Oopp's another human or as local officials put it mongrel has slipped through the cracks in the mental health network¿ Probably self medicating with street drugs, and a justice system that is unjust for people as such and incapable of dealing justly¿ Upon opening the doors and making these poor souls homeless sosciaties preditors have pounched on these disadvataged class of humans to steal what little they may have been givin¿

Were is the grammar police mackin and crackin on the gags/wfmz article¿

I can certainly feel your pain and anquish after reading what you wrote. You feel like lashing out on everyone involved. I don,t know why they couldn't have tazed him or shot him to incapacitate him from charging them, like shoot for the legs. I hope you can find some peace and pray for the soul of Saturnino.

First I'd like to offer you some friendly advice, one find another girlfriend, this chick comes from a line of unstable mabels. Second, the daddy dude was swinging a machete. Now how many SANE people do you know that walk down the street swinging a deadly weapon? Its OK, take your time with the answer, I can wait. Third I think your "gurlfrined" is better off being fatherless. he certainly wouldn't be up for any father of the year awards.
So, if insane in the membrane didn't get shot, exactly what would they do with him? Can't send him out into the world again, hes nuts. So, your "gurlfriend" could go visit ole insane daddy at the state hospital for the rest of his life. Its OK being a working tax payer I don't mind paying for it, its what I'm here for.

Your so ignorant and very rude. Your talking about my brother, a very kind caring, giving person and gentle person who is being misrepresented by a bunch of ignorant racist people who don't know anything but the lies they choose to follow. You don't have any right to judge or talk about things or people you don't know. I'm proud for the girlfriend speaking up.

A person was confronted by the police carrying a machete . I have one and used it to cut pine branches off trees . Can't think of any reason I would walk around carrying one on the street .

If someone called the police and objected to what I was doing and said "put the machete down" I wouldn't need to be tasered twice and shot .

Case closed . It doesn't matter what his mental state was . Should have followed orders . If he was close enough and swung the mechete an arm or a head could come off.

Mental illness used to be treated with incarceration ,a wrap in wet towels and soaked in a tub of cold water . That didn't work so they develop meds to treat all kinds of mental illness. When it isn't monitored by themselves or family they go outside of the walking normal . Grab a gun or knife and use it on whoever comes along . In Many cases the person is too far gone to know he will be shot to death .

You are remembering to forget shock treatment and removal of parts of the brain¿ Those two being the most humain, than there were the beatings and allot of other things the guards deemed appropreate when the doc was not around? I will let that to your imagination because this just added to the rapeing of the human soul and added to the problem¿ It is still happening only it is taking advantage of the disadvantaged for whatever little there poor souls have been givin¿

Ah yes , frontal lobe ,stick an ice pick through your nose to your brain and give it a few spins . Nasal radium rods inserted up your nose to relieve ongoing sinus problems . Those were the days ! My how we progressed . Now you just have to walk around outside and breath . You get more strontium 90 (being surrounded by it) in your body that should cure anything . All the cancers are caused by radiation leaking through your basement . Ah huh ,you live above the Reading prong and that's what caused it all .

They're in every town . Usually a younger crowd with anger issues . Call it retarded ,nuts or mentally challenged . The young kids get in trouble , get arrested, labeled and put on SS disability . Maybe medication but usually left on their own without any form of decent family structure . Anger builds up they get arrested again and watched .

You can lock yourself in the house or get a gun permit and make sure you're in fear of your life .This guy's family is suing and you'll be next if you run into the same situation. This wasn't any form of complying with police orders .Don't know the full story. Maybe they could have tasered the guy . I'll read about it somewhere .
