Response to


Thank you, Iain Mullen, for your analysis of the case. My concern is that a mentally ill woman has not or will not receive the help she needs. The facilities for mentally ill offenders in this country are woefully inadequate.

A similar situation occurred on Usenet a few years ago. The 'Cyberstalker' in this case was from the US - Madison County, Wisconsin. IIRC the authorities were quick to act and forced him to accept treatment. Again, IIRC, he was suffering from a personality disorder. Ironic that the US criminal justice system, much derided in the UK, seems to be so much more enlightened than our own when dealing with these cases.
