Exactly. I wish him all the best but...from a safe distance.

You wish him all the best? This guy tried to murder people. End innocent people's lives for no reason. Do you understand that?

He's trying to improve his life. He's still not trying to murder people. I wish him all the best meaning, I hope he remains mentally sound and ceases to hurt people. People can change. Or do you think people are destined to be damned forever.

Did you even read the article? What part of the article are you not understanding? Jeesh.

Yeah I read the article and I don't buy the BS about him improving his life. A person that attempted to murder at least three innocent people does not deserve the opportunity to be a part of society. So yes he SHOULD be damned forever, locked up and keys thrown away. He's a sick POS and should spend the rest of his life in a cage.

Except you canít just lock people away, there are laws. Homelessness itself causes mental deterioration and if people wa t to help reduce violence they will work to end social problems that lead to that.

He was probably released cuz' the Department of Corrections didn't feel like using valuable space on a senior citizen but, still, that guy tried to kill 3 people in one of the most grisly ways possible, for no reason.

People argue against guns because they can kill. People argue in favor of guns because they cannot flip out, get angry, lose their marbles or any combination of the 3.

This "person" has shown us he is both and, no logical argument exists for me that this man should have ever left prison except in a bag or box.

uh, the guy tried to kill 3 people by pushing them to an incoming train. That is a good reason to lock him up for a good amount of years..

He has serious mental health issues, the kind where he may have seen the people he tried to kill as demons, or out to get him.

Unless there is a some way to ensure he is taking his medication, he has the potential to miss doses and revert back. It is unfortunate, but there really isn't a sure way of curing his mental health, only controlling with drugs. Hopefully in the near future there will be ways to monitor their intake, sending reminders when they fail to do so, or ultimately being detained until they take their medication.

An automated system that can track can hopefully be implemented cheaper than incarcerating all the mentally ill.

He was homeless at the time he tried to push those people, and conditions on the street do deteriorate mental health.

That doesn't mean he didn't already have some sort of illness, but being HOMELESS makes it worse.

With that said, he has not reverted back, and you cannot punish for someone for what they MIGHT do. Anyone could potentially do something horrible.
