Are you mentally ill & thinks society hates you? Just use the registry, attack an RSO and be a "hero."

Personally, I think anyone who attacks us just because we are on some government hit list is mentally ill. I'm willig to bet the polesmokers over at NPFP will actively recruit this chump. He'd fit right in with the rest of their mentally ill crew.

Mentally ill man arrested after hunting down sex offender with hammer, deputies say
Mar. 8, 2016

CLERMONT — A convicted sex offender fended off an attack from a man wielding a hammer and "acting really nervous and sweating" who rang his doorbell Monday night, reports show.

Bruce Babchyck, 54, opened the door of his Jardim De Largo Street home at around 9:30 p.m. to a man who allegedly lunged at him at him with the hammer, deputies said.

Babchyck, a retired Navy officer who was found guilty in 2014 of downloading child porn on a government computer, fought back and pushed back the man enough to close the door. He told authorities he then heard several loud bangs on his door and several more in the driveway where his car was parked.

When deputies found the suspect, Ian Saum, 26, he told them he looked up sex offenders in the area and tracked down Babchyck's residence, records show. He told authorities he thought the attack would "vindicate him of his wrong doings," an arrest report said.

Deputies found several large dents in Babchyck's front door, which appeared to have been caused by a hammer, officials said. They also found three deep scratches to the driver's side window of his vehicle.

Saum was jailed and is facing charges including burglary and criminal mischief.

He has been arrested in Orange and Lake counties for charges including disturbing the peace, resisting officers, larceny and battery.

He was shot by Lake County deputies Jan. 23, 2014, after taking a carving knife into the street and cutting himself with a "zombie" look. Officials said they were forced to shoot after Saum moved toward deputies and refused to drop the weapon.

"He's mentally ill and should be in a hospital," said his mother, Jackie Taylor, as she broke into tears. "This is what can happen because he's not mentally stable and shouldn't be living out in society. I just want him to get the help he needs. I don't want him to hurt anyone."

Taylor said Saum has been admitted to several facilities including a state hospital to treat his schizophrenia. He was released from a state mental-health facility last month after being involuntarily committed under the state's Baker Act.

She said her son constantly hallucinates and feels paranoid, which was part of the reason behind him attacking Babchyck. Taylor said Saum had been saying he feels society hates him.

"I've tried everything and don't know what to do," Taylor said.

Saum called his brother after the attack and told him what happened. His mother reported the crime to deputies.

"How sad is it that I feel he's safer in jail? What kind of mother wants to say that?" Taylor questioned. "He's the most loving, giving person. I just want him to get better."

"Saum was jailed and is facing charges including burglary and criminal mischief."

No forced entry or assault charge? No attempted murder charge? I guess the cops think no serious charges are justified since the victim is after all a registered sex offender.
