I know that I shouldn't do this but I really must object to he suggestion that
an appropriate place for a mass murderer like McVeigh would be a mental hospital
or as it is so appropriately called below 'insane asylum,'
McVeigh was not mentally ill and so would not have benefited from treatment for
mental illness. It is also unfortunate that mental illness is conflated in
statements like that below with criminal activity. Mental illness is an illness
like any other. Unfortunately in our society it has been conflated with moral
weakness, failing an turpitude. it is not any of these. A mental illness is one
of a set of dseases which afflict people like any other disease. A mental
illness should be regarded as any other disease is.
