← 'Psycho killer'? The Jared Lee Loughner case brings out the usual abuse

Does that mean it should not be pointed out in the cases where they do?

No, but it should immediately afterwards be equally strongly pointed out that this does not imply that more than a fraction of people with problems are violent. Of course, the media don't like doing this, because it ruins a good scare story.
