Mark Wilsui says he called police when his 18-year-old, 90 lb. son had a screwdriver that he would not let go.
Don't call the police for such trivial matters ... the parents could have just left the bldg if they felt threatened (and should in any event if they feel threatened, right?)
Wilsui says his son, Keith Vidal had schizophrenia and was having an episode Sunday afternoon at their home on the 1100 block of President Road in Boiling Spring Lakes
Having an episode? And why did not the father handle it? Oh, right .. he was worried he would be killed by his kid poking him with the tool he held in his hand .... so, he called the police who carry guns and are told to kill others who may harm them or other cops.
Sucks....but if you are the one responding, you gonna take a screwdriver to the brain from a 18yr old having a fit?
Also, you know when 3 cops are around, someone's likely gonna be getting hurt.
I was not there so I cannot say if it was justified ...
But its a good post with the moral of the story: don't call cops to your own house ... deal with issues that crop up yourself...
