I suspect this young man has a severe mental illness. The mental health gurus decided about 20 years ago that institutionalizing sufferers of mental illness is not a solution.

Young men,in this age group, suffer most. They don’t like the meds because the meds result in a numbness that is uncomfortable. So they don’t take them. What they think is real to them and they act on it.

Wish someone would study the correlation between these mass murders and mental health treatment.

It isn’t firearms. It is untreated mental health problems.

If you can be in an institution for weeks for a broken hip, why doesn’t it stand to reason that institutionalization for severe mental health problem an option?

Damn right.

But there's nothing politically useful in this conclusion.

So what would you do? Just lock everyone up that someone accuses of having mental illness. Isn’t that how Hitler and Stalin were successful?

Evil is the only explanation. I’m not a particularly religious man, but there is no legitimate psychological explanation for this.

Thoughts and prayers for CT.

But, why would the gov help them? They are useless to the gov. - they can't vote and expensive. Euthanasia is the next step.

Someone posted his Twitter feed. He sounded crazy/unbalanced/depressed.
