If we see blatant threats or violent statements, we use the alert function and let the mods, supermods, admins, and amigos figure it out.

With all the issues surrounding the killer (alledged) in AZ, and his involvement on ATS, what do we do, what should we do, if we see it again?
This may be a sensitive subject but what if we find another person acting erratically here? And who would define it? Heck, sometimes I ramble. Are the cops going to kick down my door next because I vented here?
This also speaks to the larger question, what is our role in society when we notice someone like that? I'd hate the idea of a police state and people turning in neighbors just because they may be weird. Heck, I'm weird.
What should we do?
