- "West Plains psychiatrist, Dr. William Cone, was found guilty in Lafayette County Circuit Court of six counts of sexual assault and 13 counts of deviate sexual assault on his patients, including performing oral sex on a 13-year-old boy. Two women said he gave them large amounts of psychotropic drugs and would do what he wanted, including performing sexual acts on him, because they were addicted and were afraid he would quit giving them the drugs..."
- "...It's often difficult to find information presenting a view differing from the Psychiatric community. These pages present the other view, one not motivated by profit, of the truth about shock therapy. While this viewpoint is totally opposite of what any shock doctor will tell you, the statistical and anecdotal evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of banning any form of shock treatment or electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). ..."--Ban Shock

Citizens for Higher Ethical Standards in Medicine
- "Contrary to the popular public conception, this happenstance is NOT a form of health care, but the result of a fraudulent system being granted police powers by the State. By calling the harmless 'insane', (who statistics prove to be no more violence-prone than the average citizen, unless hopelessly deranged by damaging psychiatric 'treatment'), dangerous and justifying their own existence by the 'need' to deal with that inflated 'danger', the mad-doctors themselves pose the greatest threat to liberty, property and democracy in our times."--Citizens for Higher Ethical Standards in Medicine
- "A San Francisco Superior Court jury decided earlier this month that psychiatrist Paul Lowinger abused Francine Rahn, a 43-year-old teacher. "I hope this verdict sends a message to other therapists that if they take advantage of their vulnerable patients, an American jury will stand up and make sure the patient is fully compensated," Hahn's lawyer, John Winer, said."--Psychiatric Tattler

Network Against Coercive Psychiatry
"...The Network is emerging at an historical juncture that constitutes a time of potential danger as well as opportunity. The danger lies in the continued expansion of psychiatric power and of the merger of the "mental health" system with the American government. This forbodes a social control apparatus as totalitarian as that forseen by George Orwell in 1984. In this case conformity to social norms would be enforced by mental health professionals playing the role of Big Brother. The opportunity lies in the possible development of a social movement against the mental health system. ..."

Foucalt Tribunal on the state of Psychiatry
- "We conclude that, being unwilling to renounce the use of force, violence and coercion, psychiatry is guilty of crimes against humanity: the deliberate destruction of dignity, liberty and life. Most of all through the legal category of "mental patient" which permits a total deprivation of human and civil rights and the laws of natural justice. ..."--Foucalt Tribunal on the state of Psychiatry
