    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...

    NPR CEO Vivian Schiller says that Juan Williams should talk to a psychiatrist for his Muslim remarks. On the second day of the Juan Williams-NPR scandal, that is exclusively a liberal-made scandal, the CEO of NPR who ultimately bears responsibility for Williams’ political correctness- and liberal intolerance-based firing added more fuel to the fire. Not only is her corporation to blame for chilling the American tradition of free speech, but now, she is even rubbing salt in the wound of Williams’ unjust firing. Speaking before the Atlanta Press Club on Thursday, Schiller had the insolence to say that Williams should...

    Daily Mail ^ | 25th September 2010 | By Daily Mail Reporter
    Criminal proceedings against the man accused of kidnapping Jaycee Lee Dugard have been sensationally halted because of concerns about his mental state. Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister made the decision yesterday after a short pre-trial hearing for Phillip Garrido. Phimister said he had concerns about Garrido's mental competency to participate in his defence. He is facing 29 counts of kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment in the 1991 disappearance of Dugard

    Come in. Make yourself comfortable. What’s that? You’re a congressional Democrat? You voted to triple the national debt; destroy a health-care system that an overwhelming majority of Americans were happy with in a way that creates a massive and infinitely complex new entitlement; bail out the banks and auto companies; and “stimulate” the economy with an $862 billion boondoggle that hasn’t created a single private-sector job? Your president is suing the state of Arizona for having the effrontery to enforce a law he wishes not to enforce (though he does have the constitutional responsibility to “take care that the laws...

  • Raging Against Self Defense: A Psychiatrist Examines The Anti-Gun Mentality

    06/29/2008 2:23:05 PM PDT · by My hearts in London - Everett · 44 replies · 155+ views
    "You don't need to have a gun; the police will protect you." "If people carry guns, there will be murders over parking spaces and neighborhood basketball games." "I'm a pacifist. Enlightened, spiritually aware people shouldn't own guns." "I'd rather be raped than have some redneck militia type try to rescue me." How often have you heard these statements from misguided advocates of victim disarmament, or even woefully uninformed relatives and neighbors? Why do people cling so tightly to these beliefs, in the face of incontrovertible evidence that they are wrong? Why do they get so furiously angry when gun owners...

    NY Times ^ | February 17, 2008 | ROBIN MARANTZ HENIG
    On a drizzly Tuesday night in late January, 200 people came out to hear a psychiatrist talk rhapsodically about play — not just the intense, joyous play of children, but play for all people, at all ages, at all times. (All species too; the lecture featured touching photos of a polar bear and a husky engaging playfully at a snowy outpost in northern Canada.) Stuart Brown, president of the National Institute for Play, was speaking at the New York Public Library’s main branch on 42nd Street. He created the institute in 1996, after more than 20 years of psychiatric practice...

    RALEIGH - An Atlanta psychiatrist testified Sunday she doesn't think Dr. John Hall, a Cornelius dentist accused of injecting semen into the mouths of six female patients, has a psychiatric illness or an interest in deviant sex. Dr. Tracey Irvin, of the Behavioral Medicine Institute, told a panel of the N.C. Board of Dental Examiners that she evaluated Hall for three days in November and also talked with three of his employees and reviewed dental board investigation records. "I did not feel that the information that I had supported that he had been involved with what he had been accused...

    Dr. John Wicks figures he deserves a one-of-a-kind badge the moment he arrives in Iraq next week. That's if the Army recognizes him as the oldest soldier in the war. Though he doesn't know for certain, the odds are favorable that the 68-year-old psychiatrist has blown out more birthday candles than any other serviceman deployed in the Middle East; at least, anyone who doesn't wear a general's star. "It's really not that big a deal," he said of his age, because he stays in shape by routinely riding his bicycle and working out at a gym three days a week....

"He's a loving, caring, selfless man -- but his politics are all about hatred," I said. "He's not educated, and more significant, he's ignorant -- he actually listens to Rush Limbaugh." I waited for a "Whoo boy!" or a sympathetic smile, but my shrink just stared at me, expressionless....

    More and more real life mafia godfathers are seeking help on the psychiatrist's couch, according to new research. Medical experts at the University of Palermo in Sicily say they are following the lead of James Gandolfini in the Sopranos and Robert de Niro in Analyse This. Psychiatrist Girolamo Lo Verso says the mafioso are grappling with mental problems caused by the stress of organised crime. ''They come to discuss food disorders, anxiety, depression and sexual problems they are having," he said. "We know of one case where a Godfather from Trapani in Sicily visited a psychiatrist because he could not...

    Local psychologist believes sniper kills done by terrorists By J.J. Stambaugh, News-Sentinel staff writer October 15, 2002 The recent sniper shootings in the Washington, D.C., area are probably terrorist attacks rather than the work of a traditional "spree killer," according to a local psychologist who specializes in violent behavior. Dr. Helen Smith, a forensic psychologist and author of the book "The Scarred Heart," earned her doctorate from the University of Tennessee in 1994. She often is called to testify as an expert witness in Juvenile Court proceedings; in "The Scarred Heart," she dedicated a chapter to the 1997 Lillelid murder...
