BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME!
Can anybody please explain to me why there have been virtually no mental health facilities or hospitals opened in New Orleans since Katrina hit? I repeatedly hear about the need , so why can't this social services need be met?
Today , in the New York Times , "Officer’s Slaying Leaves New Orleans Asking Why" is an article about a young New Orleans police officer gunned down by a mentally disturbed person who had been hospitalized but released for unknown reasons!.
If this person had been in a mental hospital , where he belonged - this police officer , a young woman, would still be alive.
