Search Jim Gordon on here. More than a few of our esteemed membership. I think they both ended up where they needed to be. Locked up.
Well, its been over 35 years, I think that's where the claim that 'he did his time' comes from. He did what he did at a time when schizo was not diagnosed much, let alone dealt with. Bipolar even less so.
Phil on the other hand threatened others with guns at frequent, regular intervals throughout his working life. We never read that of Jim Gordon.
I'd call these very different people and cases, and not really a double standard.
Either way, from what I've read Gordon will not stay on his meds and likely will never get out, and should not if that's the case.
