Thirty years ago, Arkansas turned thousands of mentally ill people out of state hospitals. Today, communities and caretakers face each other in a standoff on how to handle a difficult group while the state stands in the wings, paralyzed by a lack of policy and agencies in conflict. This Democrat Gazette series examines what has happened since private caretakers took over and the effect on taxpayers. (Dec. 10 - 12, 1995)
