Cho Seung-Hui: The link between depression and murder

Doctor Anonymous on the psychological autopsy by mainstream media:

I could be wrong, but I’m starting to see people in the press making the association between depression and murder. Of course, this kid had mental illness and of course he was undergoing treatment for it.
