Confidential Information Report (IR) to FHA Gary Pinkstaff

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

2002-10-24-pinstaff-confidential

We’ll start here.  This IR (link to PDF above) was written at the request of Arizona State Prison Complex–Florence (ASPC-F) Facilities Health Care Manager Gary Pinkstaff.  Early on the morning of 24 Oct 2002, I met with FHCM Pinkstaff and my immediate supervising Psychologist III Susan Arnold in the Medical Administration inside “The Walls” at Central Unit.  After Dr. Arnold left Mr. Pinkstaff’s office, I complained to our supervisor FHCM Pinkstaff that Dr. Arnold was signing off knowingly on excessive hours fraudulently claimed by our locum tenums contract psychiatrist David Rupley, Jr, MD(H).  Malfeasance.

Dr. Rupley had been working with us for several months.  While he was working only 3.5 hours on average each day, he billed the State of Arizona for 10 hours each & every day he showed up.  Everyone knew about his fraud.  Everyone in mental health and pharmacy complained bitterly and openly about his “greed,” especially my Psychiatric Nurse II Vicky Brumfield, RN.  Everyone talked about turning Rupley in.  So, I may not have been the only one to complain to Dr. Arnold.  However, I went first to Dr. Arnold and then up my chain of command.

Susan Arnold, Ph.D., Acting Psychologist III for ASPC–Florence, responded ’she didn’t have anyone else to write meds (sic) and didn’t know what else to do.’  She refused to correct the situation.  Therefore, I was obligated to go over her head.  Gary Pinkstaff insisted I give him my report in writing

Approximately 3:00 PM that afternoon, I delivered this (above PDF) hand written confidential Information Report to Pinkstaff.  He told me to drop my IR on the pile of papers on the table inside the door.  He acted like he did not remember his order from 10:00 AM.  He refused to look me in the eyes; he refused to acknowledge me.  It felt very awkward.  I took the hint and left.

I never heard another word about this matter.  That is, until Mr. Pinstaff’s supervisor Mr. Taylor showed up several months later in the Spring of 2003 and interviewed me.  Even then I heard nothing until the fall of 2004.  Central Unit’s Medical Records Librarian told me a certain gentleman from ADOC’s Central office called her and told her ’it would be a good time if that IR from Kent showed up right now.’  However, after all the abuse and battering I had suffered, and, more importantly, because that man did not call me directly and ask me for a copy, I did not trust the method of communication and did not contact him.

Much time has passed since then and I do not recall the name of that gentleman nor does my former Medical Records Librarian who shall remain unnamed because she is a private person who did nothing wrong.  But, all staff almost universally cautioned about any contact with anyone from ADC’s Central Office because nothing ever went well.  And nothing I ever saw ever did with one exception.  That was with Kim O’Connor but was extremely short lived.

Something else my Psychiatric Nurse II Vicky Brumfield complained about was Dr. Rupley’s failure to order the lab work necessary for the psychiatric medications he was prescribing.  It took us more than a year working in conjunction with Acting Psychologist III Susan Arnold to get Rupley to being writing labs for his meds.  But, it was apparently too little too late–we had inmates (plural) die from psychiatric “medication errors” according to FHCM II Andi Cordova in the fall of 2003.  Agranularcytosis is a horrible death–but that is another story.

Rupley was allowed to continue practising psychiatry on inmates for at least another full year.  Late in the summer of 2004, Mental Health Manager Pamela C. McCauley, Ph.D. ‘decided not to renew Dr. Rulety’s contract,’ according to Dr. Arnold’s account on 17 Aug 2004.  However, there was no mistaking Dr. Arnold’s anger because she had had to “escort” Dr. Rupley off the complex.  Escorting only occurs when someone is being let go, much like Dr. Arnold was later escorted–but that is another story.

Open Note to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer:

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

Governor Brewer:

Isn’t it time to stop talking and to give up on U-Tube presentations and take action:

Is it not incumbent up the governor to protect his/her state?

Isn’t it time to declare the federal government derelict in its duties to protect and succeed form the union?

Hasn’t there been a breach in your statehood contract?  Hasn’t the federal government violated the terms of the Equal Protection Clause?  Hasn’t your own administration breached its contract with Arizonans?

I am not an expert in Constitutional Law; I am only a retired psychologist–forced to retire because you refused to meet with me and you & your administration decided to continue the dereliction in duty of the previous administration (Napolitano) and continue the cover ups.

Much as you and your State government have been derelict in its duties to the citizens of Arizona (and to me personally), what comes around, goes around.  Maybe you should shore up your own foundation, the foundation of your State government in Arizona before you criticize others.  It’s kinda like the pot calling the kettle black.

Assault on the U.S.S. Liberty parts 1, 2 & 3

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Part of the purpose of my website and blog is to enhance mental flexibility.  The idea to to achieve mental health and since we are so brainwashed and mind controlled, it is necessary to introduce seemingly contradictory concepts in order that the public many better accept truths that seem remote.  This is necessary for US to reclaim our heritage and restore our Constitution.  Alas, between now and then the damage to our country is likely be significant.

This is the first video in a three part series describing an Israeli attack on an American warship tasked with monitoring Soviet transmissions in the Mediterranean during the Six Day War.  What strikes me as significant is the the Israeli's could not have gotten away with their subsequent attacks seizing more land had the U.S.S. Liberty been able to remain at her post in the Mediterranean.

This video amazed me!  We should demand a full accounting and make the facts public.

My Home in Chandler Sold in Foreclosure Sale

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

 

Last month I lost my house in Chandler to a foreclosure sale for $164,000.  My realtor Vic Gustafson with Keller Williams did his best with an investor to get a short sale.  While we came very close, the mortgage company, GMAC, was obviously NEVER working with us in a sincere manner.  The investor’s initial offer was $133,000 and he ultimately raised it to $161,000 but GMAC’s negotiator was never sincere in working with them.

 

As a result, I paid utilities & monthly HOA fees and I kept the place up for more than six months—all to no avail.  It appears GMAC Mortgage Company was only leading us on so that they would not have to pay the utilities & HOA fees and maintenance while they gathered as much intelligence on me as they could in order to shake me down.

 

While I do not like having to walk away from it, I am glad it’s over.  Certainly, I do not advocate walking out on one’s obligations.  But in this case I was waylaid by both my former employer, the Arizona Department of Corrections, and my “former” licensure board, the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners.

 

I was wrongly terminated.  I was incessantly harassed by my own Board in an effort to shut me up, and, ultimately, my health became compromised.  My Board denied me my ability to work and support myself.  There was no way I could keep my home due to lack of income and deprivation of my ability to earn a living.

 

What can I tell you about mortgage companies, the government programs to assist home owners to stay in their homes and short sale processes & foreclosures?

 

In brief,

 

WALK AWAY.

 

Don’t bother trying to work with any of them.  They are all dirty.  It is all crooked.  When I told the reception at GMAC’s “Recovery Loss Center” that I needed a “reasonable accommodation” due to auditory processing problems, I was immediately passed to the “Government Recovery Loss Center!”

 

They all work together.  Even HUD Housing counseling is a farce.  True, they help you with a budget, but they collect all this personal sensitive data and share it with (a) your mortgage company and (b) with the government!

 

Had Bush not bailed out the banks and allowed them to experience true free market forces & consequences, the banks & mortgage companies would not be treating us so harshly.  They would be forced to work with us.  But instead, they have been bailed out and programs put in place that are not only ineffective, they are a bunch of lines.

 

When the government holds more than 96% of all mortgages, you know something is wrong.  There is no market.  It is all inflated and far over-valued.  Washington DC has destroyed property rights!

 

When the Declaration Independence was being composed, there was debate about the three words.  “Life, Liberty, and Property” would have been far more accurate and apropos than what we got. 

 

This country was founded upon a strong foundation of protecting individual property rights but, alas, that foundation has been broken.

 

My advice?  Walk off.  Do not attempt a “short sale.”  Don’t bother with the phony and treacherous government programs.  Give them back the property.

 

Certainly, the mortgage company experienced losses on my house but my personal losses were even greater.  It turned out to be damned expensive rent.

 

 

 

 

 

Let the Public Trial Begin

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

We are about to begin a new path on Dr Kent’s Blog. Actually, this is the old path, the old issues I sought to make public. However, there is a lot to the story. It is very involved and it is much harder to understand it in it’s entirely than it is to convey it. Even trying to covey it is difficult.

For one, it is emotionally charged for me. It not only involves my professional life but my personal life. This includes my failed attempt at marriage; I tried to marry what turned out to be a sociopath, a scam artist whose only interest was in predating upon men. This is rather involved but we are going to get into it all. Well, most of it.

I am still recovering from the whole ordeal. Ultimately, it resulted in severely compromising my health and it may yet kill me. Nonetheless, I shall be posting as much of the hard evidence and documentation as I can publically. Please bear with me as I try to organize my presentation. My purpose is in merely getting this info out there. Others may organize it into a story or stories or a play or a movie later.

My purposes in this are (1) to make the story and the evidence available so that those who lost their loved ones to wrongful death may pursue justice. However, there is fat chance of this in Arizona! The courts and State bureaucracy are loaded with self-protecting fools who now suffer because of their dereliction of duty at the fate of the invading horde (illegal alien Mexicans and all) and ultimately nuclear annihilation.

Also, (2) I publish these matters to clear my name and reputation. I am merely a man, a sinner, a work I progress like all of you.

Finally, (3) I want to get this behind me and move on with my life. You see, the best revenge is to live a good life. Let the LORD Our God have all the vengeance.

About that nuclear annihilation, this (future) will not be the first time use of a nuclear device has been attempted on the Greater Phoenix Area. I blogged about the (past) first attempt years ago. It was a “dirty bomb” hauled in a foot locker by four Iraqi’s who were trying to get close to Palo Verde (the nuclear plant) to detonate it—only a sheriff’s deputy (one of Arpaio’s men) stumbled upon them.

The sheriff’s deputy was astounded that the four “Mexicans” did not respond when he told them in clear Spanish that they should unload the trunk and carry the load on their backs. That’s how close we came to getting “nuked” on our own soil!

Napolitano was Governor at the time and you never heard about it. I heard about it because people talk to me and tell me everything; moreover, God guides my steps and places me where He wants me—to hear from others and to help others—to receive His messages and, more importantly, to deliver His messages.

Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan a Lesbian?

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

In my opinion, President Obama’s recent Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is a lesbian.

Likewise, Secretary of Homeland Security and former Governor of Arizona Janet Napolitano is most definitely a practicing lesbian who is in a long-term relationship with her former cabinet level appointee, the former Director of the Arizona Department of Corrections Dora Schriro.  However, Schriro may be bi-sexual.

But, not Elena Kagan.  After all my years of experience as a psychologist (retired due to the harassment of Napolitano’s hacks on the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners) in my opinion Kagan is a pure lesbian.

Far more importantly, in my opinion, Elena Kagan is NOT qualified to be appointed to the United States Supreme Court!  In fact, I do not think Kagan should be a judge in ANY court.  However, I would not be averse to some jurisdiction appointing Ms. Kagan to preside over some Small Claims Court occasionally on a substitute basis so that Ms. Elena Kagan, Esquire might get relevant experience and so that we might see how she might perform.

Being a lesbian, in my opinion, does not necessarily disqualify a woman from being in public service; nonetheless, failing to acknowledge one’s sexuality IS a reason to disqualify a woman from public office, especially when that woman appoints her lesbian lover to a sensitive position underneath her such as a cabinet level appointee.  That would be evidence of boundary issues and very poor judgement.

Should the REPUBLICAN SENATORS FAIL TO FILIBUSTER AND DENY PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SECOND SUPREME COURT NOMINEE, that will be evidence that there is no Republican Party and the situation for our country is HOPELESS.

Think of the working environment that would create to appoint this unqualified person to the United States Supreme Court:  It would be a nightmare for the truly qualified justices and we may lose them due to the hostile environment Kagan would push upon them!  We need to make sure that only well-qualified judges with experience are appointed to the Supreme Court least we risk alienating those Honorable Justices already serving!

Furthermore, it is in President Obama’s best interest* that this unqualified liberal who has already demonstrated her willingness to wrongly use her position to push her radial political agenda is not confirmed by the US Senate.  Kagan did it at Harvard and she will do it on the Supreme Court if she is appointed.

The best judge of future behavior is past behavior.

If we had a Constitutional Legislature, this would not happen.  In fact, had our Senate the structure originally written by our founders, it would never happen.  In my opinion, the Seventeenth Amendment is unconstitutional and would not survive a Supreme Court challenge.  It would be thrown out!

Any sitting REPUBLICAN SENATOR who fails to take an active role in the filibuster to block Kagan’s appointment needs to be recalled and needs to be unseated by any means at the earliest opportunity–especially those up for re-election this year 2010 and thereafter.

*Obama is too narcissistic to realize this.  But, then, Stalin-like sociopathy overrules everything about the man.

My Absence of the past six months . . .

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

 . . . was necessary in order to avoid more retaliation at the hands of the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners.  Since then I have successfully retired my psychologist licenses and I have left the State of Arizona.

It’s good to be back blogging and in Alaska.  I have added twitter to my web presence at http://twitter.com/DrKentShow

However, I am still in recovery after a long ordeal that began at the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC) and was continued by the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners.  But I can report gains and discoveries.

If you read my new tabbed web pages entitled “Giving Psychology Away” and “Positive Projective Psychology,” I think you’ll begin to get a flavor of why I left the field and gave up my psychologist licenses.

Psychologists are supposed to be stalwarts of society and when psychologists begin to make wrong choices and do bad things, all of society suffers.  As you read my blog, you will come to understand what I am referring to.

I promise I won’t let you down.  I will do the right thing and I will astound you with my insights and revelations.

After giving practically everything  I owned away (donating) and returning to Alaska, getting settled has been rough.  Day Light Savings Time is terrible; Day Light Savings Time  is bad for biological systems.

The drive up the Alaskan Canadian Highway (the Alcan) was an ordeal.  It became the second most dangerous ride of my life only after my family’s first excursion up the Alcan in the summer of 1969 before it was paved.  Back then we drove in a cloud of dust and slid the whole way up on the fist-sized rocks they called gravel.  Only this time I was driving.  Except for my cat and my dog I was alone.

I hit the road just five days after the first snowfall.  Snow removal was poor to non-existent as the Canadians had just broken out their snow removal equipment.  The road was icy and deeply rutted by truck tire chains.   I had a tire blow out on my trailer at speed. 

It seemed everyone who was towing a trailer ended up off the road in the ditch and stuck exceptfor me in my AWD SUV with its sophisticated traction controls.  It took every bit of its 450 HP to pull me and my trailer back up onto the road when I was trying to avoid T-boning an 18-wheeler on the morning of my last day on the Alcan.  My U-Haul trailer ended up weighing several hundred pounds more and looked like a dirty ice cube–covered in sheets & slabs of ice and dirt in Whitehorse.  Worst of all: My cat Curly died in Edmonton.  I really miss him.  Curly used to rouse me every morning and insisted we played first thing.  He was a good cat. 

I met some really nice people on the road back and the overriding concensus:  We were all gladly leaving the lower 48 states in order to escape the ominous fate of the contiguous states and their big cities. 

Everyone felt we were leaving Sodom & Gomora just in time.  Indeed, we have.  More on that later.  Much much more.

Welcome, to the newly improved Dr. Kent web site.  I hope my fans will find me and once again make my blog and web site rise to the top of Internet search engines.

Your suggestions for my web site & blog and my web presence and your continued prayers & support are greatly appreciated.

At your service,

Dr. Kent

Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners 1400 West Washington, Room 235

Phoenix, AZ 85007

Via CERTIFIED U.S. MAIL

-RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED‑

Re:                                                         Request for Investigation: Susanne Arnold, Ph.D.

Negligence and Neglect Leading to Unnecessary Loss of Lives and Other.

Dear Executive Director Sonja Bolf:

Attached is my completed formal Request for Investigation form. In 2005, I attempted to work closely with the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiner’s Investigator David S. Shapiro; however, rather than work with me on very serious concerns, Mr. Shapiro made some sort of report to the Board indicating that I was perhaps mentally unstable. Mr. Shapiro’s report, whatever it was, was cited by a Board member along with Dr. McCauley’s written response to the Board in a motion ordering me to undergo scrutiny at my expense. That was my second RFI generated internally by this Board.

Allow me to give you some history: After introducing myself to Mr. Shapiro in person at the Board’s office, I expressed my concerns over my duty to report to the Board in light of the overwhelming number of violations of our Rules & Regulations and Arizona Revised Statutes I observed. I asked Mr. Shapiro for advice on how I should handle these matters, and after discussing multiple concerns, Investigator Shapiro told me he thought I could not bring all of those matters to the attention of his Board. More importantly, Mr. Shapiro asked me to bring this complaint regarding the loss of life to the Board.

At that time, I was working within the Arizona Department of Corrections with other professional staff attempting to obtain identifying information regarding the victim(s). Nonetheless, due to the manner in which records are kept in ADOC, after a lot of time and effort, we were not able to obtain the information necessary to come forward with a pressing case. Notwithstanding, we knew several important things. Let me explain Dr. Susanne Arnold’s role in all of this:

Dr. Arnold hired a man who was not qualified to provide professional psychiatric services for ADOC. Dr. Arnold failed to check this applicant’s credentials. I believe, David Rupley, Jr., MD(H) worked at the Arizona State Prison Complexes in Florence and Eyman and other locations in ADOC providing psychiatric services.

Dr. Arnold knowingly signed off on this man’s hours even though she knew they were fraudulent. That is, he had not worked them and she allowed him to defraud the State of significant sums of money. This is why they retaliated against me and sought to destroy me by conspiring to bring false allegations of sexual harassment against me. See attachments. There is more, far more to the story.

Dr. Arnold refused to take necessary action to correct this man’s practice in psychiatry. Specifically, Dr. Arnold failed to correct Dr. Rupley in his failure to monitor the psychiatric medications he was prescribing. More specifically, for more than an entire year, she failed to require Rupley to follow the standard of care of the community, through Arizona and across the entire country. That is, some of these psychiatric medications have Black Box Warnings regarding the necessity to check liver profiles in order to avoid death by agranular cytosis, i.e. Depakote.

Moreover, I have reason to believe that Dr. Arnold knew about several unnecessary inmate deaths. All due to medication errors. All committed by Dr. Rupley between 2002 and 2003. YET, Dr. Arnold allowed Dr. Rupley to continue working at ADOC for at least another full year unimpeded and uncorrected! And Dr. Rupley in all likelihood was allowed to kill more men! Dr. Arnold enabled this horrible malpractice by David Rupley, Jr., MD(H)!

I also brought this to the attention of the Board’s next investigator. When she and I talked on the telephone, she became upset and yelled at me. She told me this Board was ill equipped to handle those matters. Moreover, she told me there were other agencies to which I should make my reports. I have followed her advice to no avail—other than to get myself targeted for more harassment from this Board.

Lastly, when I was notified of a fifth complaint against me before this Board (submitted by the former Director or Programs for ADOC who, by the way, resigned in lieu of termination for having committed real sexual harassment [quid pro quo]); I called the Board’s former Executive Director Mrs. Maxine McCarthy. I wanted to inquire as to the nature of the matter brought to the Board’s attention as no information was forthcoming other than an invitation to the Board’s hearing on August 18, 2006.

When I called Maxine McCarthy on approximately August 15, 2006, I was still reeling and recovering from my chemical ordeal subsequent to the improper discontinuation (under physician’s orders) of bromocriptine on March 30, 2006. In that condition, I was defenseless. Executive Director Maxine McCarthy tried to take me into her confidence. She asked me what was going on: “What’s going on? What’s been going on? You can tell me anything. It’s not going any further.”

While I was in bad shape, I still recognized that whatever I told her would be going further. I acted somewhat impulsively and I told her truthfully and candidly what was behind the efforts to retaliate against me. I told Mrs. McCarthy that there had been an unlicensed psychiatrist at ADOC. He killed several inmates with his medications, and they were trying to hide the deaths.

To which, McCarthy exclaimed and demanded: “You mean we haven’t heard the last of this yet?”

Straight forward,

Another ADOC Inmate Dies from Heat Stroke

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

 

Marsha Powell became another victim of neglect & negligence at the Arizona Department of Corrections earlier today.  Inmate Powell was held for approximately 3 & ½ hours outside in an uncovered holding cell in the Arizona sun across midday in clear violation of ADOC Policy.  Under ADOC Policy use of such holding cells is limited to 2 hours.

 

Inmate Powell was being held outside waiting for a psychological evaluation and apparently was forgotten.  While four (4) corrections officers were sent home on Administrative Leave with Pay under investigation, it appears ADOC mental health staff, commonly known as “psych,” once again gets off scot free.

 

There is no mention of the investigation including ADOC Counseling & Treatment Services and the contributions of “psych” to the negligent demise of Inmate Powell.  Powell apparently was a “psych” patient and/or was to be assessed for possible need for mental health treatment and/or possible emergency intervention.

 

While security at ADOC is obviously understaffed and corrections officers stretched thin, past the point of breaking and past the point of the safe & orderly running of ADOC facilities, such as at the Perryville penitentiary, ADOC was severely compromised under the Napolitano-Schriro Administrations.  ADOC has deteriorated since Governor Brewer took office and Chuck Ryan replaced Schriro earlier this year.

 

Morale at ADOC has been extremely low since Chuck Ryan took over the helm.  Ryan was appointed by Governor Jan Brewer earlier this year.  Since Ryan’s appointment many corrections officers, commonly & wrongly referred to as “guards,” have opted to retire early from ADOC rather than continue working under such terrible conditions.

 

Previously, I reported on the demise of another inmate due to heat stroke at the Arizona State Prison Complex—Lewis (ASPC-Lewis).  That was covered up.  More importantly, during the previous death at a men’s penitentiary, the officers left the inmate exposed purposely in a holding cell outside of Medical to kill that convict!

 

Ultimately, Medical covered up for the negligence of security in that inmate’s death.  At least in the Powell death, Ryan has ordered a (partial) investigation. 

 

One wonders who is in charge of “psych” at Perryville? 

 

One wonders which Psychologist II’s, which Psychological Associate II’s, and which Supervising Psychologist III may have been on duty or were supposed to have been available to see that obviously distressed and in need of treatment female inmate in a timely fashion?

 

Let the investigation be expanded to cover the real causes of Inmate Marsha Powell’s death and the contributory negligence of Counseling & Treatment Services staff for failing to respond in a timely fashion. 

 

Moreover, I urge opening an investigation on the previous heat stroke death due to exposure at ASPC-Lewis.  It appeared that death contained a certain degree of premeditation.

 

Maybe it is time the FBI came in and investigated these undue losses of life?

 

Neither inmate was sentenced to death!
