Here’s some scary news: The Cuomo administration is preparing to shove thousands of mentally ill New Yorkers out of supervised settings — where they can be forced to take their medication — into far less restrictive, far more dangerous “community housing.”
This, despite two recent cases of people being fatally shoved from subway platforms — both allegedly by crazy people.
Albany, under pressure from the Obama administration, recently ordered psychiatric facilities not to place any discharged patients in adult homes, where staff can ensure they take their meds.
Instead, they’ll be placed in “community housing,” without full-time supervision.
This is part of the state’s plan to essentially empty adult homes into community-based “supportive” apartments, leaving up to 6,000 people — including those with schizophrenia — to live on their own, with minimal supervision.
“People with disabilities should have access to community-based services, accessible housing with appropriate supports and employment opportunities,” said Cuomo in an executive order in November.
But as Pat Webdale — whose daughter Kendra was shoved to her death in 1999 by a schizophrenic who’d stopped taking his meds — has warned, “It would be just like deinstitutionalization, the same as putting people on the street.”......
In oher words, sort of the opposite of what Charles Krauthammer is recommending (lunatic control) as a partial solution to some of the problems we have with shootings...)
Does anybody here actually believe that Bork Obunga, Cuomo, or anybody else involved in this kind of **** for that matter gives a rat's ass about your safety or the safety of your family or children?
