Doctor-patient priveledgse should not extend to the point where a patient is in danger of killing others. But it has to be THE DOCTOR who is smart enough to know.
She could have had him involuntarily committed as a danger to himself or others. I am not even a doctor and I had it done to my brother
This is not like a confessional and priest - which IS sacred. But even a priest can point out who is dangerous to the police without reveling what was said.
In recent months I have heard many professionals on various talk shows describe how hard it is to get someone committed. The liberals have screwed that up to the point where it is almost impossible until violent crimes are committed. They can hold them for a day or so then have to release them. We can thank the liberals for this problem as well as the homeless problem.
So you had someone involuntarily committed, and it was really easy? Was this recently?
