I'm an introvert but I'm not a mass killer. So I get that, but there a huge difference.

A classmate said he picked his nose and ate scabs. That should get him interviewed.

If you have failed as a parent, or if your spawn is genetically broken, then it should be your top responsibility to protect society from the monster. It’s your fault they exist.

Spend every last penny you have on mental help, monitor and report all suspicious behavior, etc. Furthermore the government should incarcerate these “bad eggs” in their parents homes, with ankle bracelets.

Parents of “bad eggs” should have a percentage of all wages garnished and put in a trust that wii continue supporting the “bad eggs” after the parents have passed.

The solution for people who cannot handle these consequences of being horrible parents is easy, just don’t have kids.

Don’t bring some monster into the world and make it my problem. It is your problem until death.

Who gets to make that arbitrary call? (Which it would be if no crime was already committed)

You?

No. Whoever is in power would.

Remember, the same unchecked power you're clamouring for could also be used against you.

I don't think people in this thread are grasping that.

There are people that cannot safely walk amongst civilized society.

These hospitals provided a useful option for society to maintain safety for the civilized.
Yals Ronald Reagan dedunded mental health in the 1980s. 30 years after, mass shootings went up. Men are loosing it.

What about the good things?

I make more money in a year than my mom (still living) made in her lifetime. Does she get a forced cut?
