    I don’t understand…because you are deemed mentally ill that is your get out of jail free card? I can understand being a bit more lenient if you commit a crime while in a deep psychosis due to schizophrenia or DID. But borderline personality disorder? You know darn well what you are doing…what about a diagnosis of Anti-social personality disorder? If they go on a killing spree they should get less punishment than someone without a mental illness? Give me a break. That’s right..people with Anti-social personality disorder or BPD are “victims” it’s not them..but others that are responsible for the mistakes they make.
