Words don't equal actions. He threatened, but they were empty threats anyways. HP is merely eccentric not crazy like Bella. Everything he has done after azkaban - or almost everything including cutting off elf's head - is acceptable in that society by the powers in charge, and the things that aren't acceptable well Hermione didn't know she was being mind raped so how is that OPENLY crazy? Btw my point was crouch wanting to arrest hp for the dark magic, and would have done so had not AD intervened, which AD wouldnt have done if he thought HP was crazy enough to be a threat to other students. Arguing with you is fun vincent. Have a kitkat and a thumbs up. back to relic: If this statement is true (and imo it isn't b/c ppl do all sorts of things out of necessity, fear, etc) then HP by definition isn't openly crazy because daphne has alligned with hp and follows him, as does davis and zabini. Im sure when he starts his recruitment campaign, with the proper advertising and public relations experts, he will have quite the cohort of troops Great point, agreed 100% The wizarding world is a bit backward and medieval, both in politics and in lower level details and traditions such as using quills.
