What a bunch of ill-informed ad hominem garbage. Nothing more disgusting than politically/personally motivated fools using the mentally ill to get their way. I conduct risk evaluations on a regular basis and guess what (guided by research) is the number one concern I look for? The presence of firearms in the home. It's the best predictor out their. Severe schizophrenia only marginally increases the risk of committing violent crime and lesser diagnoses offer no real insight into potential for violence. Therefore, on what basis do you involuntarily commit someone for a diagnosis that does not represent a risk to society? Lock up smokers, their behaviors have been demonstrated to cause far more harm to themselves and others than schizophrenia.
