What???? What I mean is, did

What???? What I mean is, did he get all dressed up to go visit the elderly female at the park or was he already in the park with his mother or .... How do you attempt to make sexual comments to someone? You either make them or you don't or did the elderly woman close her ears...... Nakashia, you need some grammar lessons. You have the who, where and why, but I'm not so sure about the what.

The nature of this story is

The nature of this story is such that the scenario will never make sense anyway. The man is mentally ill and off his meds, which was unfortunate for everybody concerned and the pitbull as well.

I hate to read or hear of any

I hate to read or hear of any animal being killed, but in this case? I don't know, guess should say it's better the poor dog paid than the mom. I hope they keep this guy locked up somewhere! On med's or not, what happens next time he doesn't take it?? I don't know what ya'll are talking about, I read the article and understood it, wasn't that confusing to grasp what happened.

For heaven's sake, this man

For heaven's sake, this man belongs in a locked ward in a hospital on a permanent basis. His mother can't deal with him and he needs custodial supervision 24/7. There's no magic pill to make mental illness go away!

I understood Nikasha the

I understood Nikasha the first time. She lets the reader know that the source of her information is a police report. If you want to read between the lines, what PROBABLY transpired went something like this. One time there was this old boy named Sonny who lived near a park with his mother and her pit bull named SonnyBee. One day Sonny went to the park where he attempted to call a nosy old bird precisely the kind of gargon she was. He used the c-word and a couple of adjectives such as scaggy and scum-sucking. Of course the old hag went and told Sonny's mamma and caused a big scene. Sonny went and locked himself in the bathroom. "What you doin' in there?" his mamma asked. "Stabbin' the ol' pit bull," Sonny answered. His mamma, assuming this was some new euphemism, thought no more about it till she later found the bloody carcass of SonnyBee laying across the edge of the tub like a skint bathmat. That's when she called the law, animal control, DFACS, AFD and probably the old bat who squealed on Sonny to start with. Now everything's peaceful and nice. Sonny's got his Xanax, Mamma's sippin cisco, and SonnyBee's girlfriend has chewed both the old crone's arms off. THE END.

And of course the victim

And of course the victim wants her son back because he is a steady source of income and he was only off his meds. And of course the shrinks will increase his meds and declare that he is ok to go home now. No reason to keep him under lock and key, obviously he just gets a little lonely for some female companionship every now and then. I am just glad he didn't harm the older lady that he was trying to molest. And no, he isn't on the molester list as a possible sexual predator, he just dosen't know what he is doing all the time. And if the mother knew he went to the park alone and was off his meds (I am sure she buys the meds for him) what did she do and why isn't she watching him?

Two different letters written

Two different letters written by two different educated people. The ones that understood Niakasha's maybe could not understand ci. Right?

The mom was probably unaware

The mom was probably unaware that there are social service programs for the mentally ill where the casemanager goes to the home and helps the family/client with medication management. If the client continues to refuse to take meds, the client is sent to East Central Regional Hospital before things get out of hand.

I wouldn't necessarily say

I wouldn't necessarily say the mother wants him back for income. I wouldn't care what money my son had or didn't have, if he were ill I'd want him with me. That's the way most mothers are. In truth, no amount of money can ever compensate for living with someone that has severe mental illness.

Unaware of social programs?

Unaware of social programs? They seem to always know how to get other government (TAXPAYER PAID) benefits with no problems. I'll bet she knew that if he was institutionalized that SHE would lose the SSI disability benefit check every month.

The AC regularly reposts a story on consecutive days. The story is changed ever so slightly, but is essentially the same. Why leave this grammatical mess up without changes? The rewrite by cj was a thousand times better than the original by Ms Dicks and leaving both examples of writing up MUST be embarrassing for Nikasha.

You know, in all of this, I'm thinking about the mother. If you are reading this, please know that there is someone who is very sorry for what you have been through. I would not want to go through such a horrible experience. I hope that your son gets the help that he needs, and that you can achieve some peace by knowing he is getting that help. Mothers love their children, no matter what.
