    There should have been no need to call the police, just the coroner...IMHO

    I was restraining him and he fell on his knife. 37 times.

    My goodness. What is the world coming to? 23 year old just walks up and starts stabbing an 8 year old for no reason! I agree with Ret. Just call the coroner. Father would have been justified.

    Probably the perpetrator is schizophrenic and genuinely thought he was stabbing the devil. Sad. There are no appropriate words for something like this.

    Having been an employment consultant for people with disabilities I can certainly see this as a possibility. I had a few clients who had to have meds or they were dangerous. But IMO there would not be any time to ask for a medical history, he would be gone.

    You can't possibly be making some kind of excuse for this can you? That guy needed to be DRT.

    If I'm not mistaken, we didn't have these "meds" 100 years ago, and I really doubt if this sort of thing happened. I don't buy that argument for 1 second.

    I wasn't around 100 years back but I sure was around and old enough to hear stuff 60 years back. This kind of thing happened, just as it does today, and back then there were NO MEDS.

    What was different, and it was different until the late 1960s, is that the truly ill (and some mistakenly called ill) got put into asylums where they were not able to cause harm.

    I worked at one circa 1965-1966 and it was not a pretty or nice place. It was effectively a jail masquerading as a hospital.
    I was required to keep my keys fastened to a leather belt by a strong rope so they couldn't be taken from me. When I went to the rest room, I had to use a special key to enter, and then place that key in the lock from the other side of the door so no one could break in. You would see dozens of men and women walking to work stations in a zombie like state.

    I wandered into a floor for adolescents one evening and can not begin to describe the horror and horrid conditions I stumbled on. (The circuit breaker box was in that wing and I needed to get in there.)

    There are no easy answers but neither the old way nor our present way work really well. And our jails end up being the de-facto hospitals. That serves no one. And it doesn't keep our streets safe.

    Show me where the article said anything about on or off medication, schitzo or not. The guy needed some good old fashion, quickly administered street justice. Stop trying to make up a lame excuse.
