mental health

Posted on Wed, Nov 5, 2014 at 4:00 AM

Hello I would I like to comment about is the state of mental illness in this country . namely the young fella in New Brunswick who s lane three RCMP officers. I am sure he has received the sentence he deserved however I do have a few questions? first, why wasn't this young man under psychiatric care his parents tried to get him help yet to no avail. and he took it upon himself to kill three innocent people and for me I'd like to know why I like to know why and what mental derangement was running through this young man's head that would make him want to do something like this. no one in their right mind set tote in their day to kill three people let alone three Mounties I hope all he is in jail that he will seek the proper care and mental health that he so desperately needs and yes his crime was atrocious but putting him in jail for 75 years for a mental illness that he may or may not be responsible for could be a bit much It is sad to lose all those lives to a person who is suffering mental illness and maybe just maybe he had no clue of what he was doing you should be in a mental institution not a prison sometimes I wish they would have had a trial then we would have got a glimpse of why he did this, possibly take an outside psychiatrist or psychologist who could have treated him and told us why he really did and why he did this sad —were were the mental help people
