I was furious to hear Brian Mitchell's father talk about his son. His statements that Brian should be given a break because he returned Elizabeth safe and unharmed were ludicrous. He stated that he had seen Elizabeth on TV and she looked unharmed.
In the first place, Brian did not return Elizabeth, and emotional scars do not show up just by seeing a person. Mr. Mitchell admitted that he had not been a good father. It's obvious by his twisted sense of right and wrong why Brian is so confused.
