    Apparently there are enough gullible people to be dragged into such a thing. Even on this board.

    There will never be a race war. But maybe he is fully committed to a satanic ideology like Nidal Hasaan was when he shot up Ft Hood.

    It is time that we start treating the mentally ill instead of letting them wander about loose on the streets before we end up like Europe.

    Indeed. I grew up in Richmond, Indiana. The State Hospital is there. Whenever legislators cut funding, the mental patients were released on the streets.

    Ronald Reagan was the mover and shaker in pursuing policies that ended up dumping the mentally ill onto the streets and closing down most mental institutions.

    We do indeed have a mental illness problem in this country. But Dylann Roof wasn't crazy.

    The media tends to often try to make the white guys "crazy" while making the black people just violent.

    This guy's problem was that he hated black people. This is a skin color issue. It isn't a mental illness issue.

    Proof? How do we know? I'd imagine a scad of psychologists will be interviewing him. So I ask you, Zaac, how do you know he wasn't crazy? You blame it on racism and I'm sure that played a role, but I'm telling you, he's probably a few bearded ladies short of a freakshow.

    No proof. It's just awfully convenient how every time a white person does something like this, the right wing media and the racially prejudiced and racist folks who parrot what they say start throwing around the "oh they were crazy or on drugs" line. But with the black people, it's generally because there is a cultural pathology and dysfunction attributed to the black community.

    This young man was calculating and very measured in what he did. And far from crazy.

    Racism and racial prejudice usually include a degree of [​IMG]. But he ain't so crazy that it should be accepted as a defense.

    We'll see. He might be like Tim McVeigh--kill for a cause and try to die a martyr to a sick cause. McVeigh was not crazy. I wonder about the DC sniper?

    Insanity should not be a "get out of jail free" card. And it would be off the table if capital punishment went away.

    I remember Atlanta being the setting some years ago of a retarded black man being convicted of raping 3 white women, and it was overturned on appeal via the insanity defense. If that's your stomping grounds, Tapeworm, do you recall this case and know anything about what ultimately to that psycho?
