To Whom it May Concern,
I am a pastor at a church that has a young man (14 years old) who has mutilated his face to look like the "Joker" in the recent Batman movie "Dark Knight." I am curious about why a young person would act out in such a way. Could you offer any helpful thoughts? Thank you and if you have any clarifying questions please let me know.

I'm not sure how to comment on someone sight unseen. What does the young man have to say about what he did? Is he under medical care at present or is there care that you can arrange for him?
