Is Aventura bomber mentally ill?

From Paula McMahon:
The bond hearing for a Hollywood man accused of planning to bomb an Aventura synagogue has been postponed to Tuesday.
James Gonzalo Medina, 40, is accused of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction — a dummy bomb he received from a man who was working under cover with the FBI. If convicted, he could face life in federal prison.
Gladys Jaramillo, 38, told the Sun Sentinel in a phone interview that Medina is her cousin and that he has suffered from serious mental health problems since he suffered head injuries and was in a coma following a serious car accident some years ago.
"He used to be a normal person but he had a big accident and we thought he was going to die," said Jaramillo, who said she is a teacher and lives in the Bronx. "He has had mental problems since he got in that accident."

David, what in the he'll does the first comment have to do with the question of the guys mental illness? It is just a hateful bigoted post knocking a religion. Don't demean you blog by posting that's crap. Should I start quoting the old testament and discuss how the Jews dealt with the phylistines?
