The city’s population of mentally deranged street people may explode because of new regulations signed by Gov. Cuomo last week that forbid privately run adult homes from accepting new residents, advocates warned.
“Hospitals can’t discharge to us,” said Jeffrey Edelman, who runs adult homes in Queens and The Bronx. “Within a week, the hospitals will be starting to get backed up, and they are going to have big problems.”

They will be on the streets. There will be more shootings and stabbings. The media will not link the increased violence to this stupid action.
Cuomo is at least making his presidential run in 2016 harder w this garbage.
The “inclusion” concept is being inserted into all elements of society by the progressives. To be “fair” to the person with issues, the must be inserted into the community without restriction or control. Great for the schizo but not so great for the hundreds who now need to suffer from the presence of a deranged one.
“court ruling that found institutionalizing the mentally ill in adult homes wrongly segregates them.”
Apparently having them sleep in a 7-11 parking lot is better?
What idiots do we have in the courts. If they are a harm to others they need to be segregated.
Sounds like the federal court judge at least has to share the blame, if not take it entirely. Cuomo is adjusting things so as to be in compliance with court orders, according to the news report.
Gee, I thought mental healthcare was going to be a priority vis-a-vis gun tragedies. I guess they meant mental healthcare unless somebody has to lift a finger or spend a dime.
And just try to get a booth at Denny's after 10:00pm after this goes into effect. Good thing the governor is looking out for the people after the Sandy Hook shooting.
When they start slashing people Cuomo will be back to demand knife bans.
Psychos are pushing people onto subway tracks faster than popcorn off a hot plate (among other things) and of course this is the typical liberal response: Do something completely illogical because the arrogant leftist agenda of trashing the constitution is more important.
I have to look at the sunny side of this stupidity...The more bad things that happen to New Yorkers, the sooner they may relate them with their ignorant government.
Not fair to the psych patient either. They will end up freezing to death, homeless.
The reason that the media ‘discovered’ the homeless and blamed Reagan for them is that his governorship coincided with a big push by the ACLU and similar meddlers for the de-institutionalization of vast numbers of psychiatric patients, who were to placed in ‘community care’ settings, AKA group homes. Of course, nowhere near enough ‘community care’ beds were available, so they ended up going off of their meds and pushing shopping carts. (Remember when that was a big lib thing - let’s buy the homeless shopping carts?)
Now Cuomo wants to eliminate whatever vestige remained of ‘community care’. How compassionate! You are now free to be consumed by your inner demons and die a lonely death on the street.
When the revolution comes, may God have mercy on these scum politicians, ‘cause I won’t.
Unfortunately, urban liberals are so far gone that their only reaction bad news of any sort is that they need the government to fix it. Even if the government is the problem.
I live here - i know!
Whether it is violence, poverty or crime you will find liberals’ fingerprints all over it as a major contributing factor.
They want to take our guns but they won’t attack the real problems, one being the mentally ill on the streets. We have a young kidney transplant patient who had a very tramatic year. He and his sister were taken from their mother because she lost her job and their apartment. He was put in a group home with delinquents who bullied and threatened him. His sister was put in foster care. He is back with his mom now but in and out of pyc hospital and on pyc meds - prozac. He becomes violent and hits walls with his fists. They will only keep in the hospital a few days at a time. In other words, he can’t get any REAL help. He is a good boy who, because of the screwed up health system, may have a bad ending. I get livid when I think about liberal hyprocrites who are the base cause of all this.
Perhaps it’s all about setting up conditions for the civil disorder Obama needs to enact martial law.
NY has a certifiable lunatic running hteir state- And they are just goign to sit back and let that lunatic make rules, laws and mandates in their state?
Sounds like the hospital should discharge them to the home of the closest Federal Judge.
[[Cuomo is at least making his presidential run in 2016 harder w this garbage.]]
I disagree- he’s probably cementing his base and indwependents with his assinien lunatic leftist ideals- America spokel oud and clear that they don’t give a damn abotu right and wrogn as long as the govenrment promisses freebies, they will vote for anything- they just probved that by reelectign htem ost anti-american [person this coutnry coudl have ever elected- the more anti-american a person is, them ore of a chance they will stand i nthe next election- IF kkkuomo doesn’t win- we’ll mostl ikely have Christie who basicallt is kkkuomo JR.
Cuomo is breeding the next faux crisis.
create the problem, offer the solution.
Tax those rich people earning more than twenty thousand (20,000) per year.
[[because of the screwed up health system, may have a bad ending. I get livid when I think about liberal hyprocrites who are the base cause of all this.]]
Adn the thing that is most infuriating is when the vp or his highness or some other liberal creep stands up when speakign abotu gun contriol and saying ‘If we can save only just one life, isn’t thatm ore precious than beign a lackey of the NRA’?
Think of how many l;ives these hypocrites could save if they actually gave a crap abotu savign lives- The left is so full of crap that you can smell them a mile away, but sadly america apaprently loves the stench- hence the reelection- We are abotu to becoem a socialist nation where truth and facts don’t matter anymore- where opposition to his higness’ decrees means sedition, where evil reigns and truth gets beaten to a pulp-
homeless shelters are an excellent source of fraudulent votes.
Homeless are registered to vote there, the vote absentee, nobody can find out how many are fake.
The population of mentally deranged people has already expanded ... to the Governor’s mansion.
[[The more bad things that happen to New Yorkers, the sooner they may relate them with their ignorant government.]]
I don’t hold outm uch hope- look at cali- Mass, LA etc- the worse thigns get, the more the peopel cower in those states- thjey just don’t get it- it appears they are incapable of getting it- unfortunately- these cities are lsot-
[[Not fair to the psych patient either. They will end up freezing to death, homeless]]
But by golly, if we can ‘save just one life by banning guns’ then who cares how many peopel freeze to death? (of course the stats won’t declare how many peopel DIED at hte hands of gunmen criminals who wouldn’t have died IF they had had a gun to protect themselves- all we’ll see are the stats that claim lvies were saved because a gun wasn’t present’)
[[may God have mercy on these scum politicians, cause I wont.]]
I beleive god is removign His blessings and turnign His face fro mthsi coutnry-
Actually leftists are full of bull s—— and nothing else. They have all these so called programs to help people but the programs do nothing for the betterment of people. The only betterment comes from giving some liberal, lazy slob a job with the government. The leftists/socialists love to list a long list of benefits they provide but it’s mostly crap. Believe me, I have tried to help patients with government programs - not much luck. The only time we get help is from the private sector and Christian organizations - the very people the liberal idiots hate worse than conservatives.
>Cuomo is breeding the next faux crisis.
create the problem, offer the solution.<
Of course, Cloward-Piven. Let me guess, that future solution will entail...wait for it, gun control.
[[The leftists/socialists love to list a long list of benefits they provide but its mostly crap. Believe me,]]
I do beleive you- They are so full of crap it’s comign otu hteir ears- I jsut do NOT udnerstand how America has fallen for the obvious BS though- America eitherm ust be udner a powerful delusion (such as the bible talks about in teh end times) OR, they KNOW the truth but simply just flat out reject it because truth involves TRUE sacrifice, while evil they think invovled free stuff for them- the left is abotu promissing free stuff, gettign hte votes, then renegging on thta promise, and actually takign the extra money thwey colected in higher taxes o nthe promise that the money woudl go to the free stuff, and keepign hte money for themselves-
Sure, they dole out soem money, but ONLY to keep the peopel dependent and ignorant
Cuomo’s father shut down many of the psych centers in the state when he was Governor. The residents were tossed out on the street, and were supposed to receive out-patient treatment. The result was an increase in crime that overloaded the state’s prison system. During the mid 80’s, a large number of old psych centers were turned into prisons, and towards the end of that decade, new cookie-cutter prisons were being built as well. Because of overcrowding, back in ‘88-89, several of the newly constructed prisons ended up with inmates bunking in the gym buildings. At one time, there were over 50 correctional facilities in the state. When I retired in 2003, the number of inmates with psychiatric problems in the prison system had increased so much they had to set aside specific buildings in prisons throughout the state to just house the mentally ill.
At one time NY State used to keep dangerous criminals behind bars even if they'd finished serving their sentence. They had special facilities for them. One was Matteawan State Hospital. Back in the early 60's, the State was sued, and the court's decreed that it wasn't a crime to be crazy, and ordered the release of all those dangerous criminals. NY has a long history of putting dangerous people back on the street.
