Crazy People Are Dangerous

How many times do I have to repeat this?

The gunman who opened fire in a church outside San Antonio, killing at least 26 people, escaped from a mental health facility in 2012 after he was caught sneaking guns onto an Air Force base and “attempting to carry out death threats” made against military superiors, according to a police report.
The report said that officers with the El Paso, Tex., police were dispatched to a bus terminal after Devin P. Kelley‘s escape from a behavioral facility about seven miles away in New Mexico.
The officers wrote that they were told Kelley “was a danger to himself and others” at the time and noted that he “was also facing military criminal charges.” The report was first obtained Tuesday by KPRC, a Houston television station.
This revelation came as authorities continued to seek a fuller portrait of Kelley and also probed a breakdown in military protocols that failed to flag a domestic violence conviction meant to keep him from buying firearms.

Once upon a time in America, crazy people were locked up in lunatic asylums, but then liberals decided we needed “reform.” So they turned loose the lunatics and enacted laws to prevent us from “discriminating” against crazy people. (This was just about the time, coincidentally or not, that Democrat George McGovern picked that kook Thomas Eagleton as his running mate.) Deranged and demented people weren’t the problem, according to liberals. “Society” was the problem. All we had to do is to remove the “stigma” from mental illness, they told us, and these wackos and weirdos could live among us in peace and harmony.

Except, no. Turns out there was a reason for the “stigma.” Can we finally admit liberals are just wrong about this? The same way liberals are wrong about economics, foreign policy and everything else? Or do we just sit around and wait for these dangerous kooks to kill us all?
