Okay I’m going to say it, but the fact is some people just can’t be helped and no matter how much we love them they aren’t going to get better in fact some times they get worse and we blindly close our eyes in the name of love and put ourselves or others at risk. I wouldn’t want this young man Sky Walker attending school with any of my children with his violent tendencies or “meltdowns” and apparently this had happened before since there was a “secret code” for the school. Whether as a society we like it or not some people just need to be institutionalized and some for life. Instead of trying to make these people fit and then find they don’t take their meds and end up homeless and victims of unscrupulous people or they are violent themselves and harm others we need to find safe, secure institutions for them. We have become a society that everyone fits, well some just don’t they are sick! I would rather go and visit my love one in an institution then in a penitentiary or grave site. Although I understand Trudy’s love, it blinded her to her son and instead of going every day if she wanted to visit him in a secure environment, he’s still going to be sent away and Trudy isn’t there to visit him and he probably doesn’t even know why? How sad…..
