A handful of church leaders, notably the Bishop of Münster, 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.
- 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.
