  •  The average IQ (0+ / 0-)

    of death row inmates is in the 80s, lower than the ordinary average.  And with that as an average, we can assume that a number of death row inmates are mentally retarded and that this was never used as mitigation in their cases.  

    An interesting book: Conviction, by Richard North Patterson. It's a novel about death penalty law in California. Patterson is a lawyer and his research is always good. The novel includes a fictional Supreme Court which includes fictional versions of Scalia and Ginsberg.
