    Darren Rainey Homicide Exposed by Harold and Windy Hempstead

    in Politics Progressive

    HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH, hosted by Mary Neal, email MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com
    Call-in number (347) 857-3293. December 21, 2014 Guest: Windy Hempstead

    The world was shocked to read about the wrongful death of Darren Rainey in Dade Correctional Institution in Florida. Rainey died two years ago when correctional officers dragged him into a shower and scaled him to death. Our guest, Windy Hemstead, received an urgent phone call about the murder from her brother, Harold, a prison orderly. She reported Rainey's murder to law enforcement. Two years later, Windy reported Rainey's death to the Miami Herald, because no corrective action was taken by the justice system, and she feared for her brother as a whistle blower.


    The Miami Herald published a series of articles about Rainey's death and other abuses to mentally ill inmates in Florida, including "Behind Bars, a Brutal and Unexplained Death" http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article1964620.htmlhttp://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article1964620.html


    George C. Mallinckrodt, who ws a mental health worker at the prison, published a book: "Getting Away with Murder"
    http://georgemallinckrodt.com/getting_away_with_murder.htm

    To date, Rainey's death has not be pronounced a homicide, according to Windy Hempstead. Justice is delayed.

    AOT: Timely, Appropriate Psychiatric Community Care Plus Subsistence

    in Politics Progressive

    Discuss the need for timely, appropriate treatment for serious mental illness (SMI) through AOT programs. Your input is invited at (347)857-3293. Most families experiencing mental health crisis agree that their mentally disabled loved ones would be able to avoid psychotic episodes if the patients were faithful to their mental health treatment program and took their meds. However, many Americans with SMI are untreated, some because they have no health insurance that covers mental disfunctions, and others because patients refuse to accept treatment and take prescribed meds.


    Assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs mandate continued psychiatric treatment and provide subsistence assistance (food and housing) for Americans with SMI. AOT programs reduce homelessness, arrests and incarceration, hospitalization, and deaths caused by the lack of treatment. That means less crime and safer communities, lower prison costs, and restoration to wholesome living for many sick people.


    We congratulate the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), which endorsed unanimously the “authorization, implementation, appropriate funding, and consistent use of assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) laws to ensure treatment in the least restrictive setting possible for individuals whose illness prevents them from otherwise accessing such care voluntarily.” The IACP represents more than 20,000 members in more than 100 countries (see more at the Treatment Advocacy Center website). Nobody knows the needs of people with SMI like their psychiatrists, their families and police. With few exceptions, they agree that AOT would make ours a safer and more humane society. Please call and give your opinions on air.

    Brenda Anderson, Prison Torture Victim

    in Politics Progressive

    Human Rights for Prisoners March, hosted by Mary Neal - Call (347)857-3293 to speak on air. Today's guest is Brenda Anderson, a woman who spent her young years in Texas correctional facilities after protecting herself against three men who tried to rob her after watching her cash a check. Brenda was openly lesbian at the time and feels that her prosecution for self-defense was based on her gay lifestyle rather than on her shooting one of the men. She was also outspoken for human rights of prisoners as an inmate. Brenda's horrific torture as a U.S. inmate was recounted in an article in "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog at http://dogjusticeformentallyill.blogspot.com/2014/10/aimi-vs-usa-b-anderson-claimant.html


    Brenda Anderson is one of the claimants in "AIMI vs. USA", which will present up to 100 cases of discrimination, brutality and wrongful deaths against mentally ill Americans in International Court in 2015.

    Bob Darby and Lynn Eagle Feather: Advocates for the Homeless

    in Politics Progressive

    BOB DARBY AND LYNN EAGLE FEATHER, ADVOCATES FOR THE HOMELESS MENTALLY ILL - Thursdays, 3pmEST ~ Please call to speak on air at (347) 857-3293 for all broadcasts at "Human Rights Demand." 


    Darby studied in psychology and theology in graduate school. Darby  has been an advocate for the homeless mentally ill for more than twenty years. He has a B.A. in psychology from Emory University. He is a former employee of Georgia Regional Hospital, Boston State Hospital, and New Hampshire's Hanover-Darthmouth Hospital. In 1994, he co-founded Atlanta Food Not Bombs. Lynn Eagle Feather is an elder in the Lakota Nation. She discusses homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction and its causes and effects among Native Americans and others. Eagle Feather has been a human rights advocate for over 10 years and was herself a homeless person at one point in her life.


    Use this link to contact your officials http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml . Darby and Eagle Feather explain that many poor people and those with serious mental illnesses and addictions are deliberately rendered homeless in the United States of America. Sick people are deprived of psychiatric and medical health care services that would help them avoid imprisonment and harm while our communities are less safe than they could be. This is unacceptable. Voters should petition elected officials to improve treatment and subsistence opportunities. Contact Mary Neal, station director, at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or call 678.531.0262.

    Forced Drugging - Is It Ever Justified (Part 2)

    in Politics Progressive

    Katherine Hine and guests from the anti-psychiatry community speak at 3 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, October 15, 2014, on the daytime call-in broadcast, "Human Rights Demand." Speakers and guests should call to speak on air at (347)857-3293 or listen by computer. Part I of this show broadcast on October 8, 2014, and is archived at the following link:
    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2014/10/08/forced-drugging--is-it-ever-justified


    Those who oppose forced drugging will speak from 3 p.m. until 4:15 p.m., after which time the show will be open for comments and questions from the audience until 5 p.m. You are invited to call and give opinions for or against AOT programs (subsistence assistance plus mandated psychiatric treatment), involuntary commitment in mental hospitals, incarceration of mentally ill Americans, and other matters regarding enforced psychiatric treatment and drugging. Is it ever justified?

    Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) members believe that AOT programs are warranted for many persons with severe mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, high levels of PTSD, particularly those who revolve in and out of jails and prisons, hospitals, and sick people who experience long-term homelessness.
