    This is tragic, but it's just another example of something that has been in the making over 50 years starting with JFK's last legislation, signed 51 years ago this coming Friday, The Community Mental Health Act, which effectively began emptying the nation's state mental hospitals of their patients who would then receive treatment under Federal supervision in group homes. It was further enhanced by Florida's Baker Act of 1971 which set the precedent that one can't be confined agains their will. A recent book, "American Psychosis", made the point that law enforcement and the jails have pretty much taken the place of mental institutions and asylums where mentally disturbed people can at least have, well, asylum, from the outside world. Law enforcement's attitude is that they signed up for, again, law enforcement, not as experts in the field of mental illness. It's always the most outrageous instances that get the attention, as they should, but there are also many instances of the harm untreated mental illness can produce:
