 Hi. Whats the deal with this? Nice lady wrote her sheriff about the neighborhood druggies with long records that harrass her. She works full time, raised a son, pays taxes, homeowner and no record, all she wrote was an email for help in neighborhood safety. Now she def will not be safe in her neighborhood, could lose her job, etc. They even went in her room and took her personal diary. Can anyone give insight to this?..She has no psych record and only physical is a heart condition. When they showed up, of course she thought they were there to help. Her whole life is just costly destroyed now. Why would ones abuse their power like this? Is this going on alot? Shes not mental, but again, it is no crime to even have a disorder. Thx . Please just positive posts, this has been upsetting enough already for her family. And she was taking care of ger very old mother on top of working, so this is disrupting their survival in every way.

I may not have been on here a lot as of late, but I think that what I am going to reply will likely be stated in much the similar way by other members. I believe that there are a lot of missing facts that we, as outsiders looking in, do not have and it is very easy to skew opinions when not all the facts are present. I am sure that there is some rationale or thinking present that may make things much clearer. I hope that things turn out well for her and her community as well. I understand that often times the drug problem in an area is very unsettling and saddening, but only through those types of actions can things even have a chance of changing.

Like Cory said, there's a lot more to this story than what we see here. Too many facts missing for us to make any kind of constructive comment or help in any way.


Who took her diary? Why did they take her diary? Is that all "they" did while they were there? What was the content of the email she sent. These are just a few of the unanswered questions.


We need a lot more information.


Why not contact the agency that was at her residence and ask them what took place? Just a suggestion.

You may want to do something with the title of this thread, too.


Speaking of which, was she taken somewhere by the Law Enforcement Agency? If so, where?

 Hi. Thx. The police took her diary. She wrote an email to the sherifff asking for help with the hard druggies that harrass. The content of the email was simple, just a lady asking for help, a lady with both a long solid history of good character with jobs and people. She has been a security guard for years. I do not live near her. I and others have the email and we all kbew she has been harrassed. She even has it on video. She merely wrote an email for assistance. Its pretty common knowledge that the hard drug types do odd harrassments to neighbors to intimidate. She wrote the email after coming home to another used condom on her doorknob. The ones doing things have pages of records from drugs to assaults. She has no rwcord of anything. Im looking for answers and insights for its not making sense, to anyone that knows her, or to her. She trusted in the cops to help. The trust is broken and now her life is in costly shambles, has been publicly humiliated, and basically has a sign on her head that anyone can do anything to her. That is not good. She bought her home years ago before the street went bad. Real estate does not even sell there due to crime. Businesses shut down due to crime. Cops know thearea is bad and good community relations should be key for promoting safety to the good people there. Shes not believed, yet the ones doing it, as she has the names have pages of crimes including assaults, rapes, and more. She called for help, not a nightmare. And she has helped countless people, worked overtime every week...and there is not any other background, except a simple lady, goes to church, raised a son, takes care of her mother, does not even drink..nothing..thats why Im looking for answers...insights...Why couldnt the cop just tell the badones not to harass and just give her street more patrol and keep it simple, and cost effective and safer, vs just further endanger her well being?

She was taken to a mental ward for an evaluation. The only thing they say is, she talks to animals. Well yes, like hello dog, heres your food, want to go out, yet when is that ever a crime? She was merely reporting drug dealers harassing her AND even those dealers not only have long records, but make kids on bikes transport drugs. She was doing the community a favor by reporting, had documented times and dates of incidenrs and had it on her surveillance cams

Like other's have said we don't have enough information to have an opinion.  If she was involuntarily committed for evaluation someone had to have made a credible claim that she was a danger to herself or others.  Whether or not she is, I have no idea.  she will have to be evaluated by a mental health professional.  If this was some type of unwarranted malicious action she should contact an attorney.  If she is truely in need of mental health care I hope she gets it.

I tried to sift through the post....... now my head hurts. Sorry. Too much being left out to form an opinion that might be construed as helpful in nature.  None of us have the slightest clue as to what you are talking about, where this occurred or what the neighborhood history is.  It appears there is an assumption that we all work together, know each other and have immediate access into incidents from every police agency in the country.  None of us know who "they" is or are.  I didn't do the psych eval so how would I know why your friend was placed in a 72 hour hold for further evaluation?  When the agency, who ever they are, went to the residence, what did they find?  You said she talks to animals.  While this might not be a reason for a mental health evaluation, what was the condition of the home?  Was this friend living in squalid conditions and not able to care for herself?  You say that you don't live near her.  How do you know her?  Have you been to the residence and seen with your own eyes how this person lives?  I haven't either so how should I know what happened and or why?  You see, there is just way too much information left out.  Sorry..... I need to go now and rest my head.

Bump to everybody.Not one item here makes sense and appears to be totally hearsay.Where is the O.P. getting this info?Allegedly this lwonderful person emailed the Sheriff and the Police appear....HUH?Two totally separate agencies.All leos have to have probable cause to take a subject to the Banana Factory for a 72 hr. eval. period.Everybody either knows that oir should.They definately wouldn't go scouting through this individuals residence,without a warrant.Who said druggies were harassing her.Furthermore who is it that declared this fantastic individual "Sane".What is the name of said institution and what is its location.How does the O.P. know what this lady said to animals.I had a call on a lady one evening who was yelling at the green giraffs in her back yard at 0300.You bet her bunns went to the Banana Factory.


This entire episode appears to be a farce by somebody who is not fond of leos who suddenly appeared on this link today with this being the first post.I would have to see a deposition en re to this to verify it and even then I would be skeptical.

You stated that you do not live near her.   I am going out on a limb and guess that all information you have is second hand at best.


I will let you know this - LE will not transport someone for a mental evaluation without there being some strong reasons for doing so.  There are laws that give specifics on what these reasons are; ie, a danger to themself and/or others. 


Once at the medical facility doctors take over and perform an evaluation. If she is not deemed mentally unstable she will be released.  If not, a committment order will be completed and they will find her a bed in a mental health care facility.  If she is in a facility now, don't blame the officers that brought her in for the evalution for doing something wrong.  Evidently they were right because the doctor thought so too!


Since you were not there and did not witness what occurred... maybe you should do some detective work and find out what really happened.  Maybe she was upset over the issues in her neighborhood and said some things that concerned the officers. 


Insinuating that the officers are trying to get rid of this lady because of a complaint of drug activity in her neighborhood is a bit much for me early this Sunday morning.  But, I did my best to educate you and encourage you to do some fact finding.


Should you find this insulting or negative, I suggest you read your posts through an officer's eyes and you would be insulted too!


Sincerely,

DonnaLynn

 I have to say this. It is possible someone working overtime and caring for a very elderly parent who is feeling pressure maybe just cracked. I agree with everyone on here. We don't know the whole story and sorry you don't either. Maybe everything going on was just too much. Don't judge the police too harshly. Their job is to help and they don't relish removing someone from their home.

Am still a tad confused by the statement "Your Back" Is this indeed meant to be about a part of your anatomy or that "YOU'RE  BACK" ??

 Threads like this is why I don't have a Facebook account. Sounds like a post someone got on thier page and mass forwarded.

Well, methinks since the OP left, there's no reason to leave this open.
