Report & Op-Ed | Ramola D | September 14, 2023, Updated September 19, 2023
A “Community Policing and Behavioral Health Advisory Council” meeting was held online in Massachusetts yesterday–news about which remains to be further reported locally, little can be found reporting these meetings.
Such meetings–and such a council–have apparently been held and existed for a while, as listings at the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health note.
Not exactly reported in Boston newspapers, the Council itself was apparently set up in 2018 after a bill requiring the establishment of a Behavioral Health Promotion and Prevention Commission, presented in 2017-2018 to the State of Massachusetts House and Legislature, was seemingly transformed into a Resolution and thence a Session Law which was passed in 2020: House No. 4866; Chapter 253: An Act Relative To Justice, Equity And Accountability In Law Enforcement In The Commonwealth.
The Council itself refers its Legal Authority to an expanded provision in extant Mental Health laws while also calling on the Act so created (above) which purports to stand for justice and accountability but which clearly requires further scrutiny on all fronts: M.G.L. Chapter 19, Section 25(e); https://malegislature.gov/Laws/SessionLaws/Acts/2020/Chapter253
[Disclaimer: This writer is just beginning to examine the Mental Health landscape in Massachusetts law and praxis and will revisit this section further post exploration of the history of creation of these laws which seem to be in use in Massachusetts but which surely point to regressive dystopia no-one in Massachusetts (educated, aware, with children, with parents, with families, single, old, young, elderly, newborn) could possibly want. Is Massachusetts on the Leading Edge of UnBrave New World here…? Another subject to explore.]
A lot of disparate news in Boston however over the past couple years on the subjects of community policing, “crisis intervention,” “behavioral health,” and “substance abuse disorders” point to a growing interest in further stratifying and expanding an already questionable and over-reaching field.
Bringing together executives in State Government from Health and Human Services, Public Safety and Security, Mental Health, city Police Chiefs, and “consumers of Behavioral Health services” the Community Policing and Behavioral Health Advisory Council is apparently keen (as per published agendas) to meet regularly, offer public meetings, discuss police reform in relation to mental health, and steadily advance the agenda spelled out in the bill overseeing its creation, while the distributed Centers–Crisis Intervention Team-Training and Technical Assistance Center (CIT-TTAC) associated with it appear focused on transforming police officers into “crisis”-fixated mental health professionals–surely something police officers themselves do not want.
Not merely is there an emphasis on training law enforcement on different perceived aspects of the mental -health-officer nexus presumed, there is clear evidence here that police teams are being trained to force people labeled “mentally ill” or “in crisis” into “treatment,” as for instance in the interest of the Center in “providing technical assistance to cities and towns by establishing collaborative partnerships between law enforcement and human services providers that maximize referrals to treatment services.”
Crisis intervention inside the Mental Health creation paradigm within the urban scape is also a focus of the closely-named and older Community Oriented Policing Programs at the Department of Justice, who appear to have transitioned lately into openly acknowledging intent to transform community responses into mental health crises in this guide–perhaps a slip in phrasing, still, an oddly evocative one for all who have witnessed or experienced the avid crisis-creation of such teams: Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Programs: A Best Practice Guide for Transforming Community Responses to Mental Health Crises.
Subjects to keep an eye on and pursue further in reportage, this long-term marrying of law enforcement to mental health becomes especially concerning in light of how children, youth, young adults, employees at any workspot, elders, or indeed any one are being perceived today–when any “behavior” exhibited can be read as a “symptom” of crisis, impending crisis, or some DSM-manufactured “disorder” which police and EMS are now being trained to fall over backwards to prevent.
Policing Behavior Cannot Really Be Called Health–& What Kind of Technology is Being Used?
In an age of rampant electronic warfare, cognitive warfare, and undisclosed use of radiative, acoustic, vibrational technologies developed by the Department of Defense and intelligence agencies which can and do access people remotely and produce distinct and deleterious bio-effects, none of us can remain sanguine in the face of this encroachment.
Community policing has always been a problematic construct, post Patriot-Act with the rise of “gangstalking” or co-opted social harassment; today that construct is being turned silently into a much larger hold on our communities.
Much that is secret and not spoken of is kept sheathed by these terms–yet as more and more people are harmed all around us, we need to question all aspects of “behavioral health,” not blindly accept it as a new norm we all need to be shaped by. Fixations on “wellness” and “well-being”–now to be ensured by police and Public Safety–and how exactly?–need questioning.
Community Behavioral Health Promotion and Prevention Commission in Massachusetts
Newly created, in 2018, while laws, commissions, and statutes have suddenly proliferated on the books, all aimed at control, hierarchizing, and disappearance of freedom, independent critical thinking, and creative expression, a very special Commission in Massachusetts promises to force behavior modification on populations of every kind, from children to adults to elderly, all in the name of Mental Health.
Backdrop to the Community Policing and Behavioral Health Advisory Council–set up in 2018 as noted above–which brings Government and Police into communities, the Community Behavioral Health Promotion and Prevention Commission brings Health and Human Services together with Courts and Mental Health, inclusive of Substance Use Disorder, into the suddenly enlarged realm of Behavioral Health, no doubt soon to openly include Psychiatry, Neuroscience, Neuropsychiatry as maestros of human deliverance right at the very top.
All this while populations of every kind are indeed being rained on with energy-weapon and technology testing, operations, and aerosols, which local “authorities” will not acknowledge as ongoing–open channel to bringing in Mental Health, Behavioral Health, Community Care into universities, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, hospitals, police stations, prisons, stores, restaurants, hotels, motels, swimming pools, community centers, devised by those who seem to have written themselves out of this equation–yet cannot, if “statutes” and “Acts” are to be kept by all.
(Excerpts above from the Legal Authority named above.)
Community Behavioral Health Centers have now popped up all over Massachusetts, while a “Network of Care” links Behavioral Health providers with communities, and community centers– where mental health “patients” treated to 24/7 surveillance by tired “mental health counselors” playing prison guard are secretly, continuously treated as wanting, and less-than, and deficit–take on comforting names like “clubhouses.”
“Crisis Intervention” and “Trauma-Informed Care”: Creating Crisis, Creating Trauma
“Crisis Intervention” is more than nominally problematic–and while Boston Police seem to have drawn up a system of protocols to run, essentially, trauma on people–children and families, mothers and fathers– as this discussion of Section 12s points to, this is so patently an unacceptable normalizing of trauma and crisis-creation that all in Massachusetts and in the USA should step forward to further explore and act to end this travesty. Section 12s, invidious as written, hubristic and terroristic–as this writer has experienced, written about, and will write further about–are being used fraudulently in Massachusetts and should be abolished.
In communities, police given labels of “mental health professionals” act as “co-response,” this graduating to “embedded clinicians” with police, as a South Shore Mental Health brochure (below) advertises; in schools, they are now being trained to act as “school resource officers” given training in Adolescent development: if parents haven’t seen this yet, they may want to know children are being policed (in what numbers?) into mental health and, it appears, “crisis intervention” in school, in the absence of parent presence.
Remote Biometric Recognition
Worse, it appears laws enacted in 2020 are projecting a complete takeover of human beings through the monitoring of facial expression, gait, to infer and record emotion, and a distinct intent to use “behavioral health” against people, including police.
While indeed emotion, expression, gait, facial contours can all be affected by energy technologies, and have been reported by hundreds of people unlawfully targeted and beta-tested with these technologies, including this writer.
And the casual insertion of “remote biometric recognition” is hardly the way to surface police use of energy-weapon technologies using 5G, AI, remote-access surveillance inclusive of audio, video, MilDec to acquire same, and the deceptive use of nanotechnology as well to shape or re-form faces.
Uniting Public Safety, Mental Health, and Community Services
The number of mental health and law enforcement coalitions and joint services increasing steadily nationwide seems to be avidly pushed for today –and has been earlier–by the Department of Justice and police associations, such as the IACP–the International Association of Chiefs of Police–which advertises the “One Mind” campaign bringing together Public Safety, Mental Health, and Community Services:
To what extent is this a legitimate endeavor? To what extent are the figures cited by these campaigns credible?
A key to this conundrum might just be the fact that all or nearly all those reporting being unlawfully targeted with energy weapons technologies–for decades in some cases, multiple years in some cases– have been unlawfully labelled “mentally ill” along with a whole lot of other populations mislabeled, miscast, and misread as such–further subjects to explore.
This report from 2006 from the Department of Justice’s COPS (Community Oriented Policing Services) program “People with Mental Illness” illustrates the dangers of policing mental illness–when mental illness itself is being invented and falsely attributed to hundreds of thousands. 2006 is also when weapons-testing on Americans was announced by an Air Force secretary, Michael Wynne.
And “crowd-control situations” is not the only circumstance in which such weapons-testing–an eternal shame to America and all nations which have followed in our footsteps here–has taken place, harming civilians and veterans both: matters which must and should be widely known.
This subject–and the current modalities of it–will continue to be covered at this site. No-one is safe when deceiving and criminal actions of mislabeling for profit and repression are taken against people in the holy name of Justice, Safety, Health, and Community.
