Re: You have to be kidding me "KNAPPer"???? More Politics??? Let it go man.
That sounds more like by golly and by gosh reasoning, at best. Your education seems very shallow I doubt you have experienced dealing with seriously mentally ill people and these state institutions. It is not so easy to get people committed, it must be taken through a court of law, police may be able to temporarily commit people for a few days of "observation", but doctors have legal liabilities and many do not wish to stick their neck out. Parents may be able to have a underage child hospitalized, but once they are of age parents no longer have that right. Talk to a lawyer, I know how difficult it was for some relatives to attempt to save their daughter, they did not get any help from the state to pay for her funeral either.
