He’s Naked Underneath His Clothes

Just read this news story over the AP.  Pretty hysterical, especially the ending quote from the prosecutor’s lawyer.

A city prosecutor was charged with indecency after a security camera caught him walking around naked in a government building after business hours.

Scott Blauvelt, 35, was arrested Monday and released from jail to await a hearing in Hamilton Municipal Court, where he usually works….

Dwyer said investigators don't know why Blauvelt, who was alone, wasn't wearing clothes. He faces two counts of indecency. The charge carries up to a month in jail and a $250 fine.

Blauvelt's lawyer, Michael Gmoser, said in a statement Tuesday that his client was seriously injured in a 2005 car accident, suffers from mental illness and is on medication for seizures.

“Scott Blauvelt is an American with a disability,” he said.

Inability to accept personal responsibility is a disease that afflicts many Americans. Symptoms usually flare up when afflicted people are caught doing something inappropriate and threatened with consequences for that.
