Recent Supreme Court Ruling, and Prison Mind Control
The Supreme Court has recently ruled that a prisoner presumably
suffering from one of the mental problems currently labeled paranoid
schizophrenia can be forcibly drugged to make him sane enough to
execute. Although it is an important issue, I am not going to discuss
the forcible drugging of prisoners in this article -- at least not
directly. I am going to discuss the issues of mind control abuses,
and in particular prison experimentation.
I do not know if the prisoner in the recent court case really has a
mental illness or not. If he does, I do not know if it naturally
occurred or was triggered by torture he experienced in prison. A _New
York Times_ article excerpted at the end of this article notes that
the prisoner complained that "his prison cell was possessed by demons
and that a prison doctor had implanted a device in his ear." Whether
or not it is truly the case with this prisoner, it is certainly the
case that many other prisoners *have* been used as a pre-discredited,
contained supply of human experimental subjects.
The point is not that this prisoner was necessarily telling the truth
about the prison doctor implanting a device in his ear. The point is
that such a possibility is never given even a cursory consideration.
It *cannot* be, by the current system of lies in place in the US.
Mind control experimentation is known to have taken place, and the
technology is known to exist. But official American society almost
completely denies it or even ridicules the notion. The Supreme Court
bases its decisions on a fairy tale. The American empire has no
clothes whatsoever in this regard, but Americans tend not to listen to
or respond to even documented evidence of this.
The reason for this is that mind control experimentation *still* occurs
in the general population. More than that, mind control methods have
become the modern deniable political harassment and persecution method
in the US. The United States is a police state which controls the
media and other information sources so effectively that most Americans
are kept too ignorant to even realize it. Americans have very naive,
simplistic notions of censorship.
If you can freely post articles, does that mean you have free speech?
That depends, are you saying anything the secret "powers that be" want
suppressed? If not, then how would you really know? Are your
articles truly propagating widely? Is anyone listening, even if they
do propagate? If no one is listening they can simply ignore you. If
people are listening and taking you seriously, they'll first try a
propaganda ridicule campaign or other discrediting technique. If
their propaganda ridicule does not work, they may then come after you
in your home. Mind control operations, coupled with denials and the
abuse of psychiatry, have long been the perfect discrediting and
harassment technique in this regard. If the victims complain, they
are ridiculed and called crazy. They probably cannot just ignore such
torture inside their own homes and keep writing the same things as
they were before.
If the US would treat its "free" citizens this way, what would stop
them from doing anything at all to its prisoners? The US runs a
massive gulag system, incarcerating a percentage of its population
that should make it the shame of the world. Human rights groups
routinely denounce torture practices in American prisons, but the US
ignores such reports. Americans seem to be completely desensitized to
brutality and human rights abuses. As long as their TV does not
mention it too often and tells them how good and wonderful the US is,
they go happily on with their stinking hypocrisy and arrogance.
What follows are some general links related to prison abuses, with a
particular focus on mind control abuses against prisoners. A _NY
Times_ article about the recent court ruling is excerpted at the end.
In that article it states that the prisoner in question began having
mental problems in 1987. As the following quote indicates, there are
strong reasons to believe that prison experiments *were* being
conducted at that time.
Mind Control, By Harry V. Martin and David Caul
Despite the pledge by LEAA's director, Donald E. Santarelli, LEAA
ended up funding 537 research projects dealing with behavior
modification. There is strong evidence to indicate psychosurgery
was still being used in prisons in the 1980's. Immediately after
the funding announcement by LEAA, there were 50 psychosurgical
operations at Atmore State Prison in Alabama. The inmates became
virtual zombies. The operations, according to Dr. Swan of Fisk
University, were done on black prisoners who were considered
Such experiments on prisoners have a long history. The following
article describes, for example, CIA mind control experiments on
prisoners in Philadelphia. Various other tests were also conducted.
Retin-A's Wrinkled Past
In 1974, Senator Sam Ervin headed an investigation into federal
behavior modification experiments, particularly those in prisons. The
report actually discusses remote brain monitoring technology that
could be applied to prisoners, and could track, observe, and influence
them even after their so-called release. A footnote even mentions
computerized systems of this sort.
Extracts from Individual Rights and the Federal Role in Behavior
The US routinely ignores not only its own Bill of Rights, but also
international treaties on human rights. As the following article
states, "The United Nations Committee on Torture cited a variety of
ways in which the United States is violating the UN Convention Against
Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment
that was ratified in the US on October 21, 1994."
It's Official, It's Torture...So What!
by Corey Weinstein, M.D.
Former prisoner Brian Wronge was instructed by a federal judge to have
an alleged implant he received in prison removed for study. He could
find no surgeon willing to help him, and even the group Physicians for
Human Rights rebuffed him. According to the following article, many
surgeons cited fears of FBI retaliation.
IMPLANT VICTIM REFUSED HELP BY 'HUMANITARIAN' PHYSICIANS
The following article discusses the general situation where medical
professionals refuse to help mind control victims. Not only that,
many have actually been co-opted into the system of denial and
repression. Do no harm, indeed.
Won't medical professionals help mind control victims?
Finally, here is an article by David Fratus that appeared on Usenet in
1988. In it he describes his own allegations of mind control torture
and experimentation in Utah State Prison. I have not talked to him
personally, but his letter is quite eloquent and believable. He
describes quite well the attitude of his torturers, which is that he
can complain all he wants since no one will listen to him or believe
Remote Control Electronic Brain Punishment?
That is the true situation in the United States.
State Can Make Inmate Sane Enough to Execute
By ADAM LIPTAK
February 11, 2003
The federal appeals court in St. Louis ruled yesterday that
officials in Arkansas can force a prisoner on death row to take
antipsychotic medication to make him sane enough to
execute. Without the drugs, the prisoner, Charles Laverne
Singleton, could not be put to death under a United States
Supreme Court decision that prohibits the execution of the
insane. Yesterday's 6-to-5 decision is the first by a federal
appeals court to allow such an execution.
Mr. Singleton's mental health began to deteriorate in 1987. He
said he believed his prison cell was possessed by demons and that
a prison doctor had implanted a device in his ear.
Based on extensive medical evaluations describing Mr. Singleton
as psychotic, his lawyers have argued that he is mentally
incompetent and thus cannot be executed. Drugs alleviate his
symptoms, however, and Judges Wollman and Heaney differed
yesterday on whether they rendered Mr. Singleton sane or merely
masked his psychosis. The Supreme Court has held that prisoners
may be forced to take antipsychotic medications in some
situations. Prisoners who are forced to take medications to
ensure that they are competent to stand trial are entitled to a
hearing to consider the medical appropriateness of the treatment,
the risk the defendant poses to himself and others, and the
drug's effect on the defendant's appearance, testimony and
communications with his lawyer.
The Supreme Court has not ruled on whether prisoners may be
medicated in order to make them competent to be executed.
