This is another great article on how not to rush to judgment. People rush to condemn mass murders, especially of children in school as ‘Mentally Ill’. This disputes that knee-jerk reaction and is in addition to the article on the Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay.

The article appeared in Slate.com titled: “How to Stop Violence Mentally Ill People Aren’t Killers. Angry People Are.”  How to Stop Violence

The article is by Laura L. Hayes Ph.D., a psychologist in Bethesda, Maryland. She works with adults, couples, and teens integrating mindfulness with traditional therapies.
