Moderator note: An excerpt from the link so you can decide whether it is something you wish to click:



Banker scoundrels aren’t the only big shots whose careers continue to ascend following reprehensible conduct. The following is a career update for some of the members of the “Psychiatry Hall of Shame,” including the group excoriated in the 2008 Congressional investigations, and another psychiatrist who conducted studies aimed at inducing psychosis—experiments that appeared to run counter to the Nuremberg Code of research ethics.

Thank you for the link.  Some of the names in the article have been front in center for years now as bad actors.  I am not sure how long you have been looking into such things but if you search the names here at SA a lot of dirt should show up if the pages have not been deleted. 

Justice has died a slow and agonizing death... as we watch on.  It seems to me these people have a better understanding of the systems they work in and how the real world works as they know they have 20 30 50 maybe a hundred years before anything is ever done to stop them.... or maybe the real timeline is never. 

I have been reading such things a long long time and there was a time when I would pull my reserves to focus on some issue or another...some article that appeared it had uncovered more than any reasonable could tolerate ...focusing my low reserves to bring awareness to such corruption now seems to be a waste of time.  I wonder if reporters and others who work tirelessly to put forth the truth get as jaded as me.  If things are going to change it will take more than we have done so far... and I can't imagine what that would be. 


For every person like you and I powerback who share the same views on these issues there are a 100 more who will show up at a doctors office today completely unaware. 


Those who lost their homes or their minds or both to these elitist leaders I am sure are too weak and busy trying to survive... to put up much of a fight. 


Still it is a bit interesting to see a note on the fragment of what use to be lives reported on in a distant sort of way... like a death certificate... the article is far removed from the actual suffering of the victims who lived it.  


one noted new bit on Lieberman in the response section is quite telling

"Else where in my blogpost is the letter he co-authored, meant to convince the UN’s special rapporteur on Torture, Argentinian attorney Juan Mendez, to adjust his definition of torture so it didn’t include practices typical of psychiatrists in US psychiatric wards"


I had to look if you do too here is the link



Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey. 


There is a crack in everything ..That's how the light gets in :)
