Mass Killers Are NOT Psychos.

This has implications, especially for the atheist and practical-atheist crowd which prefers to yap about  psychobabble instead of  calling it what it is:  serious moral problems.  That's why you won't find this item widely distributed in the Fake News MSM.

...In fact, few mass killers actually suffer from a diagnosable, serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and psychotic spectrum disorders. A 2004 analysis of more than 60 mass murders in North America, for example, found that just 6% were psychotic at the time of the killings. And when it comes to mass shootings, those with mental illness account for “less than 1% of all yearly gun-related homicides”, a 2016 study found. Other studies indicate that people with mental disorders account for just 3-5% of overall violence in the US, (much lower than the prevalence of mental illness in the general population – up to 18%) which “still leaves you with around 96% of violence, even if you’re able to eliminate all people with mental disorders”, Appelbaum points out....quoted at Boots&Sabers

The other set of people who will try to suppress this knowledge are the Progressives, who want to imitate the Marxist-Stalinists by declaring certain people to be "mentally ill."  The "mentally ill" group includes anyone who is religious, or at least a political conservative.

(Yes, I realize that the Progressives and the atheist/practical-atheists are largely the same people.)
