It's not our fault, we only work here!

Yet another poor sod, this time a certain Daniel Gonzalez, with delusions and mental unstableness has been allowed to fend for himself. In this case to go on a murdering spree with the thought that he is the reincarnation of Freddie Krueger. A court has seen fit to put him away in prison for murder. That is the law and we are safer for it.

However, the victims were victims because the bloody system went into its usual denial. Det Ch Insp Dave Cobb, from the detective squad, said unemployed Gonzalez wanted to be "remembered as a famous serial killer". "But I hope he is forgotten and that we only remember his victims," he added. The trouble here is that because the system is so full of people ready to blame each other for its papable failings we are likely to remember him before we remember them. Gonzalez was forgotten by the system, or shunted aside. Can't the dozy Inspector see that? The police would save a hell of a lot of time and money if they got their act together with the other agencies and actually did something about these roaming mental patients.

His mother said "Every time we asked for help for Daniel or Daniel did himself, we were told we would have to wait for a crisis to occur before he could get the help he needed." She said her son had been failed "by a system that is under funded and seems incapable of providing joined-up care over any period of time", and resolved to not "let matters rest here".

It seems to me that the insanity in all this is at the hands of the bureaucrats who know that these timebombs are likely to go off, but because their crazy methods tell them otherwise, we are all left wondering "What if?"
