Our expert says:
Well, God can answer for Himself, but schizophrenia is about as real as any illness can be, and a very serious, painful and unpleasant illness, and on that can sometimes be extremely difficult to treat. I don't believe God punishes people for being ill.
People with schizophrenia are VERY rarely violent, it's just a bit more frightening when they are, as their motives for violence may be much harder to understand than with the far commoner violence by ordinary people. Generally, they respond well to modern treatments. If this woman was not taking her meds, I'm surprised if there was no proper follow-up by the hospital after discharge, including, if she had ever been unreliable about taking meds, the delivery of her meds to her by an injection which can last a month.
