4-Year Old Gets Beheaded in Random Attack in Taiwan

Since this incident I’ve been somewhat saddened and even disappointed at the Taiwanese population. Right away people were calling for death penalty. People were calling for his immediate execution. I was horrified. If this man really had mental illness, our cry should be for a health care system that puts resources into treating mental illness. To fight against the stigmatization of mental illness and not execute those ill.

When I saw this article, I became hopeful again. This mother, is an incredibly brave woman and I mourn for the loss of her child.
