spamdog: skyotter: Mental instability and racism seem to go hand in hand, don't they?

Yeah also socioeconomic level, so don't get too smug


Not sure what you're implying here. That mental instability and socioeconomic level (I assume you mean poor) are correlated with each other or with racism or with both?

The important bit is that they've been given an out before being locked away.

It's good, being given an out. It doesn't happen to everyone. The problem comes when you start charting who gets given the out.

You can't really prosecute crazy people. I assume that some clinician was involved. I hope some sort of clinician is involved no matter the defendant so that such decisions may be made early on.

so arrest them, and let the court system determine if they need mental help or if they are just being racist dick bags in need of some jail time.

I'm sure the cops would have also seen it as a "cry for help" if someone had scrawled "die pigs" on a few cruisers. I'm glad we've reached this age of non-selective mental health outreach.

WAT?

 
2017-09-20 12:38:08 AM  
Um, there are mental health courts where those who are mentally ill and found guilty of crimes are required to follow treatment protocols to stay out of jail. For Christ's sake we lovk up the mentally ill for possessing weed and not paying traffic tickets; but this guy is facing no sanctions? To quote the great sage Jake Blues, 'Sounds like bullshiat to me!' And it also sounds white and with money...

Nice way to hide half the story, idiot subby and moderator.

Three Main Page stories in a row about white people.  Does that mean Fark is racist?

(Next three will be centered around cop bashing... then a poop story..... start from the top and repeat.)

Yes, you absolutely can. "Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity" is *very difficult* to actually pull off in this country, because it requires you to, among other things, not even realize what you were doing was illegal/wrong.

Any attempt to hide the crime? Clearly you at least knew what you were doing would get you in trouble if you got caught, so no insanity defense for you.

I'm getting seriously tired of all the racist related news. Not denying the reality of it just the targeted coverage.
 
2017-09-20 12:46:40 AM  
Mentally ill in this case undoubtedly means he either had wealthy, well connected parents or is the family members of a police officer.

One thing I learned from Jon Ronson's Psychopath Test is that if you can get a minor problem definded as mentally ill and needing help from the state psychiatric facility, you can get them off the street forever.

ANYperson espousing these views has mental problems.

The question is who gets absolved of responsibility.

The cynical side of me thought the same thing.  I mean come on, they didn't even taze him. Those aren't the American cops I know. French cops maybe, but not the cops here in the U.S. of A!!

So, mods and Subby... The only mentally ill person to spray paint something racist was a white person I guess b/c this is the 1st newsworthy headline or greenlight I've seen on this... And it seems it must be a massive problem in the US since 3 of 3 green lights have been negative implied white race headlines. But I'm sure there's no way that 0.0001% of the population thinks this way b/c it's all we hear about in the news. yes racism is wrong. This was wrong, but to make half the stories in the news cycle about this shiat is totally disproportionate to the real problems facing our country. And you wonder why the site traffic is down. This used to be a funny site with pithy headlines. Now it's just open season on anyone outside the leftist agenda.

It's possible he's a schizophrenic, and he could be black. (Although you would assume if he were they'd mention it.) Crazy is crazy, and if the voice in your head is telling you to paint swastikas on fences so the bugs that live under your skin don't eat your face and lay eggs and your brain, by Zoltar, you do it.

Which is funny because Drew is a Trump supporter.

sinko swimo: having a judge determine a persons mental health is ridiculous. judges are expert in law. psychiatrists are expert in mental health.


hey, wanna know a secret?  Judges have psych people that work for them who job is to tell the judge if someone is mentally ill or just faking it.  this happens so often, its even a trope on law and order.

the cops should have arrested this chucklehead and let the courts determine if he's crazy of if he's just a racist dick hole in need of some jail time.  cops ARE NOT qualified to make such a ruling, nor is it their job to do so.
 
2017-09-20 01:12:25 AM  
TIL, the important thing is not that the so-called "alt-right" is ascendant in this country, or that racially motivated crimes (on many sides, on many sides) are increasing, but how bad it makes some people to have to hear about it.

Sorry.
Not sorry.

This sounds like the sort of situation in which you would have some sort of specialist testify.

But for some reason specialist testifying doesn't sound quite right, I wonder if there's a better way to phrase it.

Not that humans have the capacity to think this far ahead but...one day this sentiment may be as relevant to your descendants (white people) as it was to black people (gasp and sorry) in the past.
