Now that John Bandura has been found not criminally responsible for his attack on Bishop David Monroe, what will be his fate? Contrary to what some uninformed cynics say, he will not simply be set free to wreak havoc on the community. I predict he will eventually be released under stringent conditions — but only if authorities feel that his family is up to it. A similar tragedy took place in Quebec a few years ago when a man attacked a nun who was trying to help him at a halfway house. After much agonizing, he was released under what have been termed the strictest of conditions.
