When I saw the title of this post, I said "Something has to be wrong with him mentally." Schizophrenia is nothing to be play with man, those people can go from zero to life-threateningly paranoid in 3 seconds flat. Its really sad that this family had to experience tragedy like this.

I don't care if that was my child, he wouldn't have been living with me, I can tell you that much. The crappy health care system in this country makes it very difficult for people who really need it to get quality healthcare, and then things like this happen.

Yea i read about this, they always make excuses of mental illness, which it could be but still he should suffer the consequences he posed in a picture with her head no remorse, and heartless.

He's a schizophrenic who has been off his meds. These people are NOT in their right minds, and see and hear all kinds of things we can't even imagine. I don't believe he was heartless or cold- I believe he became of victim of his disease. Yes, he should be punished, because he committed a crime, but people who suffer from mental illnesses and commit crimes are often stigmatized as being totally in control of their actions, and, in some cases, they really are at the mercy of their mental processes, messed up though they may be.

I can't tell you how many times I've heard black people say 'That's white people's problems, WE don't take medications/see therapists, ect.' Yeah, and that's part of the reason there's so many jacked-up people walkin the streets, because of the stigma attached to it.

People, especially black folks, are known for not seeking treatment for something until its either almost too late, or too late.

Mental illness runs in my family.  My great grandmother was bipolar and had schizophrenia.  They finally were able to diagnose her in old age they had to make a decision to place her where she could get care.  My grandmother one of her 10 children was the only one who visited her on a regular basis. 

One of my older cousin is a certified genius with a high i.q.  In high school he went bananas.  Tested him and he too was bipolar along with some other mess.  He went coo-coo and locked himself in his bedroom for a week.  We live in NJ.  My grandmother had to come for North Carolina to talk him outta there. 

They ended up putting him on different meds and moving to Baltimore, MD so he could get housing and assistance with disability.  They were trying to put him a mental institution her in NJ.  My grandmother informed my aunt she had move get him better care. 

That man allowed himself to be a victim.  They have reports that his family mother, father, etc tried to help him as much as they could. When ever he complained about his meds they would change the dose or try something new. He just wouldn't stay on his meds.  If you make a choice not to take something to give you a better chance at life then that's on you.  He made himself a victim of his disease.

If he it was his meds so much why was he trying to pass the buck on the guy who helped him.  Trying to say the other guy did it.  Responsibility for your own actions and accountability is what he's trying to pass the buck on to his "mental illness".
