New York City Mayor Eric Adams has expanded the city’s ability to address the problem of mentally unstable residents, expanding the guidelines for what behaviors justify involuntary commitment.
“If severe mental illness is causing someone to be unsheltered and a danger to themselves, we have a moral obligation to help them get the treatment and care they need,” Adams said Tuesday in announcing the change.
City workers had previously been instructed to limit the involuntary commitment program, known as Kendra’s Law, only to people who presented an imminent threat to themselves or to others. more
At least half of NYC is mentally ill
Last time I looked, violently mentally ill is a prerequisite for a DNC leadership position.
But what about the Subway🚇 Pizza🍕 Rats🐀, they have right you know!💥
actually all of nyc is mentally ill the only question is to what degree are they mentally ill. Would it be wrong to hope and pray a meteorite strikes NYC and sinks it into the Atlantic?
What’s he gonna do? Lock down the whole damned town. You’ve got to be nuckin’ futz to live there in the first place.
I don’t necessarily have a problem with these actions, although I have zero trust in those doing it. Here in Santa Monica area (I am visiting) I see daily posts about homeless people randomly attacking innocent people. Something has to be done.
Of course it’s trying to stop the flow of a wound that should never have happened in the first place, like most other parts of the country.
So this is how ‘Escape from New York’ begins…
OldCoot – More right than wrong!
How many times have we seen the Left accuse Conservatives of being crazy terrorists?
Leaving the definition of “mentally ill” up to Left is risky bidness!!
Too bad the state hospitals were closed. Now they will have to live in 5-star hotels with illegals.
Maybe someone could weld the doors closed. Where have I heard that before?
Of course, these idjits think anyone wearing a red baseball cap is mentally ill…
Not going to be much of a remedy unless they start at city hall.
