WTF? Vermont Mom Held in Psych Ward Against Her Will

article-0-1AF2CAB800000578-639_634x624Hear the one about the woman from Vermont whose estranged husband murdered their 14-year-old son and committed suicide?

Wait. That isn’t funny, is it?

Neither is this:

BURLINGTON, VT. –  A Vermont woman held against her will for more than five weeks at a psychiatric ward after her estranged husband killed their son and then hanged himself was ordered released by a judge Friday.

Christina Schumacher, 48, was ordered released immediately from Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington by Vermont Superior Court Judge Kevin Griffin, the Burlington Free Press reported.

Schumacher had been at the hospital since Dec. 19, a day after 14-year-old Gunnar Schumacher and 49-year-old Ludwig Schumacher were found dead in an Essex apartment. Police said the father strangled the high school freshman before he hanged himself. …

Griffin said in his ruling that he disagreed with a doctor’s assessment before Schumacher arrived for a regular appointment the day after the murder-suicide that she needed to admit herself or be taken into custody.

“The court did not find, by clear and convincing evidence, that Respondent was a person in need of treatment at the time of admission or application, nor a patient in need of further treatment at the time of the hearing,” Griffin wrote in his ruling. …

“I am not ill; I am simply a mother who is grieving the tragic loss of her young son,” Schumacher told the Burlington Free Press this week. “No mother should ever have to experience this loss.”

Schumacher told the newspaper that she and her insurance company had been billed for the unwanted treatment. …

Ludwig Schumacher was a former member of the Vermont National Guard and state Republican campaign official. Police said he left a typed suicide note in the apartment. [more here]

Yes but Republican!

There is also no truth to the scurrilous rumor that Vermont has more cows than people. But this is what can happen when the voters of a state are so disinterested in their government that a quack doctor can lock someone up and throw the key away, just because.

Real Vermont Joke:

Guy from Vermont: Hey you want to drive up and spend the weekend on my couch? We just got 2′ of snow!

Friend from New Jersey: Dude Vermont sucks, there’s nothing to do and everyone is a d*ckhead.

Guy from Vermont: Uh, okay (hangs up phone).

Dang! That wasn’t funny either!
