JO COX MURDER--From Benign Mental Illness to Psychopathic Killer--THOMAS MAIR


(10 NORTHUMBERLAND)--Followup on the case and a breakdown of statements made by suspect in newspaper, name unknown, and reported in Telegraph:

In the words of the suspect: (on getting a local volunteer gardener gig)--


"I can honestly say it has done me more good than all the psychotherapy and medication in the world. "Many people who suffer from mental illness are socially isolated and disconnected from society, feelings of worthlessness are also common mainly caused by long-term unemployment.
"All these problems are alleviated by doing voluntary work. Getting out of the house and meeting new people is a good thing, but more important in my view is doing physically demanding and useful labour."


"..honestly say.." indicating what, he is normally a pathological liar?  If that's the case, how can anybody believe the statement he made to the local newspaper in 2011?

What about the rest of the statement, the expert on those who suffer mental illness, without giving a description of  his particular case, generalization into the socially isolated category.

Jobless layabout hangs around til grandma dies, then scores a flat at FieldHead--

where he continues to be a jobless layabout and blames his 20 years of being a deadbeat as the reason for his anti-social behavior.

One excuse after another from what the neighbors describe as a "nice guy" who secretly builds a homemade gun then goes out and shoots and stabs a Member of Parliament to death in broad daylight.

"Britain First" had nothing to do with what went on in this deranged killer's mind while the execution was in progress. Just another excuse from an out-of-control lunatic who had every sign of going off the deep edge while his friends and relatives chose to ignore it and pampered and nurtured his so-called fragile mental state until it became impossible for him to carry it any further without committing some act of extremism.




(#10 Northumberland)--FOLLOWING REPORTS REVIEWED--

THE GUARDIAN--Police arrested a 52-year-old man, named locally as Thomas Mair, who was described as using an “old-fashioned” gun and a knife in the attack, shortly before 1pm. Eyewitnesses said Cox’s attacker approached her outside the public library in Birstall when she left her constituency surgery with her aides. In a tussle, he shot her up to three times and stabbed her repeatedly.

Two early lines of inquiry by the police are understood to focus on the suspect’s links to the far right and his mental health. In the hours after the killing, detectives searched Mair’s home for any evidence of extremist rightwing material, held physically or in digital form, as he was referenced on at least one extremist website.

TELEGRAPH--The man being held in connection with the death of MP Jo Cox has been named as Thomas Mair, who was described as a “loner” with a history of mental health problems who had previously subscribed to a far-right magazine.
Mair, 52, who was arrested by armed officers shortly after the attack, had spoken about receiving “psychotherapy and medication”, and was described by his younger brother as having “a history of mental illness”.
Despite being born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, a decade-old website posting identified Mair as a subscriber to S. A. Patriot, a South African magazine that was published by the pro-apartheid group, the White Rhino Club.

The Telegraph goes on to report the usual about how the neighbors say what a nice man the suspect is and also how they are "shocked", as usual.

A web inquiry shows little or no trace of the so-called "White Rhino Club".


There doesn't appear to be any followups on just what type of "mental illness" the suspect has and  his statements that were reported in the Telegraph do little to shed light on whatever it is. Now it appears, that whatever it was, the was a latent psychopath killer hidden under that rather benign shell of a man. Had he been capable of murder, and for how long?  How long was the plot in the offing? What drove him over the edge, to the point of no return? How on a crowded street in the middle of the day was he able to execute the crime, had he been stalking the MP or was it just a random spontaneous act?
