    Default Michael Stone...Preformance artist?

    I just found out that Unionist hero Michael Stone claimed that his attack on Stormount was a piece of "preformance art" in court...Was this defense widely accepted in Unionism?

    No. The unionist/loyalist community think Stone's defence was hilarious.

    An utter lunatic. The only concern is what he'll do in 14 years when he's out. He's obviously very dangerous, but he's handicapped by being an utter moron. Hint to people planning an action in the future: Perform the action THEN start painting graffiti about it. Not the other way around.

    As to the OP, everyone thought he was a loon.

    British Citizen and Sharpcut considered him a hero as opposed to a loon.

    There is speculation that he did it deliberately to get back into jail because he has a terror of Republicans assasinating him (which wont happen because it would trigger a Loyalist response).

    Not sure if he was in fear of death or not (I personally don't think he was) but I'd agree with the theory that he was fully institutionalised, and couldn't adapt to living outside in the vastly different political and social environment when he was initially released. I do think he wanted to kill Adams and McGuinness, but a motivating factor was the chance to go back to an environment he knew.

    I know we've seen a lot of recidivists from the batch that were released from both sides, but I'm surprised we haven't heard about more people like Stone who just couldn't adjust.

    I dunno...I mean the vast majiority of "performance artists" are whack job attention seekers....I am one of them got his mate to shot him on video as "art"...Could it be rather than seriously trying to kill people he was just looking for attention? That would put him in the same catergory as most performance artists to me at least...
