Homeless Guy Update

The homeless guy has made the news in a big way now.  Maybe he didn't realize it, I don't know, but the worst thing he could've done was start talking to the kids around town.  He was spotted talking to school kids (to whom he would tell jokes it seems, they liked him) but of course, they were children forgetting the warnings of their parents.  When enough of those parents heard this, they stormed to the police station to see if he could be arrested on some charge.  They tried vagrancy, yet try as they might it would appear he hasn't harmed anyone - yet.  Sure, he's an eyesore and a nuisance, but ... He did, however, go off into some kind of seizure and completely destroyed part of one man's business front. 

Anyway, he's been arrested "for his own good" and they can legally hold him for 72 hours.  But in the meantime, it appears one mother claims her child felt "funny" being around him.  (Maybe she said what she thought her parents wanted to hear?  Kids sure pick up on the attitudes of adults quickly, and the prevailing adult attitude has been 'this one's odd')  After that, who knows.  He won't stay in shelters, it's a well-settled town, and no one is sure what to do about him.  He continues to talk in incomprehensible babbling, though he speaks well enough.  He just doesn't make any sense, that's all.

I have a feeling something's going to break, so I'll keep watching my local news.

I can understand why the parents would be fearful in this day and age.

I honestly think from what is said in your entries that this poor man is suffereng from schizophrenia or some like illness.  He desperately needs medications to bring him back to reality.  I do feel for some reason, I am not sure why, that this poor soul is more afraid of himself than anyone needs to be afraid of him.  When someone acts out of the ordinary we just say he or she will harm others, they are crazy needs to be locked up.  In reality these poor people harm themselves more than others, yes they can be destructive when they are not coherent or aware of what they are doing.   I sincerely pray for this man and that someone somewhere reaches out and treats him with kindess and caring  and as a human being and not the destructive, harmful man they perceive him to be.  I sincerely hope that I am right about him.
