Chertoff: Spotting Unstable Minds Key To Preventing Mass Shootings

Former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said that tragedies like the “Batman” movie massacre are more about detecting signs in people than about the weaponry they use, Politico reported.

Chertoff, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” said debate around shootings like the one in Aurora, Colorado, which killed 12 people, should not be confined to gun control.

"If you look at what we've heard about the apartment and the sophistication of the devices that were disarmed or disabled there, and you realize that even the kind of ingredients that you can find in your own kitchen can be used to make bombs," Chertoff said, according to Politico. "So the problem here is with the people and not with the tools.”

Chertoff and Homeland Security

SteveMT's picture

He ought to know.

Developing TSA whole-body scanners and reaping the royalties from their use is a person who should have their brain destabilized by them.

We all must have stable, rational minds like Chertoff

Become director of homeland security and mandate the porno scanners you are heavily invested in... sounds like a recipe for success from a perfectly stable mind.

Solve a debt crisis with more debt? Seems reasonable to me.

Kill hundreds of thousands of Iraqis as a prophylactic measure because they might one day attack you from across the ocean with their balsa wood drones? What could be more sane than that?

Spotting Dual Israeli-American Citizens...

.. with corporate interests or in government service is the key to solving false flag attacks and murder on a mass scale.

Out of all the people I personally know who went to Iraq or

Afghanistan, all have come home alive. Out of the nine that came home, 3 have killed themselves and one "car accident"-- ran into a tree head on....2 days after his girlfriend broke up with him.

Mental Health

We need to stop treating the ill like criminals so that their nearest and dearest will feel safe having them get help: that goes for drug users, and alcoholics, as well as those suffering from PTSD and a range of other mental illnesses and environmental toxins.

In order for a society to have a working mental health system, that society needs to be thriving economically, with few regulatory barriers, and an atmosphere open to innovation.

Government is the problem, not the solution.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Chertoff is a tax parasite. A sure sign of an unstable mind.

Free includes debt-free!

Ya think?

several people on dp agree

where the hell are you? stop hiding

He's really saying...

We need to identify people who believe in crazy conspiracies (any theory that contradicts the gov't/media's version) and have these people committed.

What is an unstable mind? If these people are identified without having committed a crime, whats the game plan? Arrest them? Throw them in mental hospitals? Spy on them, making them more paranoid and angry until they do act out?
