Raw numbers fluctuate a lot more than percentages do.  I would have chosen
a number that was meant to be the percentage, so...just use the percentage
when it's what I mean.

The stockholders haven't been able to push this through yet, in most
cases.  A common argument against is "but the other guys can do it so we
have to".  Federal regulations nip that in the bud.

But why would this not be constitutional?

Unfortunately, you then have to define "mental patients" - and what about
those who only technically qualify and are far more "criminals"?  That's
why I have increased mental health treatment instead.

Thanks, but it may be less time than you think.  While I have thought about
some of these issues, I just googled for a list of what are the major
issues, came up with answers to them, and added a few more.
