Yeah, you all are so good at sweeping things under the rug down here. God forbid the bad things people do be brought out in the open, dead or not. Keep your heads in the sand. Your motto in the south should be "ignorance is bliss."

It's called schizophrenia. It is WORSE than death. It is like having a cancer that doesn't have enough mercy to kill you. Look it up! I'll make it easy for you, highlight this word--------> schizophrenia. Right click. Select "copy". Open a new tab. Go to Google, Bing, whatever. Right click the search bar. Select "paste". Hit "enter". Read what magically appears on your screen. If you have that ability to read, that is. If not, have someone read it to you. While Mr. Charles Murphy is the ULTIMATE victim, he is NOT the ONLY victim. Mental illness is hell on earth and ignoring that fact is the real reason horrid events such as this occur in the first place. Also, anti-psychotic medication causes you to have MASSIVE, weight gain. Think about doing some research before you state idiotic, uneducated opinions.

Then, if that is true and can be proven, the accused may be innocent by reason of mental disease or defect.

You are the coward to hide behind an alias and call people names when you know nothing about them, he is very mentally ill and should not be judged by us.

Most everyone on here is cowards. Always wanting to talk a alot of crap about people but no one knows who are they are. Everybody on here needs to quit talking crap about the Murphy family and the Lattus family. They all need to be kept in everybody's prayers!

What's next:

Please define "Crazy People" and why they should be put down like crazy dogs. The way I look at it is if they have a mental health diagnosis it is no different than someone having high blood pressure, diabetes, or any medical diagnosis. Should we "put them down like crazy dogs" as well because they have an illness? Why don't you go ahead and "put every single human, creature, and living organism down." because we are all subject to illnesses. It is not illegal to be mentally ill. Regardless, of people's illnesses they have just as much right to live in society as the rest of us. You start taking that right away, then what other rights and freedoms we enjoy do you want to give up.

When you have someone this crazy it's most likely they were born this way and they will not chance. They will never be any good to society only a problem.

Comparing crazy to someone who has high blood pressure makes no sense at all. Years ago crazy people were locked up and never seen again. However, today we have too many bleeding hearts who say this is not right... but only until someone in their family is killed by one of these crazys, then they are looking for a rope.

It's like Charles Manson... he is crazy and should have be hung the day after his trial along with all his girls. How many crazy people will be allowed to wander the streets until people finally get tired and do something about it. Then these people will just dissappear... one by one!!!

People yell mental illness too quickly, many times they are just evil, and many times they are spoiled rotten, becoming insane when they dont get their way
