Thanks for pointing the poison well fallacy

I think there needs to be more accountability in the liberty community for logical fallacies. I see them often (especially 'appealing to nature' on the health forums).

But you had a fallacy yourself. I saw the courtroom video and I agree with others that he was not alert and possibly intoxicated, but that does not give any indication of his state of mind during the incident. It is legal for authorities to drug uncooperative inmates in custody. He looked to me like he was high on a benzodiazepine and sleep deprived (which wouldn't be surprising in this circumstance). Being sedated in court does not mean he was sedated before his arrest.
