Who cares about the perp being a schizo?
Colorado has the death penalty, kill him.
Yeah its called Occupy Syndrome. BlackBloc specifically.
Wasn’t crazy enough to get himself killed.
So, shoot him twice, one for each personality.
Of course he does! Why, as he was attending OWS rally’s in his Blac Bloc outfit, he assumed that he was at a Tea Party function. Easy mistake.
Amen! Crazy / smazy, who cares? Kill him!
You always come through, dfwgator. Well said as usual.
Man, you’re too much sometimes. LOL
You're telling us it's not his fault?
Then, who's fault is it?
Oh, I know!
IT'S BUSH'S FAULT!!
(Yes, someone actually said that already...)
What bothers me immensely is not the reaction to the psychopaths who suddenly start firing on random citizens, it's the lack of outrage at the murderous gangs who torture their victims to death,sometimes in front of other victims. Some of the stories are too horrific to repeat.
Im going to take a wild guess and say that he was probably a habitual marijuana user. Habitual use can increase the Chan es of schizzo by 300%.
"You get over to the Justice Department and tell Holder
to make sure the FBI keeps that shooter from talking.
Supposedly the guy can't remember anything at all but
we are too close to the election to take any chances."
There is snappy repartee and then sometimes somebody exceeds even that. Your comment does exactly that. Hat tip.
Perhaps the worse punishment is to heal him, if possible, and then have to live year after year with the realization of what he did.
Schizophrenia is a horrible sickness. I know it well.
Holmes neighbor knows the shooter and said he just saw him and had a drink with him the other day. He thought he was still in school and was just another typical student. He never mentioned him being schizo
Thanks for telling the truth, although you will get flamed for it.
We’re already hearing cries about tighter gun laws. The common thread running through last night’s massacre, Arizona, Columbine, and many other such incidents are the deranged minds of the shooters. Yet mental health assessment and intervention is so very hard to get in this country.
We don’t understand it, we don’t want to talk about it, and some people don’t even acknowledge that mental illness exists.
They are those who have never encountered it.
For those of us who have, we know that getting help for someone who adamantly refuses to acknowledge a problem is nigh impossible. Keeping a schizophrenic or violent bipolar patient on meds is also very hard, because they feel better and stronger and on top of their world unmedicated.
Treatment facilities can keep them only until they’re medicated enough to no longer be considered a threat. Then they’re released, go off the meds, and it starts all over again.
Flame away. I just told a truth that needs to be a national discussion. These kinds of tragedies can be avoided, if this guy was, indeed, mentally ill.
Maybe he isn’t ill, just evil. Remains to be seen. However, if he was, betcha his family knew it and were powerless to intervene.
