El Paso Gunman Pleads Not Guilty

A NOT GUILTY PLEA CAME QUIETLY THURSDAY FROM PATRICK CRUCIUS, THE MAN CHARGED WITH KILLING 22 PEOPLE AT A WALMART IN EL PASO. THURSDAY WAS HIS FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE SINCE THE BIGGEST SHOOTING IN U-S HISTORY HAPPENED IN EL PASO. IT WAS A VERY SHORT COURT APPEARANCE FOR CRUCIUS, BUT INJURED VICTIMS AND THE FAMILIES OF THOSE KILLED WERE IN COURT TO SEE IT, MANY WEARING BLACK.

LAST MONTH, CRUSIUS WAS INDICTED BY A GRAND JURY ON FIRST DEGREE FELONY CHARGES THAT COULD GET HIM LIFE IN PRISON WITH NO PAROLE … OR POSSIBLY THE DEATH PENALTY. IT’S THE DEATH PENALTY THAT THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IN EL PASO IN GOING AFTER AFTER THE FEDS INDICTED CRUCIUS ON HATE CRIME AND OTHER CHARGES FOR THE KILLINGS.

THE DEFENSE MIGHT CONSIDER AN INSANITY DEFENSE SINCE CRUCIUS ADMITTED TO THE SHOOTINGS TO POLICE.
