You really don't understand mental illness, if that's how you simplify it.

It's got Steved's name on it, doesn't it?

I'm smart enough, and have been educated by those wise enough, to realize that I don't have the training to do so.

I published a paper on this very topic about 3 years ago. Agree with you.

Again, what has led her to believe that the presence or absence of state-sanctioned involuntary committal would have been meaningful to this case, or of other shootings?

This is an honest question, I'm curious about practical solutions and this has come up before with Gabby Giffords without a compelling connection being drawn, so hopefully it can happen here. Did people suspect the shooter was mentally ill, but were unable to do anything?

I think so...I think it's a parody thing. I hope, anyway.

And really, to all those who are doing the "devil's advocate" thing, maybe give it a rest today and just be honest and genuine with your comments for a change? Not really in the mood to play silly games.

The mind wanders when there are no setlist parties to post in.

It's too early to talk about this without knowing 1) his medical history or 2) his motive.

People make choices because one option benefits them over the other. At present, we don't know what those options were or what he was thinking. He may not have been thinking. We may not be able to apply logic to his situation at all.

No amount of training can help you diagnose this guy.

I can't diagnose him, but I can judge a child killer.

Some people are just evil. He made a choice to turn a gun on a scared, cowering innocent child and pull the trigger. And do it again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again.

Awesome. That doesn't solve the problem on any fundamental level beyond that one individual though, does it?
