_______________________________

This Easter Sunday 2008 Toxic Sermon might prove
to be a useful path. And a "True Flag" under which many
political factions could rally, if the "censorship" from
the major news medias can be circumvented. So here
is a copy / paste of my "toxic sermon". Strangely enough,
you life or the life of someone you love, might depend on
your reading this. Please pass it on. It is the achilleas

Easter Sunday Toxic Sermon of 2008
titled -



Red Collar Criminals Playing American Roulette
With Our Lives

No copyright on this posting is claimed .
Feel free to forward and post this toxic sermon.
Reproduce at will.
Blessings, The Toxic Reverend



This is what I call American Roulette, with Red Collar Crime.
Unlike the Russians with a revolver, we use products and services.
"In American Roulette, paranoia is a survival skill, because their
is no criminal accountability for the corporate official that whacks
you with his corporations products or services". If your family is
"resourceful", they might be able to sue for a few dollars for your
"wrongful death" but even the amount of the liability suits were
"capped". Leaving lawyers with little incentive to "herd the stampede" .

There are three examples of Red Collar Crimes
in this "toxic sermon". Better known examples
are Firestine tires, the movies "Class Action"
that starred Gene Hackman, as well as
Erin Brockovich, starring Julia Roberts.

The third cited example in this sermon is ongoing
with a prosecuting attorney that has been fighting
to get criminal charges brought against the corporate
officials that were responsible for an unknown number
of American deaths. Homicide was not listed among
the criminal indiments listed in the news release
that is linked in. I am citing these other reports to
demonstrate that this is not just "an elephant in the
living-room" . It is a virtual and rampant herd. And
nobody wants to talk about it. In fact, I had to
name it, just so I could. The "commonly known"
examples that I had cited did not have any criminal
cases brought against the corporations of the
individual corporate officials that were responsible.

Didn't you ever wonder "WHY" ?

Examples:

1: Trade Secrets,
A web page from Bill Moyers Public Broadcasting show, national television.
Documentation of over 50 years of corporate cover up, costing an unknown
number of American lives, with out criminal prosecution.
http://www.pbs.org/tradesecrets/index.html

2: Skeletons in the Courthouse:
Hazards to the Public Remain Secret PDF - Link
April 2002 By Coalition for Consumer Rights,

A copy of the "censored" PDF report was re-posted at
http://www.angelfire.com/nm/redcollarcrime/courtsecrets.pdf
That entire web cite has been censored and even some of the
Archived Wayback Machine copies have been deleted.
I had download the report and made back ups . So I re-posted the report
PDF - Link at
American Roulette - Red Collar Crime.
I have also converted the PDF file to text format and
posted is as a blog "Hazards to the Public Remain Secret"
at my alternate
"Justice Is Homeless" The blog is
Listing solutions while tracking the money trail of homeless criminalization

The "Coalition for Consumer Rights" web page is gone from the net and the
times that I have tried to call the authors (March 08) their phone is "being
checked for trouble".

Or at least that is what the phone company recording says. But here is
the address and phone number, anyway. Try to contact them at your own risk

How ever, I did find Nancy Cowles in the Fall of 2009, at the
"Kids in Danger" web page www.kidsindanger.org


Holding corporate officials criminally liable for
the crimes the commit with their corporations
for "their" all mighty dollar could cause this
war to end, much quicker.

W.R. Grace to Pay $250 Million for Libby Cleanup,
by Liz Borkowski
A 10-count criminal indictment against seven
senior current and former Grace officials alleging
conspiracy. For knowing endangerment, obstruction

http://thepumphandle.wordpress.com/2008/03/12/wr-grace-to-pay-250-million-for-libby-cleanup

In reference to the above story, the criminal
charges are "pending". National support is needed
to see that these criminal charges against the
individuals responsible are in fact heard in a court
of criminal (not civil) court.

The charges have been brought by
William W. Mercer
United States Attorney
for the District of Montana

--

This next excerpt is form "Red Collar Crime"
(a work in progress)

Michael McCann was a longtime district attorney
ilwaukee County, (retired 12 / 31 / 2006 ). He
was best known for prosecuting Jeffrey Dahmer.

But McCann has also prosecuted more than ten
corporations for reckless homicide over the
last two decades and has won every case. More
than that, Michael McCann s also an opponent of
the death penalty.

End of excerpt from:

One problem with his ten reckless homicide convictions.
He convicted corporations, but none of the people that
were responsible. Still, it was a step in the right direction.
A story about him and the court cases is linked in from the
main front page of :>

Note:

McCann said he plans to teach at Marquette University and
write a book about prosecution. NO ETA given.
Maybe the title will be;

Suggestions on how to organize a social movement
to demand criminal accountability of corporate officials
for the crimes they commit with corporations, rather than
the usual "prosecution in civil court" with out criminal
penalties against the individuals, would be most welcome.

Suicide - Homicide and the Biochemistry of Crime


Independent research:
Suicide - Homicide as it corresponds to
the Fight or Flight Response.

______________________________

In general, the following is theory and research from
my own observations and experiences.

While I have not attempted suicide since having joined
some "anonymous 12 Step fellowships back in 1985, I
can tell you that my depression was from my anger being
turned inward as opposed to being expressed outward.
And while I am going blind with macular degeneration from
toxic chemical exposures, I am aware that my cognitive thought
process is also effected and does effect my mental health. Some
of my perspectives are based on the facts that I have been left for dead
(1977) shot (in the early 1980's) and in many violent situations that have
given me what is termed "Post Traumatic Stress disorder".


This posting is  also an attempt to journal my "recovery".
For the record, I was on Prozac in 1995 and I am well aware
that the majority (if not all) patients being treated with SSRI's
are not evaluated for toxic chemical exposures.  


It is apparent to me that there could be some adverse side effects
from the mixture of SSRI's and toxic chemical exposures. Just as
there are reactions from dairy products and some antibiotics. garlic
interferring with anti-viral medications and grapefruit interating with
seizure medications.  To my knowledge (and I have researched the 
issue), interactions of SSRI's and the various low dose cumulative
effects of toxic chemicals have not been evaluated.  In fact, it does
seem that SSRI's are one of the most often prescribed drugs to 
treat the symptoms of such toxic chemical exposures.


From my own experience, I strongly believe that such interactions
of toxic chemicals with SSRI's, if not just the SSRI's themselves, are
the cause of so many senseless violence and shootings.

_________________




The "Threshold Point" or the "Fight or Flight Response" can be
altered by diet and nutritional supplements *as well as toxic
chemical exposures.

This corresponds with "Homicide - Suicide". And if
only the behavioral conditioning responses are dealt
with (from violence in movies,
PTSD symptoms, and or
other factors) that predispose the responses, a reduction
in homicide may very well result in an increase in
suicides.

To re-state this. Reducing the violence in movies to
reduce the "predisposition to violence" may very well
result in a reduction of murder. With a corresponding
increase in suicide if the "thresh hold point" at which an
individual enters into becoming suicidal - homicidal are
not addressed and or corrected.

This should also hold true with symptoms of PTSD and
other psychological "symptoms" of various mental health
conditions. Including "Domestic Abuse" and other violent
crimes.
Even so far as "Police Brutality" and "bad judgment calls"
with the use of "Deadly Force".

Even when there is "police brutality",
why should law enforcement be immune to a
"Warlock's Brew" of "Cumulative Toxic
Chemical Insults ?

Could the threshold point at which a police officer decides
to use deadly force be altered by toxic chemical exposures,
regardless of their training ?

Even so, there are "other factors" that impact such situation
with law enforcement in what I believe to be a much greater
scale.


Copy / paste excerpts from a deleted blog / work in progress:

What do you think might happen if
an individual that is suicidal
and homicidal were to meet up with a
policeman that in edge like a cat on a
hot tin roof. Policemen are not immune
to these toxic chemicals. They could
effect their split second judgment, with
the use of deadly force and even their
behavior. Just as steroid abuse can cause
rages, known as "Roiding".

Suicide - Homicide and the Biochemistry of Crime, pp.66

Independent research:
Suicide - Homicide as it corresponds to
the Fight or Flight Response.


Copy / paste excerpts from a work in progress:

Subject matter of violent criminals that were
tested for toxic chemicals having all been found to be
toxic.
Book title:
Food and Behavior,
By Barbara Stitt
Chapter: The Biochemistry of Crime, pp.66-73


Introduction about this book.

The study was done a Barbra Stitt while she was the
head of the probation department for the city of
Cuyahoga Falls, in Ohio.

The following is an excerpt from her book that was
sent to my G-mail account.

Toxic Substances

So far we have talked about some dietary influences on behavior
with which many readers may have been unfamiliar: distortions
in the way the body handles sugar, missing psychoactive
nutrients, allergic/addictive reactions. There is a more direct
way in which our chemical environment—and especially the
chemical components of what we eat—can impact on the
human mind. This is through exposure to poisons.

End of excerpt from the book
Food and Behavior,
By Barbara Stitt
Chapter: The Biochemistry of Crime, pp.66-73


That chapter does go on to mention that the cast
majority of her "clients" on parole / probation
that were tested for toxic chemicals had heavy
exposures. The chapter also documents situations
of "Domestic Abuse". One such example is given
about a man that took a job in a foundry and
acquired aluminum poisoning. The "Domestic Abuse"
stopped once he was properly treated, he stayed
out of the judicial system and went back to being
"Happily Married". Much to his wife and children's
delight.

In the movie "Super Size Me" a school of children
with learning disabilities and behavioral problems
did a 180 after the kids were put on an organic diet.
This was done with "Natural Ovens" and Pail Stitt,
Barbra Stitt's husband. Her book " Food and Behavior"
was the basis for the approach that they took with the
kids. And it was done at no additional cost to the
school system. This is also applicable in mental
health wards, as well as jails and other institutions.

The Appleton's Central Alternative High School that was featured in the movie,
"Super Size Me" should be of prime interest.

The story of the Appleton project has been documented on a short DVD, Impact of Fresh, Healthy Foods on Learning and Behavior. It is also part of their Roadmap to Healthy Foods in School, and both are available from Natural Press, 1-877-629-8398.

The reason that it was "cost effective" to change the kids diets to organic
was in part due to their "cutting back on security". It was a "toss of the dice",
and they did show that you do not need such a high level of expensive security
when the kids are "stabilized".


Jeffery Barr PhD and Barbra Stitt were a consultant with the
school in the movie "Super Size Me" that used diet to straighten
the kids with behavioral problems.

At least that is my understanding of it and you might want
to verify the fact for yourself.

Many of the links that were active then are now a

------ end of October 4, 2010 note

The movie did not detail the nutritional supplements that were put
into the kids "Smoothies". (A type of fresh fruit blended drinks that the
kids loved, and so "took their medicine).

Notes:
Not all nutritional supplements are the same.
Excerpt from the "Straight Kink" blog on PTSD

You can get a sense of how difficult it is from a
1999 landmark study reported in the Journal of
the American Nutraceutical Association
. This
study found that only 2.5 percent of the
commonly available nutritional products they
researched were both nontoxic and effective. In
other words, 97.5 percent of supplements they
studied were either toxic and/or ineffective.

Some of htis is because of the binders that vary from
brand to brand and the companies are not required to
state exactly what is used.




Along with avoiding toxic chemical exposure education,
certain nutritional supplements can greatly aid
detoxification. Other factors that can obscure results
can be revealed with a simple Google search on
"Organic Scam". Here is a hint. The highest level of
perchlorate that the Environmental Working Group
found in fresh produce was in "baby green organic
lettuce".

I have more information posted (including sections at:
of the book pasted in) at
Suicide - Homicide and the Biochemistry of Crime
And
Organic Scams and The Politics of Food (free movie)
plus Action Networks & Resources (view blog)
............

There is a
posted e-mail correspondence with now retired
Santa Rosa CA police chief Mike Dunbaugh

that contains much of the "foundation for recovery". After the
e-mail (a response from the local police chief), the
original e-mail that I had sent is attached. There are some
good recovery programs linked into it.
Some have been around for over twenty years with national acclaim.

______________________________

In general, the following is theory and research from
my own observations:


The "Threshold Point" or the "Fight or Flight Response" can be

To re-state this. Reducing the violence in movies to
reduce the "predisposition to violence" may very well
result in a reduction of murder. With a corresponding
increase in suicide if the "thresh hold point" at which an
individual enters into becoming suicidal - homicidal are

What do you think might happen if

from steroid abuse ?

Oregon programs will stress treatment over jail for minor crimes
by RUTH LIAO, January 22, 2008
Salem Statesman Journal - Salem,OR,USA
Entire story
Excerpts:

Marion County (Oregon) officials hope to reduce the number of
mentally ill people who are jailed for minor crimes by using a new
state grant to provide better mental health care.

About $300,700 was granted to Marion County to enhance
treatment for mentally ill adults who may have committed low-level
crimes. Many of them serve jail time but don't get treatment and
remain perpetually in the system
.
....

One example would be a homeless man urinating in the street, Moore
said. "They might go out and do something that is considered
unlawful," Moore said. ...
.....
"There's a lot of stigmas surrounding mental illness, and there's a greater
stigma of people who commit a crime and have a mental illness," said Scott
Richards, who leads Marion County's acute and correctional mental health
programs.
.....
"But I think one of the root problems to address is mental health
treatment," Richards said.

Comments by the Toxic Reverend:


(A copy / paste from a prior bulletin:)>

How many kids with lead exposures
have been diagnosed with ADD and not chelated?
Only to end up a dysfunctional "toxic victims" and
called "mentally ill". Might a good percentage of
the homeless population be made up of such
individuals ? Then there is the question of "behavioral
problems" from lead exposures among violent
criminals ?

The "Pump Handle Newsletter" with the
"Lead on the Brain"
has many other stories that are also of interest. To
which such deeper questions can also be asked with
regard to the cumulative effects of lead with other toxic
chemicals (16,
*17*).


Because of censorship, you can also do a Google search on
"toxic reverend blog mentally ill toxic victim".

A censored Center For Disease researcher was asked in a
"censored" but published interview what the source of all the toxic
chemicals that he had found in many "healthy" Americans was. He
responded "food" (144).

And that was with the 24 chemicals measured for 1st time (22).

A published news story titled "U.S. Lags In Toxic Testing"
(in health care and medicine) is about a study that reviewed more
than 1,400 chemicals that pose potential threats to human health
and found that only 6% are being tracked by HHS and the EPA. And
only a small percentage of the chemicals known or thought to be
carcinogenic are being tracked by the government, the study found (3).
Then there are the "nonlethal", "Stealth Infections" from a type of
biological weapon now known as an "Incapacitating Agent" (4,5)
