Staged to give legitimacy to the anti-gun lobby and the unconstitutional anti-gun policies of our own government.

Yup.

a lot of this is due to the economy and cost cutting in mental health: less employees, less safe environments; less security...Add to that we have a sicker group of people who are now not in state psychiatric hospitals but are being “treated” in outpatient facillities with many patients being homeless.

...and with Obama care..this scene will only get worse..a LOT worse. congratulations to the Progressives!

‘See “Year of the shark” for an example’

Which was nipped right in the bud by Sept. 11.

Along with Chandra Levy-Gary Condit-mania.

The staff at this hospital already have their hands full with the poor patients who are there because of emotional problems. Imagine the chaos there now trying to keep the patients calm after seeing a gunman and police running around, shots fired, people and officer shot. I am sure tonight will be very difficult for all at the psych hospital. Prayers for everyone.

"I’d like to see the statistics of people who have benefited from psychiatry in a constructive way, not just medicated with prescription drugs."

Then you want to see statistics on psychological counseling, not psychiatry.

So that is the only way that psychiatry solves psychiatric problems?

It doesn’t sound like just one gunman to me.

From a news reporter on scene:

http://www.wpxi.com/videos/news/video-rick-earles-second-report-from-scene-of/vGT2Q/
“Yeah Peggy, [b]multiple police sources[/b] are now telling us this has turned into a [b]hostage situation[/b]. My sources are telling me—my police sources are telling me—that they have received three phone calls from people inside Western Psych claiming that they are now being held hostage by [b]two men with guns[/b]. ... But again, the very latest information is that this has now evolved into a hostage situation. .... We understand from our police sources that they have received three phone calls from people inside Western Psych claiming at this moment that they are being held hostage by two men armed with guns. ..... Now we are hearing the possibility that there may be [b]two to three shooters[/b] involved in this incident. ...Again we are getting all this information from our police sources. ... “

Anyone else find it a little odd that no shooter information has been made available yet?

It’s still going on?

To listen to the local news here, you would think it was all resolved and that the “lone” shooter was killed early on.

What are they not telling us?

2-3 shooters? An Islamic cell?

Did it just come on at 65 or were there signs before?

Signs that were missed, as she is a very talented artist, mostly painter, very creative and a bit eccentric.

That’s interesting - like using a certain part of the brain more deeply than most of us can and/or the other parts not enough. So things will be off balanced. Like super bright people can appear ‘off’ to us in social issues or something.

I never understood any of this but you are the one who brought light to it that I understand something about it. So thank you. I am sorry for you and your mom but I hope she’s doing well and she and others can enjoy her talents, again.

The medications work nicely and are the reason that we no longer have huge, sprawling insane asylums in this society. ...Yes. We now have merely a homeless problem and a violent crime rate that is similar to South Africa and the Congo.

In the heart of New York City and Philadelphia may come the closest approach, and even then “South Africa and the Congo” has all beat. Tell me in what US city it is customary for men with AIDS to rape infants in the mistaken belief that it will rid the former of AIDS?

Why are these incidents never perpatrated by “Gunwomen”.

They have been, just not as common.

Guess the shooter didn’t check the box on the form that asked if the buyer of the gun had ever had any mental problems.

Isn’t there a law against such things?

They will say it’s the NRAs fault and the easy availability of guns.

More BS from the anti-gunners.
