Now, everybody knows here that I am often likely to defend perpetrators by trying to `understand' them
but not in this case. I cannot believe that someone who knew that they'd hit someone, rang their sister five minutes later and told her, and hid the body, did not know the difference between right and wrong, or was incapable of making the decision to call the police.
That is not a case of mental illness taking over or anything else. That is a case of pure `jeez I hope I don't get caught'. Guilty, guilty, guilty. Unbelieveable.
Oh, and what's going on with the dopey sister? If my brother were mentally unstable and said something like that to me, you can be darn sure I would be asking questions to find out whether there was any truth to it or not.
