Clueless Forensic Psychiatrists

Hand-wringing American College of Forensic Psychiatry has trouble with the self-evident conclusion of the Virginia Tech shootings. The moderator, a lawyer, wants more data, because 32 murders and a suicide are not enough data for Dr. Steven Pinkert.

Here is a clue, Dr. Pinkert. This paranoid schizophrenic could not be forced into treatment until he committed his murders and suicide. Now, he qualifies for treatment.

If you loved this massacre, thank the rent-seeking lawyers on the Supreme Court. They took over the governance of psychiatry to generate jobs for three lawyers every time a dangerous mental patient refused care. There were no abuses to remedy. There was lawyer unemployment to remedy. In order to commit a person, one must now show imminent dangerousness. One must have a lengthy hearing. During the hearing, the prosecutor will prosecute. The defense lawyer will defend. And, a magistrate, yet another unemployed lawyer, will decide the clinical need of this dangerous mental patient, without the slightest knowledge of psychiatry. So three lawyers can pursue the rent, hundreds of victims get murdered. Thousands of mentally ill people commit preventable suicide, each year.

The pro-lawyer rent seeking members of this organization still wonder about the meaning of this massacre. The public sees the obvious. They demand changes in this Supreme Court horrible, lawyer full employment, rent seeking abomination.
