  • Definitely needs to be nominated for father of the year award. Maybe husband of the century. Just kidding. I’m glad nobody was hurt.

  • I know this boy. He has mental handicaps that do not mix with drugs or alcohol. He is a very good guy when he takes his meds properly but his mom (“victim#2”) is his mother who seams to think giving her son’s meth is ok then calls the cops when he flipps out. B.S.

    • Totally agree

    • I could tell just by reading the story he has mental issues. I hope he finds the help he needs and his loved ones start helping instead of encouraging unhealthy behavior! I can’t wait till the mental health part of the jail is built because people with issues often just get worse in jail:(

  • he is good when he takes his meds?
    listen tho this crap!
    FEMA camp this guy!

    • So sorry everyone isn’t as perfect as you! All us mentally ill people bow down to you and all your perfection. I’m sure even if you where mentally ill you never would make the mistake of self medicating. Keep up the perfection buddy, your wayyyyyy better then the rest of us:)

  • Psych meds do not mix well with alcohol or drugs they’re doing new studies on what degree of mixing alcohol, and psych meds can cause you to go into acute an extreme psychosis .there also different degrees of bipolar now bipolar 1 and bipolar 2 it’s like a light switch going off and it sounds like this young man woke up out of sleep and just snapped.I’m seeing more and more of these cases popping up just like the other day ,and the guy getting cuffed up over by Winco. The man went crazy people with mental illness ,and trying to self-medicate with drugs ,and alcohol a bad combination.Mixed with the antidepressants seems to me that’s what’s going on besides all the other stuff going on in Humboldt . I hope he gets proper medication when he’s in jail

  • Thank God the Baby is alright.

  • Let me guess, the tweeker was on some kind of SSRI drug. The shit says in the warning label it couses psychosis, most of the mass shooters in the last 20 have been on one form or another and they still allow it to be peddled by the biggest drug dealers in the world, MDs.
