Except it says supervised in the first sentence. Bad form, subby.
 
2014-02-28 09:20:10 AM  
He can only go from 7-11.

\Bad subby. TFA said "supervised" not "unsupervised"

WTF?


White Hen is still around?

Voices tell you to chop off your coworkers head, and you act on it? That kind of crazy never gets cured.

Bethke promised he would not lose his head during the trips; he wouldn't promise the same results for his escort.

That's no way to get ahead in life, Sir.

"The nut is OK now." Just how do you cure something like this?

Doctor: "He just wants to go to Home Depot to look at axes and saws."
Judge: "I don't see a problem here."

Repent.

He has shown excellent progress.
But I think he should never be unsupervised. Ever.

Why is Rayden dressed up like an Irishman?

Of course he was beheaded.
He wasn't even supposed to be there that day.

Highlander....my favorite movie.

Where a French dude plays a Scottish guy, and a Scottish guy plays a Spainard!

Sure it does.

Single does of a 9mm or larger copper and lead treatment administered intracranially guarantees that the patient will suffer no future outbursts.

Road trip!

Poor guy just wants to head off to the mall.

Dude was an effete snob, he had it coming.

Michael Bethke, of Calumet City, was 28 when he beheaded Joseph Lesinski Jr., of Burnham, while working at a White Hen Pantry in Burnham in June 1991. Bethke apparently wrote a word - one source said it was "repent" - on Lesinski's forehead, the Chicago Sun-Times reported at the time.

/Great, not only a nut job, but a religious zealot as well. Give him time, he will be sawing off some other infidels head the first trip out.

No but it can often be treated effectively with medication. The side effects are awful but you're much less likely to behead someone. So there's that.
 
2014-02-28 10:14:57 AM  
Did he rape his fellow employee's woman before his body was cold?

/because nothing says "classy" like comforting your dead enemy's widow.

I think a bowling alley would be a good start.

The article ends with a quote that it is very unlikely the trial court will grant this.
It's not going to happen, calm down.

How bout no.
 
2014-02-28 10:31:52 AM  
Hey - if these guys behead anyone else, then they'll REALLY be in trouble.
 
2014-02-28 10:56:35 AM  
That's nuts!

How will we know if he can be trusted without extending him that trust?

"Be Only One" not "Only Be One"


I think.

Doctor:  This patient has made enough progress to permit  supervised trips.
Judge:  Nuhh uhhh.


What an awesome legal system we have.  Almost as good as out (mental) health system that will basically only treat you for free if you murder someone.

USA!

Yeah, but he hasn't done it again. I say he's cured. Give him chance.

I think that there should a rule that when a shrink certifies that one these murderous nut cases is cured, the nut case lives with the shrink's family for a year, sort of like a probation.  That way the shrink will know, almost immediately, that the twitch is relapsing, and be able, maybe, to do something about it..  "Now you go with the doctor, Johnny, and remember, no more playing machetes, OK.  Good luck, doc!"
