Forensic psychologist: "Why were psychiatric treatments of mass shooters so obviously unsuccessful?"

"As a forensic psychologist, I have tested/evaluated 30 teenage and young adult murderers, and almost all of them had been in some kind of “treatment,” usually short term and psychoactive drug-oriented, before they killed. In these cases, access to mental health care was available but did nothing to prevent the violence – despite current arguments in Congress re: proposals for gun control vs. mental health access/treatment."

Dr. David Kirschner asks some hard questions in The National Psychologist.
