What services are to check the welfare on him ?
Thank you Roger. You are such a helpful resource for our community.
APS Adult protectives services or SBSO Actually police can make the decision weather or not to call APS, or give him a 72 hour hold if that is the case. Call SO to check his welfare.
There goes the neighborhood
Suicides are up lately.
On my walk around 11:30am I came across a gathering of police cars at Channel Drive and Butterfly Lane. A few people I talked to there heard gunfire around 11am and discovered an older man had shot and killed himself on the beach. Very sad.
Seems like lots of bodies are found...weird.
I agree. Still somehow so sad.
Or natural. Some people take control of their end of life. I intend and hope to.
Maybe some of us live too long these days. Many outlive assistance.
Time was this would be big news. Now . . .
Good observation. The media avoids reporting suicides, out of respect for families, but I don't think that does society a favor, and the cops don't issue press releases unless it is a very public event or a notable person. The problem is way bigger than most people realize. Even listening to scanner traffic you only get the dramatic emergency cases; no one hears about the quiet death in the privacy of one's home.
No foul play suspected.
SBSO on scene with Montecito Fire Department and Medics...
