LAWSUIT OVER CHEMICAL STRAIGHT JACKETS USED ON MISSOURI FOSTER CHILDREN

 

A federal judge has ruled that the court case filed on behalf of Missouri Foster children for mass drugging with mind altering psychiatric drugs will proceed! The other two groups in America drugged to a similar extent with mind altering drugs are the military and the elderly. (Prisoners are basically in the same category as well but have more say over wether or not they are forced to take the drugs.) And in each of these groups those being harmed by these drugs have little to no say in taking the drugs which are basically being forced upon them. Trial is scheduled for Jan. 14, 2019.

“There are clearly plausible allegations that (the Missouri officials) … actually knew of the serious risk of harm,” Laughrey wrote. “Yet they have not adopted any systematic administrative review because (Missouri) can’t find the medical records of the children. But the absence of the medical records itself creates an unreasonable risk of harm and the Defendants are aware of that risk as well.”

The lawsuit claims psychotropic drugs are often prescribed as “chemical straight-jackets” for some of Missouri’s 13,000 foster care children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or conduct disorder, even though there are few or no federally approved uses for the drugs among children. The plaintiffs also contend little research has been done on how the drugs affect children’s brains and the drugs could cause dangerous side effects, such as suicidal thoughts.”

This is wonderful news that legal action is being taken in behalf of the children! It is long overdue! What has been done to children in this situation four decades is absolutely criminal. The people behind this in many of these cases are literally guilty of murder. Such was the case of little 6 year old Gabriel Myers in Florida who impulsively hung himself under the influence of these drugs. So strong were the adverse reactions he was having to the drugs that he had been switch to a new home after suffering the side effect of homicidal ideation focused on a two year old in the home just two weeks before he suffered the side effect of suicidal ideation which took his life. So while this lawsuit is a big step in the right direction it does not go quite far enough to obtain Justice for these children.
