FROM COMPLIANCE TO ACTIVISM:
A Mother's Journey
by Rob Wipond
Through years of turmoil and confusion, Cindi Fisher’s enduring love for her involuntarily committed son gradually changed her from compliant mom to mental health civil rights activist. That’s when authorities banned her from even contacting her son. But could she be a bellwether of a coming nation-wide wave of protestors? Read more

  The Video is worth a thousand words, a thousand testimonies, and  One Life...                             Hector Ilias's Story
URGENT ALERT: TELL OHSU to give up the video!OHSU did produce the video and the video  indeed proved Hector is innocent!NOW OHSU must advocate to have the charges dropped/vacated!
 March 4, 2014 Update:  Hector was released from prison on February 7, 2014, on one of the snowiest days of the year. Yet I imagine the feeling of the cold snow washing over his face was magical, tasting like freedom! Now OHSU must use their influence to undue the wrong committed by their staff and SAVE HECTOR'S LIFEYou see, we believed that since he was freed that the deportation process had been stopped. Last week he received a letter that he is still scheduled for deportation for a crime he DID NOT commit.OHSU does not need to operate to save this life. They just need to do the right thing and use their influence to save the life they are responsible for endangering. Hector left Honduras with his family when he was only 2. This is his home country where his family and many friends are.  Honduras is experiencing major civil unrest. Hectors life would be endangered were he to be deported into a land where is now a strangerOHSU Must advocate strongly to have the charges DROPPED/VACATED IMMEDIATELY!!Jan. 24, 2014 UPdate: Once again, heart and hand together, the Village people Won!  OHSU produced a video! Only Hector's Mother was allowed to see it. Hector always proclaimed his innocence and the VIDEO IS worth a thousand OHSU's staff testimonies. He is innocent! OHSU must now see that JUSTICE is done.!The video is proof that their staff lied; his former attorney Britt lied; his current attorney failed to demand a retrial basd on this video. Actually this video was never mentioned in the court papers; the court trial in 2011 said they had a video of the testimony of staff and doctor witnesses. This video was of Hector in "real time" proving his innocence and exposing their lies. OHSU Administration must view both videos and determined who should be held accountable for sending a young innocent African American man to prison isolation for 3 years and who is now ready to be deported for a crime he did not commit. FREE HECTOR ILIASCall OHSU 503-494-7959 and tell them "strongly advocate for all charges to be dropped against HECTOR ILIAS(Il-ee-us)The VIDEO proves his innocence!

Update:12/2/2013   Jennifer has been released from Cypress Manor, but her life is still controlled by the state DDS. They  have kept her baby and allow only minimal supervised visits, and without ANY justification WILL NOT allow BABY Vaughan's grandmother, Susan, to even see him. Clearly this is a case of the state kidnapping a baby for profit. Baby Vaughan is kept in a daycare almost 30 hours a week, while grandmother and mother long to love, care and nurture him full time.
Update: 11/26/2013  Outrageous...Jennifer is only allowed 4 hour visits only twice a week
Cypress Manor  ignores resident's Bill of Rights!
When this journalist/advocate questioned why rights were being violated,TWICE the response was this resident is "owned by the state!"

and
Clark County Guardian  Ad  Litem  Lisa  Rasmussen
 
AS  THE  COURT 6  MONTH  PROTECTION  ORDER  severing her from her son !!!
Return soon for updates of her next steps and how YOU can take action!
Cindi Fisher, pictured here, and above advocating in front of Western State Hospital, is a mother and grandmother, who went on a 16 day Hunger Strike earlier this year  and with other MOMS walked 100 miles to Western State Hospital last year, to shine a light on Western States broken and cruel system and to protest the abuse of her son , Siddharta Fisher and other adult sons and daughters. In retaliation, July 10, 2013 she was taken to court and "found guilty" for exercising her first amendment right, which the accusers claimed was a form of abuse and caused harm to her son.
Through faith and nationwide , she defended herself pro-se against their lawyer , Rachel Brooks.  The requested- "up to 5 year" -vulnerable adult protection order was reduced to 6 months. However she is still outraged that exercising her first amendment right of free speech to advocate for her son's constitutional and ADA rights were used to punish her, and she is deeply grieved, and gravely concerned that she has been completely severed from with her son, who is now without the strong protection advocacy of his mother, until a 6 months January 3,  2014.
Return soon for updates of her next steps to rescind the entire order and how you CAN TAKE ACTION! or contact her at

Seattle's Trayvon Martin is still alive! You can Help,
FREE DOMINIQUE JAMERSON...
He was wearing a "Back Hoodie"
when
profiled by Seattle police!
He has been held without trial since January 2011
The DNA proved him innocent!
UPDATE March 4, 2014 Outrage!!!
Dominique has been returned to Western State hospital from the jail to the CRIMINAL SIDE of the Hospital!
Everyday by phone he begs his mother "get me out of here!


to be drugged once again out of his right mind at  a $600 dollar plus a day ticket.
Outrageously this young man has now earned his captors collectively well over a million dollars.
Questions to ask the  the Washington State Appealate project regarding DOMiniques' case coming soon!

UPDATE JANUARY 24, 2014:  OUTRAGEOUS !
Was it Retaliation
by Chief Prosecutor Daniel Satterberg's Office?
You Decide...
 
Our call ins made a difference. In Novemebr 2013, the hospital had finally informed Dominique he was going to be discharged in 30 days. This, after almost THREE YEARS of being persecuted for being African American and talking to himself on the streets of Seattle.The 30 day wait was because they had to give the pros attorney's office a 30 day window to decide if they wanted to now proceed with the charges, since he originally was committed to restore competency (for a crime he clearly did not commit they heavily drugged him for 12 months supposedly to try and restore competency and then they transferred him to the "civil side"because basically they claimed he was "too mentally ill" to restore competency)
His Mother shared how excited he was to Finally Be Going Home... He counted down the days... 30-29-28....5...4....3 WHAT HAPPENED! #? !# with only 3 days to go; Chief Pros Atty Daniel Satterberg's Office sent police to Dominiques' room; with NO Warning, handcuffed him and took him to jail...to be CHARGED AGAIN with the same crime he did NOT commit! AND they gave him a bail of ONE MILLION DOLLARS...interesting enough that is about what the hospital made for those 3years they stole of his life; the drugs may have stolen his future as well; most of the drugs they are forcing our African American Men and Women to  take have sterility as a side effect. Is  this a form of racial genocide via mental health treatment. Since his new incarceration, he has been to court 3 times and had it continued, because, it appeared nobody knew what the pros. atty wanted. WEll now it is clear...At his last court date Dominique was ONCE AGAIN DECLARED INCOMPETENT TO STAND TRIAL and is being drugged behind bars guarded by an outrageous MILLION DOLLAR BAIL devastating and destroying his precious young life! 
Watch the two videos below and
then call Chief Pros Atty Daniel SATterbergs' Office and tell him to 1.)drop the absurd, outrageous million Dollar bail; 2.) stop persecuting and Immediately Free Dominique Jamerson 206-553-0891

Urgent Alert for Dominique Jamerson

The New Jim Crow Part 2...  African American Men are
Denied their due process "Day in Court" to prove their innocence and thus/
by declaring them "incompetent to stand trial"/
hospital bars and chemical restraints are substituted for  bars/

 
**Video -Prof Amos Wilson
Discusses oppression and genocide of  our
YOUNG BLACK MEN
by medicalizing societal problems.
They are then forced by court order to take mind and body altering drugs that for many cause sterility, agitate one into violence and confusion, destroy one's ability to critically think, cause suicidal and homicidal urges. Although Dominique, Was NOT on any psychotic drugs and was only walking down the street; for those forced onto these drugs, the actions that are drug induced are criminalized!!! and the vicious competency restoration repeats itself  over and over again.  Yet any abrupt withdrawal from these dangerous psychotic drugs that are not carefully monitored can cause even worse inner terror and serious physical medical harm. (DO NOT encourage any loved one  or others to abruptly withdrawal from these dangerous drugs;)The UN has declared forced psychiatric treatment as torture, cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment...click here to read more and then return here to help save Dominique's life
 (some psychiatric drugs,  MAY indeed be needed short term, HOWEVER, solid research has proven, they are only effective for 15 to 20 % of the adult population in general and  --for others , long term use causes destruction to the mind and body and on the average a 25 year early death rate...)
  
And the hospital masters earn hundreds of thousands of dollars in one year alone/for one "patient." This hospital has earned almost $$ ONE HALF MILLION DOLLARS $$  for Dominique's crime of walking while Black and wearing a Black Hoodie..Each day they to imprison him behind hospital bars, they earn an additional $580 PLUS....
The New Jim Crow part two is this...
African American men are "forced to pop pills instead of pick cotton"!
(Although many, many others are caught in this web of mind and body control and destruction, one of  the main targets seem to be  African American Men...(see the book Targeting Children of Color, by Peter Breggin)
TAKE ACTION    
URGENT ALERT FOR DOMINIQUE JAMERSON AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS GREEN BOX)
(After reading this be sure and return to read next article below in the blue box "The Pathologizing of  African Americans by Psychiatry)
Trayvon Martin, a young African American Man wore a , and jeans,  and the person who took his life goes free.
Dominique Jamerson, 23, a young African American Man was walking the streets of Seattle, Washington in early 2012, wearing a black hoodie, , and back shoes. Dominique lost his freedom without his day in court to prove his innocence.
Dominique feels he was targeted by police for no other reason than walking while black... was it again the back hoodie?   He has not yet lost his life, but it is a slow and early death he is possibly facing.  The side effects of the drugs he has been court ordered to take are scientifically proven to cause 25 early death in  many of its long term users. Forced to take these drugs over a year, Dominique says both his mind and body are suffering serious side effects.
He lost his freedom  without his day in court to prove his innocence. He was picked up by police because they said he looked like the person they were looking for who committed a crime across town. He  was alleged to have  stabbed another man a dozen times a few hours earlier.
When Dominique was taken downtown to be interrogated; his back hoodie, black pants, and black shoes were taken by detectives for DNA testing. Dominique's mother says she was told by his defense attorney, his clothing came back negative for any signs that would implicate him in the crime. IN REALITY, AT THAT POINT,the pros. atty should have DROPPED THE CHARGES and set Dominique FREE.   18 months later,  Dominique is still locked behind hospital bars, begging to be set free or at the very least have his day in court, because he knows he will be found innocent. He is GRAVELY CONCERNED about the effect of the medication on his mind  and body and yet his plea is steadily being denied.
Update:Dominique lived almost 22 years of his life without psych medication(his father, now deceased, stopped the schools attempt early in Dominique's life after only 1 week on ritalin, and upon seeing the lethargy in his son, refused the schools coercion to continue drugging his son) During those 22 years he was never convicted of any crime.  
Finally AFTER many calls to Sen. Murray, the discharge process is being considered.  Now after 18 months of drugging with drugs KNOWN to cause aggression, inhibit impulse control, and create apathy,the hospital has DECLARED DOMINIQUE  GRAVELY ILL AND A DANGER TO OTHER AND ARE DEMANDING A CONDITIONAL RELEASE WHICH WILL MANDATE THAT DOMINIQUE CONTINUE BEING DRUGGED IN THE COMMUNITY OR FACE A RETURN FOR MORE FORCED COMMIMENT AND DRUGGING.  This whole abusive and unjust process as been declared by the U.N. in 2010 as CRUEL DEGRADING and INHUMANE treatment, a form of torture.
Western State  Hospital in Lakewood, WA earns approximately $580 a day PLUS doctor and prescription charges. So in one year Dominique has earned the hospital well over $250,000. It appears, each day of his loss of freedom, the hospital gains financially.
Is this the New Jim Crow part 2 that will make sure you don't get your day in court.
You see Dominique was yet another case that was "flipped" by Western State hospital in Washington. Flipped means, first he is  refused his day in court, because he is "declared" incompetent to stand trial by his own attorney; this means you are denied the right to GO TO TRIAL for your alleged crime -YOU GO TO THE HOSPITAL AND HAVE TO EARN BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS FOR UP TO 6  MONTHS, BEHIND LOCKED DOORS  WHILE YOU RECITE YOUR ALLEGED CRIME AND THE SENTENCING FOR IT...THEY SAY COMPETENCY RESTORATION IS  LEARNING HOW TO ASSIST YOUR ATTORNEY IN YOUR DEFENSE...
How much assistance does an attorney need to present DNA testing that will prove your innocence?
Then, after two or more six months periods of  their evaluation of  you that says they were unable to restore you to competency," then your diagnosis is "flipped" and now you are civilly committed as gravely disabled or a danger to others, for up to ANOTHER 6 MONTHS, and that can go on seemingly indefinitely.
A report to Washington State congress in 2009 says that Western State does this "flipping" significantly more than the other  hospitals its size. 
This also could account for why Washington's Eastern State Hospital keeps  only
21 % of its patience longer than 1 year, and Western State Hospital keeps 47% of its patience longer than 1 year !!   Can it be that Western State really has over twice as many "danger to others" patients than Eastern State. I believe Eastern State Hospital actually draws from a population that has a higher prison incarceration rate!
 Over 15 months later and DOMINQUE is  still  begging to have his day in court and the hospital is ticking off another $580/day...   ???
Is  popping pills the new form of picking cotton?
It is time to free Dominique Jamerson! 
Dominique talks to his mother often, and he has willingly allowed himself to be tape recorded by me during one of our phone calls. I did this because some drugs administered can disable one's ability to speak or think rationally over night, and it is a tool, to help prevent retaliation against Dominique, who is now a vulnerable adult in their care.
During this stressful forced detention and isolation from his family and community, Dominique has tried to keep his connection with the outside word through phone calls. There is little to do on the ward after the mandated classes end at 2:30. Dominique says the classes are of absolutely "no value or meaning.". He is very considerate and if others need to use the phone, he is willing to share the phone. However, most others have lost that outside connection to family and friends. Dominique has now been told he can no longer call as much as he has desired to do so. His level of frustration and powerlessness is growing.
Growing up Dominique may have had trouble in school expressing himself, and did not find a lot of success in school, and he will tell you that he talks to himself,  but  in my hour of taped conversation, and other conversations, he always answers clearly and stays very present whenever we are talking. He seems to be very aware of  his surroundings and  speaks clearly about the events of his  arrest, which he believes was racially profiled and about  acts that he sees are discriminatory where he is confined. It is not a crime to learn at different rates than others or talk to one's self, or to be Black. He  is very clear on what happened that day, and it seems that the DNA evidence would support his clarity and his  innocence.
According to another report, by a Washington State official, Washington State seems to have an unexplained increase in  referring people to competency restoration. 
URGENT ALERT
CALL, EMAIL Washington State Senator Murray 
Tell her
 1) FREE Dominique Jamerson, locked up in Western State hospital in Tacoma WA,
 and Investigate Why the charges were not simply dropped after the DNA Testing proved him innocent. Dominique Jamerson was NOT FREED nor did he ever got his day in court after the DNA Testing but  instead he was  declared incompetent to stand trial!
2) Investigate Washington State Courts and the increase in Competency Restoration Orders,
3) Investigate Western State Hospital's high percentage of "flips'  from incompetent to stand trial to "gravely disabled" or "a danger to others" and their 47% long term commitments, while their sister hospital, Eastern State Hospital only has a 21% long term commitment rate.
4) Investigate if  Washington State's increase in Competency restoration and their "flip" process targets and discriminates against African American men and women...

  NATIONAL EMPOWERMENT CENTER (NEC) Calls for
Peer-Delivered Community Services instead of more Forced Treatment
"The best means to help people recover from mental nealth issues is by funding more voluntary, community-based services delivered by people who have ourselves recovered: people who relate mutually or peers. Peers uniquely connect with the persons in distress in a non-stigmatizing, egalitarian manner because we have been through siimilar exoeruences. Peers operate respite centers, which are alternatives to more traumatic hospitalizations, and work as wellness coaches in health centers to help integrate mental health and medical care. Peers also teach the public how to help each other through emotional distress by a peer-developed program called emotional CPR (eCPR). Also peers are learning community-based, voluntary open Dialogue from Finland. Click here to view press release

Guardianship Hearing  Friday April 19, 2012 Clark County Courthouse 1:30
12th and Franklin  Vancouver, WA 
Update 5/2013: Thanks to all of you who showed up. There were at least 18 people at the court wearing the MOMS symbol around their neck...a heart, symbolizing "creating communities where the heart can heal."  Round 1 had both victories and challenges. The guardian chosen by GAL Lisa Rasmussen disqualified himself because I entered his citations into the court record.For round 2, I have the support of an amazing attorney who is guiding me. I am still fighting to be the guardian of my son. I will keep updating here.
Be sure and scroll way down to the breaking new video on risperdal, the very toxic drug they are injecting my son with, despite their horrendous side effects and the diseases this drug has induced in my son.The treatment team, especially social worker David Getty and G.A.L.Lisa Rasmussen have been thoroughly informed of the dangers of this drug and its extremely toxic effect on my son. This is one of the most expensive forms of the drug, and its cost is added on top of the $580/day the hospital charges medicare for this so-called treatment.

Picking Cotton... The New Jim Crow part 2
 Although the dragnet of incompetent to stand trial  effects people of all races and genders,
this forced lock-up, especially targets young African American men; and treatment is reminiscent of the slave days.  Western State has labeled many young African American Men incompetent to stand trial and locked some up for years, without ever getting their day in court. As property they make their master's profit, not by picking cotton, but by popping pills... confined by law, restrained by tranquilizers to the plantation. (coming soon, article on unexplained increase in Washington State's  "Incompetent to Stand Trial Rulings.")
Breaking New Video on Risperdal the most recommended
pill for popping / for profit and its devastating effects!
Horrendous side effects, including breast growth and need for masectomy by men and Multiple Lawsuits
Why has Siddharta Fisher not recovered from any of  his traumas reported in
WSH hospital records since 1995??? Could it be he has not been treated for them?
OVER ONE QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS for WRONG TREATMENT IN 2012
2013 dollar count as of May 5 ..$580/day x 125 days
Watch the above video...My son is one of those they talk about
1. given prescription off label at age 17
2. first prescription was over 1000%  above recomended dosage

 Washington sued in 2012 and won? Why are they still letting doctors prescribe this drug?
This forced treatment is reminiscent of the slave days...because Westrn State has been directly involved in labeling many young African American men incompetent to stand trial and locked them up for years.  Seems like instead of picking cotton for profit, they are forced to pop pills for profit, pills that harm the mind body and Spiritzz

FACT: The 3rd leading cause of death of young people age 15-24 is suicide! Many more attempt it and are hospitalized!
 
What is it about our society, our community, our families, that our Young People
are saying NO to with such  finality! Could it be
the village could give them a
vision worth living for?
                                     
 
 *****************
 
 
 FACT:  Psychiatric drugging of  preschool and elementary children to "fit in" our schools, our communities, and our homes has risen 35 fold in the last 20 years!"As of 2008, upwards of a million children in the United States—in many cases preschoolers—are on "mood-stabilizers" for bipolar disorder alone, even though the condition remains unrecognized in the rest of the world.
 
Is the natural wonder, curiosity, and desire to learn really broken in millions of  our preschool and school age children; and the antidote is drugs as strong and addictive as cocaine???(250 children a day are added to the social security disability roles.) or is it that the mentorship, and true education  are a function of the village

FACT: Military doctors are medicating 1 in 6 soldiers with psychotropic drugs.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Use of psychiatric drugs has spiked; concerns surface about suicide, and 
 
The war on terror proved to be a major deception of the worst kind...perhaps it was/is a war on us! Will 1/3 of these US Soldiers return home only to become the new generation of prison inmates, homeless, or death by suicide or homicide statistics ...NOT because they suffer from PTSD, but from the horrendous side-effects of homicide or  suicide thoughts and actions induced by psychiatric drugs? Not only are they given these drugs while fighting  on foreign soil, but they are often given them when they return home to deal with the nightmare war, waged in their own mind.They too need the Village to heal and keep from perishing .

I believe...
It takes a Village to raise a child.
Without a Village the children will perish ,
Without a (Village) Vision the people will perish!

Targeting Our Children:
           
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A FORM of SOCIAL CONTROL!
 
MOTHERS!
This is what we are up against!
(This is a quote from Dr. Peter Breggin's Website...)
The widespread diagnosing of children is a subtle form of social control that suppresses children rather than providing them with what they need to fulfill their basic needs in the home, school and family (and I would add, the community/village).
MOTHERS: A WARNING FROM DR. BREGGIN
"... the medical and scientific authorities, and the weight of the universities and government, wholly support this rampant abuse of children. From the systematic abuse of women, children and minorities throughout the ages to the institution of slavery and the Holocaust, those in authority have condoned and benefited from these abuses. Authority at the top of society always justifies these widespread abuses, otherwise the abuses would never get started, nor would they persist.
Reject the authorities. Rely on common sense, sound ethics and real science. Allow yourself to become empathic toward these abused children. Then become angry, energized, motivated and engaged. Educate yourself. My books and those of many others will introduce you to a new world of science, education and philosophy about childhood and children. Find your own way to protest and to make a difference. Join us at empathictherapy.com in our efforts to protect our nation's children from psychiatric abuse and to offer them genuine love, inspiration, service and education."
For more information about social control and youngsters see the Children's section under Special Topics and Children's section under Scientific Papers, as well as several of Dr. Breggin's books, especially
Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry
(1998).  Dr. Breggin's blogs often address current children's issues.

Dear Reader, the following is a quote from  Dr. Peter Breggin, the author of the book"The War Against Children of Color." Words in parenthesis are mine, Cindi Fisher
                    
 
A PERSONAL CONCLUSION
by Dr. Peter Breggin
I am white and Jewish. It feels like a special honor to work in close association with African Americans on behalf of human liberty and mutual respect. As I look back on the fight against the first and second violence initiatives,(these initiatives are actual government documents that focused on targeting Afrcan American children) it strikes me that the victories would not have been won without the vigorous participation of African Americans. Often the dominant white society seems indifferent to the various psychiatric abuses, whether they affected blacks or the entire society. For example, I had little success in opposing the return of lobotomy until its effects on the blacks aroused their concerns. Right now the drugging of children in general escalates in America, with millions of school-boys and girls on Ritalin and other psychiatric medications. Yet it is only among blacks that I have found any concerted ethical or spiritual outrage over the medical diagnosing and drugging of America's children. It is ironic indeed that the black community remains a bulwark of ethics, social conscience, and empathy for children within the very society that so oppresses it.
