The allegations about the anthrax suspect and his interaction with mental health professionals raise several questions:
- Why would a top bioterror expert go to a fresh-out-of-school sociologist, a group addiction counselor, as opposed to an experience psychiatrist or psychologist? Why would he talk about homicidal tendencies in a group counseling session, as opposed to a private session?
- How could someone committed to a mental institution on the basis that he was a likely mass murderer and a danger to himself and others simply “sign himself out” of the mental institution?
- Why was a newly certified group addiction counselor who herself has a history of battery, drugs, DUIs and bankruptcies  fully briefed  on one of the most sensitive criminal investigations in history?
- If he really did confess to homicidal tendencies, why would mental health professionals wait 8 days after he signed himself out of the psych ward before obtaining a restraining order against him or re-committing him to the psych hospital  (this guy was a top a bioweapons expert and supposedly a homicidal maniac, so he could easily murder the group counselor and others)?
