James Holmes’ plea change (from not guilty to not guilty by reason of insanity) has been accepted by Judge Carlos Samour, a change which gives the state of Colorado a great deal more freedom to investigate the mental well-being of the accused shooter. Holmes will now be transferred to a mental health facility in Pueblo, where he could remain for several months, and may now be given one or more “truth serums” as part of the state’s investigation of his mental stability. The change also led Judge Samour to admit into evidence a notebook that Holmes mailed to his psychiatrist in the days before the shooting, stating that the defendant’s insanity plea waives his right to doctor-patient confidentiality.

After they arrested me, I sat in my cell and I thought, ‘I’m looking at five to seven years.’ So I asked the other prisoners what to do. They said, ‘Easy! Tell them you’re mad! They’ll put you in a county hospital. You’ll have Sky TV and a PlayStation. Nurses will bring you pizzas.’
A diagnosed psychopath named Tony •  Describing how he got put into the Broadmoor mental hospital in England. He pretended to be insane to get out of a jail sentence, after other prisoners told him to. He copied books and movies he’d seen and read, and was sent to the mental asylum. However, when it came time for him to get out - he couldn’t. He actually was a psychopath, according to a number of tests that had been done on him. This excerpt from author Jon Ronson’s “The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry" is a fascinating piece on a subject few know about — how psychopaths are diagnosed and treated.  source (viafollow)
