The Thing Mass Shooters DON’T Have in Common w/ @DiannaEAnderson #KatieSpeakShow Ep109 10/21/2017

In brief: In the aftermath of every public shooting — not perpetrated by law enforcement — legislators and commentators, neighbors and family engage in perpetuating an extremely harmful myth: that mental health reform can prevent another similar tragedy. Dianna Anderson is back on the show to disabuse those willing to listen of the notion that mental illness is any sort of indicator of violence.
