Planned Parenthood Shooter Ruled Incompetent To Stand Trial

Robert Dear will now be sent to a state hospital for treatment and rehabilitation
Planned Parenthood Shooter Ruled Incompetent To Stand Trial

The judge presiding over the case of Robert Dear, the man who shot up a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, has ruled him incompetent to stand trial. Dear will be sent to a psychiatric hospital to until he has been sufficiently rehabilitated.

Via ABC News Denver:

A judge has ruled that the Planned Parenthood shooting suspect is not competent to stand trial at this time.

Judge Gilbert Martinez ruled that Robert Dear should be sent to a psychiatric hospital designed to restore his competency.

Presumably, Dear's trial will be delayed until they're able to restore his competency, should that be possible.

This highlights the danger in what the Center for Medical Progress and David Daleiden did. By putting out lies and more lies about Planned Parenthood, they invited mentally unstable people to act.

And one did.
