County worker (Psychiatrist) charged with trail sabotage
Medford Mail Tribune ^ | Sept. 29, 2012 | By Teresa Ristow

Posted on 10/02/2012 2:50:49 PM PDT by AuntB

A Jackson County-employed psychiatrist who the Forest Service says admitted to sabotaging mountain-biking trails in the Ashland watershed will head to court in late October after his actions allegedly injured three bikers and put others in danger.

Jackson Tyler Dempsey, 57, of Ashland, was arrested July 22 after he admitted to laying nylon cord, nails and vegetation along trails on multiple occasions because he "did not like downhill mountain bikers," according to a report from the U.S. Forest Service officer who arrested Dempsey.

Ashland mountain biker Bill Roussel said that on July 22 he spotted a man walking on the mountain biking trails and reported him to a Forest Service officer.

The arresting officer reported that he found Dempsey near milepost 11 on Forest Service Road 2080 near Mount Ashland later that morning. He said Dempsey admitted to sabotaging trails on at least five different days in June and July.

Dempsey is employed as a psychiatrist at Jackson County Mental Health in Medford. When contacted by phone, Anne Larson, director of the Mental Health Department, said she could not comment on the case. On previous phone calls, Mental Health Department employees answering the phone said Dempsey was with patients and not available. Dempsey did not return multiple calls in July or on Friday seeking comment.

"Hope this guy gets what he deserves."

In Oregon? A letter of commendation from the Guv is the most likely result, and promotion to The Department of Forestry.

This didn't even make the front page of the Portland paper.

They go into the profession because they’re trying to figure out what’s wrong with themselves.

90% of the people I worked with in the Mental Health profession were, or had previously had some psychological issues. I got the hell out of that professional path after 5 years seeing what the reality was.

“90% of the people I worked with in the Mental Health profession were, or had previously had some psychological issues.”

At one time it was an accepted fact that they go into that specialty to find out what is wrong with themselves. I have met very few that weren’t nuts.

And I believe George Putnam regarding that issue and many more.

He was a great American patriot and reporter, God rest his soul.

Well, it is ‘common knowledge’ that a lawyer that defends himself has a fool for a client.

Well what is a psychiatrist who treats himself called?
A REAL NUT?

We already know about the two judges that tried each other, but, then again, that is an entirely different ‘subject’.

It is true. I have a neighbor who is a psychotherapist at the nearby VA hospital and is a mad raving barking moonbat. He thinks all business owners and executives should have all their assets confiscated and be imprisoned (well, having been part owner of a company that would include me).

I would be willing to be he tells his patients that they are “war criminals” as part of their “therapy”.

The lunatic enviro-left has the view that evil humans (a virus infecting the Earth Mother Goddess Gaia), should not set foot in the wilderness, or even outside of their assigned village, with the exception of members of the enlightened elite.

What’s that old collgege joke, “I was a Psych major until I figured out what was wrong with me?”

Those who make it to graduation never figured it out.

When I was an undergrad, word was that Psych was what you majored in (rather, ENDED UP majoring in) if you were lazy and confused. Lazy, because the grades were easy. Confused, because there was no real academic path associated with the major.

Experience has shown me than those who majored in Psych as undergrads have personal issues on a deep scale.

It’s funny. The mountain bikers sabotage the dirt bike trails and the hikers sabotage the mountain bike trails. Not sure who sabotages the hiking trails. All the fun ends, though, when it escalates to neck-high razor wire across the trail. Obviously can be fatal.

In other news, here in Washington State we have lost many,many hiking, bike and motorized trails in the past month due to fire.

Go back to those trails in the Spring. The green will be so vivid as to take away your breath. It’s what fire does. It cleans out the trash wood, second growth and deadfall.

In some areas early greening will occur. Other places will still be a moonscape 20 years from now. Just came back from an area like that in the Blue Mountains of Oregon. Most of these areas on the east side of the Cascades don’t get all that much precipitation.

He’s listed as a psychiatrist on everything I can find.

State Licensing That’s what counts. Not what the reporters put in their stories... does’t really matter either way. While their is a difference, most don’t understand it anyway as much of the work can be done by both. They are both MD’s. I was just checking to see if they mixed up psychologist and psychiatrist when I found he was a neurologist.

It's been so dry, anyhow. I haven't seen rain since June and I'm on the West side of the Wilamette. It's still green(ish) but even the Columbia is down.

One of those record breaking years that send all the enviro-retards into convulsions. (No ones mentions that they've only been keeping accurate statewide records since 1940...)

I was just looking at one of the Mt. Hood webcams five minutes ago and it looks like a desert.

Also what you said about the Columbia — the level is about normal here (controlled by the dams) but the current is really slow so little flow. You look at boats drifting out there and they barely make any progress downstream.
