Doctor says bishop's attacker not criminally responsible

A court hearing will be held to affirm what a psychiatrist has already found –  the man who attacked Kamloops Bishop David Monroe should not be held criminally responsible for his actions.

  1. Regardless being criminal or lunatic, that man should be put away. Maybe if the latter, yes not responsible before the law (as the usual evasion of the former to rationalize the deviation). If ever, extreme eccentricity should be more rehabilitated with circumspect. Given the former, if ever (from a judge's opinion himself at one point that judge said there is no such thing as rehabilitation for criminals. But economics dictate criminals have to walk). Let alone the kind of justice system we have perhaps finding the assailant as a medical issue instead of being under judicial should be a blessing in disguise.
