What do you think could have provoked this man to open fire in a planned parenthood clinic?
My own interpretation of events would assume that he was very adamantly against abortion. Maybe it was against his own moral standards and he wanted to illustrate a point.

Yeah, nothing promotes the "pro-life" stance like a terrorist with a gun killing civilians and law enforcement officers. Of course, the media won't call him a terrorist probably because he's not Muslim, so I'm sure he was just a mentally disturbed lone wolf who was off his medication... or whatever the excuse du jour is. He obviously won't be called a "terrorist" - even though, despite his motivations, that's precisely what he is.
I concur with your statement. He is by definition a terrorist. If my assumption holds to be true and he was doing it to promote his "pro-life" values, then he is really no different than the terrorists fighting to promote their religious values.
This is so paradoxical. A pro-lifer with a gun, very ironic indeed.
Anyone seen him ,I saw the arraignment video, obviously a nut job !
Psychiatric drugs seems to be linked to all of the mass shootings. Either the shooters were taking them or had recently been taking mind control drugs. There has to be a way of tracking potentially dangerous people.
All that tells me is that people with chronic mental illness are at some point likely to take medication for it (myself included). That is hardly surprising.
And it is almost impossible to predict when someone might become dangerous to others, let alone track their every movement against their will when they are (at that time) not guilty of any crime.
I agree. Its darn near impossible to predict if someone is going to go off the deep end or not. I guess I may be grasping at straws. There must be some psychological screening being done already? It seems to me that there has to be a genius that can come up with a better screening method. Just saying, I don't know what the solution is.
I don't think there is a single solution. If the person is lucid enough to lie, it is pretty much impossible to have anything but a suspicion that they might become violent. And legally a suspicion is not enough to infringe on a person's rights. There is a truly frightening number of disaffected people out there who might, under a certain set of circumstances, decide to start attacking people. Even if all those seeking help could get it, there would be a large population who reject help but are not sectionable (able to be treated without consent).
Thank you for this, "Even if all those seeking help could get it, there would be a large population who reject help but are not sectionable (able to be treated without consent)."
Cannot be compared? Not without consent.
That's kind of too bad...because everyone has core beliefs that can be checked by presenting evidence against a belief, but that could be extremely uncomfortable mentally. Perhaps more in-depth therapy for patients who are a ward of the state, instead of them being released too soon.
I had a friend who was released to soon from a state hospital, he was suicidal.

Before, it was all kind of fuzzy. We knew that abortions took place in Planned Parenthood facilities and fought against it, but other activities were unclear. Now, we have clear, undeniable evidence of the evil - and I...
