More About Medicating Those “Pesky” Children…

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

I never have to wonder what would happen if the mental health system we have today was allowed to do whatever it wanted to in the already infiltrated fields of education and juvenile justice systems. We already know what creating disorders like ADHD does to our “special needs” kids and the Federal Monies that flow into our public education system. Considering themselves the experts in criminality, sought for expert opinions on human behavior in the courts, and having delivered into their care the miscreants of our society, we see the following trend. In the Miami Herald, reporter Fred Grimm investigates and reports the alarming amount of off-label use of anti-psychotics and anti-depressants on the children held by the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). This inflow of staggering costs for anti-psychotics are being prescribed by the psychiatrist already identified as being on the pharmaceutical companies “guest speakers” list and have received substantial personal income for supporting their use. Conflict of interest? Read Fred Grimm’s article and draw your own conclusions. Human Rights protect us from enslavement and the right to our own minds and thoughts without outside intervention in those processes. Drugs have never cured anyone of criminality. They are being used to sedate and manage active children with energy better directed in positive areas.
