Florida Baker Act
In the State of Florida we have the Baker act
Originally it was intended to detain people with homicidal or suicidal ideation. Now it’s being used to detain anyone who is “suspected of having a mental illness”
It’s worth noting that “mental illness” is a broad, vague and poorly defined concept.
It’s also worth noting that there is no one who reads you your rights
You are not guaranteed a lawyer, or one phone call or a trial with a jury of your peers.
Many people have to file a writ of Habeus corpus and the detaining entity has access to dangerous
chemicals and often provides these to detained persons.
I am deeply concerned about this entire process.
