  1. Schizophrenia. It's not schizophrenia, it's demons. She is corrupted by satan. I pray that she doesn't get out of jail so people in her area can be safe.

  2. Correct me if I'm wrong but in Morgan Geyser case, since when someone who suffer from Schizophrenia, plan, organize, get equipment and gather people, find the right place to commit the crime, then commits the crime? Then later sit down with the police and nonchalantly with a cavalier attitude describe the crime committed in a coherent matter? That is more indicative with someone who is a psychopath then someone who is Schizophrenic. Can someone with Schizophrenia commit this caliber of a crime? I always thought Schizophrenic were delusional. To do this crime requires forethought.

  3. I believe in Slenderman, but this is just disapointing. He wouldn't contact people like this. They are just dumb kids.

  4. It worries me, because there are people who unironically believe in slender man, and believe that they're their "proxy" I hope fellow youngins such as myself can be smart enough to know that this isn't real
