ago there were all inds of places for the mentally ill Tonsthere were all inds of places for the mentally ill Tons hospitals all rated with various degrees of lockup severity like prisons Some were like expensive vacation spas others were grim horrors where involuntary patients were chained and tormented much as criminals were in 19th century prisons Medical care began to become humane in the 1960 s newspapers printed exposes of what was occurring in the worst hospitals for the mentally ill and free or low cost public clinics opened up everywhere Then Ronald Reagan won the Presidential race in America He closed it all down all the public clinics and hospitals that had a mental health department the good with the bad The promise he made was that his administration would support private enterprise in opening up new and better clinics and hospitals for the mentally ill Didn t happen Most of these folks who were released are sleeping under freeways and in alleys pissing on the back doors of businesses In my large state there are only two major state hospitals left with the available beds cut back to half of what they used to have and the attendant nurses cut back even even though the number of criminally violent mentally ill has grown along with the ordinary garden variety mental patients On the other hand our building of prisons has exploded It s estimated that 60 80% of the prison population has serious mental illness I think I read that the United States has the largest prison population in the world Now the soldiers from the two Ira wars and the Afghan War who have mental illness from their service are being given the shaft in getting mental health treatment How much will you bet me that many of them will end living in the streets and prisons soon if they aren t illing themselves in suicide Yet psychiatric drugs and types of treatment has never been enlightened Why do we allow this Is preventive mental treatment expensive than building thousands of prisons and housing people for decades after their mental problems untreated are allowed to explode The answer is no But math has never been a strong point for the average taxpaying citizen. E as predictions of yet slayings Delaware and Sturgis are drawn into a web of family secrets vengeance and manipulation both inside the asylum and on the streets of LA where death drugs and sex are marketed as commodities The climactic discovery they make as they race to prevent illings gives fresh and terrifying meaning to the concept of monstrosity. .
