I will be emailing a copy of this to every editor I know, especially those I challenge on twitter – who have known for years what is happening to me and continue to censor what I know, say, do and how I am persecuted for it. When I get no response (as I have been ignored for years) I will then make a complaint to the Press Council about censorship.
Mike King is right they just write nice things but they never ever do anything about making sure these things happen – how could they, there are no professional services and most suicidal living in inhuman living situations, terrorised by govt and community – of course they suicide, its the only hope of getting out of this neo-liberal nightmare.
John Crawshaw phoned me about 5 yrs ago – 6pm one night after months of me begging him for help and telling him local mental health services and ACC were refusing me all care. He assured me I would get professional care I so desperately needed – stupid me had hope – that help never came and a suicidal person who has their hopes dashed is going to suffer some of the worst suicidal hell thoughts on earth. Of course in this shit hole if you’re suicidal and don’t kill yourself you’re a time wasting attention seeker – if you do kill yourself its a tragedy.
If there are mental health services then why am I up on 7 police charges, after ACC illegally withdrew all my care/rehab in 2009 (after National got in). Why have I had six charges for legally protesting dropped at the last minute by police since 2009, why have I been acquitted of another 7 legal protests about mental health? I was dragged through court by Wairarapa DHB for legally protesting outside DHB offices at Masterton Hospital – I was forced to represent myself and won. I’m entitled to compensation for what they did but told I need a lawyer to get it and I can’t afford one, letter from DHB about it was insulting and vicious.
You should read the transcript – judge Tuohy asked security guard what I was doing when he arrived – he replied singing. Judge said singing, really, mmmm. I didn’t handle things very well because I have a very debilitating stress disorder called Complex PTSD (look it up its extremely dangerous, most people suicide). Judge was nice though, he helped a bit – I won. One question I did ask was had security guard ever trespassed a protester before – he hadn’t – but was told to by this revolting woman from DHB office who demanded I was.
Why is my only criminal conviction in 52 years wilful trespass of the Law Society when I went there and refused to leave until I got a lawyer. Police arrived told me I was arrested, to pick up my things and we left – first time no handcuffs. Now I have to tell people who ask if I have a criminal conviction, its humiliating.
Current police charges involve misuse of a Telephone for phoning ACC screaming for my care to be reinstated after winning two reviews in 2010 and 2011 – I had waited six years and was becoming more and more unwell. I didn’t threaten anybody with harm but said I hoped and prayed God would hurt them as much as they were hurting me and all those other abuse victims I knew were being denied entitlements – women and children. I also have developed a tourettes type disorder so can’t help the swearing when I’m flipping out – my current case will have Dr Alan Doris as a witness on my behalf – he had already done a report for ACC saying I was like this and they should ignore it and give me care I needed. All ACC do is reports, they never give me the care, but mostly they refuse to accommodate communication impairments I now have when interacting with them.
ACC also only called police after I made a formal Privacy Act request for copies of the recordings I was making to ACC remote claims answerphone, I wanted to have proof of how unwell I was and how I was begging for help. I was told they didn’t keep recordings so I couldn’t have a copy, yet within 2 months they were using a copy of one of those recordings to demand police prosecute me for misuse of a telephone. The first lot of charges they dropped, then six weeks later they did it again – I had had them at my home so often for WELFARE CHECKS (all calls made by agencies I was begging for help from) about 18 months ago I started having nightmares and every car I heard in the street I panicked and had to look out the window to see if they were coming to get me.
One time they arrived at 11pm, I had been really unwell, was terrified being woken up, though some previous violent flatmates were coming to get me, when they said it was police I thought one of my children had died – I never slept rest of the night, what happened is on my facebook page.
I have been making submissions to committees and making formal complaints for years about how incompetent, unprofessional and abusive ACC and mental health are. Petitioned United Nations, spoke to their delegates, all ignored. They violate multiple laws as other pages on this website show. They deny people PROFESSIONAL HEALTH PROCESSES/MODELS – they’re illegally experimenting on people – and the only reason is neo-liberal terrorists don’t believe in helping terrorised abuse and trauma victims. All they like doing is making money out of them through justice/prison system and compulsory treatment orders.
Ever go into a home of someone with mental health issues and they’ll be taking boxes of drugs – as well as being really dysfunctional. Ask people who are into meds – they can rattle off all the drugs like professionals – which ones to take, which you never touch. Mark Unsworth is a top government advisor, runs a government Public Relations (spin doctor) business in Wellington, gloats about arriving in 1993 when MMP came in to set up his business. The man ‘was’ a very highly paid drug company executive, sent here to make sure drug companies took over mental health, instead of people getting the professional health models they were entitled to – not to mention the safe homes they are also entitled to under NZ law.
We still have forced ECT on people in New Zealand – ELECTRIC SHOCK TREATMENT has been stopped in most countries as its seen as inhumane – still doing it in New Zealand – and it doesn’t work, a short fix maybe but for the most seriously unwell nothing more than abuse/persecution.
Then of course there are all the abused women who not getting help, then have children, still not getting help when they are entitled to it under ACC law (please can media reading this read the IPRCA – ACC law – especially social rehabilitation and Schedule 1). They’re illegally having their children taken, I know several of them, it hurts my heart watching these poor women suffer like no mother should ever have to.
Ignorant bigoted self-righteous people in suicide prevention have created a system that strips suicidal people naked – to terrorise them more. Saw on working dog programme recently a police officer standing beside a suicidal woman curled up near a fence with dog in front of him barking at her – terrorising her. I’ve had the dog, completely freaked me out – I did some art about it next day, was terrifying, lead to a series of events I can’t even talk about or I’ll go to the knife drawer right now.) Next shot on the programme was them handcuffing her and stuffing her in back of a police car. Why are disabled suicidal people being treated like criminals? Something to do with Christian believing suicide is a sin – driving people to suicide is the sin!
I protest a lot – would have done 200 protests over the years since ACC illegally withdrew all my care and tried to kill me. Every interaction I have with police, they agree mentally ill people are not getting help they need and entitled to, which is why they end up dealing with them. Times I’ve been in the cells, so many mentally ill, some beating themselves against doors for hours, while officers try to calm them and say help is coming. I get CATT team called occasionally, just as punishment by those I am protesting in front of – I speak truth to power. Takes 5 hours before they get there, I start swearing at them, because I have been denied care so many times over the years I reject them before they reject me. They always leave and now most of them who come are foreigners – I can’t even get someone who is a New Zealander and I’m Pakeha.
One time I was watching court prior to my case coming up in 1 1/4 hours of the 12 cases I saw, 4 of them were mental health – so one third of people going through court are mentally injured abuse victims or mentally ill (note there is a difference).
Then of course there is me trying to get a lawyer to make ACC and mental health provide the professional services I know I am entitled to under ACC, health, disability, criminal, imperial, human rights and bill of rights laws. Like making a complaint to the courts about torture by the NZ government – was rejected by Judge Davidson, saying I was abusing the process. I have documents to show what I wrote – I did my best and begged for a lawyer to do it properly.
Months later I went into High Court where Legal Aid are based telling them I could not get a lawyer – I can get legal aid I just can’t get a lawyer, they’re all too busy or don’t have any experience in human rights law or don’t do legal aid. Was insulted and told I was a liar, that I obviously didn’t have a case if I couldn’t find a lawyer. Had my guitar on at the time and went stood in the corner singing, Why Am I Arrested For Being Disabled, playing guitar, when guard held my guitar so I couldn’t play I started reciting Wasps in the Beehive. A woman behind the counter was cheering for me, she knew what I was saying was true.
Police were called and I was illegally trespassed, next time I went back months later for Tony Ellis case against Attorney General and DHBs re torture of mentally ill men, I organised it night before with security because I didn’t want any hassles or anything happening that would set my disorder off. I went in the building multiple times before to go to the toilet etc but when I went to attend court so I could watch how Tony Ellis presented the case (I had intended going every day) I was assaulted and denied access. I was severely traumatised because I knew I couldn’t do it without this information, couldn’t get a lawyer and would continue to be persecuted and denied health care, continue to be left rotting on welfare and despised by most of my community/family, continue to live with suicidal nightmare of hell.
I have been making formal complaints of harm to police for around five years, saying ACC and mental heatlh violating Sections 150A 151 155 157 of Crimes Act – which they are. Police refuse to act and several have taken to terrorising and discrediting me, to the point of physical assault. At one point Mike Sutton of Masterton police said he would investigate – I just about fell off my chair. He came back two weeks later saying he didn’t know who to prosecute. I know he had been warned not to do it by the government and I pointed out ACC are a limited liability company and should be investigated and prosecuted just like any business.
My living situation has been the worst, all these years forced to move repeatedly due to landlords selling houses or poverty or being discriminated against. I always tidy up places I live and leave them better than I found them – and I ALWAYS get ripped off.
My living situation has been dire since my children left home, past 9 people I have lived with all ripped me off, taken advantage, stolen from me, victimised me and two have attempted suicide. One stalked me for months, was terrifying. You are not allowed to leave disabled people where they will be harmed its against criminal law.
I can’t go on – my stress disorder is compounding (complex PTSD) and every time I talk about things above I get flashbacks to being highly suicidal or severely traumatised by people or situations. I’m crying now, getting visions of knives slicing up my forearms and bleeding out, the knife drawer is only 30 steps away. How many times I’ve walked there – only reason I don’t end it is that’s what these neo-liberal filth want, they trying to drive people to suicide purposely, its the neo-liberal way.
I have reports saying I am intelligent, do not have a personality disorder and not delusional – until I see a report on people like Bill English, Jonathan Coleman, John Crawshaw and Alastair Scott that they dont’ have serious mental health issues with what they are doing and ignoring, then I know they are mentally disturbed. Years of neo-liberal propaganda advancing rich, disadvantaging middle class and persecuting poor, radicalised rich pigs who believe all poor people are that way because of their choices.
All I want is to get better and go back to work so I don’t have to live with mentally ill people who take advantage of me and hopefully one day get somewhere to live that I dont’ have to move from and can grow a garden and not be terrified of the next move. Landlords are a nightmare to deal with as I get really angry when I ask more than three times for dangerous things to be fixed and they ignore me.
There is so much more to my story, what is happening to me is illegal and Human Rights agencies just ridicule discredit and insult me when I beg for professional health care I am entitled to.
MMMM – still typing – how can media not know when neo-liberal Annette King drove 1000s of disabled people out of mental health facilities into a cruel callous hateful community – without the professional heatlh care and rehabilitation they were entitled to. We all know the community suffered because these people were too unwell and not getting help they needed – that’s when they started having beggars on the street. Mentally ill people have been in a housing crisis for 30 years – its only now its hit middle class media are saying anything.
We all know when these disabled people were driven out of facilities the prisons filled up – an officer arresting me once had been a prison guard in the 1980s, he said he watched it happen. According to NZ and international law you are not allowed to persecute people based on the type of disability they have………………………..
OH LORD I WISH I WAS DEAD, SHOT WITH A BULLET RIGHT THROUGH THE HEAD……………………….
LASTLY – please can a journalist with some compassion, intelligence and integrity interview me, I can’t do this by writing it all the time – I need to look in someones face – because I’m never allowed to look in the faces of those oppressing me and getting police, justice and mental health agencies to do it.
Also Andrew Curtis-Cody who runs adult mental health in Wairarapa is a psychopath and extremely mentally disturbed – everybody knows it, everybody tells me he’s a nut job and I know it. You should see him when he’s part of CATT team, no emotion whatsoever – psychopaths are attracted to mental health because they can have power over people, persecute them and get paid for it. He has been acting head for over a decade, because he is not appropriate qualified. My complaints to local DHB I get abused for, I am blocked from making complaints by email, I spent 4 years with a HDC advocate trying to get help to no avail. When I went to HDC and begged for help I was ignored – even though advocate said Code of Rights was being violated.
…………… why do so many people allow this to happen to me – even my current lawyer?
I know what’s happening to me is related to neo-liberal terrorism by rich against poor, its all about the violence industry, its sick and it must stop.
Going to Chelsea Brunton’s funeral tomorrow 🙁 it makes me really sad that I can’t get health care people like her and me entitled to by law, makes me beat myself up for not doing enough, not protesting enough, not being able to take my own case to court to prove what government are illegally doing to people.
