      Blue Springs, MO

My son went to the Emergency room at local hospital and said he was suicidal on August 30, 2011. RANDY WANTED HELP.
He was bipolar and was not on his meds.( Many people who are bipolar stop taking their meds ). Im sure he was frustrated He no doubt felt the medical profession let him down.. For whatever their reason for not admitting him, they released him. A few hours later he intentionally ran out on an interstate in front of an oncoming semi. My son is dead. He left his 10yr old daughter behind along with other family members. If they had admitted him right then (and he couldnt sign himself out ), got him on his meds and stabilized him, which takes at least 3 weeks, my son would be alive today.  A month or so later, the Medical Examiner told me Randy had nothing in his system that would influence his actions that evening.Randy was my first born child and very much wanted. Not only did this ER neglect my son, they have devastated me and our family for the rest of our lives. This MUST be stopped. I am sure Randy isnt the only one hospital ER's have turned suicidal people away. Once someone comes in to an ER and say they are suicidal, there must be a mandatory 3 week hold on them to get them stabilized.. PLEASE help other Mothers and family members from losing  their child or loved one. It can be done with your help. RANDY DIDNT WIN IN THIS LIFE, HELP HIM WIN NOW !!.  PLEASE SIGN RANDY'S PETITION. Thank you !

      I know if you pass this on to your friends and they pass it on to their friends, etc. RANDY may have a good chance. He went for help but got turned away. I am positive he would never want anyone to feel like he did. ALONE with no one caring whether he lived or died.
      PLEASE SHARE WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN AND HAVE THEM SHARE ALSO. . I PRAY THIS TIME RANDY WILL BE HEARD AND OTHERS WILL BE HELPED.
      THANK YOU. Randy's Mom. <3

      We must get more and more signatures to send to the US Congress and the state of Missouri, hoping other states will follow. Hospital ER did not admit him when he said he was suicidal. Randy intentionally ran out in front of an oncoming semi on an interstate the same day. If the hospital had kept him, he would still be alive.

      I live with bipolar disorder, and know well how difficult it can be for families and for us. I've also been suicidal, and attempted suicide, and understand how it feels to tell someone about what's going on, ask for help, and not get any...or worse yet, have them decide you're just looking for attention, or being stupid. Suicide is a serious issue...when someone reaches out for help, THEY NEED TO BE HELPED! If someone is showing suicidal tendencies or self-harming, we need to help them whether they want our help or not! As for Randy's situation, that little girl will never forget what happened to her Daddy...she will probably even develop survivor's guilt, like I did when I found out my Grandpa had killed himself because he refused to be treated for his emphysema. It may take years for this little girl to recover from this traumatic event. This sort of thing doesn't have to happen! Please support this cause.
