sarah.. i see no way he will ever be free again..no matter which way it all goes.. he will either be locked away in the mental heal;th system, or behind bars, if not on death row.. the only cvastch there is that most experts..psychologists and psychiatrists alike..will tell you that mental health diagnosis and treatment is not a science..more like an art..we know less about the human brain and mind, and the way it works, than we do about anything else.. doug
