Robert Dear had to be silenced during his Dec. 9 hearing after the accused Planned Parenthood shooter began ranting and raving in a violent outburst! The man charged with murdering three people said he was a ‘warrior for the babies’ and ‘guilty’ of the deadly attack!
Robert Dear, 57, wanted everyone to be dead certain that he was the man behind the Nov. 27 attack on the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood Clinic. When brought in to be formerly charged with the slaughter of three innocent people, Robert decided to plead his case in his own way.
“I am guilty! There will be no trial,” Robert shouted during his Dec. 9 hearing, according to CBS Denver. “I am a warrior for the babies,” he also screamed while in the El Paso County court. Reporter Rick Sallinger overheard Robert’s rage, and said the accused shooter also claimed, “You’ll never know the amount of blood I saw in that place.”
Robert’s outburst happened when his lawyers were discussing a motion whether or not to have cameras in the courtroom during his trial. It seems Robert decided that he didn’t need a camera to get his angry message across.
After Robert was finally silenced, prosecutors announced they were filing 179 charges against him, including multiple counts of murder for killing three people during the deadly attack. Robert allegedly mentioned “no more baby parts” after he was taken in custody following his five-hour standoff with authorities, reports CNN. Apparently, he wanted to make sure his motives were crystal clear.

Nine people were also wounded during this rampage. Those left dead by this violent shooting were Jennifer Markovsky, Ke’Arre Stewart and police officer Garrett Swasey. Jennifer was a young mother of two and Ke’Arre was a veteran, having served in the Army during the Iraq war. Prosecutors said that it will take months before they formerly decide whether or not they’ll seek the death penalty if Robert is found guilty, reports Buzzfeed.
