The criminal revolving door has got nothing on the mentally ill revolving door. It flings them back out on an unsuspecting public at machine gun velocity.

True. At least in my State, emergency involuntary commitment only lasts for 72 hours. Then the by-now angry mental case gets released. He can then go after the family member(s) who put him in there in the first place. He doesn't view them as doing him any favors.

Scott Roeder, the 51-year-old Kansas man who authorities have detained as the only suspect in the shooting of late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller, may have suffered from mental illness.

Nah, ya think?

Nice. I seriously wonder what the family and coworkers of Tiller would say to this pic. For that matter what any proabortion person would say. No doubt they have their answer but as a matter of clinical interest I would like to hear it.

Oh, I doubt they even do devolve.

If it makes some liberals who lurk here rethink about a man who killed SIXTY THOUSAND babies, then it did its job.

[Nice.]

I mean no disrespect for his family, but that same family probably condoned what he was doing.

Sometimes a picture can get the ‘thought’ across better than words.

It would be nice if it made even one person ‘reconsider’!

Not the person who posted to me. He is a psychologist so it is natural to analyze how things affect people.

I have not read through one thread today, just replying to pings, lol.

I didn’t notice it devolve. Remember that email that went around that just has a few letters of each word and we are easily able to read through the paragraph?

Our brains are familiar with a word so we often see it without noticing a misplaced letter.

“No, the past tense seems to refer to the mental illness. Just because someone was mentally ill a decade ago does not mean they still are.”

What would be, in your professional view, an example of a mental illness that is fully treated and cured, so that person would no longer be considered mentally ill?

I’m not a psychiatrist, so I wouldn’t pretend to know; however, I believe there are a few mental conditions that, while not cured, are completely non-symptomatic with proper medication. But from what I’ve read, Roeder seems extremely delusional and I believe that is generally indicative of more serious problems.

WHO are you talking about? I haven’t seen any of their middle names. Tiller is dead, do you mean Roeder?

Being mentally ill DOES NOT mean a person is legally insane.

That is true, but it will make first degree murder very hard to prove and maybe even second degree murder. Might only be able to get a voluntary manslaughter conviction out of the killing.

Screw this “mental illness” crap. Murderers don’t deserve to go to a cushy hospital; they deserve to go to a watch-your-cornhole prison.

The problem is that Kansas has ridiculously strict restrictions on the death penalty. So no “you will feel a slight stick in the arm for a moment, followed by a burning sensation over your whole body that will last for all eternity” in this case.

The only references I find relating to this quote are Catholic relating to Apocrypha. ???
