    thank you @walkie-talkie for your updates.

    Do these mass killers wake up one day and think today I will murder people? There had to be signs he was sick, imo.

    Survivor utters first word since Kalamazoo shooting

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — For the first time since six died and two were injured in a shooting spree almost a month ago, the attacks' youngest survivor has spoken, her family said Friday.
    "This little girl loves her pig named Hamlet," the family-approved ******** page posted in an update. "Tonight, Abbie spoke her first word. It was 'pig.' This gives us great hope that she will regain her speech."

    Man charged in Michigan shootings: Uber app took him over

    DETROIT (AP) — A man charged with killing six people in a series of shootings in southwestern Michigan interspersed with stints as an Uber driver told investigators he was being controlled by the ride-hailing app through his cellphone, police said Monday.

    According to a police report, Jason Dalton told authorities, "it feels like it is coming from the phone itself" and he didn't know how to describe that. He also described something "like an artificial presence," the report said.

    Dalton is charged with murder and attempted murder in the Kalamazoo-area shootings Feb. 20 outside an apartment complex, a restaurant and at a car lot. Two people survived. Investigators say Dalton didn't know the victims and described the shootings as "random." They still are trying to determine a motive. A judge earlier this month ordered Dalton to undergo a mental competency exam.

    Or like, maybe a classic case of severe paranoid schizophrenia..?

    Believing voices over a device were telling him what to do is very typical.. and adult onset of severe delusions isn't uncommon. It sounds (from the post about the poor guy who got a ride with him, above) like he was becoming very unstable before the shooting. Maybe off his meds? Or was undiagnosed and had a severe break...

    Anyway. As horrific as this killing spree is, it doesn't mean this man was "weak" or possessed by evil. A lot of very decent people suffer this debilitating mental disease, and sometimes the disease causes such severe and sudden delusions that no-one could have predicted it coming.

    If indeed this man suffered such a thing, I will choose to view this as a terrible tragedy all round. One that will hopefully prompt better mental health care for men and more help for their families.

    Man Charged With Killing 6 in Michigan Ejected From Court

    A man charged with killing six people during a night of random shootings in Michigan was dragged out of court Friday after bizarre outbursts during testimony by a woman who survived the rampage.

    A judge called a recess and ordered Jason Dalton to jail where he can participate by video. Tiana Carruthers sobbed loudly on the witness stand while stunned relatives of other victims watched him be hauled away by deputies.

    Judge Christopher Haenicke must decide whether there's probable cause to send Dalton to trial on charges of murder and attempted murder in southwestern Michigan's Kalamazoo County. It's a low threshold; prosecutors don't have to present all their evidence.

    Dalton made strange references Friday to "old people with these old black bags." The judge cut him off after he said, "It's time to get to temple."

    OMG I saw the video of the hearing where he started talking, interrupting a witness who'd barely escaped the incident with her life. I felt just horrible for the her. She just lost it, poor thing. :(

    Glad they dragged him outta' court. :mad:

    I watched this hearing this morning. It was crazy when he started disrupting the court proceedings and attempted to get up.
