#Brittius says Emotionally Disturbed Person (EDP) Sounds more like extreme frustration, and the subject opted for Suicide By Cop. Not uncommon.

Ambulance Chasers (lawyers) will probably run to the next of kin or anyone with relationship to the deceased, for civil litigation purposes, because the death certificate reads “homicide”. I never read a death certificate that read, “died of Nothing”. I never read any death certificate that listed cause of death as, “Messed up life and poor decisions”.

At age 55, the subject was not eligible for social security pension, therefore I suspect it was social security disability, and wonder what, if so, was, the disability? Mental? Too much…

There is a full review of Sir Mark Hedley’s book The Modern Judge on Pink Tape, where Lucy Reed explains how the book mysteriously appeared in her hotel room the morning after the Family Law Awards. (Lucy speculates that Sir Mark Hedley donned his robes and snuck it into her room, it is not for me to comment – I bought my copy.)  Lucy gives a full review of the book. Here I have a much more limited task:  I concentrate upon one aspect of the text – how judges find facts.

What is the purpose of a trial or enquiry? Surely it is to get to the truth: that is why we have them”
