Hopefully they will keep him locked up forever but on occasion when a person commits murder and is found not guilty by reason of insanity, they spend a few years locked up and are regulated by medication. Then they are deemed ok to be released as they are no longer considered insane.( This might be true if he took his meds everyday) This was the case with Richard Rice of New Canaan who killed him Mom, Grandmother and Sister. He imbedded the axe he used in the Grandmothers skull and bit his Sister all over her body. He is out free as a bird. He only spent 2 to 3 years in an institution. Hopefully this will not happen in this case.

You are so right. The rich can go to expensive private places which are almost like resorts, the average Joe and the poor go to the likes of the old Fairfield Hills.

Mental illness is contrived by psychiatrists mostly motivated by profits, the fact is that normal behavior is being diagnosed by these quacks , believing is half of the equation, once a patient believes that he is mentally ill he will rationalize his behavior away.

You can tell if your doc or therapist is an idiot or if they care about you . You can tell. It's pretty dam obvious . There is nothing hidden there . It is all out in the open.
Medication is all personal. It works for some , it doesn't for others or it works and some just don't like the way it makes them feel. It works different for everyone some things are worth a shot.

That's not true in all cases. This guys behavior is not normal. Granted what is normal behavior? Who knows, but IMO hacking someone with a ax, eating their brains and eyeballs is not normal behavior. Going into a movie theater and shooting up the place for kicks is not normal behavior. These are the extreme, but there are plenty of people with less severe issues who do need mental health help.

That being said, I don't think every problem should be solved by throwing a pill at someone and saying that it will fix you. Big Pharma is evil.
