Although I agree that the “crazy defense” — the use of alleged mental illness as an excuse to defend certain criminals — is grossly abused, the other sentiments failed to resonate with me. In my experience, I have always been devastated by suicide and homicide, regardless of race. Regardless of gender, age, or socioeconomic status, for that matter. People are people. Such crimes are deeply saddening. As a whole, the mental illness defense is widely exploited.
