A much used phrase to describe a person nobody wants to take hold of.
It really takes an extra-ordinary amount of people to get someone showing signs of ‘madness’ locked up for our safety…
A girl of 13 was knifed to death in a park on a half-term day out by a woman with a history of psychiatric problems, it emerged last night.
Casey Kearney managed to phone 999 from her mobile and told the operator she had been stabbed in what police said was a ‘random and unprovoked’ attack.
Children playing in the town centre park who saw her slump to the ground then watched in horror as she struggled to breathe before they ran to get help.
She died in hospital and last night police charged Hannah Bonser, 26, of Doncaster, with murder and two counts of possession of a bladed article. She will appear before Doncaster magistrates this morning.
Witnesses have told of seeing a woman, clearly drunk and swearing loudly, on the day of the murder.Officers revealed the suspect was known to a ‘number of agencies’, believed to include a local NHS trust and the council’s social services department.
Another example of why shutting down mental health units is a really bad idea…
any odds on how long it will be before the cops get the blame?
