Oregon shooter Mentally ill?

Oregon. Sandy Hook. Columbine. Mental illness. Was the Oregon shooter mentally ill? It’s pretty much our collective knee-jerk reaction these days…Demonizing people with mental illnesses is now commonplace. The truth is these are the horrible acts of a few people who have fallen between the gaps in the mental health system. Let’s say 100 people per year are killed by people with untreated schizophrenia or whatever. That’s unimaginably sad. However, that statistic pales in contrast to the 14,827 who were murdered in the USA in total in 2012. Let’s see.. 14,827 minus 100 is still 14,727 people. Wise up! It is more often than not the mentally ill are the VICTIMS of violent crime, not the other way around. This is the 21st century, let’s move beyond the FOX News idiocy and knee jerk politics. STOP cuts to mental health funding and EVERYBODY WINS! You never know when you or somebody you love might need help with their mental health. Life is a fragile gift.
