Did you know that those with mental illness account for less than 1 percent of all yearly gun-related homicides in North America?

and people with mental illness account for just 3-5 percent of overall violence in the U.S?

Source:

BBC

Update:

I am mentally ill (Bipolar, Anxiety Disorder). I don't care if people think I'm scary. I don't care if people assume **** about me, or if people think that BBC is full of ****. I believe them. I do not fear myself, nor my mind.

Update 2:

Yes. People are undiagnosed due to lack of resources. Many people commit violence, and don't have a mental illness though. Also, I am pretty sure that they do mandatory psych evaluations on murderers.. Unless it's a big cover up, then I don't see how BBC is wrong.

Update 3:

Well, maybe the Psych tests aren't mandatory. I shouldn't assume that. I would think that they have some kind of system in place to determine a criminal's mental state though. How else would they get these stats? They just sat around a table, and made all this **** up? What would be the point of that?

    Did you know that the human head weighs ten pounds?

    Maybe with a diagnosed mental illness. Many people with mental illness are undiagnosed due to lack of resources. If you ask me, anyone who shoots someone, and it's not in self defense, is mentally ill.

    I don't believe that for one second. You all need to quit believing everything that you read on the internet.

    Yes most are white crazy cons

    • You really dont want to break down murder stats by race. If you did, you would see that a race that makes up only 13 percent of the population, commits over 50 percent of the murders.
