Has Ravi apologised for abusing and hurting a grieving mum?

(Or Why a Mandatory Treatment Order is the least bad option for M Ravi and society)

I reported here (M Ravi apologises for assaults after pleading guilty) that M Ravi is to be assessed  by an Institute of Mental Health (IMH) psychiatrist as to his suitability for a Mandatory Treatment Order (MTO), after he pleaded guilty to several charges.

A TRE reader pointed out

nathan:

If the Mandatory Treatment Order comes to pass then Ravi can be detained in the IMH indefinetly at the mercy of psychiatry review after psychiatry reviews stretching for years until the panel of IMH doctors all agrees that Ravi is ready for release for outpatient treatment. I am sure Ravi is aware of the implication and will resist it best as he can in Court. The MOT is more feared than a normal jail sentence for those familiar with our criminal justice system.

Put it this way, this sounds unfair and really convenient for the PAPpies but consider what Ravi did when he was sick because he refused to take his medicine regularly.


But don’t be too harsh on him for trying to avoid taking his medicine

Common side effects of these medicines include:
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
  • Trembling.
  • Increased thirst and increased need to urinate.
  • Weight gain in the first few months of use.
  • Drowsiness.

M Ravi out on bail, resting

Recently, Jovolan Wham was charged among other things for organising a vigil the night and morning before the hanging of Praba. This reminded me of Ravi’s abusive aqnd hurtful behaviour towards Prabai’s mother during that unfortunate time for her and her family. Fortunately our men in blue intervened.

His many cybernut FB fans were delighted that their hero M Ravi behaved like one of them at the vigil:

At about 5:30am, Ravi, who was accompanied by George — his ardent supporter— appeared at the vigil to berate everyone there. Most of the people he confronted tried to bring him away from the grieving family by engaging him and walking away from the vigil.

After some time, he approached Mdm Eswari and told her in Tamil that “she was responsible for her son’s death as she heeded the advice of Mr Choo and the anti-death penalty activists in Singapore.” When those present confronted Ravi to take him away from the family, he held on to Mdm Eswari, insisting that she was his client. He started spewing Tamil vulgarities at the top of his voice to those who argued that he should leave the mother alone and settle whatever problems he had away from the family. He even shouted at George when he tried to restrain him. Ravi was also seen berating journalist and anti-death penalty activist, Kirsten Han.

After being separated from the family, he then proceeded to throw soya bean at a volunteer cameraman after asking him to film the scene. It was around this time that all the plainclothes policemen who were observing the vigil stepped in and restrained Ravi. They managed to keep Ravi far away from the vigil for the rest of the night. For their professionalism and sensitivity, due credit must be given.

Thankfully, at least as far as Praba’s family was concerned, that was the last they saw of Ravi. He continued his rants online.

They must be really proud of him, causing unnecessary pain and suffering to a grieving mother and her family.

They will be even prouder of his abusive behaviour earlier in the day (read article).

Whatever, I’ve been told that he has not apologised to the lady and the family even though he has apologised publicly for assaulting two lawyers. But then he was charged and pleaded guilty to the assaults on the lawyers and may be hoping for a lighter sentence, and the avoidance a of MTO. Praba’s mum and family never made a complaint to the police.

When Ravi’s lawyer said in mitigation that he wasn’t the kind of guy who went round assaulting people, I laughed. He’s worse: he goes round abusing and hurting a grieving mum. And then doesn’t apologise when he comes to his senses.

He may be bi-polar. But he has admitted publicly that he had refused to take his medicine regularly. I know of a lady who is bi-polar. She keeps bi-polarism at bay because she takes her medicine regularly even though the medicine result in her feeling physically ill. She has written about her struggles.

If M Ravi cannot willingly take his medicine regularly, then sadly an MTO is in order both for his own good and the public good, even if the PAPpies benefit by having a human rights warrior narginalised.
