This afternoon I attended a Community Justice Council Mental Health Committee Meeting. It was announced that a Judge from the Miami-Dade Criminal Health Project, a model program to keep persons with mental illnesses out of jail and prison was speaking in Milwaukee next month. I came home and read a New Yorker magazine article on Madness subtitled: “In Florida prisons, mentally ill inmates have been tortured, driven to suicide, and killed by guards.” The prison in the article is the Dade Correctional Institute in Dade County Florida. There is probably some logical explanation to this contradiction of how Dade is a model and madness but I will let you figure it out. It is the Featured Article of the month.
