Holocaust Museum Shooter in Court

James von Brunn, the 89 year old white supremacist who shot and killed a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in June finally appeared in court today. Despite having been reportedly shot in the face von Brunn seemed alert and was able to speak clearly.
He objected to the public defender’s request for a mental competency exam saying: “your constitution guarantees me a speedy and fair trial”.
