"The second largest mental institution in the State of Texas is the Dallas County jail. Over a quarter of the inmates have diagnosable mental health issues, which if addressed in the proper way would reduce the problem of mass incarceration and criminal activity. Prison is for people we are afraid of, not for people we are mad at." Terry Bentley Hill
