Los Angeles Juvenile Hall Forced Estrogen Shots on Teen Boy for His Behavior


A lawsuit claims that a 16-year old boy was forced to take estrogen shots at Eastlake Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles after he was diagnosed with “oppositional defiant disorder” (ODD). The suit alleges that he developed gynecomastia, a condition that causes males to grow enlarged breasts due to a higher-than-normal level of estrogen. His parents say they were never informed about his ODD or notified that he would be receiving treatment, which violated their parental rights. A psychiatry professor at UCLA said, “Estrogen is not a treatment for ODD. I can’t be more emphatic about that.” -GEG

A 16-year-old boy was detained at Eastlake Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles and given estrogen for a behavioral disorder, causing him to develop breasts, according to a lawsuit.

The suit was filed against doctors Danny Wang and David Oh and the County of Los Angeles on behalf of the boy, who was diagnosed in June 2019 with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) two days after he was detained at Eastlake Juvenile Hall. Samples showed that he had “elevated levels of testosterone.”

The boy was prescribed 30 doses of estrogen “without obtaining his or his parents’ informed consent,” according to the lawsuit.

Estrogen are hormones that aid in sexual and reproductive development in women and are found in lower levels in men, according to Live Science.

The boy was given 13 doses of estrogen and developed gynecomastia, which is enlarged breast issue, according to the suit. The lawsuit says his parents had not been informed about his ODD or notified that he would be receiving treatment. The boy tried to refuse to take the estrogen due to feeling “increasingly terrible, miserable, and ill” and was eventually taken off the medication.

Estrogen is not a treatment for ODD. I can’t be more emphatic about that,” James McGough, a professor of clinical psychiatry at UCLA told The Los Angeles Times. “You won’t find a reference anywhere that supports the use of estrogen for ODD.”

North Carolina Town Council Votes to Pay Reparations to Black Residents


North Carolina: The Ashville City Council voted 7-0 to pay reparations to Black residents and issued a formal apology “for its participation in and sanctioning of the enslavement of Black people”. City councilman Keith Young, one of two African American members of the body and the measure’s chief proponent, said, “Hundreds of years of Black blood spilled that basically fills the cup we drink from today.” Retribution for the Asheville’s Black population will come in the form of direct funds to programs that are said to increase minority home ownership, business ownership, and improving education and neighborhoods. -GEG

Asheville, a small city in western North Carolina, has voted to pay reparations to Black residents, as the US continues to grapple with stark racial inequality.

The Asheville city council voted 7-0 in favor of issuing what the city considered reparations, issuing a formal apology “for its participation in and sanctioning of the enslavement of Black people”.

“Hundreds of years of Black blood spilled that basically fills the cup we drink from today,” said city councilman Keith Young, one of two African American members of the body and the measure’s chief proponent.

As part of the resolution, city leaders in Asheville have also called on North Carolina and the federal government to provide funding for reparations. The “resulting budgetary and programmatic priorities” will include “strategies to grow equity and generational wealth, closing the gaps in healthcare, education, employment and pay, neighborhood safety, and fairness within criminal justice”.

“It is simply not enough to remove statutes,” said Young of the city council. “Black people in this country are dealing with issues that are systemic in nature”.

Some supporters of federal legislation to atone for US slavery have called out the city’s measure, however, questioning it being labeled reparations considering they are typically made via direct cash payments to individuals. Instead, retribution for the Asheville’s Black population will come in the form of direct funds to programs designed to increase minority home ownership, business ownership, and improving education and neighborhoods instead.

“Piecemeal reparations taken singly or collectively at those levels of government cannot meet the debt for American racial injustice,” William Darity Jr, a professor of public policy at Duke University in Durham, told the New York Times.

Suspect Accused of Attacking NYPD Officers Is Released Without Bail


Quran Campbell is accused of striking NYPD Police Chief Monahan who tried to arrest him after Campbell had punched two other officers. Campbell was arraigned on assault charges and granted supervised release under the new criminal justice laws. A second man, Banks Shaborn, 25, was charged with hitting the same lieutenant, Richard Mack multiple times in the face, which resulted in both of his orbital bones being broken. Shaborn had a Taser and a folding knife in his shoe, and was held on $10,000 bail. A spokesman for the Sergeants Benevolent Association said, “If the mayor were doing his job properly, we wouldn’t have these issues. If the DAs were prosecuting the laws, we wouldn’t have these issues. What we are seeing right now is chaos in the city of New York, and the victims are minorities.” -GEG

The Bronx man who was arrested after punching NYPD Chief Terence Monahan and two other officers during protests on the Brooklyn Bridge Wednesday has been released without bail.

Quran Campbell, 25, is accused of striking the highest-ranking uniformed cop several times in the face as Monahan tried to arrest him after Campbell had reportedly punched another NYPD officer and lieutenant near the Manhattan approach to the bridge, the New York Post reported.

Campbell was arraigned on assault charges in Manhattan criminal court and was granted supervised release.

A second Bronx man, Banks Shaborn, 25, was also arraigned Thursday after allegedly clocking the same lieutenant, Richard Mack, of the department’s Strategic Response Group, multiple times in the face during the scuffle.

As a result of the battering, Mack had to be taken to the hospital where it was discovered that both of his orbital bones were broken. He also needed 12 stitches on his face after the melee. Monahan said he suffered some bruises and jammed fingers, but was otherwise fine.

As police made the arrest, they recovered a Taser from Shaborn’s pocket as well as a folding knife from his shoe.

Shaborn, who faces assault and criminal possession charges, was held on $10,000 bail.

Kentucky Couple Who Refused to Sign Isolation Order Were Placed Under House Arrest


Radcliffe, Kentucky: Elizabeth Linscott took the test because she wanted to visit her grandparents, but she tested positive for the coronavirus. She and her husband refused to sign a self-isolation order, and have now been placed under house arrest and wear ankle monitors. Linscott said the health department emailed her a form to sign that said she would check in daily, self isolate and let officials know if she has to be treated at the hospital. She refused because she was worried that she may have an emergency.

Elizabeth Linscott of Radcliff told news outlets she was tested July 11 for COVID-19 because she wanted to visit her grandparents and received a positive result the next day. Linscott said the health department emailed her a form to sign that said she would check in daily, self isolate and let officials know if she has to be treated at the hospital.

The form said the isolation order is to “prevent the introduction, transmission and spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus in this state.”

Linscott said she declined to sign because of one sentence: “I will not travel by any public, commercial or health care conveyance such as ambulance, bus, taxi, airplane, train or boat without the prior approval of the Department of Public Health.”

“I could not comply to having to call the public health department prior if I had an emergency or I had to go pick something up for my child or myself as a necessity and could not wait,” Linscott said.

When she declined to sign the form she said she was told the case would be escalated and on July 16, Linscott said she and her husband were placed under house arrest with ankle monitors.

Trump Sent Federal Troops into Portland to Stop Riots that Have Raged for 50 Days

Federal troops were deployed to Portland, in its seventh week of nightly riots. An Antifa/ BLM mercenary from Texas, Jacob Michael Gaines, was charged with assaulting a federal officer. Mercenaries broke into the police union’s headquarters and set it on fire while others attacked the courthouse. Federal troops are using tear gas and are making arrests. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler says President Trump is using Portland for political gain and is endangering people because the troops are escalating tension. Governor Kate Brown demanded that the federal troops withdraw.

The US Attorney for the Oregon District requested an investigation of masked, camouflaged federal officials without identification badges who are arresting rioters in Portland. The agents are unidentified because the mercenaries have target officers and their families. Department of Homeland Security personnel were video recorded arresting rioters and putting them in unmarked SUVs. US Customs and Border Protection admitted to being one of the agencies involved. The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon sued Homeland Security over the arrests. -GEG

The US Attorney for the Oregon District on Friday requested an investigation into masked, camouflaged federal authorities without identification badges who are arresting protesters in Portland.

The request is aimed specifically at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel who have been captured on various videos arresting protesters and putting them in unmarked SUVs.

Demonstrators in Portland have been protesting racial inequality and police brutality for the last 50 nights, US Attorney Billy J. Williams said in a statement. Federal authorities have protected the Mark O. Hatfield US Courthouse and, at times, interaction between protesters and law enforcement has gotten violent. Last weekend, one protester was seriously injured after the man was shot in the head with impact munition.

Oregon’s governor and Portland’s mayor demanded the troops be withdrawn and a US senator joined them in condemning the arrests.

“Authoritarian governments, not democratic republics, send unmarked authorities after protesters,” tweeted US Sen. Jeff Merkley, a Democrat representing Oregon.

Merkley also tweeted one video of such an arrest showing two masked, camouflaged individuals with generic “police” patches, detain a person dressed in a black outfit and place them in an unmarked van before driving away.

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) admitted to being one of the agencies involved in arresting protesters.

Doctor Says Virus Theory of Illness is Widely Believed But Has Never Been Proven

Del Bigtree, host of the popular HighWire alternative-health news show, interviews Dr. Andrew Kaufman who says no one has ever used standard scientific methods to prove that a novel virus, known as SARS-CoV-2, even exists and that, even if it does exist, there is no proof that it is responsible for the illnesses and deaths attributed to it. As bizarre as that may sound, after you hear what Dr. Kaufman has to say, you will be amazed at the evidence to support such a view. This is no small matter. If true, all the lockdowns and masks and social distancing and ventilators and loss of employment and crushing of economies is totally unnecessary. Del Bigtree asks: If viruses are not the cause of illnesses, then why are they planning to force an anti-viral vaccine on everyone? Please listen carefully to Dr. Kaufman’s response to that question. -GEG
