When I try to reason how people would interpret the insanity defense, it reminds me of the common misconceptions that juror's have of the defense itself. In the textbook it examines the various insanity defenses and the courts perception of the defenses, while in the video, Lionel tries to examine peoples reactions to the insanity defense. In the textbook while it went to how the defense's many interpretations have effected case outcomes, Lionel's video tries to clarify that how average Americans cant handle the horrors they see when looking at the crime scene photo's and then trying to decide that the defendant could be considered for a insanity defense.
