This should be interesting but I don’t think it will fly.

Doctor-patient priveledgse should not extend to the point where a patient is in danger of killing others. But it has to be THE DOCTOR who is smart enough to know.

She could have had him involuntarily committed as a danger to himself or others. I am not even a doctor and I had it done to my brother

This is not like a confessional and priest - which IS sacred. But even a priest can point out who is dangerous to the police without reveling what was said.

I don’t think such a suit is possible. There’s doctor-patient confidentiality, and the fact that you can’t arrest someone for their thoughts, no matter how disturbed. If he warned the right people, that’s all anyone can do. And anyway, liberals have made it impossible to commit someone to an insanity ward. I drive all the time past the place where “One Flew Over the Coocoo’s Nest” was filmed. It’s empty. All the nuts are wandering the streets now.

No Tarasoff duty to the public at large. This has summary judgment written all over it.

...having “fantasised about killing a lot of people.”

And what meds was he on that caused these thoughts and his subsequent actions?

Lets get to the root cause of all this.

Psychiatry (which is itself a rapidly evolving science) and the mental health profession have been under attack by liberals for years (think back to Jimmah Cahter).

While liberals love big government, it's power has not been extended to those who are in trouble mentally.

Libs have released the mentally ill onto our streets and then have blamed gun owners and others for the damage they have done to society.

Onyx...what say you?;-) You know first hand, while I am only an observer.

The problem is going to be context and level of the ‘fantasy’ in question IMO.

“fantasised about killing a lot of people.”

...could put a lot of liberals in jail if one applies it to Twitter accounts. Probably should.

But sis the psych think he was just being a Django movie watcher with a big mouth and a small...well you know. Or did she think he was a gen-U-ine psycho. That’s the problem.
