I know I am not the only one who is troubled about the little girl out in CA who was allegedly killed by the Sunday School teacher. I have been watching the case on HLN along with the updates on the Caley Anthony case. Both cases are just heartbreaking. What really bothers me about the little Sandra case is the uproar that is coming out about the background of the woman they have charged...this Melissa Huckaby person. Evidently this Melissa Huckaby has quite the checkered past emotionally with being raped at 18, some sort of abusive relationship, a run in with the law and getting charged with petty theft at a Target store and then being court ordered to attend mental health treatment for an undisclosed reason. Nothing really stands out as being really OUT there as far as being psychotic or a danger to self or others. Now the news people are clamoring for some sort of registry akin to the sex offender registry for people with mental illnesses. OMG. At least a few people who were on the shows had the good, common sense to say that was idiotic because if you filled any room that at least 20% would have some form of mental illness but the zealots wouldnt be deterred. They insisted that people with "severe mental illnesses like 'bipolar, schizophrenia and personality disorders'" should have to register in order to live among the good citizens of this country so they could be tracked. Sigh. I know this is frightening but we dont even know that this woman was diagnosed with any of these disorders. Most people with these disorders dont become violent especially if they are taking their medication...but even if they dont, they arent always violent. I am not violent. I dont want to have to register someplace and have every person in my area know my psychiatric history. Would you? This just bothers me to no end.
