Chardon shooter ruled competent

Judge rules TJ Lane competent to stand trial in Chardon shooting:

17-year-old Chardon High gunman T.J. Lane has been found competent to stand trial even though a psychiatrist testified that Lane suffers from psychosis. The shrink stated that part of Lane’s psychosis is that he suffers from auditory hallucinations and involuntary fantasies.

You’ll have to excuse me if I heard this all before but it sounds exactly like the same symptoms that Rocori High School shooter John Jason McLaughlin claimed to have had. Luckily the jury didn’t buy it and he got two consecutive life sentences.

You’ll now see an insanity defense being built not to mention the kid criminal crowd will use this as an excuse why he shouldn’t be tried as an adult.

Personally, I don’t buy it. I think he’s faking and I think the shrink could be sympathetic to Lane. Either that or he fell for the easy to fake ‘symptoms’.

And again I ask why do the ‘voices’ never tell anyone to paint the house or do volunteer work? Why is it always commit mass murder?

Since he can’t be executed he deserves a long stay in the Gray Bar Motel. As in forever.

    Stick to blogging, not psychology.
