Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill follows three young men in Georgia who suffered from severe lead poisoning as children. Their mother, Ms. Goolsby, reports that her sons may have eaten lead paint in her mother's home. While the boys were little, the government was helpful regarding their mental illness, which resulted from their lead poisoning. Ms. Goolsby received social security benefits for their disabilities, and they attended special classes. As soon as they reached their teens, Ms. Goolsby's sons were each arrested for alleged inappropriate conduct. They have been jailed numerous times since, and two are currently imprisoned.
Lead poisoning in the USA is likely deliberate in order to promote increased mental disabilities among the populace, thereby guaranteeing the posterity of the prison industrial complex. Be mindful that officials who own prison stocks are not criminally charged for their conflicts of interest, and the same officials make decisions about water services, etc. It is up to the People to demand that prison investors DIVEST OR RESIGN. Mother Jones offers an article that shows the correlation between lead and crime. Please see "America's Real Criminal Element: Lead" —By Kevin Drum. Excerpt:
"New research finds lead is the hidden villain behind violent crime, lower IQs, and even the ADHD epidemic. And fixing the problem is a lot cheaper than doing nothing." See, also "Divest or Resign" at http://DivestorResign.blogspot.com

(1) Support the H.R. 2646 "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.
