So what does that mean for doctor patient privilege and confidentiality joining us now is Fox News legal analyst.
Our -- doll and defense attorney Joey Jackson in let's start with this reactive to.
Issues that we need to cover -- there's also a fan page on FaceBook devoted to this guy we'll get to that second.
But in terms of the doctor patient privilege Arthur which -- legally trumps which well keeping keeping the confidentiality that a doctor has to do legally or public safety if the doctor thinks that this person.

And he goes into a psychiatrist says Kimberly -- -- and that blew him away my understanding is like pages as -- his mouth shut about that.
Really -- -- for all our egos and to do it.
And since I got this plan look at these blueprints and I'm gonna go in -- -- want the back door and I I think in Port Charlotte a blow everyone away and I'm gonna do -- setting and edit the midnight show it.
Then he's got to go OK just stay right there are bigger and I want one of -- mature -- If you uses it wouldn't assume that he didn't spell it out quite to that degree to -- factors that we don't know.
And of course the mailing -- -- that was stick figures wasn't detected until after the -- but instead something jelly like you know sometimes I feel like I want to kill people.
What is a psychiatrist was to do with.
You know what -- in their reporting requirements that have to be followed -- dealing with people who could be demented now people who have mental health issues listen you know they need to be certainly evaluated and they need to be made.
The feel bad -- our people have ailments but.
If you're a psychiatrist and someone is taking and telling you about a credible threat are they gonna carry out something you have an obligation under the law to report that.
So that hopefully you could prevent it and I think what -- -- -- see here is an examination of that relationship.
Was he being treated how.
I don't think he's taken what did he say I don't really just saying I -- I wanna kill somebody gets -- -- -- -- I don't think it's enough however I believe these -- I wanna kill myself.
I think then that triggers a whole other.
Protocol where they do we need the doctor is -- -- obligation that haven't evaluated to protect.
Well -- -- and meanwhile just add the fact that we know that he was being treated by a psychiatrist has upset his attorneys here's a statement from that the government's disclosure of this confidential and privileged information.
Has placed mr.
Holmes is constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial by an impartial jury in serious.
Jeopardy -- that.
I mean you know certainly you have to reserve judgment until a trial takes place in this shouldn't be particularly if the judge has a gag order saying that you can't talk about -- everybody has to honor that -- Florida -- there are leaks it's not fair and it's not appropriate.
