Depraved people deserve prison. But this raises the question–and I do not intend to make light of this situation, it’s quite horrid–as to whether these sorts of drunk escapades occurred in antiquity? Is it possible that a drunk individual might have beat senseless passersby or friends, thinking they were a character out of Homer’s Iliad or one of crew of the Argo? Might someone have ever thought they were David, slaying Goliath, in an intoxicated stupor? Surely this sort of depravity can’t have just appeared within the last generation. I have to imagine this is a function of the human condition.
Marinkovic was arrested on July 28, after a witness called police to the Madison Court apartments parking lot to report a fight. Officers found Marinkovic standing over Shawn Delp, 30, who was unconscious and covered with blood.
Marinkovic told police that he was Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, and that he was on a mission to “kill all evil.” Officers noted that he appeared “highly intoxicated,” court records say.
