I hate Scotland



Quote:

Holly Alexander moved from the US to Dundee to open a pizza shop with her husband in 2014.
Just over a year later the 37-year-old mother-of-three was stabbed to death in the flat she shared with known drug dealer Ronnie Kidd, who was also murdered.
The man who killed them, Krzysztof Gadecki, had been served with a deportation notice by the Home Office because he was on parole for a rape and robberies he had committed in his native Poland.
Double murderer to serve at least 26 years
During the court case, advocate depute Bill MacVicar said New York-born Ms Alexander was recovering from heroin addiction when she emigrated and she relapsed in Dundee.
Her relationship with her husband broke down.
Ms Alexander's mother, Lorraine DiPalermo, told the BBC she hated Scotland for letting her down and failing to help when she was trying desperately to get her daughter to leave...

Ms DiPalermo contrasted the attitude of the Scottish police with that of the US authorities.
She said: "If someone was in the States and their mother came to the police and said what I said, and showed them what I showed them, they would have definitely got that person out of there. Absolutely.
"If someone is asking for help, give it to them."




Do American police lock up American adults at the behest of their parents if they are addicts?

You've asked a very complicated question re such matters, as legal authority, jurisdiction, chargeable offense, and mental health laws re a commitment to an inpatient facility as opposed to a lockup. Your question also revolves around whether illegal drugs are found on the person or in their quarters/car where who has possession of them is ascertained (which does not mean that a court will view it that when adjudicated).

Under the circumstances the parent described I meant. We could section someone for 48 hours if they were thought to be suicidal but not hold them beyond that point against their will. The parent says that the police in America would have helped her more and I'm querying if that is true.


I think she is looking for someone to blame, but should be looking closer to home. Her daughter had addiction problems before she came to Scotland.
