Ramsey in Court: 'Get Me out of Here'

Ramsey mouthed the words "I love you" and "Get me out of here" to an unidentified person during a court appearance Friday in Stamford.

 

Handcuffed with a gray sweatshirt draped over his shoulders, Aaron Ramsey, the on May 3, made a short appearance in Friday morning where his case was continued until Aug. 31.

Ramsey's public defender, Howard Ehring, told Patch that the case was continued because the presiding judge, Richard F. Comerford, Jr., was unavailable.

"We'll just see what happens on August 31," Ehring said.

On the way into the courtroom, Ramsey turned his head toward the audience and mouthed the words "I love you" to an unidentified person. On the way out, he turned again in the same direction and twice mouthed "Get me out of here."

Ramsey is accused of with a wrench and then stabbing his body repeatedly. He was found late last month and is being held on $1 million bond.

Jlo is one of the meanest people to ever post on these forums. He deserves a life sentence helping out the world. I know ive heard stories about how he was a nice kid and it was not like him to do something like this. The drugs he was under the influence of changed his mental state of mind during the crime making him unable to distinguish right from wrong. The defense that he was incompetent to committing the crime may hold up in court like it has many times before. PCP is a strong drug that can make someone think things and do things they would NEVER have done before.

What if you were depressed at one point, started doing drugs, got into some weird drugs such a pcp. You try it a couple times you think its cool. Then you take too big of a dosage and you sense of reality and ability to control your actions is gone. You become out of control and when one person has no control over there body and do something that there normal state of mind would never commit should have a less severe penalty. Aaron was a good kid but slipped down a path with weird drugs, and who knows maybe he had a physcotic episode

Doesn't mean I shouldn't be held accountable for it, in fact I think in most cases voluntary intoxication trumps an insanity defense unless a doctor rules that prolonged drug abuse has led to an actual disorder. Plenty of "good kids" have had one two many and killed someone while driving drunk, should they not be held accountable because they were under the influence? What if Ramsey got out of jail and got back into drugs, this could easily happen again. I'm not saying he wasn't a good kid, he might have been the nicest guy ever but it doesn't change what he did. No one made him do drugs and just because he did doesn't mean he shouldn't pay for his crime in full.
