Man, I wish I knew how to transfer a story to here but I'm computer illiterate.
Yesterday on Yahoo there was a story : Kept in Chains: Mental Illness Rampant in Somalia.
The story opens telling about a man who is chained to a wall in a hallway with 25 others at a clinic for the mentally ill. He mutters under his breath and spits at everyone. His clothes are torn up and hanging off him. His brother and sister were killed right in frontt of his eyes and then he was tortured. Then he roamed the streets naked, lashing out at anyone who came close.
Some of these people have been kept chained up for more than eight years. At one of the facilities, over 50% of the patients were chained. The doctors recite the Quran to patients hoping it will improve their condition.
They say every time another mortar or gunfire is heard, more people snap. They've had to watch public stonings and hands and feet cut off their family, freinds, neighbors.
One man snapped and his family had to keep him tied to a tree.
This is the Gadarenes. It is absolutely chilling.
