    Why not? Psychosis is not indicative of a loss of intelligence, it should rather be thought of as a vacation from reality/rationality.

    If you were deluded to the point that you truly believed you were the joker, what would be the more "rational" decision - staying in school or acting criminally?

    The guy may also have been studying psychology as a way to help himself, sort of a "I know I'm screwed up, want to understand, but don't want to get real help because it's of the paranoid variety" until the point that he lost connection with reality.

    I agree. He was definitely sedated @ that hearing.

    One thing I do not understand is how can he claim amnesia when he conveniently remembered to tell them " oh yea my apt is rigged to blow up"
