Kansas City Homicide Crazy Talk

It seems like public radio is attempting to do a service with this sketchy report about the mental health issues confronting a murder suspect. This angle on the story is important given that white men commit more mass shootings than any other group but they always get a pass because of mental health issues as well.

Strangely, maybe the secret sauce here is maybe getting across the message that even head cases are culpable for their actions given that blaming everyone else (and society) doesn't seem to be helping . . . And wishing for "gun control" that's never gonna happen or make a dent on the massive American consumer armory is a bit delusional as well.

The Argument In Motion: Why Mental Illness Is Not A Simple Answer To Understanding Murder

Dairian Stanley's ex-girlfriend was warned before she met up with him that Sunday morning in September 2016. Stanley had been missing for two days, had been talking "crazy stuff" and threatening to kill himself, his mother told her. When the ex-girlfriend found him at a BP gas station on Van Brunt Boulevard, Stanley demanded to know who she had been with.

Who cares as long as Dairian Stanley gets the death penalty or never gets out of prison. Jean Petersucker Baker will probably fuck it up. Jean Petersucker Baker is the weakest prosecutor ever.

Of course "Mental Health Issues" play a factor in these killings!
ANYONE who kill another person except in self-defense or the defense of others is Mentally Ill! SO WHAT? Are they "competent"? SURE! They were competent enough to kill, weren't they?

But "you don't understand their background/circumstances/disadvantages"! That sort of horseshit is a direct slap in the face of every decent human being who came from EXACTLY the same background/circumstances/disadvantages, and is has no relevance at all!

Society has to protect itself from this sort of person. Are they "salvageable"? NO!

Another dummocrat doing what they do best......... murder people because they can’t have it their way

If everyone who has mental health issues or comes from a disadvantaged or abusive situation committed murder, the "he crazy" argument would hold more water.

And most of the perps know what they are doing, and they do it anyway.
