A federal judge in Texas has found a JetBlue Airways pilot, who left the cockpit during a flight and screamed about terrorists, not guilty by reason of insanity.

The judge's ruling came during a bench trial for Clayton Osbon. It noted he suffered from a "severe mental disease or defect." Osbon was earlier deemed mentally competent to stand trial.

The pilot will go to a federal mental health facility for examination until another hearing on or before August 6. The judge will decide then whether Osbon can be released or committed to a mental facility.

Osbon was charged with interfering with a flight crew after the March 27 flight from Las Vegas to New York. Passengers wrestled him to the floor after he ran through the plane's cabin.

It's obvious that he had some type of mental defect.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
