Suspect in Houston-area deputy’s death had mental evaluation


AP–  …In 2012, the Travis County District Attorney’s Office charged Miles with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he got into a fight at a homeless shelter over a remote control, prosecutor Joe Frederick said. Miles was found to be mentally incompetent in October 2012 and he was sent to North Texas State Hospital in Vernon, Texas.

“From this case, you could never tell what would happen” in the future, Frederick said, adding prosecutors treated the case as a “very serious offense” and had offered Miles a plea agreement of seven years in prison. Miles was declared mentally competent in February 2013, but the charge was dropped after the victim could not be located, Frederick said.

  1. Wait, I thought he was shopping with his mother when the crime took place. Sounds like a lot of f-ed up DNA in that family.

  2. Another lunatic in the hall.
    Crazy people with guns, not guns with crazy people, eh?
    The FBI is supposed to be on top of this, why do crazy people keep obtaining guns?
    Why do homicidal maniacs rights Trump those who aren’t?
    Federal laws state felons and the diagnosed mentaly ill cannot obtain guns. Yet, who commit the most gun crimes?
    The Progs think a new gun law will stop them, let’s try and enforce the ones already there. See how that works out first.

  3. I have been unable to track down exactly how and when “guilty but insane” became “not guilty due to insanity”.
    It is such an important distinction that one would expect a substantial amount of ink to have run to have run, but it almost appears to have snuck in one night under cover of darkness.
    The resultant harm this change has brought to our society is immeasurable.
    This issue is what creates the difficulty in keeping firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill. Many, like this clown, would felons save this miscarriage of justice.

  4. Not crazy, except his mother said so and he spent a couple of months getting three squares and a cot.

    We discussed the difference between crazy and hateful. I see murderous hate.

  5. Maybe the DOJ and the FBI don’t WANT to put an end to felons and crazy people getting guns, in order to facilitate the passage of more gun laws.

  6. Yet:

    (A) He either passed a gun background check to acquire the firearm, or…

    (B) Background checks don’t stop people with criminal intentions from acquiring any and all kids of guns illegally.
