What was this? A publicity stunt? Anyone else would probably be arrested for this.

Hardly a publicity stunt. A publicity stunt requires someone to have something they want to publicize, a TV show for example. This man had/has psychological problems and was ready to end his life. This was a cry for help. I hope he gets some.

This guy was not arrested because his family member is a magistrate. There should not have been all of these untrained people out searching for an unstable man with a gun.

none of you guys know the hwole story, yes his family member is a worker for the magisterate office, but no she had nothign to do with anything. She was more worried abotu what was going on in the family, yes he was addmitted to the hospital & anyone who had done so should have to. Its not that there was "alot " of money put into this, because the people who looked for him, was basically family, who was concerned abotu the family member, & the law, who in which is AREQUIRED to do so, just as if there was a missing child, an adult should be looked for to. No One person is stable 24/7, everyone has there moments, you people shouldnt worry abotu him and his family & stick your nose in something that had nothign to do with you & talk badly of him. & what his wife did is none of your business. if anything you should respect her for giving him the rights to both his children. Hes the one that takes care of them in the first place, she refuced to keep a job & stayed drunk all the time because she wants to be a child herself instead of a motherly figure. let him be a father figure and do whats best, because i know if my spouse would be "skippin" out on me, id lose my state of mind for a day or two & become stable & realzie that their is better.
o you guys need to get a life, stop living in the "hear say" & get the truths before you go starting stuff. This MAN is a great person, along with his family. let him be at peace & live his life with his children And be happy and live a normal life that they all deserve. Don't worry about him, worry about praying for his mother who was severaly burnt by grease fire and who is still recovering, shes the one that needs people to pray & worry about her, not him & his son & daughter.

I am not real sure this man should be allowed to have custody of 2 children. When he was found he was setting in Hardees eating with a loaded gun, had a standoff with police a month earlier. I just hope that CPS is doing their job and keeping a check on the safety of the children. I know people that has been cheated on, they were stable enough to make it through it without turning to violence, or false suicide attempts.
