A law enforcer's experience with "Domestic Violence"



Since I was in law enforcement from early 1971 to late 2001, I saw the evolution of laws pertaining to "Domestic Violence".

You see, up until the 90's, it was semi-accepted--unless a husband or "Live-in" did a serious bodily injury to their other.

Women would complain, neighbors would call, police would respond, often resulting in an arrest of the inflicter of the injuries.  Later, again very often, the injured would refuse to sign a complaint, resulting in the release of the inflicter and no charges being filed

Usually, this was because the injured realized that the inflicter was her "Meal Ticket", or --here was a classic case: I--along with several others--were dispatched to a shooting. Husband, who is hard-core unemployed, and baby sits their children, has struck up a frequent meeting with a neighbor lady. Wife comes home early and surprises them. She rages at hubby, and keeps it up--neighbor had fled.
Hubby tells wife to shut up, like they say, Hell hath no fury.  Hubby goes to a drawer, brings out a .25 auto pistol and shoots wife--twice.

L A County Sheriffs enter the apartment, then call in L A's first Paramedics. Wife is removed on a gurney .  She is now down to street level. Hubby is brought down with a gun to his back and in handcuffs. Wife on gurney--yells repeatedly--"Don't hurt him--I love him".

The 90's arrive and this becomes an issue in California. Like most things the California legislature deals with, they do overkill.

NOW, the parties do not have to be married. All that is required is if they live together. They do not have to be of the opposite sex.

IF a Peace Officer is called to a dispute, and one party has a "Visible Injury", that Peace Officer MUST:
Arrest the other party
Offer to take the injured party to a shelter
Offer to call a judge and obtain a Restraining Order

The injured party is now not the Victim. The State is, and the prosecutor of the jurisdiction will file charges

(NOTE: IF the accused inflicter is a Police Officer, and a Restraining Order is issued--he/she can not carry or be in possession of a firearm. Consequently, his/her Department will terminate them)

Come on, Mr. Cornyn!  ENOUGH!!!!!

Humanitarian crisis..my frosted ass!  What the hell kind of manipulation game are you playing? Do you really think this canned Administration response is not transparent as it is horse manure.  What don’t you get about ILLEGAL ALIENS and the conspiracy to haul these filthy criminals into our country?  The conspiracy being carried out by servants of the public trust.

Who actually wrote this twaddle?  One of Obama’s useful idiots?  BLAH. BLAH BLAH  Sadly?  Boo hoo.  Reach in your damn overfilled pockets…open up YOUR home…put them to bed in one of your guest rooms…feed them yourself.  BUT DON’T THINK YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH INTIMIDATING, COERCING OR OTHERWISE REACHING INTO THE POCKETS OF FOLKS WHO DISAGREE WITH YOUR NONSENSE…YOUR POLITICAL MANUEVERS.  You will pay for this.  Trust me.  If not now…in the afterlife.  I guarantee that on faith alone…because YOU and YOURS stole everything else from me.

These are not even primarily children and you damn well know it.  These alleged ‘minors’ were brought in…flown in…bussed in…by those who profess to be our government and it is all being done with the dollars you stole from us to do it.  These invaders are being foisted upon our communities and our schools with all manner of disease and parasites.  Our money was used to pay for their travel and other expenses…AGAINST OUR WILL AND INSTRUCTIONS.  OUR MONEY is being used to bring in confirmed terrorists from many countries…including Muslim countries whose agenda is to crush us.  And the elephant in the room is that you and your cronies have the same agenda or it would not continue to be a problem.

You’ve been assisting in the perpetration of the lies to Texans who voted you in and all Americans who foot these bills and are being destroyed by the likes of you.  Insider trading, unauthorized use of OUR money to fund your travel and entertainment, conspiring with bankers and other countries to our detriment and working behind the scenes to prevent real Americans from taking Congressional seats and other high offices and undermining our Freedoms and Liberties to protect your sorry ass and the asses of those who have harmed us by breaking the public trust.  You have participated in legislation that makes US criminals.  You have looked the other way and done zero to stop the installation of an illegal POTUS and the illegal acts of this Muslim dirt bag.  It is YOU and your peers who have participated in the money laundering that has destroyed so many innocent people and their futures…and health.

Treacherous journey?  Alone and vulnerable?  You are full of s…t.  UNACCOMPANIED?!!!  We all know the real back story now and so do you, you lying pig.  The current illegal Administration put out a job offer to anyone willing to accompany these illegal aliens … several months before the planned surge.  This is an attack on our country and our people and every damned last one of you thieves is a traitor and enemy for perpetrating an invasion…a planned invasion into our Republic.  You know, the one you swore as a FIDUCIARY to protect and serve………..  Areas controlled by the cartels?  What about the areas in America that YOU and your cronies ceded to those filthy bastards?  Come on buddy…all we need are a few jets to strafe invaders.   All we need is to cut off the spigot.  All we need is border patrol…and our military…fully armed and at the ready with a government that is actually doing their primary job:  National Security…protecting our borders and people from enemies both foreign and domestic.  Remember that pesky oath?  HUH?!!!

This one inane and lie-filled email from you proves you are a Traitor and a liar.  Stop giving aid and comfort to illegal aliens and this ‘surge’ would stop.  Stop allowing OUR food stamps, welfare, Social Security, and hard earned assets of the American people to be handed over to these invaders and they won’t have the incentive.  YOU and the rest of the thugs and thieves in public office are providing the incentive and invitation.  Without it we would not have the invasion crisis or the constitutional crisis we are suffering today…and you also damn well know that.

Stop putting them up in hotels and other facilities and facilitating the handing over of jobs to these illegal cockroaches.  Most of them are young men…the most dangerous human refuse on the planet.  You and the rest of the filthy liars would have us believe they are all little vulnerable babies and children…and now you throw in women!  Women who come here and start pumping out third world voters for dictator wannabes … and we pay the bill because you steal from us…from our Social Security INSURANCE, Medicare and Medicaid, food stamps and even Federal tax dollars to give them tax refunds they did not earn!

This did not happen due to Obama’s failed policies alone…and you damn well know it.  This happened because our government is chock full of traitors, criminals and domestic enemies who did not do their jobs…at least not the one they are fleecing us for.  Our Congress is facilitating this fraud and theft by and through their own actions and lies like the ones on your email and through direct action and inaction.  You hold legal rights to turn this train headed for hell around and yet you do nothing but fuel it against the wishes, demands and instruction of the majority of your EMPLOYERS.  And then you make a complete and total ass out of yourself in a cowardly show of wringing your hands and whining.

WE don’t consent to housing and taking custodial care of these invaders.  If you stopped them BEFORE they entered and held their governments accountable for this invasion WE would not be listening to or reading the kind of twaddle you are peddling.  We would not see story after story of families being ruined by the rape, murder and wholesale destruction these invading cretins commit daily.  Stop the financial aid to all these countries and put them all on public notice that WE will shoot to kill anyone who puts one dirty foot across our border…through our front door, back door or window…and go to war with any country that aids, abets or encourages the invasion.  It’s real simple, Pal.  And I would not want to be in your shoes when the literal s..t hits the fan and Americans have hit their limit!

Refugees, my ass.  This is one of the primary means by which you manipulate, lie and excuse your theft of OUR assets.  Call someone a refugee and they get a handsome paycheck, housing and free food and are told by our employees to keep having babies so they can continue to steal from our State and Federal coffers…you get votes, you think.   You get kick backs from contractors.  You get campaign funds from contractors.  Meanwhile, this money is being stolen from our INSURANCE funds that WE WERE EXTORTED FROM and UNDER DIRE THREAT TO PAY FOR!  We get less jobs, lower pay and crappy jobs, companies going bust or leaving the country, expatriation of solid Americans who helped fund OUR country and build companies here, we see factories being built and funded by our tax dollars and our hard work in other countries, we see our families thrown out in the street and begging for the programs they never thought they would need while the cost to fund the safety nets was extorted from them…begging while the unentitled are fast tracked onto the welfare rolls.  We see our fresh water resources being drained and sold off to other countries and corporate cronies so they can sell it back to US!  We see real patriots being murdered and imprisoned for telling the truth and attempting to save our nation.  We see our homes and property being stolen at gunpoint by the criminals you put in office and protect…AT OUR EXPENSE, NO LESS.

These invaders put themselves and their own children at risk at the instruction of their governments and you jackasses.  They CHOOSE TO MAKE THE JOURNEY.  They leave countries that have lower living costs and ‘free’ medical care (you know, the kind you jerks are trying to fleece us for) and lower unemployment rates for the promises YOU bastards make to them.  You, buddy, allow the cartels and murderers in while you send our men and women to die in other countries…allegedly protecting them and their borders…which YOU refuse to do here.

YOU, and the rest of the dirt bags, are responsible for all of this.  CONGRESS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS.  Not some skinny, drug addled, piece of Muslim scum that was installed to be the scapegoat in exchange for all the little boys and ice cream he can ‘eat’…and the permission to act like a king and abuse every last Christian white human he can before the game is over for him….and all the riches he can skim off the top.

YOU are a sorry excuse for even the lowest of creatures…because you choose to be a liar, thief and traitor.

Go to hell…please…soon…and take all the dried up carcasses you make your dirty deals with off our backs.

Humane Act?  Really?  What kind of crap is that?  Give it a pretty name and sell that snake oil to all the nice Christians … AGAIN?  NO AMNESTY…NONE…FOR NO ONE…  REMEMBER THIS…WE THE PEOPLE WILL NOT BE OFFERING AMNESTY TO THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO DECLARE WAR UPON US AND USE US LIKE SLAVES AND SELL US OFF, ALONG WITH OUR PROPERTY, TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER.

You just might be laughing now and rolling in the booty … but the gig is up.  Nobody is fooled and you are the idiots.  You are just one more dried up old woman … another rotting carcass…an embarrassment to yourself, your family and humanity and you are so stupid you don’t even realize it yet.

Dear Ms. Warren:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the humanitarian crisis at our southern border caused by the surge in unaccompanied migrant children illegally entering the United States.  I share your concerns regarding this important matter.

As you may know, the southern border is currently ground-zero for a growing humanitarian crisis.  Since October 2013, more than 50,000 unaccompanied children have been apprehended at the southern border after making a treacherous journey from Central America through regions of Mexico controlled by drug cartels, such as the Zetas.  The children who have made this journey are alone and vulnerable—facing the threat of murder, kidnapping, rape, sexual slavery, and forced labor at the hands of savage criminal organizations.  Human rights organizations and academics estimate that as many as six in ten women and girl migrants experience sexual violence during the journey through Mexico.  This is especially troubling given the recent increase in the number of female unaccompanied alien children who are under the age of thirteen. 

Sadly, this crisis is the predictable result of President Obama’s misguided policies.  By failing to enforce our immigration laws, President Obama has created an incentive for Central American children to make the dangerous journey to the United States—jeopardizing their lives by putting them in the hands of transnational criminal organizations.  I believe that President Obama must take swift action to address the humanitarian crisis on our southern border that his failed policies have created.  President Obama must also work with Congress to increase immigration enforcement resources to ensure that our borders are protected against further surges of illegal immigration.

To address this crisis, I joined Representative Henry Cuellar to introduce the bipartisan, bicameral Helping Unaccompanied Minors and Alleviating National Emergency (HUMANE) Act (S. 2611) on July 15, 2014.  The HUMANE Act would improve the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (TVPRA; P.L. 110-457) by treating all unaccompanied migrant children the same—allowing children from all countries, not just Canada and Mexico, to be voluntarily reunited with their families after they are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security.  Children who do not consent to be returned to their home countries would be placed in the protective custody of the Department of Health and Human Services and required to appear before an immigration judge within seven days.  If the child fails to prove that they are eligible to remain in the United States after their hearing before the judge, they will be ordered removed from the United States on an expedited basis.

The HUMANE Act would also authorize increased border security and port of entry resources to achieve operational control of the southern border.  S. 2611 was referred to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs for further consideration, and it is my hope that this important legislation will be brought to the Senate floor for debate as soon as possible.  You may be certain I will continue working with my colleagues in the Senate to ensure that the Obama Administration and the Department of Homeland Security are held accountable for their failure to secure the border and enforce our immigration laws.  We must do everything we can to end this humanitarian crisis and protect our southern border.

I appreciate the opportunity to represent Texas in the United States Senate.  Thank you for taking the time to contact me.

Sincerely,
JOHN CORNYN

Deflection in Action



We now have a situation in Ferguson, MO 



Police arrest a man during the riots on August 12

Soldiers of California's 40th Armored Division direct traffic away from an area of South Central Los Angeles burning during the Watts riot. Whole city blocks were gutted by arson and mob set fires that the fire department was powerless to control due to sniper attacks
After a night of increasing unrest, police and local black community leaders held a community meeting on Thursday, August 12, to discuss an action plan and to urge calm; the meeting failed. Later that day, Los Angeles police chief William H. Parker called for the assistance of the California Army National Guard.[14]
The rioting intensified and on Friday, August 13, about 2,300 National Guardsmen joined the police trying to maintain order on the streets. That number increased to 3,900 by midnight on Saturday, August 14. Sergeant Ben Dunn said "The streets of Watts resembled an all-out war zone in some far-off foreign country, it bore no resemblance to the United States of America."[citation needed] Martial law was declared and curfew was enforced by the National Guardsmen who put a cordon around a vast region of South Central Los Angeles.[15] In addition to the guardsmen, 934 Los Angeles Police officers and 718 officers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department were deployed during the rioting.[14]
Between 31,000 and 35,000 adults participated in the riots over the course of six days, while about 70,000 people were "sympathetic, but not active."[12] Mainstream white America viewed those actively participating in the riot as criminals destroying and looting their own neighborhood. Many in the black community, however, saw the rioters as taking part in an "uprising against an oppressive system."[12] Black civil rights activist Bayard Rustin in a 1966 essay stated, "The whole point of the outbreak in Watts was that it marked the first major rebellion of Negroes against their own masochism and was carried on with the express purpose of asserting that they would no longer quietly submit to the deprivation of slum life."[16]
Those actively participating in the riots started physical fights with police, blocked firefighters of the Los Angeles Fire Department from their safety duties, or beat white motorists. Arson and looting were largely confined to white-owned stores and businesses that were said to have caused resentment in the neighborhood due to perceived unfairness.[17]
Los Angeles police chief Parker publicly described the people he saw involved in the riots as acting like "monkeys in the zoo."[17] Overall, an estimated $40 million in damage was caused as almost 1,000 buildings were damaged or destroyed. Homes were not attacked, although some caught fire due to proximity to other fires.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watts_Riots

One problem with that narrative: I worked with Lee Minikus in South LA..  He, not being a bullshitter or liar, said the thing started after Rena Price got a 2X4 and hit him in the back with it. 
Secondly, I attended Compton College. Between years, I moved. The College said I had to get a Permit from the Board of Education at 8th and Figueroa in downtown L A. 
I asked other students--How do I get there? One said, "Oh ,it's easy. Just get on Central and keep going north to 8th. Turn left and go to Figueroa".
I took that route UNFORTUNATELY. This was 1960! AS I drove through, I was almost run off the road by a car load of blacks, had bottles thrown at my car, and had yelled at me a word I had never heard: HONKEY. I recall wondering--What's a HONKEY? 
==========================================================

Background

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1992_Los_Angeles_riots



South Central Los Angeles, where much of the rioting took place.[5]
On March 3, 1991, Rodney King and two passengers were driving west on the Foothill Freeway (I-210) through the Lake View Terrace neighborhood of Los Angeles. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) attempted to initiate a traffic stop. A high-speed pursuit ensued with speeds estimated at up to 115 mph first over freeways and then through residential neighborhoods. When King came to a stop, CHP Officer Timothy Singer and his wife, CHP Officer Melanie Singer, ordered the occupants under arrest.[6]
After two passengers were placed in the patrol car, five white Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers (Stacey KoonLaurence Powell, Timothy Wind, Theodore Briseno, and Rolando Solano) attempted to subdue King, who came out of the car last. King was tasered, kicked in the head, beaten with PR-24 batons for over one minute, then tackled and cuffed. The officers claimed that King was under the influence of PCP at the time of arrest, which caused him to be very aggressive and violent towards the officers. Koon said King resisted arrest.[6] The video showed that he was crawling on the ground during the beating and that the police made no attempt to cuff him.[7]
A subsequent test for the presence of PCP turned up negative.(This is bullshit! I was a Drug Recognition Expert for the CHP, and had personally arrested several  who were using PCP. As an Instructor at the Academy told us, PCP was created as an anesthetic. He said, "Remember when you are dealing with these guys--They don't feel pain--they are prepped for surgery. QUESTION: How many of YOU could take ONE HIT that Rodney got--and not surrender)   The incident was captured on a camcorder by resident George Holliday from his apartment in the vicinity. The tape was roughly ten minutes long. While the case was presented to the court, clips of the incident were not released to the public.[8]
In a later interview, King, who was on parole from prison on a robbery conviction and who had past convictions for assault, battery and robbery, said that he had not surrendered earlier because he knew that an arrest for DUI would violate the terms of his parole.
The footage of King being beaten by police while lying on the ground became a focus for media attention and a rallying point for activists in Los Angeles and around the United States. 

O K--Who was the REAL Bad guy here? 

The Officers were tried in Superior Court for "Assault under Color of Authority". It weas pointed out that they had not broken any law or LAPD Policy. They were found innocent. 
GHW Bush came to town to start his presidential campaign.
Several Race Baiter Reverends cornered him . Not wanting to lose votes outright, GHW Bush sicced the FBI on the officers and got them convicted for "Civil Rights Violations".  (Basically, a Civil Rights Violation is what the Attorney General SAYS it is--isn't that scary?) 

=========================================================

So here we are now to Ferguson, MO 
Here is the police Report:
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/08/15/ferguson-missouri-police-report-michael-brown/14115495/

In documents released by police during a press conference Friday, Michael Brown is named as a suspect in a strong-arm robbery of a box of cigars moments before he was shot to death by Officer Darren Wilson.
A police offense incident report dated Aug. 9 that was part of the packet of documents Ferguson, Mo. Police Chief Thomas Jackson released quotes the officer writing, "I was able to confirm that Brown is the primary suspect in this incident."
The report does not name the officer or contain an officer's signature. It also does not contain the address where the robbery is said to have happened.
But it provides the following description of the robbery: An employee at a Ferguson convenience store saw Brown grab a box of Swisher Sweet cigars and hand them to another young man identified as Dorrian Johnson, who was standing behind him.
The employee said he told Brown he had to pay for the cigars and instead, Brown reached across the counter and grabbed numerous packets of cigars and turned to leave the store.
The report says according to the employee Brown grabbed his shirt and pushed him into a display rack. Then he and Johnson left the store without paying.
The report describes Brown as 6'4, 292 pounds and wearing a white T-shirt, khaki long shorts, yellow socks and a red Cardinals baseball cap.
Jackson released dispatch records and video surveillance of the robbery as well.
Brown was unarmed when Wilson killed him. Witnesses in the area say Brown had raised his hands to surrender when he was shot. Police have not confirmed that information.
O K--He's criminal. To add to that, a publication yesterday released photos of Brown flashing "Gang Sign". 

Somehow, Brown managed to assault a police officer, ( A Violent Felony in any State) 
and apparently after he feels the police officer is incapacitated, he starts to flee.
The Supreme Court said an officer can shoot a fleeing violent felon. Most Police Departments would  order this as--should the officer allow an escape, and that felon assaults and or kills a citizen, the Department would be liable civilly .

Some info the news didn't/will not tell you about the Isla Vista shooting



Below is an article from the L A Times.
Some thoughts by me, generated by my experiences as a California Peace Officer.

-- Notice how EVERYONE is finding someone else to blame. So far, the Libs locally blame guns.NOTE: This kid was so  well off that he would have purchased guns legally or illegally

-- The parents saw the video .
They contacted Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office.
The Sheriff contacted Rodgers.
Now, here is what the news probably does not know, and would push in Rodgers' favor if they did:
FACT: In California, you can not be arrested for "Acting Weird".
You can take someone to your County Mental Health (Known by cops as CMH) to have them evaluated. Section 5150 of the Welfare and Institutions code gives you that authority, and the person can be held for observation for 48 hours.
BUT--it takes a psychiatrist to declare that person "A Danger to himself and others" to have the person committed for treatment.

In a few of my own experiences, even though the person had shown some suicidal behavior, or engaged to potentially deadly actions against others, a psychiatrist would interview the subject, then declare that the person was not a hazard.

In one case, a prisoner arrested for DUI, asked for water. Told we didn't have any, he went into what appeared to be a seizure, but he was conscious all that time. Due to the behavior, we stopped the car, and an ambulance transported that restrained subject to a hospital. Doctors declared there was nothing physically wrong. Two psychiatrists were called to evaluate. I do not know how the first conversation went, but I was at the door, guarding at the second one. The subject told the psychiatrist,"If I wasn't tied to this gurney, I'd rip your head off and shove it up your ass".
The psychiatrist emerged and told the first psychiatrist, "I think he's a little upset, but I don't think he's  a danger".

San Diego, 2004.
In East San Diego, a family has an adult male in the home, that can not control anger. Occasionally, he strikes at family members, throws objects and damages the home.
Invariably, San Diego PD is called. The officers take the subject to CMH. Invariably, about two hours after arriving at CMH, the staff releases the subject out onto the street.
It got so bad that the SDPD officers, would simply have him get out of the police car and go inside CMH --on his own, knowing they would waste two hours there.
EXCEPT, that last day. He is released by the psychiatrist, goes outside and gets into a confrontation. Police are called as he is swinging a tree limb at people on the sidewalk. An officer arrives, tries to talk him down, but the subject grabs a heavy all metal shopping cart and is trying to hit the officer with it. The Officer shot him.

Oceanside, 2001.
Joe, the homeless alcoholic climbs down from a bridge on to a freeway sign over Interstate- 5 .
The CHP Has to stop all traffic on South I-5 in case he jumps. After two Oceanside PD Officers try to talk him off for an hour and a half, a Sergeant arrives and promises Joe a six pack of beer if he will climb up and off.
Joe is taken to CMH. Joe asks for--and gets his six after CHM declares him "Not a hazard to himself or others".
Two weeks later, Joe does a repeat performance. Same Sergeant gets him off, and to CMH. Psychiatrist is not going to hold him. Sgt asks psychiatrist's home address, phone, etc, and tells him that when Joe jumps, he is going to put an ad in the paper for attorneys to advertise for clients damaged by Joe's jump. Joe got held for 48 hours.

This goes back to JFK and Robert Kennedy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deinstitutionalisation

Deinstitutionalisation (or deinstitutionalization) is the process of replacing long-stay psychiatric hospitals with less isolated community mental health services for those diagnosed with a mental disorder or developmental disability. Deinstitutionalisation works in two ways: the first focuses on reducing the population size of mental institutions by releasing patients, shortening stays, and reducing both admissions and readmission rates; the second focuses on reforming mental hospitals' institutional processes so as to reduce or eliminate reinforcement of dependency, hopelessness, learned helplessness, and other maladaptive behaviours.[1]
According to psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg, deinstitutionalisation has been an overall benefit for most psychiatric patients, though many have been left homeless and without care.[2] The deinstitutionalisation movement was initiated by three factors:
  • A socio-political movement for community mental health services and open hospitals;
  • The advent of psychotropic drugs able to manage psychotic episodes;
  • A ļ¬nancial imperative to shift costs from state to federal budgets.
According to American psychiatrist Loren Mosher, most deinstitutionalization in the USA took place after 1972, as a result of the availability of SSI, long after the antipsychotic drugs were used universally in state hospitals.
According to psychiatrist and author Thomas Szasz, deinstitutionalisation is the policy and practice of transferring homeless, involuntarily hospitalised mental patients from state mental hospitals into many different kinds of de facto psychiatric institutions funded largely by the federal government. These federally subsidised institutions began in the United States and were quickly adopted by most Western governments. The plan was set in motion by the Community Mental Health Act as a part of John F. Kennedy's legislation and passed by the U.S. Congress in 1963, mandating the appointment of a commission to make recommendations for "combating mental illness in the United States".
In many cases the deinstitutionalisation of the mentally ill in the Western world from the 1960s onward has translated into policies of "community release". Individuals who previously would have been in mental institutions are no longer continuously supervised by health care workers. Some experts, such as E. Fuller Torrey, have considered deinstitutionalisation to be a failure, while some consider many aspects of institutionalization to have been worse.

You see, Liberals would rather take a chance that your common citizen might be killed, wounded, raped or maimed than "Deprive some mental person of their freedom".

RadarOnline.com exclusively.
The 22-year-old, who law enforcement officials say killed six people before he died in a shoot out with deputies from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff ‘s Office, also “heard voices.”
His parents, Hollywood director Peter Rodger and his ex-wife, Li Chin, are now in hiding, staying at a hotel, as they try to come to grips with what their son is believed to have done.
“Elliot has always been troubled and couldn’t express himself,” the source tells us.
“His parents did everything they could to help him. It seemed that Elliot suffered from extreme paranoia and heard voices, but it was impossible to properly diagnose because he just wouldn’t talk. Having been prescribed psychiatric medication, Elliot refused to take it.
“Before moving from L.A. to Santa Barbara, he had been seeing a mental health professional for years, and his parents got a team of doctors for him to continue to see after his move. Their hearts break for the victims and their families.”
There was a reluctance to let Rodger move to Santa Barbara, but he was insistent, the source says.
“He thought that moving to Santa Barbara would make him happy, and his parents obliged. At first Elliot did really well academically in school at Santa Barbara City College (a community college about 30 minutes from the University of California Santa Barbara campus), but he had a hard time fitting in with the party scene. With that, Elliot became more isolated, and his grades began to suffer.”
In an incredibly chilling video he uploaded to YouTube less than 24 hours before his killing spree, Roger spoke of his frustration at being rebuffed by women. Speaking with little emotion, while seated in his car and looking straight into a camera, he said “I am the superior one” as he wondered aloud why women didn’t find him attractive.
His solution was, he said, to go on a shooting spree.
“I’m going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB and I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up, blonde slut that I see inside there. All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would’ve all rejected me and looked down on me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them.”
His lethal rampage actually began prior to the shooting, Sheriff Bill Brown revealed late on Saturday.
Rodger stabbed three males in his apartment before taking to the streets in a black BMW. There he fatally shot two female and one male UCSB students. Rodger also hit two bicyclists with his car and seriously injured others with gunfire.
His parents were concerned about Rodger’s postings on social media even prior to his YouTube “Retribution” video and had contacted law enforcement in Santa Barbara, the source tells Radar.
According to the Rodger family attorney, Alan Shifman, the family contacted local authorities to do a “welfare check” on Elliot just a few weeks ago and cops found him to be “perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human,” but seemingly without a girlfriend or friends.
Only two years earlier, Elliot was photographed in a much different setting, on the red carpet at the premiere ofThe Hunger Games, alongside his father who was the second unit director on the film.
However, our insider reveals, “Elliot never fit in at school in Santa Barbara, and certainly not in his dad’s Hollywood glamorous world. He was extremely smart, and loved to play video games. He wasn’t prone to violence at all. His parents have been in contact with the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office and have indicated they will fully cooperate with the investigation.”

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown on Sunday defended his agency's handling of a visit deputies made last month to the suspect in Friday's Isla Vista rampage that left seven dead.
In April,  family members called the Sheriff's Department expressing concern about Elliot Rodger's health. The deputies said Rodger, 22, seemed to be fine and they did not take any action against him.

Brown told CBS News' "Face the Nation" that he wasn't sure whether the deputies checked to see if he had any weapons registered in his name. Had they done that, the check would have shown Rodger had legally purchased three guns. Because Rodger had never been institutionalized or held by authorities, Brown added, he was permitted to have the guns.
"Obviously, looking back on this, it's a very tragic situation, and we certainly wish that we could turn the clock back and maybe change some things," Brown told CBS.

The sheriff added that deputies who checked on Rodger followed procedure and that they were convinced he was not a harm to himself. Rodger, he added, had a "a very convincing story." 
"During the course of his interaction with mental health professionals, he apparently had never been either institutionalized or committed for an involuntary hold of any kind," Brown added. "And those are the two triggers that actually would have made him a prohibited person in terms of a fire arms purchase. So he was able, sadly, to obtain those three firearms.

In a 137-page document Rodger wrote, he mentioned the sheriff's welfare check last month, saying his whole plan would have been foiled had the officer found his guns and writing, which were in his room.
"That would have ended everything," he wrote. "For a few horrible seconds, I thought it was all over."
The welfare check was one of three interactions Santa Barbara authorities had with Rodger.


In January, officials said, Rodger accused his roommate of stealing three candles worth $22 and performed a citizen's arrest. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department eventually arrested the roommate and booked him on petty theft charges.
Last summer, he accused several people of assaulting him. But investigators concluded he was the aggressor in the incident and a detective suspended the case.
Rodger is suspected of killing six people before taking his own life Friday. Officials said he targeted his apartment complex, then a UC Santa Barbara sorority and then a deli. 

The narrative of the violence described by authorities shares striking similarities to the statement Rodger wrote in which he described plans to kill people.
In that document, he outlines detailed plans for killing his roommates and then attacking a sorority in what he described as his "war on women."
"I will attack the very girls who represent everything I hate in the female gender: The hottest sorority of UCSB," he wrote.
