I'm with Barnakeil. Who says hes mentally ill? For all we know he blew a fuze because someone jerked his chain once too often. Maybe Brisbane
harbour officials told him to move or leave or something. What was the trigger? Every man has his breaking point and will depart the realms of normal behavior if that point is reached. Overload of the mind with things that can be dealt with, and things that can't be dealt with. Finally you reach the straw that broke your back and you snap. But you aren't mentally ill. Your cup just ran over and you act out. I've been there myself, first I lost
a good job, then my girlfriend left me, ended up in a whole row of lousy jobs, and then finally my mother died suddenly. The job I was in was mind numbingly boring, and my attendance started to drop. I ended up popping my foreman in the nose after he beaked off at me once too often. Then I walked down to the company nurses station and told them what happened. Ended up going to see a Pshrink who figured I was his meal ticket for the next 10 years. Wrong, Had one session with him in which I laid out all the crap that had happened over the past year. Then I left, quit that job and went on to drive a tow truck for a living. That took the excess load off, and in a week I was happier than I had been in a long while. Speaking to that Pshrink allowed me to list all the things i could control, and all those I had no control over. I dealt with the ones I could and then was free of the overload. The rest of it all fell in line.
You don't need to be mentally ill to lose it. In today's society, where everything is rush rush, money
money, I'm surprised we don't have people snapping all the time. However, mental illness makes a neat excuse to lock up some poor schmuck who lost
it once, and made a scene. Never mind all the things that caused him to lose it. They don't want to have to deal with the causal issues. Its easier to lock the guy up.
