(But like the Left, I guess some can't let a good tragedy go unexploited.)
Maybe not detained but could have been properly medicated.
re post 12, The shooter, Adam, apparently had no record of criminal behavior due to mental problems and had not come to the attention of the police or public as to having problems. That’s what is needed to be involuntarily treated under the law discussed here.
I wonder if the lack of coming to the attention of the authorities was due to the intense sheltering of him by his mother and the great efforts she is now described as making to care for him? She had withdrawn him from high school and home schooled him as he did not fit well in a school setting. He seemed to have no job and lived in her home. Was Adam on SSI and had a professional evaluated him to sign that he was eligible due to emotional problems?
I am not blaming her for this. The fact that other mental problem individuals get noticed is often due to lack of the family to be able to control that person at home and lack of will or resources to keep control.
