Harvard Study: Police Killings A Major Public Health Concern, But Underreported

According to a new Harvard study, police violence kills more U.S. citizens, annually, than the flu and pneumonia combined. So why aren’t law-enforcement-related deaths being counted, tracked, and reported, like any other form of mortality affecting the public health?

A highly concerning new report published in the journal PLoS titled “Police Killings and Police Deaths Are Public Health Data and Can Be Counted,” reveals that police killings as reported by 122 major U.S. cities were responsible for more citizen deaths in 2015 than influenza and pneumonia deaths put together.

Alarmingly, the report revealed that, at present, there is no reliable public health data on the number of police killings that occur because of long-standing resistance by police departments to make these data public.

The report explained that, ironically, we only have a sense of how many citizens were killed in the U.S. by police in 2015 because of “The Counted,” a United Kingdom-based website launched on June 1, 2015, by the newspaper The Guardian. According to the report, “the website quickly revealed that by June 9, 2015, over 500 people in the US had been killed by the police since January 1, 2015, twice what would be expected based on estimates from the US Federal Bureau of Intelligence (FBI).” At the time of the writing of this article [Dec. 29th, 2015], 1126 U.S. citizens have been killed due to police violence in 2015.

When compared to publicly available U.S. statistics on other common causes of death, the scale at which the endemic problem of police violence occurs, and the extent to which it affects the public well-being, comes into clearer view:

It is startling that we, in the US, must rely on a UK newspaper for systematic timely counts of the number of persons killed by the police. After all, we have a world-class public health system that reports, nationally, in real-time, on numerous notifiable diseases and also on deaths occurring in 122 cities with populations >100,000 [4]. As of September 19, 2015, the cumulative 2015 total of 842 US persons killed by the police [1] notably exceeded the corresponding totals reported for the 122 cities’ 442 deaths under age 25 (all causes) and also 585 deaths (all ages) due to pneumonia and influenza, and likewise exceeded the national totals for several diseases of considerable concern: measles (188 cases), malaria (786 cases), and mumps (436 cases), and was on par with the national number of cases of Hepatitis A (890 cases) [4]. Just as epidemic outbreaks can threaten the public’s health, so too can police violence and impunity imperil communities’ social and economic well-being, especially if civil unrest ensues [1,3,58].”

The report makes the compelling argument that law-enforcement-related deaths are not just a criminal justice concern, but a public health concern because they involve mortality and affect the well-being of the families and communities of the deceased.

Another Alternative Health Doctor Killed, Found in Makeshift Grave

Joining a dozen other doctor deaths

[Editor’s Note]

For those that do not know, all the dead alternative health doctors that keep piling up is highly reminiscent of the dozens of dead high ranking bankers that were toppled the last two years, and the 100+ microbiologists that all died under ‘strange circumstances’.

Really hope this doesn’t continue, because many of these people were doing  quite notable work for humanity.  Its definitely a sad sad day.  My heart goes out to the families of all of them.

The mysterious doctor deaths are getting even more concerning. Now a Canadian alternative health doctor has been found. Canadian doctor, Linnea Veinotte, was found dead just a few days before Christmas. Even the police report says that the place Veinotte and her family resided ‘was a safe place.’

Doctor Bradstreet’s death led this rash of strange ‘suicides,’ but the number of strange death circumstances – most of alternative doctors – seems to be growing. [1]

According to HealthNutNews:

“Her body, partially decomposed, was found just days ago and buried in a makeshift grave near a small dirt road on the south end of the island. Last seen on Sunday, Dec. 6., Dr. Veinotte, “left the house at 8 a.m., wearing green running shorts, a purple tank top and her Adidas, with the family dog, Nico, in tow.” She was to go for a jog around a well-known residential community, but instead residents later reported hearing tires belonging to a dark-colored SUV screech, and a loud thump. Their dog was discovered bleeding at the scene, but Dr. Veinotte was nowhere to be found.”

Sylvan McIntyre, an assistant-superintendent with the Royal Grenada Police who has been an officer for 31 years, says he’s never seen a case like this. On an island of just 110,000 residents, people don’t go missing.

The Culture & The Era Of Imagination

“There is the craziness you can see from ground level, while you’re in the muck and investigating it. And then there is the craziness you see as you float up above the muck. From a height, you obtain a different view of the insanity. You see culture. You see what culture really looks like, when it’s heading down a trail of failure without consciousness.” (Preparatory Notes for Exit From The Matrix, Jon Rappoport)

There is an Earth Culture, and, yes, it is heavily influenced by controllers who make all sorts of war on the population, but it is also an organically deteriorating mass of small-minded concepts that presuppose we are living in small spaces.

As a reporter, I’ve spent 30 years drilling into a number of these concepts, in order to expose them as shams and scams. Deep medical fraud has been one of my targets.

Good science and good technology have taken us to good places, but increasingly science is occupied with promoting lies and fake realities, in order to achieve political objectives; and technologies are being deployed by people to render themselves incapable of distinguishing between closed systems and free open life.

Consider the issue of vaccines. Getting down into the morass of information on this subject, several things become apparent (and I have covered them in detail): vaccines contain highly toxic elements; studies claiming safety are mainly based on short-range observation; in the US, the apparatus for reporting serious adverse effects is broken and inoperable; the most reasonable estimate of vaccine damage yields up alarming figures; claims for marvelous success are based on the erroneous notion that the absence of familiar disease symptoms means the disease has been prevented—when, in fact, this absence can very well indicate a suppression of the immune system, whereby that system can no longer mount a strong inflammatory response. Additionally, the sharp decline of so-called infectious diseases in the West was the (non-medical) result of improved standards of living, and the most important improvement was in the area of nutrition.

Having established and seen all this from ground level, so to speak, one can rise far above the whole fray, look down, and view vaccination from another perspective—as in, what are these lunatics doing to each other?

There they are, giving and receiving injections of toxic poisons, and thinking they are promoting health and well-being. This is a social and cultural phenomenon, when watched from a significant height. This is worried and fearful and greedy people running around and adhering to a social model of behavior. The model is madness. The model is enforced. The model is entered into willingly as well.

Monsanto Offered $10M to Prove GMO Safety: Monsanto Never Shows…

On Monday December 21, students from Livingston High School joined Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, an American scientist with a PhD in systems biology from MIT, to debate the ‘safety’ of GMO crops. Monsanto was invited to come and prove that there are indeed GMO safety assessment standards, and was even offered a $10 million enticement to send representatives to argue its side. But the company was entirely absent from the event. [1]

Dr. Ayyadurai had offered Monsanto a healthy prize for proving their GM crops such as soy, corn, or cotton had adequate safety standards.

“If Monsanto can disprove the fact that there are no safety assessment standards for GMOs, the conclusion of our fourth paper, then I will give them my $10 million building,” Ayyadurai had told the press. [2]

Dr. Ayyadurai is the lead author of four papers that used a computational systems biology approach to analyze the effects of the genetic engineering process on key biochemical pathways affecting plant physiology. The results predicted that the carcinogen formaldehyde could accumulate in the GM soybean plants, with concomitant depletion of the antioxidant glutathione, but not in the non-GM plants. [3]

“This is not a pro- or anti-GMO question,” Ayyadurai wrote in his abstract. “But [rather], are we following the scientific method to ensure the safety of our food supply? Right now, the answer is no. But we need to, and we can if we engage in open, transparent and collaborative scientific discourse, based on a systems approach.”

With $10 million on the line, Dr. Ayyadurai said, “prove me wrong.” Does Monsanto’s absence mean it can’t?

The debate had a good turnout, with many hearing Ayyadurai’s points about the need for more safety testing for GMOs. He and his colleagues, including LHS students and Science Supervisor Brian Carey, shared what they have learned through their research on GMOs. 
 Too bad Monsanto didn’t RSVP.

Many people sent versions of the following story, and as most know, I have to rant occasionally about the deplorable state of Amairikuhn edgykayshun, a cesspool of mediocrity that I have laid firmly at the feet of the pseudo-discipline of “education,” the “doctors” of said subject, the stupidity of “teacher certification”, a requirement based upon the nitwittery of progressivist educational philosophy that began in the 19th century in the USA after the War Between the States, and which has continued unabated until now in its most recent manifestation of mediocrity: common core and its “individualized assessment process.” Consider this article and its bleak report:

Fully 65 percent of U.S. universities unable to successfully teach their students math, economics, government, science and literature
