Omar Gonzalez has PTSD and served in Iraq from October 2006 to January 2008. He needs mental health help, not incarceration. This is part of the reason our prisons are over crowded…we have too many inmates who need mental health programs, not jails or prisons.
Since this is such a high profile incident, I am in hopes that he will receive the treatment he needs and not stay in some jail until they decide what to do with him. Who knows how long that could take.
(Not too many people can cross the White House lawn and enter the front door!) Shame on the Secret Service.
So, I will be following this story in hopes that it will turn out better than my pessimistic soul expects.
