The case wasn't transferred to a judge who is still breathing until the last few weeks.

I will instantly stop whatever I'm doing and start furiously masturbating the day I read a headline like this where the answer is A or B.

Rising_Zan_Samurai_Gunman: Back then, if you had a child with mental disabilities, the standard recommendation from the medical profession was to institutionalize them.

Even if all they wanted was a Pepsi...

Gyrfalcon: Of course the real issue is this: Would it even be a good thing to do, to release a 70-year old man, who has been in the hospital for over 40 years, out into society? Does he even want to go? I mean, I'm sure he "wants" to go, in the same way a child "wants" to run away and live in a treehouse; but could this old man actually survive without massive amounts of help? Wouldn't it be kinder just to let him stay in the hospital at this point, and perhaps let him have free access in and out if he wants to go?

I've seen heavily institutionalized people who are released because the civil rights lawyers seem to think it would be a good thing (because freedom and civil rights and America); and it is NEVER a good thing. Sure it would be better in the abstract for this obviously wronged man to have his rights restored; but insofar as his welfare is concerned, releasing him would guarantee the next headline would be "71-year old former mental patient found dead behind soup kitchen."

CSB: A goth friend of mine posted personal pictures of herself on Livejournal. The Daily Mail found the pictures and posted them in a story about rowdy British teenagers. My friend had no connection to the story, doesn't even live in the UK, and certainly didn't give them permission to use her photos.

DailyFail, indeed.

It would have been better for him to live the last 40y as a homeless panhandler perhaps?

cman: There will be certain people in here calling it the DailyFail despite them shining light on this.

I foresee all

the Washington Times - which broke the story about Mr. Frye after reviewing his case and federal court records

The National Enquirer also sometimes runs actual journalism in between bat boy's dates with lady big foot.
