Quote: Defense attorney Daniel Fletcher filed a motion asking the court to dismiss the case against his client because Washington has been found incompetent by the Juvenile Court in four previous cases, including once in 2012.
But Jamison said a new evaluation is needed to determine whether Washington remains incompetent. Assistant Prosecutor Dennis Hogan said the last full evaluation was made in 2010.
In that report, a psychologist found that Washington had “previously undiagnosed learning disabilities and limitations” and might have mild mental retardation. A Juvenile Court magistrate ruled that Washington was incompetent to stand trial at the time because he was unable to understand the charges against him or assist his attorney
Comment: The mother likely abused alcohol or drugs during the pregnancy. This is a problem in the Black Community and I wonder what steps Obamacare will provide for these Baby Mommas.

She should be, for raising an out of control animal. Oh he cant learn, then put him down. Why should he be able to go out shooting people and then continue living? This POS deserves the rope.

"Obama-Care" is not on trial either.

That will be for the law to decide. Don't be too quick to deny others their Constitutional rights! It could just as easily happen to you.

This was not some unfortunate accident. The POS went out, with a gun, like a coward, and intentionally murdered a student. And this was not his first run-in with illegal activity, just read the article. F him. String him up.

This is amazing, he is, we are told mildly retatrded yet he has the mental accuity to load a firearm, wait for someone and then murder them. Stop making excuses- white trash/black/trash it's all the same. Fire up the electric chair for him and save the taxpayer's their money. He is a savage who cannot be rehablitated so lets tell it like it is, game over for him. On a final note ,of course the liberal media is soft on reporting black on black crime but if he had been shot by a caucasian there would be protest marches in downtown columbus. Wake up ohioan's its time to flush our collective toilet!!!
