors are presented.
