Re: “Transient Held After Man Fatally Stabbed on Church Street

It isn't that there is no compassion for mental health patients, it's that there is too much and it is misguided. The gentleman who mentioned Willowbrook is correct: that sad situation became the catalyst for dismantling almost ALL of the mental health facilities across our country. We had more beds for the mentally ill in the 1850's! We have done this in the name of "human rights," but when people are a danger to themselves and others isn't it actually cruel? The mentally ill today simply end up in jails in a revolving door scenario. Less money on wars, more money in states to fund and run mental health residential facilities.

This man, DJ Jaffe, a liberal democrat works across the aisle with Republican from PA Tim Murphy to get policy changed. Pay attention and follow. This is good governance.
