    Just saw these stories on the Auroa shooter. Strange that the media isn't reporting it like they did the Newton killers info...

    Denver Post

    CBS

    I sent the links to Drudge as well.

    This quote from someone who's obviously "been there" is exactly why I say our mental health care system is broken...

    Well, the argument, at least back in the 70's was that people who didn't need to be treated as inpatients were hospitalized and given lobotomies and all....(remember "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"?)

    So, in an attempt to appease everyone, they let a LOT of people out of hospital that shouldn't have been and now don't hospitalize people that should be. This occurred BEFORE all this Obamacare and sequestering and all that stuff.

    As a direct result, we have homeless people who are mentally ill wandering the streets (not every homeless person is mentally ill)....

    It's a feel good society we live in, where we want to please everyone, hurt no one's feelings, everything is puppies and rainbows, unicorns exist and everyone is special in their own way....
