The case of Kenneth Parks is explained, since he was a man who murdered his mother-in-law and attempted to murder his father-in-law all while he was sleepwalking. Eagleman begs the question of whether it was Parks fault, and if it was not, then is if all criminals are not faulted for committing a crime when they have a mental disorder. He asks how far the scale can go to forgive a person of their crimes, a main theme of his writing. The topic is interesting, since gunman that fire away at others because of a tumor in their amygdala, for example, may only have done what they did in the heat of the moment. Though the question remains as to why that person did not see a doctor so that the issue could have been corrected, so it could have also been their fault.
