John Heinze Jr. Appears in Court

The Washington Examiner reports on the first court appearance of Guy Heinze Jr, whom we've discussed before.

"He's scared to death, and he knows he didn't do it," Tyler Heinze, the suspect's 17-year-old brother, told The Associated Press as he left the courthouse.

Police arrested Guy Heinze six days after the Aug. 29 discovery of the bloodied bodies of his father, Guy Heinze Sr., and several members of an extended family beaten with a blunt weapon inside the mobile home they all shared.

It was Heinze who alerted neighbors to call 911 that morning and sobbed as he told a police dispatcher: "My whole family's dead."

Tyler Heinze has supported his brother from the beginning.

What's your opinion? The first suggestion of his innocence was the fact that killing that many people by bludgeoning without ending up with blood all over himself would be impossible, but I thought of another reason. In gun friendly Georgia, why would someone bother with all that effort? Why wouldn't he just shoot them?

What do you think? Please leave a comment.

    Because crazy people by nature don't think rationally. They act on impulse, much like rabid animals.
