What a terrible coincidence. It’s confirmed: Ray received one of his forced outpatient electroshocks on USA Tax Day, 15 April 2009. MindFreedom issued a list of organizations and individuals who get public funding, directly or indirectly, and who are somehow involved with Ray Sandford’s life. A few are helping Ray, but many are not. And some are profiting from his forced electroshock. Please browse Ray’s Web of Link$, spread the word, and speak out.

Taxpayer funds support a web of groups and individuals around Ray, directly and indirectly.

updated 27 April 2009

Rayis surrounded by an astounding network of more than two dozen agenciesand individuals who get thousands of taxpayer dollarsdirectly or indirectly.

MindFreedom has created an online “Web of Link$” around Ray. The public is encouraged to take nonviolent action to encourage this Web of Link$ to do more for Ray’s rights.

CLICK HERE to browse the “Web of Link$” around Ray:

Some are helping. Many are not.

Psychiatrists and social workers. Judges and counselors. Housing services and guardians. Advocates and attorneys.

All ought to defend Ray Sandford’s human right to say “no” to electroshock!

  • Only a very few on Ray’s Web of Link$ have expressed concern or taken anyaction for Ray’s campaign. These few should be thanked and encouraged todo more.
  • Several on the list are creating obstacles to Ray’s campaign.
  • Several directly profit from Ray’s expensive forced electroshock.
  • Many — including all of Ray’s elected officials — have stayed silent about the issue of forced electroshock.

You are encouraged to communicate in a civil way with Ray’s Web of Link$, and encourage support for his human rights.

Ray’s Web of Link$ has a lot of interesting information. If you find out more, let MindFreedom know.

Wonder why Governor Pawlenty won’t speak out about Ray’s shock? Maybeit’s related to the fact that Governor Pawlenty has appointed andre-appointed Brian Nystrom to an important counseling board. Nystrom isCEO of the mental health organization that employs Ray’s mainpsychiatrist, Dean Knudson.

Next Forced Shock for Ray: Tax Day

Ray met with his main psychiatrist Dean Knudson on 7 April 2009. Dr. Knudson confirmed that Ray’s next forced electroshock would be on Wednesday, 15 April 2009.

And Ray was indeed forcibly shocked that day.

That was USA Tax Day. Dr. Knudson is moving Ray to an ongoing “every 30 days” schedule, and may even be replaced because of public pressure.

The next time you hear the mental health system plead, again, “We need more money,” remember the huge amount of taxpayer moneywasted to pay for the ongoing torture of Ray Sandford.
