Here’s an interesting video. Evidently the dickweed in Aurora was seeing a Psychiatrist. That could mean a LOT of things, anything from ADD and Minor Depression, to serious psychotic behavior…or as is suggested in the video, a plot for an insanity defense. (I’m not a conspiracy sort of guy but who knows?)
Of course the media is doing what they do best, reading into every minor detail they can and attempting to expand it to “breaking news”. Of course it should be pretty clear that reporters attempting to break a story first are frequently getting EVERYTHING wrong.
I wonder about this “notebook of stick figures”, how clear it actually is, or if maybe its something more like this little number. Also the guy arguing against the psychiatrist is attempting to pain patient privilege at going too far. Still I can picture a variant of Tam’s little post about ammo sales:
“Hello Police this, Dr. Hed”
“How can we help you?”
“Oh well I just got out of a session with a patient and he said he gets so mad he could kill somebody.”
“Oh, do you think he means to kill somebody?”
“No, not really, it just sounds like a common verbalization of frustration and anger.”
“So what do you want us to do about it?”
“Oh nothing, just some media dipshit thinks I should tell you ever bit of word salad my patients say”
Also the antis I’m sure will want people who are seeing a Psychiatrist to give up their rights…which will of course keep people from seeking treatment, or take certain drugs (like anti-depressants or Attention Disorder meds) under the less knowledgeable over-site of their general practitioner. Not that any of this shit will solve anything, but if they can stamp out just a LITTLE bit more freedom, the better!
BTW the talk of Client Privilege made me think of this classic clip:
Andy Griffith in his latter years was a pretty extremist “Progressive”, as is Ron Howard now. I wonder if the two of them regret making this scene….
