Extracts from this document...

Introduction

'Some Human Beings Are Evil And Not Mentally Ill' I agree with the above statement that some people are pure evil and do not have any mental illnesses and I believe there to be many reasons to back this statement up. But I also agree that some people do have mental illnesses and are not evil. The reasons that I believe some people are mentally ill and are not plain evil are as follows: - They commit crimes in a careless way They commit suicide shortly after they have committed a crime or done something They seem incapable of rational thought They have a history of illness When I say they commit crimes in a careless way, I mean that they do not think about how the crime can be brought back to them.
