Wiesel Attacker Cops Insanity Plea: Pure Evil Or Just Really Dumb?

Posted By and on Fri, Nov 30, 2007 at 12:23 PM


Evil teenager-ish Eric Hunt is pleading insanity. He's been in the nutcase wing of the big house since February when he allegedly stalked, then dragged Nobel Prize winning Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel off an elevator at the Argent Hotel. At the ripe old age of 23 Hunt has copped a 'not guilty by reason of insanity' plea -- for the second time -- after first dropping the insanity schtick in favor of the simpler, and infinitely stupider, 'not guilty' plea. Judging by his taste in stalking targets -- an elderly Jewish writer over, say, a movie star or a politician -- Hunt does seem insane, or at the very least, really really dumb. I mean, who does that?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
