Angelo Mendoza Sr. is the wheelchair-bound man from Bakersfield, California who in a fit of PCP induced rage bit his son’s eyes so badly that he actually ate one of the eyes and badly damaged the other. His son is 4-year-old Angelo Mendoza Jr.
Mendoza Sr. was previously found mentally competent to stand trial. Last week he even pleaded guilty to the charges against him. Apparently, a judge was not convinced of his mental competence and even after the guilty pleas the judge found Mendoza Sr. not guilty by reason of insanity.
This means that Mendoza Sr. could spend the rest of his life in a mental facility but it could also mean that he could be out in a few years. Meanwhile, Angelo Mendoza Jr. will be disfigured and partially blind for the rest of his life while dear old dad will have three hots and a cot in someplace that isn’t prison.
That judge should be removed from the bench and disbarred. And ‘they’ should gouge out Mendoza Sr.’s eyes with a soldering iron.
