I don't see what institutionalizing him would really do. He may be a little crazy but he's also a sped with an active imagination and 0 social grace so he sees nothing wrong with saying ponies are fixing the virus. It is the only way he can deal with anything serious. For now he pays most of his bills and hasn't been too dangerous. More of a nuisance really. He needs a handler especially when Barb dies. She's a handler but she also isn't helping anything by coddling him and letting him do what he wants all day as long as she gets her fast food.Holy shit. I thought that I'd prepared for any lunacy from Chris, but those tweets are something else. If anyone informed the appropriate authorities to just check his Twitter out and they didn't have him institutionalised at once, then I honestly can't see why.
Just like jail or the army, it's not going to do anything. A group home that specializes in people with autism is probably his best bet.
