EXPECT MORE FOR YOUR PET !!! AT FIDO FOODS
As we look at this week, I think it’s time we ask our Presidential Candidates “HOW CAN WE FIX OUR MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES?”
From our local legislators to the tip of the top of Congress. our government is letting us down. How is it possible that we have so many crimes being committed by people who have mental health issues and we just let it be as just another thing?
We all know and it’s not a big secret that our government does not know how to spend our money. It seems to me that our government is not funding our mental facilities the way they are supposed too. It seems like these facilities are just sending people home with the promise that they will take their medication and ask them to seek help in the private sector. As we can see this isn’t really working right!!!
Gunman had mental health problems, bitter family disputes.
John Russell Houser, 59, was one of about two dozen people who bought a ticket to an evening showing of “Trainwreck” at a multiplex in Lafayette, officials said. About 20 minutes into the movie, he stood up and began firing a semiautomatic handgun “methodically,” authorities said, killing two and injuring nine before turning the gun on himself.
Living in the South Bronx we get to see our share of people living with some kind of mental illness. People who walk the streets talking to themselves and screaming from the top of their lungs. Some might even want to get physical; the cops come and they call Ems. A few days later you see this person walking the street like nothing ever happened. I call this a walking time bomb.
I am a strong believer of our second amendment but the question is How can someone who has some kind of mental illness legally buy a gun? Also living in the South Bronx my next question is Why is ok for zoning laws in the inner cities to license 3 liquor stores within a 5 block radius and 1 of them on the same block of a church? Funny thing is that there is always a check cashing place also right next to the liquor stores. I feel our local legislators are letting us down by allowing this to happened. Knowing that in the South Bronx there is a high crime rate and lets not forget our share of mental illness issues walking the streets.
Mental illness has become our taboo of our century. Something that people do not want to talk about but I believe it’s time to bring it out of the closet and speak on the reality that people should not be ashamed to talk about it. This is something that affects every single one of us. What kind of Country are we becoming when we can’t even let our kids go to a movie theater. When you have Congress blaming the insurance company and the insurance company blaming Congress and we are stuck in the middle. How many more people have to die for our government to realized that there is a huge problem?
