The road to wholesale slaughter...

Is apparently paved with good intentions too...
Baty said the psychiatrist prescribed the medications, a fact that made her so “nervous” that she tried to persuade him to stop taking one of the drugs.

She said he had stopped taking the antidepressant three weeks before the Valentine’s Day rampage on NIU’s campus, which left five students dead and 16 wounded.

He then fatally turned a gun on himself.
No word... strangely enough... on where Ms. Baty acquired her own vast "medical expertise".

Anyway... didn't we just do this one?
You have to start flagging people with mental illness... and make sure someone is personally responsible for ensuring they take their meds... or turning them in to the authorities for refusing to do so.

It truly is that simple.
