Like you, I too have my concerns about the mental health issues. My fear is that once mental health issues are finally acknowledged as the direct
cause of mass slayings as well as crime, then those whom are seeking pyschological healing or taking medicines will be tarred with the same brush and
discriminated, even bullied by communities, which may result in them from being non violent into becoming violent one day. When a mouse is cornered,
it will bare its fangs.
Mentally ill people are fellow humans too, and need our help. NONE, must be left behind as we progress. It is the violently insane ones that we need
to watch out for.
There are those whom have mental issues and are never violent, except to rant and rave, and then when confronted, would run and hide away.
There are also those whom temporary allow their emotions take control over rationality and sanity, and in that blindness lash out violently without a
care or a thought, but when they calm down, they go into deep shock and remorse.
Then there those whom see shadows following them everywhere and at every corner, who had completely lost ALL sanity and logic, whom will just snap and
conduct those mass slaughtering of innocents with a smile.
It could be anyone of us who may go totally insane one day - a cleaner, a workperson, a student, more frightening would be a priest or clergy or rich
man for they have funds and influence to carry out greater threats to humanity, and the worst will be political leaders who have access to military
Thus, mental health is the most critical issue of our times, as evident by the numerous slayings with or without guns around the world, and this is
the issue we mankind must address.
We need to know what to watch out for, as mental illness is not a hidden sickness, but fully evident within close social circle if not within
communities, and help to rehabilitate, to save not only innocent lives, but theirs as well. Mental illness CAN be treated, but it must be acknowledged
personally first. Violent behaviour are often the first signs.
High time the mental health research institutes, industries. school administrations, family units and UN WHO goes on a high drive to resolve mental
health issues, than to cover it with a blanket such as banning guns which will NOT resolve slaughters of innocents as there are more dangerous daily
appliances that can do that job than guns.
Just a humble match stick on dry grass, or a gas lighter strucked upon an apartment filled with intentionally leaked cooking gas will equally kill
innocent people as much, if not more. Even a simple sound of 'fire' screamed out loud in a cinema can cause stampede deaths.
The Tetris game of slayings is now game on. Let see how many levels mankind can go on blindly without resolving root issues before GAME OVER - man
made end of our civilisations.
