    Inspired by "Judge Dredd: The Exo-Men" in progs 111/112 of 2000AD...

               Meet the scourge of law-abiding societies...

                            The Sympathiser!

   You don't dare ask if this guy is "some sort of bleeding-heart liberal"
   ... because he *is*! This punk doesn't care how many victims a criminal
   has murdered, tortured or abused; only that the agressor's rights are
   held to be more important than those of their victims. He believes that
   even demons can be rehabilitated; anyway, they had a tough childhood
   and their mothers probably didn't love them! Although unarmed, in
   the long term this creep is definitely more dangerous to society than
   all the terrorists, drug-dealers and armed robbers put together!!

         Get out your Lawgiver, er SSG, and sentence him to death :)

Description             : An unarmed but HIGHLY annoying NPC for all DOOM
                          variants, the Sympathiser is a pastiche of bearded
                          bleeding-heart liberals; from the instant that he
                          sees or hears any player, he continually whines
                          about the civil rights of demons from Hell! Heck,
                          their mothers didn't love them!
