On June 19 it will be two years since Esmin Green was murdered-by-neglect at the Kings County Hospital Center Psychiatric Emergency Room. In February 2010, it was reported by the media that a male “patient” was raped by an employee of Kings County who was charged for the crime. As recently as April 27, 2010 more citations of abuses were published in the news.
Not only does this abuse and torture happen – but it happens in the multi-million dollar new psychiatric building. This was supposed to end murder, abuse, rape, and torture of people confined within its walls – after the City agreed to court monitoring because of the abuses and torture that people were subjected to while detained in the facility.
YOU CAN HELP US STOP ABUSE AND TORTURE!
SIGN ON AS AN ORGANIZATIONAL CO-SPONSOR OR INDIVIDUAL ENDORSER TODAY: www.TheOpalProject.org/Vigil.html
This abuse and torture has been going on for centuries with no end in sight – we must make our voices heard!
Kings County is not safe.
Kings County should be closed down.
Rape and Death are not good outcomes.
COME CALL TO CLOSE THIS PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTION DOWN June 18-19, 2010.
