Psychiatric help before war rather than afterwards


Refugees from both sides of a war are sent here and told to live in peace.  Their bloody experiences attack their minds.

Ask a Psychiatrist about the state of the young man’s mind when he carried out a lethal attack at the House of Parliament.

Are we making this too complicated? We see a man who arrived as a refugee, has tried two academic courses, but left the second one, Accountancy after failing the first year. What support, if any, did anyone give him? It looks like a life gone wrong.

Where did he get the money to do the courses? Where did he get the money to send home to an ailing mother? His sister seems to have called him daily, asking for money.

Everything got too much and his mind did not shatter. Regrettably, it focussed on going out with violence and cruelty.  Thanks to the police and to the barriers, outside the Houses of Parliament, he was thwarted, but only after going through a group of cyclists. Was that a spur of the moment idea? Were his eyes shut so that he did not have to take any responsibility?

Whatever the case, he committed treason against the State. His fate may be to go to prison, where he will be fed three meals a day and maybe the pressure of sending money to his family will stop. Regrettably, he may learn the tricks of the terrorism trade in prison and could end up a pawn in someone else’s war.  Obviously, there was no thought in his head about being repatriated.

He was always silent, according to people who knew him slightly. Maybe the inherent friendliness of other people kept him stable. One would feel sorry for him if he had not hurt people. This case needs to be settled to the satisfaction of the British people. Since much is unknown, we must leave it to the police to decide, but forget a lengthy nonsense through the courts. Repatriation is cheaper in the long run and may, in time, prove the most effective deterrent. Then, there will be money to set aside to help other refugees with mental health issues.

Have a peaceful week
