    In the wake of the Tucson shooting, one discussion occurring is one about mental health. Unseen, undiagnosed, untreated mental illness
    I do not doubt that is one of the discussions. Another is, when an issue is seen, and Loughner was very clearly seen, what are the responsibilities that accrue to those who see it?

    Is it to protect themselves, as Pima College did, or protect the individual, Loughner, and others, those shot and killed?

    Lawsuits will tell us.
