They are then dumped in the hospital as government mandated, but still there are no adeguately trained people to deal with the man. The entire system is rotten and broken and exists to feed the Police and their union.

I totally agree with your statement and it makes me wonder too with the so called inmate suicide that we hear of. I wonder how many of them are mistreatment of forced trauma that ensues death? but the coroner writes them off as suicide so as the families don't sue the state or prison system? especially when they know that most of these people live from week to week with no means of financial support to pay for an attorney, investigation and for an independent coroner?
