Opinion: Shooting Should Prompt Mental Health Talk
Sources say that Adam Lanza -- the alleged gunman in a school shooting in Newton, Conn. -- had "some sort of mental disability or personality disorder," Sacramento Bee columnist Bruce Maiman writes. He adds, "Would it disturb anyone to know that last year ... [Connecticut] Gov. Dan Malloy (D) proposed drastic cuts to mental health and addiction services?" Maiman concludes, "[A]n honest debate about mental illness is one we've long neglected. At our peril."
