Charges Dropped for Man Who Beat, Killed Elderly Veteran in Mich. Nursing Home

'They should have known... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The young man who brutally beat an elderly veteran in a Michigan nursing home is having all charges against him dropped because it was determined he could not stand trial, Big League Politics reported.

Jadon Hayden, 22, was at a nursing home when he beat veteran Norman Bledsoe. Bledsoe later died after sustaining injuries from the attack. Hayden was dumped into the nursing home, where he was a time bomb waiting to explode his attorney said, under the misguided COVID policies of Michigan Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

Hayden’s father, Marty, claimed his son had schizophrenia, making him unfit to do time in prison, leading to all charges being dropped.

“He shouldn’t be in prison…So the system is going to fail him again. He’s not going to be rehabilitated,” Marty Hayden said.

He continued, asking why his son was placed in a nursing home despite his severe mental illness. According to Marty, his son was previously living in a group home before reporting hearing voices in his head.

“Why should you put him in a nursing home? All around elderly people,” he said, adding that his son was having difficulty controlling violent impulses and called for help as a result.

While at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor for his mental problems Jadon was diagnosed with COVID.

Under the policies of the time, put in place by Whitmer, he was sent to a nursing home to recover near elderly people who were at serious risk.

This did not happen with his father’s permission, and it is unclear whether or not he was tested for mental illness before his relocation.

While he was living in the nursing home, Jadon filmed himself beating several seniors in their beds until they were bleeding.

“They should have known,” said Jadon Hayden’s attorney Brian Berry.

“I think the facility had an idea of who Jadon was and what type of treatment he needed. I think they knew, or had a history, that he was schizophrenic and it should have been handled differently.”
