Dr. Drew Looks at Insanity Plea due to Bipolar State

I recently saw this video clip of Dr. Drew discussing the Hemy Neuman insanity defense case in the murder of Rusty Sneiderman. The accused killer claims that he gunned down another man when in a manic bipolar state. I thought it was an interesting discussion and I appreciated how one advocate used this as an opportunity to educate the public that individuals with bipolar disorder are more likely to become victims of crimes than perpetrators and that there are wonderful treatments available for those suffering to maintain healthy lives. Also participating in the conversation was General Hospital star, Maurice Benard, who shared his experience with his manic bipolar state.

Check it out!
