Crazy, I never took Johnny Storm for an anti-Semite. Even his best friend is Jewish!

Section 37 of The Mental Health Act - also called a ‘hospital order’, or colloquially, “sectioned”. It’s not a fixed-term sentence, you’re there until the doctors are happy. Section 37 only applies if you’ve been convicted of a crime that is punishable with imprisonment, but the court believes you have a mental disorder that’d benefit more from hospital than prison. It also qualifies you for free “aftercare” under section 117.

I guess the American version would be a successful “insanity plea”.

Fire Fly is grumbling that people should find their own gimmicks and not steal them off other peoples.

On one hand, I feel saddened that this guy has had such a poor start in life that he’s reached this pass.

On the other hand, “HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!”

An order under s.37, Mental Health Act 1983. A compulsory mental hospital admission. Used in circumstances where the offender has a mental health problem and treatment is seen as more appropriate than a prison sentence. Sometimes comes with a restriction order under s.41, which makes it harder to get released, when there’s a concern about public safety even after the mental health condition is treated.
