I mean collect things all the time, it's only a matter of time before someone goes a little overboard with collecting knives.

I mean sure she has mental health issues but I feel like this monster portraying is a little uncalled for.
It's not her fault she was born with a mental disability into a society that is poorly equipped to cope with such things.


She was obviously very protective of her home, not wanting anyone to go inside and all. It should have been obvious to the police that she had a mental disability and they probably could have handled it better than just pushing past her and forcing their way into her home. It's no wonder she attacked them.

Having several thousand knives is not in and of itself illegal. Being somewhat nuts myself, my first thought when I saw the title was "so?". Then I read the rest of the article, and it suddenly made sense why people were freaking out.

As far as how we should treat criminals with mental disabilities, I'll leave that to the system and the voters who decide how much funding to provide to it. Even with all the mistakes cops are accused of making lately, the standards for being hired by law enforcement are high enough that there are already critical shortages in many places. There's only so much someone can be trained for and expected to do under pressure, and the first priority has to be to remove the threat. If someone is a danger to me I don't really care whose fault it is or isn't that they became a threat, I'm gonna do what I have to do to protect myself with the resources available to me, and if I don't happen to have a master's degree in special needs and that person is swinging a machete at me, I'm taking them down. Nothing personal.

My first thought - paperwork. That would keep my finger from the trigger.

Good thing you're not a cop. We already have too many thugs with badges.

Maybe she was fixin' on opening a Halloween pop up store. Knives-R-Us!

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I've carried a gun every day for the last 14 years -- longer than most cops do.

Never used it in anger.

You're a predictable twat.

In the U.S. whatever we don't understand we consign to the criminal justice system. It's no wonder our prisons house a greater proportion of our population than anywhere else.

I'll have to nose around google for awhile and see if there are any studies that have measured the relative fearfulness of U.S. culture compared to others - we are one jumpy, cowardly, scared of our own shadow crowd.

Shoot with a gun or a taser?

Looks like the cops used taser and beanbag gun. Seems like a decent call to this guy in the peanut gallery.

She'll probably get to plead insanity.

But swords? Do you recall the young soldier in England being macheted to death by those two Islamic freaks?

She's obviously dangerous, banging on her windows and screaming at night??? She should be in an asylum. Hopefully she'll get some help.
