Texas woman says mental health system failed her attacker

A little more than a week ago, Brandi Todd was watching her two children play in a park when a mentally ill man walked up behind her bench and plunged a knife into her back, severing 90 percent of her spinal cord. Todd said her attacker must be held accountable for his actions, but that the attack also illustrates a failure of the mental health system.
