Newtown shooter Adam Lanza acted alone, had no clear motive, according to a new report »

I saw some anger about this report—some of the families of those slain by Lanza appeared to be hostile to this report. One analysis I read said that it’s a detailed report and really did not have to be. The report in essence was only to determine if any more suspects should be arrested. It could have been only one page long with one sentence on it, but instead the State’s Attorney’s report is more detailed.. 
The overall hint is that the gun violence and mental illness of Lanza became a deadly combination. 
The good part of this whole horrible event is that maybe something will finally take place to improve mental health in the United States. The WASHINGTON TIMES reports, 
Rep. Tim Murphy, Pennsylvania Republican, said last week he intends to introduce legislation next month “to fix the problems that have plagued the nation’s mental health system for decades.”
He said in 1955 there were 550,000 psychiatric beds and today there are fewer than 40,000, that the standard to make sure a mentally ill person gets treatment is unworkable, and that federal privacy laws make information-sharing in such cases difficult.
“We have to advance this so we have a key to unlock the door,” Mr. Murphy said. “I ask my colleagues to join me in working for these mental health reforms so that families can share the joy of recovery, instead of the sadness of loss.”
As far as Lanza and the lack of a motive: Would a motive have really made any more sense to this senseless evil? Would a reason to kill innocent beautiful children given any more help to those grieving, almost one year since the nightmare stole Christmas in 2012?
I say no.
I recall how sad those days were after this shooting.
And now a year later we are reminded of it all over again.
I don’t think a motive would have even made sense … Nothing can make sense of what Adam Lanza did that fateful December morning in 2012..
