Mom: Bomb scare suspect suffers from bipolar disorder
Boston Herald ^ | April 16, 2014 | Laurel J. Sweet

Posted on 04/16/2014 6:25:18 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

The Wakefield man arrested near the finish line of the Boston Marathon last night "suffers from bipolar disorder" and "was off his meds" when he allegedly created panic on the one-year anniversary of the deadly terrorist bombing, his shaken mother told the Herald.

"It's very overwhelming right now," said Joie Edson, 59, of Wakefield, who plans to issue a statement on her family's behalf later today.

Kevin "Kayvon" Edson, 25, officially identified this morning by Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley's Office, is expected to be arraigned this morning in Boston

How could he leave a backpack at the finish line in that manner?

He was having a psychotic break. I’ve seen people in that condition. Totally irrational behavior one minute, get him on his meds and half an hour later, normal rational human being.

This dude walks right up to the finish line with a rice cooker in his back pack. Epic security fail.

Well, he's also a performance artist.

His friends are on all the blogs saying this was a piece of performance art and he shouldn't be punished for 'art'.

I apologize for all of the double posts. It turns out it’s not my mouse. I’ve tried others. It’s a tremor I’ve developed since my 12/11 accident. I’m working on the situation, folks.

He describes himself as a 'faggot.'

Here are a couple of his posts from last year about the real Boston Marathon bomber.

If you saw the video the guy is clearly out of his mind. I honestly think he’s not responsible for his actions. He needs a warm, safe place to live with a keeper.

“Kevin “Kayvon” Edson, 25,...”

Is he an aspiring rapper?

If he is organically unstable, that means he should not be outside a facility.

“This dude walks right up to the finish line with a rice cooker in his back pack. Epic security fail.”

As I said before, this was a jab in the eye of the police state. They won’t like it one bit.

1- He proved security is still a joke even though we gave up our privacy rights.

2- He wanted to see how far the morons would go after they imposed martial law last year over some cookers and fireworks.

It was no security fail. The dude was barefoot on the rainy pavement and was wearing a black body suit and a black veil. Security knows that bombers always wear shoes, suits and ties, so this dude certainly didn't warrant any attention.

He was once treated at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA, which is considered one of the nation's top psych facilities.

He was a student at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design at, or just prior to, this incident. His friends say this was a piece of performance art intended to draw attention to his name and his work, some of which appears on YouTube.

This may have been a manic act. If it is, then several of his friends (or one person having multiple accounts on different sites) have the same story about his purpose.

Bottom line: He needs to be put away. He’s a threat. With all of these people, they need a threat of punishment to stay on their meds.

It’s Apr 16th. Seven years ago, One of these nutbags killed 32 people a few hundred yards from where I work. I’m tired of dealing with these dangerous self-indulged lunatics.

After Geraldo exposed Willowbrook for the house of horrors it was, Liberals as always, overreacted and started changing the laws to keep people needing to be institutionalized, on the streets.

Those in institutions have “rights’ that say they can deny the meds they require to keep them under control. So you can imagine how this guy, outside an institution with clear issues, was encouraged to ‘express himself’ by the psychs and caseworkers he likely has.

My layman’s diagnosis: The guy has serious mental problems AND he’s a performance artist.

Bipolar! Off his meds! That boy will never have to work a day in his life! Get him on public assistance and social security!

You would be surprise how many people here are “bipolar” and have never had a job! I’m talking whole families with kids up to thirty years old living at home! They are all drawing tons of assistance checks paid by YOU!

Ya, that’s what I thought too.

So his excuse is that he’s bipolar and was off his meds for unknown reasons. But we can’t say anything because he’s bipolar???

Really???

From the Boston Globe:

"I knew what I was doing, it was being conceived in my head. It’s symbolism,’’ Edson allegedly told police after being informed of his Miranda rights. “The performance got the best of me.’’

. . .

Police said today that when Edson was arrested around 7 p.m. Tuesday his face was painted blue and yellow. Some videos of Edson taken Tuesday night show him wearing an outfit and veil.

The clothing appeared similar to what he wore on a YouTube video called “Purgatory Vacation.’’

The video, which was linked to Edson’s website, was shot as if it took place in a padded room and opened with a character wearing a straitjacket. At one point, the character says, “I don’t know when my mind went awry.’’

That's the video I linked above.

Edson’s family issued a statement saying he had “multiple mental health issues,’’ including a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. The statement appeared to come from Edson’s mother, Joie, who said that she and her daughter had themselves run the Marathon six times for charity.

Everybody is special and are victims because they have a disorder therefore you can’t say a word about them.
