A lack of support from Fisher

This letter is regarding the political debate Tuesday night and Dean Fisher. The topic at one point was the problem of the mentally ill, no beds and over-stressed police department transporting them clear to the northern corners of our state.

Did you slip when you said, “transporting the prisoners” or is that how you really feel about the innocent mentally ill? You also said mental illness is caused by substance abuse. Maybe you should educate yourself, or better yet visit one and see how great their lives really are.

We don’t need to be labeled criminals. We need you and the public to understand that we will never be cured and maintained if we are fortunate to have access to a psychiatrist who can medicate us to live a near “normal” life.

Thanks Dean for showing your true feelings and lack of support. You won’t be getting mine either.
