They "talked too much" to whom?  To him?  To each other?

I blame the parrot. Those farkers are antagonists.

FTFA: Robin Penton was also found in the bathroom. He was rushed to the hospital after first responders found he had a pulse. They said he had taken hydrocodone and drank some rum. They said he would probably have died if they hadn't gotten there when they did.

And this is a problem? They go through all this trouble to bring the guy back just so they can execute him for murder later?

Penton told police he messed up the motorcycles because his former boss is on the board of the bank that gave him the loan to purchase the bikes.

That'll show him.

The investigator said Penton confessed to killing Colleen and cried during the interrogation, but didn't show remorse. He also said Penton told police he will still kill the people he threatened in his suicide note.
At Wednesday's hearing, the defense called two witnesses to the stand. One was a friend of Pentons and the other was a former co-worker. They both said Penton never showed signs of aggression or complained about his wife or boss.
During the hearing, it was revealed that Penton had previously served time in prison for rape, sodomy, assault and indecent exposure in the early 1980's.

Penton told police he beat Colleen in the past, but didn't do it often because he didn't like to do it.
The prosecution said they believe if Penton gets out of jail with a lower bond, he will kill again.



Uh, this guy was bomb pretty much waiting to go off: He shoots  pets, wife, hammers motorcycles, but for his own suicide attempts are pills and booze? He's not so subtly a farking wuss. He'll do well in prison.

If I were those defense witnesses, I'd still be locking my door, FTFA, it doesn't sound like very much escapes his criteria for getting on that list of his...

People this dumb NEED to be incarcerated OR put to death. It's that simple.
How can you deny this?
Would love to hear. :)

Knowing people like this exist should make it easier to demonstrate patience and understanding when dealing with douche people that you don't really
know.

Dave's not here...

Sounds like someone was fed up with her shiat. Also that he has serious issues and needs to be in prison till the end. Sooner the better.

The guy has to be hoping for jury nullification.

:) Not an excuse to kill. Why didn't he just leave her?

It is an ex- parrot.  It has ceased to be.

I can understand killing your wife cause she talks to much, but the parrot?  Just sell the motherfarker!  Buy beer with the proceeds.

she was probably talking shiat.

I'm surprised a gun owner would act so irresponsibly.

I love the prosecutions thinking: If he pays a stiff enough bail, he won't kill the rest of them on his list.

What's the problem?  It's all the bible.  A bush was talking too much so Moses lit it on fire.  Jesus wouldn't shut about the poors so they crucified him.  He should be sainted.

Yeah, that's farking brilliant, isn't it?  That's part of what's wrong with this world.

gfid: Farkingwhatever: ProfessorTomoe: Dave's not here...

Do you think we know or even care what you're talking about?

Wow, I didn't think that would be obscure to anyone alive today.

I'm not sure how it relates to this story, but I DNRTFA.


In "Up in Smoke", Strawberry (the wacked-out Vietnam vet with PTSD) kills his pet parrot with a shotgun when it starts repeating phrases the cops said when they raided the place earlier... That's also the movie that popularized "Dave's not here"... TMYK!

FTFA: Penton told police he beat Colleen in the past, but didn't do it often because he didn't like to do it.

I'm reminded of Shooty and Bang-Bang from Hitchhiker's Guide: "Beeblebrox, either you all give yourselves up and let us beat you up a little -- though, not too much of course, because we are firmly opposed to needless violence -- or, we blow up this entire planet! And, possibly one or two others we noticed on the way over!"

It's about control.  Control over the perp's life.

Pretty much everyone knew "Dave" from their first album long before the movie came out.

Thought at first that this dude just snapped. Tragic but deserving of a little jail time and a lot of mental health treatment.
Then I read the rest: beat her in the past, still intends to kill everyone on the suicide note, 30 years ago committed another really violent crime.

Nope, you're a bad guy. No sympathy--go directly to jail forever.

When a death row inmate codes in the hospital, he cannot be allowed to die without approval of the warden (and sometimes the governor if there are appeals pending etc). So we may have to code them for hours because the state reserves the right to kill the prisoner above all other rights.

/happened twice while I worked critical care.
