The legal outfit receives external, accounting, secretarial and IT support from Hampden Chambers, a subsidiary of the group.Rose is hoping that after the Act comes in, Hampden Law will become part of the Hampden Group and serve as the group’s legal team.He said: “We perhaps will be acquired by the Hampden Group as its legal team next year.” Hampden Law seeks fresh investors in bid for growth Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoPeople-TodayWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This PhotoPeople-TodayUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndocenter_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Wednesday 15 September 2010 8:07 pm More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_imgThe shackling of incarcerated workers and other members of our class is a heinous crime against humanity. As committed communists, we have to fight to end the conditions of their incarceration. There is another form of shackling:  psychiatric shackling. It is used against the mentally ill or those suspected of mental illness. It is the use of psychosurgery (lobotomies), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and medication shackling. Even if these forms of shackling aren’t used on the patient, people can be tied to their beds or stretchers until they break or relent. It is important to examine these forms of shackling and understand how destructive they can be to the minds of the victims.What is the reasoning behind these forms of shackling? In modern times, it is used to restrain “violent” or “difficult” patients, those in need of real treatment and sympathy. I had akathisia and needed to move. Instead, psychiatric “caregivers” decided I should be trapped like that. It is a dehumanizing and humiliating experience.I’ve seen psychiatric medicinal shackles used on people who simply raised their voices. They were prescribed heavy-duty tranquilizers, including Ativan (lorazepam), Klonopin (clonazepam), Haldol (haloperidol) and Zyprexa (olanzapine). Chemical ‘shackles’Sometimes they were given orally, in the cases of Klonopin and Zyprexa, but most times it would be Haldol and Ativan given via injection. Patients’ choices were limited to nonexistent. Sometimes they could reject addictive benzodiazepines. After this psychiatric injection series, they were locked in a “safe room” and deprived of reading material or human interaction for hours on end. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Mental Health America (MHA) oppose the usage of physical restraints and seclusion of patients, viewing them as failures of treatment and the treatment team. (A treatment team consists of a psychiatrist,  therapist, social worker and the patient’s family, if possible.)This is only the beginning of understanding the history of shackling in mental health facilities. In the past, they used electroshock therapies and psychosurgery; lobotomies were first used in the early 20th century. Dr. Antonio Egas Moniz received a Nobel prize for this cruel discovery. If drilling holes into the skull to destroy part of someone’s brain was bad, a new “development” in psychosurgery allowed doctors to go through an eye socket and stir up the brain. The result would be a completely compliant patient, who oftentimes was totally disabled and needed to be taken care of permanently.Drugs given, not helpThere is also drug-induced shackling of the mind and sometimes the body. This was permissible because no one believed mentally ill people were capable of giving consent. Some facilities still use drug-induced shackling, because it is easier to dope up patients than to help them, if help is possible. In modern psychiatric facilities, the view is that it’s easier to drug patients and dump them after a week, without treating their acute problems.The use of drug-induced therapy started with the advent of the typical antipsychotic or neuroleptic Thorazine (chlorpromazine). This drug was given to  patients in the now-destroyed state hospital system to keep them from acting up and to stay compliant. This is a dehumanizing cruelty, but there’s more: Then came Haldol (haloperidol). Both of these medications had unpleasant or life-threatening side effects. First, the disorders tardive dyskinesia, Parkinsonism and akathisia were found to be caused by neuroleptics. “Neuroleptic” means “to take hold of one’s nerves.” This is an  appropriate name for a medicine when doctors actually wanted to cause side effects. It was believed that typical antipsychotics only worked on D2 (dopamine) receptors, thereby causing tardive dyskinesia or Parkinsonism. It was beyond cruel. Psychiatrists thought the medications were working only if they caused tardive dyskinesia or Parkinsonism. Since then, it has been found that these medicines don’t need to cause these cruel side effects. But psychiatric facilities still use intramuscular Haldol on patients. Even on the first use, Haldol can cause tardive dyskinesia and Parkinsonism. A person doesn’t need to be on it for an extended period of time to suffer from these conditions, although tardive dyskinesia is most common after years of taking antipsychotics. The second and third generation antipsychotics, such as clozapine, aripiprazole and brexpiprazole, are shown to work without impacting D2 receptors as much.Racism in psychiatryUnfortunately, there are other negative aspects of psychiatry. Psychiatrists have often mistreated marginalized people. Racist psychiatrists often overdiagnosed disorders of Black and Brown people. In 1851, Samuel A. Cartwright proposed a mental illness called “drapetomania” to explain why enslaved people fled their captors. This so-called “mental illness” did not exist but is an example of how psychiatry has abused and shackled people.It’s not that mentally ill people shouldn’t take advantage of all the positive help that psychiatry can give. The use of medication is both important and legitimate. However, psychiatrists can cause their skills and medications to shackle those who enter their maw. Remember this and fight for mentally ill people in prisons, psychiatric hospitals and outside the walls.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe TCU basketball season started off with a bang as the women’s team defeated the Duquesne Dukes 61-48 in the first-ever matchup between the two programs. The win marked the team’s seventh-straight home opener victory.“It’s great that you can start out 1-0, especially if you’re able to get a win against such a great quality, well-coached team with so many returns like Duquesne,” said TCU head coach Raegan Pebley.TCU started the game in complete control. The Frogs were up by seven at the first media timeout and were dominating defensively. Duquesne missed their first ten shots from the field and didn’t score during the first seven minutes of the game.Although Duquesne had recorded seven team fouls in the opening quarter, TCU had gone just 3-8 from the foul line. Pebley said her squad is a better free-throw shooting team than what they showed Tuesday.The Dukes went on a 7-0 run to come within one point in the second quarter. TCU struggled to shoot anywhere outside the paint during the period, missing five straight jumpers.The Frogs went back to attacking from the paint and finished the half on a 9-2 run to give them a 27-18 lead at the break.At the half, forward Jordan Moore led all players with 12 points. The Frogs were only shooting 28.6 percent from three and 25 percent from the free throw line.Just like the first half, the Frogs started the second half on fire. With Moore on the bench for an extended period of time, forward Amy Okonkwo stepped up big for TCU. The preseason All-Big 12 forward scored nine points in the first five minutes of the second half, extending the Frogs’ lead to 17.Okonkwo led the team in scoring from the bench last season with 14.4 points per game and Pebley made the decision to put her in the starting line up to start this season.“Wherever I am, I’m gonna have to perform,” Okonkwo said. “It doesn’t matter if I come off the bench or if I start, the same thing is expected of me.”Duquense responded to the 17 point deficit with a 12-2 run. Their shooting percentage had risen to 30.8, shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc.Moore got back involved midway through the fourth quarter, scoring four straight points for TCU to raise her total to 18 for the game.The Frogs were able to cruise to victory from that point.Pebley played almost the entirety of her roster, using 12 players and getting points from nine of them.“Last year, that was a signature element of our team, where we played a lot of people,” Peebly said.Moore and Okonkwo finished with a combined 17-23 for 38 points.“We always talk about this unspoken chemistry,” Moore said about her relationship with Okonkwo. “I feel like that will take us pretty far in this season, just because we have been practicing with each other for a long time.”Kianna Ray (25) led the game with 10 assists.

The Third Report of the National Police Commission noted that nearly 60 % of arrests in India were either unnecessary or unjustified. This report was referred to by the Supreme Court in its decision in the case of Joginder Singh[1]. In the same decision it was emphasised that the police undoubtedly had the power to arrest and interrogate, but that power could not be exercised arbitrarily and capriciously. Realising the need for judicial intervention in such matters, detailed guidelines were formulated by the Supreme Court in the cases of Joginder Singh[2] and D.K.Basu[3], providing inter alia for the memo of arrest being attested by at least one witness (who would be either a member of the family or a respectable person), the arrested person being made aware of his right to have a close family remember being informed of his arrest, the right of the arrestee to meet his lawyer during interrogation, though not throughout the investigation, the constitutional obligation[Article 22(2)] to have the arrested person produced before a magistrate within 24 hours and for a medical examination in certain cases. A warning was also issued to the police bringing to their notice that a failure to follow the guidelines would entail being punished for contempt of court. Many of the aforesaid guidelines were incorporated in the statute, by amending the Code of Criminal Procedure by adding Sections 41A to 41D,50A,54A,55A and 60A in the fond hope that the process of arrests would now be more transparent and the arrested persons would have additional safeguards over and above those already provided for in Chapter V of the CrPC. “Custodial torture is a naked violation of human dignity and degradation which destroys, to a large extent, the individual personality. It is a calculated assault on human dignity and whenever human dignity is wounded, civilisation takes a step backward- flag of humanity must on each such occasion fly half mast. “[4], remarked Justice A.S. Anand, while rendering the now celebrated decision in D.K.Basu. Profound words – but seem to have fallen on deaf ears. A total of 1530 deaths occurred in police custody out of which 144 deaths were in police custody during the period April 2017 to February 2018.[5]Similarly, 1731 people died in custody in India during 2019, (which translates to 5 deaths a day). Out of these 1606 of the deaths were in judicial custody and 125 in police custody, as per a new report published by The Hindu.[6]74.4 % deaths in police custody were attributed to torture or foul play and 19.2% were attributable to foul play. [7] Between 1997 to 2016, there were 790 deaths. As many as 796 citizens died in police firing between 2009 and 2015 according to the data provided by the National Crime Records Bureau translating into 2 deaths a week on an average.[8] A total of 1782 cases of fake encounters were registered between 2000 and 2017 in India.[9] Encounters continue unabated even today with the numbers steadily rising each year. Now compare this, with the number of convictions – 385 policemen were charged, 120 cases were dismissed by courts after charge sheets were filed and just eight policemen were convicted during the period 1997 to 2016.[10] While Indians are expressing rage over the recent death of the father son duo in Tamil Nadu (P.Jayaraj and Beniks), we can be rest assured that this story will die its natural death, being buried in the deluge of other tragedies unfolding each day. A case in point is another news item indicating that seven policemen from Uttar Pradesh who were accused of torturing one Pradeep Tomar to death last year were exonerated by a trial court at Hapur recently, apparently on the basis of the statement of the family members of the deceased, stating that the policemen were not involved.[11] “Agar apradh karenge thok diye jayenge” is a statement attributed to the present Chief Minister of U.P.[12], leading to the police chief for the State of U.P, Mr O.P.Singh to say “Encounters are part of crime prevention”[13]. Similarly the encounter killings of four suspects in the rape and murder of a young veterinarian near Hyderabad was openly feted by politicians like former Chief Ministers of U.P. Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav [14]and a host of others. Unsurprisingly, such a course has found favour with other politicians who have even suggested following the “U.P. Model” in matter of encounter killings to weed out criminals if voted to power [15] Make no mistake – custodial death or a staged encounter is nothing short of cold blooded murder. What is most egregious is, that an ostensibly disciplined force – the police, openly flouts the law with the tacit and in many cases the open support of the powers that be –the administrationself-defence is the excuse which is offered by the police – a defence which is seldom true. Sadly, they get away with it, as now, in most cases, public opinion favours instant justice, which in turn is good for catching, votes. Custodial violence, unlike encounter killings, does not enjoy popular support, but mostly goes unpunished, as a complaint of such abuse is normally not given attention to by the police officers because of their ties to their brethren. What compounds the problem is the lack of direct evidence of torture. Further police records relating to custody and consequent investigation are often manipulated to help the accused policemen. The Law Commission in its 113th Report had suggested the insertion of Section 114B in the Evidence Act, which in effect was to provide that the court may presume that an injury to the deceased in custody was caused by the police officer having custody of that person during that period. Change of burden of proof was thus advocated. The Supreme Court in 1995 and then again in 1997 in D.K.Basu[16] had expressed the hope the government should give serious consideration to such a provision being inserted, but sadly no action has been taken in this regard. The current practise of booking the lowly constable and transferring the concerned sub-inspector or suspending him temporarily is an eye wash. Similarly, magisterial enquires in the face of no evidence or tampered evidence achieves little. Time has come to introduce provisions in the law, which would make senior officers who are in charge of the police station and the district, vicariously liable, where such atrocities occur. Such provisions may appear harsh, but murder (read -custodial death, including encounters), in police custody is no ordinary event. Fixing responsibility on higher officers will also ensure that they would stop following their political bosses blindly. To use the words of Justice Krishna Iyer “This Country has no totalitarian territory even within the walled world we call prison. Articles 14, 19 and 21 operate within the prisons….” -“….the state must re-educate the constabulary out of their sadistic arts and inculcate a respect for the human person –a process which must begin more by example than by percept if the lower rungs are really to emulate, then “….nothing inflicts a deeper wound on our constitutional culture than a state official running berserk regardless of human rights”[17] “When will wits, not fists, become a police kit”[18] , asked Justice Krishna Iyer. Methods and tools of investigation require urgent mending. The state would require investment in scientific investigation techniques, which entails huge expenditure in terms of money, but more importantly, political will. The onus clearly is on the legislature to intervene forthwith, for “the quality of a nation’s civilisation can be largely measured by the methods it uses in the enforcement of criminal law.”[19]Improving the justice delivery system however is low priority for Governments in India. The investigating agencies have allowed themselves to be tools in the hands of governments to settle political scores. The Constitutional Courts in India would once again have to take the lead by framing guidelines to fulfil the mandate of Articles 20, 21 and 22 of the Constitution of India. Some immediate measures ought to be taken, so as to ensure that the rule of law is preserved and the dignity of our citizens is not impaired in any manner. Presence of an advocate throughout the investigation must be made mandatory even though Section 41D of the CrPC only permits the accused to meet his advocate during investigation, but not throughout the investigation. Such a measure would go a long way in protecting the rights of accused, most of whom are not well versed with the law. Investigation, as a matter of law must now be video recorded. All enclosures at the police station must have cameras which in turn should be accessible and monitored by the central control room in each district. Any kind of physical torture (and not just third degree) must be prohibited. Even though the law with regard to use of force on the citizenry for dispersing any unlawful assembly, is pretty clear , when it provides for ” use as little force , and do as little injury to person or property , as may be consistent with dispersing the assembly and detaining such persons “[20], the police in India are habituated to use of excessive force as a matter of policy to quell democratically permitted dissent . They use force to inflict punishment on the streets , as a form of instant justice, bypassing the courts of law and treating them as redundant .It is difficult to believe that in doing so they are ignorant of the law . They obviously think that the law be damned. The law is violated with gay abandon, as they rest content in the thought that the rigours of the law are meant for the ordinary citizen, and they have the protection of the political class, who are above the law. Incidentally, India is in the company of nine countries such as Sudan , Burnei , Bahamas , Sao Tome and Principe , Angola , Comoros , Gambia and Palau who have chosen not to sign the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and other Cruel , Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment as reported by the Outlook Magazine. The Supreme Court of India in 1981, speaking through Justice Krishna Iyer in K.S.R.Dev[21]was conscious of the situation we are in today and had this to say “So long as an iron curtain divides the law set by the Constitution and lit by the Supreme Court from the minions of the states, so long shall this Court’s writ remain a mystic myth and harmless half-truth making law in the books and law- in- action distant neighbours. This shall not be” It is hoped that the Constitutional courts would once again stand up for the ordinary citizen by proactively ensuring that the iron curtain is removed, and the rule of law prevails.Views are personal only (Kavin Gulati – Senior Advocate , Soumya Gulati – Final Year student,Government Law College , Mumbai.)
