Fallout Boy: hardinparamedic: Gyrfalcon: So was he DOA at the jail, or did he survive booking?

Dunno, but supposedly all the officer got was a "talking to" for letting him fall. :)

Quite frankly, and if it makes me a terrible person I really don't care, people like that deserve everything they get. Including it being known what they did in general population.

Have you ever considered that, as a nurse in training, that someone like him could be mentally-ill and not fully responsible for his actions?

Honest question; I am going through my BScN as well.

Nope, sorry, I'm tired of that excuse being used.

I will argue all day long that pedophiles have a truly awful Catch-22 in their lives, caught between mandatory reporting laws and the irrational hate that pedophilia sparks in normal people. And I will gladly agree that a pedophile should have access to virtual kiddie porn if it means he won't be screwing toddlers; and that "Megan's Law" is a sham and a fraud.

But this idea that mental illness makes a person somehow not responsible for their actions needs to be squashed like a deadly mosquito; and I say that as a mentally ill person who has never killed anyone, stolen anything, abused anyone (except myself), and somehow managed to be a productive member of society my entire life. A pedophile may have a harder row to hoe than almost anyone else on the planet--but he's still entirely responsible for anyone he hits with his hoe on the way.

/rant off, sorry.

Alcohol may have  been a factor.

For the love of God, pick one.
