...... There is a very high percentage of inmates who are mentally Ill.The story of this man's sonwho got 45 years with no possibility of parole because he exhibited the signs of his illness -Asperger's Syndrome - and committed no crime, is beyond acceptable. The judge wouldn't allow testimony to be given that explained what this illness is. His life now is ruined. This happens so often. Most of the inmates in solitary confinement have a mental illness. There are so many changes needed in our criminal injustice system. Criminalization of mental illness should be a crime itself.
