The Houston Press reports that "as many as 17 percent of those (140,000) inmates are either mentally ill or mentally retarded, yet the Texas Department of Criminal Justice has fewer than 4,600 beds designated for the mentally impaired... the number of state-funded nonprison beds for the mentally challenged has dropped from 8,000 to fewer than 5,500. In essence, the state of Texas is warehousing its mental patients in its prison system..."
