Absolutely, the bastard should not have lived long enough to see a judge. Real justice should have been meted out by the witnesses. I daresay they would suffer less lingering effects if they had been proactive in taking him out, rather than allow him to live to taunt them with this desecration. People! We have a responsibility as human beings to STOP this behavior ourselves.... not to WAIT for police.
If the existance of police forces results in the emasculation of free citizens and good people, then fire the police. We’re not worthy of protection and justice, and they are not capable of providing such. It is a delusion. Madness reigns.
Good God! How can any of these “witnesses” ever face this victim’s family? He was a 23 year old young man. This story is layered in wrong upon wrong.
The idea that someone is not guilty by reason of mental state is a gigantic load of crap. That should not be an option in a court of law. Instead, the third option should be “guilty, but mentally incompetent”, and the sentence of the length appropriate to the crime, but with a specialized facility. What’ll happen when this POS is out and about again? It won’t necessarily be the bus next time. I just hope someone is around to save his next potential victim, and puts the criminal out of OUR misery in the process.
