Ray Sandford is not a criminal. And he's not violent. But even if someone were a violent criminal, it would not justify torture under humanitarian and American core values and principles.

But Ray Sandford is getting ongoing forced electroshocks over his clear, repeated, passionate, reasonable objections.

MindFreedom is now compiling a list of the dozens of agencies and individuals who receive some type of taxpayer funding who are supposed to help and protect Ray. A few are standing up for him, but most are remaining silent or actively engaging in supporting his ongoing forced electroshock.

After the Wednesday, 25 March 2009 forced electroshock, his next forced shock would be on, ironically, on tax day -- 15 April 2009.

For a mental health system claiming it lacks funding, somehow the system has found thousands upon thousands of dollars to surround Ray with guardians, social workers, escorts, psychiatrists, judges... maintaining his ongoing forced electroshock, all funded by the taxpayer.
