French guy defends his foreign exchange grandma from demons. Make sense to me. Except for the French part.

The thing that always makes me wonder about these sorts of stories is that there is a sizable portion of America who thinks things like demonic possession are real. Let's assume that you think that Satan is out there in the world, trying to cause trouble by possessing the elderly. Would this Frenchy Franchi not be doing God's work in purging the demons from this woman's soul? If such a person were seated on the jury, would "I have reasonable doubt because I believe the devil may have possessed that woman" be valid in a court of law?

Our entire legal system appears to break down if you introduce demonic possession, yet we still sentence a lot of people to death.

It's a pity she didn't have any stairs in her house. He had to protect her from the Terrible Secret of Space.

Am I the only one who read this and thought "how can we as a society help this man so this never happens again" instead of "let's lock the bastard up." Because punishment does not address the underlying mental health problem and may actually might make him more dangerous. Reward/punishment systems of behavioral change rely on a person having reason, this man is clearly psychotic.

fusillade762: Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Frenchy Franchi

I had to reread the article a couple times just to make sure I wasn't imagining that softball.

She told police he often behaves unusually, saying he's prone to rants, spurts of unprompted laughter and excessive chatter.

How much of a clue do you have to give to the world that you are Farking nuts?

Hey! I resemble that remark!

But I have no interest in saving anybody from demons. Rather I'd like to politely request that somebody save me from tomorrow's hangover: this place is full of things to strangle or smother me with, but I'd prefer you bring your own shotgun.

"I have to protect you," Franchi told her, according to the report. "I have to kill the demons."

The police said "No Franchi. You are the demons."
And then Franchi was a criminal.

This guy attacked a woman twice his age for HOURS and she not only survived but escaped?  I'm amazed he didn't surrender to exhaustion long before then.

So what you are saying is, you don't support jury nullification?

We could burn him at the stake to purge his demons.

Thought of that movie too.

"Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.."

Among that crowd, there is a method for delivering someone who is possessed. "Beat the crap out of them" is not on the list.

Yup, the Catholics come in and after verifying that there is no mental illness, perform their rite.  The evangelical method:  1)  Have a group of people praying with you; 2) Bring your bible; 3) Command it to tell you it's name; 4) Command it out.  Don't ask questions, but give commands. No hitting.

Went to a Jesuit high school where there was a priest who purportedly had been involved in an exorcism.  Also know a couple evangelical people who've been involved in that sort of thing.

I'm sorry, but I just find that hilarious... "Ok, you seem perfectly sane... Now, let's get that demon out of you by performing this magic ritual!"

I try not to make fun of the religious too much, but man... When you're believing in actual literal demons and possession and shiat, you really shouldn't be allowed to judge anyone else's sanity...
