Dr. William Reid says the gunman had a serious mental illness. Reid says despite the illness, the gunman knew right from wrong and was able to act willingly.
Dr. William Reid says the gunman met the definition of legal sanity.
Dr. Reid: "Had I been able to see him immediately after the event, I would have wanted to see him right then." Because that did not happen, Dr. Reid wanted to review materials before questioning the gunman.
Dr. Reid was given 75,000 pages of material related to the case. He said he did not review everything. Did not review victims' medical records.
Dr. Reid said he watched all 24 hours of jail video for the first 7-10 days the gunman was in custody. Spot checked after that unless there was a specific event.
Dr. Reid felt the jail video from the first 7-10 days was most relevant to the case. The period closest to the event is... more likely to be related to the way he was during the incident.
Dr. Reid said the gunman appeared "pretty much like other inmates might appear" during the jail video from his first 7-10 days in custody.
Jail videos had no sound.
- Judge's Order
Defense: "Objection - leading."
Judge Samour: "Follow up - overruled."
Dr. Reid said he observed behaviors that were "oddities or interesting, but nothing that said 'goodness, this is evidence of, or highly suggestive of, insanity.'"
"He seemed to sleep at odd hours... He eats, he reads, he plays with a hacky sack. He seems to follow instructions," Dr. Reid said about the gunman's behavior during the first 7-10 days in jail. He was able to communicate with jail staff.
