Default What Are We Going to Do About Tyler? Mental health system in Mississippi

What Are We Going to Do About Tyler?
"Tyler didn’t fall through any cracks. Mississippi didn’t lose track of him. A review of available records suggests that Mississippi may well have the worst record of any state for prolonged stays in jail for inmates awaiting the most basic psychiatric evaluation. A copy of the state’s wait list shows that as of August 2017, 102 defendants — accused, but not yet convicted, of various crimes — were waiting in county jails for forensic evaluations. One had waited 1,249 days, another 1,173 days, still another 879."


Mentally ill, jailed for nearly four years awaiting forensic evaluation and trial, his own father had people beat him while in custody.

Another in a long line about mishandling terribly ill people (mentally or physically ill!). What a stinking shame.
