#72HRHOLD for Inalienable Personhood - Hourly Posts here

PERSONHOOD AWARENESS - 72-HOUR HOLD  from Friday, September 29th @ 5 PM EST to Monday, October 2nd @ 5 PM EST, 2017  'KEEP THE ATTENTION ON HUMAN RIGHTS'  If you are thinking that 72 hours is a big ask, that’s the point. You have things to do, people to see, calls to make. You lose your job. Your pets or plants die. Your kids get taken by social services. You lose sleep. You miss opportunities. Bills don’t get paid on time. You might or might not get back the life you left.  This happens every week to people who get labeled ‘mentally ill.’ A call is made to 911 by someone wanting help. The next thing you know, we are yanked out of our lives. The damage for many  – materially, socially, emotionally and spiritually - is irreparable.  So here’s the deal. Before you decide it’s ok for someone else to give up 72 hours of their life so you can feel safer, at least take the time to educate yourself on the facts.  Diagnostic Detention is Un-American   Imagine this.  It is the worst day of your life. You or someone else calls 911 looking for help. The police show up, tackle you to the floor, handcuff you and yank you out of your life. Maybe you return in a few days, maybe you never do.   1. There is no warrant  2. There is no probable cause  3. There is no police investigation into the actual facts of who did what to whom  4. There are no Miranda warnings. If you say anything it can be held against you.   5. There is no right against self-incrimination. If you say nothing it is held against you  6. There is no opportunity for bail  7. No formal statement of changes is required  8. You have no right to cross-examine the real life people who reported you as dangerous  9. You lose your freedom of speech. If you protest, you are likely to be tied down and  injected with anti-psychotics against your will.  10. You lose your freedom of belief. If you insist that you are sane, safe or in the right, it proves that you lack insight to your ‘illness’   11. There is no right to a speedy trial. You may be held for weeks (sometimes months) on a doctor’s say so.   12. If the government is wrong, you are not entitled to compensation  13. The hospital bills you for services you were forced to receive. You go bankrupt if you pay it. Your credit rating tanks if you don’t  14. Your spouse divorces you. You lose your kids.  If you didn’t want to kill yourself or someone else before, you probably do now. These are the painful facts of life if you are believed to be ‘mentally ill’ in the United States of America in 2017.

5 PM Eastern - Surprise!  Oops, we didn't tell you ...

  You came in on the weekend.  You have to wait for business hours for your hold to start.  Looks like you've been here since Friday.  But our regular staff doctors didn't start working until 8 AM this morning.  So, congratulations.  You've done 9 hours.  Only 63 more to go...

  1. Brava Sara! This is brilliant and right on! I am here listening and sharing... and waiting for what is to come in the next hour. Have been waiting for this 72-hour hold thing ever since you suggested it... glad to see you are doing it here. so much of what you wrote should be obvious to the people of the powers that be, but clearly it ain't so we have to take that power into our own hands and free ourselves. As Matt suggested, the suffering is real but the labels are not and they only add to the mental suffering. We all of us, including those at the top, need to break our chains or we are all enslaved.
