I think the situation is sad but im not surprised by the outcome. And it seems that her mental illness may have been the cause behind her death. I agree that this country continues to turn a blind eye to mental illness until something happens. I mean when you think about it we see commercials on tv for ppl in need of help tackling cancer, alcoholism, drugs, hell even sexual dysfunction but you never hear these type of campaigns for mental health and awareness. Even worse is that its not something that is given enough attention in the AA community.

Same thing with the Navy yard shooting.  I really hate that he had to die instead of getting help but there really is no other choice in a situation like this.   So many missed opportunities inside their community before they go outside of it an hurt other people.   The families can't get them help for more that 72 hours.   Couldn't even get that baby away from her unless they could get her committed long term.   Its heartbreaking. 

I don't blame the way they responded because there was no reasoning with her and she put many lives in danger.   That was clear from the video when she just sped away with all those officers surrounding her.   I just wish there was a protocol for how to handle people who show up like that.   Like take them to a "waiting room" or something and play along until someone comes to get them.   There really was no way to get her out of the car though, that was the Whitehouse and she could have been anyone.   Its just really unfortunate all around. 

I have two female cousins who behave this way off meds.  It scares me to death.

I think we should build more facilities for the mentally ill and keep them there.  Mixing with society when off their meds is such a gamble with innocent livesCry
