Thats BS!!! How can you be mentally incompetent when you can over power an officer and take their service weapon out of a holster and shot them in the head? How much money did that judge get slid under his door.

This is an unusual decision in Texas but Law Enforcement will get another chance to remedy this when the suspect is let out in 18 months. Perhaps justice will prevail.(let me guess the battered mother said to the media that he was a good boy and never hurt anyone and she is suing the department).
