“I'm thinking you're being intentionally vague because you don't have any actual examples. You just dislike the guy.”

“Actually you are right. I hate getting into specifics about such things.
But I do have actual examples.
Take for example his early claims that he was "living" "on the beach" in San Diego when he wrote some of his songs for 10.
Well, that's baloney. He was living inland, he was living in an apartment, he was working as a night attendant at a gas station and was proud of the fact that he had been "promoted" to night manager. There was no shack on the beach for him to live in as he claimed.
It was all bogus.
Its just one of many many things he has said that are not valid.”
“Quite often, people assume that those with mental illness and/or psychosis can not use their executive function and therefore can't plan. That simply isn't true. Based on what I've read, he was "normal" and brilliant, and then like many young people, had a first break while at school. He knew something was wrong, and researched it to find out what was happening to him. His delusions or hallucinations were persecutory, and he felt threatened. That is classic Schizophrenia; that's why they call it a "thought disorder". He may not be insane now if he's on meds, but he was then. By no means do I condone his actions, and I do think he should be locked up for life because he's dangerous. I'm just saying that this kid is really sick.”
