    Angry Nevada buses hundreds of mentally ill patients out-of-town

    Nevada buses hundreds of mentally ill patients to cities around country - Investigations - The Sacramento Bee

    Over the past five years, Nevada's primary state psychiatric hospital has put hundreds of mentally ill patients on Greyhound buses and sent them to cities and towns across America.
    With all the gun-control brouh-ha-ha going on nobody's addressed the real problem, crime-control and the mentally ill...... and then this comes to light

    Well, I suppose that's one way of dealing with the problem. I notice that California got more than 1/3 of them. That explains a lot.

    IMO, the big (read: huge) problem with "mentally ill" people is them being overly diagnosed. There's so many labels that are slapped on so many people in the name of medicinal kick backs.

    They loaded them on a bus and shipped them out? Did they ever arrive at the proper destination? The Nazis did something similar but they never arrived at the facility they were supposed to go to...

    As long as you weren't bussed in from Nevada, you're good.

    I acknowledge that's a problem, but it's not the big problem. Schizophrenia hits about 1% of people over 18, and it's a family-traumatizing disease (to say the least). There're more schizophrenics than there are people with Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig's disease combined. Meanwhile, Big Pharma does nearly no R&D on this disease (while funding research in other neurodegenerative diseases), and the gov't spending is less that $2 per citizen per year.

    The big problem is that people act as if there's not a problem, really. IMO.
