Shitbag Who Kidnapped Springfield Girl Is Clearly A Lunatic Whose Family Knew He Was Crazy But Wasn’t Forced To Get Mental Health Treatment


Here’s some more things we’ve learned about Miguel Rodriguez, the 24 year old shitbag who kidnapped 11 year old Charlotte Moccia on her way home from school in Springfield yesterday:

  • He was seen on video surveillance watching her walk home from the bus the day before, which means this was premeditated and he targeted this girl in particular.
  • In court today he was held without bail and is undergoing mental health evaluation.
  • He threatened to stab her if she tried to get out of the car or scream.

And then there’s this from the family:

According to his family, Miguel Rodriguez of Springfield has had a history of schizophrenia and paranoia. The 24-year-old was arrested Wednesday, accused of forcing an 11-year-old girl into a car and abducting her on her way home from school.

“We heard about it in the news, when we heard the Amber Alert,” said Rodriguez’ father, Henry, at the family’s home on Bay Street in Springfield. “The kids came and told me and they say ‘yeah, this looks like Miguel’s car.”

Wait…..what? You saw Miguel’s car on the news and you responded by NOT calling the cops? Good work.

“We knew that sooner or later he was going to do something of this nature,” said Henry Rodriguez. “But not something this crazy.”

Miguel’s father talked about the times his son would stand outside the house and spit at cars or even try and kick them as they drove past. According to the father, Miguel’s sister has had to take out a restraining order against him due to sporadic violent attacks toward her. The police were called, according to the family, when he first started acting out three years ago. Miguel had been given medication by Baystate Medical Center, according to Henry but he didn’t take them.

“He said he’s not crazy. He said he didn’t feel nothing. He said he didn’t like the flavor of the medications … We wanted him to take them but we couldn’t make him,” Henry said.

As the father spoke of his son, both Miguel’s brother and mother listened on the stairs. The whole family was shocked by the events of the day.

“We feel really bad, you know, as parents. We have kids ourselves,” said Rodriguez. “We feel relieved that the girl was found safe and sound. We were relieved that nothing happened to that little girl and that she is back with her family. We are grateful she’s all right.

“We want to say sorry to her and her family for what they went through in those hours.”

Part of me does feel bad for them because their son is obviously a fucking lunatic. He’s also an adult so they can’t force him to medicate. I know the libertarians of the world will disagree with me on this one cuz “muh liberties,” but when someone is this insane it shouldn’t be optional for them to get psychiatric treatment. This shouldn’t be optional. If you spit on cars driving by and your sister took out a RO against you, then you’re obviously batshit crazy and need to be institutionalized for the safety of everyone else. A little girl easily could’ve been killed last night.

Schizo boy has two Facebook pages, one of which is almost entirely anime bullshit.

He likes really weird shit, including tons of Indian television crap.

And the other page is just him posting selfies.

Again, he was arrested last year in the Walmart parking lot for indecent assault and battery on a minor.

So if he had mental health shit back then, why wasn’t this brought up to the judge? Why wasn’t he forced to undergo treatment? He clearly was a threat to children, yet the system let him walk away because “criminal justice reform,” or something. And why is he even allowed to drive a car in the first place if he’s this unpredictable? Lot more to come on this story for sure.

    his schizo and paranoia is enough to get him sectioned. all his family had to do was call 911, say he’s a harm to himself and/or others, and an ambulance would’ve taken him to the ER to get assessed. even kicking at cars is enough crazy to get him sectioned! he wouldn’t be released from a psych facility until he was med-compliant, and he’d *hopefully* be normal enough to get released and continue taking his meds because he’d be thinking logically.

    that’s literally all they had to do to avoid this. that little girl is now traumatized for life!

      It was on Zero Hedge and the headline includes George Soros and Philadelphia. I tried posting with the link but it didn’t work so I’m trying without the link. It also explains how crime stats are being manipulated down by liberal policies such as do not prosecute lists. The demographics are also being manipulated.

    Serious proposal: after the first court encounter/charge for a violent crime, people like this should be required to check in as needed to his HC provider for mandatory injectable antipsychotics. (Long acting injectables are available now.) If the guy misses his injection, a warrant is issued for his arrest. This is the only sensible alternative to the old days institutionalization.

    But, "feelings" !
    January 17, 2020 at 6:01 am

    Another prime example of what liberal ism/ progressivism has brought us.
    They shuttered all of the State Hospitals ( Danvers, Northampton, Taunton) because of…. feelings. Yes, some monsterous things happened in these institutions. But, instead of fixing the problems, the liberal answer was to close them all, make the patients “pinky-swear” they’d take their medications, and release them to roam the world….with no real plan for compliance if they decide that they don’t need no steenking medication!
    What’s more humane?
    Having them safely housed with 3 hots n a cot?
    Or living homeless under a bridge?
    Much of the homeless problem can be attributed to this.
    The libs scream and tell about the inhumane nature of homelessness, yet their policies created more of just that!
    You see, everything liberals touch they screw up. To liberals it’s all about “feelings”. Nothing rooted in liberal thought is based upon practicality or reality.
    And the biggest mover and shaker of liberal thoughts and ideals is : the Democrat Party.
    Wanna end the fuckery?
    Stop electing and reelecting Democrats!

    • Mister Rogers
      January 17, 2020 at 9:20 am

      The Democrats won’t call for shuttering of nursing homes where the elderly are being treated worse than the loonies in the state hospitals. Again, the rights of the insane matter more than the rights of the citizenry. Why you ask? Democrats and the insane are indistinguishable.

    • Holla
      January 17, 2020 at 9:51 am

      I hate to break it you, but the closing of state mental hospitals had more to do with saving money then any “liberal agenda”. You think the republicans want to pay to keep those things open? In your dreams.

      • Fake Rant Queen
        January 17, 2020 at 1:33 pm

        Obviously you’ve never heard of the “deinstitutionalization movement” and the “radical psychiatry” movement.

        Maybe you weren’t even born yet when the Dems in this state started to push for closing down the state mental hospitals on “compassionate” grounds but also to “save money”. Refusing to fund inpatient mental health services was just an excuse, something the lefties could wave in front of the faces of fiscal conservatives.

        It was inspired by the 1960s radical psychiatrists who pushed the idea that the severely mentally ill are really sweet, harmless people who merely have a different point of view than you or me.

        And in case you haven’t been paying attention, Suffolk County DA “Rachet Rachael” Rollins justifies her list of 52 crimes she won’t prosecute by promising it will “save taxpayers’ money”. She comes from a family of petty criminals, so I guess she should know. /s

        • Holla
          January 17, 2020 at 3:00 pm

          I know all about the movement. To me it’s still a front to saving money, it was then and it is now. It crosses party lines. Nobody wants to fund anything related to mental health, especially an incredibly expensive inpatient setting. Is it right? No. But I won’t believe for a second it’s an all liberal agenda. This is across the board. The state hospitals will never come like that because nobody wants to pay for it.

    Ever notice the more severe the crazy in a person the more that person thinks they are normal and do not need to be medicated and its everyone else that has an issue because they cant warp their minds enough to think like a lunatic.. Where as regular everyday folks are now walking around thinking they must be crazy because all the crazys are screaming so loud that they are infact not crazy and the normals need to change their stable viewpoints for the crazys viewpoints…. This world is seriously getting over run by these walking dead mental patients.

    Most of this insanity on innocent victims goes back to the 1963 Mental Retardation and Community Mental Health Act of 1963. Mental health centers were supposed to be built to provide community-based care instead of institutionalization. The states jumped all over this and gradually closed their institutions. Only half the centers were built, none were fully funded by the Feds and no money was provided for long-term operation. Then Medicaid got in on the act and mental health block grants were given to states. This is what happens when the federal government gets involved in our daily lives. No one is being served.

    Mental illness is the most underrated problem in the world today. What ever happened to all the mental institutions we had in this country just a few decades ago? We need to vote for some politicians that are willing to come up with some legislation that would force the mentally ill to receive their medication intravenously. And if the mental case doesn’t show up to the doctors office to receive their shot once a month, (or however often it’s required) then a warrant would be immediately issued and they would be forced to receive their shot of meds in jail. Every single day I see the mentally ill walking the streets. And they fucking scare me. We, the mentally competent should be on the horn to our elected representatives and hounding them online to do something. How many people have to be hurt or killed before we do something about mental illness?

    It’s getting increasingly difficult to distinguish the medically schizo from the supposedly normal.

    You say that “when someone is this insane it shouldn’t be optional for them to get psychiatric treatment.” All the so-called progressives should like that idea. With such a policy, they’d be forcing mandatory psych treatment on everyone who disagrees with them.

    Schizophrenia doesn’t cause pedophilia. He’s a despicable pos who should never again see the light of day. Unfortunately in this state he’ll be able to leverage his mental illness while arguing for a lenient sentence and or early release. You can already see the media and commenters focusing on that aspect of his general derangement. Even if he wasn’t schizo he’d still be a dangerous pedophile.

    I have had to deal with four Schizos in my llife, none of whom were blood relatives, Thank God. The first one was 9 years old when I first met her (I was 9 as well). For some reason some adult decided that I could “cure” her. Way back then, of course, no one knew how to cure schizophrenia, and of course I couldn’t “cure” her, so every time I had to play with her was pretty frightening. One time she wanted both of us to jump in front of an oncoming train! It’s pretty sad, and dangerous, when a 9 year old is expected to cure another 9 year old of such a problem. As it turned out, her older brother was also schizophrenic, and one of her sisters has a schizo son. The point here is that Schizophrenia is mostly genetic. Personallly, I think there’s no cure or effective medcation for schizophrenia. The Schizos I have known could not tolerate the side effects of their meds, and frequently told their doctors that they were taking their meds when in fact they were not.

    So, what’s the point here? It’s that people like obstetricians and health care providers should ask patients if there is any schizophrenia in the family, and if there is those patients should get genetic counseling, And in this case the entire family should get counseling, because this can happen at any age. Now, I know what there is no cure for this, but I for one would not want to have schizophrenia in my genetic family.
