The wording of this question is asinine. It's asking for speculation, not opinions, and it's designed to manipulate people into asking the wrong question. The question is 'should mentally ill people be treated like criminals and put into federal prisons alongside inmates' and the answer is no. I don't know if putting more money into screenings WILL solve that problem, but that isn't the point. The point is that people who are consciously and deliberately violent towards others will target and abuse anyone who they feel they can exercise power over, and treating mentally ill people like prisoners is setting them up for incredible suffering at the hands of people who are deemed too dangerous to interact with mentally stable people. They are two very opposite groups, and mixing them is barbaric and unjust, so hopefully putting money into these screening will help.
