Dear Steve, 
The very reason I brough up that subject is because I have always seen mentall illness coupled with violence in the press and yes even with emails. From what i have seen mentally ill people have been abused and subjected to horrific abuse, just because of who they are. They live in frar most of the time never knowing where or when the abuse will come from. if they complain it is chalked up to their illness, so they have no out. Their abuse is considered part of their delusion, if someone is there or not.   I have a friend who is stigmatized by the label, when the Virginia Tech shooting happened they felt satisfaction,,,,, there,, finally one of there own had struck back for injustices, and from what I understand he had reached out and again been rejected.

 So i think whenever one couples mentall illness with violence , one should be careful. Most, or  almost all of the crime that occurs is done by mentally healthy people, the shrinks think mentally ill people are good scapegoats and frankly I'm tired of their bullshit too. 
Regards
barbara

I am in no way a psychologist and was using the term "possible schizophrenic" very loosely and by no means meant it to be either insulting or difinitive. Let's just say that from a layman's perspective something is "off" about Peter Zendran. He's a dangerous guy, and I know this from experience.
