Brinsley has been arrested 19 times, admitted to mental disorder and was estranged from his family due to his violent behavior. He tried committing suicide a while ago by attempting to hang himself.

I am glad that Ms. Thompson will make a full recovery. This was obviously a sick man. Having someone to blame/pointing the finger, is always the media first approach. When those shootings happened in schools, it was blamed on rap music, graphic shooting video games and many more. Blaming the actions of a sick individual on innocent protesters who marched for change peacefully, is wrong. I have spoke out against the riots openly. Instead of placing the blame on people who want change and came in peace, please place the blame on those who decided to break the law.
