Metro- A man has been jailed after he repeatedly stood in front of cars, causing traffic jams, without saying a word.
David Hampson, 45, would stand in front of vehicles preventing them from moving. When he was arrested he didn’t say a word to police, court officials, prison staff or other inmates.
It’s the seventh time he’s been convicted since 2014 when he first committed the bizarre act.
He persisted in his behaviour in Swansea and was given orders banning him from obstructing traffic.
Hampson was released from prison in July last year, but immediately went into the road and, again, remained silent afterwards.
Psychiatrists assessed him and one said he may have schizophrenia while another said he was trying to draw attention to himself and his poor financial situation.
Hartson wasn’t represented in court and, because the psychiatrists couldn’t agree was given a 36-week jail term instead of a hospital order.
If self-loathing is in need of a spokesperson than they would be making a huge mistake not getting to David Hampson quickly. No face has ever needed to be the face of something quite like this face has needed to be the face of hatred. Schizophrenia my ass. This dude has one personality and let's just say it's not all that personable. In fact, it's only satisfied by making sure everyone else in the world just as miserable as he is. David Hampson wakes up pissed off and only derives a minute amount of joy from making people feel the same way he inherently does when he gets out of bed.
That's why he needs to be put behind bars forever. Not because the crime he is a repeat offender of is worthy of imprisonment, but because the only way his pursuit of happiness will ever end is if he is around people that can reciprocate his level of anger. The only places I can think of that would meet that criteria are prison and the DMV, and David Hampson doesn't have the looks for customer service. This is a win/win as far as I can tell. This dude will finally fit in somewhere, and society will no longer have to worry about human roadblocks. The only thing worse than sitting in traffic is not knowing why you're sitting in traffic, and that's why this mute needs to be sent to a place where he'll be praised for his introversion and self pity.
