Selena Gomez' Alleged Stalker

Placed On 5150 Psychiatric Hold

11/17/2011 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Thomas Brodnicki -- Selena Gomez' alleged stalker who was freed from jail last night -- is no longer a free man, because we've learned he's just been placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold in what has become a desperate attempt to keep him away from the singer.

We just shot video of Brodnicki being taken away in handcuffs ... law enforcement sources tell us he's being taken to a hospital for mental evaluation.

As we first reported ... cops believe Brodnicki poses a real danger to Selena Gomez.  Detectives say Brodnicki told them he's had discussions with God about killing Gomez.  Brodnicki denies making that statement.

Brodnicki ominously told us ... the only thing he wants to touch is Selena.

As we reported ... law enforcement sources tell us they want to place Brodnicki in a conservatorship, and then ship him back to mental health officials in Illinois where he resides -- far away from Selena.

a.If you are still considered dangerous to yourself, you may be recertified for another 14-day hold.
b.If you are still considered dangerous to others, the court may put a 180-day post-certification hold on you. This hold is renewable.
c.If you are still considered “gravely disabled,” you may either:
• Be placed on a 30-day hold for additional intensive treatment, or
• Be placed under Temporary Conservatorship and then a full one-yearConservatorship, which is renewable. In this event, a conservatorwill make your major life decisions, including where you live andhow your money is spent.

This is soooooooooo illegal!!! They can't get a judge to throw him in jail. So, they abuse the system by sending him to the straitjacket shrinks. Just because somebody threatens another doesn't mean they will do it. I suppose the d-bag LAPD squad will arrest if you put one of their precious celebs on your death pool. The girl already has a restraining order on him. Waste of taxpayer money to be kissing these celebs' butts like they do!

Ah, here is the LAPD pandering to the 1%. A guy can beat the crap out of his significant other and the cops will not even issue her an emergency protective order, which they can do on the spot, but they don't. But, a celebrity being threatened? Oh, let's drop everything and commit resources to lock them up!

They don't have funds to process rape kits, but 5150 holds, no problem! The can't give emergency protective orders, but tying up officers on vehicle impounds, of course!

Am I the only one who is disturbed that we still lead mental patients around in handcuffs, while this man certainly could be dangerous I don't think we can ever condone this kind of treatment of the mentally ill.

Mental health reform is a issue that concerns us all. Just look at the conservatorship abuses with Britney Spears, before people are so quick to say "throw away the key" maybe you should think about how you would want a friend or family member with mental illness to be treated. Even YOU could be a victim of conservatorship abuse.
