UT - Christopher Kirsch, 62, stabbed to death in his Orem home, 15 June 2008
Poor Christopher Kirsch. The 62 year old father was stabbed to death with a meat clever on Father's Day. What makes it worse is it was his own son who murdered him.
Michael Kirsch aged 31 used a meat clever to hatchet his dad while his mother called 911. The Orem, Utah man has a 2004 conviction for aggravated assault with a knife. Talk about hoping your child will grow up to lead a prosperous life as an adult.

Michael Kirsch had schizophrenia. He had been commited to a State hospital until 2007. How so very sad. Parents trying to help their son. That is heartbreaking.

Michael Kirsch got 20 years for the murder of his father with possibility of parole. Some plea deal going on.
Kirsch had to be prepared to be able to stand trial because of his mental health issues.
I'd wondered about this family. It's all too sad.

Once again I have to ask the obvious question; if we can develop a long term implant (Implanon) for birth control, why can't we develop an implant for schizophrenia and severe bipolar?
There aren't many among us who wouldn't be tempted to go off our meds if we felt much much better off them. People who do not live with these illnesses just don't get it. Mentally ill people don't choose to be this way. They don't choose to have horrible side effects. They don't choose to have a false sense of hope that the med is working. These illnesses are great temptresses and fool the brain.
When the brain is fooled, people get hurt.
