An Armed Man having Mental Health Crisis Prompts Police response

This could happen in any town USA, but this incident was in Northern California near San Francisco. A Local news about 30 miles south of San Francisco. It was reported that a 64-year-old man who was in a “mental health crisis” prompted a police response. He had armed himself with a gun according to the police report. His spouse reported that he had been awake for three days and was having paranoid thoughts.
Police called crisis-intervention negotiators as well as mental health professionals. The man eventually surrendered to the police.
What got us was that the police are quoted as saying he is “receiving the care he needs.”
Our two cents on this is that he was awake for three days surely due to psychotropic drugs. Police don’t call in mental health “professionals” unless let’s say a psychiatrists patient is having an emotional attack. He was already under a psychiatrist care and then had this incident. Psychiatrist always prescribed drugs as that is care to psychiatry and it is called treatment.
Now does the mental health professional get dragged into the mud if a patient gets a gun and threatens himself, family and neighbors? No never. What happens is people get arrested and get sent back to the place where it all began. Psychiatry is the reason he was up for three days and then threatened his life and others, so what do they do send him back to a psychiatrist.
It’s called insanity doing the same thing over and over again. The insane psyches are running people into the ground. Yet there are No repercussions, No responsibility, nobody loses a license. No changes, No results. Nothing.
