Famous Caseload

For the first time - I think it's the first time - my entire caseload has been on the front page of the paper at some point in their lives. It's usually about half my group, but this week has been special.

Half of them have been to jail. The other half will be going. Every single one of them is in that borderland between illness and criminality. None of them is a clear case one way or the other.

I've had to deal with one of those nuts, who is borderline criminal and crazy. The mental health facility here is a revolving door that has never been able to control him. He needs to go to jail, where he can't check himself out. When in doubt, sent 'em to the pokey.
