Mentally Ill Inmate Population keeps Growing in the Sodomy State of California

Gee I wonder why with all the Drugs, Sexual Perversion and Disease the illegals bring in!

By the grace of God several more of the Mentally Ill Politicians will increase the inmate population with the following:

Mad Maxine Waters, Nasty Nancy Pelosi, Krazy Kamala Harris, Dirty Dianne Feinstein, Jerk Jerry Brown and other mentally Ill Democrats!

And state money isn’t enough to meet needs, lawmaker says!  That is because of all the Illegal’s they support and the money they steal!

LA TimesGov. Jerry Brown has earmarked $117 million in his new state budget to expand the number of treatment beds and mental health programs for more than 800 mentally ill inmates found incompetent to stand trial.

State officials said they have struggled to keep up with the needs of a population that has jumped in size by 33% over the last three years, as judges are increasingly referring defendants to treatment. But one state lawmaker says additional funds are not enough.

Legislators, he said, need to update the laws used by judges to evaluate the mental health of people charged with crimes. And he has proposed his own legislation to keep mentally ill offenders out of the criminal justice system.

“It seems to me that the courts, the behavioral health people, law enforcement, social work — everybody should get together and try to solve that problem,” Sen. Jim Beall (D-San Jose) said at a recent budget committee hearing. “Because it’s like a bottomless pit if we don’t reform.”

Under California law, a judge can find a person charged with a crime incompetent to stand trial if they have a mental disorder or developmental disability that prevents them from understanding court proceedings or helping their lawyer with their defense. Depending on the severity of the alleged crime, defendants are supposed to be moved to a state hospital, a community mental health facility or a special jail unit to receive treatment for 180 days before undergoing another court evaluation.

Felony defendants can repeat that legal process for up to three years, misdemeanor inmates up to one. Inmates who do not improve can be placed under the care of a guardian or organization and some are confined in mental health facilities, but most are released back on the streets without resources to address their chronic conditions.

Beall argues the legal process fails to reflect advances in psychiatric and medical treatment. Defendants are committed to treatment for up to three years, when it can take only months or even weeks to determine whether medication will diminish the symptoms of mental illness and allow defendants to stand trial, according to Laura Arnold of the California Public Defenders Assn.

“The competency system is broken,” Arnold said. “The main reason, I believe, is that the three-year maximum term of commitment hasn’t been revisited since 1974.”

As of December, 840 inmates in county jails were awaiting space in state hospitals or other treatment facilities. Most had a major psychotic or mood disorder and multiple arrests, according to state data. Nearly half had been homeless and did not have access to California’s healthcare system for the poor, Medi-Cal, in the six months before their arrest. Read more here.

God is bringing judgement on California with all the natural disasters that are happening.

Hellywood is driving most of the mental illness. When you kick out the Spirit of God and embrace Satanism, Witchcraft and the LGBT ways, demon spirits move in and possess the people!
