Intermittent Explosive Disorder

Oh yeah, the psyciatric idiots are hard at work in Australia:

The court heard she was allegedly sexually abused as a child, had been assessed as retarded and suffering from intermittent explosive disorder.

This is one stupid little story. This seriously troubled girl has, since age 8, accomplished the following:

She was just eight the first time she threatened her mother with a knife. She had also similarly threatened her foster carer, attacked a teacher and stabbed a fellow student. Since she was sent to Yasmar {Juvenile Detention center} at 16, she has assaulted her solicitor, doctor, psychiatrist and two teachers, one of whom was attacked with a leather working tool in July 1999.

Well the wonderfully politically correct idiots at the JD center then put her into a COOKING class – with knives. And she then ups and stabs her cooking teacher to death. Shocking result, eh?

So now the girl who committed the murder is suing the state for “allowing her access to knives”. We really do seem to need to experience some sort of major catastrophe and restart civilization.

But isn’t the diagnosis of intermittent explosive disorder a great euphemism for “murderous rage”? Sounds like something you will be hearing a lot of in the future.

“Yes, officer I got drunk and sliced my wife up with a knife, but I have intermittent explosive disorder so send me to the funny farm for 2 weeks so I can get better”.
