RE: John Ford; Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Center

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to you about the illegal, illegitimate and highly unethical imprisonment of John Ford, as we urgently need your help in exposing the matter to public awareness.

John Ford, chairman of Long Island UFO Network, was railroaded by the Suffolk County Government of New York for coming too close to revealing what has been widely known among residents as the illegal toxic waste dumping taking place in many parts of Suffolk County.

Perceived as a political threat to Suffolk County’s bought-and-paid-for governing officials, John Ford had his civil liberties violated and stripped away in the blink of an eye while being falsely accused of the most unbelievable and far-fetched charges every invented by a District Attorney’s office: the attempted poisoning and murder of Suffolk County politicians via the placement of small amounts of radium in their toothpaste.

Yes, you read it correctly. I suggest you read it again. Then start asking some questions of your own. Even if you could consider the D.A.’s charges with a straight face, it would take twenty to forty years for any such exposure to radium to have any effect whatsoever.

Targeted by a level of corruption that would put anyone in a state of utter shock and disgust, John Ford was accused of an utterly impossible crime he never committed, labeled mentally unfit to stand trial by a Suffolk County judge, and has been a political prisoner at the Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Center in New Hampton, New York, for the past sixteen years.

Imagine the last sixteen years of your life suddenly disappearing. All those wonderful experiences you enjoyed taken away from you in the blink of an eye. Illegally. Illegitimately. Never to return. How would it feel? What would you do to correct this extreme act of cruelty and injustice? What would you do to get your life back again?

Let’s pause for a moment to let that sink in. You’d have to say it’s cruel and unusual punishment by any stretch of the imagination, right? After all, we do have a constitution that prohibits that in this country, right? Sadly, when it comes to the life of one John Ford, the answer is a resounding “NO”!

Ask any experienced psychologist or psychiatrist and they will tell you in no uncertain terms just how abnormal, highly absurd and unethical it truly is to be holding anyone for sixteen years in a psychiatric ward of any kind under these fabricated circumstances.

A coalition movement has already been formed called THE JOHN FORD INITIATIVE: FREE JOHN FORD NOW.
