“Just shoot me, please. I killed my poor little baby.”
That’s what Micah William Harrison told a Hamilton County judge during his court hearing Thursday afternoon. The Alabama man, now facing a murder charge for the death of his 2-year-old son, appeared impatient as he sat in a remote courtroom at Hamilton County Jail, repeatedly interrupting Magistrate Judge David Najjar as he asked standard initial hearing questions.
“Just let me go. Just do whatever, man,” said Harrison, 30. “I can’t do this right now. I just can’t. There’s too many questions. Just finish me or something.”
Before the hearing ended, Harrison started sobbing.
As Najjar read him his rights, Harrison said he should not have any and begged the judge to kill him.“Something’s wrong with me,” said Harrison, who, while waiting with other inmates for their initial hearings before a video camera, had to be taken back to his cell after a scuffle with officers. An hour later, after all other inmates had gone, officers brought Harrison back to the courtroom in shackles. Four jail officers stood close behind him.
There’s nothing wrong with you, dude. It’s those damn assault knives.
