NatGeo - DOOMSDAY Preppers Scammed this guy out of his wits (and his preps)
Only days after appearing on NatGEO's 'Doomsday Preppers' show, this former truck driver was submitted for a psych eval, and all of his weapons were CONFISCATED.

What does this teach us?

JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE PARANOID DOESN'T MEAN THERE ISN'T SOMEONE OUT TO GET YOU.

Please folks, if you prep, watch what you say and to whom you say it. Watch what you post and where you post it. And for goodness sakes, don't declare it on television.

From another site I can't link to here:

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) recently obtained close to 300 pages of documents, as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, detailing the federal agency’s “intelligence gathering” practices on the web.

(BTW, this article is linked on DRUDGE with the headline:
'Homeland Security' monitoring Internet for anti-govt sentiment, social unrest... )

Link to the documents mentioned in the article:

More from the article that I can't link to:

The documents obtained by EPIC indicate that following the exercise, a procurement official awarded an $11.3 million contract to General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems in order to carry out the monitoring on a “24/7/365 basis”.

I have seen the show before too and that's always something my husband and I talked about -- what about all their neighbors that now know they have stuff? What about... gosh, even though I am jaded & cynical now, I didn't expect it to be this 'public' of a chastising from TPTB.

Sure it was his 'Doctor' but COME ON. Suddenly NOW -- just after his show is on the air?

Agreed.

This fellow is not insane or even mentally unstable. I suspect he's lonely and depressed -- as would many people be in his condition.

Damn. If people weren't paranoid before, they ought to be now. This makes me sad...

We have a president who won't even put his heart over his hand for the Star Spangled Banner, and Los Angeles has their own Gestapo Command Center ready to take anyone down who "resists" while having an attack of insulin shock.

This is so sad. This guy lived a happy life on his own, not hurting people, just doing what he enjoyed doing. He's NOT suicidal and they take away his happiness to what, protect him? Such fucking bullshit. He seemed so defeated in the video...I wish this kind of shit didn't happen to people...its just crazy. AND! Is suicide illegal? Even if he was suicidal, leave the guy alone!!

Didn't know it was so easy in the US to not be allowed to own guns.
Simply being admitted to a hospital shouldn't be enough unless the psych found you with a problem.
People get admitted sometimes by mistake and get cleared and let out.

[link to blogs.psychcentral.com]

The “mentally defective” can breathe a little easier knowing that you are NOT prohibited from possession a gun or ammunition if your adjudication was set aside or expunged, you were released from mandatory treatment, supervision or monitoring, you no longer “suffer from the disabling mental health condition,” you have been “otherwise rehabilitated” or “adjudication or commitment was based solely on a medical finding without opportunity for hearing by the Federal department or agency with proper jurisdiction.”

Its akin to the idea that if you end up going to prison, you need to pick a fight with the biggest a-hole there and beat them to within an inch of their life, so that the rest of the thugs will see and decide not to mess with you.

In this case, you are the 'a-hole' and they are beating you down -- in this way the others will shrug and say -- well, if they beat him, there's no way WE can beat them.

And then they will just give up.

There's also the whole Normalcy Bias thing.

So just because it was his doctor that 'authorized' it, you think that was the whole ball of wax? Not that the show was a catalyst for his Doctor to put him in a psych eval?

Re: NatGeo - DOOMSDAY Preppers Scammed this guy out of his wits (and his preps)
I watched the video & couldn't make head or tails out of his story.

Seems like he went to a Dr for cest pains, and when the talk turned to doing invasive diagnostic procedures ("tubes" etc) he old the Dr that he didn't want to live that bad, that he was suicidal anyways. Then the Dr asked him if he had a plan and he said some sarcastic stuff about ways he could kill himself (like run through the projects dressed up in a wgite sheet).

That pretty much meets the criteria for an emergency suicide intervention -- when you want to die and have plans on how to do it. He refused treatment, and got forced into a hospital. The doctor was under a legal obligation to report tto authorities hat this person told him he was suicidal and had a plan, and that he had refused treatment. When he got picked up for a suicide watch and intervention, he didn't cooperate! Then he refused food in the facility.

The law was right on this one, he's classic suicidal depressed apocalypse guy.

Now, if his state decided people with suicide problems shouldn't have guns, that's between him and the people in his state who made that law, not the doctor and judge.
