    It's utterly relevant to the comment to which I'm replying. Harding wasn't a 'certified psychopath' (whatever the hell that is). The quick dismissal of any other reason for this assault (spurned pass by a drunken lout? not at all unreasonable) is appalling. We've heard direct testimony from one person who wasn't there and too many here 'know' what happened. That's what's actually disgusting about the behaviour in this diary commentary.

      is it possible that he could not be found guilty of a hate crime because he couldn't do the mental math to get from point A to point B?

      Just askin, don't know much about how an insanity defense complicates hate crime prosecution.
