A defense attorney’s dream client.
PP was having a bad time until this kook helped their cause. He will now be tagged the pro-Christian anti women rights guy. He set us back years with this.
wow. there’s a shocker :) mental health evaluation for this guy? who’d a thunk it
Yep, all the momentum against PP from the videos has been stopped dead in its tracks by the actions of one obviously “touched” idiot.
Super hyperbolic maternal instinct. Since he knows he cant be a mother he's out to protect the ones that have no protection.
Oh, stop it with the whole gender misidentification BS.
Gee, he doesn’t look crazy. He looks like a typical MSNBC host. Oh, wait a minute...
Well duh....But he still killed them and he knew what he was doing. That’s why he happened to have a gun with him....a big, bad gun.
The defendant said to the courtroom:”Do you know who this is?
This is the lawyer who defended the Batman shooter.” Turns out, he is correct. Would a lawyer who handled a complex, tragic case as The Joker, seek to represent another mass shooter? Or was he assigned this case?
He was assigned. They obviously needed a lawyer capable of representing a defendant in a multiple murder case. Given that the attorney got Batman a life sentence rather than the death penalty, Dear could have done far worse.
You can look at the fruitcake and tell he’s a lunatic. Oh. Sorry. That’s profiling.
Either Dear is a 100% lunatic or one of the best actors I’ve seen. Time will tell.
Defense counsel is a public defender.
When facing a death penalty, it isn’t a bad strategy to act crazy in court.
Has anyone seen a timeline and map regarding this shooting? At this point I still don’t know what actually happened and how it played out.
Is it true that all of the victims were shot outside the PP building? Is it true there were no victims from PP?
King got James Eagan Holmes "12 life sentences in prison without the possibility of parole, and an additional 3,318 years".
Colorado has better summer weather than North Carolina, and the state prison is fairly new and has some amazing views. Multiple life sentences means food, housing, medical care and daily exercise at taxpayer expense for the next 20 or 30 years. Dear is bat**** crazy so they won't execute him, or at least it will take 20-30 ears to do so.
All in all, it's a better retirement plan than most 57 year olds have.
When is the info going to come out on who shot who
This is one that ought be pled out. As you say, he is nuts, and the trial will be a colossal waste of resources for both sides.
