Criminal proceedings against the man accused of kidnapping Jaycee Lee Dugard have been sensationally halted because of concerns about his mental state.

Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister made the decision yesterday after a short pre-trial hearing for Phillip Garrido.

Phimister said he had concerns about Garrido's mental competency to participate in his defence.

He is facing 29 counts of kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment in the 1991 disappearance of Dugard

If he goes nuts, put him in an asylum, just as long as he’s locked up and kept away from the rest of us.

Yet he was deemed OK by CPS all those years? Isn’t this the same case? They came to check up on the children and didn’t know he even had her hidden in the back yard?

Now see... IMO,someone who pleads “insanity” because they raped and murdered someone is even more reason to give them the death penalty... right there... in the face... with a large caliber round. If he’s so crazy that he doesn’t know that killing and raping are bad things, he is crazy enough not to care about his own life.

More correctly, they twice saw and spoke to Jaycee, observed the not-to-code living quarters in the back yard, and didn't bother to ask why a convicted, paroled sex offender had an unknown young woman in his backyard, or why he would build living quarters there.

Yep. Its like a ‘mad dog’ principle.

If an animal goes crazy and attacks people they are killed because they are crazy and dangerous. It is perfectly natural.

No one is thinking, Oh the poor animal. He didn’t know what he was doing.

If he is a danger to society, he should be eliminated.

I don’t know how to say this, but he never should have been out of jail in the first place. In the East, they put people who smoke some pot to death, while we let these maniacs run wild on the streets after only BRIEF prison time.

It makes me SICK! It’s not just that the crime happened, but that it was PERFECTLY PREVENTABLE in the first place! It never had to happen! Iam so SICK of seeing criminals get away with EVERYTHING and the dysfunctional get all the chances in life and the functional pay for it day in and day out, paying their full way while others get a free ride!

The California Just Us system is proof that God has no sense of humor when it comes to perversion. It was incredibly easy to demonstrate that pedophile perverts and egotistical leftist perverts that control the California Just Us system, are equally dangerous to California citizens.

Be assured, they do a much better job protecting Marxist California political office holders from angry fathers.

The criminal justice system has it backwards. They exist to protect the innocent population from being preyed upon by a proven preditor. It’s not their job to protect the preditor from “unfair” treatment. It’s their job to establish the fact that this person committed the crime regardless of his state of mind and do away with him in order to protect the rest of society. That’s it.

What a waste of eighteen years that should have been the best of her life. That’s what makes me so SICK. Eighteen years of the most horrific, that should have been the best.

It worked well up to the point where they started worrying not just about the rights, but the FEELINGS of the criminal. How the criminal FELT.

Pacific Rim countries do not execute people "for smoking pot." They execute people for distributing heroin and cocaine. And rightly so.

While Garrido should be executed, he would never have been since he has never been accused of first degree murder.

Garrido’s mental competency was not a problem for him when he kidnapped, raped, and killed this child.

Lawyers who put forth these types of defenses should be disbarred.
