Not surprisingly Bruco Eastwood, the triggerman at 2010’s shooting at Deer Creek Middle School in Littleton, Colorado, has been ordered to the state psychiatric hospital in Pueblo.
By all reports Eastwood seemed sane at the hearing even going as far to apologize for his actions.
“Mea culpa,” he said in front of the packed courtroom. “I apologize on my behalf. The words can’t express how remorseful I am about my reactions to my mental illness. I am sorry.”
“I have lost a lot more than my dignity and respect. I have lost a lot of forgoing perspective into my life. I’ve lost everything,” he added.
Personally I have no doubt that Eastwood was in fact insane at the time of the shooting and I also had no problem that he was found not guilty by reason of insanity. What I do have a concern about, as I’ve mentioned before, if his treatment is successful and he’s released to the public is anyone going to be keeping track of him to make sure he’s maintaining his treatment? Or are we just delaying a repeat of his actions in a few years?
Back in early 2010 batshit crazy rat bastard Bruco Eastwood shot two kids outside of Deer Creek Middle School in Littleton, Colorado. Yes that Littleton, Colorado. The victims have recovered but I’m sure they’re scarred in more ways than one from this.
Anyway this week Eastwood was found not guilty by being batshit crazy. I don’t have a problem with this verdict because I posted before about Eastwood’s mental problems which included such things as he was picking imaginary critters off of himself that he called transforming forces and that he heard voices from a Neilsen box on his TV.
What I do have a problem with is what’s happening to him after the verdict. According to the article he’ll probably spend less than 7 1/2 years in a mental facility. That’s just great. Let’s say that the treatment he receives there and actually makes him sane. What happens if he decides he doesn’t want to take his meds anymore? What if the imaginary critters and the voices come back?
What I’m saying is I have no problem with him getting treatment to make him better but just don’t turn him back out on the streets without any real supervision.
As expected Bruco Eastwood has entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.
If you’ll recall the 32-year-old Eastwood opened fire on Deer Creek Middle School in Jefferson County, Colorado striking two students who luckily survived.
As I previously posted not only did Eastwood claim that he was bulled when he attended the school decades ago but that he also heard voices from a Neilsen box that was in his building.
He’s looking at either decades in jail or a lifetime of commitment in a psychiatric facility. In this rare instance I’m leaning towards the lifetime of commitment, as long as there’s no chance of this dangerous psycho being allowed back on the street.
Deer Creek Middle School gunman, 32-year-oldBruco Eastwood, claims that the reason he shot two students at the school was because he was bullied while he attended the school. So for the sake of argument let’s he say he graduated from middle school on time at the age of 14. That means he held on to that for 18 years. If that is true that makes him weak and a loser. He says that he was bullied by ‘rich kids’. They were the ‘jocks’ of the 80s.
Anyway don’t put much credence into that claim because Eastwood also claims that he was being mind controlled by a Neilsen Box that was put in his apartment in 2002.
He’s been ordered to stand trial however I think it’s a guarantee that the insanity plea will come into play and for one of the few times I think it’s actually deserved.
Deserved as long as he’s never let back out in to society.
The meat of the article talks most about how crazy Deer Creek Middle School gunman Bruco Eastwood is. An affidavit that was unsealed states that Eastwood was picking imaginary critters off of himself that he called transforming forces and how he heard voices from a Neilsen box on his TV.
What’s buried in the article is that the gun Eastwood used in the shooting wasn’t his. It belonged to his father War Eagle Eastwood. Eastwood the elder is said to have stored the scoped hunting rifle in the ever so secure place of ‘behind his bedroom door’.
Listen people, I’m all for 2nd Amendment rights but if you keep acting like idiots with the way you store your guns I won’t be too upset if the government decides that enough is enough.
If you have someone living in your house that hears voices that aren’t really there it would be in everyone’s best interest to keep the gun locked up and not just laying around.
The gunman at the Deer Creek Middle School shooting in Colorado has been charged with 15 counts against him.
Bruco Strong Eagle Eastwood has been charged with counts of criminal attempted murder in the first degree, child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, and unlawful possession of a weapon on school grounds.
Another article I read stated that he was facing close to 100 years behind bars.
I find it weird that we’re talking about a school shooter in the present tense as most of them take the coward’s way out.
He asked the students, one male and one female, if they attended Deer Creek and when they said yes he opened fire. One of the students is in critical condition. I am not going to post their names here but I am praying for their recovery.
Anyway 57-year-old David Benke, a math teacher at the school, obviously has brass ones as he is credited with tackling Eastwood and preventing more casualties.
