The involuntary roundup of mentally ill New Yorkers has begun in what one can only define as a Hitleresk-style agenda that could turn into God knows what.
The news comes after New York City Mayor Eric Adams issued a directive on Tuesday allowing for the roundup and indefinite detainment of mentally ill individuals and people who cannot care for themselves.
The 62-year-old Democrat mayor told the press that the city needs to do some spring cleaning and obtain more space to handle the detainees, citing that these people cannot be left on the streets and in subway tunnels. No consent is needed, he said.
“I want to talk to you about a crisis we see all around us: People with severe and untreated mental illness who live out in the open, on the streets, in our subways — in danger and need,” said Adams.
“We see them every day, and our city workers are familiar with their stories: The man standing all day on the street across from the building he was evicted from 25 years ago, waiting to be let in. The shadow boxer on the street corner in Midtown, mumbling to himself as he jabs at an invisible adversary,” explained the mayor. “These New Yorkers and hundreds of others like them are in urgent need of treatment, yet often refuse it when offered.”
In response, the New York Civil Liberties Union fired back at Adams and issued a statement saying that the mayor was playing fast and loose with the legal rights of New Yorkers.
“The federal and state constitutions impose strict limits on the government’s ability to detain people experiencing mental illness — limits that the Mayor’s proposed expansion is likely to violate,” added the organization’s executive director Donna Lieberman. “The mayor’s attempt to police away homelessness and sweep individuals out of sight is a page from the failed Giuliani playbook. With no real housing, services, or support plan, the administration chooses handcuffs and coercion.”
In response to the news, some took to social media. Twitter user OctoberReignz Tweeted the trillion-dollar question: “How can any of this be legal?”
In the future, will people like Ye, a.k.a. Kanye West and Alex Jones, who the media calls “conspiracy theorists” and “truthers” be considered mentally ill? Will there be any end to this madness?
