Shooter cut himself on Snapchat, but was ruled stable

Note: I haven't posted much about this case because I don't believe that CPS had anything to do with it.  Yes he was adopted at birth (which usually means private adoption although I don't know for sure), but he wasn't a foster child screwed up by the system.  Adult protective services apparently investigated him a year ago for being an idiot on social media, but I deal with child welfare issues.

What this case should bring to light is the fact that parents of kid with mental health issues are largely left to deal with it themselves with very little help available.  Also, the help that is available is usually a joke because psychology is typically pseudoscience. 

I believe that the adoptive mother was probably a good person who tried like hell to raise him right.
Nikolas Cruz had just broken up with his girlfriend, who had been cheating on him, and he’d gotten into a fight with another boy. He’d drawn a "Nazi symbol" on his book bag. And Broward mental health authorities were worried that his chronic depression was worsening.
