So sad and disappointing. Bernie Sanders ties gun violence with mental illness, IGNORING the fact that such violence is FAR MORE FREQUENT among the so-called NORMAL people. Mentally ill people are repeatedly (and habitually) scapegoated by politicians to detract attention from systemic flaws that make average—or “normal”—Americans angry and afraid. STOP ABUSING ILL PEOPLE, BERNIE SANDERS AND OTHERS! They need your help, not libeling!
Proportionally, the mentally ill are FAR LESS AGGRESSIVE than the people not diagnosed with mental illness. And yet almost every commentator in the USA labels them as culprits after a major gun-violence incident.
What is it, stupidity, laziness, or ill will?
