A jury watches horrific video of a campus shooting spree. As we hear the 911 call, we see a teenager walk calmly through the chaos, dispatching his victims by shooting them point blank. The D.A. stops the tape to emphasize that the defendant, Matthew Gayles, did not suffer from a mental defect; he simply wanted revenge and didn't care who paid the price. Ollie, defending Gayles, follows with his own opening remarks to the jury. The question isn't whether Matthew killed the three students and wounded another - he clearly did. Rather, he says, the law states that the defendant's mental state at the time of the crime must determine whether he is to be held accountable.
