  •  A brother in law and a step sister (6+ / 0-)

    Both schizophrenic. My step sister is only a danger to herself, my brother in law was a different story. When he was younger he was institutionalized after he tried to kill my in-laws and then broke out and came here.

    He has an infant son here and went to our police claiming he wanted to report a kidnapping. He said that he was the Archangel Michael and that the devil had stolen his child and replaced him with a devil infant that he intended to kill to bring back his son.

    We knew he was in town because our local cops called us and warned us. You see even tho' he escaped from involuntary incarceration in a mental institution it wasn't considered an illegal act here. We were terrorized for about a week and finally got him back to NY with help from the police who put him on a bus.

    You never know what the human mind is capable of.

      have those similar 'visions' (for lack of a better word).  Which brings up the lack of proper institutions for the care of folk like that.

        After Reagan we had  a few years of great difficulty with mr.u's brother. Now he is in a group home, his life ruined by that dreadful disease but no longer a danger. It's so sad.
