Pleading insanity ffs. Nothing to do with it, his actions may be as a result of his condition and meds, he is still sane. They should just accept he may be prone to mood swings and take it into account.

So it's complete and utter bollocks then.1205 wrote: ↑Fri May 24, 2019 12:19 pmThe reports were that they wanted a psychiatric report and they didn't receive one, so they didn't or didn't fully take his mental illness into account, but were considering it.
And they haven't said anything about conditions on participation, but if they fined him, they clearly don't want it to happen again. In the case of insanity, to minimize the risk, they'd need him to be compliant and well-monitored.
"to establish a defence on the ground of insanity, it must be clearly proved that, at the time of the committing of the act, the party accused was labouring under such a defect of reason, from disease of the mind, as not to know the nature and quality of the act he was doing; or, if he did know it, that he did not know what he was doing was wrong"
Somebody doesn't have to be psychotic to be insane. Impaired reasoning is enough. That post-game interview didn't exactly suggest that he was thinking straight.
But, in any case, if the DRA requested a psychiatric report and didn't receive one, they aren't going to be able to make a judgment based on his mental illness.
Would a sane person shout about wanting to hurt someone in their face?
