Mr. McCann,

 Thank you for your response to my query to the Home Office and Minister Theresa May regarding the circumstance surrounding the incarceration of Mr. Stephen Clarke in a Belfast psychiatric unit.

 I am sorry that the responsibility for responding has reverted to you and I accept that clinical queries must be addressed by qualified individuals.

 The fundamental question, fundamental to democracy and sidestepped by Minister May, is twofold.

 If Mr. Clarke violated an ordinance or law, why was he not taken to court to address the alleged offense? Secondly, by what authority or law are the police tasked with delivering an individual directly to a psychiatric facility without the defendant being given the opportunity of being heard in court?

 It is not Mr. Clarke or his actions that are under question, it is the legality of the process,  thus your response is an exercise in dissembling the question and composing answers that, while related, are not central to the legality of Mr. Clarke's placement by police in a psychiatric unit.

 Why was Mr. Clarke not charged with an offense, heard in court and sentenced?

 Essentially, Mr. Clarke's protest was / is against exposure of his children to microwave radiation in the classroom. Where have the police, a judge, the Minister, civil servants, legal representatives or the medical establishment addressed the issue of wi-fi in the classroom?

 Please cite the legal precedent and specific laws giving police the authority to act as they have in this case.
