Remember “Superman” Deobra Redden, the 30-year-old violent offender who attacked a judge by playing “Superman” the moment she started to sentence him to prison in an earlier case? The guy who gave the judiciary a little taste of the violent offenders they release out onto the streets on a daily basis to victimize the little people time and time again?
You know, the guy who said he was “just having a bad day” and because of his experience using violence to get what he wanted in the world, he was going to kill a judge.
From the NY Post:
The Las Vegas felon who hurled himself over a courtroom dais and attacked a female judge earlier this week said he was trying to kill her and blamed his action on a “bad day” while refusing to appear in court to face the new felony charges he was handed.
Deobra Redden, a 30-year-old, three-time felon, was being sentenced Wednesday by Clark County District Judge Mary Kay Holthus for a conviction for attempted battery with substantial bodily harm.
Redden’s attorney had asked Holthus to grant parole for the three-time felon, but she sentenced him to jail due to his violent past and repeated arrests.
“I think it’s time he got a taste of something else because I just can’t with that history,” she said.
If he was going to kill a judge because he was having a bad day – right there with armed security around – do you think you or your family would stand much of a prayer against this monster unless a good guy somewhere nearby had a gun?
Well, today, Deobra the rabid animal was back in court. If there isn’t an expression about when you act like an animal, you get treated like an animal, there certainly should be. Deobra didn’t wear some hip hop sweatshirt today.
Nah, instead the local jail folks had something extra special just for him.
Along with some beefy staff members more than ready and willing to pound him into submission should he get frisky again.
LAS VEGAS — The same judge accosted by a defendant in a Las Vegas courtroom last week sentenced her attacker Monday to up to four years in prison in an unrelated case.
Deobra Delone Redden leapt over the bench and attacked Clark County District Court Judge Mary Kay Holthus in her courtroom last week after trying to convince the judge he was turning around his violent past.
The sentence handed down Monday was in connection with a baseball bat attack on a person last year. Redden stood in court in shackles with a mask on his face and orange mitts on his hands, flanked by a group of jail officers.
His lawyer, Caesar Almase, declined to comment outside the courtroom. In the attack last week, Redden had to be wrestled off the judge by several court and jail officers and courtroom staff members – including some who were seen throwing punches.
One courtroom marshal was hospitalized for treatment of a bleeding gash on his forehead and a dislocated shoulder.
Redden launched himself at the judge just after asking for leniency and describing himself as “a person who never stops trying to do the right thing no matter how hard it is.”
Typical bad guy. His mouth spews what people want to hear while every fiber of his body does exactly what he wants to. And he’s used to using violence to get what he wants, hence why he attacked the judge. Heck, he admitted to wanting to kill her.
Utterly violent criminals like Deobra Redden are why millions of Americans carry our personal defense tools with us on a daily basis – and why that number continues to grow.
