Dear Superintendent Walshe,
As you may already know, I happened by chance to meet Garda Thomas Kenny at my brother's business premises last Saturday afternoon (i.e. November 29th 2008), and I pointed out to him that (from my viewpoint) there are still a number of extremely serious medical, legal, and financial issues which remain completely unresolved in connection with the general subject of your letter to Mr Gerard Madden (Senior Social Worker) dated July 2nd 2008. (A scanned copy of the letter in question can be viewed at: )
After listening carefully to what I had to relate to him last Saturday, Garda Kenny suggested that I might usefully consider making an appointment to see you; and, in addition, he also very kindly offered to help me make such an arrangement.
However, and welcome though Garda Kenny's suggestion of last Saturday was, I felt I had to point out to him that I am suffering from C-PTSD (Complex-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder); and, that as consequence, I have developed an unwanted tendency to get extremely angry whenever I attempt to discuss the issues in question with anybody: including -- very unfortunately -- those who I believe are doing their best to try and help me, but who, for one reason or another, cannot (in practice) actually provide me with the help I need.
As you may not be aware of it, please note that "explosive anger" is a well known symptom (among medical doctors, psychologists, and social workers that is) of C-PTSD  -- as can easily be verified via links such as: for example.
The upshot of all this is that although I would like to meet you for the purpose of discussing my difficulties, I am concerned that any such meeting with you, at this particular stage, might prove disastrous for me: for reasons relating to the "explosive anger" business.
Although I have tried very hard, over a period of years, to get the medical treatment I need for the C-PTSD problem I suffer from, so far my efforts have not been successful. Please note that (for example) I have not received any reply from my letter to Dr Anne Jeffers dated November 20th 2008 (a copy of the text can be viewed at ).
All things considered, and provided of course that you are willing, I feel it would be best if you could first consider the difficulties inherent in my particular case, and then afterwards let me know if you believe you can help me in any significant way.
If, upon receipt of written notification from you that, having reviewed my case (using this e-mail), you were to inform me that you believe you can further help me in some significant way, I believe it would then be much safer for me to meet with you: because I am very strongly of the view that the risk of unwanted "outbursts of explosive anger" from me would be greatly reduced in such circumstances.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your earlier efforts relating to my case: the results of which have been hugely beneficial for me in certain respects.
Changing the subject, I would also like to take this opportunity to report that a fairly large and heavy safe (belonging to me) has been stolen from one of the upstairs bedrooms of the home of my brother (Mr Gerald Finnerty). Though the safe in question was concealed to a very considerable extent, my half-sister (Ms Marjorie Dolan) seems convinced that it was in my brother's home up to sometime around the middle of August of this year. Although I realised in mid-September this year that the safe had been stolen, I decided not to mention it to the Garda Siochana (up to now), and this was because I was concerned that doing so would almost certainly have resulted in another recurrence of the "explosive anger" problem referred to above.
I look forward to hearing from you as soon as you reasonably can please regarding the above request for a review of my case by you.
For future reference purposes, I will place a copy of this e-mail at the following address later today: 
Yours sincerely,
William Finnerty.

A triangle of thoughts
by Pythagoras Mon Dec 01, 2008 08:09
To what extent do "feelings of injustice" influence "culture" in human society, and why is it that human beings (and indeed some of the higher animals such as chimpanzees for example) have a very well developed and potent "sense of justice" genetically programmed into them while in the womb (and consequently not directly influenced by "local environment" conditions external to the womb)?
1) "Justice preoccupies child and philosopher alike. The importance of fairness is evident in the meticulous manner in which children demand that it be demonstrated in every detail."
2) "Injustice is unpalatable to all age groups. It confuses the child, angers the adolescent, appals the adult and outrages those who have seen its consequences too often. This is because they know the many human systems in which injustice may locate itself and 'justify' its lodging."
3) "Being the recipient of such an injustice is more than an emotion. It is excruciatingly visceral. It invades the human psyche with the most lancing cut. Depending on the severity of the injustice, life may ever after be divided mentally between the time before and after the unjust event."
