Law and Order: Deb Frisch Unit

Breaking news from Teh Daily Squeak: Our old friend and former UO psychology professor Deb Frisch is facing felony charges of physical harassment and illegal use of mace/pepper spray/taser. (The charge is a catch-all, so I can’t say for certain which one.)

The inimitable Ms. Frisch has wisely rejected a settlement offer from the DA and decided to take the matter to trial, where I’m sure she will be found certifiably Not Crazy by a jury of her peers.

To catch up on all the Frisch fun, check out the archive. There’s also the Deb Frisch comic, which is one of the best things the Commentator has ever run in its 25 year history. If you want the history of the long, sordid affair, also look at the Deb Frisch Timeline.

    Oh damn, I’d forgotten that the Deb comic thread turned into some kind of bible-thumper bullshit session. Damn, that was unfortunate.

  2. Betz says:

    You’d think, in a normal, sane person … that after the first or even SECOND time that they got hit with any sort of accusation of slander or harassment that carried any kind of legal or authoritative weight, that they would stop doing what they were doing.

    I’m just having a hard time understanding the mindset of this person. She has been contently served with harassment and slander lawsuits, has been in and out of court on multiple occasions, have been on probation several times, un-employed for 30 months … and yet she still feels so strongly that she is both 1) right in her opinion; and 2) Sees no wrong-doing on her part.

    How is this possible? It really hurts my brain trying to understand it.

  3. Scott says:

    I’m going to disagree with your assessment Betz.

    I’d say that the time-line is like a train wreck that’s already happen. Now, it’s in the clean-up process and you think, “There can’t be any more bodies, right?”

    But no, there are a ton more bodies and it just gets worse and worse the more they find.

  4. Betz says:

    Ugh … that time-line is sickening. Its like watching a slow-motion train wreck on looped-repeat.

  5. Andy Cox says:

    I love the timeline link. If you have wondered what a descent into madness is like, just read that. Priceless

    Glad to see the OC on Frisch’s case again!

    Perhaps some photos can be taken of her upcoming “date with destiny” (since nobody else seems to want a date with her); the very amusing title of this post might be good for another comic, as well.
