Mentally ill roundup plan after train pushes

The city is making a major push to sweep the streets of dangerous, mentally ill New Yorkers — and has even compiled a most-wanted list, The Post has learned.

The measure follows a pair of high-profile subway-shove fatalities from December allegedly involving mentally ill individuals.

The city has already drawn up a list of 25 targets, sources said.

“After the Queens subway attack [of immigrant Sunando Sen], the [city] decided to take a proactive approach to track down the most dangerous mental-health patients that currently have mental-hygiene warrants” out for them, a law-enforcement source said.

Those warrants mean that the patients are not wanted for a crime but instead are being sought because they are not getting their court-ordered treatment.

There are a handful of cops assigned to the detail, which began working in the past few weeks, the source said.

Cops in the NYPD’s Real Time Crime Center are using high-tech methods to first track down the individuals, and detectives on the street have been assigned to then go after them and take them to hospitals, law-enforcement sources said.

In the past, the city Department of Health would ask cops for help finding mentally ill people who aren’t taking their court-mandated meds so they could be taken to clinics. But that only applied to those who had known addresses — and patients who went off the grid were rarely pursued, the sources said.

The city is now concerned it could be liable if one of those people goes off the rails and hurts someone — or themselves, the sources said.

    If this becomes an official city policy, then they’re just opening themselves up to massive lawsuits if the policy fails.

    You know, FAIL. Like liberalism.

    Some things just never change. Check out a movie called “Methadonia” some time. It is an HBO special from 2005 about the methadone culture in NYC, and the parade of personalities then is all too familiar today.

    Wait, didn’t the lefties demand decades ago that the mentally ill should all be set free from mental institutions to roam the streets in the wild? So, now they will be back to locking them up?

    From the article: ‘These patients could, of course, be dangerous, health officials noted.’

    The National Rifle Association has come under fire by an association of psychiatrists for its characterization of people WHO COMMIT VIOLENT CRIMES as “monsters,” “lunatics” and “insane.”

    I guess “the most dangerous mental-health patients that currently have mental-hygiene warrants” or ‘mentally ill’ is PC correct.

    Once upon a time in New York, way back in 1965, The New York Police had what was known as the “Vagrancy Squad” or the “Bum squad” as we knew it. It was a squad comprised of several officers, one of whom was in uniform, for identifation purposes. The squad used to round up vagrants in the subway and hotel vestibules and whereever poor, homeless, misfortunates used to congregate in the wee hours of the morning. The purpose of the pick up was to get these misfortunates not to be sleeping in the trains when people were going to work in the morning. Imagine a shit stinking hobo lieing on a seat when you are on your way to work? But there was more to that than just the inconvenience of New Yorkers.
    The attitude of the Squad, and I spoke to many of the Uniformed, was that these poor guys needed to be taken in for their own health. They needed to be deloused, cleaned up,fed, and clothed for a few days. Most of them were willing to go. There were occasional acts of violence, But that was taken care of. They especially liked to go willingly in the cold weather and around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
    They were usualy sent for mental and medical check up by the judge and then sent to Rikers Island for a clean up.
    Those considered mentally unstable were remander to Belview Hospital for evaluation. The bad ones were kept in confinment.
    All that ended when the ACLU won a case that the “BUM SQUADS” were unconstutional.
    My friend Joe Keegan was shot to death by a guy who was a known phsyco, but was released from
    Belvue.
    Now the Mayor of New York wants to round up What? Whjat the fuck is this asshole talking about?
    Has he consulted with thwe ACLU.?

    I always found it disturbing that hollywood chose alec to play Jack Ryan in the movies. Jack Ryan is the fictional character I would most like to become prez and alec is the least like human that I would want to see be prez.
