    ...Orban's attorney, James Blatt of Los Angeles, said the assault ran counter to a life spent protecting community and country....
    I wonder if any evidence was presented to that effect or if the uniform and badge were all that was expected to prove it.

    The only plausible explanation for the defendant's behavior, Blatt argued, was the potent effects of Zoloft, which sent Orban spiraling into an "unconscious" delirium. "At the time he was not aware, not aware of the torturous things he had done,'' Blatt told the jury.
    Seriously?

    ....uh....how can a person be unconscious and in a delirium at the same time?

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    I thought the side affects of Zoloft were suppressed sexual urges and lethargy. Seems to be the opposite of what he is claiming.

    Read the insert...

    Zoloft--like almost EVERY prescription psychotropic drug--can cause delusions, hallucinations, psychotic episodes, convulsions, and uncontrollable crying jags.

    Lot's of prescription meds can cause significant changes in the way one's brain processes information, especially when taken with other meds. In 2008 I was on a combination of five meds which, taken individually, wouldn't have caused any problems. Taken together, and I was saying things to friends and family that caused them to raise their eyebrows. Once off the meds, it raised my eyebrows, too.

    Not fun.

    On the other hand, despite the off-beat thoughts, none included harming anyone in any manner.
