Behaviorial control is the real agenda behind Mental Health policies

peace be with you

I was reading this AP article and noticed when talking about suicide the Army refers to it as a “behavioral health care,” not a “mental health care” need as Humboldt County Mental Health department does. Isn’t that really a more accurate description of what’s going on in our Mental Health program. If you bother the rich or the authorities with your “behavior” your declared crazy. They dope millions of our children so their “behavior” doesn’t prevent others from, as Reagen called it, becoming “good citizens” through public schools. Why is everyone in jail, or homeless call “mentally ill?” Its not because there is a glut of jobes or no poverty leading to those situations, no its because the powers that be don’t like their behavior. What about people who are depressed? Is the moping around and not working really the thing they want to cure, and not the internal problems of the individual?

In a free country I am allowed to behave how ever I want as long as I don’t prevent others from doing the same. I personally believe if they would stop the war the suicide rate in the armed forces would fall. But it is hard for me to believe an army which exposes it troops to depleted uranium gives a shit about its soldiers. No, what it cares about is having a live body to help protect it’s newly stolen oil.

    7 Inglewood [COPS] are placed on leave

    Four days after an unarmed homeless man was killed by police, the chief places 7 officers on leave. City Council insists on better training.

    Four days after officers fatally shot a homeless man who had a toy gun in his waistband, Inglewood Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks broke her silence on the shooting Thursday, expressing concerns about the officers’ tactics and saying she had placed seven of them on administrative leave.

    “We could have done a better job tactically,” Seabrooks said of Sunday’s shooting in which officers fired as many as 47 rounds, killing the man and wounding a motorist as well as a dog. “I would have preferred that far fewer rounds would have been fired.”

    Seabrooks, who has been chief of the 190-officer department since last year, said the shooting was “very disturbing to the community, to the administration, the Police Department.”

    Her comments, in an interview with The Times, followed the release of a statement by the Inglewood City Council calling on Seabrooks to consider “a sweeping training program” for the entire department.

    Sunday’s shooting of Eddie Felix Franco, 56, was the department’s fourth fatal officer-involved shooting in as many months.

    Three of those slain by police were unarmed, causing concerns among residents and police activists that officers were using poor judgment when deciding to use deadly force.

    Seabrooks has also drawn criticism for failing to provide the public with details about the shooting after it occurred. She defended herself, saying she did not want to release information before it had been verified.

    In Franco’s case, police said officers opened fire when Franco appeared to reach for a gun in his waistband. The object was actually a realistic-looking toy gun, Seabrooks said. The toy had an orange tip, but it was concealed from the officers’ view, she added.

    Seabrooks said Franco appeared to be intoxicated and failed to follow officers’ orders to stand still and keep his hands up.

    A source close to the investigation told The Times that officials were looking at the possibility that the shooting was a case of “contagious fire” — a phenomenon in which an officer opens fire after he hears other officers firing and misinterprets the shots as being an attack.

    The source, who requested anonymity because the investigation was continuing, said officials were also trying to determine whether the officers were appropriately positioned to avoid firing on civilians.

    The shooting occurred near the busy intersection of East Hillcrest Boulevard and South Market Street, near a barbecue restaurant filled with patrons. One of the rounds grazed the head of a nearby motorist, and bullet marks could be seen on a wall near the shooting scene.

    The wounded dog belonged to another homeless man.

    Police officials have refused to identify the involved officers. Seabrooks said she planned to release their identities today.

    The City Council, which had also largely remained silent on the most recent incident, met behind closed doors for about 3 1/2 hours Thursday to discuss the shootings. When the council adjourned, it released a one-page statement saying the officers involved in the shooting would not return to the field until they had “received enhanced training.”

    “These recent and tragic officer-involved shootings are deeply disturbing to the City Council, as they are to all citizens,” the council said in its statement. “The City Council has directed Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks, the city administrator and the city attorney to take immediate steps to evaluate and implement, if necessary, a sweeping training program for officers department wide.”

    In an interview Thursday evening, Councilman Daniel Tabor said he and his colleagues decided they needed to be more involved in helping the chief run the department.

    “Before, we were delegating in communication with the chief; now we’re taking more direct action,” he said.

    Adrianne Sears, chairwoman of the citizens’ police oversight commission, said the council’s action was not enough.

    “Inglewood police officers are sworn to protect the residents of Inglewood. But given recent events, the community has come to question the department’s effectiveness,” she said. “This is a step in the right direction, but it’s a step. This certainly is not all that needs to be done.”

    In addition to Inglewood’s internal investigation, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Office of Independent Review and the district attorney’s office are investigating all four shootings in which Inglewood officers shot civilians in recent months:

    * On May 11, officers killed Michael Byoune, 19, and wounded two other men. Police reports said the officers mistakenly believed the men, who were unarmed, were firing at them. Seabrooks later called the shooting “a very tragic outcome.”

    * On July 1, Ruben Walton Ortega, a 23-year-old alleged gang member, was shot and killed by an Inglewood officer when police said he reached into his waistband as he ran from an officer. Police said at the time that the officer believed Ortega was armed. Seabrooks said he was not.

    * On July 21, police shot and killed Kevin Wicks, 38. Police said Wicks raised a gun at Officer Brian Ragan, who was responding to a report of a family disturbance at Wicks’ apartment complex. Ragan was one of two officers involved in the Byoune shooting.

    The string of shootings has led the state’s Legislative Black Caucus to ask state Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown to investigate the Inglewood Police Department.

    A spokesman for Brown’s office said the attorney general would wait until the district attorney and Office of Independent Review were finished with their probes before making a decision to investigate.

    Meanwhile Thursday, Franco’s older brother said in a telephone interview that he was in disbelief and angry about the shooting. “We lost track of him a year ago,” said Arthur Franco. “We were hoping he wasn’t lying dead in the desert.”

    Franco said his brother had been living on the streets since 1996. But before that he had been married and had worked for a telephone company for 12 years. He was a father of four children.

    He said his brother had struggled with alcoholism and drug use and was often in and out of rehab centers, as well as jails near the Coachella Valley. Franco said family members took turns trying to take care of him, but in the end, Eddie Franco liked staying outside.

    Family members said it wasn’t unusual for him to be away for a long period of time, but said this particular time it had been too long.

    “We were about to file a missing-persons report,” Franco said. “Then we learned about his death.”

    Franco said he had been watching the news about the Inglewood police shooting but didn’t think anything of it, other than the police had been involved in the fourth shooting. Tuesday afternoon he said a relative called him to say that his younger brother had been shot by police officers.

    “We understand he had a toy gun and police had to do what they had to do,” Franco said. “Still, he was drunk. How was he going to injure anybody?”

    If China is any model of where we’re headed (and it seems to be), soon this process will be called “ongoing education” or “re-education.” Anybody in the public education field knows that the goal of schooling is not to teach students but to “meet behavioral objectives.”

    That’s why 80% of us are considered “mentally ill,” because we keep adding 2 + 2 and getting 4 instead of the answer we’re taught to get.

    The linguistics and kaleidoscope of pills and treatments behind this whole mental health business is so smooth now. The true colors of “mental illness” were laid a lot more bare back in the day when minorities or uppity housewives would be brought in for “mental illness” and the good doctor would “destroy the diseased tissue” with an ice-pick (lobotomy), or electricity to the brain (EST). Of course, the “diseased tissue” was the frontal lobe – the part of the brain responsible for decision making and independent thought. The end result of this butchery was a passive, walking zombie of a victim who can’t take care of him- or her-self, who was then deemed “well.” You can’t be depressed, paranoid, or “crazy” if your brain doesn’t work. I suppose you can tell if someone is “well-adjusted” by the line of drool down their chin.

    Meanwhile, as our nation is swirling down the toilet, suicide keeps climbing up the list of top causes of death… Of course, it is chalked up to a “mental health epidemic.” Never mind that suicide almost always stems from a failure to cope with one’s current reality. It couldn’t possibly be that we’re getting fucked harder and harder every day, increasing the number who can’t cope with the abuse. It couldn’t be that our culture continues to flagrantly and systematically lower the value of human life and tell us how bad we are, how bad we’re screwing this place up. It’s bad enough when authorities did nothing to help those in desperate need. Now, authorities actively stand in the way to prevent people helping each other out.

    All the best, thanks for your work,

    Tad,

    Why don’t you actually learn about what depleted uranium is and more importantly what it is not. The Army never knowingly exposed its soldiers to DU. It tested DU extensively and the internet has been flooded with lies that began with Saddam Hussein’s wanting out from under the UN Sanctions that ended the Gulf War. Those lies fell on fertile scientifically illiterate peace activist ground and they have carpet bombed the net with them for years. Go to http://www.depletedcranium.com and start your education with watching the video of dinner being served on a DU-glazed bright orange Art Deco Fiesta Ware plate. Then come to DUStory and learn more.

    Peace be with you Roger

    I checked out your first sight and don’t even find if creditable. Here’s what we should do; give everyone elected to government DU plates, cups, and forks. Let them eat off of them and wait and see what happens. I heard this kind of “debunking the truth” before. I believe that same arguments were presented with agent orange too.

    I bet your one of them “clean coal” supporters too. And I bet you think nuclear power doesn’t create any pollution, there’s plenty of whales, the water is pure, and on and on and on. The problem is no matter how much you keep telling me “things is OK,” shit keeps getting worse. Maybe just once we should caution of the side of the Earth.

    I understand how billions are spent to distort the truth, but it doesn’t make the birth defects and cancers go away. The Army only wants soldiers, not veterans.

    Thanks for stopping the lie Tad. Humans have forgotten how to care for eachother. Our families have fallen apart and our sense of right and wrong is fading from sight and mind. We are ruled by a government that is arrogant, cruel and greedy, it will never meet the needs of the people because it does not consist of the people but rather is full of rich power mongers. The PEOPLE must care for themselves. It is imperative that we continue to educate eachother and the world about what is going on beyond the mask of civilization.
