Default Andre Thomas undergoes evaulation after self-mutilation incident

Andre Thomas undergoes evaulation after self-mutilation incident
(Sherman-Denison Herald Democrat © 01/09/2009)
Andre Thomas' attorneys say he will now get the mental health treatment they have begged for since he arrived on Texas' Death Row in 2005. State authorities put Thomas in a prison psychiatric treatment unit after he pulled out his left eye and ate it on Dec. 9. This self-inflicted injury left Thomas blind since he had pulled out his right eye will awaiting trial in the Grayson County Jail in 2004

Insane?
Legally- -he is now blind, he can received disablement for life- -if he has no support, even in prison. I have seen this happen, not by personal information and I do not have any legal knowledge of how this was done.
Good lawyer and it was a done deal.
Gotta just love this sytem,ya know?

Be safe.

For the record- -I am NOT saying he is not insane, I am merely pointing out a view- -some of you have no idea what some inmates will do to "catch out" and be sent to a mental unit. Mental units have heat and air conditioning, and some, better food.
Hope this clears up a few things.

Be safe.
