The United States Department of Justice must investigate several Illinois institutions supposedly engaged in providing forensic mental health services, for systematic corruption, violations of human rights, and honest services fraud.
The Illinois Department of Human Services, the Department of Forensic Clinical Services of the Cook County Circuit Court’s Criminal Division, and possibly several other departments and institutions run by the State of Illinois, consistently coerce or force individuals to accept mental health “treatment” programs based primarily on psychotropic drugs, despite certain awareness or full knowledge that those programs are contrary to the medical interests of those individuals, and to the interests of the community. Incriminating, direct evidence of this was recently turned over to the United States Department of Justice.
This scheme, pattern or practice is believed to have been conceived and continually perpetrated for financial advantage, or to willfully evade contractual duties and clearly agreed terms and ethical standards of public employment, over a period of many years, by certain individuals employed or contracted by the state.
Psychiatric medications cannot be considered as general cures for mental diseases. They only have very specific, and severely limited, valid uses. Labels such as “schizophrenia” or even “mental illness” itself are scientifically meaningless. The State buys inappropriate medical and technical solutions to social or political problems.
Anyone in state custody considered “mentally ill” is expected, required or forced to take drugs whether they like it or not, and whether or not there is any reasonably expected benefit. Illinois’ forensic mental health regime is one of unmerciful coercion and classic thought reform, cynically disguised as modern scientific medicine, which it most emphatically is not. Patients are essentially required, or systematically “educated” to profess belief in utter falsehoods. No M.D. psychiatrist with any eye on potential malpractice liability would ever make the statement that antipsychotic or antidepressant drugs are like vitamins, except in a state forensic institution, where coercion by any method, including flat-out lies, is just the way business is done. Scientific medical reality argues compellingly against the universal compliance with psychotropic medication which Illinois’ forensic mental health officials demand.
U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry told the World Economic Forum gathering in Davos, Switzerland on January 22, 2016, that governmental corruption fuels crime, violent extremism and disillusionment with society. His words are as apropos an indictment of the so-called forensic mental health system in the State of Illinois as they are of any two-bit third world dictatorship:
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, more demoralizing and disempowering to any citizen of any nation than the belief the system is rigged against them and that people in positions of power are … crooks who are stealing the future of their own people.
If anyone is tempted to believe that violent, insane offenders are a different matter, that they are not really citizens, and that they shouldn’t get much broad public consideration, it may be instructive to recall Matthew 25:40:
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
The U. S. Department of Justice must relentlessly investigate state entities and indivuduals for graft (e.g., taking kick-backs or favors from pharmaceutical companies, drug supplier middlemen or wholesalers to meet purchasing targets and ensure continuing or renewed state business), falsification of psychiatric and medical records to meet diagnostic criteria, perjured court testimony in cases involving mental health issues, extortion of compliance with unwanted treatment, conspiracy to violate civil and constitutional rights, and honest services fraud.
