This twisted way of thinking is the very reason why Mitchell Moore is now dead.
No Waldo, I don't get my ideas from the movies nor do I base my logic on what they do in Hollywood... This woman is not a "little crazy". She shot her own son in the head... She's ghoulishly INSANE and should have been locked up long ago when she demonstrated "clear signs" of harmful mental behavior. I don't however expect people like you with your twisted logic to understand this. Its people like you who make apologies for the perpetrators of crimes and evil doings and then paint them as the "victims".
I believe that you have a history of mental disorders in your own family and that is why you are apologizing for this crazed Ghoul.
I certainly was not defending this woman for doing what she did to her son and to herself. I think she WAS very mentally ill. My suggestion was to look at the hospital she was sent to to try to find out what kind of treatment she was given. It obviously did not work. In fact it seemed to have made it much worse in that she had no intention of ever seeking help again or getting committed again. She prefered taking out her son and herself than to get help. And she was able to hide it well enough to plot and plan this horrible event.
"Changling" is a Hollywood movie but it is based on a true story. In the 20's the police DID send this woman to a mental hospital because she would not cooperate with the police by sticking with their story. Look up "Wineville Chicken Coop Murders" if you want to really understand insanity. Because of the reluctance of the police to actually catch her son's killer this guy remained free to murder again and again.(In the real story it was the guy
AND his mother that kidnapped and killed young boys.)
Also you did't mention China and other countries who still commit people to mental intitutions for not following the party line.
There are truly mentally ill people who need to be institutionalized. But not everyone who acts a bit crazy is a danger. And no -- none of my family has ever been institutionalized. So I am guessing you have had personal family history of mental disorder that you, and only you can have an opinion about this?
What disturbs me is the number of ads for medications that will "cure" people of depression, as if a little pill will fix everything. They show someone who obviously looks sad. The person takes the wonder drug and is happy. So easy. But wait. The side effects are suicidal thoughts and committing suicide. So you can look happy but still be suicidal? Doesn't it take just a little more than a pill to fix anything?
The easy answer is just institutionalize anyone who might be mentally ill to protect themselves and others. How do you do a sweep up of mentally ill people and who gets to make that determination?
There are no easy answers. I only posed an opinion that maybe that hospital she went to should be looked at. Not condemning the hospital but to find out why she was released. How could she "seem" stable enough to be released and what can we learn from that?
