You start by eliminating the concept of insanity/diminished mental capacity as a defense. Pull a knife on someone? Get charged like anyone else would. Threaten to kill someone, again, charged accordingly.

Stop dismissing the actions of these people because they are crazy. You want to use mental health in determining where they are incarcerated? Fine. Use it to dismiss their actions? No.
