AIMI Fundraiser: "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby

Announcement: "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby has been published! Please order a copy today at CreateSpace. "Bloody Toombs," is a book that informs, entertains, and inspires readers as we travel though turbulent time periods in recent American history observing life through the eyes of Darby, a gifted writer who is a human rights advocate, antiwar activist, and bipolar man. Share the link, please
Thank you for including "Bloody Toombs" on your summer reading list!

Travel with Darby through the segregated South of the 1960's, where he grew up, largely raised by his family's African American housekeeper, Maudie Mae. Darby's strong stance against racism and the Vietnam War often put him at odds with some of his elite family members and close friends. Accompany Darby to the Ivy League schools where he was enrolled as a graduate student: Tufts and Harvard. Go with Darby to antiwar demonstrations during the hippy era, when the advent of the pill led to "make love, not war" slogans. Experience Darby's crises and suicide attempts caused by his manic depression. Darby was usually aware that he was spiraling out of control but was completely unable to stop it. Learn from a masterful writer, whose undergraduate degree is in psychology, what that was like. 

At age 70, Darby has now enjoyed over 20 years of remission from bipolar episodes, thanks to psychiatric advancements. Darby founded the Atlanta chapter of Food Not Bombs. He wrote, "From 1994 until 2012, our small and informal band of unpaid volunteers served tens of thousands of free hot meals to Atlanta's hungry and homeless on sidewalks, in city parks, and in public shelters. For the first ten years of Atlanta Food Not Bombs, we did all of the cooking out of my own kitchen, serving more than five hundred meals of soup, rice, bread, salad, and fresh fruit." 

This year, Darby traveled to Washington, D.C. for SOA Watch meetings, and he attended the 50th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday" in Selma, Alabama. He remains committed to fighting racism, avoidable wars, and homelessness, particularly among the mentally ill. 

Part of "Bloody Toombs" sales proceeds will help give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Your purchase of "Bloody Toombs" supports AIMI's first fundraiser in eight years of operation. 

"Bloody Toombs" is a book that illustrates what happens when mental illness occurs in a family of means. Darby was a very intelligent young man who won full scholarships to two of the nation's best schools. But neither Darby's intelligence nor money from Darby's father, a judge, and his uncle, a banker, or the fact that they had influential friends could save Darby from experiencing psychotic episodes that led to hospitalizations, homelessness and jail. "Bloody Toombs" also demonstrates that mental illness is highly treatable, especially with the improvements in drug therapies that helped Darby gain stability and maintain it for over two decades, enabling him to make valuable contributions to society as a writer and human rights advocate. 

Homelessness, prison, and avoidable deaths must cease being America’s response to serious mental illness. AIMI thanks you in advance for purchasing "Bloody Toombs," an important memoir and allegory that we hope is successful like other great literature that takes readers through important periods of American history while relating personal stories: "Forest Gump" and "Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years." We know you will enjoy reading "Bloody Toombs" and gain insight about social and ethical issues of universal application and concern. We hope you will write a review about this book at Amazon, where it will also be available within days.

Thank you for helping to give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill through your purchase of "Bloody Toombs," by Bob Darby.

"Bloody Sunday" 50th anniversary in Selma, Alabama, May 2015
Thank you for your order of "Bloody Toombs."

Killing Mentally Ill Georgians Is Habitual

Mentally challenged people are regularly killed in Georgia with or without a death warrant. Brandon Rhode died a horrendous, torturous death by execution -- killed by lethal injection drugs imported from behind a British bicycle shop. The young man was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. He lived a short, troubled life before being charged with murder and sentenced to death. Brandon was so afraid that he tried to commit suicide by cutting his own throat days before his execution. But Brandon failed and died a slow, brutal death on Georgia's execution table. Numerous other mentally challenged Georgians have been similarly put down like rabid dogs since Brandon, who is pictured below. See the wound on his neck from his failed suicide.

Killings of mentally ill people happen outside of prisons and jails, also. The nation was saddened this spring by the death of a U.S. Air Force veteran who went jogging naked. Because Anthony Hill, 27, was naked, it should have been obvious to DeKalb County Police Officer Robert Olsen that Hill had no weapon. It should have been possible for police officers to capture Hill without lethal force, but Olsen shot Hill and then used the universally accepted words: "I feared for my life." That explanation is especially effective killings of unarmed mental patients, it seems. It is as though eugenicists have ordered police to kill mentally ill Americans, including our veterans whose minds were affected in service to their country. See Hill, who was killed for streaking, in a photo below.
Murder of Matthew Ajibade, a bipolar computer science student, in police custody, and cover-up
The death of a 21-year-old computer science student in police custody has been ruled a homicide from blunt force trauma and has resulted in the termination of nine deputies who strapped him to a restraining chair on New Year’s Day 2015 and allegedly beat him to death. Although the county attorney’s office initially claimed that the deputies were fired last month (April 2015) for general policy violations, the coroner confirmed that the deputies lost their jobs on the same day that he signed the student’s death certificate. The student’s family only became aware of the death certificate’s existence after a photograph of the document was leaked on social media. Ajibade lived in an Atlanta suburb. His girlfriend reportedly told police that Ajibade had been diagnosed as having bipolar disorder three years ago, and that was probably why he was murdered.
I found it especially unacceptable for Georgia to execute Warren Hill. Hill allegedly killed his cellmate by bashing his head with a board of wood with nails driven through it. How did Hill get such a weapon in a controlled environment? Why did the mentally ill killer even have a cellmate? (Hill was incarcerated after doing another murder.) Hill was not the first mentally ill man in Georgia to kill his cellmate. It also happened in DeKalb County Jail a few years ago. I fear that if this trend continues to be successful, inmates the prison guards dislike will be matched with homicidal mental patients like Hill, who are equipped with deadly weapons that nobody accounts for them having.

Like all metropolitan areas in America, mentally ill citizens in the Atlanta area are being killed behind bars and on our streets, with or without due process of law. Because I write reports about these deaths, my computers and phones are attacked. I suspect this is done by DeKalb County Police, since they flatly refused to trace the IP addresses I gave police on a complaint, thinking that they would locate and charge the hackers. Instead, a DeKalb County Detective Miller told me it is NOT illegal to takeover my computers and phones, preventing incoming and outgoing calls, steal my emails, and steal documents from my computer's hard drive. This interference worsens as I complain rather than decreasing. I know of no exception to Americans' First Amendment rights if those rights are used to advocate for alternatives to homelessness, imprisonment, and deaths of mentally ill people. 

I just wrote tweets to DeKalb County's acting CEO Lee May and told him how disturbing I find my computer and phone sabotage to be. I had written to the prior CEO, also, via emails. After receiving no response, I went to the DeKalb County Government building to apply for a meeting with Ellis in person. Burrell Ellis gave the impression of ignoring me, but I don't think he did. In fact, the day after I tried to see Ellis, two police officers arrived at my home with a mental health worker to threaten me not to ever tell police superiors about police ignoring my complaints. That was a rude, outright violation against my civil rights if not a criminal violation of the public trust. I think Ellis sent them. Officials like to pretend not to know about my illegal oppression, especially those who have a duty to correct such conditions once they know about them. Ellis faces incarceration himself at this time on charges for other corruption. God fights for righteousness. 

Georgia pretends to be proud of one of its most famous native sons - Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who spent his adult life urging America to "be true to what she said on paper" and honor the human and civil rights of all its citizens. He organized pickets and marches throughout the South and in Washington, D.C. to alert the world to how African Americans were being treated sub-human. When I went downtown Atlanta in 2010 and stood on the corner of Auburn Avenue, the street where Dr. King was born, where it intersects with Peachtree Street, I warned my people that The Cochran Firm frauds had been awarded a dismissal in "Neals v. The Cochran Firm" on the supposition that the Atlanta office, where I served suit, was not a Cochran Firm office. I told passers-by about my mentally ill brother's lynching, which The Cochran Firm's deliberately prevented from going to court, although the firm was under contract to work in the Neals' interests. 

I picketed there because The Cochran Firm was again in the position to defraud a black family in a wrongful death by police case, the murder of 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston, who Atlanta police killed in a home invasion in 2006. Black police officers arrived and threatened me, telling me I'd better get my ass home before they Taser and arrest me. When I complained to officials, the city's mayor, Kasim Reed, and mostly black administrators told me they thought the police did the right thing. In Nazi Germany, elders were killed right along with the 300,000 mentally ill people of all races, in order to make an "efficient nation." I have proof that the Kathryn Johnston case was also mishandled.

One of the main reasons for my surveillance and violations against my First Amendment rights probably happen is because I exposed The Cochran Firm fraud against African Americans. The Cochran Firm defrauded my family while under contract as our wrongful death attorneys for my handicapped brother, Larry Neal. We then sued for malpractice and fraud, but The Cochran Firm committed perjury which was accepted by two Atlanta, Georgia courts - Georgia Superior Court and United States District Court (USDC). The firm claimed not to have any law offices at all in Georgia. Now The Cochran Firm is in California courts conflicting its own statements made in the Georgia courts. It claims in California that all Cochran Firm offices are one firm. I believe The Cochran Firm may be a continuation of the CoIntelPro program, whose mandate was to "keep wealth out of black hands." Central California USDC pronounced on May 12, 2015, that The Cochran Firm is NOT a law firm. That should end the covert racism against its own clients by these officers of the court. See the court order below in the article below: "Cochran Firm Fraud Fails in California Court"

I continue to advocate for mentally ill Americans, who are treated like the "least among us, His brethren." It is dangerous to threaten the prison industrial complex, which makes most of its $100billion per year by imprisoning America's mentally ill citizens. Therefore, I report anything that makes me uncomfortable but usually not in this blog, which might be read by persons who are particularly sensitive regarding this issue - mentally ill Americans and their families. I felt very uncomfortable when a U.S. Marshal came to my house and warned me about a murder suspect with an automatic weapon he claimed was living two doors away from me, and I made the report in my "FreeSpeakBlog". The marshal could not explain why he did not search the house he spoke about or why the Government felt I should receive a direct warning while none of my neighbors were warned. It seemed to be more government intimidation.

I continue to struggle for satisfactory closure regarding my personal justice quest regarding the secret arrest and wrongful death of my mentally, physically disabled brother, Larry Neal, who was murdered in Memphis Shelby County Jail in 2003 after 18 days of secret arrest. At AIMI, we continue to advocate for 1.25 million mentally ill Americans behind bars who should be in hospitals or community care under assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs. It is very difficult to do this work with inadequate equipment. I noted today that my cellphone cannot take pictures (a new phone), and my computer is being attacked more frequently. I object to these intrusions against my human and civil rights, and I am not afraid to object all the way to the United Nations. When people anywhere are being targeted for isolation and murdered en masse, as mentally ill people are in the United States, it should be addressed by the United Nations and all world citizens. See "AIMI vs. USA" online.

To increase security, I immediately share whatever happens with the public via Internet. I will continue to do that at least until the Trans-Pacific Partnership Act (TPP) deletes Americans' freedom of press online. Then we will find other ways to communicate. Slaves did, civil rights advocates did in the 1960's, and so will we find alternative methods to give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. This work will continue, no matter who objects to mentally ill Americans having human rights. As I have told CoIntelPro repeatedly, I am not their slave.

Lawless America Exposes Larry Neal's Murder

Because Bill Windsor exposes corruption like LarryNeal's secret murder, the system arrested Windsor. He speaks about Larry Neal's secret arrest and murder after 18 days in custody on a video at this url: >My brother's elimination is probably the nation's biggest domestic conspiracy. I believe that is because it shows what is intended for many other Americans, and it already started with the homeless and the mentally ill. 

Larry's police kidnapping and murder cover-up continues 12 years after his death in custody of Memphis Shelby County Jail in Tennessee. Windsor's video has no code to embed the video here. I used Screencastify to record Bill Windsor's video so that I could embed it.

Bill Windsor now has legal trouble and was falsely accused of crimes because he exposes and opposes judicial corruption and government wrongdoing. He traveled to 48 states (and planned to also go to Alaska and Hawaii), and Bill filmed hundreds of people like my family who are suffering from Legal Abuse Syndrome. This writer firmly supports the work of Bill Windsor and Lawless America and ask that you do, too. Bill Windsor told me he did not bar his video about Larry Neal from being embedded at other sites, so why is done? 

I also saved the Screencastify video at Google Docs
It is set to allow anyone with the link above to view. I plan to copy Windsor's film, using a separate digital camera, and save it EVERYWHERE ON THE INTERNET. During the last three minutes of the film, I also exposed the wrongful conviction of Rev. Edward Pinkney, an activist minister from Benton Harbor, Michigan who angered elitists by organizing a recall petition for Benton Harbor's mayor, who he and others feel worked against Benton Harbor's citizens to help corporate America acquire lakefront public lands at bottom prices. Read about Pinkney, please, at Truthout. Fascism hates and punishes truth tellers like Windsor and Pinkney.

It is important for Americans to learn from Lawless America videos. If those who took over the U.S. government ever put the #NDAA law to use, millions of Americans might be arrested and murdered like Larry was in 2003 -- secretly at first. The government has assigned itself the right to intern and/or kill Americans without trials - exactly what happened to Larry. You see, abuses of power begin with the least and travel upwards like HEAT. 

Let America keep killing homeless and mentally ill people without accountability, and it could be your time soon.

Another human rights advocate, Wendy Hempstead, reminds us about Darren Rainey as we near his wrongful death anniversary. Rainey was also a mentally ill black man who was murdered in custody, like Larry Neal was. Rainey's murder in a hot shower where he was tortured to death was initially covered up like my brother's murder, and might have remained a cover-up had it not been for Hempstead's brave brother, Harold Hempstead. Harold, who was also an inmate, notified prison authorities, who ignored the wrongful death reports, and then took the matter to the Miami Herald, one of the few newspapers that will publish information about the brutality and secret murders of mentally ill inmates, which is common in the USA. See an excerpt and url from Wendy's article below. Pictured below are Darren Rainey on the left, and Harold Hempstead on the right:

Please join us in remembering Darren Rainey June 23 2015
For the last 3 years I have been doing all I can do to help my brother's voice be heard, and I have been doing all I can do to help find Darren Rainey justice. I also now find myself fighting for justice for many, many inmates who have been abused or who are not receiving proper health care. I will continue these battles until things change within D.O.C’s Florida prisons, until justice is served for all those mistreated or killed, and until Corizon and Wexford and any outside agency hired by the D.O.C to provide health care to our inmates actually starts providing our inmates with necessary health care. The death of Darren Rainey started me on this long journey. To remember him my brother Harold Hempstead, I am asking for everybody to join us on June 23, 2015, in remembering Rainey by taking to any and all social media sites you are active with and please blog or talk about Darren Rainey. >> Read more

George Mallinckrodt wrote a book about Darren Rainey's tragic end, called "Getting Away with Murder." Please purchase a copy, because (1) it is a well-written book that describes what happens in a society that considers people with mental disabilities as being disposable, and (2) Mallinckrodt was fired from his position as a prison psychoanalyst for Corizon Health Care after complaining about the brutality of mentally ill prisoners in Dade Correctional Facility in Florida. He deserves our support. 

Government officials and many online companies as well as mainstream media companies seem determined to help police and corrections officers get away with murder -- especially the wrongful death of Larry Neal. Don't let them. In Nazi Germany, after over 300,000 mentally challenged, physically disabled, and elderly people of all races were isolated and killed, the Nazis started rounding up and exterminating Jews, blacks, dissidents (those who disagreed), and homosexuals, and killed over six million. Stand your ground now while the percentage of mentally ill inmates being killed in America might be small. Oppression spreads in upward mobility.
Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.
It would be illegal to keep a dog in a tight space 23 hours a day and gas or Taser him for barking. It would be illegal to put a dog in deadly restraint for control. That happens to mentally ill people routinely in the nation's correctional facilities. What happened to Larry Neal? Why are we still asking that question after nearly 12 years? Cover-ups regarding the wrongful deaths of mentally challenged inmates and free people in the USA are common and vile.

Mentally Ill People Deserve Dog Justice!
Mentally Ill Americans Need Dog Justice. Treat mental illness medically, not legally. Support the H.R. 2426 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act." The U.S. congressional bill provides for crisis intervention team (CIT) training for police and corrections officers, assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs (subsistence assistance plus mandated treatment) to stop recidivism, resumption of Medicaid insurance for certain facilities, and other needed changes. Support "AIMI vs. USA" to compensate mentally ill people and their families for health discrimination.

Invitations from AIMI to You

Around 300,000 of Germany's citizens with mental or physical disabilities of all races and religions were the first genocide victims. The Jewish Virtual Library reports: "The thick smoke from the incinerator was said to be visible every day over Hadamar (where, in midsummer 1941, the staff celebrated the cremation of their 10,000th patient with beer and wine served in the crematorium).

A handful of church leaders, notably the Bishop of M√ľnster, Clemens August Count von Galen, local judges, and parents of victims protested the killings.

In response to such pressures, Hitler ordered a halt to Operation T-4 on August 24, 1941. Gas chambers from some of the 'euthanasia' killing centers were dismantled and shipped to extermination camps in occupied Poland. In late 1941 and 1942, they were rebuilt and used for the 'final solution to the Jewish question.'"

America currently mass arrests its mentally dysfunctional citizens. The nation's budget for the prison industrial complex is over $100billion per year. If mentally ill people received treatment before tragedies, which is our "final solution," wealthy private jail and prison companies would experience a significant loss of human commodities used for prison profits. That is because timely treatment restores most people with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, post traumatic stress disorder, and other mental illnesses back to wholesome living. It is not only more just and humane to treat mental illness like other chronic health conditions, but treatment before crises saves money as well as lives. We hope you want to help make that happen. 

ARE YOU AMONG THE "HANDFULL" of Christians, human rights advocates, and family members who are willing to unite against the current isolation, torture, and avoidable deaths of America's mentally ill people like certain people in Nazi Germany did despite fascism? If so, you are invited to help us give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI).

Please begin by supporting a mental health bill by Rep. Tim Murphy (PA-18) and Rep. Eddie Johnson (TX) - H.R.2646, the "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2015." It has provisions to replace incarceration with treatment for mentally ill people in America and provide crisis intervention team (CIT) training for police and corrections officers.

Discussing mental illness helps to destroy the stigma connected with that common health issue. AIMI invites you to our radio show that airs on Wednesday nights at 9pmPST at NNIA1 on Blogtalkradio. Archived shows are available for you to hear anytime at the first of eight(8) links below, under "References." Participate in our live broadcasts by calling (818)572.2947, or simply listen to live broadcasts on your computer by using the url at the scheduled time. The radio broadcast is described below:

Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill, hosted by Mary “Loves Justice” Neal:
  • Advocacy to end police violence against the mentally ill, end solitary confinement, decriminalize mental illness, remove barriers to timely psychiatric treatment, increase mental hospitals, reinstate insurance coverage for hospital inpatients, relax laws blocking involuntary commitment, establish assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs that mandate continued psychiatric care and medications and provide subsistence assistance (food and housing) for mentally ill people released from correctional facilities and hospitals, eliminate incarceration without trials, improve training for police and corrections officers, and end capital punishment, especially for mentally ill Americans.
Guests include people who did or still do wrestle with mental illness in themselves or close relatives as well as people with specialized knowledge about mental illness, particularly in the criminal justice system.

Contact Mary “Loves Justice” Neal to be a special guest at (678)531-0262 (cellphone) or (571)335-1741 (Google Voice). Also email me at and >> Persistence is necessary, as our work is highly censored. 

AIMI would like to introduce you to a brilliant writer and human rights advocate who has bipolar disorder: Bob Darby, author of "Bloody Toombs - Memoir and Allegory." Darby is a lifelong human rights advocate whose work centers on peace advocacy and helping the homeless mentally ill. He is founder of "Food Not Bombs" in Atlanta. Even while growing up as a privileged, white child from the Deep South, Darby was an anti-racism advocate who had a deep empathy for the downtrodden of society - a stance that caused a rift in his relationships with close family members and friends in the small Toombs County, Georgia town where Darby grew up. The former divinity school scholar from Emory, Harvard and Tufts Universities takes readers through his coming of age in the segregated South in the mid 1960's to the present, and we see glimpses of American history through Darby's eyes during a turbulent and exciting period when America was at war inside to "maintain the status quo" as well as in Vietnam, the last military conflict that used the draft. Darby's book also illustrates the changes in treatment options for mental illness through the years and challenges peculiar to persons with that condition. Purchasing a copy of "Bloody Toombs" will give you an excellent book on a par with "Having Our Say: The Delany Sister's First 100 Years" and "Forest Gump." Your purchase will also help give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Please check at Amazon in mid-June 2015 to purchase a copy of "Bloody Toombs" or an ebook, and we hope you will give a review.

We encourage you to visit and join AIMI at Facebook, Google+ and Care2. AIMI has roughly 1,500 members and supporters and would welcome you and your friends who we hope you will invite by sharing this invitation. Large numbers of Americans demonstrating concern for improving mental health treatment would help prioritize fixing the nation's broken mental health care system. You help is sorely needed. The 1.25 million mentally ill prisoners in America comprise over half of the country's mass incarceration problem. Sixty percent of the inmates in solitary confinement are mentally challenged, and our most vulnerable citizens account for more than half of the nation's police violence victims in justified and unjustified use of force incidents. See a website among the eight references below that documents police-related deaths that appear in news reports, called "Killed by Police." Our officers need specialized training to handle lunacy arrests, and specialized training for corrections officers would help mentally ill inmates in custody. That is why AIMI advocates for CIT training.

Please support AIMI's "final solution" - treatment B4 tragedy and CIT training. Merely join AIMI by "liking" the online groups below and/or using the "follow this blog" button in the right margin to "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog to demonstrate your preference for treatment over the incarceration, prison torture, and wrongful deaths of mentally ill people. Joining AIMI shows you understand we need a system that does not await a crime before giving people with serious mental illnesses the psychiatric treatment they need and deserve. Some crimes have crime victims, but by standing together, we can improve community safety for ourselves and others.

Mentally Ill Private Prison Prey

The relevant topic that I deal with continually is the private prison industry in America. People with mental health disabilities are preserved untreated until their mental conditions lead them to break some law -- from vagrancy to murder -- to excuse their incarceration. Once they are behind bars, they can be imprisoned FOREVER, because they are too sick to obey prison rules and continually get time added. This is a game that prison investors used to incarcerate 1.25 million mentally challenged Americans, and it is continuous.

I am director of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. We plan to take the USA before International Court this year with up to 100 cases of mentally challenged people being neglected, then brutalized by police or even killed for sport behind bars, with no accountability being demanded. My mentally, physically disabled brother was kidnapped and murdered in 2003, and I became aware over time about the problems facing families in mental health crisis. Many people are tortured and murdered. Sometimes, mentally ill prisoners are made to fight each other while corrections officers bet on the winner -- a type of human dog fighting. Sick inmates are occasionally made to fight to the death. This is horrible, and we need the international community to help rescue mentally ill Americans.

Over half of this nation's prisoners are mentally ill people who were denied treatment, and over half of the police victims are, too. Freddie Gray (who police beat to death in Baltimore) was mentally challenged. So was Malissa Williams, whose car was shot 137 times in Cleveland. MOST POLICE MURDER VICTIMS ARE MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE. There is a genocide happening. We, the families of mentally ill Americans, need help, +
United Nations
.  Censorship is used to prevent our advocacy. The private prison industry is rich and extremely cruel.

I am convinced that government technology is used to prevent disclosure about individual torture and murders of mentally ill people, and that media companies have been induced to ignore certain reports. +Reason reports, "Outrage over private prisons is largely a distraction from the wider issues of the prison-industrial complex."

Are For-Profit Prisons, or Public Unions, the Biggest Lobby No One’s Talking About?
"The prison-industrial complex is big business not just for the private prison companies dabbling in it but for the governments, federal, state, and local [governments], and their employees, that use prisons as a source of revenue, jobs, and even political capital."

The Post reports: "The two largest for-profit prison companies in the United States – GEO and Corrections Corporation of America – and their associates have funneled more than $10 million to candidates since 1989 and have spent nearly $25 million on lobbying efforts. Meanwhile, these private companies have seen their revenue and market share soar. They now rake in a combined $3.3billion in annual revenue and the private federal prison population more than doubled between 2000 and 2010, according to a report by the Justice Policy Institute."

Very few media companies will explore why America's mentally challenged people comprise half of the country's estimated 2.3 million inmates rather than being treated for their chronic mental health problems like people with other medical conditions. It is wrong to use our most vulnerable citizens for prison commodities to further enrich the wealthy.

Assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs provide subsistence assistance and mandated psychiatric treatment. AOT programs reduce future incidences of homelessness, imprisonment, and hospitalizations by over 85 percent. That is exactly why AOT programs are not instituted and funded. Our decision makers, including elected and appointed officials, are themselves allowed to indulge in conflicts of interest as prison investors. They benefit directly by mass incarceration, and the mentally ill are their easy prey.

We thank the +Miami Herald for helping to shine a light on the torture and deaths that mentally ill inmates endure in Florida correctional facilities, and we urge other media companies to help expose and oppose the wrongful incarcerations, brutality, and deaths of mentally ill Americans. 

Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.
