96. You misquoted me when you wrote: 'undeserving of humane treatment'

I wrote 'mentally ill and undeserving of inhumane treatment.'

Even that was partly in response to those who made hints the last few days he was or would be treated badly by authorities. That's not a given with me, but it may be with some who have found fault with the police.

They'll tend to him with all the care possible since that is one of their professional qualities, nor I did suggest any doctor or hospital in Boston (or hopefully anywhere) would be remotely 'inhumane.'

As far as being 'mentally ill', he wouldn't be in the normal sense or people that we know and care about personally, or that we advocate for getting the treatment they need; but psychiatrists will likely be employed to determine quite a few things about him in his defense.

And he was found with a mouth to the back of his neck wound - possibly self-inflicted. It was speculated in a news report posted here last night - that he attempted to commit suicide.

One of the definitions of a person requiring commitment for mental health reasons is being a danger to oneself or others despite having done what would be considered a criminal act. I and others have posted articles claiming he was under the influence of his brother, so much so that he did this act. I suspect his public defenders will use anything to get him off, as they are charged to do so, including an insanity defense.

Some would be relieved at such an outcome rather than assume a teenager was a cold-blooded killer. The evidence is damning, too much on video. It's been posted here that the authorities watched those repeatedly until they put together a sequence of events.

There will be the eye witness identification by Jeff Bauman, who watched the older brother set the bomb that took his legs off down next to him, but didn't realize what it was.

So would you 'care to phrase that a little more precisely, or is that what you meant to say?' to me, since you may have read it incorrectly?

Or is there some other issue you have in mind?
