You misunderstand my statement. People protesting against this form of treatment may lead to physical harm to the patient, his nurses or his guards.

Any risk that the patient has towards the public is shouldered by the mental health team that makes the call on his progress.

The victims family should have been clearly informed of when and how they will be contacted and in what circumstances. I believe this should have occurred in this circumstance but that is not the current rule.


Ah right sorry I think I read it like a continuation of what had been said previously. I agree.

I was just objecting to the family getting screwed as it seems ducked up to find out something like this through the grapevine, especially because as it won't contain context.

I.e. they would hear he was out as opposed to he is being allowed out in very controlled and supervised situations for the purposes of rehabilitation and treatment. Or god forbid meets him and flips their sh*t.

I get that based on the current rules they didn't have to be told but it's kinda sh*t they weren't or weren't told this before hand.

The time between when someone told them he was out and when Stuff conformed the context they may have been terrified in their homes, sh*t scared, not able to go out worried of a potential home invasion or at work, or just the supermarket.

As far as I know they did nothing to deserve that.

"The Block" houses seem to be failing to meet reserve, and are up for auction without code of compliance certificates! I guess the producers don't actually care about the selling or not, or what the contestants get for their efforts, and have already made their money's worth from the advertising revenue?

Apparently Jacinda is in town.... accompanied by bodyguards and policemen. There's really no need for that. What a waste of money.

I stopped assuming anyone was going to win an election after the US one last year.

Dude that isn't Darwinism.

He obviously cared so much for a cause he was willing to die in an attempt to get people to pay attention to.

I don't want to encourage it but it takes more balls than the rest of us. Unless the issue gutted him so much life wasn't worth living any more.

Yea, Darwinism is more like shooting yourself in the head while explaining how the safety on the gun works. This is more like martydom... but why?

Yea or someone showing how they can cook eggs on an engine. Put a brick on the accelerator to heat it faster, and hoisted it on a wicker basket. The basket collapses and runs him down. Darwinism.

Or someone reading carbon supps are good for you, then puts a hose from the exhaust into the car to accelerate it's ingestion and asphyxiates himself.
