Substantial research conducted to show how Arizona can do better with their money. Now let's see if the powers-elect pay attention and actually support the voters in their quest for better spending of their money and re-direct on educational and other resources needed within our community.
Edit on comment replace deinstitutionalization of state prisons to read state hospitals...
Great read and well worth the time to educate and build awareness into the problem of criminalizing the mentally ill because of deinstitutionalization of state prisons putting the burden of treatment on jails and prisons not funded or staffed for such challenges. In time, this will have to be done as population growth require imminent action plans to handle this problem and condition within our incarcerated populations. Taxpayers should be aware of the expensive costs associated among this clientele thus should consider alternatives to incarceration to reduce costs associated with treatment AND prison costs.. the clock is ticking
