Where and what you do with furious alienated students? or any furious 
alienated humans?

I found these as possible significant of the "alienated" word.

I remember that an "alienist" is another way to call a Psychiatrist.
And usually "an alienate" is intended as "a mentally disturbed person".

Maybe you think I advocated to put him/her inside an asylum forever, but 
I'm not doing this.
I only advocate to do it for the limited time needed to make him/her 
calm and not dangerous for him/herself and others and, maybe, help 
him/her to not feel alienated.

What is wrong with this?
