After watching Mad In America I was left in a question filled grey area that I needed to dig myself out of. Though laid out and broken down well, I do not think the step program is appropriate for the situation. For characters like Nick York I think this system is more appropriate but still does not warrant outside interaction until your sentence is complete. This is still criminal justice system, forget the second role of a mental hospital. In jail, especially for violent crimes like assault, inmates can’t leave through the front door walk down the street buy some reheated gas station food as if nothing ever happened. A mental disorder is a very debilitating situation for their self and their family, that being said, there is still no excuse for the amount of freedom murderers received. Even though acts were done in a delirious state that does not make the individual less of a harm to society.
