    Mr. Jackson: This message is coming from the City of Pittsburgh, Pa. I just wanted to commend you on your class and tenacity. I have been watching you on HLN and various other chanels for years and enjoy your analogy of legal situations…You should have your own television show!!

  9. Joey Jackson addressed an issue on HLN that not many address. The criminal acts of people are often a product of mental illness. Incarceration is totally necessary but parole will allow the untreated criminal to repeat his/her crimes again and again. Just think what the treatment/cure of mental illness will produce: less drug use/abuse, less multiple shootings, more employment, less child abuse, the list goes on. Bring back asylums and reduce crime.
