Wien Experts Disagree
lENTIOX has already been made of that murder trial
in Ohio where six very eminent pyschiatrwt blew
themselves to opposing opinions concerning the sanity,
or otherwise, of a young wife-murdeivr who was on trial.
At it happened, the jury either decided to believe
the alienists for the state and to disbelieve the alienists
for ths defense, or it put the whole expert- testimony
racket out of its mind and went ahead to use its common
sense; at all events, the prisoner has been convicted of
first degree murder and has beea sentenced to the elec
tric chair.
However, the taste of this thuig lingers. It is such a
typical example' of the fumbling, incompetent way in
which our courts strive to do justice in murder trials
that it is worth extended examination.
This case was right in the accepted pattern-
The murderer's lawyers called three pschiatrista, all
of them very eminent and reputable men. They agreed
that the young man was woefully incompetent mentally;
he was, they said, half way between a moron and an
outright imbecile.
Then the state's attorneys called three other psy
ehiatrists, all of them quite as eminent and reputable
as the three the defense hsd called. They agreed that
th young man was quite normal mentally, fully able of
weighing the consequences of his acts and distinguishing
between right and wrong.
Now we haven't the faintest notion whether this par
ticular killer was. In fact, a lunatic or a normal human
being. But it does strike us that this method of getting
at the truth is about as poorly devised as anything one
could imagine
Why. in the name of ordinary logic, -wouldn't it be
better to hold the sanity hearing in advance of the trials
with qualified alienists hired, not to testify for one side
or the other, but simply to render the truth as they saw
it? If they reported the prisoner insane he could be
locked up; if they found him sane, he could be put on
trial and the case could be decided on its merits.
The present system leads only to confusion. It offers
the hardened, intelligent killer a chance to escape the
punishment he deserves, and it also makes it possible for
the state to electrocute some poor nit-wit who ought to
be in a hospital. The one thing it does not do is offer
a chance for dealing out exact justice.
There is a good deal of talk nowadays about respect
ing the courts. How is it possible to respect a system
that undertakes to get at the truth in a roundabout, in
efficient manner like this?
