That's a little harsh, I guess. I know first hand how brutal bi-polar can be--and Scott was not in Addis' league.
This is also reference in Rest in Peace, and Knowmad bumped Suicidal Tendencies. Not sure if this should be attached to one of the earlier Addis threads.

I always thought of prison as means of segregation, never as a solution. You know, "keeping the definitely dangerous people away from potentially dangerous people" kind of thing.

My condolences to his family and friends!
From the first time I heard about Paul (the morning after he arsoned the Man during my 1st burn) until now, I have wondered what motivated him to do what he does... It is a shame he was unable to find what he needed.
