Do you think these young adults that are lashing out needed someone to talk to and they felt they didn’t have anyone? I’m sure there’s many factors involved, but I wanted to do my part by creating a website where a young adult can be anonymous and receive totally free advice from someone who is only providing it to help. I live by Clackamas Town Center so that tragedy really hit home. My website is new and informing people of it is a real challenge, but I at least want to try and help.

They're saying he had aspergers syndrome but Dr Gupta on CNN, a lefty agenda channel even said that usually doesn't cause extreme emotional problems. Others say aspergers would make a more likely a victim.

Smart but remote reports tonight said his mom had trouble reaching him what ever that means.

Commentators are yelping more gun control and mental health. But those pushing for more mental health have to realize the US is already an over medicated if not over diagnosed society for behavioral issues.

Some medical circles consider every emotion a condition.

The problem with more institutionalization including money is that institutions are prone to corruption and incompetance. A recent example involving juveniles in particular is Florida recently shut down a notorious detention facility.

Corrupt judges AND institutions officials have incentive to lock up as many people as they can irregardless of need.

I don't want to see the wrong people unnecessarily imprisoned or labeled. And that's where this can concievably go.
