27. I'll grant you that...
Yeah, he shot a politician so it has political impact I suppose. And I do not disagree that there are a lot of the right that probably need meds as bad or worse than some of my patients (although there are plenty of the left that probably do too, just for different types of reasons).

But this guy is just plain unbalanced somehow. Aside from the fact that I can't diagnose, I haven't met and interviewed the person, but his behaviors, the timing of onset, and progressively worsening signs do imply a specific type of illness. IF that is the case, a raindrop could have urged him to kill. Really. And from some of his writings, it looks like he never intended to survive. Sometimes people can't just commit suicide themselves no matter how much they want to die. So they find what, to their warped thinking, is an acceptable way to get someone else to kill them. As for why he shot others, he might have gotten into a type of frenzy (4 shots to a 9-year old plays to that a bit) or he just wanted to keep doing something horrible until someone killed him.

By the way, thank you for being reasonable and providing explanation. Much appreciated.
