  •  I see a lot of "he MUST have been mentally ill" (0+ / 0-)

    comments.  How could someone without a serious illness do something so terrible?

    Sadly, I agree with this article.  I think a person is fully capable of being evil and cruel enough to do this without a mental illness.

    Even though I can't even begin to imagine the thought process that would lead someone to decide to kill their own mother and head to the local elementary school to murder dozens of children and teachers and then kill themselves, I don't believe it takes a mental illness to do it.

    Anger, evil, cruelty and hate are not mental illnesses.
