The point of this blog is to have a place to publicly express my opinions, give a little reflection, let others educate me, and let others have at me in civil debate.
I tend to be verbose and I will try to write shorter postings. Many of my postings will be long and meaty.
My interest is primarily people and their opinions, politics, civil rights, medicine, law, self-representation, and most of all right now tearing down corruption in government in Illinois and C[r]ook County. Please read my other blogs, Illinois Corruption and Pro Se Chicago which you can access with links on this site.
I am a pediatrician and mental health service provider (presently unlicensed), former medical and biological sciences research scientist (molecular biology, immunology, and experimental pathology with minor experience in forensic pathology), internet writer, civil rights activist, and ex-con wrongfully incarcerated for the false allegation of kicking an officer with my partially paralyzed leg in retaliation for my whistle blower activities against corrupt officials, police, and courts in Illinois and Cook County.
In fact, it is physically impossible for me to have committed the crime. I am a disabled individual with a partial right hemiparesis, and was extremely weak at the time from severe dehydration. Cook County Correctional Officer – Sgt. Anthony Salemi attacked me and then falsified his records and committed perjury at trial.
I have experienced a lot beginning with discovering in my research greater use for autoantibodies that inspired a group of researchers who went on to use this concept in scientific research in the area of molecular biology. I managed and stabilized the “lightest set of [surviving] triplets” in the world (a total of 4 lb 4 oz combined) according to the Guiness Book of World Records 1997 ed. I have saved lives, counseled troubled teens and families of those with senile dementia, ministered to the dying, comforted the survivors, risked my life to save several women and their children in a hurricane [I was very frightened], and survived unspeakable torture and medical neglect in Cook County Jail and the Illinois Department of Corrections. My son and others (an officer and a politician/ex-Marine) have saved my life during asthma attacks and I have been suffocated and gone unconscious more than once thinking I would die. I have witnessed great compassion and sacrifice as well as witnessed and experienced unspeakable brutality (I have been visciously beaten by officers more than once).
My conviction is on appeal. You can read the details of what happened and the trial at my page titled “Conviction and Sentencing of Dr. Shelton” on this blog.
I have been illegally thrown off a hospital staff (Advocate Christ Hospital and Medical Center, a subsidiary of Advocate Healthcare Corporation), wrongfully defamed, and my medical career destroyed by this and a siege of wrongful criminal allegations against me in retaliation for my whistle blower activities against corrupt officials in Cook County and Illinois including former Gov. and now convict George Ryan, Illinois Attorney General (rumored money lauderer for bribes in Illinois and partner to illegal scheme to deny mental health care to persons on Medicaid in Illinois), Cook County (soon to be former) States Attorney Richard Divine (chief of cover-up of criminal conduct of Cook Count politicians and former passive participant with Burge in torture of prisoners to make them confess to murder), as well as several other corrupt persons.
I have drawn the line in the sand, spoken up and suffered the consequences. I believe in going down standing up and I pledge to keep up the fight as long as I can draw a breath. Our children are too important to let this totalitarian police state continue on this path. I know in large movements like in the civil rights movements the early going is slow and there are casualties at the beginning. I am willing to pay the price for the benefit of our children, yours and mine. I ask others to help.
Please consider contributing to my legal fund to help pay for criminal defense expenses and for litigation expenses as I sue corrupt officials in civil rights actions that will benefit society. You can send a check made out to “Albukerk & Associates”:
Make check out to “Albukerk & Associates” and write: “for Shelton Legal Fund” – this is NOT tax deductible

I am trying to raise $250,000 and I am trying to attract a celebrity or philanthropist to donate a million dollars to start a fund to pay for civil rights litigation for people who can’t afford it.
Anyone willing to donate will be greatly appreciated and if you have computer skills to manage a web site, or are an attorney willing to donate your services pro bono, I would be greatful either for one of my cases where I am litigating on my own (pro se) or for one of many people I have and continually run into who are unable to litigate to obtain redress of grievances or unable to defend themselves as whistle blowers due to lack of funds, against criminal charges.
I have championed the causes of civil rights for the physically and mentally challenged, parents, and prisoners. I want to build a movement for change to make the system transparent and accountable and to expose this corruption. You will find on my other blog, “Illinois Corruption,” unusual honesty and brutal bluntness. The same principle applies to all my blogs.
I have nothing to hide and nothing to be ashamed about. My disabilites, my suffering from post-traumatic-stress disorder, my political views at odds with many, my medical records are public record and it is unethical and simply wrong to use this information for discrimination and defamation against me. I represent those that have been unfairly discriminated against in this manner. I have devoted my life to the service of others. Corrupt officials have a lot to hide. I believe in total transparency. It takes one word to defame someone as people so easily believe false statements, but it tkes a lifetime to reverse the defamation that leads to a civil death.
