The real problem with “mental” halloween costumes

Quoting from Dean Burnett’s interesting take on the Asda “mental patient” Halloween costume debacle:

“Mental patients are rarely violent. The term "mental patients" includes people like depression sufferers, who struggle to lift their heads some days, let alone go on a blood-soaked killing spree. You’re far more likely to be attacked by someone who isn’t suffering from a mental disorder.”
