So it looks like the copilot responsible for that awful crash was “depressed”. Let the stigmatising of mental illness commence.

Depression is no excuse to kill 150 innocent people. The copilot was a dirt bag, and deserves to be remembered as one. #Germanwings

It’s an explanation, not an excuse.
By the way, it bears mentioning that if there were no stigmatization of mental illness, the copilot would not have felt the need to hide his condition, and could have gotten the help he needed, thus saving 150 lives. But you can bet the media won’t take that angle.
