Yep -- here ya go:

Page 4, Question 11.f. explained...

The key word here is "adjudicated".... i.e. "[determined] by a court, board, commission, or other lawful authority..."

Covers it fairly well. If the states would do their bit, it might do some good in terms of prevention.

But the bottom line is that in a country with 300 m. people, and a world with however-many billions, there will always be some who do evil.

Actually, no. Those are all labels, and code numbers, taken from the DSM-IV, otherwise known as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (my emphasis), which is published by the American Psychiatric Association.

But see what I wrote above about the physical/mental distinction not being all that useful here...
