I did that I feel like a presidential candidate you quoted me out of context.

Off the street now it's not easy you can't always predict and this is it.
The case here in Aurora is a difficult one because we don't have a paper trail we don't have a lot of history.
But I give me the example of the Tucson shooter.
Within a day or two we knew the guy was clearly psychotic.
You heard from his teachers you heard from a student.
In one of its -- -- who said she dropped out because the guy was so scary so you've got everybody around him knowing.

At the mass general hospital and I was running the -- the psychiatric.

Today the restrictions are much higher the barriers are much more difficult to overcome.
And the lawyers are out there just waiting just way too soon you and a -- -- you think the ACLU for that by the way they or in the forefront.
