Over the protests of the defense, Judge Lott allowed the district attorney to show jurors the first two minutes of Handful of Diamonds, the adult video that Michael had rented, under the pretext that it established his state of mind before the murder. Though tame by today’s standards, the film did not curry favor with a Williamson County jury. “I was repulsed,” Lou Bryan, a now-retired schoolteacher who served on the jury, told me. “I kept thinking, ‘What kind of person would watch this?’
When Montay comes home and finds his wife nearly dead due to an overdose of sleeping pills, Montag calls the emergency service to revive her. The next day, he asks the people from emergency services why they didn’t bring a doctor, and the man replies, “‘we get these cases nine or ten a night. Got so many, and staring a few years ago, we had the special machines built’”(19). This quote shows that there are a lot of suicidal people. They feel alone and useless which leads to them becoming depressed.

He even wrote a disturbing story about an old women that hid a gun in her cane and killed wantonly. There was also an incident in California were a shooter by the named of Elliot Rodger took medications for his Asperger’s disorder. This article assessed four assumptions that are associated with the aftermath of mass shootings. They are, mental illness causes gun violence, psychiatric diagnosis can predict gun crime before it happens, U.S. mass shootings teach us to fear the loners who are mentally ill, and because of these complex psychiatric histories of these shootings, gun control won’t prevent another
When asked the question, “Are you aware that alcohol is a factor in many cases of violence,” he states, “Yes, but that’s not my fault.” Lou Dempsey also failed the experiment of conducting compliance checks. In Jerry Newman’s affidavit, he said that their crew sent in decoys into Mr. Dempsey’s store to examine whether or not he checked for identification for being under the age of 21. These checks are sent out each month and Lou Dempsey’s store failed two of the tests. When this happens the police staff suggests a beverage server training for the owner. Dempsey took no interest in the training.
Dave had many marks from the beatings he would get at home along with the burns from the stove incident. He also was caught stealing food during the school day so he wouldn’t starve to death, but since his principal found out and called his mother his punishments extended and he was starved and beaten up, “ By the end of the session, my nose bled twice and I was missing a tooth” (p.33). He was also sleep deprived, he said that one of his teachers “began by questioning me about my attentiveness. I lied, saying I had stayed up late watching television”(p.33). Appearance was not much of a matter to Catherine, so he send Dave with the same torn, smelly clothes every single day, but Dave knew exactly what to say when questioned “When asked, I had my readymade excuses Mother brainwashed into me.” (p.30).
On January 2nd, Jenny Goodheart noticed two bottles of milk sitting outside Mr. Peacock’s door. Confused and worried, Ms. Goodheart looked through his window to see his dead body lying on the floor. She ran down to the police station and told us what had happened. My detective crew and I had gone to Mr. Peacock 's house and entered through the window to see him lying there like Ms. Goodheart had explained. From the evidence my team and I gathered we had determined that the death of Winston Peacock was a suicide because of his lack of money, the gun in his right hand, and him living alone.
A friend of Maureen Brainard-Barnes, the first of the victims to disappear, says she got an odd call a few days after the 25-year-old vanished in 2007. “ said she was at a whorehouse in Queens,” Sara Karnes tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on newsstands now. “I told him she would never go for that, because she was independent.

In Tim O’Brien’s story “Notes,” he discusses his fellow soldier “Norman Bowker […] [who hung] himself in the locker room of the YMCA” (149). Bowker symbolizes the pain that many veterans experienced, and how they sadly found their only escape through suicide. Yet, veterans potentially could have survived and even thrived if they had access to resources such as therapy, psychiatrists, and psychologists. When organizations supporting the idea that veterans should have opportunity to obtain these assets proposed this concept to The House Committee members, “members repeatedly balked at the notion that Vietnam Veterans required special counseling programs to help readjust” (Scott 38). Additionally, Patrick Hagopian reflects on how the government opposed the idea of providing these necessary resources so much that “the Nixon administration identified the politically engaged psychiatrists as enemies” (55).
