    Something is very fishy about what happened to Ian.

    R.I.P.

      Typical response of a US police... "He banged his head by himself"... We've seen how they treat people, throwing in cars like wild animals and very often intentionally banging them off of the car or concrete...
      And at the end they call for people who know suicidal people(indicating that he was already a suicidal person) to call for help. So much disrespect and typical of corrupt US police where they seem not to feel any kind of remorse lying and at the end to trash the person after killing or beating them.

        That report from the police sounds incredibly unlikely. From what I get, they are saying they arrested him on suspicion of attempted break-in, took him to a hospital and then sort-of forgot about him (that, or he learned to teleport) until he somehow ended up back at the attempted break-in's location, where they arrested him again, gave him several medical check-ups, let him go and shortly thereafter he committed suicide? That doesn't add up at all.
        My guess is that they either completely failed to recognise a psychotic episode and is attempting to cover that up or they did something completely different to what's stated in their report and are attempting to cover that up.

        Addendum: The audacity in twisting it into saying that it definitely wasn't a psychotic episode and they assessed him thoroughly and then adding that people should seek help is mind-blowing. Those two statements are completely incompatible and an insult to every reader's intelligence and also to people suffering actual mental issues.

          Some internet trolls make you sick. Just read the thread about renaming Debian which basically boils down to 'Let's brand him a white supremacist and try to eradicate all trace that he ever existed because he tweeted the word nigger. Oh and he's also sexist for using his trophy wife's name.'.

            The Egyptian Pharaohs did the same, scrubbing out history to suit their propaganda of the previous King. Who cares if he wanted racial protection. There are hordes of Black, Jewish, and Latino groups vouching for domination for example. Debian is what it is. Take it or leave it. Don't use your political stance to shut out other views or scrub history.

                Someone at the police station is definitely worried:
                The drunk weirdo they beat up turns out to be semi famous and people start asking questions.
                I hope we get a full story on this.

                    Murdock was harassed by aggressive police officers. This led to his mental breakdown. A police officer beat him.
