(Newser) – John McAfee is back in a Guatemalan immigration detention center, awaiting extradition to Belize, after medical tests showed he did not have a heart attack yesterday, but rather a nervous breakdown, reports CNN. Guatemalan officials turned down McAfee's bid for asylum, but his lawyers have filed a bid with the country's Supreme Court in a last-ditch effort to keep him from being returned to Belize, where he is wanted for questioning in the shooting death of his neighbor. "Due process has been violated. The right to defense has not been respected," said McAfee's lawyer.

A nervous breakdown is not a condition that can be diagnosed, there is no condition that is called a nervous breakdown..just an off the cuff remark to describe other nervous or psycholigical conditions. Probaby had a panic attack because he now realizes he can no longer manipulate reality...he's played all of his cards for the moment. Probaby has some crazy cells in his head from the bath salts... Hey how about using them for the right thing. Take a hot bath with plenty of bath salts in the water and you'll feel relaxed. And take that tampon out of your nose

"in ...a last-ditch effort to keep him from being returned to Belize, where he is wanted for questioning in the shooting death of his neighbor. "Due process has been violated. The right to defense has not been respected," said McAfee's lawyer. So what! Who gives a rat's behind? McAfee needs to return to Belize to answer their questions and locked in their prison system. Mr. Lawyer, he will get a fair trial and due process and all that. But he gots to go back to Belize and face the music there. Hey McAfee, Don't do the crime in Belize, if you cannot do the time in Belize. Just sayin'.
