COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - The man accused of killing three people and wounding nine others in a shooting rampage last year at a PlannedParenthood clinic in Colorado was declared incompetent to stand trial at a court hearing on his mental state on Wednesday.The ruling by El Paso County Judge Gilbert Martinez effectively means a suspension in criminal proceedings against the defendant, Robert Lewis Dear, 58, stemming from the first fatal attack on a U.S. abortion provider since 2009.
The bearded, disheveled Dear, visibly angered at the ruling, called the judge “prejudiced” and a “filthy animal” as he was led out of the courtroom at the end of the 30-minute hearing.
Dear, who has proclaimed himself guilty and a “warrior for the babies” in previous courtroom outbursts, will be transported back to a state mental hospital in Pueblo, Colorado, for “restorative treatment,” and his status will be reviewed again in 90 days, on Aug. 11, the judge ordered.
Martinez cited the findings of two court-appointed state psychologists who evaluated Dear and concluded he was suffering from a psychotic delusional disorder that they said rendered him mentally unfit to stand trial.

He is a conservative so him being mentally incompetent isn't surprising.

He went on a shooting rampage. Nothing " Conservative " about that.

Conservatives don't react to emotions in that way. Liberals do.

If society were decent, mental incompetence would be the only way that baby-killers could escape the noose.

Otherwise, stone them to death?

Yet, conservatives are the ones who hate abortion, like this nut job.

Good thing this thread isn't about "baby" killers.

The last line belongs to Elmer: "I may be a scwewy wabbit, but I'm not going to Awcatwaz!"

Fast forward to 5:55 for the punch line:

Which is why the attacks on doctors and arsons against Planned Parenthoods were conducted by pro-choice liberals.
