Defense approached Woodcock again around the time of Dr. Reid's examination
Dr. Woodcock was asked to review the other doctor's work, was offered opportunity to interview gunman again
Dr Woodcock says gunman's family history of this disorder is very strong
King guides Dr Woodcock to video we saw earlier. Woodcock said "He was psychotic at that time"
"He was psychotic well before the time I saw him on July 24. That process had continued, but it became worse in November, necessitating the hospitalization."
"When I saw him, he was compensating in a lot of ways. He was suppressing emotions and using his considerable intellectual capacity to stay organized".. but by November, gunman was disorganized and much worse
Woodcock consulted with other doctors who conducted testing of the defendant
"he didn't refer to any being, power or god or devil or anything like that"
King asks if gunman felt "compelled or commanded to behave in certain ways?"
"He felt that his thoughts had power over him"
"Intelligence has nothing to do with it. this is a disease process"
"He had the delusion that killing people would protect him from himself".... "and he had this delusion that killing people would increase his own self-worth"
"His delusions were pushing him in that direction of acting out"
"The urge to resist treatment is wrapped up in some part of the delusional system"
@mandi: Yes, it is very different than the questioning style he used during cross-examinations, isn't it?!
King asks about gunman's need to keep shooting impersonal
"Very often there's a struggle that goes on between these different types of impulses"
