County jails are ill equipped to care for people with mental health issues. That fact was not known to Vicki Futch, 80, when she called Florida’s Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) for help because her son, Gregory Allan Futch, 54, was “out of his mind.”
Greg went “into a different zone” about twice a month, Vicki said. She was usually able to snap him out of it by asking him for something. “If I needed him, he would rise to the occasion,” she stated.
