Very glad the stabber is dead? A good possibility of mental illness:

“We don’t know his motivations,” Loc Travers, another police union official, told reporters near the Police Headquarters on Thursday. “It’s obviously someone who blew his top.”

How do you figure? Do you assume all violent crimes committed without immediately apparent motive indicate "a good possibility of mental illness"?

It might be the expression of a new malaise at the heart of the police, like this wave of suicides, Denis Jacob, a police union official, told French television on Thursday after the attack.

Or maybe a cri de coeur.

The stories I have seen on TV say that he had long-standing problems with his supervisor, and the supervisor was the first victim.
