So the question has to become this...why did the parents call the cops in the first place? If he wasn't really that bad of a threat, why take the
time to call the police?
Are they now trying to downplay the psychotic episode?
They said he was only 18 years-old and Schizophrenic, the parents obviously knew he was prone to psychotic episodes and in North Carolina, there are
two places they could send him for help, Dorothea Dix and Camp Buttner.
It doesn't seem rational for parents to become so frightened that they call the police for help, if the boy was not that threatening. Obviously he
was very dangerous if his parents felt that unsafe. The police would have sent him to one of those places, but they didn't. And if two policemen were
restraining him, that means he was more than just psychotic.
A lady in the building I live at had a psychotic episode and this little lady of 90 pounds fought off three policemen, two firemen and two paramedics.
When they finally got her on the gurney she broke the gurney straps. The police here didn't shoot her. So there must have been something more going
on with this kid that his parents don't want to talk about, after all, they are the ones who felt threatened enough to call the police in the first
