Mentally Ill not treated well at Twin Towers Jail

I have heard for years Sheriff Lee Baca say that LA essentially runs the largest mental hospital in the country. With over 3,000 inmates diagnosed with a variety of mental illnesses he is absolutely correct. A few weeks ago the very talented Los Angeles Time’s writer Steve Lopez (You may remember him as the true charachter in The Soloist: Robert Downey Jr. & Jamie Fox 2009) wrote a great article titled “It’s a crime to house the mentally ill this way”

If your loved one has been detained and is in the mental facility at Twin Towers this article will shed a little light on what goes on in there.
