Torture Today in the USA


Yes it's True!
Inhuman Torture Happens and is sanctioned by our own Government
This is not some terrorist trying to kill thousands of innocent Americans
This is a Citizen of the USA receiving forced ETC ( Electricity Shot though his brain) against his will on a regular and continuous basis.
Mr. President Obama, is this the hope and renewed vision you promised America?
Is this what our sacred Constitution and Bill of Rights stands for?
From MindFreedom:
Ray Sandford of Minnesota has now had as many or more forced electroshocks as the fictional character portrayed in the Academy Award-nominated film _Revolutionary Road_:

Thirty-seven (37).

Ray Sandford, though, is a real human being.

Involuntary outpatient electroshock re-started for Ray Sandford, and is slated to continue indefinitely.
unless everyone acts!
My comment: If you think this is treatment; just remember ECT is a forced brain convulsion which causes irreversible brain tissue damage each and every time. The proponents say it's a reset of the brain chemistry to allow positive behavior change. There is no proof or reliable science behind this theory and complete hogwash. What we do know without any argument what so ever; is the testimony of thousands that have been damaged for the rest of their lives from such treatments/torture. MindFreedom has failed to stop this inhumane torture by themselves. It is beyond time for every blogger on the web, and those that read these words that also believe in self determination of a human being in America and basic human rights to step to the plate and make your voice heard from the White House all the way down to each Town Hall across America. If this doesn't stop soon, Ray will not only be at risk of being harmed beyond any reasonable chance of recovery or humanity; but we as a people will have so lost our way in this life journey as to be blinded to these two prescious words Freedom and Liberty. They will no longer hold any real meaning in our truest of hearts, minds, and souls. This Issue and rally call isn't just about Ray; this is about each and everyone of us and those we love.


Last week MindFreedom reported that Ray Sandford postponed one of his series of forced maintenance outpatient electroshock's because of a health problem.

Ray phoned the MindFreedom office with the sad news that his doctor approved him for another involuntary electroshock, and Ray received it yesterday morning, 5 February 2009.

It looks like thousands upon thousands of united people are needed to unite to stop involuntary electroshock for Ray, and many others. Let that include you!

Just came over from Stephany's blog. This topic is very controversial indeed. My mother had forced ECT when she was young because she has schizophrenia. Hearing her story made me cringe.

Nice to meet you and I hope to read more of you.

It is indeed horrible what a psychiatrist can do in the name of "healing".
How can this be fixed? The power psychiatrists have is enormous. In court their beliefs are taken as facts.
That is criminal, but how to change it?

Dear Mark:

To begin with you need to take those moose antlers off {laughing}.

Ok, that is a good start; but it will only keep you from being locked away in the funny farm where life is only wonderful if you can create your own world all day long.

On a more serious note:

I try to believe as more of the truth is known; and I know with much apprehension that psychiatry, entrenched other interest including many governmental entities, and Big Pharmaceutical are spending billions to make sure that truth comes out as twisted , vanilla coated, watered down, and obscure as possible in tangible and understandable results and message.

We have to be the voice, the bellowing echo that rings from each mountain top to fertile valley below. It will be through are direct and earnest action taken without being shaken from our foundation or dislodged from real principles that must bring balance and rational dialogue to the public eye, to the public speakers lips, and finally to the indifferent deaf followers ears.

It was not in all actuality too long ago that the same people that used to call us all crack pots, loon birds, and scientologist; are now finally starting to see the shell game for what it is, and how this supposed great mythological fix was nothing more or less a grand marketing ploy and scheme.

I hope the day will come again sooner than later, as it has done in the past when psychiatry, the drugging, and other undesirable treatment modalities; that finally society will wake up and measure them each on real science, and the lack of promised results that has never came to pass. Of course there will also be the lingering damage that will be seen in each sorrowful community for many generations to come as a witness to this tragedy and injustice propagated on the very least and also the very best of us in Human toll.

We each here in the Blogosphere information world, as in our normal everyday lives can take a small step toward that end. I have no illusions that it will take some time, much frustration and sleepless nights, and the untold efforts of the diligent. But just think for a moment how Furious Seasons and many others have started to shine the light into the darkness as surely the mainstream will and must start to see what really going on and follow truth in do coarse.

I also see that only a few good men and women like the examples of Senator Grassley, Philip, and so many others that have put it all on the line to demand the truth be told and action be taken forcefully if necessary.

Those solders of truth in these are dark days and somberness of dreary nights embracing toil, tirelessly taking each battle being waged one step forth at a time. Holding to the memories of maimed as shards of broken glass piercing their blood soaked hands with undying courage and lack of doubt that this war for the rights of humanity can be won.

It's the countless multitudes of once throw away human beings that are going to end this injustice. You are one of those towering beacon of lights shining forth though this foggy cloud of indifference Mark.

Our voice will be heard. History tells us it must be heard. Humanity tells us that it is the least of us that shall be crowned this achievement and a final place of restful contentment.

So what is it we do? We continue to do what we are doing; as we continue to push the envelope going forth as those with a good conscience, a righteous cause, and persevering faith always do. We call out the perpetrators and face them head on each and every day. We have to believe that this good will in time climb over great obstacles, triumph over greedy egotistic evil; even though this journey is obviously going to be a painful one, arduous in both scope and scale, and many times a grueling thankless task with little support or encouragement.

Yours Truly,
Stan
