I am the mother of Roger who was holding the people hostage in the Belair Rd incident. This is another instance of the system failing the mentally ill. My son was diagnosed approximately 12 years ago with Bi-Polar. He is actually dually diagnosed (mental illness and substance abuse issues, which is very common with Bi-Polar patients. He has been arrested numerous times for minor incidents over the years and has been hospitalized numerous times. During these times he was always under the influence of some substance or other which is a symptom of his illness-to self medicate due to the inability to buy the meds he needs. Since the age of 18 no one in the system, courts, has ever addressed the issue of substance abuse. Many times over the years someone could have sentenced him to a long term environment where he could have gotten the long term help that he desperately needs. Last X-Mas , as I sat by his bed, when he tried to commit suicide once again, I begged the doctors to keep him. One doctor stated we will get him the help he needs but 9days later when they couldn't find a "free bed" for him they cut him lose, deeming him magically cured enoughto leave the hospital. I knew it was only a matter of time before he tried again. Wednesday night he tried again. The police and ambulance were called to a house in Dundalk. They stated to the home owner that he was just faking and it wasn't serious. They further took the remaining bottle of pills and left after telling her that if she continued to keep him in her house she would be responsible for him. My question is why in God's name did they not take him to a hospital RIGHT THEN for further abservation? If they had done this Thrusday's incident would have been prevented. How many more times does this have to happen? How many innocent people have to be tramutized? It's not just the victims who are harmed but also the families of the patients who commit these acts. I spent 11 hours at the command site reliving my son's life from birth to the present situation wondering is this going to be the last day of his life and it all could have been prevented if someone in the system had cared enough to look behind his past behavior and see this man desperately needed help.I pray that this time someone who reads this will finally give him the help he needs and not just another jail cell where he'll spend years deteriorating more and more suicide attempts will follow.
