When the race card just isn't good enough.
Read the newspapers from this side of the world. When people get in trouble, here, they cannot play the race card like they can elsewhere so they play the mentally ill card. I'm pretty sure that I've commented before on this. Something about how there are a lot of mentally ill people...
A Saudi student who got in a lot of trouble in the States is being deported. The 21-year-old was arrested "on charges of assault, stealing and smashing two cars and assaulting arresting officers." Don't bother taking responsibility for your actions. Just claim to be mentally ill.
Here is another example. Actually its a twofer. The "mentally ill" card is played along with the "guess the nationality" game. Someone pushed an old man into the street and laughed about it. Yep. Funny. Very funny.
There must be an awful lot of it going around... Meet Dumbass. Geez. I bet this guy's mother is sooo proud of him.
Wonder what his excuse is going to be. He can't get away with the race card. And the mentally ill card would be too obvious. Saw it at JammieWearingFool's place, first.
Something is terribly wrong with this picture. The fact that a "green card" is only a click away and that it is free. Sure. It is just an advertisement. Still...
