So basically another Muslim who broke the rules by leaving one safe country and coming here. Yet another case of this guy being in the country without authorities knowing that he was here. This is bloody disgraceful and why was a year knocked off his sentence?
The Irish times didn't seem to give much information on him. Where does it tell anything about his past history?

The defence about how he was pointing an (unloaded) gun at traffic from a bridge over the M50 is kind of weird.
The defence as I understand is that he had no family support here in Ireland?
Is that a veiled appeal for the judge to instruct the immigration bureau to take in his relatives?

Garda Sheridan agreed with Mark Lynam BL, defending, that Mazur came to Ireland four years ago and it was unclear if he came here with family or alone. Garda Sheridan said Mazur did not appear to have anyone around him.
Mr Lynam said Mazur was originally from Holland and he did not have a great deal of information on the young man.
Send him back to Holland, and let the Dutch deal with him.
Isn't that the whole point of the Dublin Regulation?

She sentenced Mazur to 3½ years in prison with the final 12 months suspended. She said she had ordered the reports to ensure that Mazur’s needs were met upon his eventual release from prison but also to determine the risk he may present to the community.
It will cost us even more money to put him up in a prison than giving him his own personal suite in a DP centre.
What this guy "needs" is a one way ticket out of the country.

I've seen similar BB guns for sale in novelty/joke shops round the back of the Jervis St. shopping centre in Dublin city centre.
The guy does not seem to have committed any major crime yet, but he is ripe for recruitment as a foot soldier to some drugs gang.
And prison is exactly the place where he will be recruited and indoctrinated into some such gang.

The various lawyers involved seem to have earned a huge amount of money for themselves arguing about whether this childkiller officially had schizophrenia at the time of the crime, or developed it some time afterwards.

Either way it does not seem to have made much difference. If he had been found insane by the original court, he would have been sent to the mental asylum instead of being sent to prison. But he ended up in the asylum anyway.

Now that this extremely expensive legal process has quoshed his conviction, he will be considered an innocent man, and unleashed back out onto society. The doctors will give him a supply of schizo medicine, and say he is grand. That frees up some space in the CMH which is what they want (and probably need desperately)
The childkiller might even go after a big compo payout for his wrongful conviction. No doubt the free legal aid lawyer has already discussed that aspect of things with him.

For me though, the most telling quote is from senior staff at the CMH...
On a second admission to the CMH in September 2005, a senior medic was of the view that there was more clinical evidence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than of any psychotic psychiatric disorder.
Who knows what this guy saw, or did, back in Somalia.
Who knows how many people he killed, or saw killed. Only he knows.
He obviously will never be capable of living a normal life in a normal western society. What to us is "normal" anyway.

Coming to Ireland has done him no good at all, and it has ruined the lives of many in Ireland. When he gets out on the streets again, there is the possibility that more lives will be ruined.

Why do we as a society, do this to ourselves? Its like some kind of sado-masochism.
He should never have left Somalia.
