I suffer from a mental illness, Bipolar I with Rapid Cycling. Rapid Cycling meaning I can go from Manic to Depressed in a matter of hours. Thankfully I'm in remission. But when I was cycling, the only

Or he was off his ***** rocker.  Why don't we hold back on the sympathy for the dude that murdered children for the time being.

He deserves to rot in the hottest part of hell.

He must have been suffering a great deal

 

I am both the perpetrator and the victim.

People suffer all the time and manage not to go on a murder spree.

Why? because he's a person just like me and you. Was he a good person? from his actions it doesn't look like it but what lead him to those actions? Perhaps he had an illness like depression or something else.

Or he's simply evil.  Why can't people be evil anymore?

 

The obsession with finding something - anything - to blame aside from the proximate cause (in this case, a murderer) of somebody's death nowadays is baffling to me.

What about Ted Bundy? Should we have sympathy for him? Adolph Hitler? Stalin? Pablo Escobar?

 

Are we supposed to talk about how hard it must have been for these guys because surely they all had mental illness that led to their murders?

 

Mental illness is not an excuse for murder or genocide. Millions of people live with those same illnesses without managing to kill a bunch of people.

Apparently the man he killed was a doctor that treated him. I hate to speculate but this seems like CTE. 
 

This is so sad. Those innocent people. 
 

It’s equally as sad how so many players end up in shambles. 

The catch all disease. Again, thousands of former players live with significant effects from CTE without going on a murder spree.

 

Yes, pain and mental illness are hard. For sure. But nobody should get a pass for murdering others regardless of what they were going through.
