Not too long ago, I wrote a post about the killing of a schetzophrenic by the Gainesville Police Department.gainesville-police-shoot-(kill)-man-diagnosed-with-schizophrenia. What we had was incompetent government housing regulations complicated by dumb bureaucrats supervised by self-serving administrators under the guise of political correctness exercising insensitive decisions compounded by poor police procedures.
This entire incident would never have happened if the onsite 24 hour a day managers for a non-profit organization had not been forced move off of property by HUD. The non-profit did have a 24 hour a day trained manager on call but they were not called.
No doubt HUD will say that it was a regrettable but unavoidable incident. The politicians will put a spin on it that will absolve them of their oversight supervision. The police will say something to the effect that we did it by the book. In the meantime, the life of a mentally challenged man has been snuffed out and he will pass into oblivion because nobody cared enough to do something that needed to be done.
Everyone involved followed regulations like good little administrators and bureaucrats. Political correctness trumped efforts by a non-profit to do not only what the state would not do but what was the right thing. God help us if we have a relative or child that falls into a like trap. Our limited options
