So, tell me if I've got this straight, the panel has to sniff the poo and guess which part of the Isle of Wight it comes from?

Packham: "Sample 1 definitely contains pan-fried scallops - so I'll go for Bembridge. Sample 2 must be from Newport - smells like a KFC Bargain Bucket."

I think they should do it the other way round and send celebrities' poos to the Isle of Wight for people to examine: 'Now, which smiley - bleep is the Donald Trump and which the Gordon Brown?'

I'm just surprised that they're shipping the poos to Scotland from the Isle of Wight – aren't there any zoos in Scotland they can get poo from? What happens to all the animal excrement there - is it deep-fried and eaten?smiley - yuk

Sorry. This one is rather dark but it's been gnawing away at me.

I work in forensic mental health and I STILL have no idea what makes some people tick.

Warning, this story is not for you if you have a weak stomach.

in that text, vulnerable means with mental health problems?

I also wonder what makes people behave that way. I think it is a long process where empathy, resentment... mix in the minds of that people and they enjoy torture? It´s awful.

I think that they are deeply sick and need professional help. The professional diagnosis could serve to prevent somehow that kind of behaviours.

I´m missing a clinical report from experts that explain what is the process by which a man mistreats and even kills his partner and even his children to make suffer the woman. Some end killing themselves after the murderers.
This is always the same, it belongs to some kind of behavioural pattern that should be studied.

Any kind of violence must be studied deeply.

take this one. that study on violence should not include the role of some politicians and means of communication on the radicalization of this terrorist?

Dr Anthea - ah who needs to learn things... just google it!

I suspect vulnerable means some form of learning disability but it's hard to tell,
Sickening story smiley - sadfacesmiley - sadface

Vulnerable in this case probably means that Mr Prout had one or more of a number of factors going on. Mental illness such as schizophrenia perhaps, learning difficulty perhaps. He may have been a long term drug or alcohol user who's mental ability has become seriously impaired as a result. He will probably have been in decline for many years and it is likely that he was targeted because he was easy pray. The treatment that he received at the hands of these (word blocked by filter) had simply kept him on that path and unable to access or ask for help - even if he recognised that he needed it.
