The Washington Post reports:
“I’m guilty,” Robert L. Dear announced at his first in-person court appearance since he allegedly fired on a busy Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs three weeks ago, killing two civilians and a police officer in the assault and subsequent shootout with police.
Dear, 57, now faces charges on 179 counts of murder, attempted murder and other crimes.
But on Wednesday, startling those in the small Colorado courtroom, a handcuffed Dear declared, “There is no trial.”
“I’m a warrior for the babies,” he said.
