Well, if one is harassed too much, one will snap - everything [and everyone] has its/one's limits. Similarly, one should not twist his words beyond breaking point. BTW, old Niccolo Machiavelli taught that people should be either coddled or exterminated, but that any middle course is pernicious and counterproductive [re: harassment].
That's assuming Ovad is an innocent detainee.
At any rate, there seems to be no middle ground on Ovad's extreme reaction.
