This sickens me to comment on yet another preventable tragedy. Yet, if a person called the police in your city and said "I am hearing voices and someone is sending vibrations to me via a microwave machine" ... what would the police do? Would they just walk away making 'crazy jokes' as they left? Or would they call for a medical professional to come evaluate the person to see if perhaps they could take him to a "hospital".
They would if he was having a heart attack!
When are we going to learn that a break in the brain, is no different than a malfunction of the heart? And what if the person experiencing acute psychosis was afraid or was too paranoid to go for help, 'even' if it was offered? What would happen if this took place in Lexington, KY today? What if you go to work tomorrow and a person having a psychiatric break -- was not treated as a medial emergency? What if he or she found he or herself a gun? It is time for the average tax paying citizen to call their legislators and congressman or women -- to demand state and federal change!
It is time for the public to say, NO MORE ...
