WFLD-TV learned that Rikers Island in New York had routinely released mentally ill inmates from prison in the middle of the night without provisions of supervision, and began to wonder if Cook County jails practiced the same thing. By staking outside the Cook County jail after midnight, WFLD was able to identify mentally ill inmates as they were released. The reporters and produces spent two months staking outside the jail and properly identifying inmates as mentally ill.
