    mentally ill people have enough problems without being conflated with mass murderers

    this guy was evil, period

    i wish he hadn't killed himself so he could be put on trial and sentenced to death and struggle for years to get it appealed only to be walked into a room to die

    but maybe that's just the rage talking

    so long and thanks for all the fish

      the mentally ill. Most mentally ill people are not homicidal, in fact, often the opposite where we worry about them becoming suicidal.

      But a person can be a sociopath and or full of rage and acting out on his rage. We need to teach people ways to cope other than acting out on their emotions and acting with such rage and hate.
