difficult to make a judgment against whether or not Carl Schnell was
dealt a bad hand when institutionalized for 20+ years for assault
without knowing his prior history. But the fact that he was 46 when he
went to Jackson Prison, followed by Ionia and then finally WCGH,
suggests that he was probably not such a good guy. Of course, being of
sound mind in 1935 as compared to today are worlds apart. 50% of the
population would be locked up if we went by those standards. I'm not so
sure that they are outdated.
