Man accused of molesting 2 children ordered to have psychiatric evaluation
This is very interesting. This man claims to have bipolar disorder and says that it makes him have "trouble understanding stuff". It is true that Bipolar Disorder can cause much confusion. This confusion, coupled with irritability and other symptoms of bipolar disorder, can cause a person to act out in a negative way, but it seems to me that this behavior is always defensive in nature, not aggressive. Sometimes the defensiveness can be violent, but the objective is always to defend ones self from the attack of another person -- rationally or not. Bipolar disorder is not, in other words, an excuse for molesting a child.
