  •  Funny that he held down jobs the last years he (0+ / 0-)

    was schizophrenic and not on meds, no?  And apparently got at least one woman to sleep with him.  

    •  Dudes, schizophrenics do that all the time. (2+ / 0-)

      He's also been dysfunctional enough to lose parental visitation with at least one kid (and perhaps two). I'm thinking the doctor who diagnosed him and the court who accepted the diagnosis had more of a basis to judge than our less-than-Cliffs-Notes version of his life.

      •  Really? I've never known a schizophrenic (0+ / 0-)

        who does not take meds to be able to hold down a job long term.

        •  He was in and out of prison in the '90s (0+ / 0-)

          (including time in the federal pen) and hasn't seen his family since 2000.  Aside from one aspect, his life appears to be highly unstable.  We don't know how he managed to keep his job.  Maybe he was actually on meds during that time.  Maybe the boss was a family friend and kept him on as a favor.  We just don't know.

          was schizophrenic single mom who raised four kids and ran a small business without being on meds. A friend's mother also schizophrenic raised two kids by herself but I don't remember what she did for a living.

      •  some suicide bombers in Israel are mentally ill (0+ / 0-)

        Honest, this isn't just Israeli propaganda.  Terrorist handlers have specifically recruited the mentally ill for suicide missions.  This even includes a Downs Syndrome kid who was talked out of detonating his vest.
