Anyone killing others "just because" (not in self-defense) has mental issues, the question is whether it's indeed a "moment" (and as sad as it is I can see it happen in certain situations) or something planned. If latter there is absolutely no excuse for what was done. Whether you call it insane, mental issue, full of sh**t, or whatever else.
I do agree that some mental issues are treatable with medications or just take time to resolve itself (after-birth depression is one of them). But if the every-day medications are the only way to keep the person somewhat normal, what if the person forgets to take those medications (or just doesn't have money to buy them) for several days in row? What is the possibility there will be another victim on a way just because he/she heard "voices" again? I've read such stories about people released from the mental facility who did kill again, and it's scary. How can one decide if the person is (potentially) dangerous?
