The real root cause was that this man was a nutjob. If you want to discuss Radical Reform of the Mental Health Community and finally start talking about REAL DTP issues, i think most of America is ready for that now. Where is the Bill or at least the hard proposal for the reforms? Lets talk about that. It is very obvious that we need to start this. Flame wars over what are really not the topic issues do nothing for anyone. One has to wonder when we stop the name-calling of the other side, whichever side that is, and the shouting matches. They do nothing.
To pass anything, we have to have both sides at the table. "Well Dave, the other side says so & so..." The other side has always said so & so since the beginning of time.
