Someone who kills 6 people and injures dozens more is being demonized.  Imagine that.

Now, I get it.  If this is truly a mental health issue -- and it's hard to imagine someone who does something like this not being farked in the head in some way -- then yes, this is something that needs to be addressed.  And this sort of thing has been needing to be addressed for a long, long ass time, along with the American healthcare system in general, which is broken to a degree that beggars belief.  Granted, I'm Canadian, where the healthcare system is, if not perfect by any means, still a damn sight better, so my view of the American healthcare system is pretty skewed, but I don't think many would disagree that it's objectively a dumpster fire.

America needs universal healthcare, and that includes mental health.  And it has the means to do it and save a ton of money in the process.  But Republicans loathe the idea, and democrats are too afraid of upsetting bipartisanship with a party that wants nothing to do with bipartisanship to do anything themselves even when they do have a significant enough majority to get it passed.

Cute meme, but he'd been in a mental hospital, and was on medication, but had been choosing not to take it.

Meanwhile, his 50-page rap sheet includes domestic violence, attempted firearm murder, "suffocation and strangulation," resisting arrest using a car, a previous incident of running people down with his car, and he's a child sex offender, who walked out on his own 3-month-old despite tearful testimony to a judge about wanting to give his kids a father like he'd never had.

Your view isn't skewed, our system is absolutely insane. It's the accidental result of government price controls during WW2 where large employers had their prices frozen for years and hence their employees wages. To allow a backdoor way to increase wages they asked if they could provide medical coverage as pre-tax compensation and were allowed to. 80 years later the system is entrenched because there are billions per year to be made as middleman between employers and healthcare providers so anything that threatens that is demonized even though the people voting against change are those who would most benefit from it (poor rural people mostly).

Sure, there are over 20 million cases of it and we're definitely not seeing 20 million crimes.  You can certainly exacerbate it by leaving it untreated - even for a period of time.
You can make it worse by being poor and  by not having access to treatment.

It doesn't help living among people who are ignorant or tolerant of its signs - in that they are not able to support wellness or don't recognize someone's actions as a symptom of being unwell.   Friends relatives or neighbors don't understand how to help someone who can function perfectly in so many ways but may shun someone or flee when being offered support.

Sometimes I think context matters.  And in this context, society would have a catapult for launching jack-holes like this into a wall of spikes, with rewards based on how close the executioner got to the middle of the target. and prizes for the families of the dead who could bet on what pieces would fly off when he hit.

This is not demonizing, this is entertainment and healing for everyone!

Because, for some strange reason, these people are victimized in institutional environments. I can't say for sure why, but I have to imagine it's quite similar to how Facebook moderators have PTSD from dealing with the overwhelming avalanche of inhumane, evil, and despicable acts of humanity. The burn out rate among anyone professional enough to deal with this on a long term basis is higher than what we can support and leads - inexorably - to people with mental health needs being victimized.

But, hey, if you have better ideas than just allowing doctors to chuck an icepick through your eye socket and swishing it around, I'm sure the American Psychiatric Association would be glad to have you come aboard. I hear they are having a tough time recruiting people to talk to cannibals and scat smearers.

But most states don't have the resources to compel those with a mental health condition to get and take their medications, especially if they refuse (which may or not be the case here- depending on the diagnosis) because that would be too restrictive to human rights. Just like denying them a gun or car if they set off red flags would be. (ie checking to see if they are on proper meds)

Just effort, our insane system actually costs significantly more than any other developed country, 18% of GDP vs 10-12% for most of the OECD. We could be growing like China if we switched to single payer as that 6-8% on top of our existing growth would be tremendous.

First I'd have to admit I support BLM.  I believe black lives matter.  I am sorry you don't.

Source?  Citation?  I've seen Mail and NY Post and they don't support your claims

The articles I read have him posting about police being like violent street gangs in anger over George Floyd and said when "we" start knocking white people out he doesn't care to hear anyone complaining about it.

I haven't seen militant.
I haven't seen death threat.
I haven't seen a specific direct threat of physical violence.
His anger is pretty clear and I'd be sure it's shared by millions.
His position on "the real chosen ones" is definitely ... off.

You have a guy with a lengthy criminal past, between his own actions and inadequate intervention, several deaths and injuries resulted.

But I guess maybe through lying you're hoping to continue to fuel a race war?  Perhaps you can elaborate.
