Trapped - Mental Illness in American's Prisons

Our prisons are not only over-run (The prison population in the USA exceeds 2 million, higher than that officially reported by any other country, as a percentage of total population) but they are over-run by the mentally-ill, as well:
A 2006 report by the U.S. Department of Justice shows that the number of Americans with mental illnesses incarcerated in the nation’s prisons and jails is disproportionately high. Almost 555,000 people with mental illness are incarcerated while fewer than 55,000 are being treated in designated mental health hospitals.
Watch the (somewhat disturbing) brief video here.
