This shithead should've been dead a long time ago. Why is he even still around. He killed a cop he should die. This is just more waisted tax dollars that shouldn've even be an issue. These so-called judges are just dragging their feet on this. For Godsake give this family some closure. Hearing stuff like this just pisses me off cause it's a no brainer. Just send his ass here to TEXAS, and we'll take care of the problem for you. Since between all of you (judges) you all seem to share a brain and no backbone!!! Deliberation my ass!!! This is pathetic!!!
