    A Care2 News Network story reports abandonment of mentally ill childen in Senegal. I wrote the following comment at the story, but got a DoS. (Censorship is usual for my comments.  I filmed the censorship, which is also usual.  See samples of real-time cybercensorship at my YouTube channel jkempp703). "Senegal sounds almost as bad as America where mentally ill people are frequently abused, neglected, 1.25 million are imprisoned for being sick, and some, like my brother Larry Neal, are murdered under secret arrest. http://WrongfulDeathOfLarryNeal.com "

Unfortunately, we do not have to travel to Senegal to see abused, neglected, abandoned mental patients.  That is often how Americans are treated when they suffer mental illness.  Another sad example of America's neglect of mental patients became evident this week when Mitrice Richardson's remains were found in Malibu Canyon in California. 

Mitrice was a 24-year-old recent college graduate who was arrested in Lost Hills, CA Jail on September 16, 2009, at 10p.m.  She was reportedly released from jail around 1:30 a.m. without any money, I.D., food, water, or cell phone in an unfamiliar area on foot, because police had her car. Mitrice was reportedly acting erratically and suffering depression before being arrested for 1) disturbing the peace in a restaurant - talking about Martians; 2) possession of a small amount of marijuana; and 3) running an $89.00 tab at the restaurant that she did not have ready funds to pay.  The young woman obviously needed help.  Instead, Mitrice went missing for almost a year after her arrest until her skeletal remains were found Monday.  See more about Mitrice at this link:   http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=17280&pst=884068

In Senegal many women refuse to take mentally disabled children on public transport; families hide children with mental or neurological disorders, and some parents disown them outright. Such is the stigma of having a child with these widely misunderstood
