I'm not a huge fan of the death sentence but this story about the case of Peter Manuel, one of Scotland's most notorious serial killers did annoy me.
he is now convinced the authorities colluded to ensure Manuel was executed, ignoring a diagnosis of being a psychopath.
This information could have prevented Manuel's execution because it would have allowed the High Court to accept a plea of diminished responsibility.
So this 'leading expert' states that Manuel WAS a psychopath, he confessed to murdering 8 people, but should have been given a reprieve...WHY?!I am now more convinced than ever that the authorities played down Manuel's psychopathic personality in the days ahead of his execution, because they had come to the conclusion that he should not receive a reprieve.
