Insane Swedish Twins Take On The M6

My last post mentions running out into traffic in the throes of mental illness as an economic metaphor, so I later Googled for visuals. Turned up more than I bargained for.

The incident in the video above defies description; it is real, but bizarre, disorienting, beyond rational analysis. For reasons of their own, Swedish twin sisters run onto the M6 in England and get hit by vehicles. One gets run over by a heavy truck and survives. The other gets hit by a second car, a first one having hit her to no effect some minutes before. The second vehicle does manage to briefly knock her out, but she stands up without any sign of injury, sheds a policewoman trying to restrain her, and runs into traffic again. It takes six people to eventually subdue her enough to strap her down and shove her into an ambulance. The very brief BBC news story says that both women recovered. Recovered?? One of them was run over by a truck and helicoptered out. The other bashed in a car's windshield, folded in the crease of its roofline, and stressed the metal enough to split it. Police directly on the scene thought they were both fatalities, but all it seemed to do to the sisters was piss them off more, and they were already suicidal.

A Swedish newspaper says the twins were charged with murder for fatally stabbing a 54-year old English male in the heart back in May, and one of them had previously jumped off a bridge over highway A50, breaking her ankles and skull. The only thing I could find about this in the British press was a reference to Sabine Eriksson being held in jail the next day for assaulting an officer. What exactly must one do to get some help for mental illness?

Yes, it's hideously disturbing but to answer your question, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/2204983.stm for the well-known mechanism whereby a person can be "sectioned" (detained under Section 4 of the Mental Health Act).

I witnessed someone arrested for this purpose. I knew him well as a very gentle person, a lodger at my house. Something turned him into something like a werewolf, or rather the kind of thing that created the myth of the werewolf. It took four hefty police officers to subdue him and take him away. (I won't go into the reasons why they had to do this.)

MarcLord said...

hi vincent,

thanks for the link. When living in London, I didn't at first understand the expression, (he or she) "should be sectioned."

I've had a lodger turn into something like a raccoon, but never a werewolf, which I should think would be quite frightening. Hopefully he recovered, and it would be very interesting to read about (hint, hint).

Vincent said...

No unfortunately he never recovered: committed suicide whilst in a mental hospital, after much deterioration. This all happened about 25 years ago.

What seemed to set him off was sex. He'd led a sheltered reticent life in Scotland and came down to London where he stayed in my house. He met an Italian woman of my acquaintance (thereby hangs a different tale) and they went to live together in a "bedsit". She became his sex-slave, as I understand it: egging him on at first, teasing him out of his shyness. Then it seemed to have turned him. He kept her captive, and she got scared.

The arrest happened one evening at a nearby house. A group of us used to meet to share spiritual experiences, in accordance with the practices of our meditation group. The poor man couldn't sit still. He started to grope various people there (male or female, it didn't seem to matter): feeling them between the legs, as if possessed by a devil.

The police were called and he did the same to them - hand groping their groin - and had superhuman strength to resist being overpowered, so some of us had to assist by sitting on top of him, using bodyweight to defeat his muscular mania. He was sectioned and carted off. I never saw him again, but he wrote a few pathetic letters from a hospital in Yorkshire, when he wasn't too heavily drugged. They couldn't seem to begin to unravel what had happened to his brain. It was as if he was the same sweet Dougie, but possessed by an evil spirit as described more than once in the New Testament.

MarcLord said...

How terrible for him and all of you.

Often I am afraid for the fragility of sanity, for my own and others, like walking on a balance beam. All it takes is one bad shove; I've never fallen off and never want to, but if you haven't guessed by now I've intimate, involuntary experience with those who have. It was difficult in the extreme, to the extent I'm not at liberty to reciprocate details. But thanks for telling that much.

Another important thing you should be aware of is the fact that static electricity is one of the biggest killers of computer components. [url=http://fornikeaustralia01.webs.com]Nike Shoes Australia[/url] Make sure you haven been dragging your rubber-soled shoes around on your synthetic carpet while rubbing balloons on your head and vigorously patting [url=http://fornikeaustralia01.webs.com]Nike Australia[/url] your cat at the same time (if you can do that then you should consider filming it and putting it on YouTube).
Another concern for our feathery friends in winter is sunlight. Parrots need sunlight just as we do and can suffer depression like symptoms if left with too many dark hours in a day. It is important that your bird has some natural light each day. There are products on the market that will provide your bird the light he needs. These lights are similar to the lights used for reptiles and can be found online at many pet specialty retailers. If you are going to use one of these lights, make sure you use a timer. Setting a timer will ensure that your bird receives the light with consistent hours like a normal sunrise and set. Just as leaving your bird in the [url=http://cheapnikenz-store.webs.com]Nike NZ[/url] dark all day is unhealthy, leaving your bird with out a period of dark for sleeping is also not a good choice.

That forces the foot unnaturally into the narrow part of the shoe and applies pressure to the top and the ball of the foot. Samanta Shoes are made from a hybrid mold designed to accommodate a flat foot and a high instep. "It allows for more comfort and support." The shoes are made with extra padding, and the company also has a firm rule on heel height. "We don't go beyond three inches," says Kelvin. "Anything over three inches has been proven to cause discomfort and the possibility of back pain."
Take Target and Walmart for example: they both sell similar products for the most part, a problem many retailers and most distributors have but refuse to face. Target markets itself as the leader in low priced, designer-styled [url=http://cheapnikenz-store.webs.com]Nike Shoes NZ[/url] merchandise, a distinct marketing position compared to Walmart that markets itself as the low priced leader and the heck with design. Each company delivers a unique marketing concept, one targeting consumers interested in price alone, the other aimed at shoppers who want a little style with their bargains: two different concepts, two different brand positions, and two different marketing strategies.
