Parade Stabber Had Psychotic Incident in Prison


YEHUDA SCHLISSELTwo-time pride parade stabber Yishai Shlissel suffered “a psychotic incident,” Israeli news revealed Wednesday, and police still did not take this into account when he was released last month, Arutz Sheva reports.

In 2005, Shlissel stabbed a number of marchers at the Yerushalayim pride parade, and was sentenced to ten years in prison. He was released in early July – just weeks before he did it again.

Shlissel may not be fit to stand trial, a Jerusalem Magistrates Court judge ruled earlier Wednesday, after he repeatedly refused to participate in legal proceedings despite being approached by the public defender’s office.

He has had a past history of psychotic episodes, as well, Channel 10 revealed Wednesday night.
