      Dozens of conflicting reports on the making of that movie; some say it was largely improvised dialogue using non-actors. Some go so far to say Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda created scenes ad hoc without any semblance of a screenplay while tripping. Admittedly some of the acting was unskilled at best, That diner scene with the teenage flirting girls  and the angry police and customers was raw, but hit a nerve nonetheless. "The man is at the window, the man is at the window", what a great line!!!

      Very sad indeed, loss of an innocent young life, also the grief for the whole family that a situation is a difficult one to understand. I truly don't know much about the control of people who have mental health problems, in this country. Only by the means of the tragic news like this, and other peoples say so. News reports and stories of the family's own self care of their mental ill family members, too the point some are in chains due to the arm they may inflict to themselves and others. (I don't know how true that is) I would have thought there would be some kind of hospital and professional care for the most severe ill. Or does there have too be a tragic incident for any actions.   This is certainly a tragic case, the police chief says the young man had mental health problems, and was on medication, that possibly he was suffering from schizophrenia, and a drug user. Possibly/more so, this young man and his family were in need of professional help and care. We are not doctors or the carers of this young man, also we don't know of the nature of the situation, we can only therefor only speculate of what maybe. One thing about this is, if the young man was a drug user, was this the cause of his problem and illness. Also had he been a danger to himself or others before the incident. Had he been taking his medication, were there observations or administrators, local care by doctors and regular checks on his welfare and needs, instruction on care and safety for the family. Again, also to look upon this in a view of a sceptical way, that too many that would not seem fitting because of the nature of the tragedy. But the truth is it's also possible that none of this is the case, starting with the doctor (if any) only like many hold the qualifications they paid for. Although someone had diagnosed the young cold brutal killer, the police say that the young man had mental health problems, and was on medication, (what medication was he on, was it regular, prescribed or even affordable). Police also think schizophrenia maybe the young mans illness and he was found to be in later reports to be a drug user. that opens another question of what drugs was he known to be illegally involved and participate (did he live near the cassava farm) if so the police were late burning the 730 marijuana plants. I would expect it more to be the widespread very popular drug Ice, crystal meth (methamphetamine). Although some authorities in the country do seem to be playing this down a little, due to the fact that the drug in question, is too expensive for most ordinary people. Somehow don't come across like that in the news story's. So the alternative, possible to be Yabba, otherwise known as the madness drug or Nazi speed. Methamphetamine and caffeine, being the two main substances, 20% of the tablet being of the potent meth, and could be available and affordable at the low price $1.50 per pill. Thailand have had their worries how to keep this drug and it's users under control, the overall plan to eradicate it all together, is still now a never ending battle since it's ban back in 1970.   I was reading the original news article to this tragic story - The young murder was a suspected drug user, and there, it quoted he had a neurological disorder. This kind of illness can be caused by many factors, malnutrition. I did notice the accused and the victim also looked certainly in this condition. Also drug use would take similar effects with weight loss. Such drugs as the common and widespread, easy availability of crystal meth or Yabba may give the user the desirable effects he or she may once have been seeking, but unsurprisingly, and quickly give way to the undesirable effects of the substance, examples of even used for short-term can elicit erratic and even violent behaviour when taken in large doses. Also in this case the authorities could be so right due to the substances, if the accused was to be on any drugs at all, that is apart from medication for his illness. But the fact is the component structure of the illegal drug, first the amphetamine can cause schizophrenia, and caffeine is known to promote anxiety bipolar disorder. The consistent use of crystal meth can result in severe anxiety, paranoid and insomnia. Additionally, thoughts of suicide (or even homicide) have been noted in some meth abusers. One thing more from the article, is the young man was chained at the ankle, this is what I had heard in stories about "mad people being chained". The question if he was on a length of chain how it looks in the photo, how did he obtain drugs? Quote from article above "After the act, the suspect did not flee" "he would have found it difficult being chained".  Or was he chained by the police?    Mental disorders comprise a broad range of problems, with different symptoms. However, they are generally characterized by some combination of abnormal thoughts, emotions, behaviour and relationships with others. Examples are schizophrenia, depression, intellectual disabilities and disorders due to drug abuse. Most of these disorders can be successfully treated. (World Health Organisation).

      ' 'Easy Rider Peter Fonda dead at 79: 'Please raise a glass to freedom' Taryn Ryder Yahoo Celebrity August 17, 2019 Peter Fonda, whose counterculture classic Easy Rider helped usher in the New Hollywood movement of the 1970s that paved the way for filmmakers from Martin Scorsese to Quentin Tarantino, has died after suffering respiratory failure due to lung cancer. Fonda, the son of screen legend Henry Fonda, younger brother of Jane Fonda and father of actress Bridget Fonda, was 79. The family confirmed the news of his death Friday in a statement to Yahoo Entertainment. “It is with deep sorrow that we share the news that Peter Fonda has passed away,” the family said, adding Fonda “passed away peacefully on Friday morning, Aug. 16 at 11:05am at his home in Los Angeles surrounded by family. The official cause of death was respiratory failure due to lung cancer. “In one of the saddest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy. “And, while we mourn the loss of this sweet and gracious man, we also wish for all to celebrate his indomitable spirit and love of life,” the statement concluded. “In honor of Peter, please raise a glass to freedom.” According to Jane Fonda, her brother “went out laughing.” “I am very sad,” she said in a statement. “He was my sweet-hearted baby brother. The talker of the family. I have had beautiful alone time with him these last days. He went out laughing.” Fonda was best known for his starring role 1969’s Easy Rider, which he co-wrote and produced, and which celebrated its 50th anniversary on July 14. The film, co-starring the late Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson, earned Fonda his first Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. In 1997, he was nominated for Best Actor for starring in Ulee's Gold. Born in New York City, Fonda began acting in the early '60s. He started to make a name for himself with 1966's The Wild Angels alongside Nancy Sinatra and Bruce Dern, but his big break came three years later with Easy Rider. He was inspired to write the film in 1967 in response to a speech by Jack Valenti, then the newly appointed head of the Motion Picture Association of America who was advocating for more family-friendly films. "And like a TV evangelist [Valenti] says, 'It's time we stopped making movies about sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll and more movies like Doctor Dolittle,' but he's looking right at me," said Fonda in a 2013 Role Recall interview with Yahoo Entertainment. Soon after the ever-rebellious Fonda began writing the story of two drug-fueled motorcyclists on an ultimately tragic cross-country odyssey. Fonda shared the screen only once with his famous father, in the 1979 western Wanda Nevada, which he also directed. "A fairy tale. A perfectly written fairy tale," he told Yahoo. "I was fortunate enough to cast my dad. And he came and played for one day with us. And it was really an amazing moment for me, to be able to work with my father, to direct him and act in a scene with him. Up until that moment, no matter the success of Easy Rider, and the tremendous success of Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, these were not films that my father would understand." "In 1978, I'm shooting in the Grand Canyon with my father, who's basically dying," Fonda continued. (Henry Fonda passed away in 1982 from heart disease at age 77.) "Any rate, it was fabulous. We had such a good time. He just did one day's work. And I was warning him he had to chew tobacco, so I had all this licorice ready for him to spit instead. I said 'I don't chew tobacco, and I don't want you chewing tobacco.' He said, 'Nope, I'm gonna do it!' You know, stubborn. And so he passed out at lunch!" Fonda added, "I got a letter, the fifth one I ever got from him, this fabulous letter. Basically it said, 'In my 41 years of making motion pictures, I have never seen a crew so devoted to a director, and you're a very good director, Son. And I love you very much.' The first time it had been put in writing, and there it was. Signed, 'Love, your dad.' It was just amazing." Fonda, whose other films include the original Westworld, the Nicolas Cage superhero film Ghost Rider and the remake of the western 3:10 to Yuma with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, leaves behind a family of his own. He shared two children with ex-wife Susan Brewer: actress Bridget Fonda, 55, and Justin Fonda, 53. He is also survived by his third wife, Margaret “Parky” DeVogelaere, whom he wed in 2011, sister Jane, 81, and half-sister Amy, 66.
