MAN MARRIES GOAT
- Austrian Cellar man is Mentall unwell.
Surely he should still go to Jail though?
I don't see how anyone would ever argue that he is. But it does depend on what kind of mental disorder or whatever you want to call it, he's got. If he's a psycho- or sociopath (which seems likely) and there's little hope of recovery then I see no reason why he shouldn't go to prison. Either way he will be locked up, whether it's in a mental institution or a prison.
I agree he does need help probably, but at his age it is going to preventative measures to him doing it again rather than treatment to try to cure him.
and there's the fact that for the most severe cases of psychopathy - and certainly for sociopathy - there is no real 'treatment' and no way to be sure if a patient is progressing at all. As you say it's probably too late for him anyway.
Besides, if it turns out he's involved in that other case (there was at least one murder they're suspecting he might have been involved in) then I just don't see how his celeb lawyer will be able to help him all that much.
you can be found not guilty on grounds of mental illness only if you don't understand that what you did was wrong? So yes, obviously he's fucking mental, but he can't be so mental he didn't know that what he was doing was wrong.
and in relation to my posts up there ^^ i think one of the definitions of sociopathy (and possibly psychopathy, I can't remember the difference between the two anymore) is that you do realise the difference between right and wrong but you just choose not to care that what you're doing is wrong.
He can keep saying that he was trying to save her from the drugs and all that as much as he wants, that doesn't change much for me at least.
sociopathy is the proper (and pc) term and psychopathy is an old term (in this country anyway)
"Psychopathy is a psychological construct that describes chronic immoral and antisocial behavior"
whereas sociopathy doesn't have a seperate entry, I think it's more vague maybe
"Sociopathy is a loosely-defined term that may be used to refer to:
* Antisocial personality disorder
* Dissocial personality disorder"
everyone knows a woman loves a man who tells her what to do.
someone (can't remember who) was like, "WELL he clearly did care for them because he did rescue three of them from the basement" but honestly
1) He raped their mother in front of the ones who had to stay down there and
2) If he found it necessary to "save" some of them (when it's more likely it was just because they were screaming too loudly) then he was well aware that it was wrong to keep them down there, and just chose to not fucking care about it.
And he's meant to have been a real bitch to his wife and the three children they adopted or took into fostercare as well.
the social services allowed him to adopt them. Leaving aside the fact he is a convicted rapist, surely they would've made at least some basic checks?
austria is weird.
And frankly, from their visits over the years to ensure everything was ok, they should have been able to tell that it was maybe not the ideal surroundings for children to grow up in... Just think of how unbelievably suppressed the mother has been, for a start.
So far noone has hinted that he's abused the other kids, right?
just because they're family doesn't automatically make them best fitted to take care of the kids you know, but i suppose the social services were like, nahh let's just say it's fine and go for an early lunch break
(i do realise it's not that simple, btw...)
he has really upped the anti for monsterism, I cant really imagine a worse crime, even mass murder doesnt seem as shocking
