According to Statistics, many Black men suffer from Post Traumatic Syndrome, which lands them in prison due to violent crimes.
When committing these crimes, an emotional stage of fly or flight sets in. A series of thoughts of rage overtakes them and they become victims of an innocent turned passionate yet angry crime.
The problem lies here…when men do something of this nature they are usually diagnosed as psycho or sociopaths, and receive the needed treatment and rehab in medical facilities. Most Black men are never properly assessed, evaluated, or treated and suffer from more than life sentences where they will have to continue to fight to live, never finding peace or content with themselves or crimes committed towards others.
This gives basis to believe that many Black men criminally charged, should have records reviewed for proper assessment and diagnosis, to ensure they have been properly assessed and treated for mental illness they have no control or responsibility over.
