    I would try to explain it, but it would be pointless for me to waste my time doing so. If you are really interested you can review my posts from today where that very topic has been addressed.

    the "real" problem is multifaceted... but i do know it has nothign to do with a flag.
    So....you are 'stangs puppet?

    sorry, that's not a valid response.

    Yours was never a valid understanding of who I originally was talking to.

    Posts 126, 127, and 128 all in a row. Tell me Gimmesometruth, just how could there be "2 who can't state what "the real ****ing problem" is when only one poster responded to your post to me by the time you said this?

    Anyways, here's a few suggestions from the top of my head.

    1: Don't give drugs out that can cause psychotic breaks, hallucinations, etc etc.
    2: Expand our mental health capabilities (ex: able to keep actual mentally deranged dangerous people in mental hospitals) and hospitals.
    3: Expand our knowledge base into WHY these people act the way that they act and treat accordingly instead of just half assing it.
    4: Get rid of the negative mentality associated with snitching. Get people pro-active on letting proper authorities know of possible mental health problems with people that they know.
    5: Educate people so that they can do #4 properly.
    6: Get rid of the stigma associated with seeking mental health help.

    This guy was an obvious candidate for a mental health institution considering the drugs that they had him on. For all we know that is exactly why he thought the way that he did.

    Yeah...it was DRUGS....and MENTAL ISSUES....because, after all, we have your expertise in evaluating mental health....and you did a drug test.

    The only one you are even close on is:

    Expand our knowledge base into WHY these people act the way that they act and treat accordingly instead of just half assing it.

    But it is dealing with folks who hold to racial intolerance, you know, like those that like to parade around with political paraphernalia associated with racist ideology.

    So you deny that he was on a drug which sometimes has a side effect of psychotic breaks and that he was on that drug due to mental health issues?

    So you don't think that we should do 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6? Why? Why are you against not giving mental patients drugs which can cause psychotic breaks? Why are you against expanding our mental health capabilities? Why are you against getting people pro-active in reporting people that they know with mental health issues? Why are you against educating the people to help them recognize those with mental health issues? And why are you against getting rid of the stigma associated with getting mental health treatment?

    So you want to limit free speech and blame inanimate objects instead of actually addressing the real ****ing problem. Gotcha.
