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.

Eco freak ping!
A leftist criminal psychiatrist living in leftist Ashland.
Oh no’s, tell me it isn’t so.
Perhaps if he were running for public office..?”
THat would be the icing on the cake, wouldn’t it? Don’t let Obama find out, he’ll put the criminal shrink in charge of the EPA!
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.
Some of the guys out on the trail should have found him and rearranged his outlook on life................
isn’t it true that most psychiatrists NEED psychiatrists?
They go into the profession because they’re trying to figure out what’s wrong with themselves.
Commentator George Putnam once said, “I never met a psychiatrist who didn’t need one.”
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.
Pretty sure he is a neurologist, not a psychiatrist. In any event, he’s a few short of a load!
He was a great American patriot and reporter, God rest his soul.
I met a Psychiatrist at a party once. She was attractive, so I thought,,,, “WTH! Give it a shot!” She was a whacko! Nuttier than squirrel poop!

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.
