An Oregon psychiatrist who deliberately sabotaged mountain biking trails near his home in Ashland has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and is now prohibited from using National Forest trails for at least two years.

Force him to take a month's worth of Scientology e-meter tests and we'll consider his debt to society paid.

"Former coworker publicly defends Dempsey's character, urges mercy"

Better beg hard, because this guy is on a lot of shiat lists now.

...that's just crazy.
 
2013-05-14 08:16:38 AM
this crazy bastard lives in my town......it's a small city, with a bunch of trails that come off of mt. ashland and throughout the foothills.  they should send him downhill with no brakes without the boobie traps.  that stupid dipwad.  He's lucky he didn't seriously hurt someone......

I can understand the frustration.  The guy probably just wanted a peaceful walk in the woods with his dog to unwind without having people careening around him.

Unfortunately, the bikers had the exact opposite effect on him and enraged him further.  Too bad, I would have just walked somewhere else.

Are the trails in question supposed to be mixed use?

Too many Thetans, this doctor is glib.

A month in prison?
No, put him on some unnecessary meds that make his weight balloon by 40lbs, with a side dish of random diarrhea and a healthy dose of erectile dysfunction.
That's what they do to us.

At least he's not eating them.

He didn't think this through, you need to plant poison oak close to it. The problem will take care of itself.

I guess he wanted the bikes off the activity paths and back on the roads where they belong.

"You would think a psychiatrist would be able to control his actions," said Rob Cain, President of the Ashland Woodland and Trails Association, "I think this guy was clearly delusional in his thinking. The irony is cruel."


I was under the impression that mental health professionals suffered from higher rates of mental illness than the general population.

The bikers are pretty annoying...

This thread should be golden.  The usual sampling of people who hate bikers, but spiced up with a dash of unstable individuals with a grudge against psychiatrists.
 
2013-05-14 08:45:56 AM
Sure does suck when other people want to play in the same places you want to play, right?
The National Forest is there solely for your benefit.

An abnormally high number of Psychologists/Psychiatrists are as crazy as the day is long.

Cyclist haters and Biker haters. I hate douchebag cyclists that think they own the world almost as much as I hate Harley-Biker types who go around acting like they are going to kick everyone's ass.

Every psychology major I have ever met were bath-shiat insane.

so you think. This is not the end of the story.

That said... I lot of people go into psychology because they have mental issues themselves and want to fix their self.

The Ashland watershed has both multi-use trails and hiker only trails. The hiker-only paths are pretty minimal and only seem to go from the parking lot to the main trail. So, I suppose it's totally reasonable for him to try to kill people if he just wanted to walk his dog in peace.

Here's a PDF of the park.

You guys are missing the point...the riders had been forewarned.  The Shrink just wanted to see how well their childhood conditioning had worked.

About a month before my Grandfather died, my Grandmother covered his back with lard.

He went downhill pretty quickly after that.

I wish i shared your optimism. I tend to think they choose the profession to better conceal and project their flaws onto others.

For sure.
As soon as a therapist can define what is 'normal' for me and how many patients they've 'cured', I will believe them as something more than a manipulative scam in a society that has lost its elders.

This quack job just finally snapped AND got caught... who knows what else they've done.

Farking therapists... more the TheRapists of your mind/wallet.

All he wanted was some attention.

No, not at all.  The underlying reason he became a psychiatrist was to learn about why he is the way he is.

In other terms he wanted to understand the question, "Why am I such a dick?"

One man's "irony" is just another man's "told ya so".

Dabbled in psychology courses, but came away knowing the industry is filled with it's own patient load.

Bicycles make people angry.

/ Specifically fat lazy people.

I hike a lot with my dog, bikers never bothered me.  Other dog owners often bother me with their "Don't worry, he's harmless" idiocy as our dogs begin to engage in a territorial battle.  Leash your dogs!

I hear you. Where I used to trail-run  all by myself on deserted, mostly unused areas mountain bikers eventually found 'my' trail and I never once had any of them say 'scuse me, coming through' or 'on your left' or 'sorry' when taking the same line I was on. I've dodged many a careening knucklehead decked out in spandex and a joke for a helmet.

For all you bikers out, human beings on foot were using these trails long long long before ya'll came along.

/shoulda strung thin piano wire, if you know what I mean

Really?  Because most of bikers I've seen while running/hiking on my favorite trails (in central PA) are extremely polite and friendly.  They also do almost all of the trail maintenance and building, reroute the trails to avoid or fix erosion, and are respectful of private property.

But yeah, I can see how someone not saying "excuse me" would lead you to want them decapitated.  Sounds reasonable.

I could see a nutcase like that using IED's along the paths.
 
2013-05-14 01:40:36 PM
Thats just nuts.

He's lucky he didn't kill someone.
 
2013-05-14 07:32:31 PM
inject him with Invega
they injected me for falling in love with someone

so i think killing someone might deserve the same punishment AT LEAST
