And the system? – is fucking fucked

Posted on

Question:

If you find a man NAKED wandering around in the bush after having spent the night out there and you are a police oficer, what should you do?

Answer:

The man seems perfectly “fine” just a bit disoriented. There is no need to do anything. Just call his estranged wife and seat him in the public waiting area while she drives the long distance to far away country town to get him.

Yes, because that makes perfect sense.

Oh and if you are the man’s psychiatrist? You hope that the police will section the man and when they don’t you ask the estranged wife to try and talk to him into going into hospital, I mean, it’s not as though the man is at the very brink of a massive psychotic episode. Let’s just wait for him to hurt someone before we do anything drastic.

Anyway, the private hospital has no beds until tomorrow so we should just hang on until then. That’s only sensible.

So, as of this moment, he is at home, by himself, not going to hospital, not being helped. Because, my friends, the system is fucked.

The end.

  5. For God’s Sake what is wrong with these people? You must be chewing your finger ends. I am sending lots of love, kind thoughts and laser beam killer eyes for anyone who gets in your way.

  6. Well obviously, we should all be absolutely sure that he’s a danger to himself and others before we actually help. Maybe after he’s actually killed or injured someone, we could see fit to hospitalise him? Well, maybe…

    I should know better than to even be shocked by this, but yeah, that’s truly fucked up. I can’t believe they called her to come pick him up. The possible consequences are just unthinkable.

  8. That is awful and really, the system is terrible when someone can’t get the help they need. Here’s to getting that help or maybe a new system (in our dreams, Ali, in our dreams).
