How & why is Darren Wilson guilty of manslaughter in killing Michael Brown?

November 30, 2014

UPDATE: 12-9-14 DOJ autopsy by  Air Force pathologists agrees with Shelton that some wounds may be re-entry wounds that hit chest after first going through forearm or  first going through forehead to cheek & out jaw (Shelton said maybe upper arm altho she did not examine body and only read autopsy reports) .  This suggests that R arm was up when shot.

Ask yourself: What is excessive force and when should deadly force be used?  If deadly force should not have been used or if it should have been used and then was used excessively, then Wilson is guilty. Also ask yourself what questions should Wilson answer about his behavior. Were they even asked? Finally, how do you interpret the autopsy reports. What do they mean.

The trajectories of the last two bullets show convincingly that Brown was already down when Wilson administered these coup de grace shots. Yet the grand jury was never told in detail about the bullet trajectories and what they indicate. (read further)

Forensic pathology can be a powerful tool. My teacher, Dr. Sandra Conradi, of the Medical University of South Carolina, former President of the American Academy of Forensic Pathologists, once proved a man innocent by self-defense of murder by lining up the trajectories of shot gun pellet wounds of the deceased with metal rods that proved the deceased was standing in a position of a man that was holding a gun. This affirmed the statement of the accused that he only fired because the dead man was holding a rifle and shooting at him.

A grand jury is not to determine innocence or guilt, yet that is how prosecutor McCullough used the St. Louis grand jury. That is prosecutorial misconduct. His father was murdered by an offender when he was a cop and many of his relatives are cops. He was biased and should have recused himself and recommended that a special prosecutor be appointed.

The role of the grand jury is only to determine probable cause. The grand jury is a one-sided presentation of evidence supposedly against the defendant and is meant as a rubber stamp for approving hearsay and allegations, not to determine innocence or guilt.  Only one side is presented and that is the  side determined by the state’s attorney. If the state’s attorney wants an indictment, he gets it almost universally. If, like with McCullough, he does not want an indictment, then he won’t get one because he can selectively manipulate the presentation of evidence and enhance rather than diminish confirmatory bias. Thus, even the fictional Mickey Mouse or a ham sandwich can be indicted. The grand jury system is fundamentally flawed and should be reworked by Congress and by constitutional amendment.

Please note that it is almost  unheard of for the prosecutor to call the defendant as a witness at the grand jury, especially to call him for the main purpose of demonizing the victim. This is gross abuse of prosecutorial discretion as the victim can not defend his reputation and is a slick manipulation of the tools of psychology to  bias the jury against the victim. For a detailed explanation how the prosecutor who is skilled can manipulate a jury read here.

When Wilson called out to Brown to get on the sidewalk, if he meant to follow that up with a jaywalking ticket or arrest for the shoplifting, then he should have gotten out of his car.  He apparently did not connect the shoplifting with Brown, or he would have called for back-up, simply followed Brown with his car and then with help of colleagues arrested Brown.

Instead it is apparent, that he simply used his car to intimidate Brown by backing up so that he was next to Brown and Johnson. Then the testimony varies. Some believe Wilson grabbed Brown through the window and then Brown slapped Wilson with an open palm which enraged Wilson who pulled his gun and threatened to shoot Brown if he did not comply. Others say Brown slammed against door and beat Wilson viciously with his fists, to the point that Wilson said he  feared for his life and pulled his gun. Pictures of red-cheeked Wilson comport with a slap and not a punch with a fist. The stories then further vary with some stating Brown was grabbing Wilson’s gun to shoot him, but others stating he was just grabbing the barrel of the gun to push it away from pointing at Brown. Unfortunately, the gun was wiped clean so that fingerprints could not be lifted from it to determine where Brown’s hand may have touched it. We only know it was shot in the car and a bullet hit Brown’s hand.

The state’s attorney did not ask Brown why he did not simply move his car to get away from Brown instead of pulling his gun. He did not ask Wilson why he didn’t just follow Brown in his car and call for back-up. Did he ask him if at that point he connected Brown with the shoplifting and if he did so, why he did not await back-up?  The slight redness of Wilson’s cheeks and no documented injuries were not used by the state’s attorney to question the veracity of his story that he was viciously beaten to within an inch of his life by Brown forcing Wilson to pull his gun and shoot.  The grand jury by then was so biased by the one-sided presentation from McCullough and the demonizing of Brown that they didn’t question these obvious inconsistencies making Wilson a clear liar to the grand jury. We cannot believe anything Wilson said due to the fact that his story that he feared for his life after such minimal redness to his cheeks and likely deep injury to his pride does not match his “injuries”.

It is because McCullough failed to ask these questions that the bias is so crystal clear.

Then when the forensic autopsy evidence was presented, no one emphasized that at 15 ft away Wilson admitted he let out a volley of shots with at least two of these chest shots in a downward trajectory proving that Brown was already falling down at 15 feet away from Wilson.

No pathologist bothered to state that the back to front forearm wound may line up with the front to back upper arm wound on Brown proving that his right arm was in the air with his hand at shoulder level when he was shot at 15 ft away.

No pathologist bothered to then state that Brown was not just falling down, but nearly on the ground when the last two shots were fired and Brown was 8-10 feet away from Wilson. Wilson admitted that he “sited . . . [Brown’s] head . . .” and fired and the trajectory of the last two shots was (A) through the forehead down through the cheek and out the jaw proving top of head down towards toes trajectory and (B) through top of head with towards toes trajectory.

As Wilson and Brown were the same height, 6′ 4″, this  means that Brown was either on his knees falling down or nearly completely having fallen down, when Wilson made the final head shot in a coup de grace manner.

There is no way Wilson saw Brown’s face at the last two shots as the trajectories prove Brown was looking down, not at Wilson. So how could Wilson say Brown looked like a mad demon or whatever if he couldn’t see his face? Wilson was looking at the top of Brown’s head when  he fired the last two shots at 8-10 ft away. It is unlikely that a Brown was “charging” at Wilson without looking at him.

Have someone make a computer animation of how Wilson could shoot Brown with a downward trajectory as explained in the autopsy notes that does not suggest excessive force and/or intentional coup de grace.  Just try! The pathologist could have passed a straight rod through the wounds and taken pictures to show the trajectories more clearly. He Could have even positioned the body for the last four shots and the arm shots to prove what I am stating about what the body position  was likely to have been when Brown was hit. I hate to suggest this, but I would even like to see the body of Brown exhumed and this done so that my allegations can be proven.

The U.S. Attorney should investigate this case for prosecutorial misconduct, civil rights violations, and perjury by Wilson. The Gov. should look into how a  new grand jury can be convened with a special prosecutor. Congress should call hearings about  court, judicial, prosecutorial, and police corruption and misuse of grand juries. The people must rise up unite not under racism but under judicial reform and fight the system until it is reformed.

This is because Wilson in my book is guilty of manslaughter, as are so many other officers. We must change training of officers and laws so that shooting is the last resort and that it must stop when the person falls or is no longer a threat.

 

Fox News Megyn Kelly tries to smear cop victim Brown with false statement about autopsy

October 24, 2014

It is really disturbing to me for arrogant hate-mongers like Megyn Kelly to jump to false conclusions based on her layman interpretation of autopsy reports, as she did when she interviewed the Brown family attorney, Mr. Crump on The Kelly File on Fox News a few days ago.

The autopsy of cop shooting victim Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, by Dr. Norfleet, says that he had a wound in his forearm from the back to front. Kelly said (and falsely assumed) based on some statement from another pathologist, Dr. Melinek, that this means he did not have his hands up. This is a false statement. (Note: that the front of the hand is the palm on an anatomic drawing with the arms down at the side of the  body). Also, Dr. Melinek states that she was misquoted in a pathology expert blog here.

Michael Brown could have had his elbow bent and his palm facing his face trying to reflexively protect his face and body from the volley of shots fired at him that seems clearly excessive and perhaps murderous by Officer Wilson.

Every shot is an isolated moment in time.  Each shot does not explain what happened before or after, nor does it explain motivation behind each shot or action.

The autopsy report is also consistent with an innocent person being grabbed by a wildly violent and bullying cop who threatened Brown by pulling out his gun while he had Mr. Brown at his car door, and then Brown with his hand trying to push the gun a way, before getting away from the car.

The witnesses said Brown had his hands up and was 20 feet from the officer’s car when he was hit by a volley of shots, after getting away from the car where the first shot to his hand occurred.

Witnesses said Brown was facing Ofc. Wilson at that point. The two shots to his chest and shot to his upper arm are consistent with that story.

If his right elbow was bent and his palm faced his face then the forearm wound would be “back to front”. It proves nothing about the position of his arms just before being shot by the volley from Ofc. Wilson’s weapon.

The fact that the chest wounds were somewhat  downward and both head wounds were clearly from the top downward means that Brown was either falling down with his head below the level of Ofc. Wilson’s gun or nearly crawling towards Wilson when Brown was shot in the head twice (one bullet at the top of his head downward and one from the forehead down through his face and out his jaw – not straight on backward, but downward).

The pathologist who made statements about the autopsy by Dr. Norfleet, Dr. Judy Melinek, cautioned that her statements were not definitive and that there were many possible explanations for the wound to his hand and arm.

The forearm wound could also have occurred if Brown was running away from Ofc. Wilson and had his arm down at his side, but who runs with their  palms facing forward?  This is unlikely.

The wound to his hand does not prove Brown was trying to grab the gun and shoot Ofc. Wilson.  It could also mean that Ofc. Wilson was trying to shoot unarmed Brown and Brown was trying to save his life by pushing the gun away!

Brown could have had his hands up, but when he started to be shot with the first bullets then turned his palm towards his face as he was falling down on his face.

The autopsy report can only collaborate the reports of witnesses.  I believe a half-dozen witnesses would not all lie about what they saw.

Clearly, the only way Brown could be shot in the very top of his head downward (as a tall man) by an officer, is if  his head was lower than the gun or at the level of the gun, which would have easily occurred as Brown was collapsing from the chest wounds and falling on his face.

Why would the  Ofc. shoot a man twice in the head when he is nearly on the ground after already shooting him five times?  That to me is homicide.

If Brown was committing a crime is not the issue. The degree of force used by Officer Wilson is the issue. Brown was unarmed! Whether Brown was 100 lbs or 300 lbs should also not make too much of a difference if, as the witnesses appear to be saying, Brown was not within arms reach of Wilson, so did not pose an immediate threat to him after he ran away from the police car.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1985 that it is not legal for an officer to use lethal force against a nondangerous suspect running away in the following case where police shot a 15 yr old in the back of the head and killed him, when he was trying to climb over a fence and flee after attempting a buglary: Tennessee v. Garner, 471 U.S. 1 (1985).

Memphis, Tennessee, 1974. Police are looking for a prowler. They spot an unarmed teenager in the back yard. He tries to get away, climbing over a chain-link fence. A policeman shoots the boy in the back of the head.

“The use of deadly force to prevent the escape of all felony suspects, whatever the circumstances, is constitutionally unreasonable. It is not better that all felony suspects die than that they escape. Where the suspect poses no immediate threat to the officer and no threat to others, the harm resulting from failing to apprehend him does not justify the use of deadly force to do so. It is no doubt unfortunate when a suspect who is in sight escapes, but the fact that the police arrive a little late or are a little slower afoot does not always justify killing the suspect. A police officer may not seize an unarmed, nondangerous suspect by shooting him dead.”  Tennessee v. Garner, 471 U.S. 1 (1985).

Suggested plan to stop gun violence in America

December 29, 2012

SUGGESTED PLAN TO STOP GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA

TO BE DEBATED AND DISCUSSED BY EXPERTS IN ALL FIELDS

INCLUDING LAW, MILITARY, NRA, HEALTHCARE, MENTAL HEALTH, POLICE, PRISONS  AND JAILS, RELIGIOUS LEADERS, AND PUBLIC INTEREST GROUPS ON ALL SIDES OF THE DEBATE IN A TRANSPARENT MANNER!

  1. America has 5% of the world population but its citizens own 50% of the privately owned guns the world. Tax ammunition outrageously like we tax cigarettes. Considering outlawing owning more than a few weapons needed by one person to be a member of a militia unless they have extensive mental health examination and background check.
  2. Half of gun deaths are suicides.  Triple mental healthcare spending and  vastly improve access to mental healthcare.
  3. Vastly increase opportunities for teens and young adults for jobs and after school activities. Idle minds are the devil’s  playground. Re-instate the Civilian Conservation Corps started in the Roosevelt era.
  4. Outlaw high capacity ammunition magazines and give deadline to turn them in – do not grandfather them. An untrained person having      to change clips would slow down mass murders.
  5. Find better high tech way to ID guns so that if their numbers are filed off they can still be traced.
  6. Research and discuss ways of tracking and controlling the sale of ammunition and the sale of more dangerous types of ammunition, with consideration of putting limits on certain types of ammunition or finding ways of tracing the sale and usage of certain types of ammunition that are more deadly or meant for military mass murder situations, rather than hunting.
  7. Tax guns at enormous rate with goal of decreasing ratio of guns to number of Americans to half as many within 5 years. Increase availability of voluntary turn in of weapons without consequences.  Destroy weapons turned in and do not resell them.
  8. Outlaw semi-automatic rifles and handguns. Have a panel of experts including military and NRA representatives determine this issue. No grandfather clause.  Maybe allow some stored in gun clubs to mentally certified people, who have  undergone careful background check as to mental health as well as had an  interview by a trained psychologist. Do not allow storage of these weapons in a home where everyone is not certified.
  9. Massive education effort to teach not to stigmatize  mentally ill and to recognize need for mental healthcare.  Teach that most mentally ill people are  harmless, most gun deaths are NOT caused by the mentally ill, but that serious mass murders may be caused by a few very disturbed people who need  help BEFORE they murder someone.
  10. Research and find ways to identify loners and help them integrate into society, as well as find ways to identify when they are falling into psychotic mental illness and becoming dangerous to society like with the shooters in Oregon & at the Colorado theater.
  11. Massively increase training requirements for law enforcement officers and prison guards to include training about mental illness and psychology (at least one year of classes and rotation through  mental health facilities as part of code gray teams and counseling teams).  Three months of post high school      training is not adequate to be employed as a jail or prison guard.  This will take a 5-10 year transition as our police forces are so incredibly undertrained. Parole officers should be required even more training. Study how many peace officers were involved in murder with their own guns or whose guns were used for suicide or accidental shootings.
  12. Vastly improve our education system in the U.S. to  include domestic violence and pre-marital counseling, financial  responsibility, and child development, as well as mental health issues.  Require students to volunteer to help the elderly, the disabled, or the mentally challenged so they understand that the disabled and mentally  challenged are not automatically dangerous.
  13. Close loopholes so that NO gun may be exchanged or sold without check with a national database.
  14. Have intense discussion/analysis as to what diagnoses or mental certification should cause inclusion in database as the vast majority of the mentally ill are not dangerous. Forcing all that  have been treated or hospitalized for mental illness into a database would be grossly unfair.
  15. Judicial reform to take corruption out of our court system and vastly reform family courts thus lowering the extreme suicide rate among veterans and the population due to false defamation of character and wrongful termination of child custody rights.
  16. Do not put all felons in database as most are not  dangerous concerning guns – analyze this more carefully.
  17. Make national effort to put in place system to help wrongfully convicted felons overturn their convictions so that the database is not overtaxed by excessive numbers of people who are mentally  stable but wrongfully accused of being mentally ill or have been defamed and wrongfully convicted felons, or non-violent felons.
  18. Make higher penalties for storing weapons without trigger locks and other appropriate safety measures.

Dr Shelton hired as Internet Political Reporter

September 30, 2009

I, Dr. Linda Shelton, was hired last week as the new “Cook County Government Examiner [reporter]” for the Internet news agency Examiner.com owned by multibillionaire Anschultz who bought the Hearst media empire.

My first two articles highlight two major cases of fraud by Illinois Government officials, that effect huge numbers of persons and violate multiple federal laws including, but not exclusively, theft of honest services, wire fraud, official misconduct, felony violations of civil rights, falsification of records by officials and police, and criminal conduct of IL AG Lisa Madigan.

Dr. Shelton is preparing articles about the corrupt Cook County Courts and its judges, as well as felony civil rights violations and fraud in CCDOC and IDOC. A network of whistle blowers who have evidence of corruption in many departments in Illinois is assisting Dr. Shelton in her writings. These include DCFS, IDFPR, the State Police, the Attorney General’s office, Cook County Sheriff’s office, former Governor’s office, Mayor’s office, Illinois Medicaid, and other departments.

FBI where are you?

Mental Health Care Denied Poor in Illinois

August 31, 2009

The following is A SCHEME TO DENY MENTAL HEALTH CARE IN ILLINOIS TO PERSONS ON MEDICAID.

 Illinois has essentially de facto suspended Dr. Bennett’s Constitutional right to relief from a wrongful conviction by a Habeas petition. Attorney General Lisa Madigan has committed fraud upon the court and the Cook County Circuit Court Judge Lon Schultz has violated Federal and State law, the Constitution, and all morality by convicting her on a charge of Medicaid vendor fraud.

 Please read this carefully and write the Asst. U.S. Attorney General in Chicago, Patrick Fitzgerald – Office of U.S. Attorney General, 219 S. Dearborn, Fifth Floor, Chicago, Illinois, 60604; Director of the Chicago FBI, Robert Grant and the Director of the Task Force on Public Corruption, Special Agent Casanovich, Chicago FBI, 2111 S. Roosevelt Road, Chicago, Illinois 60608, as well as inform the press with letters and phone calls about this gross injustice. Help me disseminate this information far and wide around the world, until agents of the United States government intervene to stop this injustice.

 HABEAS LAW VIOLATED

In March 2009 Dr. Maisha Hamilton Bennett filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus (the grand writ guaranteed by the United States Constitution) in the Illinois Court system. It found its way to the Chancery Court Division of the Cook County Circuit Court before Judge Stuart Palmer. A habeas petition is a last resort step when the court system has failed to free an innocent person or a person whose rights under the Constitution’s Bill of Rights were so violated that they were denied a fair trial.

 Illinois law requires the petition to be heard “promptly” and the warden to bring the prisoner before the court, the court to order the State to produce evidence that the person is being legally held, and allow the prisoner to rebut this evidence and prove he/she has been illegally held because they are actually innocent, the indictment was invalid, no crime was alleged, the court had no jurisdiction, or the Bill of Rights was violated and the person did not receive a fair trial. See: 735 ILCS 5/10‑103, 106, the Illinois Habeas Statute. See: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs4.asp?DocName=073500050HArt%2E+X&ActID=2017&ChapAct=735%26nbsp%3BILCS%26nbsp%3B5%2F&ChapterID=56&ChapterName=CIVIL+PROCEDURE&SectionID=62279&SeqStart=73000000&SeqEnd=76800000&ActName=Code+of+Civil+Procedure%2E .

 To date Judge Palmer has refused to hear the habeas petition, recently transferred it to criminal court, where presiding criminal court Judge Biebel is also delaying hearing the petition for weeks to months.  The law actually says that any judge who refuses to hear the petition “promptly” shall be referred to the States Attorney or Attorney General for prosecution of this illegal act and when found guilty should be fined $1000 and the money paid to the prisoner.

 WRONGFUL CONVICTION DR. BENNETT FOR MEDICAID FRAUD WHEN SHE WAS ACTUALLY PROVIDING EXCELLENT MENTAL HEALTH CARE

 Dr. Bennett is innocent because the indictment is legally void – it didn’t adequately state the facts charged so was impermissibly vague, the Federal Medicaid Law allows the conduct that the State says is criminal – thus the Constitutional Supremacy clause was violated – state laws are invalid if they go against federal law, the trial was conducted unfairly, the alleged prosecutor, Attorney General Lisa Madigan violated the law and committed extreme prosecutorial misconduct and the court had NO jurisdiction as a result. For case law and detailed discuss of Code pertaining to Federal Medicaid Code see:

1) Memisovski v. Maram, [Transfer Binder 2004-2] Medicare & Medicaid Guide (CCH) ¶ 301,515, in that it violates 42 U.S.C. 1396a(a)30(A) – Federal Judge Joan Lefkow ruled in 2004 that the Illinois Medicaid Rules violate the Federal Medicaid Code in that they deny access to care to persons on Medicaid for their medical insurance;

2) http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com/2008/10/criminal-scheme-of-il-attorney-general.html and;

3) http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com/2009/02/judge-jorge-alonso-overturns-federal.html .

 Dr. Bennett was wrongfully convicted of Medicaid vendor fraud in 2003 and is being held in jail without bond. (Now for over 18 months) She is alleged to have ghost-billed for mental health services either not done or done by non-physicians in her practice group practice – she is a Ph.D psychologist and owner of the group, Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare, and alleged to have caused bills to be sent to Medicaid under the name of the practice’s medical director, a physician, who did not see the patients.

 The facts are that Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare was an Illinois Certified Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center run by Trinity Hospital and then when Trinity pulled out, run by Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare. It was an INPATIENT center. Counselors who were M.S. and Ph.D. psychologists as well as physicians when they needed medication treated the patients. The patients’ children were also evaluated and treated with counseling or the parents were counseled. The law allows a service provider to bill the insurer for providing service to the child when the parent is counseled without the child present. The AMA code book for services states this fact. Insurance companies pay these bills with no problems.

 The State put a grandmother on the stand, who was caring for several grandchildren while their mother was in the inpatient drug-treatment center, and she said she was not aware the children were counseled when they visited their mother in the inpatient center. This was the “basis” for the ghost-billing charge. Under federal HIPAA laws the mental health counselors and doctors are NOT ALLOWED to inform the grandmother as she was not the legally guardian. These privacy laws forbid discussions with the grandmother without the mother’s consent. The fact that she didn’t know did not prove anything. It certainly did not prove that the children or the mother were not counseled about how to deal with the drug-addicted mother or parenting.  This was NOT explained to the jury.

 The defense attorney was incompetent in that he failed to put on the stand the counselors so they could introduce the fact the kids and mother were counseled. The law DOES NOT ALLOW the attorney to place into evidence the medical record – only testimony about the medical record, in criminal trials. This is because medical records are considered hearsay and cannot be cross-examined. He failed to put on the stand the children who were then old enough to testify. He failed to put on the stand the mother.

 The billing agent made an error that she admitted she did because the IL Medicaid Provider Service Unit representative told her to do it. This representative told the billing agent, Louise Moore owner of Data Medical Works, that only physicians names could be on bills, so Ms. Moore forged the signature of the medical director on a power of attorney form which allows Ms. Moore to put the doctor’s name on electronic bills, on a Blue Cross/Blue Shield electronic partner trading agreement which allows BC/BS to accept the bills over the wires (computer) on behalf of Medicaid, check them for errors as a service to Medicaid, and forward them to Medicaid. She also forged signatures on an alternate payee agreement so that the checks would be written by Medicaid to Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare instead of to the physician medical director. These checks were immediately deposited in the corporate bank account and not in Dr. Bennett’s bank account. None of this was told to the jury. Dr. Bennett was even charged with this forgery, but the charges of forgery were dropped. I saw the alleged forged documents. They had signatures that appeared to be in the handwriting style of Ms. Moore and many of the alleged invoices’ provider signature presented to the crime lab in the perjury charge appeared to be cut-outs from the handwriting exemplars (handwriting samples) that Ms. Bennett was forced to provide where she was told to write the medical director’s name 30 times or so on a piece of paper. Even my teenage son, at the time, was able to match specific signatures from the handwriting exemplars to specific invoices. The crime lab rejected the invoices for analysis because the man I suspect of fabricating them by cutting out handwriting exemplars, State Police Investigator William Reibel, refused to produce originals. That is why the charges were dropped, to my understanding.

 Community alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers, per Illinois Statute, separate from the Illinois Medicaid Code, are allowed to bill Medicaid under their corporate name and not a doctor’s name and to bill for services of non-physician counselors and psychologists, as long as a physician medical director sets policy – not that she sees patients.

 Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare sent patient encounter forms to Ms. Moore listing the counselor’s name and not the doctor’s name, for each clinic visit when a patient was seen by the counselor in or out of the inpatient center. Without Dr. Bennett’s knowledge (she was the CEO) Ms Moore changed the name of the provider counselor on the electronic bill she generated from these patient encounter forms to the name of the doctor medical director and sent them in to Medicaid electronically. Medicaid then paid Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare. The payments went as salaries to the counselors and to overhead. A small percent went to the CEO. The total amount received from Medicaid for several years was about $400,000.

 Therefore, Dr. Bennett is innocent because she was not involved in putting the medical director’s name on the electronic bills. She did not profit from this error. The federal and state laws allow physicians to bill for their employees. Ms. Moore should have used the name of the corporation and not the name of the medical director on the electronic bills. There was clearly no intent to defraud.  All services were actually provided and addicts received appropriate treatment, as did their children who needed counseling to cope with this situation of an addicted parent.

 There was an administrative error that WAS NOT A CRIME in that the name of a physician medical director instead of the group name was put on the bill, by order of the Medicaid Provider Service Unit representative. All services were provided; only the incorrect provider name was on the electronic invoice, at the direction of Medicaid to Ms. Moore.

As 80 % or more of mental health services are provided by non-physician psychologists, psychiatric nurse counselors, psychiatric social worker counselors, drug-addiction counselors (all licensed in Illinois) and their supervised students, it is bizarre and simply wrong for the State to claim that ONLY physicians can provide mental health services and Medicaid won’t pay for non-physician services (unless provided by a certified and licensed community mental health center.)  This would prevent access to care for Medicaid patients to ALL private psychologists, counselors, etc.  This is simply a fraudulent scheme to deny mental health care to persons on Medicaid to save the Illinois budget. This is also a scheme AG Lisa Madigan uses to claim she is “tough on fraud” and to take advantage of the present climate of hating physicians. These fraudulent indictments of Psychologists and psychiatrist are used as a smoke screen and scapegoat to hide the fact Illinois is violating the Federal Medicaid Code and the Constitution. I was also fraudulently indicted, but found NOT guilty because I had a good attorney. Dr. Bennett did not have a good attorney.

 The Illinois Attorney General’s statement about the conviction that Dr. Bennett is a scumbag who ripped the state off for $400,000 billing for mental health services for children that never were provided is nothing but a bald faced lie.  AG Lisa Madigan should be impeached for fraud upon the court and fraud upon the public.

 This is penny wise and pound foolish, as failure to treat mental health patients increases, suicide, family break-up, and crime, as well as increased cost to the state for welfare, criminal justice, prison, and hospital care.

 Mental Health care in Illinois to poor persons is virtually non-existent. The United States healthcare system is in meltdown and our legislators are acting like children instead of addressing the issues.  I miss Senator “Teddy” Kennedy deeply! God Help Us!

Cook County Sheriff Staff are Puppets of Corruption

August 9, 2009

THE STORY OF HOW THE DEMOCRATIC MACHINE IN CHICAGO THRIVES AND PERPETUATES GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION, WASTE, INEFFICIENCY, AND FRAUD 

A person asked on line about the fights at the jail this past week where inmates stabbed each other. “With todays riot I think all tax payers should call Sheriff Dart and ask why he refuses to hire more staff as federally mandated, why the E.R.T. (emergency response team) doesn’t search or respond to trouble, why doesnt he fire Director Godinez.”

The answer is not wasting tax-payer dollars on more guards. We need to reduce the jail population to less than 6,000 from its previous high of nearly 11,000. Non-violent offenders should be sentenced to alternatives other than jail that actually benefit society. There are lots of things a sentenced criminal can do as community service other than just picking up garbage, including providing free or reduced services as an employee for the state in almost any job category. Mentally ill convicts, including addicts, should be treated not just jailed so jail does not become a revolving door. There is not even 1/4 the mental health services available to probationers or parolees that are needed. Guards should be required to have a higher level of training, not only in terms of judo, but also in recognizing and de-escalating violence due to mental illness, as well as not treating every refusal to do as told as voluntary and requiring force. Mentally ill are often confused and react better and more compliantly with “herding them gently” or backing-off and giving them space, instead of with brute force, which generally will be irrationally resisted. Women who have been raped or assaulted may go into flashbacks and not even realize where they are, as they are reliving in their mind the brutal attack. Guards need to be taught to control without brutality and foul language. This is not a good example. They should be teaching inmates how to resolve conflicts peacefully and civily not escalate them to violence as the officers often do, because that is what they are trained to do.

Another internet writer stated: “Amen to that, Linda. Why are so many non-violents that could be on house arrest still in jail. And why does the judge get to say “this drug addict is not fit for rehabilitation” without even giving it a try? It baffles me.”

You have to understand Cook Co runs on patronage. You have to have large armies of uneducated workers who vote for you as a candidate, and bring out the vote by acting as poll watchers and bringing people to the polls, especially dead people. Sheriff deputies, Court Clerk staff, DCFS workers, IDOC staff, etc., fullful this role nicely.

To hire such a large army you need to make sure they take long lunches, do only half the job they could so you can hire two for every one employee needed, or campaign on public time. You make your payroll bloated with excess staff. You fire employees who are efficient. You remind employees that if they work to fast they are depriving another person of a job. You promote only those who enforce campaigning and fundraising efforts. You promote incompetents who don’t think for themselves, never questions “authority”, and are loyal to the patronage system. You don’t document anything and you engage in deals behind closed doors.

In order to have lots of guards you need to deny personal recognizance bonds for non-violent (I-Bonds). You need to put people in jail instead of on probation. You need excessive sentences, particularly for drug and non-violent crimes. You need a revolving door of a corrupt parole system and no mental health or drug addiction treatment.

So you need lots of prisoners or you can’t hire lots of guards and keep complaining that you need more guards! That’s the way the machine works to keep the corrupt in office. Guards are used! They are coerced and manipulated and made to think that if they squeal by going to 2111 S. Roosevel FBI office and ask for a duty agent and then provide evidence of corruption, patronage, brutality, medical neglect, excessive force, and fraud, that they will lose their jobs! Guards are fools to cooperate with this corruption. They would have a better job, better working environment, better benefits, if they were trained properly, if they followed the law, and if 10 % of our tax dollars weren’t going into political campaigns, like (”Friends of Madigan) through illegal kickbacks (bribery).

Remember the guards are abused as much as the inmates because they work in crowded unsafe conditions, are improperly trained and encouraged to be sadist, foul-mouthed and vulgar, intolerent, and violent hotheads, and without proper mental health and drug addiction treatment the inmates are dangerous. Guards are simply crazy to keep voting for the same idiots who are USING THEM and demanding 10 % kickbacks (bribes) to their political funds like “Friends of Madigan”. We need a massive grass roots movement, including the guards to vote out of office these criminals including Stroger, Madigan (Lisa & Michael), Dart, the Daleys, Beavers, Burkes, Jones, Steeles, Lipinskys etc., and their puppets. Political office in Illinois needs to stop being an inherited oligarchy. We simply have to help the FBI and U.S. Attorney take down King Richard Thompson, his Lords Madigans, Daleys, Burkes, Beavers, etc., the Sheriff of Nottingham Dart (previously Sheahan), and his high executioner Alvarez (previously Divine).

Anyone who wishes to help me do this – citizens and officers alike – you can even help in anonymous ways – e-mail me at picepil@aol.com.

Let International Court at Hague Prosecute High U.S. Officials for Torture, Pardon Those Below Cabinet Level

July 12, 2009

I support President Obama in denouncing torture. I wish to share the following view with our administration, especially Attorney General Eric Holder:

We can not lead the world from a moral high ground if we violate our own fundamental principles. This only leads to more hate against America from around the world. This produces a more dangerous world. Under NO circumstances can we compromise our ethical principles. If we do so, then our enemies have reason to torture our soldiers when captured in war and we have NO ethical ground to stand upon.

I believe that America committed war crimes when then subjected prisoners to torture and renditions. However, our country should not be distracted by and be caused to spend a huge amount rehashing this issue. It is not an American issue. It is an issue for the world to be concerned about.

Therefore, I believe that President Obama should grant blanket pardons to all that participated in such crimes who are below cabinet level rank and urge the International Court at the Hague to do the same. We should let the International Court at the Hague decide whether to prosecute U.S. officials at the cabinet level or above, as this amounts to a crime against humanity that the world should be concerned about. If we request that others be prosecuted for war crimes, we should accept the fact that at times our officials should also be prosecuted for war crimes.

Cook County Jail Staff Daily Commit Assault with a Deadly Weapon

March 23, 2009

Jerry Brown, the Attorney General of California has indicted a doctor, a nurse, and a pharmacist for elder abuse and assault with a deadly weapon for forcing high doses of psychotropic medications on Alzeimer’s and other patients to shut them up and keep them in a zombie like state. Three patients died due to results of these wrongful acts.

In Illinois it is illegal to involuntarily force psychotropic drugs like Haldol, Zyprexa, Ativan and even Benedryl by injection on patients unless they are an immediate danger to their own life or someone else’s life and then a court order must be obtained to continue the medication involuntarily.

Cook CountyDept. of Corrections (Cook County Jail or CCDOC) officers constantly request nurses to give such medication to shut up complaints by inmates, to quiet them even though they are not harming anyone and are locked in their cells, and in retaliation for disagreements with the officers. Nurses call doctors on the phone and ask for prescriptions and the doctors illegally prescribe the medication without examining the patients. Even if they examine the patients doctors at CCDOC under the direction of the Director of Psychiatry, Dr. David Carrington, continue to violate ethical standards and the law with such prescriptions when they are not needed and when there has not been adequate evaluations or diagnoses that require such medication. Even if the medications may be indicated, they cannot be given involuntarily except under strict guidelines.

I complained to the Illinois Guardianship and Advocacy Commissions Human Rights Authority Branch that by law must investigate complaints of violations of the Illinois Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code. They sustained my complaint that psychotropic drugs were being given illegally to inmates to shut them up. After the HRA warned Dr. Carrington that this illegal practice must stop, Dr. Carrington and his staff with assistance of the officers are continuing to violate the law. Each act of forcing psychotropic drugs on an inmate/patient without proper diagnosis and without documentation that they are a danger to their own life or the life of others is a class A misdemeanor.

For more details about this “Haldol Menace” see:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA2S-oOOJyY&NR=1

Dr. Carrington should be disciplined, his license revoked, the nurse’s involved licenses revoked, and the officers retrained to understand the law and how to properly help in the mental health care of mentally ill persons without assaulting them.

If this was California, Dr. Carrington would be charged with abuse of patients and assault with a deadly weapon and face up to 11 years in prison. Why is State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez doing nothing? Why is the United States Attorney who came to the same conclusion about this medical battery and malpractice doing nothing? We need a public outcry, legislative hearings, and indictments and action by the Illinois Department of Professional Responsibility.

Please complain to:
Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, Cook County State’s Attorney, 50 W. Washington, Room 500, Chicago, IL 60602,

Patrick Fitzgerald and Joan Laser, Asstant United State’s Attorneys at 219 S. Dearborn, 5 th Floor, Chicago, IL 60604, and

the press.

This barbaric medical battery and abuse must stop! Injection of these drugs into asthmatics or others without careful review of their medical records and careful diagnosis is malpractice, assault with a deadly weapon, and medical battery. It may cause death in certain persons (fatal laryngospasm in asthmatics) and permanent brain injury. Haldol has now been documented to cause brain atrophy in long term use and has a half life of 8 days in the brain – and leads to serious complications in at least half of people it is given to.

Dr Shelton found NOT GUILTY of Medicaid Vendor Fraud – Suit Against IL AG Lisa Madigan, Judge Alonso & Pantle & IL Medicaid Fraud Unit

February 27, 2009

I am now suing the sham Judges Pantle and Alonso, the sham prosecutor IL AG Lisa Madigan and incompetent and corrupt members of the IL Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, Inv. Reibel, Patrick Keenan and others for malicious prosecution, wrongful arrest, wrongful incarceration, and conspiracy to violate civil rights under color of law [in retaliation of me as a whistle blower]. See Federal case in the Northern District of Illinois, Federal District Court, 06 CV 4259, available at the court website called “Pacer”. Anyone can sign up for free, but documents costs 0.08 cents a page to download.

The following is a letter to Special Agent Robert Grant, Director of FBI office in Chicago. Please write him and urge him to follow my suggestions!

Dir. Robert Grant
Chicago Office – FBI
2111 West Roosevelt Road
Chicago, IL 60608-1128
(312) 421-6700

After unconstitutional rulings by Circuit Court of Cook Co Judge Alonso that fixed my trial and made wrongful conviction certain unless there was jury nullification I didn’t show up for my State trial on Medicaid vendor fraud for which I am innocent. The jury made a finding of NOT GUILTY and Judge Alonso quashed the warrant for arrest on the basis of jumping bail and disobeying his orders because he said “what’s the point.” Now why don’t you read what I sent you and get the Cook County State’s attorney to arrest Itadel Shalabi and Nareman Taha for perjury [they are the ones who fabricated bills for Medicaid to get payment for patients they didn’t see] and indict Louise Moore of Data Medical Works for Medicaid fraud [she bills for her billing services for the last ten years by percentage (8 %) which amounts to fraud as you know] and also for forgery as she forged my name on a power of attorney form, blue cross/blue shield electronic partner trading agreement, and alternate payee agreement so that Moore could put my name as a doctor and my Medicaid provider number on the invoices sent to Medicaid for services not done and encounter forms fabricated by Shalabi and Taha, and then Shalabi and Taha who were partners of Vernon Glass the CEO , could sign checks to themselves when the money came into the business Right Frame of Mind & Associates. Why don’t you arrest MFCU Inv. Reibel for falsifying his records and take over all Medicaid Fraud investigations in IL before the dysfunctional MFCU mucks up any more. Vernon Glass is innocent too, yet he must also stand trial? I want to talk to you and give you all the evidence which I now have to prove the above. What’s wrong with you?

Read my blog: http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com/ for more details.

As to the Sen. Burris issue what’s wrong with you. Read the following. Why aren’t you going after Lisa Madigan and other members of the real cabal of corruption in Illinois? As I told you, only a “Truth Commission” will really bring the light of day to corruption so it can no longer thrive. Why are you and the U.S. Attorney being so sloppy and ignoring your best witnesses such as Vernon Glass, Maisha Hamilton, me [Dr Linda Shelton] and so many others I can refer you too. The cabal have been destroying us as witnesses by falsely accusing us of crimes or defaming us with false accusation of mental illness. You and the U.S. Attorney are puppets of this cabal by your ignorance and actions ignoring us and feeding these false rumors.

Unbelievably, the jury was a group of well educated individuals who lived primarily in downtown Chicago. They saw through the lies of the prosecutor and the judge’s unconstitutional rulings and came back with a verdict of NOT GUILTY. Then the judge gave up, said “what’s the point” [of the arrest warrant he issued on 2-18-09 when I refused to come to the trial and disappeared”.] He then quashed the arrest warrant. So now I am home and I will pursue a suit for malicious prosecution, wrongful arrest, conspiracy to violate rights under color of law and violation of civil rights against the sham prosecutor IL Atty Gen Lisa Madigan who had no legal authority to usurp the powers of the State’s Attorney and indict or prosecute anyone. The Constitution and laws in Illinois specify that ONLY the State’s Attorney can decide charges, indict and prosecute most crimes. The AG is given authority by law to alone prosecute about 8 crimes such as gambling and environmental crimes. Medicaid vendor fraud is NOT one of them. The SA was never involved int his case. Since the IL AG had no jurisdiction, the court had no jurisdiction. Therefore, the prosecutor and the judge lose absolute immunity. Lack of jurisdiction is the only reason they lose immunity. So I have a suit in federal court now against IL AG Madigan, Judge Pantle, Judge Alonso, and the State Police personal at the IL Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. I wish the US Attorney would get involved as the IL MFCU is so sloppy at investigations that they arrest the wrong people, destroy evidence against the real criminals and allow themselves to be used as a weapon against whistle blowers for political benefit….

I am astonished that you have not interviewed Dr. Maisha Hamilton Bennett, who was wrongfully convicted of [Medicaid fraud, Naomi Jennings who was wrongfully convicted, me [Dr Linda Shelton] or Vernon Glass on the issue of wrongfully alleged Medicaid fraud in Illinois and the illegal and unconstitutional actions of the IL MFCU as well as the scheme by IL Government to deny mental health care to patients on Medicaid. This is a big economic issue as failure to treat mental health care increases crime, welfare costs, and Medicaid costs. You are contributing to economic failure by failing to properly deal with this issue! This is also an act of felony violation of civil rights and ADA violations by IL Government!

Sincerely,

Linda Lorincz Shelton, Ph.D., M.D.

Death of Inmate from Neglect – Physical Threats Against Dr. Shelton by Correctional Officers – Inaction of FBI and U.S. Attorney

January 14, 2009

Dr. Linda Shelton physically threatened by Officers

Please Avenge me and Fight for Justice to be Brought Against Perpetrators if you hear I have been killed or severely injured by police or sheriff staff.

I have received many threats over the last eight years in retaliaton for my activism behind the scenes and now public whistle blower activities. I wish now to share them with you. So far the FBI and US Attorney are doing nothing to protect me. They are slow and inept, lacking sufficient staff, green in many ways, with warped priorities. I don’t expect their help. I do expect a short life. All of this information has been forwarded to the US Attorney and the FBI.

I answer questions on a commercial web site set up by companies to sell services to inmates and their families. The Cook County Jail web site is very useless and poorly done. I believe ALL inmates and their families deserve humane treatment and answers. So I answer as many questions as possible as a public service at this web site, where I write under the name “Linda”. They have even impersonated me and used the name “Linda”:

http://www.cookcojail.com/questions.php

These offensive posts containing illegal statements have been removed now from the web site by the web site administrator after they reviewed them at my request. The following are copies of posts on this web site threatening me with physical harm by officers pretending to be family of inmates or released inmates:
___________________________________________
This Linda lady who all you people are writing to and asking questions is a complete fraud. Look at how many times she has been charged and locked up. She has on numerous occassions assaulted many law enforcement officials and has a rap sheet longer than your arm. This lady is not stable she has no life or purpose. She stays with drama and propoganda in her life. People wake up if you need answers about Cook County go to the official web site. I work at the jail and have come into contact with Linda Shelton she is violent uncontrolable and very abusive both verbally and physically. You Ms. Shelton are a SHAM!!!! because the next time you get locked up, and there will be a next time, if you act they way you have been you will be delt with firmly and swiftly. just know that Ms. Shelton they now have tasers and pepper spray for people just like you. Remember, don’t forget you heard it here first.

Officer “Augistine” – Yes,I will remember your lies and your threats of physical harm. I am forwarding them to the FBI and US Attorney. It is a federal felony to threaten a federal witness. For those who want to know who I am, I have nothing to hide. I am a non-violent pacifist, disabled, and a federal witness agaisnt corrupt officers and officials at the jail. Any officers that wish to confess and perhaps get leniency, I suggest you contact Asst. US Attorney Joan Laser of the US Attorney’s task force on civil rights violations in Chicago. I also suggest any inmates who have been illegally abused with unnecessary injections of drugs to shut them up or retaliate against them should contact the Illinois Human Rights Authority – Director Parks. They will be coming to the jail again to again investigate the illegal use of drugs against inmates which is a criminal violation of Illinois Law. It reminds me of what the Soviets used to do to dissidents and activists who patriotically fought for their rights and their country. Nazi’s like you Officer “Augustine” will be taken down!

E-mail to FBI from Shelton:

Please investigate the following from the web site listed as follows and inform AUSA Joan Laser. I believe the posters are guards pretending to be inmates. I have also received other death threats by phone in the past – “you better stop what you’re doing or you’re going to end up in the Cal Sag Canal” and “you better look under your car before you start it.” One officer in Evergreen Park told me to watch my back as the 80% of the officers who back me up can’t do anything against the “7 thugs the chief has assigned to get you any way he can.”

I don’t care if they kill me or hurt me. Just know if this happens you could have prevented it! I am going to post this on my web sites to document your failure to protect me or to act on the evidence I gave you. Dr. Hamilton is still wrongfully incarcerated at CCDOC now on her eighth month. The same applies to her.

I don’t know why I bother to tell you all this. I suppose I just want it documented when something happens to me. I’m appalled at your lack of action. We live in a totalitarian police state and you’re part of it. I know I can’t trust you.

If you go to jail and throw yourself on the floor,pretend like you can’t breath, and all together fake poor health (ie. walk with a cane) can you get to a medical dorm ? I knew this Dr. that claimed the guards beat her and her judge put false contempt charges on her and all she did was fake a bunch of illnesses to presude people to release her from jail. I even heard she gets on this website and give people bad advice…best bet is to consult an attorney before you take advice from some crack pot doctor.

T-Bone. I am the doctor you are talking about. I did not fake anything. They denied my medications and tortured me. I underwent a heart procedure in August. I have congenital spinal stenosis and had neurosurgery on my spine where they broke all the bones and reconstructed them. I now walk with a walker due to the injuries received in prison that worsened my conditions. I have a very severe form of asthma due to me being caught in an environmental accident/gasoline spill and overcome by fumes which damaged my lungs. I suggest you read my blogs including: illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com and the links to my other blogs. I am a federal witness against corrupt officials and officers at the jail. I don’t know where you get your information, but you clearly are the person who should not write on this site. If you this garbage info from the officers then you clearly are just being manipulated to further defame me. I suggest you also go to the federal court clerk’s office and look up the suits I have against state officials and police. If you want also go on the Circuit Court Clerk’s web site and look up my cases in Chancery and Law Division against IDOC for torture, violations of ADA, excessive force, violation of civil rights, failure to provide medical care, etc. Perhaps you are even a staff member at the CCDOC who is trying to discredit me!

By the way T-Bone, I turn over copies of all such false statements against me and death threats to the US Attorney. It is a federal felony to threaten a federal witness as others have done on this site. I can also subpoena the records of this web site and sue you for defamation of characteer. See you in court!

JESUS….. Lemme just say a few things here…. Try working there. you have to remember 99% of the people coming and going are assholes,un educated, and just f*ckin rude w/ no respect. Therefore unfortunatly some of that nasty attitude gets reflected back to the whole 1%. Brittany, his bond is 2000.00.. Linda, either you work here or you spend too much time here. As for medical attention, 75% of these inmates do not take care of themselves in the world… they come to the County, and CRY and BITCH about everything from, headlice to toothaches… therefore ((% of the problems the medical staff has to deal with is BULLSHIT, just so the inmate can take a walk, or get a lil more attenetion. Get a f*ckin job there… and we’ll see day to day, how the GUARDS are treated. Also person looking for info on Div 4.. it is now a mens division, probably due to the OVER-CROWDING of these nice, sweet, innocent individuals…

Erin – aren’t you talking about the guards? They are poorly educated, undertrained, bullies, psychopaths, sociopaths, who have no supervision except by those that have been violating the law and abusing others for decades. I suppose you think Burge is a Saint also! If you read the recent US Attorney’s report at http://www.usdoj.gov/usao/iln/pr/chicago/2008/pr0717_01a.pdf there are also a significant number of guards who are murderers and felony civil rights violators. Even dogs are treated more humanely than inmates at CCDOC per the US Attorney. I’m just waiting for the indictments. Once we clearn up the place the officers who are left may be able to do a better job and then they will receive the respect they will have earned.

linda,get a life.you do not have a clue as to the type of people that are incarcirated in the ccdoc.some are there for petty,non-violent crime and the majority you would not want to bring home for turkey day dinner.nasty,violent,murderous individuals that mame,kill,rape,rob,hit granny over the head for her purse and have no remorse.the people that have legit medical problems,I.E.diabetes,high blood pressure,etc are given proper medical care.these people bitch and moan about a sniffle,their toenails are to long,the one they havent clipped in 5 years on the street,their woes from their 30 year herion addiction,the bullitt in their leg from the 1999 drive by,etc.most of the correctional officers are fine people and there is a majority with college degrees that try to give every detainee their basic needs and respect.some of these people spit at us,throw urine on us,physical and verbal abuse.its obvious you or your family has not been a victim of a violent crime.in many countries these inmates would not survive,they throw them in a hole and let them rot,sounds good to me.but rest assured if you have a criminal at the county jail,he or she is eating a sandwich toasty and warm watching a movie.you and people like you are what is wrong with this country.make sure you lock your doors,wouldn,t want to see you get carjacked tonight.

My relatives are correctional officers, state police, military. I suggest you read the 98 page report from the U.S. Attorney sent to Stroger that documents the totally inadequate medical care,, the murder of inmates by guards beating them. I turned over to the affidavits from 40 inmates detailing how they were raped by guards, beaten by guards gratuitously, denied medical care (seizing on the floor for four hours for example). The US Attorney documented one man with a broken leg in a cast with an open wound where the “doctors” cut off his antibiotics and CCDOC staff refused to take him back to the orthopedic doctor. A month later when pus was oozing out of the cast his leg had to be amputated. Also what about May Molina who the CCDOC staff killed by denying her medical care while in a wheelchair when she needed asthma and diabetic care. The biggest problem is that the officers are not trained properly and as the US Attorney said there is an atmosphere of corruption and violence BY THE GUARDS. In Japan jail guards get three years training! You get two months after High School – that’s ridiculous. You barely have time to learn how to shoot and put on handcuffs. I feel sorry for the 90% of the officers who are trying to do a good job even though they don’t have half the training they need. If they would stop covering up for the psychopathic bully guards who are more dangerous than the inmates and if their union would demand better training. I have received death threats from many officers. I have been beaten up by Sgt. Salemi and Ofc. Johnson in the Cermak infirmiry. I have been denied medical care. Guess what! I’m now a federal witness! I won’t stop until the place is cleaned up. I have informed the US Attorney of your threat against me. It is a federal felony to threaten a federal witness. I hope you enjoy your time behind bars!

Hello, My sister recently passed away in prison. August 4th 2008. Her name Tiffany M. Bradley. Her crime, petty. She was in the Phyciatric unit of the jail I was told that her doctor gave her medication. After her did around 8:42 pm she was rushed to St.Anthony’s Hospital where she was she was pronoced dead. The nurse I spoke with that worked on her said she was pretty much doa but he still worked on her and pronced her dead at 8:50 pm. Later, at 1:40 a.m I get a phone call from my mother than she had 2 officers from elk grove in her home telling her her daughter has been dead.l The hours between seem to confuse me. Something is definatly wrong with this. No one will get back to me when they say and I am help-less. My sister didn’t and was not supose to die. I believe if the jail was run better and not corrupt that she would have lived. If you would like more info, please feel free to ask, Sincerely in devistation, Noelle Kwiatek

I have a couple of questions, I have been visitng my grandson every visiting day since May, he hasn’t received a haircut in all that time, his uniform is filty too large, he said that is the same uniform he received when he first went in which was April, he said he was told that the inmates get a different uniform each week, when he first went in there, the pants and shirt fitted him, but since he has been in there he has lost a lot of weight, now the clothing look like they are hanging on a stick, and he has a medical condition where he is unable to eat certain food, the acid in his stomach has burned his esophagus real bad, so that caused the inside of his esophagus to look like it is raw and has big lumpy looking bumps or blisters, he had a test done in GI clinic and they took pictures, we starting crying it look so bad,due to the acid that keep coming up in his throat and he has no where to spit so he has to swallow it, and it causes him a lot of chest discomfort, he was on medication before he was locked up, he said that he tells someone there that he need medication, but he still hasn’t seen a doctoe there, so in th meantime he is just wasting away due to the problem that he is unable to eat properly or take his medicine, also he is getting really dark, and I dont see why, because he is not out in the sun, i think it is because of his condition. Please can I have some answers. a caring and concern grandmother.
