I am trying to consider how I might estimate the costs of the breaches of recognizance, breaches of probation and failure to attend charges that my often not lucid clients are charged with as a result of the lack of accommodation for the cognitive perceptual impairments.
My clients are often not "orientated in time and space". As a result they miss many appointments. As a result they also often go to the emergency ward when they can't figure out how to handle an issue in their lives
The Drummond report gave us a costing outline for the hospital Emergency room visits. It is possible to calculate the cost of each individuals use of healthcare services by tracking an OHIP number.

I realize I have come late to this, but after the forced shut-down of Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Oakland, I was somewhat relieved to see that Norm Stamper - the former head of the Seattle Police Department - has spoken out against the heavy-handed tactics of some police forces in dealing with the Occupy Movement.
Stamper even admitted that during the infamous "Battle of Seattle" in 1999, the use of chemical agents was a mistake, and that his actions had interfered with the legitimate democratic rights of protesters.
