Former Broadmoor patient Peter Johnson is back in a secure psychiatric unit after attacking a woman with a hammer in her garden.
The pensioner hit Amanda Higgs on the head twice and her husband Michael in the face before Mrs Higgs grabbed the weapon from him.
Pensioner..? Yes. Peter Johnson is 71
When approached by police he told them: "I need to speak to you about an incident. I've just hit two people over the head with a hammer."
But this time, they'll keep him behind secure walls, right?
On the recommendation of two psychiatrists, the judge also made a restriction order under which Johnson will be detained in a secure psychiatric unit 'without limit of time'.
Why do I not feel reassured?
It means they can release him whenever they like.
Why not release them into the psychiatrists' communities?
Wonder if it was a silver hammer.
"Wonder if it was a silver hammer"
