CCHR Applauds State Acting on African American Teen Psychiatric Restraint Death

seclusion and restraints

Mental Health Watchdog and Task Force Against Institutional Racism Leader say Michigan could potentially lead the way for national restraint death reform, saying psychiatric restraints should be banned to save lives

Mental Health Watchdog and Task Force Against Institutional Racism Leader say Michigan could potentially lead the way for national restraint death reform

Too many psychiatric restraint deaths are excused as an unfortunate but acceptable outcome in behavioral hospitals, and therefore, immune to prosecution. There’s an inequity in the law.”

— CCHR International

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Kalamazoo County, Michigan Medical Examiner’s office has ruled that 16-year-old African American Cornelius Frederick’s death following a restraint procedure at Lakeside Academy, a psychiatric facility, was a homicide. Three staff have been charged with involuntary manslaughter and second-degree child abuse. Two were also accused of restraining Frederick in a “grossly negligent manner,” Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting announced.[1]

Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHR), a 51-year mental health industry watchdog group and Rev. Frederick Shaw, head of the NAACP Inglewood-South Bay Branch, commended authorities and Michigan state agencies for quickly acting on the death. On April 29, 2020, Frederick, a ward of the state since age 14, was physically restrained at the Sequel Youth & Family Services-owned residential psychiatric facility that treats foster care and other children with behavioral issues. Frederick went into cardiac arrest while being restrained by staff, allegedly after throwing a sandwich on the floor and becoming unruly. According to the family’s attorney, Frederick started yelling, “I can’t breathe!” before passing out. Thirty hours later, he was dead.[2]

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has terminated its contract with Lakeside and started the process to revoke its license.[3] MDHHS Director Robert Gordon issued a statement on June 22 that “we will not rest until we have changed the system that allowed his death,” and MI Governor Gretchen Whitmer has directed actions be taken to correct the system.[4] MDHHS said it “will change its policies to forbid the use of physical restraints in all its licensed and contracted facilities.”

Shaw, who recently started a Task Force against racism in the mental health system, comprising African American doctors, psychologists, ministers, attorneys and advocates, said he will present evidence to members of the Michigan Black Caucus to support a ban on restraint use in all state and private psychiatric hospitals.[5] He cited a Journal of Contemporary Criminal Justice article that said following the civil rights movement, stereotyping or falsely profiling Blacks as criminals became so pervasive that any “young Black male,” could be seen as potentially violent or disruptive.[6]

“This indoctrinated mind-set has to change. The tragedy of Cornelius Frederick raises concerns about institutional racism in the mental health and foster care/juvenile detention systems. African Americans are over-represented in restraint-related deaths of children and adults with disabilities and are racially stereotyped as violent—a throw-back to eugenics—which can predispose them to being drugged and restrained more,” Rev. Shaw said.

CCHR worked with others to obtain reforms to federal regulations regarding restraint use in mental health facilities following a Hartford Courant series on restraint deaths in 1998 that led to a Congressional Hearing on the issue. Jan Eastgate, president of CCHR International, said it’s time for a complete overhaul of the potentially deadly practice, not just in Michigan but nationwide.

She said patients can often be affected by psychotropic drugs that can induce violent behavior leading to them being restrained and this should be investigated in any restraint death. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations say that “a patient may experience a severe medication reaction that causes him or her to become violent.”[7]

Shaw adds that an investigation should also determine if Michigan psychiatric facilities are excessively prone to using restraints against African Americans and minorities and also on foster care children entrusted to these facilities’ care.

CCHR cites cases such as the U.S. Supreme Court which held that patients, even those who are involuntarily committed, have constitutionally protected liberty interests.[8] Testimony in another case suggested that Restraint and Seclusion (R&S) are often used “reactively and inappropriately” by staff.[9]

The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law addressed restraint deaths saying patients’ basic constitutional rights, such as life and liberty interests and freedom from cruel and unusual punishment or unnecessary bodily restraints, are protected. “Violation of any of these rights may be grounds for damages in a case involving R&S,” the journal reported. Further, “because risks to patients can be severe, some scholars advocate the complete elimination of R&S.”[10]

CCHR agrees with the elimination, saying that too many psychiatric restraint deaths are excused as an unfortunate but acceptable outcome in behavioral hospitals, and therefore, immune to prosecution. There’s an inequity in the law, it says. Shaw says, “Frederick’s death is an example of systemic abuse and institutional racism that pervades the psychiatric-behavioral industry nationwide and should be held accountable—judicially and legislatively. Right now, Michigan could lead the way to potential effective reform.”

CCHR also calls on people to support the Michigan Center for Youth Justice online petition to get Justice for Cornelius Frederick.[11]

CCHR is a mental health watchdog responsible for more than 180 laws that protect patients from damaging psychiatric practices. DONATE to support its work here: https://www.cchrint.org/cchrint-donate/

Obelisk Capital Puts Clients First Amid Coronavirus Crisis

GEORGETOWN, GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Obelisk Capital Management Limited is committed to its values where all clients deserve exceptional service and come before profits. The global pandemic has affected many firms but Obelisk is committed to coming out on top.

The company manages gold streaming projects in which the efficiency of the business relies on the movement of gold to refineries. The COVID-19 pandemic has put the company’s logistics on hold as airlines reduce their flights to record low capacities and international borders remain closed. Obelisk remains in strong financial position.

On June 26, 2020 the decision was made to liquidate assets of the company based on a petition filed by an individual client. Keeping the best interest of its other clients, Management decided to defend its financial position, as Obelisk maintains a high asset ratio relative to liabilities. “Our decision to action against the petition aligns the company’s values of putting all clients first, even though the action comes at a cost to Obelisk” says Jones, who is the Senior Manager for Obelisk projects.

Jones says the pandemic has revealed and accelerated the need for companies like Obelisk to implement alternatives to diversify from the reliance of international flights for logistics but for companies coming out of COVID lockdowns the business model must be client focused.

With a focus on client satisfaction and a strong business model Obelisk remains confident it will weather the pandemic challenges.

AV-Comparatives – an ISO certified independent antivirus testing lab

If you’ve ever considered doing your own tests of antivirus programs, you might be surprised to find that it’s much, much more difficult than you think.

You need a unbiased source of reliable information. AV-test labs like AV-Comparatives have years of experience, plus the facilities and test methods to deliver meaningful results you can trust.”

— Peter Stelzhammer, AV-Comparatives, CBDO and co-founder

INNSBRUCK, TIROL, AUSTRIA, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Have you ever been curious as to how good your antivirus program is at protecting your computers and servers? How it scores in an real av-test? If you’ve ever considered doing your own tests of antivirus programs, you might be surprised to find that it’s much, much more difficult than you think.

Here’s why:

There are literally millions of cyberthreats out there, so testing only against a few will not have any statistical validity. You need a threat-set that represents all the different types of threats(viruses, worms, ransomware, 0-days, exploits, trojans, backdoors, botnets and so on), AND you need to be sure that these are genuinely malicious and life on the internet.

Even if you had thousands of relevant cyberthreats, how would you test them? Well, you could scan them with an AV program installed on your own computer, or use an online scanning service. However, neither method lets you test against a large number of threats with multiple AV programs simultaneously.

There’s another, very important disadvantage to both. The on-demand scanning feature of a modern antivirus program is just one of many ways it can protect your computer. If in real life you try to browse to a cyberthreat, your security program checks the URL to see if it’s on a blacklist; uses file reputation services; unpacks the file to see through any obfuscation techniques; employs heuristics and machine learning to detect new malware programs; and monitor its behaviour in real time when you execute it, to see if it does anything suspicious.

If you look at AV-Comparatives Real-World Protection Test, you can see a perfect example, testing all the techniques an anti-virus software offers.

Professional labs have the resources to use large amounts of relevant malware, and test all the security features of multiple antivirus programs simultaneously, with equal conditions for all the tested products. They can also investigate usability of the tested products, that is whether they create a lot of false alarms or slow your computer down in daily use
.
Some of the test labs even undergo strict audits by ISO, to prove that they are independent. This ensures that they understand the interests of security vendors whilst remaining impartial and unaffected by commercial lobbying organisations. Independent av-test labs also work with universities on scientific research, which means that their test methodologies are state of the art.

Now, are you sure you want to rely on the results of DIY testing to protect your computer? Or do you prefer to rely on the results of an independent testing lab?

EFD Prevented Downed Powerline Before It Happens

A broken conductor strand detected before it falls

Dr Alan Wong and landowner Michael Thorne at the incident site

IND Technology continues to roll out more sites as we are in talks with several large utilities across the US, Europe and Asia.”

— CEO, Dr Alan Wong

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A recent incident in Victoria has shown the importance of Early Fault Detection (EFD) system, with a broken conductor strand being identified before the powerline fell.

The EFD system, installed by Powercor Australia on a 13,000-volt powerline in a high fire danger area at Porcupine Ridge near Daylesford in Victoria, detected a broken conductor strand in time for repairs by Powercor’s line crews.

Dr Alan Wong, CEO of tech company IND Technology, which develops and sells EFD systems around the world explained.

"The EFD system first picked up indications of trouble in mid-April. Our team was able to confirm the breakage when we visited the site in mid-May. Powercor which acted on our alert immediately sent a crew to make the conductor safe, so it couldn’t fall or unravel further to create an electrocution risk from hanging strands of wire. They came back and fully repaired it two days later. ”

This ground-breaking technology uses pole-mounted sensors every five kilometres. It continuously monitors powerline networks to detect problems before they create serious safety risks, such as wildfires, locating them accurately within ten metres so crews can go directly to the problem and repair it.

IND Technology developed it with support from Deakin and RMIT Universities in Australia.

Local landowner, Michael Thorne said he was very happy the problem had been found and fixed.

“I often walk through this paddock with the children and we look at the stock and the pasture but never think to look at the powerline above. If that strand had kept unravelling and one of us had walked into it, we could have been killed”. He said.

Thorne is active in the local Country Fire Authority and is very conscious of the fire risk of fallen powerlines. “If a fire started under this powerline in the peak of Summer it would likely run up the hill to destroy our property and others further along Porcupine Ridge. An afternoon wind change would then likely drive it into the State Forest only a few hundred metres away. The outcome could be very bad.”

The powerline had been inspected just a few months earlier and would not have been inspected again until after two more fire seasons.

Broken conductor strands like this one were implicated in the Kilmore East Kinglake fire, Victoria’s worst-ever powerline fire disaster which killed more than 120 people on Black Saturday.

This is the third powerline at risk of falling that EFD has found in a small-scale Victorian Government's Powerline Bushfire Safety Program-funded trial covering less than half a per cent of Victoria’s high fire risk powerlines. The results of the Trial indicated all 30,000 km of Victoria’s single-wire powerlines in high fire-risk areas could have EFD monitoring installed for about $30-40 million.

The trial finished 12 months ago in mid-2019 but IND Technology has kept the trial systems running. Both AusNet and Powercor Australia are taking over ownership of the trial systems on their networks and are committed to keep them running as they consider future use of EFD systems. New South Wales network company Endeavour Energy is installing a small trial of EFD on selected Blue Mountains powerlines.

Besides Australia, early results from trials in California suggest EFD is a promising wildfire mitigation tool. It has been picking up similar incidents of broken strands and other types of powerline-related faults since 2019.

Power industry research continues to report utility powerline monitoring using visual inspection at multi-year intervals is mainly driven by the incidence of conductor falls and that a reliable and cost-efficient means of assessment of the likelihood of conductor fall is urgently needed.

Tom Girardi, Super Attorney

https://www.tomgirardi.com/

With nearly fifty years of experience representing victims, Girardi has obtained numerous multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements, handling claims involving wrongful death, commercial litigation, products liability, bad faith insurance, and toxic torts. Thomas Vincent Girardi is a founding partner of Girardi & Keese, a downtown Los Angeles law firm. In 1970, Girardi became the first attorney in the state of California to win a $1 million-plus award for a medical malpractice case. Girardi has handled major cases against the former Lockheed Corp (now the Lockheed Martin Corp.), Pacific Gas & Electric Co, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and Hollywood's seven major movie studios.

In 2003, he received the most prestigious honor of being inducted into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame by the California State Bar. Mr. Girardi is a Member of the Board of Directors and former President of the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers, an invitation-only worldwide organization, limited to 500 trial lawyers. Mr. Girardi is also the first trial lawyer to be appointed to the California Judicial Council, the policymaking body of the state courts.

Albeit, one of the most influential lawyers of our time, Girardi amorously sites Perry Mason as one of his earliest childhood law inspirations. “He was a lawyer on television, 7pm on Saturday night and I would watch that show every Saturday,” states Girardi.

In one of Girardi’s better-known cases against Pacific Gas & Electric, the utility company agreed to pay $333 million to 650 residents of the desert community of Hinkley, California. The residents blamed incidents of cancer and other diseases on contaminated water leaked from a gas pumping station. This case was the inspiration for the film Erin Brockovich starring Julia Roberts.
