Police say man called 911 system 8 times to complain about police

Seems a bit counterproductive.

"McGuirk was found on West Howry Road drinking a Natural Ice beer..."

This is the best part

'Scoobie Doobie'.

I never understand why people find the ramblings of the mentally confused so fascinating. Sometimes I'll see the local news report on some rambling like this and then take the time to refute whatever was said instead of just reporting the news in a more sensible way, "Mentally ill man calls 911." The nice end to that story would have been, mentally ill man calls 911 and was helped. Instead he's facing charges?

I maintain there is no wrong way to call 911. Either you have a legitimate emergency and are sane, or you're not quite sane and call for an illegitimate reason, which is an of itself an urgent matter. He called 8 times talking about Jesus or whatever . . . his thinking is disorganized.

This is like penny a poke at Bedlam (which if you don't know was a terrible British practice where people could pay to literally poke people chained up in insane asylums).

We don't need to know this man's business. I'd prefer if I ever lost it that the news not print the details. The details aren't important. The entire story isn't important. The only thing important in that story was the man himself, not the 911 system, etc., and it doesn't look like he'll be getting any help. In the end he's the one who helped a local news site sell some advertising impressions.

You don't want to sell me death sticks.

You want to go home and rethink your life.

"He told the dispatcher "I am your father," and then said his wife was "very disappointed," but it's not clear why."

I think I could shed some light on why his wife was disappointed.

Not sure if those forehead marks are tattoos or just exceedingly poor shaving, but he's kinda got a Brainiac-cap thing going.

What an awkward cyber-interface. I mean, I'd go USB or ethernet if I were gonna do that, but I'd probably forget the physical connection and just go wireless.

I hadn't noticed that, but now that you've pointed it out it's driving me nuts.

SOB has a point, though s/he takes it too far: some people call 911 to find out how long to roast a chicken. They shouldn't do that, that's what Information -- 411 -- is for.

But seriously. Yes, too many nutty people are being processed as criminals instead of treated for their disorder. I blame "deinstitutionalization": you're supposed to get mental health care in the community instead of being locked away in a loony bin, except that you see this stuff more often in poor communities (like Baltimore, e.g.) that don't have the money or the staff to handle their end.

In Baltimore back in 1969 my Dad "became difficult." The cops supervised his tantrum till he got tired, then took him into custody and delivered him to the mental health system. He wound up in the State hospital for a few months.

These days the cops would beat him down and then put him in a holding cell with crackheads and violent assholes -- if they didn't just "feel threatened" and shoot him.
