    Should never have let that boy out the prison and straight back in the street with no support system. He is clearly mentally unstable.

      Out the prison? You must mean the behavioral ward. I’m sure he has all the support he needs but it seems as if his *** father was just not one of them , but still it’s very sad this occurred.

    Mental illness is a serious issue in these lands. When will the UK investigate this matter? There are persons employed in Government with big degrees in high position who are clearly mentally impaired and everyone but these individuals are aware of it. This is a major issue that I hope will be investigated for the life and wellness of all.
