Since when do mental hospitals take CRIMINALLY INSANE patients out on field trips?


My local news channel had a story abotu a criminally insane patient who escaped during a FIELD TRIP TO A FAIR WHERE THERE ARE INNOCENT PEOPLE. They blame security but I personally blame it on being a really stupid and brainless idea.

  • Nice to see our tax dollars paying for criminals to go to the fair right? I saw that same thing. I was so angry! I'm pretty sure they are sent away to be punished, and that used to mean no cotton candy for the psycho killer.

  • this wasnt the first time he escaped during a field trip, he did back in 1991 also. they found him a few hours from my house and even closer to my best friends house, I am not a happy camper. Idiots running the hospital need to be locked up if they cant make intelligent decisions regarding their patients. I said the same thing you did "why isnt this guy in a hospital for criminally insane?" My god he killed a woman and then set her body on fire he needs to not be going to the fair!

  • Well I know that if you claim that you're mentally insane on the stand you'll immediately go to a mental hospital rathe than a prison. Which is retarted. Because if a person is mentally insane what the hell good would a hospital do them anyway? They need to be locked away especially if they killed someone. Our fucking state is just run by a bunch of pussies! Yes. Washington. Great job Gregoire!

  • lol Imogine I feel your anger trust me, I live in Oregon near the washington border, DH works for the state and I have never seen two states as screwed up as Oregon and washington. DH would agree with you about the pussies he works in an area that is being hit hard by the idiots who dont want to worry about public safety.

  • Even the patients brother was amazed they took him out, The part that really amazed me was he packed all his clothes, his money and his guitar and took it with him when they left the hospital! What did they think he was going to do with all his belongings in his bag...wait let me think... OH THATS RIGHT ESCAPE!

    OH OH AND.........The guy has his own myspace PAGE! Apparently he is a musician! Great so now he can stalk people online too!

  • We have real geniuses in our state don't we?

  • We weren't allowed outside PERIOD when I was at my hospital. We were required by law to stay indoors. Imagine, no fresh air, not even an open window, for 7 whole days. Of course, we weren't criminally insane, we were just regular old mental ward patients.
