    The insane have not been held fully accountable for their actions for quite a while in Western law. Since the code of Justinian in the Western Roman Empire, if I recall correctly. One often sees remarks here that the right wants to take things back to the Middle Ages; she seems to be going about a thousand years further back into the past.
