Last week: MENTAL ILLNESS DEFENSE: The U.S. again watched in horror as another mass shooting was carried out. The defense attorney of the man charged in the crime is asking for a mental-health evaluation. When individuals do horrific things, this is often the first excuse. Many want to believe that no rational person would deliberately plan and carry out a mass killing, yet research shows that mental illness is often not the cause, though it might be present. Hatred and anger at this level may be hard to comprehend, but it’s time we accept that these acts are deliberate and we must stop them before they happen.
