These mad people needs treatment not to be beaten up.Fucked up governor.Jacky┬┤slow peace out men.You are in our mind, (the people of kumba all over the world)

The government instead of catering for these mad lots they are jeopardising their rights.They are supposed to be protected and given warm treatment rather than maltreating them.Mad people have to association nor laws guiding them than the government laws so they have their own rights.They are mad but are wise enough to do things.

Fellow Netters,
I thought this story needed to be re-visited for the reason below. In civilised societies, people do not talk or refer to others with mental health problems as mad people any more. The word "mad" in this context is highly pejorative! The accepted form of reference is-" a person with a learning disability or difficulty."
By addressing them as such, we see them as people first and their malady next. These are persons who need our care, not animals to be caged!
It is said, give a dog a bad name and hang it! This is what is happening here. We call them mad, deprive them of their rights and set about abusing them. I am not just talking about the police invovled here. Look at the caption of this article. Our journalist does not know any better!
My fellow brothers and sisters, we need to change our attitudes on how we treat the less fortunate in our society.
A happy Easter to you all.
