  •  I am by no means an expert on the nuances (0+ / 0-)

    of these legal tar pits.  However,  I do recall similar discussions on other forums and I my impression is that if you are involuntarily committed, at least for more than 24 hour observation, or something similar that you are invalidated.  I think that the overall objective is to balance the rights of the individual against the safety of the public and require a sufficient due process standard, as should any loss of rights.  I am sure that there are ways to handle things, like temporary restrictions that have to be evaluated in a certain time period.  

    This is certainly an area that would need to be looked at and will require analysis and discussion.  No system will be perfect, though.
