What the hell is wrong with people?

This guy of 17, just picked a boy up of 6 and threw him from 10th floor of Tate Modern in London. The Mother of the 6 year old says she doesn't know who he is. Luckily at the moment, the 6 year old is alive still.... just... but in critical condition, mainly coz he landed on roof 5 floors down.

But what possessed this 17year old to do such a thing?

This whole World has been taken over by the Mentally retarded who go around thinking what they do is fine and dandy!

Some news:

A teenager is in custody on suspicion of attempted murder after a six-year-old boy was thrown from a 10th-floor viewing platform at the Tate Modern art gallery in London. The victim is in a London hospital after being found on a fifth-floor roof, the Metropolitan Police said. A police spokesman told PA that the child is “no longer in a life-threatening situation”. “He is critical, but stable,” the spokesman added. The 17-year-old male suspect had remained with members of the public on the 10th-floor viewing platform after the incident on Sunday afternoon, the force said. They added that there was nothing to suggest that he is known to the victim.

In any population there are nutcases. If it's a consolation the kid's condition is described as stable.

One can only assume there will be mental health issues associated with the teenager, normal, stable people just don't do that.

Its just crazy apparently the kid who done this just stayed with the rest of the crowds and watched what was going on until he was arrested.

No doubt we will get the usual crap about him suffering mental illness and that might be true but I think all too often mental illness is being used as an excuse for evil bastards doing evil #. Most people with mental illness still know the difference between right and wrong, it sounds bad but I can almost picture this 17 year old as being a typical emo kid who spends to much time online. Its sick and honestly some people are just bad, I think that society struggles to understand this at times so we slap the mental illness label on them to try to explain something that the rest of us just can't understand because we're not evil bastards for the most part.

I would lock this 17 year old up with a life sentence with no chance of parol life, prison should be a deterrent for this sickos but what will actually happen in the broken UK justice system is he will get a attempted murder charge and probably be out in less than 10 years. Honestly this scum bag has quite possibly changed that young boys life permanently and what he has done will haunt that kids family for the rest of their lives yet he will get set off to a nice cushy prison cell with a playstation and porn on demand, he will get the kind of education some of us get into thousands of pounds worth of debt for for free and then be out by the time he is 30.

Its so #ed up and it pisses me off.

It's obvious isn't it? We need stricter TV ownership control laws!

On a more serious note: I had read about the Tate Modern murder and almost posted about it because I thought I was seeing a pattern emerging .

A week ago:

An eight-year-old boy died and his mother was injured when a man pushed them in front of a high speed train at Frankfurt railway station in Germany.

Friday:
Madrid man kicked in the back in front of speeding metro train survives attack

July 22
Woman dies after being pushed in front of oncoming train near Duisburg

Stuff like this has always happened of course but it seems like there is a notable untick in the frequency of such incidents lately. Could be part of the same phenomenon as the mass shootings.

Yes it has always happened, but, now it is being reported worldwide instead of just locally. Of course media hype always helps.

Was this a "hate" crime?

London police said they arrested a 17-year-old male on suspicion of attempted murder.


Fun fact ...german media tried to hide the ethnicity of the perpetrators in Duisburg and Frankfurt in the exact same way and I´ll bet that the name of the arrested "teenager" isn´t british at all. Let´s see when the media releases his name...

Well... something triggered it. Maybe the poor child was crying or something and the guy couldn't handle it.

Yeah... agree with what you say.

I have MH issues but don't go around chucking children from buildings.

I guess when I called him 'mental', I just meant it as a reference to al the madness going on in the World right now with different groups of people doing what they want and believing its right to do so.

Can't argue with that really, some people are just nadty and want to hurt others. The emphasis definitely needs to be shifted from simply saying these people are mentally ill. I think from now on I will just refer to these sick puppies as evil.

I read about that one in frankfurt and yeah, there are many more of these types of events! i think people have just had enough of Society so go around doing unexpected things. I've had enough of Society myself... well, at least the system anyway... like most here on ATS.

Yes, there may be parallels between a person who throws a child from a balcony and a person who pushes a person into an oncoming train. It brings to mind this London Underground attempted murder , where the attacker had taken crack coc aine and thought the person he pushed "looked at me funny".

To this case. Whether the 17 year-old was mentally unstable, a drugged up low-life, or just plain evil will come out in due course. Either way, I expect he'll be going to prison for a long time.

Doubt he would be a drugged up low life hanging around an Art Gallery!

Undoubtedly everything is blamed on mental illness but i do think we need to be careful before shutting this down. Some people who do this kind of thing really are evil but others are genuinely away with the fairies and, having read some of the eye witness reports about this case, i think the 17 year old may well be in the latter catergory. For example, after it happened he allegedly just stood there with absolutely no emotion. He was restrained by 2 members of the public, one of whom punched him the face (good) and he still stood there completely emotionless.

If it is genuine mental illness, of which there are many varieties, then he may well not have been really aware of what was going on - that is to say his perception of what occured was completely different to the reality.

All too often the mental health card is played but if it is genuine mental health then it can put a very different spin on responsibility. It sounds like this lad was failed in that he should have been sectionned.

This is why it annoys me is the same after anyone does anything bad there is a hoard of people not just in the media but in general who want to dismiss it all as mental health. I am fortunate enough to never have had any kind of mental health issues but I know lots of folk who do and this habit that we seem to have developed as a society of blaming mental illness any time anyone does anything bad is just feeding a negative stigma.

Bad people do bad # because they are bad people, sure some might have a mental illness but in the vast majority of cases its just because they are bad people. We need to stop trying to give them a socially acceptable label and just call them what they are. Evil.

I know what you are saying but this does come across different as, for example, the boy pushed under a train in Germany. In that case, the perp clearly knew what he was doing as he fled the station and was chased down by members of the public.

In this case (Tate), the perp just stood there expressionless.

One smacks of either premediitated or at least a conscious attack, the other smacks of a very disturbed person. It isn't excusing the guy, he needs locking up and some serious help but it does appear to be a very different type of situation.

I did actually post this reply in another thread here on ATS.

We need to be careful though because al the rhetoric about 'Mentally Ill' people causing these tragedies will soon give authorities the rights to monitor everyone who has MH problems with Tags or whatever as if all would go out and do these things (which isn't true). And I don't think that's right, as that will be just like crooks out on parole who have actually done something to be tagged!

The witnesses said the teenager was blaming what he did on "the care system"-so maybe he had a bad upbringing-but so do many people and they don't go around trying to murder innocent children.
Hes obviously crazy and needs locking away in a secure hospital for life(which will not happen in the UK sadly).

He also got a jolly good beating from some of the witnesses,which is the least he deserved.
I'm surprised he didn't get thrown off the roof TBH.

Tragic story.
