The Eye-Gouging Perpetrator Didn’t Get a Reduced Sentence Due to His Mental Illness, Still Sentenced to Five Years

Mental incapacitation, temporary insanity did NOT work, not this time!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Locals are Worried, that “He May be Back Here Way Too Soon”, the Female Store Clerk is still in Recovery, the Families Told the Press, “No Comment”

The shocking eye-gouging case last year in Pingdong, the man, Yang was upset that the store clerk, Pan reminded him to mask up, he’d strangled her neck, and, gouged her eyes out with his bare hands; two months before this, Yang had hacked another woman to injury, the D.A. charged him on attempted murder and aggravated assault.  The Pingdong District Court found Yang guilty of assault and attempted murder, sentenced him to five years yesterday, this can still be appealed.

On September 26th of last, Yang was displeased at how Pan the store clerk reminded him to mask up, he’d assaulted her, causing her to sustain a broken nose, fracture in her left eye socket, and damages on her eyes.  After the incident, the police found that on June 30th of last, Yang used a butcher’s knife to attack and elderly woman, the victim sustained injuries on her left neck, her abdomen, it was the workers in the shop who stepped up, to stop Yang from murdering the elder.

Because Yang was diagnosed with schizophrenia, he was forced into treatment for over a month for hacking the elderly woman, after the hospital assessed him as stabilized, they’d released him, and in September, he’d committed the eye gouging case.

The Collectivist Court believed, that Yang hacking the woman down, after he was subdued, he’d immediately stopped attacking, and, didn’t chase after the victim as she’d left, and, sentenced him on physical assault charges for a year two months; and the attack on the female clerk was an attempted aggravated assault, he got sentenced to four years for that.  He is to serve a total of five years.

And, although Yang was a schizophrenic, but the courts didn’t find that he couldn’t control his actions due to his conditions to the point that he couldn’t tell his behaviors from right or wrong, not given him a reduced sentence.

As the local villagers heard the verdict, they’d all claimed that it was too lenient, worried that Yang “may return way too soon”.  After the incidents, the families moved away, and the elderly father couldn’t adapt to the new place, moved back to the countryside, and lived alone, and had gotten lost many times as he rode out on his scooter.

The Collectivist Courts told, that the crimes of attempts, fitted to the reductions of sentencing, that attempted aggravated assault is anywhere from two and a half years to six years in prison, and, considering all the facts, four years is, fitting.

After Pan’s release from the hospitals, she’d moved into a relative’s home to recover, she’s now in stable condition, the county social services department will conduct a third counseling for her.  The families refused to express anything toward the verdict.  The owner of the super convenience shop told, that Yang still in insured by the store, that she is still an employee, hoped that she would come back to work after she’d made her recovery.

And so, this psycho did NOT get that reduction of his sentence, due to his mental conditions, and he shouldn’t, because, what he did was awful, it’d caused the victim to lose her eye sight, and on top of that, he’d lost control, and assaulted an elder with a butcher’s knife, and having someone like that living in the neighborhood is like having a bomb, waiting to explode at any given time, and if this man gets a reduced sentence, then, the entire neighborhood would be, unsafe.

The Repeated Offenses of the Perp Who’d Gouged the Eyes of a Super Convenience Store Clerk Out Charged

Another schizophrenic here!  And he’d, done it, AGAIN!  And you still don’t think these severe mental patients deserve to be put in that straightjacket and lock away from society so the world around is safer???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Suspect Was Listed as a Patient with Schizophrenia, the D.A. Evaluated and Believed that He Could Tell Between Right & Wrong, He was Responsible for Charges of Attempted Murder, and Aggravated Assault

The man, who has schizophrenia, Yang gouged out the eyes of a female store clerk last year in Kaoshu County in Pingdong, the case shocked the society, three months prior, he’d hacked another woman, Yang to serious injury, the Pingdong D.A.’s office based off of the psych evaluation, and believed that during the times Yang was committing both crimes, he was able to tell between right and wrong, and, indicted him on attempted murder and aggravated assault changes yesterday; Yang was transferred to the Pingdong D.A.’s Office yesterday, the judge mandated that he remain in police custody.

The indictment stated, that on September 26th of last year, the fifty-year-old Yang felt displeased over how the twenty-nine-year-old store clerk, Pan told him to mask up, to smoke elsewhere, he rammed into the store, beaten Pan, suppressed her neck, then, gouged her eyes with his bare fingers, the attacks continued for more than two minutes.  The victim sustained a socket fracture on her left eye, and injuries of conjunctivitis, hospitalized for nineteen days, and, almost lost her sight entirely.

Yang, because his mother and the woman, Fang had land disputes, they’d had a physical confrontation, and he’d held a grudge against the woman, in the midnight hours of June 30th of last year, at a local breakfast shop, he’d met Fang, he’d first swung at the woman, hit her head, then, started kicking her n the chest, then, used the butcher’s knife behind the counter to attack, and the shop owner blocked him off, that’s how Fang didn’t get murdered.

Yang had schizophrenia, and a person of concern under the local department of health and sanitations, he was arrested on the day he’d gouged the female cashier’s eyes out, the police placed him in protective custody to the hospital based off of the mandates, and after a little over a month’s treatment, he was released last year on November 4th; the D.A. believed that Yang was suspected of aggravated assault and attempted murder, that there’s a high chance he will commit the crimes again, asked the courts to take him into custody, the courts signed off.

The D.A. stated, that both cases were sent to psych evaluation, which both found, that at the time, Yang knew that his behaviors were unlawful, that he was able to control his own actions, that he didn’t qualify or the reduced sentence of Penal Code 19, and prosecuted him.

As Pan had been discharged from the hospital, she’d stay4ed in her relative’s home to recuperate; the county government told, that she still needed to return to the Changgang Hospital for her follow-ups, that her eyes still felt uncomfortable, she’s still in recovery, and couldn’t work, that if she needs help in finding employment, the county will assist.

The head of the village locally, Chang told, that he’d felt relieved, at the news of Yang continuing being in police custody, that it’d set the minds of the local villagers at ease; Yang’s families all moved away since, nobody could control him, he hoped, that the laws can, punish him severely.

And so, these are, the ticking time bombs of the societies, you do NOT know what might set them off, or when they may get agitated to attack, and, keeping these mentally ill individuals in lock up permanently may be the only solution there is, to keep the world safer.

The Case of Arson in the Buddhist Shrine Killing Seven the Man Received Life-Term Instead of the Death Penalty

It took the justice systems, THREE whole YEARS, to decide what to do with this man who’d, committed arson, and murdered his own elders in cold blood, well, that took, long enough, and to the families of the victims, this does not seem like, justice at all, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The arson case of Yujing, Tainan from three years ago that resulted in seven deaths, two injuries, the first trial the courts found that the suspect, Tseng had premeditation of committing arson and murdering, used an extremely cruel measure, had no humanities, sentenced him to death; the second trial considered that Tseng had been diagnosed with a severe mental condition that was left untreated from his younger years, causing his bad behaviors, yesterday, the death penalty was overturned, and life-in-prison was given to him as punishment.  This can still be appealed.

The man in charge of the Buddhist Shrine, Chang stated, that the tragedies happened, and, Tseng shall be judged for his crimes; for the three years, the families of those who’d died worked hard to let go of their hate, hoping, to return themselves back to their, original, peaceful state of mind in living.

Tseng was taken by eight bailiffs to the courts to hear his verdict, during the verdict of his first trial, he’d gotten worked up and started gesturing to the news media, as he’d learned he got life in prison yesterday, he’d remained, silent.  The seven members of the families of those who died weren’t present, only stated their opinions on paper, they’re still not done, grieving for the losses of their loved ones yet.

The Collectivist Courts believed, that Tseng was fitted to the U.N.’s laws to get punished, considering how he’d started showing severe psychological disorders, and didn’t get the proper treatment, “it’s necessary, to avoid passing down the death penalty to those who are inept.”

And besides, after Tseng committed the murders, he’d, immediately called it in, subjectively, his turning himself in helped the investigators quickly get to the case to understand what had happened; Tseng’s parents blamed themselves for the outcomes of his behaviors, had already directly or indirectly, paid the sums of the victims of their son’s crime already.

And so, this man should’ve received the DEATH penalty, but due too his mental conditions, he’d, escaped death, instead, he received a life-sentence, which is just as well, because now, he is going to get tortured by his own guilty conscience over what he did, but to the families of victims, I’m sure, they would much rather see him get executed.

After the Psychologically Ill Man Hacked His Own Mother to Death, He’d Cried Out, “Someone, HELP My MOTHER!”

The man’s mental illness left untreated, that’s, caused his own mother to be, MURDERED by him!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

There was the tragic news of a mother being murdered by her son in Taoyuan yesterday, the man, Tseng, was suspected of murdering his own mother, Chen, with a butcher’s knife, with whom he lives with.  The police, fire department broke down the door, found Chen lying in a pool of blood, already dead, Tseng was covered in blood, and was found, hiding on the balcony, in a daze.  The police found the records of Tseng having been treated for a mental condition, but not registered as a mentally ill person, as they took him to the hospital under police custody, they’d charged him with murder, after the D.A. reviewed the facts, asked the courts to keep him in custody, the courts signed off on it.

The police found, that the thirty-one-year-old Tseng lives on the fourth floor of an apartment with his mother in Pingzhen District, Chen took care of Tseng by herself.  At around six in the morning, the neighbor, Liao heard Chen called for help and immediately called the police, and Tseng started crying shortly thereafter, “help, save my mother!”; as the police and firefighters arrived the door was locked from the inside, they broke it down, entered into the living room, where they saw a huge pool of blood, with Tseng’s mother lying in it, no sign of life, and there was a butcher’s knife next to her body, that was suspected of being used as a murder weapon.

The police found the injuries are around the head, and the neck on the victim’s body, they’d suspected, that the victim was hit by the butcher’s knife on the head, then, hacked to death.  They’d followed the blood trails, and found Tseng hidden out on the balcony without the railings, he’d sat, stood, and attempted to leap off.  The police immediately arrested him, found him to have lacerations on his head, took him to the hospital under custody, where he’d received twenty plus stitches, he’s not in life-threatening danger.

Based off of understanding, Tseng is diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, suffers severely from auditory hallucinations, delusions, also severe depression, early yesterday morning, he’d heard a voice telling him to kill his mother and himself, wanted him to “murder her”, and saw a shadow that attached to his mother, which caused him to attack his own mother and himself; Tseng’s father already died, he and his mother were all each other had, and, the relatives knew that he’d had multiple records of hospitalizations, but he’d not taken his medications like he was supposed to.

And so, this, is what you get, when you have schizophrenia, left, untreated, you will have the hallucinations, the delusions, and this man probably won’t get charged with murdering his own mother and get punished for the crime, because of his mental disorder.

The Holes in the Security Nets of Society: the Case Had Been Discharged Many Times Before, and Passed the Psych Evaluations of the Professional Psychiatrists

How safe, are we, if the psych ward can’t, even, correctly identify the dangerous who might harm others, huh???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The social security nets is the vital policies of the president, Tsai, yet, there were the repeated cases of attacks on locals in Pingdong by someone with schizophrenia, the female super convenience store clerk had been severely wounded, and the president’s policies are questioned.  The head of the county, Pan stated, that this is a serious problem, a lesson learned, that he will, evaluate the laws more closely.  The psychiatrists suggested the families to get their loved ones into treatment, to not go soft of these individuals with these conditions.

Based off of understanding, Yang, the assailant from eleven years, had similar records, started in 2017, he was treated, and categorized as “difficult to cure”, every time he was admitted to the psych wards, he’d started crying that he wanted to be, released.  Pan said, Yang had been in and out of the hospitals multiple times, and had been evaluated closely each and every time, other than the related rules, all the assessment made for his discharge went through the professional evaluation of the psychiatrists.  But, the patient had injured others multiple times, Pan stressed that he’d already, requested that the hospital enforce a stricter rule of evaluation, and the man will be admitted to the psych ward as a long-term resident now.

The C.E.O. of the Pingdong Clinical Psychologist Association, Hu told, that the case has violent tendencies, always used threats of violence on others, that she’d advised to have him locked up long-term.  If the families wanted to take him home, then, they must learn how to interact with the case, to avoid violence, to change their ways of, interacting, relating to him from before.

a place like this then…photo from online

Hu said, that psychological disorders aren’t a “get-out-of-jail free card”, the penal code 19 states, that punishments shall be waived if the individual can’t tell the difference of right and wrong behaviors due to psychological disorders, or other mental conditions.  But, the third of penal code 19 also stated that “unfitting to be used if the act of harm was intentional, or the individual admitted to knowing what’s right and wrong!”, and, if treatments aren’t given, there will be, the criminal charges enforced.

Hu suggests that the family seek out help as early as they possibly can, a lot of the families, due to their lack of understanding of the psychological disorders, are afraid, with the communications with the trained professionals, they can accumulate the skills to caring for their loved ones, and can, more easily, avoid similar acts of violence from recurring.

and this is the modern-day “version” of the psych ward…

And so, this, is due to the lack of education, because the families aren’t trained like the professionals at the hospitals, they couldn’t offer the help that these mental patients needed to recover, and, if these mental patients aren’t getting the help they needed, then, some will become, violent, if they have the violent prior tendencies.  The system of evaluation is still, too loosened, too, lacking in this case.

She’d Murdered Her Own Mother, Gotten High on Drugs, in a Daze for Five Hours…Then, Turned Herself in, to the Police

From the Front Page Sections, a tragedy of a family, translated…

She was displeased at her mother’s words, “You had dragged me and your younger sister down with you”, after she’d murdered her mother, she’d told her younger sister, “You’re finally free”, her younger sister told, “We had a very unhappy childhood…”

A thirty-one year-old woman Pan in Kaohsiung, because she hadn’t gotten along with her own mother for long period of time, two afternoons, she’d bought a fruit knife, gone to her mother’s place, to confront her, Pan started stabbing her mother using the fruit knife twice on the right side of her mother’s neck, the fifty-three year-old mother died, had her throat slit.

After Pan had murdered her mother, she’d started using ketamine, and fell into a daze next to her mother’s corpse, and five hours later, she’d told her younger sister what she’d done, told her younger sister, “You’re now, delivered from pain”, and was accompanied by her sister, to turn herself in.  After the D.A.s interrogated her, they’d asked her to be taken into custody, which was approved.

The police investigated, that Pan had medical history of being diagnosed with bipolar, is currently unemployed, and got into a drug habit, lived with her mother, who has a mildly mental illness manual, also diagnosed with bipolar mother, and the two of them would argue a lot, over the smallest matters.  A week ago, after Pan had a verbal altercation with her mother, her mother kicked her out of the house, and changed the lock on the door, and so, Pan could only move in with her younger sister.

When the police interrogated her, Pan told them, that lately, her mother had come to her younger sister’s place to harass her, she’d gotten more and more furious, as she thought about it, two afternoons ago at five in the afternoon, she’d gone to the marketplace, bought a fruit knife, at close to six in the evening, she ran back to her mother’s house, after the mother opened the door, they’d started fighting again shortly; the mother just kept putting her down over, and over, and over, and cussed at her, “You are the one who was dragging both me and your younger sister down!”, in a moment of heated anger, she took out the knife, SLASHED her mother on the right side of her neck twice hard, her mother fell, and, blood came pouring out of her neck.

In the process of hacking up her own mother, she’d accidentally cut herself on the left side of her own palm, she’d dressed her own wound, and washed the knife off, sat on the chair next to her mother’s dead body, started using ketamine; she left, at around a little past ten in the evening, rode her motorcycle to her younger sister’s, she’d accompanied her mother’s corpse for almost five hours after she’d killed her.

The moment Pan saw her younger sister, she’d told her, “I’d saved you from your miseries!”, the sister became confused at what she meant, and, after she’d forced the truth out of her sister, she’d learned that her older sister had murdered her mother; after the younger sister consoled with her for an hour, Pan finally turned herself in to the police in the early morning hours.

The police investigated, that Pan had two prior records of domestic violence, four years ago, she’d injured her own mother with a knife, after the police were called, they’d reported the incident to the Department of Social Services; last year in September, Pan became verbally abusive toward her mother, the mother notified the police, but never got a restraining order.

The man in charge of the local borough said, that Pan’s parents were divorced when she was young, eleven years ago, her mother moved into the borough with her, and back then, Pan still had a job, but five years ago, she got fired, and took to drug abuse, and, that, was when everything started going south; because neither the mother and her had work, they’d lived off of the mother’s handicap payments by the government, as well as her younger sister’s support, and the two of them would often argue about money, and, every time when the mother was unhappy, she’d kicked her daughter out.

The police disclosed, that because Pan didn’t have any money, she’d often starved, in the first half of March, she’d once taken a knife, to rob a super convenience store, called, “I’m going to ROB you!”, begged the cashiers to call it in, because she wanted to be on the “free meal plans of jail”.

After the incident, Pan’s younger sister didn’t blame her, and, toward the inquiries of the outside, she’d started crying, told, that her mother had been emotionally unstable for long term, would kick the doors down, and use verbal insults on the two of them a lot, that they had a very unhappy childhood, “Nobody would kill her/his mother without reasons at all.”, this was all too painful, for her older sister too.

The coroner examined, that the cause of Pan’s mother’s death was from the loss of too much blood of the severing of her right carotid, as well as her windpipes.

And so, she finally CRACKED, and, this, is still a BUILD-UP over time, and, because the woman was high on drugs, she’d become impulsive, and, unable to judge her own behaviors, and this, could’ve been avoided, had someone STEP in earlier, but, it wasn’t, because this had gone on, for WAY too long, and this time, the woman finally CRACKED!!!

Marching Out of the Valleys of Depression, Don’t Give Up on the Treatments

Translated…

The incidence of the German Wings airplane, hitting into a mountain, causing 150 passengers to die, and, the black box that’s already been recovered shed some light to what actually happened, and the officials believed, that the crash was caused by the copilot, and confirmed that he had a history of depression, and had been hospitalized due to his suicidal attempts.

In recent years, because of the advances in medicine, the mental illness of depression became better known and understood, but, what is certain was, that depression CAN be treated, and the methods of treatment rnaged from biological, psychological and social ways, the writer of this article had been assisting patients long term, and offers a couple of suggestions, to make the treatments better accepted:

  1. Losing the Bad Reputation: the causes of psychological disorders are related to one’s physical wellbeing, getting treatment after being ill can greatly improve the chance of healing, from before, when the psychological disorders were thought to be untreatable, most of those who have it feel ashamed for having the troubles, and even stayed away from the doctors, this can only cause the illnesses to get worsened.

Actually, there are a wide variety of medication for depression to choose from, plus the variations of group of client-centered therapies, as well as family therapies, so long as the individuals are willing to face their conditions, not giving up on the treatments, there’s a huge chance that their lives are going to get normal.

2. Improving the Social Support Systems: the moods of the depressed individual can be improved with the help of medication, and, if the families and friends around the person are willing to listen, to accompany, it would help improve the motivation of the patients to get treated, and, the family can also help reduce the stressors in the living environment, thus, greatly reduces chances of relapses.

3. Be Patient as One is Undergoing Treatment: psychological illnesses are a long-term condition, even though, there are no apparent symptoms, the follow-ups are still needed, following a routine is a must, for instance, stay away from smoking, alcohol, illegal substances, not staying up all night long, pay special attention to one’s diets, sleep, exercises, etc., etc., etc., and, there are bound to be side effects to the medications, and you can learn, to adjust to accommodate yourselves to these side effects.

4. Establish a Sense of Pathology: most of those who were diagnosed, after treatment, will come to know one’s own condition better, and would worry that one might have moments of weakness where one does something one regrets, and so, the professionals encouraged to accompany those who were diagnosed with depression, other than going into therapy, the reminders of helping the patients feel better when the patients are beginning to spiral downward is also very important.This, is in the light of the airplane crash, where the pilot was depressed, but was still allowed to fly, and, it’s all in hindsight too, had this person gone through the needed measures for the treatment of his own depression, then, so many lives would’ve been spared, but they weren’t, and this, is still all, hindsight, working ITS magic!

The plane crash was very awful, but, we wouldn’t stay off of airplanes for the rest of our lives, because we knew, that this, was just an accident, that we can reduce the risks of it happening again, by applying the needed measures, like facing the psychological illnesses, the public can use a more proactive, more accepting attitude, through working in all areas, from prevention to treatment, to help those who are diagnosed, to have as normal a life as they possibly can.

This, is in the light of the airplane crash, where the pilot was depressed, but was still allowed to fly, and, it’s all in hindsight too, had this person gone through the needed measures for the treatment of his own depression, then, so many lives would’ve been spared, but they weren’t, and this, is still all, hindsight, working ITS magic!

The Young Mother Who Was Saved from Suicide, “I’d Strangled My Two Children to Death”

From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A young married woman, Lin, awhile back, took her two young kids to commit suicide by overdosing, the two kids are dead, the woman was rushed to the hospital and is now, out of danger, the police officers yesterday went to interrogate Lin, she’d cried and told them that she was emotionally unstable that day, that she’d fed her kids some medication, waited until they passed out, then, strangled them both.

Lin was very emotional when the police interrogated her, mentioned how “in the current world, there’s nothing keeping us here, I don’t want to let them live, so they’d have to weather through more pains in the futures”, “After I’d killed them both, I’d tried committing suicide.”

Lin said, in the little over six years, she’d been troubled by mental difficulties, went to two clinics to see doctors, and got medicines, later she’d gone off her meds, and in the past year, she’d started back on them once more.

On the 27th of last month, in the afternoon, she’d driven her kids to Kenting, and, on the way, she’d become emotionally unstable again, and gone off the freeways, bought some fast food at a fast food joint in Mingshyong, then, took her kids to a motel, mixed the pills into their drinks, waited until her kids passed out, she’d strangled them, her daughter tried to fight, then, she’d strangled her daughter with a rope, then, she’d downed the rest of the pills.

Lin said, she wanted to commit suicide, and didn’t want to leave her kids, to become burdens to her families, decided to take them with her, that, was why she’d strangled them to death.  Lin also said, that she and her husband were getting along very well, other than the occasional altercations, there was NO economic stresses, nor was there affair on her husband’s part, or domestic violence.

After Lin woke up yesterday, the family members consoled her that everything was all right, that the kids are fine, that they’d been taken back to Taichung already, but Lin knew, that she’d killed her kids by strangulation, as the police was about to interrogate her, she’d started crying, and when she told them how she’d strangled her kids, she was crying so hard she couldn’t even talk, said that she is in deep regret.

Yesterday as the coroner’s autopsied the young children, they’d found that the muscles of the young girl’s hyoid muscles had hemorrhages, and that there were finger markings on her neck, that she’d died of suffocation, the coroners then took samples of the internal organs, and sent the sample to the justice department to determine if there are drugs in the systems.  Because Lin had histories in depression, she’s still in the I.C.U., with the police, keeping a close eye on her.

And so, this mother has a history of depression, and, she didn’t want to keep her kids on this earth without her, so that, was why she’d killed them first, then, attempted suicide, and now, she’s going to have to live with the fact, the guilt, that she’d MURDERED her own young, for what?  Her own selfish reasons!

A Young Married Woman Failed in Her Suicide Attempt, and Her Children Had Died

With a history of mental illness here, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

A woman, Lin, aged 32, with a history of depression, two afternoons ago, she took her eight year-old daughter and three-year-old son, checked into a motel, yesterday, they were found, to have passed out from overdosing on sleeping pills, the two children were found dead, after Lin passed out, she was taken to the hospitals, and is now, out of danger.  Lin left four notes, but without stating why she attempted suicide, and her husband blamed himself, “I didn’t spend enough time with my wife.”

Lin who lived in Taichung, two afternoons ago, at around two, texted her husband, said that she was taking the kids on a trip.  Drove the imported sedan south to Mingshyong, Chiayi, checked into a motel, the three of them didn’t head out again.

Yesterday at around noon, they didn’t check out, the room service workers went inside, saw all three of them wearing casual clothes, with the quilts on them, and, they couldn’t wake them up.  As the fire department and paramedics came, they took Lin who’d passed out to the hospital, but her two children had already died.

The police found letterheads from the hotel, which Lin wrote four separate notes on, thanking her parents, saying goodbye to her friends, but without the reasons of her suicide attempt; other than showing her gratitude toward her husband, she believed that she was a block in his career, wanted him to move on with his life, to work hard at what he did, “The kids and I will watch over you from up in heaven.”

Relatives from Lin’s family, as well as her husband’s side of the family rushed to the scene, and started crying, Lin’s mother cried until she passed out several times, seeing her grandson’s dead body, she’d called out, “My good grandchild!”  The police discovered an empty bag from a fast food shop, and an empty pill box, with eighty sleeping pills, with a bottle of sorghum whiskey, there was vomit inside the trash can.

Lin’s husband told the police, that these couple of days, his wife acted normally, and they didn’t get into an argument either.  Later on, as he’d gone to the funeral homes to make the arrangements, he’d mentioned that two days ago, they fought, and, in the afternoon, his wife took the kids out, he’d searched for them the entire night.  The family members mentioned how both he and his wife have forceful personalities.

The D.A. confirmed that Lin had a history of mental depression, and experienced the emotions to the extremes; the two children showed positive to drug reactions, they will be autopsied next week.  The D.A. said, that the children may have been enticed, and force fed the drugs, causing them to die, that Lin may have gotten involved in murder, and that they will pursue the case.

Yesterday, Lin’s comatose rose to a level three, there was clearly, remains of drugs, she was kept in the ICU for observations.  The hospital said that her vital signs were stabilized, that after the effects of the drugs she took wore off, she will regain her consciousness.  The super at Lin’s residence said, that he’d often watched the whole family leave home happy, and they’d interacted very close, that they don’t look like a family that had problems.

The school where Lin’s daughter attended said, that the parents interacted with the teachers well, the children were very active and outgoing, that they’re “very surprised” that something like this had happened.

So, we don’t know what caused this woman to CRACK, but one thing’s for certain, because she didn’t want to live anymore, she’d ended up, murdering her own offspring, and, maybe, in her mind, she believed that she’s doing them right, by taking them with her, and, this, would be the worst case scenario, of how depression, left untreated ends.

His Delusion, Triggered by Stress

Ever since when he was a teen, whenever he felt stressed out, he’d started, having, delusions, but, he hadn’t realized, that his delusions were, triggered, by stress at all…

His delusions, triggered by stress, and, it took him, multiple decades, for him, to finally figure it all out, the sources, of his delusions.  It took him, on that journey inward, and, it was, not an easy ride toward the inner core of his own mind.

His delusions, triggered by stress, but, there’s, absolutely, NO way, that he can possibly, eliminate, ALL the stresses from his life now, is there?  Of course not, as we all must, deal with, the insurmountable number of stress factors that are constantly, ongoing, in our lives.

His delusions, triggered by stress, that, is the way it goes, and yet, there is, NO sure method, to, eliminate, ALL sources of stressors in his life, and so, he will, forever be, troubled, by his delusions, until the day that he died………
