It goes without saying that

It goes without saying that the Connecticut school chilldren shootings is horrible. Yet what percentage of the total amount of children being murdered across the USA at the end of the year. It will probably be a small percentage of the total. Violence is systemic and daily in the US. It is a myth that the mentally ill perpetrate most of the killings and violence and murder in the US. Fact is, at most, 3% of all violent killings in the US are committed by those labled mentally ill. Furthermore the American Psychiatric Association admits there is no hard science that links mental illness with violence. The problem is there is something terribly wrong with America's ethos which violence seems to be one of the foundation blocks of.

The erroneous connection of mental illness to violence just gives the mental health/social control/big pharma complex to involuntarily administer inhumane drugs into our children and people who are merely difficult or strange.
