Doctor Says That Johnny Depp’s Behaviour Is Consistent With Perpetrators Of Intimate Partner Violence

Can this guy be believed?

The Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial is steamrollering into its final week and Amber Heard’s team today decided to call Dr David Spiegel to the stand – with varying results.

Dr Spiegel was a pretty weird character by all means – questioning whether Marlon Brando was alive when asked about his substance abuse and comparing it to Johnny Depp’s was probably a highlight – but one key part of the testimony regarded his analysis of Depp’s character. Spiegel claimed that Depp’s behaviour was in line with someone who would commit Intimate Partner Violence.

Here’s what he had to say whilst on the stand (first clip is the highlight, second clip shows a big chunk of it):

I’ve treated thousands of patients as a psychiatrist and physician, with 75% of those experiencing substance abuse.

I’ve also studied the effects of drugs and alcohol on the brain, and the causes and effects behind what’s known as intimate partner violence’ (IPV).

It’s a repetitive behaviour over a period of time, which includes physical, emotional, psychological and sexual abuse.

It’s more than just the act of abuse.

In my opinion – based on my review of the evidence, based on my clinical experience, based on my publishing experience, based on my teaching experience – Mr. Depp has behaviours that are consistent with both someone who has a substance use disorder as well as behaviours of someone who is a perpetrator of intimate partner violence.

We all get angry as people, we all think things about people. The difference is when our brains are in tact and acting well, most of us do not act them out.

Well that guy sounds like he has the qualifications to be talking about all this, but he comes across like a complete joker and weirdo so I’m not sure if anyone is going to actually believe him. Where is Amber Heard’s team dragging up all these people who are seemingly desperate to testify and act as strangely as possible in order to secure their five minutes of fame?

Again, whilst what he’s saying might have some semblance of truth/be useful for Heard in trying to influence the jury, he just comes across like a zany mad professor so I’m not sure if anyone is going to buy it. Guess we’ll see what happens in a week or so when it’s finally time for the jury to make their decisions on the case.
