be prepared for those who know nothing about the situation to tell you how bad you are for having an issue with this "handicapped" person.

How in the hell does he get a va check when all he's been is worthless. He lost his leg bc of a motorcycle gang. Wearing a bells angel patch in a pagan bar. He's always been a druggie. Everyone thinks he's a vet but he not. I live in Stanaford and wheels his but up my road every other day and somehow is always drunk. I could care less bout him.

His mother and family have nothing to do with him...his Mom is very old and cannot handle him...go after the people he lives with or rents a room with I bet they are over his benefits...he was in the military when he was real young...the Marines. His daughter was adopted by another man...he does need help...but you cannot force a person to get gelp.

YOU PEOPLE LEAVE ROGER ALONE!
Roger is an angel! Sure he's a drunk and shuffles around town bumming money but so what! He earned it! Roger lost his leg in Vietnam fighting the Vietcong on the me-kong delta. He was on a 12mile security hump and was engaged in a firefight. At one point an enemy lobbed a grenade at his platoon and roger, without hesitation, kicked it. KABLOOM! As soon as he kicked it it blew and off goes his leg. He continues to fight for 6 more hours and used a enemy shirt as a tourniquet. He was credited with saving 8 marines and killing 5 enemy. He got all kinds of medals for that battle. Years later he thought drinking away his problems would help. It didnt. Take your time to listen to ol Roger and maybe even thank him.

If anyone wants to do something about this situation, go tell someone at the circuit clerk's office that you need to file a mental hygiene petition. If Raleigh County doesn't have a mental hygiene commissioner, a designated magistrate or circuit judge will review the petition and order a sheriff to take this person into custody.

After evaluation at a mental health facility, if the psychologist certifies him as being a risk to himself and others, there'll be a court hearing with testimony from your side and his. He'll have attorney representation.

If the court determines that there's enough evidence to create "probable cause" that he presents a risk of physical harm to himself or others, he'll be committed for treatment.

This would also clear up whether the person is a veteran, or not, and, if he is, get him into the VA's mental health system, if he isn't already, and possibly get him off the streets for a while, and maybe for even longer.

It might prove to be a revolving door, but, if so, hopefully someone can remain connected to the problem and have enough stamina to stay on top of it and keep pushing the door back opened.
