Andre Thomas is INSANE

andre-thomas-one-eyeYou see this guy on left?  You might be thinking he’s mugging it up for the camera, but he’s not.   He tore out his eyeball and ate it.  That’s right.  Actually this is an old photo of Texas death row inmate Andre Thomas after he had plucked out one of his eyeballs in 2004 right before he was to stand trial for the murders of his wife and daughter (he also tore out their hearts, though it’s unknown if he ate them).  Even crazier is that this the judge still ruled that he was competent to stand trial (ie not insane).

Fast forward to now and this time he plucked his remaining good eye and ate it.  Now some might say that he’s faking it, but I don’t think so.  How many people do you know have been that desperate that have pulled out their own eye?  I had enough trouble touching my eyeball when I was learning how to put contacts on.  Remember there was a guy a few years ago who sawed off his arm since it was trapped under a boulder–I could see myself doing that before tearing out my own eye.  Just thinking about it gives me the heebie jeebies.   This gentleman sums up pretty well:

“He will finally be able to receive the mental health care that we had wanted and begged for from day 1,” Bobbie Peterson-Cate, Thomas’ trial attorney, told the Sherman Herald Democrat. “He is insane and mentally ill. It is exactly the same reason he pulled out the last one.”

The article doesn’t really explain what exactly “the reason” he pulled out his eye in both cases, but in my humble opinion if you tear out your wife and daughter’s hearts, pluck out one of your eyes, and pluck out your remaining eye and eat it, you got to be just a little insane, but I’m no psychologist.   For more insane information read the Associated Press article.
