Unfortunately,I was in grade school,in The Bronx..I guess I was a "Borough" away from his madness.Doesn't matter if the canary was telling him to go kill,he still stalked people like prey and shot them to death.In their cars,lover's lane,while they were walking,it didn't matter......you were still scared to go out after a certain time at night.
You had a whole city "change" their routine because of.....fear.
Now John Hinkley...mentally ill or did he shoot President Regan for the attention of Jody Foster?
Or is he mentally ill or knew exactly what he was doing??
John Lennon's killer?
Sane or Insane??
My sister Sam's (actress) killer....
Where is the line drawn between mentally ill and just plain blood thirsty criminal?
