I know a person that has verifiable mental health issues primarily anger management, along with the inability to admit mistakes, this person is convinced of their personal superiority over others and does regularly manipulate and intimidate people for no other reason ( it appears) than for personal amusement. This person is also a LEO, with special connections to the administration, as the administration relies heavily upon this person. This person has many connections with political, financial and other seats of power here. This person is being medically treated (anti depressants) for what I believe to be an anger type malady although I can see no improvement.

Even though I have no knowledge of this persons LEO record (which maybe spotless and likely is), as my contact with this person is strictly non LEO in nature. I feel this person is potentially dangerous to himself, but more importantly a danger to others (primarily while off duty). I am no expert in this area, but I can identify excessive anger, hostility, intimidation and manipulation. This person is subject to fits of anger immediately followed by mister nice guy but is never apologetic.

My question is;
What would you do in similar circumstances knowing that this person is powerful and is capable of applying pressure perhaps to the point of creating personal/financial/career problems.

That's a tough one...The decision you make would first start with your belief system. Once you figure out whats most important, then make a decision from there. If you want it to stop and it's safe, I've always been a big believer in facing the problem and/or precieved problem eye to eye. There might be a simple explanation to this if you just ask. Cops "tend" to respect that more than going behind their back... goodluck

Roscoe, I'd like to understand better what you mean when you say this person is potentially dangerous to himself and others. Also, I find myself wondering what your connection is to this person. What sort of relationship brings you into contact with him?

I ask because the context of your contact might explain some of the behavior you are interpretting as angry, hostile, intimidating and manipulative.

Can you tell us more?

Because of the symptoms mentioned I'd like to post a website for Borderline or Narcissistic Personality. It may be something to look into because these are thought to be some conditions of people with abuse patterns and that sound similar to what's mentioned. The website is www.bpdcentral.com. The first pages of this site are about divorcing someone with BPD but if you go further there is more information about the disorder and that it's treatable.


In like manner the spirit also joins in with help for our weakness, for the problem of what we should pray for as we need to we do not know but the spirit itself pleads for us with groanings uttered.

I must agree with Chaplain, we really don't have enough information to go on.

Moot point, perhaps, as the original poster doesn't seem to have posted anything else since April!

Ask the person to seek help to see if he has a problem. Maybe he looks to you to have a problem and everyone else thinks he is OK. That is the question, how do you get to know without causing some hard feelings. But if you think he needs it, get him help.
