Thank you Valpal1. I was just guessing, based on what little I know of schizophrenia. Why didn’t the psychiatrist catch it? Or did he just go to “counselors”? So tragic. This might have all been averted with a proper diagnosis and meds, right?
No, it is extremely hard to diagnose correctly and even harder to treat because of their messed up brain chemistry and their disinclination to take meds which often have not nice side effects. Plus they frequently believe your purpose is to poison them.
Mostly, at first interview they seem depressed. You have to spend time with them over a period of time to realize that their physical and mental perceptions are uniquely crazy. They do not experience and percieve the physical world the same as the rest of us.
Oops, I forgot to mention that another student or professor with a concealed weopon might have stopped or reduced the final body count quite a bit.
Mental illness happens, since the courts won’t keep them locked up, people should be prepared to deal with them when they turn “rabid”.
