The Illinois State Police

In our plan to “burn Atlanta” (aka, sue Corcoran, Malis, Elgin Mental Health Center, et al for millions), the first target was originally to obtain the police report from the day the young-black-Ben-and-old-white-Christy scandal was discovered and Christy was frog walked off the premises. We never quite accomplished that. Our lead PI Mike walked into the Illinois State Police District 2 headquarters in Elgin and asked for the report, but after some checking by the woman behind the counter, he was told that the report was under seal because it’s part of an active criminal investigation, and he was referred to Lieutenant Larry Martinez as the guy in charge. I don’t know whether she was supposed to reveal that, but it makes sense. Lt. Martinez finally called me after a couple weeks of voice mail messages, and within 30 seconds he repeated his mantra (“I can neither confirm nor deny that any investigation is in progress”) five times, word-for-word. What Old White Christy did is called sexual abuse of a disabled person, and it’s a class 3 felony in Illinois. Old White Christy should be prosecuted and she should go to prison for it. But Young black Ben isn’t the only victim. There is a much bigger story. My guess is, the Illinois State Police have little or no concern about any part of this beyond a single criminal charge, presumably against Old White Christy.This is precisely why Ben, his mom and his grandfather, my partner Joe, and our five PI’s, and our network of other patients in the Illinois forensic mental health system, and media contacts, etc., must burn Atlanta and march to the sea.

First of all, Old White Christy abused at least two more disabled people (Mansoor and Angelo) that we know of, and she assisted one of those two (Angelo) to elope from Elgin Mental Health Center and flee the country (that was probably a federal crime — Angelo’s escape prompted an investigation by the United States Secret Service at the time; he was an international fugitive and a child abuser).

But Old White Christy isn’t the only person who is in trouble. Illinois has very elaborate and strict rules about reporting the kind of sexual abuse that she perpetrated. We will obtain extensive evidence in depositions and court testimony, against many people who failed to comply with these reporting requirements because they wanted to protect their fellow plantation overseers and blame young black Ben and the other slaves, whom they believe to be somewhat lower orders of humanity (maybe three fifths or so...), after all. A whole bunch of people will lose their jobs over this.

Plus, any patient who was on Old White Christy’s case load between 2014 and 2017 probably has a credible claim for flagrant HIPPA confidentiality violation and healing arts malpractice. She was asking young black Ben’s opinion and advice on their treatment. Every day Ben was in her office, he had free access to other patients’ mental health files, as well as Old White Christy’s purse, cell phone, credit cards, etc. It’s a big scandal. There will be litigation for years. Lots of plaintiffs, lots of defendants. The media will go crazy with it.

So if I were Lt. Larry Martinez or Leo P. Schmitz of the Illinois State police (“Integrity, Service, Pride”), or Governor Bruce Rauner for that matter, I’d sure cut these corrupt slime balls loose real quick! Just saying.

Dehumanization: Kareemi & Malone

I was passively listening to “Good Morning America” (my wife’s standard wake-up fare, although she says that’s really not what she would prefer to be known for...) this AM, still all about the Harvey Weinstein/sexual harassment issue. A female attorney panelist answered a host’s question, “What is the first thing any woman should do if she’s confronted with this kind of problem?” Of course (!!) the answer was a slightly subtler version of, “Hire me and pay me lots of money...” I think it came out slightly more contrived, like, “The first thing she must do is find out what the law is that applies to her. It’s state law, always, and it varies from state to state.”

My thought was: What’s the matter with the first thing being, Kick the offender’s ass? Or how about, (if you want to be more civilized — some of us do): Tell the offender he’s being an asshole and he should STOP?

The law is merely social machinery. It doesn’t even work, except when live people make it work. You will never accomplish anything by using the law that you can’t accomplish by presenting a body, standing in front of a person fully visible, and changing their mind. I don’t care whether the person whose mind needs to be changed is an insane, violent felon, a sex feind, or a nice family member. It works the same way, regardless.

Anytime you’re afraid, and you don’t quite know what of, you can rest assured it’s yourself! If you cannot stand in front of another person and change his or her mind, it’s because you’re not certain of your own mind. The most fundamental, most debilitating fear, is of the evil that you yourself have done that you don’t want others to know, and that you don’t even want to remember.

So-called “mental health professionals” are part of a machine. They are cogs in the wheels. The machine is totally mired in fear. It’s basic construction material is fear. The most fundamental evil act is to turn a living person into a mechanism (spiritual murder) for the purpose of owning and controlling them. This is precisely what psychiatry does, more than any other subject or discipline in all human history. A person is merely a brain, right? So we can poison that brain, shock it, slice it up, and control the person, right? They sell us this as “forensic psychiatry”, and we buy Elgin Mental Health Center (young-black-Ben-and-old-white-Christy, Corcoran, Malis, Chief Epperson and the Campbell family perverts and all!) in Illinois, with our hard-earned and rapidly-wasting-away tax dollars.

Speaking of which, I’ve noticed that articles on this blog get many times more readers when they mention and insult individuals by name (preferably in the headline). So here’s my latest high-value target.... K and L Clinical Units at EMHC were the scene of the young-black-Ben-and-old-white-Christy crimes of sexual abuse of a disabled person, plus flagrant HIPPA violation, plus disgustingly extreme intentional medical malpractice. Dan Malone and Faisa Kareemi are two of the “Mental health professionals” on those units. It so happens that right now they have a patient named Trevor, whose father is a good friend of mine.

Dan and Faisa are now telling Trevor that there’s no way he’ll ever be released from his psychiatric slavery unless he agrees to long-acting injections of psychotropic drugs. It’s a flat-out cowardly lie, of course: Trevor will never agree to that, and he’ll be released anyway, in about a month. Dan and Faisa are incapable of changing his mind about the “medication” because they are afraid, ultimately of themselves. They’ve turned too many living people into machines. Unfortunately for them, they are now high-value targets for me. (That goes double for Faisa because although she totally acts like an overseer on a plantation, she pretends to be a doctor in a hospital. One element in that elaborate pretense is, no doubt, a nice fat medical malpractice insurance policy, or indemnity by the Illinois Department of Human Services (same deal for my purposes). Kareemi has recently been visited by private investigators working for me on the Hurt case because of her connection to the crimes of old white Christy. But I’ve known her for a long time. I’ve sat across the table from her, and her cowardice is more than obvious; it’s sickeningly, even physically palpable, stinking, when you’re in the same room with her. I’m not sure I know Dan Malone, but I look forward to knowing him!

Friends of Christy

Sources lately have said that many staff at Elgin Mental Health Center are upset by the Refinement of American Slavery, young-black-Ben-and-old-white-Christy story. They should be! If the story were anything but a hypothetical tale that resembles real people and incidents only coincidentally (i.e., if it were true), it would certainly discredit the entire enterprise of involuntary psychiatric “hospitalization” and “treatment”. Media, legislators and the public in general would begin to think that Psychiatry is not a valid medical specialty after all (I mean, what if it’s true that Christy made Ben her assistant, showed him everyone else’s mental health records, and asked for his opinion on treatment plan details? What kind of medical profession is that when the patients never even had to go to med school but they’re in charge of “treating” each other?). More judges would start to say they don’t believe anything a psychiatrist ever says in court. Eventually, stuff like this would actually threaten involuntary commitment and the insanity plea (the two institutional pillars of Psychiatric slavery), and even Jeffrey Lieberman’s vision of a bright future would be cast into serious question!

However, there are some colleagues who remain as Christy’s friends, at least in the facebook sense: this list includes Victoria Imgram, the Director of Court Services at EMHC, Phyllis Gardner-Rudolph, a former EMHC social worker, Colleen Ann McBean-Delaney, a psychiatric nurse, Debbie Brisebois, a mental health counselor of some sort, Kimberley Claire Rosecranz, a therapist, and Al Melendez, nothing less than a sergeant at Chester Mental Health Center (Man, oh MAN! I haven’t been down to Chester in a long time, but I really should visit Popeye soon!).

It’s often tough to speak up, even passively (like by “unfriendling” somebody on facebook). That’s what this whole #MeToo movement is all about. There needed to be a safe and easy rallying cry against sexual harassment, because so many women fear retaliation. Obviously, if you’re Mariah Campbell rather than Chief Epperson, you’re at a huge power disadvantage. But anyone can protest and talk about this stuff now because social media are so anonymous. Maybe there should be a #MeToo/EMHC hashtag specifically for people harassed or abused you-know-where!

In any event, people need to show some backbone and enforce common decency and ethics with their own groups and their own peers. For gods sakes, speak up you guys! Don’t just count on me to march all the way to the Mississippi River and deliver the City of Chester to Rodney Yoder for Christmas, complete with two dozen M.D. psychiatrists and plenty of “mental illness” (but sorry Rodney, no bales of cotton). I’d love to do something theatrical like that, but I need help to actually abolish slavery once and for all under the law and eradicate this psychiatric plantation society. Speak up! Female legislators in Springfield are doing it, so maybe common state employees can too...Use a hashtag, or call me, or just give a disapproving look to Chief Epperson or Corcoran, Malis, Javed, etc., once in awhile. They’re probably too stupid and self-conscious to notice anyway. They won’t come after you, they’re too busy hiding and covering their own rear ends. I’ll promise to keep them busy with that, too!

James Patrick Corcoran for groundskeeper

In a staffing at Chicago Read Mental Health Center today, Dr. Corcoran only had enough courage to show up by speaker phone. It was a forgone conclusion perhaps, but recent email evidence has shown with certainty that Corcoran is the end of the line of responsibility in Illinois, for keeping “patients” locked up who don’t need to be. I.e., he’s the top-dog slave overseer, the buck stops with him.

The new Medical Director at Read (Rick somebody...) complained that he now has a lot of new little, technical things he has to do or account for because of things that happened recently, not even at Chicago Read, but at Elgin. I think this is a reference to the young-black-Ben-and-old-white-Christy thing. Oh well, Rick...

Chicago Read is kind of depressing. The clinical units are dark and box-like. The few windows look out to grounds that are dilapidated and overgrown.

At one point I asked Corcoran whether he’s the guy who’s supposed to mow the lawn. (It would at least be honest work, unlike his pretense of being a real doctor.)

He was still on the speaker phone but he didn’t answer that question.

William “Harvey Weinstein” Epperson

My last post was entitled, “Malis, Corcoran, and the Campbell Family Perverts”.  The truth is, I don’t know anyone in the Campbell family, and I kind of feel bad about summarily labeling all of them as perverts.  Especially Mariah, whom I suspect is a good young woman who works hard. I doubt she would have such bad taste as to bonk Bill Epperson (he’s really an ugly little shit of a man!) in the parking lot, unless she was coerced/sexually harassed. I know Elgin Mental Health Center is not Hollywood, but power is power and people are people. “People + power” sure can = “very strange sex”.

The Harvey Weinstein media brouhaha has demonstrated that young women can be captured by men who seem powerful. Maybe this is what happened with Mariah and the Chief.

Lots of Elgin MHC staff read this blog. I’ll say it right now: If anyone knows of a sexual harassment case, PLEASE CALL ME (847-370-5410). I’ll do my best to win monetary damages for victims and crucify perpetrators. And if it makes you nervous (don’t worry, it’s bound to) to come forward with something like this, just take a lesson from the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Think about how many other women have been, and will be, victimized. Be a hero, blow the whistle early. Whoever speaks up first gets off, and everyone else gets blamed.

Malis, Corcoran, and the Campbell Family Perverts

This is part five, of perhaps dozens still to come, in my article, “The Refinement of American Slavery.”

James Patrick Corcoran and Richard Malis were at a staffing today, for which I was late and thereby missed, much to their satisfaction, I’m pretty sure. My client is a “patient” whom I have represented for many years. He’s one of the guys on Corcoran’s list of most difficult patients because he is in full remission from Schizophrenia without drugs. That’s a difficult situation for Malis and Corcoran, because they deeply believe and promote the idea tha schizophrenia is an actual brain disease that has to be treated with drugs. Any “patient” whose presentation contradicts that orthodoxy is certainly difficult!

It’s more important to Corcoran and Malis to maintain control of the slaves than it is to improve them. They know perfectly well they can’t cure anybody’s mental illness: they’re not really doctors, they’re plantation overseers. Thus they don’t worry about young black Ben being abused by old white Christy on a daily basis for YEARS, so much as they worry about the bad examples set by patients who get better without “medication”. That’s a much bigger problem. Especially considering that “patients” are owned, after all. Why not use the slaves? That’s what they’re for, and staff are entitled.

Speaking of which, there are whole families who work together at Elgin Mental Health Center, and sometimes they share corrupt habits. Like the Campbells. Craig Campbell drew a complaint recently from a female “patient” who reported him to the Illinois State Police for sexually harassing her. His wife Lorrie Campbell strip-searched a male “patient” not too long ago, for no good reason  (she probably just wanted to see a black man naked). Ironically, Chief Bill Epperson was present for that incident, and he later had sex in the parking lot (reportedly) with Craig and Lorrie‘s daughter Mariah Campbell. It’s a pretty tight culture at Elgin.

I was so disappointed to miss the staffing this morning, because I had planned to ask some very pointed questions about all this corruption. I imagined that maybe Corcoran and Malis would have had me ejected by security. Maybe Chief Epperson would have escorted me out of the building, and I’d have had an opportunity to confirm that the girl in the parking lot was Mariah.

I also would have loved to ask Bill why his luck could be SO bad as to get caught in a single quickie... when old white Christy had gotten away with sucking the dick of a “patient” every day for three years. It’s kind of like, “Hey Bill! Are you just too damned STUPID to ever get away with anything, or what?”

Maybe Chief Epperson would have called the police to have me arrested. The default jurisdiction is with the Illinois State Police. Their Division of Internal Affairs is already investigating the young-black-Ben-and-old-white-Christy matter (although the investigator in charge, Lieutenant Larry Martinez -phone # 847-642-4466 will only say that he “cannot confirm or deny that any investigation is in progress.” This is the standard disclaimer, when criminal charges are likely! I might also have asked whether Detective Rick Sandoval ever filed a report, after interviewing the patient who complained about Craig Campbell’s advances. If not, why? Is Craig, or his whole family of pervert abusers somehow immune, as an insider who is entitled, just like Christy? Just like the white Southern plantation class from a previous century?

Refinement of American Slavery, Part 4

Today my twitter feed is full of Stephen Paddock speculation. Nobody knows why the Las Vegas shooter killed fifty-nine innocent concert goers and put hundreds more in the hospital. Of course, he was “treated” by psychiatrists, that’s a mandatory qualification for mass shooters. In his case it was Valium, “mother’s little helper” straight out of the fifties when we all still believed modern medicine was the road to salvation. One “expert in benzodiazapines” speculated that the reason he was prescribed psychotropic drugs probably has more to do with what happened than the drug itself. But the prescribing psych isn’t talking, and it ought to be noticed that they never do. They cite HIPPA and privacy, but of course, the only person whose privacy was intended to be protected by HIPPA is dead. Dead bodies have no privacy, that’s for sure. They get laid out on a slab and examined inside and out, without a single “Excuse me,” by strangers.

Another speculation about Paddock had to do with his father being a psychopath and him being mean to his girlfriend at Starbuck’s. The roles of abused and abuser are not exactly interchangeable, but they certainly alternate and connect in time. Maybe Stephen Paddock was abused by his father. Maybe he was abused by the psych who prescribed the benzo. Maybe Paddock’s father was abused by a psych. The abused become abusers. Christy and her crew on K and L Units at Elgin carefully taught Ben to be a pervert. It happens systematically in psychiatric institutions. And guess what: the ultimate “reason” that Stephen Paddock was prescribed Valium was not a “disease” that the “medicine” would cure (and Chief Epperson was not “helping” the young STA learn her new job, either!)... it was rather, purely and simply, that somebody wanted a human machine they could control, a slave they could own. Same thing with Ben, Christy wanted her own sex slave. Oops, it didn’t work out. It never does, because living individuals are in fact far too difficult to enslave completely or forever. The early history of the United States was the broadest experiment and the most convincing proof of the futility of such ambitions.

Now we have young black Ben, who learned under old white Christy’s complete duress that the way to deal with his situation was to disconnect - to decide that he just didn’t care about anything any more, and that sex is perversion that people use to control each other. He has to walk a long, long way back from that, before he’ll have any normal life or normal relationships.

Illinois psychiatry is sex, drugs, control, institutionalized abuse. We pay for it, probably because we have a deep, fundamental instinct to own slaves. That’s the only reason tragedies like Las Vegas happen, and there just isn’t any medical explanation or cause to discover.

SALACIOUS UNFOUNDED RUMOR

Obviously, the title of this post is intended as a disclaimer. But some rumors turn out to be true, and this one is especially pertinent and ironic.

The individual who is in charge of security at Elgin Mental Health Center, and who said under oath he is investigating the "young-black-Ben-and-old-white-Christy" story -- Chief William E. Epperson,  -- is now said to have been caught having sex with a female staff member in the parking lot. It could be predicted that the  tryst the "Chief" was caught in will turn out to have involved a young and attractive junior staff member, over whom Epperson had seniority and impressive official altitude. Just like with Ben and Christy, it's ultimately about control and perversion; certainly not about anything like normal, innocent human attraction or love!

There is plenty of information regarding victims of sexual abuse of patients other than Ben by staff at EMHC (including but not limited to Christy). There will be other perverted and shameful, illegal incidents that come out. Many staff members' professional and family lives will be ruined, though my own preference would be that it not get quite so bloody among (relatively) innocent civilians.

The thing is, EMHC looks like Atlanta to me; the Illinois forensic mental health system is Georgia, and I am Billy-the-Frickin'-Torch Sherman! There will ultimately be a long list of incidental casualties on the course of my march. People can reliably avoid being on that list of casualties only if they help me burn the plantations and free the slaves: otherwise, I'm sorry for that inopportune stray minnie ball and that indiscriminate party of overzealous bummers. "You might as well appeal against a thunderstorm as against these terrible cruelties of war. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over."

Sawicki Closing Arguments, 10/06/17

FIRST OF ALL, I WANT TO SAY THAT I HAVE STRONG FEELINGS ABOUT THIS CASE AND CASES LIKE THIS. I WILL MAKE ARGUMENTS NOW THAT I BELIEVE ARE NECESSARY FOR ZEALOUS ADVOCACY, BUT IF ANYTHING I SAY COMES ACROSS AS OVERWROUGHT OR OFFENSIVE I HOPE THE COURT WILL BE PATIENT.

YOUR HONOR, WE ARE AWARE THAT THIS COURT WOULD HAVE GRANTED THE UNSUPERVISED ON-GROUNDS PASS IN A CASE LIKE THIS IF ALL PARTIES HAD BEEN IN AGREEMENT. THAT SUGGESTS THAT ANY PERSON WHO DIDN’T WANT MR. SAWICKI TO PROGRESS TOWARD RELEASE, FOR ANY REASON, HAD AN IMPLIED EFFECTIVE VETO.

BUT LONG SETTLED LAW SAYS THAT THE STATE CAN ONLY HOLD SOMEONE INVOLUNTARILY IN A PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTION IF, AND AS LONG AS, THAT PERSON IS DANGEROUS TO HIM OR HERSELF OR OTHERS DUE TO MENTAL ILLNESS. MR. SAWICKI IS ACKNOWLEDGED BY EVERY EXPERT AND EVERY CLINICIAN WHO HAS TESTIFIED IN THIS MATTER, TO NO LONGER BE MENTALLY ILL AND DANGEROUS. HIS SCHIZOPHRENIA IS IN FULL REMISSION, HE’S SHOWN NO SYMPTOMS OF PSYCHOSIS FOR MANY YEARS. IN OTHER WORDS, HIS TREATMENT HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL, IT’S OVER, AND IT’S TIME TO RELEASE HIM. THAT IS THE ONLY REASONABLE CONCLUSION FROM THE EVIDENCE, AND IT’S THE ONLY CONSTITUTIONAL APPLICATION OF THE LAW, UNDER THE PRECEDENT OF FOUCHA V. LOUISIANA, 504 U.S. 71 (U.S. SUPREME COURT, 1992).

NOW THE STATE MAY SAY WE DIDN’T PROVE THAT MR. SAWICKI IS NOT MENTALLY ILL AND DANGEROUS BY CLEAR AND CONVINCING EVIDENCE. THEY WOULD BE TECHNICALLY CORRECT TO SAY THAT, BUT OF COURSE NO ONE CAN EVER PROVE THEY ARE NOT MENTALLY ILL. THAT’S A NEGATIVE AVERMENT THAT ISN’T SUSCEPTIBLE TO CLEAR AND CONVINCING PROOF. I CAN’T PROVE I’M NOT MENTALLY ILL. YOU CAN’T PROVE YOU’RE NOT, MS. BOWDEN CAN’T PROVE SHE’S NOT.

OF COURSE, YOU AND I AND MS. BOWDEN ARE IN A DIFFERENT SITUATION THAN MR. SAWICKI BECAUSE WE NEVER KILLED ANYBODY AND HE DID.

NEVERTHELESS, MR. SAWICKI WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY BY REASON OF INSANITY, SO HE CANNOT BE PUNISHED. HE CAN ONLY BE TREATED IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT, THAT’S THE STATE’S ONLY LEGITIMATE INTEREST AND ITS ONLY LEGITIMATE ROLE NOW. AND WHAT IF THERE’S NOTHING TO TREAT, WITH HIS SCHIZOPHRENIA IN REMISSION? “IN REMISSION”, BY THE WAY, IS COMPATIBLE WITH NO LONGER MENTALLY ILL, PURSUANT TO A RECENT FIRST DISTRICT APPELLATE COURT DECISION IN PEOPLE V. GUNDERSON, IN WHICH THAT COURT CITED LEVINE V. TORVIK, 986 F.2D 1506 (6TH CIR. 1993), OVERRULED IN PART ON OTHER GROUNDS BY THOMPSON V. KEOHANE, 516 U.S. 99 (1995).

IF THERE’S NOTHING TO TREAT, WHY WOULD ANYONE STILL WANT TO KEEP MR. SAWICKI AT ELGIN MENTAL HEALTH CENTER FOR $800/DAY ON THE TAXPAYER? THAT IS A REALLY GOOD QUESTION. JAMES PATRICK CORCORAN TESTIFIED THAT MR. SAWICKI IS ONE OF THE TWELVE MOST DIFFICULT PATIENTS IN THE FACILITY, AND ONE REASON WHY GOOD M.D. PSYCHIATRISTS CANNOT EVEN BE RECRUITED FOR THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR JOB. SO HOW IS HE SO DIFFICULT, DESPITE BEING AN APPARENT TREATMENT SUCCESS? WELL… I SUGGEST THAT HE’S “DIFFICULT” PRECISELY BECAUSE HE HAS RECOVERED SO FULLY… WITHOUT PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS. THAT MAKES HIM A SORT OF DISSIDENT, AND A THREAT TO THE ORTHODOX CULT WHEREIN EVERYBODY MUST TAKE DRUGS WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT, AND EVERYBODY MUST BELIEVE IN MENTAL ILLNESS THE EXACT SAME WAY.

DR CORCORAN, AND MAYBE A HANDFUL OF OTHERS AT ELGIN, WOULD PUNISH MR. SAWICKI FOR BEING SUCCESSFUL. AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY TRYING TO RECRUIT THIS COURT TO HELP PUNISH MR. SAWICKI. BUT IN DOING THIS, THEY MAKE MISTAKES AND THEY COMMIT FRAUD UPON THE COURT.

I CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO A RECENT COURT REPORT AND COVER LETTER, DATED AUGUST, 2017. THIS IS AN OFFICIAL DOCUMENT, SUBMITTED AS EVIDENCE AND THEREFORE AS IF SWORN UNDER PENALTIES OF PERJURY. THE FINAL SENTENCE IN THIS REPORT STATES THAT A HEARING IS SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 29TH, 2017. THE TROUBLE IS, ALTHOUGH WE DID HAVE A HEARING ON THAT DATE, IT WASN’T SCHEDULED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 15TH. SO HOW EXACTLY COULD A COURT REPORT DATED AUGUST INCLUDE THAT INFORMATION, WHICH DIDN’T EXIST AT THE TIME THE WRITERS SWORE THEY WROTE IT? I POINTED THIS OUT TO VICKY INGRAM MYSELF, ABOUT A WEEK AGO. I BELIEVE THE OCTOBER REPORT THAT MS. BOWDEN ENTERED TODAY WAS SURPRISINGLY PROMPT, COMING ON THE SECOND DAY OF THE MONTH. YOUR HONOR MIGHT REALISE WHETHER THIS IS COMMON OR RARE, OR PERHAPS UNPRECEDENTED. IF THEY ARE SO CARELESS AS TO PUT A COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY UNTRUTH IN WRITING AND THEN HAVE TO SCRAMBLE WITH A NEW REPORT TO COVER THAT PROBLEM, THEN SHOULDN’T WE ASK WHAT ELSE MIGHT THEY BE UNTRUTHFUL ABOUT?

WE SUGGEST AT LEAST ONE OTHER THING…. THEY ARE UNTRUTHFUL ABOUT THE REASON THEY PUT MR. SAWICKI’S PETITION FOR PRIVILEGES ON HOLD. IT DOESN’T SEEM TO MAKE SENSE. THERE WAS NO EXISTING RULE ABOUT TURNING OVER ALL PASSWORDS, EVEN PASSWORDS TO FINANCIAL ACCOUNTS, WHEN MR. SAWICKI WAS USING THE COMPUTERS IN THE LIBRARY FOR RESEARCH. THE RULE HE IS ACCUSED OF BREAKING WAS REWORDED OPPORTUNISTICALLY AFTER THE ACCUSATION, AND THE DATE WAS CHANGED, JUST LIKE THE SO-CALLED “AUGUST, 2017” COURT REPORT. IT CAN REASONABLY BE ASKED, WHY WOULD THEY GO TO THE TROUBLE TO DO THIS?

PART OF THE ANSWER IS, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING THAT COULD BE EVEN TANGENTIALLY RELATED TO COMPUTERS OR DIGITAL INFORMATION IS AN EXTREMELY HOT SUBJECT RIGHT NOW AT ELGIN MENTAL HELTH CENTER. THEY ARE CONFISCATING EVERYONE’S COMPUTERS, EVERYONE’S DIGITAL MEDIA AND EVERY CONCEIVABLE STORAGE DEVICE, BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID CERTAIN EVIDENCE WILL GET OUT – EVIDENCE CURRENTLY BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE ILLINOIS STATE POLICE, OF SYSTEMATIC SEXUAL ABUSE OF PATIENTS BY STAFF. IT MAY BE RECALLED THAT I QUESTIONED FRIDA DUNPHEY ABOUT WHETHER SHE WAS AWARE THAT IF ANY SEXUAL CONTACT OCCURS BETWEEN A FEMALE STAFF MEMBER AND A MALE PATIENT, IT IS THE FEMALE STAFF MEMBER WHO GETS PROSECUTED FOR A FELONY CHARGE. MS. DUNPHEY ANSWERED MY QUESTION INSTANTLY, BEFORE THE STATE COULD EVEN OBJECT. OF COURSE SHE WAS AWARE! SHE HAS PROBABLY SEEN THE EVIDENCE HERSELF OF CERTAIN INCIDENTS … EVIDENCE THAT THE MEDIA AND THE PUBLIC WILL CERTAINLY INTERPRET TO SHOW THAT THIS INSTITUTION, THE OLDEST AND MOST WORLD RENOWNED STATE PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL IN ILLINOIS, IS IN REALITY A SLAVE PLANTATION OPERATED FOR THE CORRUPT PERSONAL BENEFITS OF STAFF.

BUT THAT’S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CASE, WHICH ONLY TOUCHES ON THIS ONE BY ACCIDENT. IN FACT, MY CLIENT HAS STRONGLY URGED ME NOT TO MENTION IT AT ALL. SO LET ME JUST QUICKLY OUTLINE WHAT THIS CASE IS ABOUT AND WHAT THE SEVERAL RECENT HEARINGS HAVE ESTABLISHED, TO MAKE THE CORRECT PERSPECTIVE EXPLICIT ON THE RECORD.

MR. SAWICKI WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY OF MURDER BY REASON OF INSANITY BY THIS COURT IN 2003, AND ADMITTED TO THE FORENSIC TREATMENT PROGRAM AT ELGIN WITH A THIEM DATE OF 2058. BASICALLY, THE COURT RULED THAT HE WAS NOT CULPABLE FOR SHOOTING HIS FORMER SUPERVISOR DEAD, BECAUSE HIS MENTAL ILLNESS MADE HIM DO IT. THUS, THE ONLY JUST THING TO DO WITH HIM WAS TREAT HIS MENTAL ILLNESS. THE COURT RIGHTFULLY LEFT IT TO THE MENTAL HEALTH EXPERTS AT ELGIN TO DECIDE EXACTLY HOW HIS MENTAL ILLNESS MIGHT BEST BE TREATED, AND I HAVE HEARD THIS COURT SAY ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS THAT IT IS EXTREMELY RELUCTANT TO SECOND-GUESS THE EXPERTISE OF THE DOCTORS.

AFTER FOURTEEN YEARS, THE MENTAL HEALTH EXPERTS AND THE DOCTORS  DECIDED THAT THE BEST TREATMENT PROGRAM SHOULD INCLUDE UNSUPERVISED ON-GROUNDS PASS PRIVILEGES, AND THEY PETITIONED THE COURT FOR THAT. THE COURT ORDERED A SEPARATE EVALUATION FROM THE TENTH FLOOR, AND THOSE MENTAL HEALTH EXPERTS ALSO DECIDED THAT THE BEST TREATMENT PROGRAM SHOULD INCLUDE UNSUPERVISED ON-GROUNDS PASS PRIVILEGES. IF WE HAD GOTTEN TO A HEARING QUICKLY ENOUGH, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN AGREED ORDER.

THEN CAME THE UNFORTUNATE ALLEGATION WHICH WE HAVE LITIGATED THROUGH FOUR DAYS OF HEARINGS AND VARIOUS WITNESSES. MR. SAWICKI WAS SAID TO HAVE MISUSED HIS INTERNET ACCESS VIA THE DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAM TO TRADE SECURITIES ON-LINE. THE APPLICATION FOR THE PASS PRIVILEGE WAS SUPPOSEDLY PUT ON HOLD DURING AN INVESTIGATION INTO THIS. THE INVESTIGATION CONSISTED OF EXPERTS IN SPRINGFIELD WHO CHECKED AND CATALOGUED ALL THE WEB PAGES MR. SAWICKI HAD VISITED ON LINE. A LOCAL TECH GUY AT ELGIN THEN REVIEWED THAT CATALOGUE FROM SPRINGFIELD, AND SUMMARIZED IT. SEVERAL INDIVIDUALS TESTIFIED ABOUT THIS EVIDENCE. IN THE END, EVERY WITNESS INVOLVED IN THE ALLEGATION AND THE SUBSEQUENT INVESTIGATION TESTIFIED THAT THEY HAD NO INFORMATION TO SUBSTANTIATE THE ALLEGATION. NOBODY WAS EVEN WILLING TO ADMIT THAT THE ALLEGATION HAD EVER COME FROM THEM TO BEGIN WITH. WE ALSO PRESENTED AN EXPERT WHO TESTIFIED THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN POINTLESS AND TOTALLY IMPRACTICABLE FOR MR. SAWICKI TO TRADE ON LINE DURING HIS DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAM COMPUTER TIME. THE BOTTOM LINE IS, MR. SAWICKI DID NOT ABUSE HIS DISTANCE LEARNING COMPUTER TIME TO TRADE ON LINE, AFTER ALL.

SO, WITH THE ORIGINAL ALLEGATION PROVEN FALSE, THE REASON THE PASS REQUEST HAD BEEN PUT ON HOLD HAD TO BE CHANGED, OR ACTUALLY, FALSIFIED AFTER THE FACT. IT BECAME A SLIGHTLY VAGUE ALLEGATION THAT SOME RULE OR RULES WERE VIOLATED. THEN DR. CORCORAN ALSO GRATUITOUSLY  SUGGESTED THAT MR. SAWICKI MIGHT BE ONE OF THE TWELVE MOST DIFFICULT PATIENTS AT ELGIN, WITHOUT SAYING WHY. MAYBE ITS BECAUSE HE IS A CLEAR EXAMPLE OF SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T NEED DRUGS, OR MAYBE ITS EVEN BECAUSE HE HAS ME AS HIS LEGAL COUNSEL. NEITHER OF THOSE ARE REASONS TO PUT HIS PASS ON HOLD. THEY WANTED TO PUT HIS PASS ON HOLD, SUPPOSEDLY, BECAUSE OF AN ACCUSATION WHICH CLEARLY WAS UNTRUE. MR. SAWICKI USED HIS COMPUTER ACCESS FOR EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO USE IT FOR: STUDYING MATERIAL RELEVANT TO THE ON-LINE COURSES HE WAS ENROLLED IN.

SO WE ASK THE COURT TO GRANT THE PETITION FOR PASSES. IN FACT, WE ASK THE COURT TO DISCHARGE MR. SAWICKI FROM DHS CUSTODY, BECAUSE THE EVIDENCE SHOWS HE IS NO LONGER MENTALLY ILL, AND SO HE CAN’T BE DANGEROUS TO HIMSELF OR OTHERS DUE TO HIS NO LONGER EXISTING MENTAL ILLNESS, AND SO THE STATE HAS NO FURTHER RIGHT TO DENY HIM HIS LIBERTY AND TRUMP UP ALLEGATIONS AGAINST HIM. ILLINOIS’ STATUTE REQUIRING THAT AN NGRI COMMITTEE MUST PROVE, MANY YEARS AFTER HE WAS FOUND NGRI, BY AN ELEVATED STANDARD, THAT HE IS NO LONGER MENTALLY ILL IS IN VIOLATION OF THE FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT DUE PROCESS CLAUSE. THERE IS NO POSSIBLE PROCESS TO PROVE THE NON EXISTENCE OR AN ABSENCE OF MENTAL ILLNESS.

IT’S TIME THAT WE BEGIN TO HONESTLY CONFRONT THE BRUTAL FACT: THIS SYSTEM OF SO-CALLED FORENSIC MENTAL HEALTH THAT WE ARE WORKING FOR IS UNJUST, INCOMPETENT AND A WASTE OF OUR TIME AND MONEY.

Refinement of American Slavery, Part 3: Transcript of a future deposition

(This deposition has not occurred yet. But it probably will.)

Plaintiff's counsel: Christy, you sent Ben an email on October 3, 2016, at 10:37. Here's a copy of that email.... As highlighted in the second paragraph you wrote, "I think of our time today. I think about top on, top off...snicker." Can you please explain what that means?

Defendant: I don't recall.

Plaintiff' s counsel: On November 17, 2016, at 15:30 you sent Ben an email. Here's a copy. As highlighted, it starts out, "Oh my gosh, what a day! I don't know what to say now that I'm here writing this. I wonder how you are. I hope the whole situation didn't lessen your enjoyment because I wanted to give you pleasure. It's amazing to me how close it makes me feel to you and I will miss it in a way. But what I won't miss is doing it in front of a window and the fear of being caught. That and the throwing up...lol. So no one suspected a thing and I had a story just in case...I was going to say I was getting stuff out of my fridge and I dropped my yogurt and it splattered all over me." Can you please explain what had occurrred that you were afraid someone would be suspicious about, and why exactly the story of yogurt splattering would have served as an explanation?

Defendant: I don't recall.

Plaintiff's counsel: Christy, you sent Ben an email on October 25, 2016 at 10:02. Here's a copy. As highlighted, a portion toward the end of that email reads, "Now I'm in the bathtub thinking of you touching me all over. We'd be wet and our skin would be glistening and our hands would be sliding all over each other. We'd be kissing like we never kissed before, from all vantage points and then your mouth would be on my neck. You'd move down to my breasts with your lips and your hands. One hand would slip downward between my legs making me moan. Our kissing would get hot no our breath come faster. I'd touch you and I'd say, now, do it now. Then you'd slide into me and you'd move slowly at first and then faster. The friction and electricity making us burn like stars. We'd look into each other's eyes and profess our undeniable love, our bodies moving perfectly together as if we were made to fit together. Then we'd dry each other off and move to the bed where you'd pull me on top of you, my hips moving until we both came in a crashing crescendo, crying out each other's names. We'd lay in each other's arms after our vigorous love making, caressing each other. My body fitting into yours, I'd feel safe against your chest in your strong muscled arms listening to your heart beat and the way your voice sounds through the walls of your chest." My question is, did Ben ever tell you when you counseled him as his social worker that he liked reading this kind of detailed romantic fantasy? Also, did Ben ever tell you he loved you? Did he ever respond to this kind of fantasy?

Defendant: I'm sorry, I just don't recall.

Plaintiff's counsel: You realize of course, that you're under oath, right?

Defendant: Yes...

Plaintiff's counsel: And you are stating, under penalties of perjury, that you don't recall the information in order to answer these questions?

Defendant: I don't recall.
