One of the chief problems related to these mass murders is mental health. Something we have and always have had, and always will have amongst us is individuals with mental health disabilities. And a good and decent society will provide the necessary resources to take care of them. But that’s where Reagan comes in. Growing up in California I remember his attack on the mental health institutions and his defunding. Conservatives never want to fund things like that, but tell them the military needs more money and they’ll bend over backwards to help. Ha, and they claim to be the pro life party.
Reagan continued his policy with regards to mental health as president and it’s the cause of the explosion in homelessness that causes even more problems.
