"I want to kill as many people as possible" isn't specific enough or alarming enough to detain someone that had "constant homicidal thoughts" and was "on the borderline"?? Did she really believe that he was (crazy/sane) enough to tell her about specific targets or a specific plan? Why not err on the side of public safety?
