Dad who killed 4-year-old daughter during visitation is supposedly "mentally incompetent" (Lubbock, Texas)

So if killer dad JUSTIN CHISOLM's schizophrenia is so severe and uncontrolled that he is "mentally incompentent", then why was he ever granted child visitation rights--supervised or unsupervised? Because frankly, for men this volatile and violent, having an unarmed/untrained "supervisor" around is no protection. JOSH POWELL killed his little boys with an axe and burned his house down during supervised visitation--after he managed to lock the supervisor outside.

Once again, we see how even certifiably mentally ill fathers are granted their "rights"--all at the expense of the kids.

Do you really think this little girl benefited in any way, shape, or form by having ongoing contact with this lunatic? Obviously not.

This is not to say that I don't have sympathy for people with mental illnesses. I just have more sympathy for kids who are stabbed to death--all because they forced into contact with violent, homicidal fathers.

The father of a 29-year-old Lubbock man accused in the Feb. 1 slaying of his 4-year-old daughter said his son is mentally incompetent to take care of himself.

Michael Stephen Chisum filed Monday in Lubbock County Court at Law 2 an application to be appointed as the temporary guardian of Justin Chisum.

A hearing is set for Feb. 23, according to court documents.

Michael Chisum’s lawyer, Laura Beth Pleasant, declined to comment on the case until after the hearing.

Lubbock police arrested Justin Chisum Feb. 1 after they found the body of his daughter, Kylee Forrest, in the living room of his apartment.

Police said the girl died from blunt force trauma in a violent attack.

Chisum was reportedly naked when police apprehended him and admitted to officers he killed the girl, according to a warrant.

Courtney Forrest, who was Kylee Forrest’s legal guardian, told the A-J that Justin Chisum suffers from schizophrenia and was taking medication to treat it.

Michael Chisum, who resides in Addison, said in court documents his son has “a long history of mental illness, having been hospitalized and treated in at least seven different psychiatric hospitals spread among three different states over the past decade.”

He said his son is in need of medical treatment but is incapable of consenting to any because of his mental state.

Justin Chisum was booked Feb. 2 into the Lubbock County Detention Center where he remains at present.

His bond is set at $ 1 million, according to court records.
