Mashaka: "A Bolivar police officer approached Lammers at a Sonic restaurant and coaxed him to the stationhouse without incident."This is article is starting out well - now to read on...
Bit'O'Gristle: Lammers is being held on $500,000 and was charged with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action.You know, I'm all for a preemptive strike and all, and good on the mom for reporting him, but I fail to see how you can arrest a guy for a crime he has yet to commit. Making a terroristic threat, ok..that's valid, but first degree assault? Armed criminal action? When did that actually occur? That makes about as much sense as me saying "I'm going to rob a bank", and then being arrested without having done it, and charged with bank robbery. Someone please explain the logic here.
Mashaka: Gyrfalcon: BackwardsHatClub: So if you confess your desire to shoot people to the cops you are making a terroristic threat? That seems... unfair. Confessing is now a crime?They have to do something. Would you prefer people like this go to the cops and they say "Oh, okay. Off you go then, have a nice day!"No. But this is where you introduce them to mental health services - not lock them in a cage for years, sitting there useless and getting even more bitter on the public's dime.
