Lawyer: Orlando Shooter is Mentally ‘Ill’ November 8, 2009

Jason Rodriguez, seen in the picture above, is responsible for killing 1 and injuring 5 others after going into a former place of employment where he went on a shooting rampage. He is now being held without bond and is being charged with first degree murder. Orange Country Police department has put this man under suicide watch, as they think he may commit suicide at any point in time.

His family isn’t taken it well, as they have released a statement saying they are very sorry and sent condolences out to the families that were hurt in this tragic shooting. His lawyer is calling him extremely mentally ill after going through unemployment, foreclosure, bankruptcy, and divorce. His problems shouldn’t have come at the expense of other people’s lives.

One major question that BWC is asking – did the Fort Hood shootings influence this man to go and take his grievances out on other people? Remember, this shooting happened a day after the Fort Hood shooting that left 13 dead and about 38 injured. Though reports haven’t come out, and it is unlikely that he will ever admit it, it may be that the Fort Hood shootings influenced him to carry out a similar crime in Orlando. This is absolutely horrible and our condolences go out to the families of this horrific crime.

He may face a death sentence if he is found competent to stand trial and is found guilty. If you want anymore information..go to this link.

I don’t understand morally how his lawyer could actually defend him knowing what he did willingly. It’s weird, but I guess money plays into it… Either way, I have family out there. I’m just glad they’re ok, but I feel for the families that were affected by this.
