NEW YORK (AP) — Four days before Alexander Bonds ambushed and killed a New York City police officer, he was in a hospital emergency room getting a psychiatric evaluation.There were antidepressant and anti-psychotic medications in his apartment, and his girlfriend told officers she took him to St. Barnabas for the psychiatric evaluation July 1, police said.If you're making a determination that someone's a danger to themselves or others, you better be pretty clear about it.Because you're taking away their liberties, said Grause, whose association represents hospitals and nursing homes."While psychiatrists can often identify circumstances associated with an increased likelihood of violent behavior, they cannot predict dangerousness with definitive accuracy," the American Psychiatric Association said in a 2012 position statement.Bonds, who had served prison time for a 2005 armed robbery, had railed about police and prison officers in a Facebook video last September.
