9. I wish our justice system were re-structured in such a way that people don't feel that

someone "gets off" because of mental illness. If our goal was that sentences would be protective and possibly rehabilitative instead of merely punitive and decent mental health care were provided, both in prisons and in secure mental hospitals set aside for the severely ill, I think we'd be better off.
