This report begins : "A cleaver-wielding schizophrenic." making a person into a disease. Though not unique among journalists it shows negative bias in the minds of the writers and editors. Why is the alleged mental illness a defining element in the crime report? Do journalists and editors believe that mental illness causes crime? What is the basis for any such belief beyond bias? There is none.
