The mentally ill are occasionally dangerous,and are always a pain in the ass.The Liberals who support these facilities in other peoples' neighborhoods would NEVER allow it in their backyard.Might adversely affect property values,you know.

i dont blame them. i wouldnt want this in my back yard either. i've seen what group homes accomplish and that is next nothing. they are used by families to dump their problem family member on someone and someplace else. the family doesnt visit their mentally ill relative and when the group home decides they dont feel like dealing with one of their clients any more they call the police and try to get them eval'ed....how do they expect the person to act.....they are mentally ill and should not be in a home setting. we need state mental hospitals brought back but managed correctly with respectful and correct care. if you could visit many of the group homes in randallstown/milford mill/woodlawn you will see that they are not much more than a "puppy mill" for the mentally ill. poor care is provided to clients with serious deviant sexual and physical behavior. i dont have all the answers but i know my answer would be dont put that nonsense in my backyard also.

why is it that you cant argue against anything anymore without DISCRIMINATION being the first thing the other side throws out. maybe the person who wrote this opinion in the Sun should have these mentally ill folks live in there house. im sure the state would be happy to provide some poorly educated, possibly certified care providers to help them care for the people.
