Wes Penre, 2005

The horrors in the field of psychiatry never stop shocking me. I have researched psychiatry since the 1980's, and for years and years the truth about this pseudo-science has been suppressed by the Media. 

Fortunately, when the Internet users increased rapidly in the 90's, people could start reading about the misfortunate patients in the mental hospitals around the world. Only recently, mostly because of inmates and researchers who have pushed the issue over and over, even the main stream media have started exposing some of it.
A while ago I decided to look deeper into one of the American psychiatric hospitals with the intention to expose the murders, rapes, drug abuse and violence that I know is taking place in there, and I chose to look into the NAPA State Hospital outside Sacramento in California. I got to know a wonderful person  who has been a patient there for years and years and who also has become a very, very good friend. 

His name is Wayne Morin Jr., and he has helped me tremendously with exposing psychiatry. And who could have helped me better? He has first hand information, because he has been locked up at NAPA for 18 years

I described the conditions at NAPA in my article, Sexual Abuse and Mind Control at Napa State Hospital (April 27, 2005), and his own story can be read here: Mind Control Manipulation - A Personal Story, by Wayne Morin Jr. Also, please read the following article closely: The Weirdest Prison Rules, May 25, 2005, to get the full picture.

Shane, David and Wayne have come a long way. Become best friends, all three have been
inmates at Napa State Hospital for years and gone through the horrors together.
David Hoover tragically died in his sleep in
January 2006.

Wayne has been very active in exposing the horrible conditions at the hospital and has also done an excellent job with gathering information from the mainstream media, which actually have started covering this issue, and the truth is finally starting to come out. There is no longer anyone who can say that the terrible conditions at the hospital do not exist - the proof is here!

The only question is: how long will it take before the hospital is closed down and all the insane criminals running the facility are behind bars? And even more important is: how long will it take before the invisible people in top positions of the society, those who are behind all this, can be put on trial? 

Unfortunately, NAPA State Hospital is only ONE example of how the psychiatric hospitals are run around the world, and I am sad to say that NAPA is a TYPICAL example. I strongly advise you to listen to Wayne LIVE at Channel Z, where he has been interviewed several times. These are the latest talk shows he participated in: 18 Years in Mental Hospital Part 1, from November 30, 2005, and 18 Years in Mental Hospital Part 2, from December 28, 2005. 

By speaking out, Wayne has accomplished a lot. Among other things: The Department of Justice in Canada has heard the last talkshow on the XZone Radio (Channel Z,  Dec 28, 2005) and is interested in getting all copies of the older and recent shows on Napa Sate Hospital Wayne and Lucky Meyer have done! Please take time and listen to those interviews. 
Here below is a huge information database, which covers mainstream media articles about NAPA State Hospital. As you can see, there is a lot of information and exposure. I hope you can take the time to read some of it at least, so you will understand what is going on behind those locked doors. Hopefully one day people like Wayne Morin Jr. can see justice being applied and there will be a stop to those incredible violations on human rights!

Mercury News 10/24/06 REDDING, Calif. (AP)  - After being committed to a state mental hospital earlier this month, a 25-year-old Sacramento man has been found mentally fit to stand trial for murder - a development that took his lawyer by surprise.
Shasta County prosecutor Brent Ledford said Monday that Jonathan Lee Jr. may get a new trial date for the slashing murder of his stepfather in March. He is scheduled to reappear in court on Friday.
Lee was ordered in April to stand trial but underwent a psychiatric evaluation after he spit in court. A court-appointed psychiatrist diagnosed him as delusional, and the judge ordered him to be committed to Napa State Hospital.
Lee was returned to Shasta County Jail last week after a new evaluation found him mentally competent, Ledford said.
Lee's lawyer, deputy public defender Mike Horan, was on vacation last week and did not hear the news until Monday. He said he had not decided whether to contest the new evaluation.
Lee is charged with murder, attempted murder and nearly two dozen other offenses in connection with the March 30 attack on his stepfather and mother at the couple's Happy Valley home.
Retired California Highway Patrol officer Barry Alan Smith, 50, bled to death after suffering 18 wounds in the attack. Lee's mother, 48-year-old Deena Smith, was hit in the back of the head with a decorative sword that had been on display inside the home
