How many armed mentally ill people will it take before this crisis in Rappahannock County is addressed?
Mental health, whether cognitive or psychiatric, is a medical issue, like diabetes. It should be addressed before it becomes a law enforcement issue.
Do the [Rappahannock County Sheriff’s] deputies hold medical licenses? This crisis should not fall on the sheriff’s office to solve. The sheriff’s office is not a roving mental health facility.
Guns and poor mental health are not a good mix at any time of year.
