Newton, Aurora, Virginia Tech, Columbine – type shootings WILL NOT STOP and WILL ESCALATE until we educate about, make access easy to, and fund mental health care

December 16, 2012

I am a retired pediatrician in Chicago.  I also have a PhD in pathology and trained for six months in forensic pathology observing and participating in autopsies including many gunshot victims. In addition I was medical director of a mental health care group practice. I know what I am talking about as I have treated babies and children who have been boiled, beaten, shot, and shaken.  I have smelled their burned flesh and held their brain tissue in my hand.  I have attended their autopsies. The destruction of tissue by high-powered weapons is unbelievable.  Tissues explode inside of you as the tissue is vaporized and the bullets wobble and gas from heated vaporized tissue expands the damage. There is absolutely no reason for high-powered, high magazine capacity weapons for civilian use. I fear though that it will take decades to confiscate them all as there are millions out there and millions of high capacity magazines.  Too many people do not secure their weapons and too many can buy them without background checks. The ratio of weapons to people in this country is so astonishing it is beyond belief.  No weapons ban will fully work until we start taking this ratio down.

However we have to start somewhere like limiting the availability of high-capacity magazines and certain types of bullets.  Although limiting guns in UK and Australia has worked well, it won’t work so easily in America where 5% of the world population has 50% of weapons owned  by civilians!  What are we going to do?  Have a massive confiscation campaign?  Eliminate the 2nd Amendment? NO!  We must close the loopholes concerning background checks.  We must start banning semiautomatic weapons to some extent and slow down their  proliferation.  The number in this country already is more than we will ever need. We must link all background registries at the national level. BUT! How are we going to  define mental illness that makes a person dangerous and that deserves to put them on the registry?  How are we going to help wrongfully convicted felons clear their names.  Are all felons deserving of having a ban on owning fire arms?  I think NOT!

I was wrongfully  convicted of aggravated battery of an officer for “bumping” him with my wheelchair and sentenced to two years in prison, a false charge as Sgt. Anthony Salemi actually attacked me in my wheelchair, falsified his records and committed perjury. Now Chief Judge Evans in Cook County is banning all cell phones from courthouses as the eavesdropping law was declared unconstitutional so no citizen can document corruption of Sheriff officers and judges in courthouses even outside of the courtrooms!

We have no choice with this amount of weapons in our country and t he impossibility of banning them due to the numbers already out there, but to make schools as secure as courthouses.  This is the sorry reality and it will cost us dearly – causing fear in our children and enormous government expenditures. Our 2nd Amendment with the technological advances in weapons and astonishing proliferation of weapons in the hands of citizens in America make us a dangerous overly armed population.

We MUST increase the requirements for police officers training and education.  We have a pitifully under trained and corrupt law enforcement legacy in this country. Read my blogs in the following.  We are now even killing a whole lot of people unnecessarily with Tasers!

We also must MASSIVELY increase our funding for mental health care.  We need 30,000 certified child psychiatrists but only have about 5,000 in this country.  We have been forced to choose between drugging people and providing cognitive or talking therapy.  Drugging won as our healthcare system won’t pay to talk to anyone.  I believe however that talking therapies are critical and drugging often does more harm than good!

Those doctors who do procedures (cardiac and ortho surgery for example) get obscenely high payments while psychiatrists, psychologists, and general practitioners, as well as pediatricians and family practitioners are the lowest paid.  We also pay by the pound.  My patients (Vincent triplets) are in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “lightest triplets in the world” (1997 edition), yet I was paid $50 to put in central lines into ultra premees while vascular surgeons were paid $500 to put in central lines into adults! Go figure! Our priorities are goofy.

Our justice system is so corrupt that honest  harmless people like me are wrongfully convicted (in my case in retaliation for whistle blowing against corrupt police and officials – see my other blogs links to the right) and criminals know all the loopholes.  Some of the most dangerous people are very intelligent and also mentally ill yet are not even in the mental healthcare system.

I fear the backlash against most mentally ill people who are harmless.

I fear that people with post-traumatic-stress disorder (PTSD) will be discriminated against and labeled wrongfully as dangerous. I suffer from PTSD and although I am a non-violent pacifist, I cower and swing my arms in front of my head trying to defend myself against flashbacks of being beaten by corrupt  police (I have been beaten several times and falsely accused of attacking these officers – see my blogs: http://cookcountysheriffdeputies.wordpress.com and http://cookcountyjudges.wordpress.com). This massacre in Newtown has caused me to have more flashbacks revisiting seeing wounded and dying children in the emergency rooms where I worked in Chicago 10-20 years ago.

There is NO mental health care in America; no understanding, respect and compassion for the mentally ill; no support for their families; no help available; just disdain, disrespect, hatred, blame, and ignorance. LaPierre’s and others’ descriptions of mentally ill shooters as “lunatics” and other derogatory terms I would rather not repeat makes the defamation against the mentally ill even worse.

Would you blame a person for becoming sick with cancer or being born with a deformity?  Yet we blame the criminally insane and defame them as evil!  We are a very sick society!

I treated a boy who attempted suicide and when I was releasing him from the hospital, the major university children’s hospitals in Chicago and its suburbs said they didn’t take these kids in transfer who didn’t have insurance (Loyola University, Northwestern University Medical Center, Rush Medical Center, Christ Hospital affiliated with the United Church of Christ and part of Advocate Healthcare) they had a year-long waiting list (Mt. Sinai Hospital and Medical Center), they only took transfers to their mental health unit of persons on Medicaid who lived in their zip  code (University of Chicago); or such other lame excuses all due to the country refusing to pay for mental health care.

I tried to testify in juvenile court that an aunt who was trying to help her nephew, whose parents were in prison for murder, had a child who was dangerous due to his mental illness, a liar and that the aunt was not a child abuser. Instead the child needed hospitalization and mental health care for life. He may grow up to be a mass murderer.  His aunt was falsely labeled a child abuser due to the child’s lies without a legitimate fair due process court hearing. The aunt lost custody of the boy and his brothers. The children were placed in foster care or given to their criminal drug dealing and gang member relatives who the aunt had protected them from. He has already become a rapist and was in prison for a year. His brothers have become burglars and teen drug dealers under the wings of their relatives and the lives of the brother who were doing well with the aunt have been ruined by the Cook County judges and court system.   We need extensive judicial reform!  I would love to testify before Congress.

Instead the judge threw me out of the courtroom, declared I was not a reliable witness, instead listened to a child welfare worker who had a few months training after getting a bachelor’s degree in psychology, ended up destroying my career and now corrupt officials arrested me on many false criminal charges and jailed me in retaliation after I began this campaign to get help for these  people.  Read my other blogs: here, herehere, here & here. The corrupt officials who divert Social Security Title IV-D funds from helping families to judicial pensions and fees for incompetent court-appoint hacks who claim to do mental health evaluations and claim to evaluate family situations (child representatives and guardian ad litums in divorce and custody cases), vilify anyone who tries to change the system and get the country to really look at mental health care, custody decisions, divorce courts, and misuse of government funds because we threaten their illegal funding stream. Read about that here.

Until the Affordable Care Act (ACA) known as “Obamacare”, patterned after “Romneycare” in Massachusetts, is in full swing and expanded to deal with mental health care and cover all Americans as a universal single  payer health care system, none of these mothers will have help and the shootings will continue. Victims also need access to mental health care.

See my suggested 15 point plan to address gun violence and gun deaths in America here: https://twitter.com/DrLindaShelton (1/2 of them are suicides and most are not mass murders but are murders by people known to the victims – 11,000 per year in the U.S.  – compared to about 35-50 in either England or Australia who have both banned and confiscated weapons after mass murders in schools).

Romney clueless about widespread abuse of Billions in Social Security Title IV-D and WAVA Funds destroying children

February 19, 2012

Politicians are TOTALLY ignorant of the widespread abuse of custody & order of protection laws used by corrupt courts & court-appointed attorneys (child representatives & guardian ad litems) to make false allegations against parents (mothers or fathers), get false orders of protection by wrongfully villifying parents with just hearsay and no due process, wrongfully destroy relationships between a parent a child, & then rape the estates of the family including confiscating college funds to pay court appointed attorneys as much as $400/hr or $300K/ case.

See how Romney is totally clueless and ignorant on this topic.

They also pay these court-appointed blood sucking lawyers, in this cottage industry, by federal dollars, Social Security Title IV-D funds, and dollars from VAWA (Violence Against Woman Act).  This is federal felony funding fraud to misuse these funds.  This is NOT in the best interest of the children.

Billions have been wasted in Social Security Titile IV-D and WAVA funds that are fraudulently used across the country to enrich the corrupt courts and court-appointed lawyers, while destroying families and children, the direcct opposite of what these laws were enacted to prevent.

Stop systemic court driven elder abuse and exploitation

December 18, 2011

Courts around the country are placing the elderly under guardianship and stealing their estates despite no clear evidence by competent doctors that they are incompetent.  Greedy court appointed guardians are given total control to rape their estates and make their last days miserable.  Then their families are barred from visiting them while they are incarcerated in nursing homes. Greedy uncaring relatives may be able to obtain an order of protection against other family members.  Courts ignore law and hired gun crooked psychologists or pschiatrists support this corruption without giving the elderly a chance to hire their own or have the court pay for their own mental health professional.

This must stop.  Please sign this petition for Mary Sykes a 92 yr old woman in this position and write to Cook County Board President Tony Preckwinckle, Chicago Mayor Emmanual and your Congressment, Senators, and legislators.  We need hearings and intervention now. Too many are suffering!

Top CDC officials indicted – involved in H1N1 flu and vaccine-autism link mis-information

October 28, 2011

Money rules in America and it has now corrupted our system from stem to stern.  Now there is clear-cut evidence in the highest levels of our healthy policy makers. Big business and multi-national corporations rule America, not the people. Those of us who speak up are quashed like a bug. See details about what happened to me here and here.

Not only have the percentage of ALL income in America, for the top 20%, in personal income group, increased from 20% to 60% in the last 30 years meaning that now 80 % of the population receives only 20 % of the income, but our officials who decide our country’s policies and give our population recommendations are being increasingly shown to be greedy, morally corrupted, and unreliable. See the facts here.

Trickle down doesn’t work. As taxes for the ultra-weathy have decreased from 63% to less than 20% (considering all the loopholes), the rich are getting richer and the ranks of the poor are rapidly increasing.

The rich are getting richer off the labor of the 80% of those of us who bust our butts. The middle class is disappearing. The rich are taking possession of our property as we lose it in foreclosure; as our children, elderly, and disabled lose their rights, parents, freedom, and property through corrupt divorce and probate courts – with the government becoming their guardian; and as the wealth of the 99% crashes, which will be further diminished as the dollar’s value crashes and the stock market falls because both have been artificially bubbled just like housing stock. The present rise in stock values is an illusion.  The fundamentals are not there to sustain it. Eventually there will be a much bigger correction than we have already seen.

See the details of the charges against CDC officials here.

Our healthcare system is corrupt.  Our criminal justice system is corrupt – view numerous blog posts here. Our financial system is corrupt. Our educational system is corrupt.

Occupy Chicago – Fight Corruption

October 9, 2011

Read about corruption in Chicago here (Crook County Courts and Judges), here (general Illinois Corruption), here (Crook County Sheriff deputies), here (Chicago FBI), and here (Chicago Federal 7th Circuit and District Courts).

Write your Senators and Congressmen and demand change in the law to take “personhood” away from corporations so they DON’T have more power than the people!

Demand that the rich pay their fair share!

Demand hearings to change the family and probate court system so that BILLIONS in Title IV-D Social Security funds are used to preserve families and support children, the elderly, and  the disabled instead of prolonging divorce cases by promoting argument and falsely villifying one  parent as “dangerous”, getting fraudulent orders of protection, in order to enrich court appoint counsel and counselors, as well as the corrupt court system; to care for the elderly instead of kidnapping them, abusing them, and stealing their estates when corrupt guardians make fraudulent presentations to the courts; and to protect the disabled instead of abusing them for profit. Read about how veterans are committing suicide after losing their families and being falsely villified here.

The judicial kidnapping of your own children under the color of law is like a repeated relentless rape

a part of you – being ripped from you and there is nothing you can do about it!!!

Sandra Padrone, judicially gagged mother of 4 children who have been kidnapped for 1 1/2 years – separated from the mother, under false pretenses.

18 veterans killing self daily, 90% new veterans divorced within 5 yrs, more die of suicide than of war, stop gov abuse http://wp.me/po8T5-9e

Demand hearings to change the justice system so that non-violent offenders don’t get long sentences and instead get public service saving billions in tax dollars and producing true rehabilitation. Stop retaliation against whistle blowers fraudulently charged with crimes they didn’t do to cover-up corruption of public officials.

People Unite In Protest Across the USA to Stop

Judicial Abuse of American Families

Chicago – United Standing Up for Justice to Stop Judicial Abuse is what dozens of Illinois families will gather for this week across this nation and right in front of the Circuit Court of Cook County Family Division. Thousands of children, disabled and elderly Americans have been removed from their  loved ones without factual evidence by the courts. Protective parents and children ho seek the assistance of the courts when a loved one is being abused become the victims of a billion dollar corruption ring that exists today in the court systems and is protected by those who are to serve and protect the community.
Billions of dollars are used from the Title IV D program to literally destroy families.

Wonda Guider, a mother who filed for an Order of Protection to keep her six year old daughter safe from abuse stated, “I went to the courts to help protect my child. A Guardian Ad Litem was placed by Judge Panter and the unimaginable happened, my daughter was ripped from our home. The courts GAVE HER TO THE ABUSER. I fight for Justice today and protest against the GAL’s Office for all the harm they have done to my child and we stand for all children across this nation being victimized by the court system.”

Gwendolyn Chubb, a mother who has not seen her children for over 3 years because of a FRAUDULENT ORDER signed by Judge Edward Arce who later recused himself for having prior contact with her ex-husband’s boss Commissioner Roberto Maldonado stated, “I protest today because of the excruciating and agonizing pain I must live with each day I am without my children. My children were ripped from me without cause or reason…I stand today in prayer for my children and pray that this never happens to anyone anywhere ever again.”

Many of the cases of abuse have gone to the FBI and the Department of Justice without results. Many advocates for these families believe that the very courts that were established to interpret the constitution and assure the rule of law are allowed to run the courts like a cartel that abuse the system that we the American people pay for through our tax revenue.

Dave Bambic, a father whose children have been removed from him withyout cause as te DCFS allegations of neglect or abuse were declared UNFOUNDED  said, “Judge Haracz and Child Rep David Wessel conspire to alienate me from being the primary caregiver of my children. They have told me that I will be made an example of in Judge Haracz’ court room. I stand for Justice today because XXX and XXX love their father and I pray for all children who suffer like my girls in this nation because of corruption.”

Sandra  Padron during a divorce when her son complained of being beaten in the stomach by the father until he was sick and as a pediatrician she found suggestive signs of child abuse on her baby, had her children removed from her and placed with the abuser when  she called DCFS and asked for an investigation because the investigation, which was incomplete, was declared unfounded. She has been denied unsupervised  visits for more than one hour per week with her children because the judge said this was a sign of mental illness. Sandra says, her toddler is reported to be running around the house crying “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy.” Regina Scannicchio, the court appointed child representative has made no effort to thorougly investigate this case or bring these facts to the attention of the judge. She refuses even to look at the diary pages from the older children documenting the abuse.

Child Representatives & Guardian Ad Litems are court appointed and CHARGE FEES ANYWHERE FROM $400 – $1200 PER OUR. Legal fees for these attorneys are paid from funds through the Social Security Title IV D Fund. Also it is known practice that family court Judges run private referral services with therapists that they personally know and many families are bankrupted by these fees.

Therapists are to serve the best interest and welfare of the children but in many cases the children are emotionally raped and alienated from one of their
parents to benefit the corruptive practices of the “courtroom cartel”.

Salvador Contreras, who back in 2009 reported the neglect, abuse & suicidal thoughts of his daughter in the home of her mother & stepfather stated,”I went to the court system to help save my daughter but instead of helping my child Judge Katz places an ORDER OF PROTECTION AGAINST ME WITH HEARSAY FROM MY CHILD’S ABUSER. Then my worst nightmare happens my child is taken from me for 1 ½ years and we can only see her once a week presently. Her court appointed therapist Dr Beth Wilner never allows her to talk about her suicidal thoughts and we can never discuss the true problems but Dr Wilner does discuss her fees and monthly bills”

Many of these court appointed therapist are part of the corruption and abuse of innocent children and the financial ruin of their families who pay high fees for “therapy” sessions. Families who are placed in this corruptive scenario FILE BANKRUPTCY BECAUSE OF COURT ORDERED THERAPY AND LEGAL FEES. Families lose their homes and college funds.

Gloria Sykes, WHOSE  91 YEAR OLD MOTHER WAS NEVER DECLARED INCOMPETENT BUT WAS IMPRISONED IN A NURSING HOME, STRIPPED OF HER ASSETS AND PLACED UNDER GUARDIANSHIP was ripped from her care said,”I compare this court abuse of the elderly to Hitler’s concentration camps. The pain, fear and the unknown wrongful suffering is unimaginable. I rally today for justice and to stop the court and its officers from abusing our families.”

Julie Contreras, an advocate for many families and whose stepchild is being victimized by the “Court Cartel” stated, “Judges in the family courts today are the ones who determine the fate of many children. All these individuals who partake in the family court system are human and very capable of being wrong, careless, corrupt or just plain lazy. MISTAKES ARE MADE BY JUDGES AND INNOCENT CHILDREN BECOME VICTIMIZED by the very system that was created to protect
them.”

Victims and advocates will stand united to stop the abusive practices of removing a child or elderly person from the custody of the protective parent or family in the court system. At the beginning of each hour of the protest a prayer will be offered to stop the abuse of children, disabled and elderly across this nation.

Organizers of the event invite the public to join and support the families and stop the abuse.
