There are those who will always be criminally insane & a dangerous threat to society. The point here is, proactivity. We could have saved those children from being mowed down.
? What I'm proposing doesn't allow for repeat offenders.
Actually I'm not proposing anything. I'm saying that right now the only choices are lock em up forever or institute some kind of magical system that cures people. Lock em up forever - super costly, wasted lives, etc. Magical rehabilitation system - sounds all nice and rosy, but how the hell do you institute that? Do you just drug everyone that ever had an angry moment? Identification of who to treat will be hard enough, then actually being sure that the treatment worked is another story.
