Well, you know what we need to do. Ban hack saws. They're too dangerous for people to have.

He will plead in insanity for this. Nobody in their right mind would do something like this.

It saddens me that he has already been through the system for a prior conviction and at that time, he was not picked up on his mental condition and given treatment for it, otherwise this probably wouldn't have happened if he had been Psych tested as being crazy and given meds.

Problem: under the current laws it's very difficult to involuntarily hospitalize a mental patient, much less force them to take meds, until some third party they've attacked is either dead or damed close to it. This is where most all of these spree killers start out.

I mean in the prison system, never been in prison myself but my understanding is that they are simply locked up with the ideation that only time, hardening up & deterrent in not wanting to be there is enough to make "rehabilitate" on their own accord and 'hopefully' it would have worked by the time they get out. Are they offered full support programs, mental health treatments & access to psychologists/psychiatrists when they are in prison, even if they have not been committed under any mental health issue?

Can their mental health be assessed and monitored as a normal course of action to see if they have any mental health issues, and then VOLUNTARILY given treatment options for it.

From his behaviours describing how he was before this, from the very little bit of information given, it would appear that he was already not quite right (and let's face it, someone who does this kind of crime has serious issues), but it might not have been diagnosed, if he was diagnosed, he might have chosen to voluntarily take treatment before it got to this point of dismembering victims and throwing their arms at people.

He was armed and dangerous; however, his victim was unarmed.
