“A frequently institutionalized Jacksonville man repeatedly deemed mentally ill by authorities and feared by his mother for a decade of abuse is now charged with suffocating her in her Regency-area apartment Wednesday.”
This man had been involuntarily committed, placed on mental health drugs, and yet, none of that prevented him from committing this heinous crime. Mental health drugs carry homicidal ideation warnings. Involuntary commitment, typically, leads to the prescribing of more mental health drugs.
These are the facts and one additional fact is that every person has the right to know the risks of the proposed treatment and the alternatives to that treatment, prior to ever agreeing to take any drug.
