    The schizophrenics are the ones yelling obscenities at you with nary a provocation followed by a nonsensical stream of consciousness. Or those with a highly unlikely conspiracy theory laden take on reality. The former kind often make themselves known to you. The latter are waiting to be asked.

    Or people addicted to drugs.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Almost everything is underdetermined. Hence a criticism of "not necessarily" is often excessively obvious.

    It is an issue when people who need help for mental illness by the nature of their illness have a limited capacity to give consent. It does make for a complicated moral dilemma. I think it is difficult to tell if someone is mentally ill or on drugs, especially from a distance.

    I will also mention that what you described in the OP would be extremely unnerving.

    A quarter of the homeless are schizophrenic. And they are not hard to spot. Of course you'd rather pretend they don't exist. Which is the point of this thread.
