Lynching is still legal, but until recently one had to become a police officer to enjoy that sport. In 2013, that Changed. Private citizens can now kill black people and say they did the murder because they felt threatened. This started after the Zimmerman verdict, and numerous blacks have been murdered by Caucasians who are not in law enforcement since the verdict was handed down. The latest such killing may have been of a mailman who was delivering mail after dark in the Washington, D.C. area. a young lady, 19, was murdered in Michigan when she went on a Caucasian man's porch. A football player was killed by police when he knocked on a white woman's door and frightened her. He wanted to use the phone after enduring a car wreck. A Florida man was also shot by a Caucasian man who saw him running exposed down the street (his clothes had been stolen).
Since there is an attempt in the 21st century to hide racism while continuing to discriminate against blacks, independent oversight is crucial regarding new mental health laws and facilities that deliver psychiatric treatment. People labeled as being mentally ill in North Carolina will no longer be taken to public hospital emergency rooms if they are said to have a psychiatric crisis. Instead, they will be taken directly to a local for-profit specialty psych hospital. This is acceptable as long as it does not override the citizens' right to trial by jury for whatever offenses they may be accused of doing. See the NY Times article about this topic at at this url:
Medicaid was removed for psychiatric inpatient treatment from public hospitals in the 1960s in order to start America's private prison system by overcrowding the nation's public prisons and jails with mentally challenged people. Now Medicaid for mentally ill inpatients is back, but only for specific facilities. Every attempt must be made to see that abuses of citizens' rights do not happen in the private psych hospitals that receive Medicaid funds. Below are five examples of abuses of power involving the mental health care system.
1) Currently in Pennsylvania, Florence Elizabeth Mason, a black woman, is being detained in jail (or a mental hospital) on allegations of being mentally ill after winning a Court Order allowing her to continue her pro se lawsuits against parties that she claimed (1) wrongly evicted her and her children from a home and (2) subjected her children to police violence by the law officers who evicted them while Mason was not home. Regarding Civil Action No. 12cv01619 in USDC, Western Dist. of PA, the Order reads thusly:
AND NOW, this 13th day of September, 2013, upon consideration of Plaintiff Florence Elizabeth Mason's motion to proceed in forma pauperis and her pro se complaint, it is ORDERED that: 1. Plaintiff Florence Elizabeth Mason is GRANTED leave to proceed in forma pauperis.
The Court Order set forth specific due dates for plaintiff to make submissions to the court, etc. After receiving the Court Order, Mason was arrested and given a psychological evaluation, which she passed. The judge then ordered a second team to administer a psychological evaluation days later around 10:30pm. The psych team awakened Mason and demanded a second evaluation after bed time. This probably caused the inmate, who had been sleeping, to feel disoriented and angry, because Mason knew she had already passed the evaluation once. This time, Mason was said to have failed the evaluation and is therefore eligible for commitment to a mental hospital, or she could already be in a prison psych ward. Mason feels this was done to interfere with her lawsuits.
The legal system can simply arrest ANYONE, INCLUDING YOU, and deliver individuals into a private psychiatric hospital on the supposition that they are psychotic. More information will be provided about Mason in "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill blog" by January 7, 2014, at http://DogJusticeforMentallyIll.blogspot.com
2) Americans must not forget news stories reporting "Former Marine was Indefinitely Detained in a Psychiatric Ward Over 9/11 Facebook Posts."
3) A young black man is indefinitely detained in a Pennsylvania prison today where he has been denied a trial for 4.5 years. Every time Terrell Scott's case should go to trial, either his attorney asks for a continuance or his prosecutor apparently files a false statement with the court claiming that Scott is not available because he is in a psychiatric hospital. Meanwhile, Scott's attorney allegedly tries to get the innocent young man to accept plea deals. In most states, if not all of them, defense attorneys cannot be sued for malpractice if the defendant accepts a plea deal.
Scott was arrested for crimes that never happened on the word of a single Caucasian woman who has no credibility. His case demonstrates how mental hospitals can be misused in a system where there is poor oversight. The prosecutor falsely asserts on court records that Scott is in Norristown State Hospital when he is in fact in prison year after year awaiting the opportunity to prove his innocence, and his mother visits him there every Friday. A simple phone call to Norristown by the court would have proved that Scott was not a patient there there. See the data at this url

Question: Is it legal for the District Attorney to continuously lie and say Terrell Scott is in a mental hospital in order to hold the youth in indefinite detention in prison without trial? He feels that he was tricked into signing away his right to a speedy trial by a treacherous defense attorney, who also prevents trial by filing for continuances. Is it legal for the defense attorney and D.A. to take turns refusing trial for Terrell Scott, a Pennsylvania inmate? See proof on the Court Docket
