    Endangered? Is he on a Federal or State list somewhere?

    Desiderata - put them down? That's a bit harsh... he's mentally ill.

    I think endangered is misused here unless they are referring to the fact that he's out in the cold in his pjs without warm clothes and needs medication (according to the Fay. Observer). It's not a synonym for dangerous, though.

    Appears the man was caught breaking and entering back in 2008. Pulled a knife on deputies when they tried to arrest him and grabbed a propane tank and barricaded himself inside.

    This is from an article two years ago. Appears to be the same person. Not sure if this is the reason he was there but should be one of them.

    they've cautioned folks not to approach him 'cause the dude is deranged. common sense tells me that they mean just that. i wouldn't suggest you approaching him just to see what he'll do to folks. i'm just saying...

    I know alot of crazy people who aren't dangerous, but could cause harm to themselves if let loose in public.
