Prisoner Or Patient?Streaming Video - 2012
In this program, Horizon investigates how we deal with mentally ill offenders. Experience has shown that prisoners who are mentally ill are by far the most likely to be incarcerated again after they are released. Are special hospitals established specifically to treat this type of prisoner really a soft option, or are they an absolute necessity? How do we choose to deal with dangerous psychopaths who require strict discipline and specially trained personnel to manage them? And how do we treat inadequate individuals who commit only petty offenses and need medical attention without such strict discipline?
