If you know anything about mental illness you should know that jails do not cure but produce hardened criminals. Our jails are full of mentally ill people. Why can't the Courts come up with rehabilitation sentences where medical and psychological help produce what is needed. Mental illness requires treatment as we do for other diseases like Cancer or Heart or Diabetes and the list goes on. Do you think anyone wants to be mentally ill? I hope you have no one in your family that suffers from this ailment. If you did then you would realize how far reaching the effects can be felt.Try compassion for both sides if you truly want to be a caring individual.Enough said.

After reading the comments on this article I am totally amused. I didn't believe some of the surly dirty wording was permitted. Therefore I pay little attention to those who resort to such words.It seems to me that Mr. Kunes has hurt himself more than the so-called victims. That is not to say someone losing some money or feeling betrayed in the confidence of a friend is not also effected. White collar crimes seem to be with us everywhere. We see it by those we have admired for years. Need I mention the politicians, movie stars, teachers, and even law enforcement as examples. But the truth that we don't want to talk about is we are all vulnerable in something we have done wrong in the past. However how quickly we jump on others. We see what we want to see, we hear what we want to hear and we believe in what we want to believe. The time is now to help those who need help. That includes those with mental problems. Incarceration rarely cures those who have this type illness.
