Aurora, Colorado theater suspect, James Holmes, mailed a package to his psychologist prior to the shooting rampage. Many are questioning why the doctor didn't call the cops. Randi Kaye speaks to psychologist Erik Fisher to find out when is it okay for doctors to break the doctor-patient confidentiality.
Our Justice System seems incapable of "swift justice'. Not just with Aurora, CO. We had the mass shooting at the Army Base in Texas, and the mass shooting at the Gabby Giffords event. THREE mass shootings in which the shooter was caught in the act at the scene, and yet we have not had a trial yet. How many MILLIONS of tax dollars is it necessary to spend to convict the obvious? In each case, we need to determine whether the defendant is competent to stand trial and whether they were legally sane at the time of the crime. That is it. Then start the trial and hear the testimony. For the letter to the psychiatrist, it should depend on whether he pleads not guilty by reason of insanity. Then communication to the doctor is relevant. If he does not plead insanity, exclude any evidence of mental issues. He killed 12 people and tried to kill 58 more.
I also think Warner Bros should pledge 10% of the Batman movie sales to the victim fund. It would make people all over the world feel like they were helping by going to see the movie.
