Mentally ill prisoners getting NO treatment!

MUSKEGON CHRONICLE, APRIL 8, 2010:

A state-commissioned University of Michigan study says about 65% of prisoners with severe mental illness get no treatment behind bars. The Michigan Corrections Department hired the university to conduct the study, mandated by a 2007 law. Professor Brant Fries and his collaborators interviewed 618 inmates between May 1, 2008 and September 30, 2009, and reviewed prison records. Michigan had about 48,000 prisoners then, and about 9,700 had severe psychiatric illnesses.

OK, Michigan voters, what are you going to do about it?

HFP will continue to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. But we need your muscle!

This sounds horrible. These people probably have a strong ignanceto, and yet, despite their condition, they recieve nothing! It seems like an outrage that we cram our prisons full of non-violent felons, only to corrupt their values and transform them into the animals that we never intended them to be.
