They didn’t deny him because they thought he was sane. It was because they thought he was unsafe:[1]

A Columbine-obsessed Pennsylvania teen accused of stabbing 21 people at his high school in April was has been refused admission to up to eight Pittsburgh-area psychiatric hospitals, a rep for his family said.

A judge revealed on Tuesday the most recent hospital did so out of safety concerns.

Alex Hribal, who was 16 at the time of the stabbings, has been held in juvenile detention since he was arrested on April 9 at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.

Southwood subsequently said it was unable to accommodate Hribal, according to a statement issued by the judge.

‘Southwood has security concerns,’ Feliciani said in the statement. ‘Counsel for defendant is investigating other options. If a facility is approved, the defendant will be transferred. The court order remains in effect,’ Feliciani said.

Before Southwood’s decision, seven or eight other mental health facilities denied admission to the teenager, said Bruce Chambers, a forensic psychologist hired by Hribal’s defense team to evaluate him.

‘Because of the high-profile nature of the case and some of the misconceptions of his mental illness, some places are not wanting to take him,’ said Chambers, who is in private practice in Cranberry, Pennsylvania.

No, I think it was probably all the stabbings.

What do you think it was?
