'Donald Trump told me I don't have to go.' Macon man refuses to leave Walmart, report says

It was after 11 o’clock on a recent Friday night when a Bibb County sheriff’s deputy answered a trespassing call at the Walmart on Zebulon Road. Inside the store, a man was “acting suspicious” and “refusing to leave,” the deputy’s write-up of the June 28 episode noted. The man, 39, informed the deputy that “the sheriff told him he could stay at Walmart if he wants to. (He) also stated his mother is a terrorist and he is scared to go home.” The deputy promptly called for medics to make sure the man was “mentally stable,” the report said. The report noted that a few minutes after the man was tended to, the man told the deputy, “I’m not going to the hospital,” in part because “Donald Trump told me I don’t have to go.” The man was then asked “several times” to leave before he was taken to the county jail on a trespassing charge.

1. Must be a Fox viewer.

A few nights in jail, with no Fox available, and he might recover.

2. One of the few instances I'll say "both sides bad"

...because neither side wants to talk about solutions. American conservatives want the mentally ill left in the street to die; many American liberals act as if mental illness is nothing more than an alternate lifestyle. Righties fear the cost, lefties fear coercion and abuse, and because a regulated and constantly-monitored system of treatment sounds like a lot of money and work, they'd just rather kick the can down the road and look the other way.

In the end it just means greater costs and more abuse.
