Mary, this is Murder in the first degree. All these people are just homeless not savages. Instead of killing, they should be helped by our nation, not brutally murdered. I am appalled once again to see this in our own back yard.

I will pray for their souls, and for justification!
Thanks Mary my sweet friend, noted with such great sadness.

Peace,

It is OPEN SEASON ON HOMELESS PEOPLE and some mentally ill people can be easily led, like children.

Poor Mr. McGraham may have stood smiling at that car last month thinking he was about to get some spare change, but instead, he was doused with gasoline and lit up like a dry Christmas tree!

The five people shot to death Sunday may have been told they were going to a place where folks were handing out sandwiches, and instead, they were shot like rabid dogs!

CALIFORNIA's answer to mental illness is PRISON! HOMELESSNESS! and DEATH!

I shiver to think what will happen when our soldiers return from the battlefield, shellshocked, suffering w/ PTSD -- will they trade the Iraqi Desert for A PRISON CELL??????

WILL YOU STAND BY AND WATCH THIS HAPPEN?

Unfortunately they are seen as a burden on society by some. Others would eliminate them for not contributing. That is the plan of the New World Order. If you don't contribute or can't you are of no use to the elite. It is a sad statement for society. I just watched a movie "The Invasion" with Nicole Kidman. The meat and potatoes of it is that for humans to stop destroying you would have to take away what makes them human.

Thank you, everyone, for noting this story and sharing your comments. Tell your friends about this so they will also know what our mental patients face. Now that we are looking at the real possibility of our soldiers coming home soon, let us "support our troops" as folks say often. Let us work to have something better than prison, homelessness, and death waiting for them as well as waiting for our little kids who have Autism. Let us fix this mess.

Deborah, I think that for humans to stop destroying, we have to take away what makes them inhuman: prejudice, bitterness, hatred, and apathy.

Apathy kills, too. If we don't show our concern for those suffering around us, things only get worse. The New World Order may come to power some day, but right now we still live in what is supposed to be a country with government of the people, by the people, and for the people. The homeless don't vote. LET'S SHOW LEGISLATORS THAT THEY ARE VALUED! Write the California governor's office, and please join AIMI.

Sadly I have noted this injustice to the homo sapiens of this World. I tend to agree with Animalspirit that it sounds like a possible serial killer. I'm curious that there aren't community centers for these folks.

We already have a disproportionally high number of Vets, (Total including
Vietnam Vets, Afghanistan and Iraq Vets) that are homeless. More than
25% of the homeless are Vets despite the fact that they only make up
11% of the general population. Of the homeless Vets, 44% are mentally ill.
This is a national disgrace!!!

Thank you Mary. This article is just chilling!!!

Haven't these people suffered enough within their own minds without others harrassing them and killing them. It seems as though someone feels that these people are disposable-how sad. Whoever is harming these people is really ill themselves! This is another reason why we need AIMI so desperately. If these people weren't being hurt and abused when they were institutionalized then maybe the 'treatment' would be more effective. I can imagine that if I was hurt in a place where I was seaking help then I wouldn't want the help anymore. I am sure that these people feel that the whole world is against them because most people are. What has our society come to if we can't have compassion for one another???

War dims the inner light of man. Our psyche is not meant to be employed in the murder of our fellow earth travellers. A crack appears as the soul and mind go to war. One trying to live with what has happened/been done and the other knowing that such a breach in our humanity causes a seemingly death of the spirit within us. And for whatever reason anyone goes homeless, the indictment upon society for letting this happen is great. I'm not a Christian, but the Biblical phrase - something to this effect,'Am I my brother's keeper?' comes to mind. I am convinced we are all our brother's keepers. 'There but for the Grace of God, go I'. Some people are gifited in compassion and can empathise and work with these seemingly lost and desparate minds. I commend you. To the killer(s) I send a message that the place you now find yourself in, is a place of anger, killing these people cannot fix the hurt in your own life, it cannot take away your anger. It is making it worse for you. Your perception of reality is an illusion. I send love and light to all involved in this issue. And Mary, hold fast - your heart is seen and appreciated.

Hello Mary this is so sad makes me sick at heart I and my hub work with the homeless here in CA and this is so wrong it happened a few years ago then it just stopped but looks like its happening again,most towns do have community centers but the homeless don't hang around to much because the police come there to much and take a lot of them to jail. and it is easy to lead them off some where all you have to say is you have food or other things and they will go with you.I will let all my homeless family no whats happening and tell them to take care,we live up north from LA but still want them to no and be careful,thanks Mary for posting this our local news never tells us about things like this, Myself and my family do a dinner for thanksgiving under a bridge here and I will tell all of them hugs Joann.

The monsters amongst us choose the easiest prey, be it animal or man.
Any thing that can set an animal or human on fire is dead inside, without a soul. They must be breeding, because there seems to be so many of them.

Aww Mary, when will these people be seen as just that..People. I see a homeless person on the street and I think there goes someone's child. At one time they were little tots, probably beloved by their Moms and now look, It breaks my heart and the little I can do for them is just not enough. I wish for sanctuarys where they can take a hot shower, sleep out of the cold, have their bellies full of good food.....

Patricia, these people are not only someone's child, they are someone's sibling, Aunt, Uncle, Mother or Father. The time is ripe for change in the Mental Health communities leaders to allow for the care that these folks need. I worry that we will see an influx of elderly homeless with alcohol and/or mental illness. Mental health can be severely damaged by the use of alcohol, street drugs, or stress. Our vets have suffered greatly during the wars, especially the undeclared wars, Vietnam and Iraq, and deserve the excellent treatment that is available to them. However. the social stigma attached with MI or PTSD means that some will think twice before getting treatment. As noted by my Rehab. group. "It's not the barriers that complicate life for the disabled, It's the attitudes."

WHY DO WE HAVE SO MUCH MONEY FOR CORPORATE BAILOUTS

AND UNTOLD BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR WARS, SUPPOSEDLY TO HELP PROTECT THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF FOLKS ACROSS THE SEAS, WHO HAPPEN TO ASK US REPEATEDLY TO GO HOME

BUT OUR MENTAL PATIENTS ARE LIVING IN CARDBOARD BOXES IN ALLEYS AND BEING SHOT LIKE RABID DOGS IN THE STREET?

WHEN DID AMERICA BECOME SO MEAN?

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT CAN BE DONE TO CHANGE THIS? CAN YOU PLEASE WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU CARE?

PLEASE DO THAT FOR THE HOMELESS MAN AND WOMAN AND CHILD LIVING IN AN ALLEY NEAR YOU.

Y'all, I just found out that mental patients who are prisoners - and all prisoners for that matter - may again soon be used as lab rats for pharmaceutical companies.

Maybe that is why we cannot get them into hospitals or community care.

Look for my next article: IS AMERICA'S PRISON SYSTEM LEGALIZED SLAVERY?

Thank you for all you do to get these social issues out front. Nothing I try to do would matter without your support - noting and commenting. Try to DIGG my articles, will you? You know that I am censored because of the events detailed in this website:
