No disagreement from me.

The boy had been playing a video game with his parents nearby, Smith said.
Police arrived shortly after the boy's father and a witness captured the attacker...
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.
64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
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.

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.
Disgusting. I'm surprised that this scumbag didnt' get the beating of his life.
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.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
