• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I saw this on the news last week and just about soiled myself.

That's the way we do it here - any trait we can't fully explain we make up a disorder for.

I can't wait for the first time someone uses this as a defense in court. Course if it's in Cali, they'll probably get off.

There you go. I just learned something new.
I think the person who brought this term to the media last week was acting like it was new.

Mental Illness and Criminal Responsiblity

It's also important to note that a diagnosis of a mental illness does not equate
to a legal determination that a person was not responsible for their behavior.
Such a determination is 'legal insanity.' I've participated in the evaluation of many
people with diagnoses ranging from paranoid schizophrenia, to drug dependence, and
almost all were determined to be responsible for what they did.

Also, several many mental disorders are EXCLUDED in many states as grounds for legal insanity. (eg., Here in MS which has casinos, a diagnosis of 'pathological gambling' can not be used to demonstrate legal insanity).
