Blackwater knows how to deal with people that may / or may not pose a potential threat.

Why is this man still alive?

They don't seem to even really be sure how many hostages are inside, they just said one more was released. His family said he had been drinking for at least 72 hours.

He was placed with a cell mate despite his demands to be in solitary. That night, he killed his cell mate by bashing his head into the wall.

A lot of people like that get lost in our system.


That's very sad.

I just watched him get arrested, it's over

Now let's hope that guy gets the help he needs.

Well the information I got and 2861U2 too, I presume came from Fox News.

We know if you want to get the truth on anything Clinton related - Fox News is the one to trust.

It shouldn't be like this.
Wonder who he's talked to or where he went trying to get help.
Who turned this man away because he didn't have insurance or he wasn't considered crazy enough.
Guess he is now..

Yeesh. That's scary. Why did he get put with somebody even after it was made clear that he shouldn't have been around other people?

The whole thing's over now, though, and nobody was hurt or killed, so thank god for that. Here's hoping the guy is dealt with in the appropriate manner and that, as U2democrat said, he gets the help he needs. Very frightening.

that he gave to Mr Hsu.

Once I heard (this morning) he was basically trying in a misguided, but possibly desperate attempt to get better help- and really trying not to hurt anyone physically [obviously psychologically is something else]........ I thought the kind of things you, did sue4.
People can't always even get help in a big city like NYC, think of a small town area.

Most people living with mental illness are not any more violence-prone than people without MI's.
But it's hard to counter the perception when the sensational and horrible cases [as ani cited] DO occur. Then the tabloids run to town with it.

I'm very glad no one was phydically harmed.
