  • Because we refuse to do the right thing by our insane, drug addled and criminals insisting their rights are more important than the lives of the rest of the citizenry.

  • Tragedy

    One strategy to consider to help our mental patient/citizens is to use the buildings, dormitories and campuses already in every state’s possession.

    Recall when Congress and State Legislatures went rather nuts insisting that everyone must have a college degree, (the actual level of education was not their priority, just the degree), so we now have many colleges in every state not graduating employable and prepared students, but eating up taxes by the billions. Time to face facts.

    Let each legislature consider changing the use of a few of their already built campuses to a need that every state has now, far more than near-illiterate-state-college-diploma-holding-unprepared-for-any-job-even-jobs-not-needing-a-diploma-graduates! Recall that the same numbskulls in previous Congresses and Legislatures closed and demolished the state hospital/campuses which cared for thousands of mental patients.

    Each state has several less than its best state colleges; let them use those campuses for a beneficial purpose to help thousands of citizens needing mental health care, for almost no capital cost to taxpayers since they are already built in every state.
