Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem in the USA is an almost total lack of ability to commitment except when laws, usually concerning illegal or illegally obtained drugs have been broken or alcohol has been abused. The result is that mental illness has led either to jail or to life on the street unless family can cope. And we have seen the consequences of that dilemma recently in Tuscon. What is the legal situation in Finland?
