Hoax Boston Bomber Cried in Court as he was Ordered to Stand Trial
Claiming to have a mental: disorder seems to be the modern cop-out: for bad, or in this case, criminal behavior. That explanation: didn’t hold up: for Kevin Edson, the 25 year old student: charged with placing a fake bomb at the end of the Boston Marathon. A Boston Municipal Court judge found Edson mentally competent enough to stand trial.
via Daily Mail:
The man charged with planting a backpack with a rice cooker near the Boston Marathon finish line on the anniversary of the bombing wept in court Wednesday as he was found mentally competent to stand trial.
Kevin Edson, 25, a student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, was sent to Bridgewater State Hospital in April after being charged with multiple counts, including possession of a hoax device, threatening to commit a crime and disturbance of the peace.
A Boston Municipal Court judge found Edson competent to stand trial and ordered his bail cut in half to $50,000 after hearing from both sides.
There is no doubt that some screws have to be loose when a person seeks to terrorize others but that doesn’t always mean a person shouldn’t be held accountable for their actions. What do you is a sufficient punishment for: Kevin Edson’s actions? Comment below.
