At Tuesday’s Board of Supes meeting the Humboldt County boring Supes will give their subservient nod to revoking the probation department’s performing of “mental health” services. Of course they are not doing this act because they want to, they're doing it because a higher legislature saw the stupidity of allowing probation officers to be simultaneously mental health case managers.

Although this is one of those “one step forwards” in the “one step forward two steps back dance,” separating those that are supposed to heal from those who punish is a good move. Unfortunately the cops and mental health are starting to forge bigger and more oppressive Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) to terrorize the mentally ill.

Soon the mental health will have their Mobile Drugging Unit (MDU) stocked with a couple of cops and a goonish, Haldol syringe packing mental health orderly. They will be able to declare anyone they choose “mentally ill,” and shoot them full of Haldol on the spot. Anybody, anywhere, for any reason can be doped and then brought before a Judge who will sentence them to a life of highly toxic nut-pills. It doesn’t matter how “sane” you were before, because the Judge only believes you're sane now because you're on anti-psychotics.

We must insist that the cops leave doctoring to the doctors. Law enforcers are not a very smart or compassionate way to help the mentally broken. Law enforcers are robotic mercenaries. They enforce laws designed to prevent the wealthy and ruling class from being “bothered.” That doesn’t bode well for those who truly need medical help.

Secondly we must insist that if the psychiatrists are going to force people to take anti-psychotics then we need professionals in place to get these people “off their meds” safely.
