ACLU Defeats Connecticut Assisted Outpatient Treatment" Law Months Before Massacre
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 12-16-2012 | MOTUS

(snip)Connecticut is one of only SIX states in the U.S. that doesn’t have a type of “assisted outpatient treatment” (AOT) law (sometimes referred to as “involuntary outpatient treatment”). There’s no one standard for these types of laws, but (roughly speaking) these are laws that allow for people with mental illness to be forcibly treated BEFORE they commit a serious crime.(snip)

Apparently far left groups (the ACLU filing against the law here) defeated a Connecticut mental health protections law just months before the Newtown shootings. Their primary concern being that the proposed law would “severely curtail the privacy rights and liberty issues of people with psychiatric disabilities.”

Disabilities?” That’s a nice politically correct term. Unfortunately nobody on the ACLU staff addressed the severe curtailment of the privacy rights and liberties of the victims of a person suffering from one of these “dangerous disabilities.”(snip)

In other news: Hillary Clinton will be unable to testify on the Benghazi affair this week since apparently she fell down and broke her crown.

I honestly have no answer to your question. There are people in this country who think that people with mental problems should not be taking meds.

This goes beyond narcissism and into the realm of lunacy, no pun intended.

I have an associate with a daughter, who will never be emotionally stable. About every three to four years...the doctor comes out with a new drug that they feel will help improve her stability. So they begin the treatment, with an estimate on her amount. For an entire month....the drug will trip her up and trigger various ‘fits’, so she takes a blood test and eventually is given a different amount. After three or four months...they finally get to the right amount, and she’s stable for the next three years....until the next drug comes out and they repeat the whole process.

The family has to be part of the daily drug routine...she has to take the drug in front of someone and they have to monitor her. She’s thirty years old.

You can figure the amount of attention this requires and the years left that both husband and wife have to invest into this daughter. When they pass to an age of limited ability....they will put her into some facility. Currently no facility will take her because of police reports where she went kind of nuts and was totally out of control (that was ten years ago, but the reports linger).

The system is screwed up, and there are tens of thousands of people out this state of mind. We as a nation....are inviting a zombie-like situation to brew up. If the makers of these drugs ever halt production for a month or two....the whole nation would be facing thousands nuts.
