You have got to be kidding me. This guy deserves prison and nothing less.

We pay for it, but it is the cheaper way out in the long run and generally standard procedure to eliminate the higher cost of fighting his appeal later on. Obviously, anyone who assaults an officer isn't right in the head, but having a mental issues and being competent enough to stand trial are two different things.

What gets me is that he knew exactly what he was doing during the incident. Just like the others that plead insanity, at the time of the crime they know what they are doing but when they get caught they play dumb. Go figure.
