Attorney Flops Around on VTech Shootings

Daniel W. Shuman, attorney, flops around in his editorial. "...there is good reason to conclude, in this case, that the threshold for emergency intervention failed to do what it ought to do." "One suspects that public policy in Virginia will demand less risk tolerance after this incident." "A word of caution: There will be no simple, single fix for what went wrong in Blacksburg at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007."

Get the lawyers out of the running of psychiatry. Reverse, by Federal statute, the abomination of the Supreme Court decision that qualified the murderer for care after he murdered 32 people and himself so that Shuman's lawyer friends can have more jobs.

The sole effective remedy that prevents suicide is long term treatment, and compliance with such.
