Response to Tempest (Reply #12)

Tue Dec 18, 2012, 01:00 PM

19. I'll see if I can find the article

I've been reading a lot on this topic lately, and I don't bookmark everything for DU discussions where I might get called patently ignorant. I'm not saying that psychiatry doesn't help people.

I'm concentrating on the impulse factor in these rage killings. A person may seek help for mental issues (as I have) and learn how to deal with their brain, but a lot don't, financial hindrances or not. Lanza was likely being treated for a number of issues - there are reports he couldn't feel pain, had a flat affect. He wasn't just depressed, he was genetically damaged - and not Schizophrenic like the Giffords shooter or the Aurora shooter.

We'll never know if Lanza planned this for a long time, or shot his Mom in a rage, then decided to go out in a blaze of infamy.
