'HEATHER MACDONALD: Inside the Jail Inferno. Excerpt: “The spread of quality-of-life policing, which targets low-level offenses like aggressive panhandling, public urination, and littering, has brought a more mentally unstable, troubled population into jails—one that mental hospitals would have treated before the deinstitutionalization movement of the 1960s and ’70s shuttered most state mental hospitals. In fact, jails have become society’s primary mental institutions, though few have the funding or expertise to carry out that role properly.'
I'm sure you've seen 'One flew over the Cuckoos nest'- pretty much everybody in the world must have seen it by now. And the point of the movie, which they clonk you over the head with over and over and over again, is that mental asylums are evil places where wonderful, quirky, sweet, harmless weirdos are sent to be zombified and murdered. Asylums are run by little hitlers and sadistic bitches. The staff- indeed the whole institution- represent 'The Man' who just wants to sweep all the slightly aberrant people off the streets into a prison for the mind and body.
So America and Britain and lots of other countries close their Mental Asylums, and guess what? The REAL prisons fill up with the mentally ill. Hmmmmm. Good result!
Normal prisoners, prison warders, the mentally ill and relatives of the mentally ill are all losers. The winners are the libtards who can now sleep the sleep of the self-righteous, knowing they have destroyed the evil Mental Asylum system. Yay for Liberals! Yay for the bright future!
'The number of people killed by those with a mental illness increased between 1997 and 2005, official figures show. The National Confidential Inquiry reported while 54 people were killed in England and Wales in 1997, this had risen to over 70 in both 2004 and 2005.'
Quirky, sweet, harmless weirdos!
