The medical marijuana movement is in full swing. Slowly but surely, the rest of America is waking up to facts we’ve known for quite sometime – cannabis is a versatile plant with a host of practical uses and medicinal benefits. The cannabis plant owes its magical properties to a wide variety of active compounds. THC is the most well known. CBD, its closely related cousin, is steadily gaining a reputation for what it brings to the table.

What is CBD

Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a very unique cannabis component in that it lacks the psychoactive activity traditionally associated with THC. In short, it doesn’t produce euphoria or anything that can be considered a high. Instead, it is responsible for several of the medicinal qualities marijuana is so well known for.

Benefits of CBD

From promoting a good night sleep to treating a number of specific conditions, CBD is as diverse as the plant body it resides in. Following is a list of known CBD benefits:

Eliminates anxiety. CBD may not shoot you to the moon, but it works extremely well at treating anxiety. A proper dose of CBD can be very relaxing.
Combats inflammation. CBD has shown great promise at reducing inflammation. As you may know, inflammation can lead to hay fever, certain cancers, and several other debilitating diseases.

Antibacterial properties. An overplus of bad bacteria is a trigger for gum disease, heart disease, and other serious health issues. CBD acts as a potential lifesaver by slowing the growth of bad bacteria.

Encourages bone growth. Milk does a body good – so does cannabis when it comes to bone growth. In fact, CBD is showing tremendous potential as an alternative to the toxic medications prescribed for bone deficiencies.

Regulates blood sugar. Another area CBD has shown great promise in is its ability to lower blood sugar levels. As the benefits become more known, CBD-rich products could potentially become a godsend for the countless people who struggle with diabetes.
Treats seizures. CBD gained a lot of attention for its role in reducing epileptic seizures for one young patient. Since then, it has been highly sought after by parents seeking alternative treatment options for epilepsy.
Kills cancer cells. According to Cancer.org, THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids have been shown to slow and even kill the cells in certain types of cancer. Testimonials of patients using cannabis to effectively treat cancer are mounting rapidly.

How to Obtain CBD

By now, you’re probably curious to know about how to get your hands on CBD. You actually have a couple of options:

Cannabis flower: Since CBD is a naturally occurring cannabis compound, the flower is arguably the best source at your disposal. You can find it in any quality strain, though some varieties are richer in this resource than others. For example, Charlotte’s Web, Cannatonic, and Harlequin are some of the best known CBD-rich strains on the market.

Vaporizer oil: If you’re a fan of the Vaporizer phenomenon, Vaporizer juice may be the best way to get your dose of CBD. While the flavor spectrum isn’t as wide as what we’ve come to know as traditional e-juice, CBD-rich vape oil is taking off as a viable way to consume this amazing molecule.

Edibles: Remember, CBD lives in cannabis. This means you can obtain it by consuming classic edibles such as brownies and cookies as well as less assuming items the likes of gummies and other candies.

Other stuff: CBD is also being extracted into a plethora of consumer products. From sprays to topical oinments, it’s showing up everywhere these days.
At the end of the day, conventional wisdom tells us medical marijuana is at its most effective when all its active compounds are working together. Having said that, we are increasingly learning that when properly extracted and isolated, CBD alone can be incredibly effectively. If the classic form of cannabis is out of the question, CBD may be the next best option.

Duterte has killed several c-hildren and promised to kill his own child in drug war.

By Cody Derespina Published February 27, 2017 FoxNews.com

The foul-mouthed Philippines president who’s bragged about throwing criminals out of helicopters and gunning down drug offenders in the streets has a new target: children as young as 9, including his own son.

President Rodrigo Duterte, who has said he will “kill all” the country’s criminals, is among the backers of a bill that would lower the age of criminal responsibility from 15 to 9, The Washington Post reported on Sunday evening.

Duterte reportedly said last April he would murder his own son if the boy ever used drugs.

“In my country, there is no law that says I cannot threaten criminals,” Duterte said in October. “I do not care what the human rights guys say. I have a duty to preserve the generation. If it involves human rights, I don’t give a s---. I have to strike fear.”

Other children were in the cross hairs.

Express and Informed Consent
(See also Voluntary Admissions and Emergency Treatment Orders)
Competence to Consent
Q. Who is eligible to consent or refuse to consent to their own treatment?
Minors cannot make their own inpatient mental health treatment decisions; this is the
responsibility of their parent or guardian. Neither can persons with a court appointed
guardian or who have a health care surrogate or proxy currently making decisions for
them. Only adults who are consistently able to make well-reasoned, willful and knowing
decisions about their own mental health or medical care can consent, refuse consent, or
revoke consent to their own treatment.
Q. If a person arrives at a receiving facility for an involuntary examination is
cooperative and willing to take medications, is this sufficient to document
“express and informed consent”?
No. "Cooperative and willing" are helpful descrip
tors, but more important is competence
of the person to make such decisions. This is defined in the law as being able to make
well-reasoned, willful and knowing decisions about one's mental health and medical
care. Without competence, as defined here, no amount of cooperation or willingness is
sufficient. The standard under the Baker Act requires more than “implied consent”
because the person may have taken the medications prior to admission and/or is not
currently refusing the medications. “Med compliance” is a behavior, but doesn’t
necessarily reflect competence.
Q. Is it true that a non-psychiatrist physician, during the involuntary examination,
can determine competency? I think the answer is yes, but just need verification.
You are correct. A non-psychiatric physician can determine competency to consent to
treatment. No professional other than a physician can do so. Whether on voluntary or
involuntary status, the physician must certify that the person is able to make well-
reasoned, willful and knowing decisions about his/her health and mental health care –
the definition of competence to consent – before permitting the individual to consent to
treatment. All voluntary patients must be certified as “competent” within 24 hours of
admission and any persons on involuntary st
atus who are refusing examination but
allowed to consent to their own treatment must also be certified.
It’s important that the documentation in the cl
inical record reflects that the individual
maintains this competence as long as treatment is provided. If at any time the individual
displays statements or behaviors that suggest he/she isn’t any longer able to make such
well reasoned decisions, treatment can’t be continued except when imminent danger
has been documented (ETO) or a legally authorized substitute decision-maker is
designated to provide consent.
2
Q. Recently we had a question come up about a patient being able to sign legal
documents brought in by the family. The patient was not deemed incompetent by
our doctor, but was not here voluntarily either. Can the patient is able to sign
legally binding documents while inpatient in a mental health hospital or CSU?
It’s unclear what kind of legal documents are involved. Just because a person hasn't
been adjudicated incapacitated by a court, doesn't mean he/she is competent for various
purposes.
If the patient is on voluntary or involuntary status and has been allowed to provide
consent to his/her own treatment, a physi
cian would have had to document the person's
competence to provide express and informed
consent on a sustained basis (not just
some "window of lucidity"). This medical statement means that the person is able to
make well-reasoned, willful and knowing medical and mental health decisions.
If the person's clinical record has notes from nurses, social workers or other personnel
that reflect the person's judgment or insight was impaired at the, the legitimacy of any
consent would be questionable, even for treatment not to mention other legal
documents. One would question how the person would meet the acuity criteria for
inpatient psychiatric care and yet be able to pass the high threshold of competence to do
so.
If a person was being held involuntarily because of "refusal" instead of "unable to
determine the exam/placement was needed", it may be possible to overcome with
sufficient documentation a presumption of incapacity.
The person could later challenge any document signed at such a time and place due to
diminished capacity or perceived coercion, whether the documents are Advance
Directives, quit claim deeds, a will, powers of attorney, or any other legal document.
Q. If a person is admitted on involuntary examination status and the box on the
BA-52 form is checked 'refusing voluntary exam' – can the patient be capable of
providing consent to their psychotropic medications and treatments as long as
the staff notes that they appeared to be consistently able to make well-reasoned,
willful and knowing decisions about their treatment?
Yes. A person may refuse admission but may be competent to consent or refuse
consent to treatment.
Q. Can a person on involuntary status still be competent to consent or refuse
consent to their own treatment?
YES. The issue of competence to consent is considered separately from the placement
issue. If the person meets the criteria for involuntary examination or involuntary
placement but is capable of making well-reasoned, willful, and knowing decisions about
their medical or mental health, he or she may continue to consent, withhold consent, or
refuse consent to treatment.
3
A person on involuntary status may or may not be competent to consent to his or her
own treatment. If the person who initiated the involuntary examination noted on the form
that the person was unable to determine the exam was necessary, as opposed to
refusing the exam, the person must be presumed to be incompetent to consent to
treatment until determined by a physician to have such capacity.
Q. Does a physician need to complete Certification of Person’s Competence to
Provide Express and Informed Consent (Form #3104) if the patient is to be
discharged from involuntary status and our facility within 24 hours of admission,
or can s/he complete the 3111 only?
The Certification of Competence is used as follows:

If the person arrives on voluntary status and is released in less than 24 hours,
the 3104 form doesn’t need to be completed.

If the person arrives on either voluntary or involuntary status and consents
to/receives psychotropic medications, the 3104 form must be used even if the
person is released within 24 hours.

If the person arrives on involuntary status and is subsequently released either
within or outside the 24 hour window and regardless of whether the person has
been medicated, the 3111 or it’s equivalent must be completed.
Q. Does competency to consent to treatment have to be documented by a
physician before consent can be sought and treatment administered?
NO. Chapter 65E-5.170(1), FAC requires that as soon as possible, but in no event
longer than 24 hours from entering a designated receiving facility on a voluntary or
involuntary basis, each person shall be examined by the admitting physician to
determine the person's ability to provide express and informed consent to admission and
treatment.
This doesn't require that the examination or completion of the form be done prior to
administering psychotropic medications. However, the law is very clear that the person
must be able to provide express and inform
ed consent for any treatment rendered, after
full disclosure of all the legally required information.
With regard to adults on
voluntary
status, one can presume the person is competent to
consent to medications and other treatment prio
r to being certified by a physician as long
as staff notes that the person appears to be able to consistently make well-reasoned,
willful, and knowing decisions about his/her medical and mental health treatment.
However, at any time the person displays statements or behaviors that would lead one
to believe that he or she is not able to make well-reasoned, willful and knowing
decisions, the treatment must be discontinued until informed consent can be obtained
from a legally authorized person, unless an emergency treatment order is issued
because of imminent danger.
If a person is admitted on
involuntary
status and the block on the BA-52 form indicates
the person was unable to determine a voluntary examination was needed is checked, a
facility would have to presume the person is incompetent to consent to medications.

Information

In March 1998, the Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry issued its final report, which included the Consumer Bill of Rights and Responsibilities. The Commission was appointed by President Bill Clinton, and co-chaired by Donna Shalala, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The purpose of the Bill of Rights is:

To build up consumer confidence in the health care system, by making it easy for consumers to be involved in their own health care.
To strongly support the importance of a good health care provider and that of a good provider-patient relationship.
To emphasize and support the importance of the consumers' role in making sure they have rights and responsibilities with regard to health improvement.

The Consumer Bill of Rights was developed by the federal government. This has been used by many health plans, including the federal-government-sponsored health plans.

Consumer Bill of Rights

I. Information Disclosure

You have the right to receive accurate information you can understand about your health, treatments, health plan, providers, and health care facilities. If you speak another language, have a physical or mental disability, or just do not understand something, you will be helped so you can make informed health care decisions.

II. Choice of Providers and Plans

You have the right to choose your provider, within your health plan.

III. Access to Emergency Services

If you have severe pain, an injury, or sudden illness and you are concerned that you could be seriously ill, hurt, or could die, you have the right to get emergency services whenever and wherever needed, to be seen by a doctor and get services, even if you do not ask your health plan first, and you will not be charged a penalty.

IV. Participation in Treatment Decisions

You have the right to know all your treatment options, even if they are not covered by your health plan, and make decisions about your care. Parents, guardians, family members, or others that you choose can represent you if you cannot make your own decisions.

V. Respect and Nondiscrimination

The way people encode, process, remember and use information in social contexts in order to make sense of other people’s behaviors

Simplistically how you think about others and how that influences your behavior. People have the inherent desire to make sense of the world

Take mental shortcuts when trying to make sense of the world
Motivated Tactician v. Cognitive Miser

Motivated Tactician

flexible social thinkers who choose between multiple cognitive strategies (i.e., speed/ease vs accuracy/logic) based on their current goals, motives, and needs

Cognitive Miser

The act of preserving mental resources by employing mental strategies of social inference

Systematic strategies of social inference when...

There are time constraints

People experience cognitive overload

The situation is of lower importance

There is little information regarding the issue

The Naïve Scientist

The basis for attribution theory
Heider (1958)
People are motivated by two primary needs:
1) the need to form a coherent view of the world, and
2) the need to gain control over the environment
To satisfy these needs we act as naïve scientists, rationally and logically testing our hypotheses about the behaviour of others

According to Heider, people have a basic need to attribute causality because this ascribes meaning to our world, making it clear, definable, and predictable, thereby reducing uncertainty

The Locus of Causality

Internal (person) attribution
any explanation that locates the cause as being internal to the person (personality, mood, attitudes, abilities, effort)
External (situation) attribution
any explanation that locates the cause as being external to the person (actions of others, the nature of the situation, luck)

Stability and Controllability

Stable vs unstable causes
permanent and lasting vs temporary and fluctuating
Controllable vs uncontrollable causes
extent to which causes can be influenced by others versus the extent to which they are random
Both independent from both internal/external dimension

Together, these three dimensions appear to be the main way people explain events (Meyer & Koebl, 1982) in individualist and collectivist countries (Hau & Salili, 1991)

The Self

A symbolic construct
It reflects
consciousness of our own identity
awareness that we exist as an individual, separate from other individuals

Self-awareness
A psychological state in which people are aware of their traits, feelings and behaviours
The Development of Self-awareness

Lewis and Brooks (1978)
Put a spot of rouge on the nose of babies and then put them in front of a mirror
Babies between 9 months and 2 years treated mirror image as another child, showing no interest in the spot on their nose
Around 18 months, children recognised that the reflection was themselves

Neurological Basis of Self- awareness
Private vs Public Self-awareness

Private self-awareness
Evoked when …
looking in a mirror
experiencing physiological arousal
Public self-awareness
Evoked when …
giving a presentation
being photographed or filmed

Consequences of Private Self-awareness

A. Intensified emotional response
B. Clarification of knowledge
C. Adherence to personal standards of behaviour

Participants read aloud positive or negative statements.
Participants who looked in the mirror during this task – making them privately self aware – became more extreme in their emotional responses

Example: Scheier and Carver(1977)
Consequences of Public Self-awareness

A. Evaluation apprehension
B. Loss of self-esteem
C. Adherence to social standards of behaviour

Self-consciousness

Personality trait
Describes the extent to which an individual is chronically aware of their traits, feelings and behaviour

Self-consciousness

Privately self-conscious
Experience more intense emotions
Act in line with personal beliefs
More accurate self-perceptions (Mullen & Suls, 1982)
Publicly self-conscious
Adhere to group norms
Avoid embarrassing situations (Froming et al., 1990)
More concerned with their appearance

Organization of Self-knowledge

Self schemas:
how we expect ourselves how think, feel and behave in a particular situation
Self schemas become active in relevant situations and provide us with information regarding how – based on our beliefs of who we are – we should respond

Each of us hold a complex self-concept made up of a number of discrete self-schemas
Having complex and varied self-schemas is beneficial for us, buffering us from negative events and failings in our life

We are self-schematic on a particular self-schema if it is highly embedded in our self-concept (Markus, 1977)

Theories of Self-comparison

1. Control theory of self-regulation (Carver & Scheier, 1981)
We examine the self to assess whether we are meeting our personal goals

Limitations – Baumeister et al. (1998)

Hungry participants were split into 2 groups
Eat only radishes
Eat only chocolate cookies
Participants who had previously had to exert self-control –by eating only radishes and ignoring the chocolate – were less able to persist on a subsequent problem solving task
Suggests we have limited cognitive resources at our disposal to self-regulate

2. Self-discrepancy theory (Higgins, 1987)
Actual self
Ideal self
Ought Self
People are motivated to ensure that their actual self matches their ideal and ought self
The greater the discrepancy between the actual self and a self guide, the greater the psychological discomfort

Theories of Individual-Comparison

1.Social comparison theory (Festinger, 1954)
We learn how to define the self by comparing ourselves to others
We make two different sorts of comparisons
Upward comparisons
Downward comparisons

Theories of Individual-comparison

2.Self-evaluation maintenance model (Tesser, 1988)
When someone is more successful than us, it can have a negative effect on our self-esteem
How do we deal with this?
Self-reflection
Upward social comparison
Several strategies …

Self-esteem Maintenance Strategies…
Theories of Group Comparison

Social identity approach (Tajfel & Turner, 1979)
There are 2 important aspects of the self
Personal identity
Social identity
Context dependent

Jetten, Spears and Manstead (1996)

Assigned participants to minimal groups
Asked to distribute money between members of their own group and members of another group
Group norm manipulated – fairness ‘strategy’ or ‘discrimination’ strategy
Participants were strongly influenced by the norms of their own group

Self-esteem

The evaluative component of the self concept
A person’s subjective appraisal of himself or herself as intrinsically positive or negative to some degree (Sedikides & Gregg, 2003)
Our level of self-esteem can vary from time to time, depending on the context we find ourselves in
But there are also chronic differences in self-esteem

Consequences of Low Self-esteem

Mood regulation
Wood et al. (2003)
People with low self-esteem dampen positive feelings
Heimpel et al. (2002)
Following failure, people with low self-esteem make less goals and plans to improve their mood

Consequences of Self-esteem

Narcissism
Extremely high self-esteem
Unstable/fragile
Reliant on validation from others
Positive characteristics: Initially likeable, extraverted, unlikely to suffer from depression, perform well in public
Negative characteristics: Crave attention, overconfident, lack empathy (Young and Pinksy, 2006)

Bushman and Baumeister (1998)

Participants wrote an essay which was marked by ‘another participant’
Praise vs threat conditions
Competitive reaction task, in which the loser receives a blast of noise
Positive relationship between narcissism and aggression (measured by the intensity of noise delivered to other participant)

Self-motives

Three self-motives
Self assessment
Self-verification
Self-enhancement
Which motivation is most important to us?
Self-enhancement (Sedikides, 1993)

Strategies to Enhance the Personal Self

1. Self-affirmation theory
We respond to threatened self-esteem by publicly affirming positive aspects of the self (e.g., Steele, 1975)

Strategies to Enhance the Personal Self

2. Self-serving attribution bias
Successes attributed to internal characteristics
Failures attributed to external characteristics
Memory for self-enhancing information (Mischel et al., 1975)

Strategies to Enhance the Social Self

People also derive a positive self-image from their group memberships
Group members are motivated to hold a positive collective identity
Low status group members:
Join a higher status group
Social change strategies
Social creativity strategies
Dis-identification

The "war on drugs" has been used to seize legal firearms, plant drugs on the victims of violent crimes after knocking them out, kidnapping people from their property, illegally searching people by claiming they consent, torturing them after they are handcuffed and filing charges which destroy lives. The worst of these sadistic cops work with other violent criminals in Tarpon Springs Florida.

Last year I got a new IT Support Position. We moved to Tarpon Springs, three blocks from our Greek Orthodox Church. The location appeared to be perfect and I loved my new job. The contract allowed me to help people by troubleshooting with the skills I enjoyed. This was a contract to hire. My salary would increase by more than 70 percent after the first month. A contract to hire allowed to to utilize my Bachelors degree in an enjoyable application. I was very happy because my job allowed me to help dozens of people on a daily basis. Most of them were restaurant managers. I also helped a lot of their employees and customers.

I was already training new employees to use VNC, Menu Editor and Solar Wiinds. I was scheduled to transfer from being a contracted to a full time and direct employee within a few days

Within a few minutes of returning from work on September 20th. My neighbor Samantha started pounding on my door very loud and hard. I rushed over and opened the door.

****Note****

We had never met because she works night shifts at a doughnut shop and shooting range. She introduced herself as Samantha, my neighbor. My landlord had told me my new neighbor was named Samantha and was looking for a security job. I had been doing security full time, before starting my IT contract. I had switched to part time security, as I looked for someone to take over my post.

Samantha told me she heard noises from the storage area below my unit. She indicated she was scared and asked me to come with her to investigate. I didn't bother putting a bullet in the chamber of a weapon. I put my smallest compact inside a pocket, rather than carrying it in my hand or harness. I was not holding it because I thought Samantha was trustworthy, yet paranoid.

The lock to my storage area was broken at this time so I didn't use this area. I had worked very late, so it was already past 2am. There were no working lights in this storage area. I couldn't hear anything so I walked right inside the slider. I was knocked out by Mathew Winters when he hit me in the head with a metal pipe by surprise. My keys, phone, wallet and gun were missing when I regained consensuses. I asked if someone could call the police, flagged them down and told them I was mugged.

Samantha must have been friends with Officers Evans Trinidad and Larry Bird. She told them, I attacked Mathew Winters for no reason "with fists clenched" before punching him in the face several times, according to Evans Trinidad's sworn statement. Evans Trinidad sites a scratch on Mathew's leg and a tear in his shirt as proof that I punched Mathew Winters in the face. Trinidad goes on to write Mathew Winters is my neighbor and Samantha was his girlfriend. I later found out Samantha claims Mathew was never her boyfriend and my landlord said Mathew Winters was prohibited from the property because of his record of theft.

As I was explaining I was mugged on my own property. Larry Bird and another Tarpon Officer body slammed me. One of them put his foot or knee on the back of my head to push it into the ground, as my arms were twisted so hard I thought they were broken. Larry Bird was asking me if I had anything on me as the pressure on my head and body increased. The officers who assaulted me are Michael Trinidad, Andrew Warwick, Jose Yourgules, and Christopher Lemmons's
I remember being lifted up in handcuffs and dragged towards an ambulance. Larry slammed me face first into the driveway, as soon as I asked why I was under arrest. My arms were bound behind my back so my head hit the ground harder than before. By the time I regained consciousness I was strapped to a frame being lifted into an ambulance. The medic asked Larry Bird if he wanted to ride along. Larry Bird smiled and said he was going to enjoy this, as he looked at me. Larry Bird laughed and joked about me getting beat up by a girl when I told him I was the victim of an armed robbery. He told me I owe him a new pair of pants because he tore them while "body-slamming" me. He asked me to give him another chance to body slam me, even though my hands and legs where chained so I couldn't move. He verbally abused and threatened me the entire way to the hospital. Florida Hospital is the name of the filthy torture business they took me.

They demanded I urinate in a cup as I was bound to the bed. I was not able to urinate because I felt dehydrated and the restraints made moving impossible. They told me a needle would be inserted into my penis if I didn't urinate in the cup without a drink when I asked if I could have some water. They showed me a needle and I made the mistake of telling them I hate needles. Chris started digging it into my arm. He created a bloody mess before inserting it into a vein very slow and painfully. I

I was injected with a liquid which made my arm and body feel very hot. This heating sensation continued to increase until lost consciousnesses. I woke up the next morning to see another officer. This one did not torture me like Larry Bird, but he did refuse my requests for water without any mercy. I was told I would not be allowed to drink any water until I arrived at Jail. I was so thirsty and uncomfortable being tied down, I was looking forward to being transferred to jail. He was telling the truth when he said it would take several hours for a transport vehicle to arrive.

Trinidad claims to have found 8 illegal drugs on me even though he also claims I gave him consent to search him because I "have nothing else on me". I'm not sure if these drugs were planted by Mathew and Samantha during the armed robbery, or the police who caused even more damage. Several of these were felonies, so I was strip searched but the officers at Jail were professional. They noticed I was bleeding from my face and had bruises everywhere, so I was transferred to the medical section after seeing the doctor.

The doctor in the medical department told me he suspected my brain could be swelling. I was transferred to Bay-care after my family borrowed over $1,000 as a down payment of my &10,000 bound. Cat scans confirmed my brain was swollen but this was the least of my concerns. The beatings I received from Mathew Winters, Tarpon Officer Larry Bird and the arresting officers before and after being hand cuffed caused permanent damage to my spine and left leg. I was not allowed to be prescribed any pain killers because of the false drug charges.

Even though I had access to a phone at jail and Bay Care, I didn't have my IT contractor or employers phone number. By the time I was released, I had missed three days of work. The Tarpon police refused to return my keys, wallet, ID or phone for a fourth day to ensure I was terminated from my IT contract.

I have medical records proving I was the victim of brutal assaults on 9-20-2016. Officer Micheal Trinidad swears under oath that a rip in Mathew Winter's shirt and a scratch on his leg collaborate Samantha and Mathew Winter's claim that I attacked Mathew Winters with my fist clenched and punched him in the face with any cause. The Tarpon police never bothered explaining why these criminals were trespassing in my home, I was bleeding from the face when I told them I was mugged. They simply claim I reached for my "keys or gun" in the backyard. Trinidad goes on to claim I gave him permission to search me on my own property. He said the reason I consented to the search was I claimed I had "nothing else" on me. He then claims to have found 8 different bags of residue ranging from Oxycontin to Amoxicillin and a bag of tobacco laced with THC and an opiate I had never heard of.

My brakes stopped working on the way back from dropping of my keys to my former contractor. I suspect Mathew Winters damaged my breaks while I was in custody because the person I bought the car from had just spent $600 on a checkup a few days prior and I had only owned the car a couple days before this took place. The car was completely wreaked in the crash. Mathew Winters and Samantha vanished by the time I got out of the hospital.

The new neighbor who moved into the unit Samantha used to live in use to work for the Justice Department. He sent me the follow text regarding the women who moved into Unit 101 A Cypress Street (the unit I had lived in at the time the police attacked me a few days after I moved back to Palm Harbor:

"Another incident last night, around 3AM, that could shed light on what's going on.

I was taking out recycling. Girl from next door was outside, in a state of emotional distress. Talking to someone in a white SUV or Truck with camper top.

Her comments something to the effect of: You don't understand. He keeps beating the shit out of me, and I keep getting arrested."

I am assuming that driver of vehicle was some sort of official; however, it was too dark to determine.

Using a flashlight, they reviewed some paperwork, wrote down some notes, and appeared to be in consult with someone.

When they drove away, I noticed no official markings on the vehicle; however, Tarpon Springs does have unmarked vehicles.

Just thought you should know.

Take care. "

I called him to learn more and he told me the new female neighbor was being stalked by a Tarpon Law enforcement officer who had access to her Unit. He heard several violent fights and arguments. The female was beaten by the Tarpon Officer, who he suspected was a boyfriend of hers on a regular basis. She was arrested and spent several days in jail each time the police arrived.

This indicates the criminals who beat and mugged me, and the officers who responded by torturing me, lying and planting drugs on me got away with everything.

I was not able to afford an attorney so I had to rely on a public defender for a case which carried 11 years in prison. He told me the mugging and fact that I was knocked out three times would not effect the case. He refused to request finger prints on the metal bar which was used to beat me, the bags of residue the police claim to have found on me, my wallet, keys or gun. He asked me if I wanted to defend myself when I asked for a jury trail. He informed me the only fact that would be considered in my trail would be the fact that the bags of residue were found on my possession. The lack of my finger prints, presence of other people's finger prints and my lack of consent would not be admissible in the case.

He told me all charges would be dropped if I accept a PTI deal for 16 months. He didn't mention the fact that public records would indicate this was an admission of guilt, I had spend 1000 dollars on fines, inform my part time employer I'm on PTI, do 30 hours of community service or waive the right to sue the police.

I wish I had died during the attacks because my life ever since this attack has been a hopeless nightmare and there might have been a chance of justice if I hadn't survived the attack. I now live in constant pain, poverty and debt. The criminals who mugged me have vanished the police who tortured me, planted drugs on me and lied under oath are still serving in the Tarpon Police force. My Christian faith and knowledge of the negative effects my suicide would have on my family prevent me from taking my own life. I have desired death since my life was destroyed by these criminals, Tarpon Police and Florida Hospital.

There is nothing worse than the fear of torture that comes with the knowledge the police and their criminal friends can get away with anything. I have lost my right to bear arms, employment and a doctor thanks to the Tarpon Police and the criminals they conspire with. This attack took place a few days after I published one of Hillary's emails on Facebook and accused her or corruption. I advise you to avoid criticizing establishment politicians unless you live with a well armed militia.

Introduction
Initially released as an online novel and later published by KADOKAWA, this popular story will finally be adapted into a television anime! It is a little girl with blond hair, blue eyes, and translucent skin who stands on the frontline. She flies in the sky, shoots down enemies relentlessly, and commands the force. Her name is Tanya Degurechaff. In the midst of an aggravating war, she makes great achievements one after another by making best use of her own wit and pursing efficiency uncompromisingly, and eventually she emerges as a flight witch navigator that the empire is proud of. A genuine fantasy of military history with the smell of gunpowder smoke has just begun!

Story
In June 1923 of the "unity calendar," Tanya Degurechaff —a youth with blond hair and blue eyes— works hard on the training at the third patrolling line in Norden battle field of the northern military district as a part of her service in a military unit, which is the final curriculum of the imperial military academy she belongs to. The training would have been the first step for her illustrious career as a flight witch navigator and she was supposed to complete it without any problem. However, the situation takes an unexpected turn. Stemming from the cross-border violation by the Entente Allies, war breaks out between the empire and Entente Allies. Due to the transition to wartime, she is assigned to an observation duty. However, a surprise attack by the Entente Allies forces Tanya to face the situation where she has to fight against the enemy witch troop by herself. They are so vastly outnumbered that she has no way of defending herself until her allies arrive. Even so, running away from there could only lead her to the hopeless circumstance where the death penalty is inevitable for her sin of deserting under enemy fire. In order to survive at any risk and appeal to the top of the organization that she has tried her best, she intends to launch an operation. What will happen to her?
