I have read about many killers who over-indulged in alcohol, drugs, etc., 
before committing a  crime and then wanted their charges reduced because 
they could not form a clear intent to murder someone (Murder of girl blamed 
on LSD use, June 12).

Yet, and without being overly simplistic, these killers almost always seem 
to have the  cognizance to commit the crime, to cover it up, and to run and 
hide from the authorities.
