The brother of Michael Brandon Hill speaks exclusively to Piers Morgan

Roughly two days since 20-year-old Michael Brandon Hill opened fire in a Georgia elementary school, on Thursday evening the shooter's brother joined Piers Morgan for a live interview.

Seated across from the "Piers Morgan Live" host, Timothy Hill spoke of life growing up with his sibling, including details of the time their mother awoke with the boy he knows as "Brandon" standing above her, clutching a butcher's knife:

"It just changed from there," Hill told Morgan. "They [his parents] didn't keep knives in the house no [sic] more."

Watch the above clip as Hill goes on to share additional tales from his brother's troubled youth, including an attempt to set their home on fire, as well as deadly threats issued via social media.

    Pierce Morgan is an absolute idiot, his interview skills and bias is frustrating. I like watching a majority if the programming on CNN....but this guy turns me off so much, I find myself yelling at the TV screen. Which makes me an idiot.

    Mental health is the problem. Movies songs. do you think the 13 year old that was beat on the bus feels anger? You know it. No one helped him he was a lone on that bus. All our white guys in school are a lone. I heard the parents fear the other blacks so they won't say any thing. Obama didn't call the parents of the 13 year.

    An amendment to a bill that would have offered insurance to children with autism has been deleted, dashing the hopes of advocates who had been lobbying for the idea.

    Last week, the Senate unanimously approved an amendment to a House bill that would include coverage for children under the Oklahoma Health Insurance High Risk Pool.

    The pool was created by the Legislature in 1995 to provide insurance to residents unable to get individual coverage. Participants still pay a premium.

    Two bills, one from the House and one from the Senate, sought to create a state license for certified behavior analysts and increase training for therapists who would evaluate and diagnose autism-spectrum disorders.

    Because there were two versions of the bill, it went to conference committee of House and Senate members. When the bill was sent back to the Senate for approval, an amendment to offer insurance was removed.

    ,,,,, " It is a very improbable supposition that any people can long remain free , with a strong military power in the very heart of their country; Unless that military power is under the direction of the people , and even then it is dangerous. History , both ancient and modern, affords many instances of the overthrow of states and kingdoms by the power of soldiers , who were rais'd and maintain'd at first, under the plausible pretense of defending those very liberties which they afterwards destroyed " Samuel Adams

    Thank you Timmy Hill...for speaking out. You were too polite to say it so I will: Our so called mental health system is a joke. Often the families of the severely mentally ill are screaming for help but all they get is the runaround because there is nothing anyone can do. Our current laws have tied everyone's hands. It is like a nightmare where you are on the railroad tracks and the train is coming but you can not move. Nothing can be done until AFTER a tragedy has occurred.

      If you listen carefully, there are some facts that were mentioned that indicate there may have been family issues we aren't being told about. Add the psychiatric drugs and you really have a mess.

    I waited for Pierz to get to the cause of the problem. I sense he tried but was unable to draw it from his interviewees. As a journalist he needed to walk the line.
    I believe he could have drawn it out. Someone must champion the cause for Mental Illness in this country. A mother of a child with a mental illness, I understand the system that prevents us from helping those we love. The system is broken. When will people carry the torch for people with mental illness in family and friends, the way we do for animals and plants? Who will have the courage to ask the hard questions? To be proactive so violent tragedies don't happen...instead of reacting when they do.

    More energy is put into gun control and crisis training than mental illness treatment and understanding. Which is why we get the results we do. Why don't we fix what is broken so pain and anger can be converted to prevention? Let's understand chemical help for brain disorders along with acceptance. Compassionate acceptance.

    Simple yet complex solutions are so much easier than reacting with pain when something happens. Our system is broke. Carry the torch Pierz. Someone has to....

    The psychiatrists caused makes me laugh that nobody points out the fact that every single shooter was on psychiatric drugs.they give you homicidal and suicidal urges.i know i had them trying to get off prozac.its a joke.go and look at Dr Peter Breggins videos on pantidepressants and violence.lokok for Dr Ann Blake Trcays stuff.seach fot the fda heraing for prozac in 91.its a total joke that it still happen.psychiatrists cause these murders by giving people highly toxic poisons.then blame the patient.the mental jhealth epidemic is THEIR fault.listen to this started when they swapped his meds and changed dosage.any change or abropt stopping of these drugs cause total mayhem in the brain.they turn calm people into psychos.why wouldnt they?they have the exact same action in the brain on the exact same neurotransmitters as illiegal drugs like pcp,lsd,ecstacy,crack,meth.they work in the exact same whats the difference?the difference is Big Pharma is making billions from the sale of drugs and psychiatry are the dealers.

      You are absolutely correct that psych drugs which cause (temporary functional) brain damage are the CAUSE of the epidemic of mental issues in this country...I wonder when the sheeple will see the obvious! Obviously, mainstream media won't talk about this given that a big chunk of their revenue comes from Big Pharma.

    ....the brother is not mad at all the, police , doctors, and others that didn't do their job in protecting him , the brother or family, or the black children that this white man was going to murder, but he was mad at the President Obama, for thanking the woman who reverted the tragedy?...hmmm, I think that there was some other "hate " problems going on in this house that create his brother the monster....Once again the present gun laws, allow a completely crazy individual to get all the guns they need...
