    I don't know anything about this woman, but I'm sure she'll have her private life wrung out on national television for all to see. If it happens that she was under psychiatric care of some sort, if it was known that she was hearing/seeing/feeling things abnormally but wasn't getting the proper treatment, then this may actually be a matter of concern with the mental health system. But just like not every heart attack or stroke is preventable or predictable, not every mental breakdown is preventable or predictable.

And finally, yes, this thread thus far has been hackness at its finest with a toss of race baiting too. So yes, have fun with your silly little political games while ignoring the bigger picture.
    Ignoring the bigger picture? On DP? You're joking...

    That is true, this could have been her first real breakdown/episode in which case it seems to have been a pretty bad one. At the same time though her saying she thought the President was following her is kind of crazy honestly and if this was her first episode then maybe her friends/family didn't know the signs. I have also been around mental issues a few times (my dad's side has some mental issues and I lost my best friend to some as well) so maybe I just notice things more than people who haven't been around it. My post was mostly just at the frustration that there is a legitimate issue here, but the first two pages are all political cheap shots.

    I never joke. Joy has been killed the past year. Law school and Bruins losing in the Stanley Cup to god damn Chicago. If the Sox get swept by Tampa I will be completely dead inside.

    She looks like somebody who was in the Psych ward at the same time I was. Probably not, because she's not from Minnesota.

    I appreciate those thoughts and would simply say that often, in events that aren't easily explained, we resort to humor and the familiar to avoid uncomfortable questions.

    I know of lots of healthy, young people who've died from heart attacks and strokes while out jogging - seems someone dies in the Boston and New York marathons every year from heart attack or stroke. So no, not all tragic events are predictable or preventable.
