I Missed This One

9/1/22 AP:
"DENVER (AP) — A federal prosecutor urged a judge on Thursday to order that a man charged with killing three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic in 2015 be forcibly given anti-psychotic medication so his delusions could be quieted at least enough for him to finally be put on trial for the attack."...

"Public defender Natalie Stricklin told U.S. District Judge Robert Blackburn that the government’s proposal to treat a man who believes the FBI has been following him for around 30 years and his defense team is working with them is “overly optimistic” and generalized."

This sort of paranoia is a common mental illness symptom.   On the other hand thinking the FBI is following you around trying to entrap you in a criminal conspiracy is sometimes not mental illness. 

However, the picture of the defendant with the article makes me suspect mental illness.

  1. Old joke: If the definition of paranoia is unfounded belief that people are out to get you, then it is impossible for a Jew to be paranoid.
