  1. Someone needs psychiatric evaluation . And it’s not the fence jumper. There’s a reason for that fence. It’s supposed to keep the inhabitants in. Unfortunately they have a helicopter and escape.

  2. I was trying to recall a single fence – jumper prior to the Obama administration and couldn’t. So yes, maybe it isn’t the fence jumper who should be evaluated.

  3. This guy is about to get punished way beyond the measure of his official one count charge. Psychiatric evaluation is what the Soviets did to some of their critics before locking them away.
