Earlier this week my Son recieved a text explaining a random act of violence against his long time school mate. She was standing at a bus stop at a university in Ohio. A man who she did not know came running down the sidewalk yelling with a knife and made a swipe and caught her in the stomach. She may be released from the hospital today. This guy has a prior of atacking a Police Officer and was sent off to a mental hospital. To find out he was a student stuns me after learning about his history. Many say acts of violence are not worse than any in other periods in history just the coverage of it is better. I do not agree. I would hate to think this guy will eventually get set out into the public again.

Its sad but alot of the people that make the rules believe that although you may be dangerous, if its not your fault you get a pass. To me if his history is violent even after treatment his mental capacity is all the more reason to lock him up. He is a danger to society.

He ran up yelling? Sounds like it was time to 'beat feet' at that point.

Im sorry to here about your son's friend, and hope she is going to be ok, but It's sad to say that most people live in the white and dont beleve that bad things will ever happen to them, so when it hits the fan thay dont know how to react.
People with mental illness and have a tendancy towards violance should be considered a greater threat to the public than thay are now, when thay snap the damage and death thay can inflict I think is likley to be greater than normal becaous of the detachment from reality.
1-Better to be judged by twelve then caried by six.
2-Better to be an open sinner than a false saint.
3-POLITICAL CORECTNISS will be the downfall of western civilization.
4-Gun control isn't about gun's, It's about control.
Those are my thought's on the matter.
