"Media portrayals are moving away from the twitchy killer to characters more troubled and frightened than troubling and frightening," said Barbara Lurie, associate director of programs for the Entertainment Industries Council in Los Angeles. She screened clips from television dramas that offer sympathetic portrayals of mentally ill people or even turn the violent stereotype on its head: a homeless, mentally ill person is first suspected of murder, but then turns out to be a hero who leads police to the real killer.
