Yes. James Holmes was identified as a danger by his college but since the semester was over they dropped the issue. Adam Lanza was going to be treated but his mother had to go through too many hoops especially after CT did not pass a law that would have made it easier to get him the help he needed. Both Aurora and Newtown could have been avoided if we treated mental illness as a serious problem.
How is that a controversial position?
