Ralph Tortorici & Frontline's A Crime Of Insanity.
As I said yesterday, Ralph Tortorici’s mental illness, imprisonment and suicide are of such significance that he has been included in a book released by Oxford University Press just two months ago. Just as important is the amount of time that PBS devoted to Ralph’s case in a Frontline show that aired in 2002, titled A Crime Of Insanity.
If you have the time and an interest in how the criminal justice system deals with mentally ill people, its worth reading the information provided by Frontline. If you don’t have the time, I will be commenting on some of the information over the next several days in a briefer fashion.
