Subject: Fwd: Using the ADA requirements for an expert competent and experienced to halt use of death penalty

 

Dear Sister Helen Prejean,

Please allow some time in your busy schedule to consider the merits of this argument to shut down the death penalty based on Americans with Disabilities right to competent and experienced experts. I know you visited and endorsed the concept of Occupy and the injustice of our current economic political climate. The concepts included in the original email would go a long way to bring about needed change in our criminal justice system as well as influence the health care system. After all, the right to access experts competent and experienced is a right for anyone with an illness as well as anyone involved in the court system.

Dear Sister Prejean,

I wish to bring to your attention a tactic that I have not seen utilized to halt the use of the death penalty. It may be used to quickly stop the death penalty in all jurisdictions.

I became aware of this issue as a physician experienced in sleep disorders experiencing silencing by the medical board of Texas. Their “expert”, board certified in forensic psychiatry, admitted that she “knew almost nothing about sleep apnea”. I began wondering how a physician without experience in medical disorders could render judgement on a person affected by both oxygen and sleep deprivation. Furthermore, there are numerous other medical disorders that are not adequately covered (or, in some cases, not covered at all in advanced psychiatric texts)  so that the physician so instructed would never even suspect the accurate diagnosis. Among these are periodic limb movement disorder and mild to moderate hepatic encephalopathy ( short of being comatose). The amount of research that is pertinent to understanding human behavior from organ dysfunction that never makes it into prominent textbooks is truly amazing.

Sister, while some attorneys, even specialized in criminal law, believe the Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply to their clients, I do not believe that this attitude would prevail. Certainly, all mitigating factors, including medial diagnoses that affect judgement and reasoning, have to be presented to the court before a death penalty can be meted out. The fact that physicians licensed by states, on the word from a private entity like a medial specialty board, often controlled by pharmaceutical interests, but with crucial information redacted from their education, have been allowed to be presented to the courts as experts “competent and experienced” is surely a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I would have personally tested this issue in federal court except for the fact I was stalked out of Texas while attempting to make such an effort.

I would like to initiate this dialogue with you hoping to network with individuals who could effect this change. While I believe that humans do not have the right to cause another human’s death, especially under government fiat, the above tactic make be able to stop death penalties from being effected until human culture can evolve to where it needs to be this to be fully accepted. If you would like to send my information on, please do so and feel free to clarify my wording with additional comments.

Hoping to hear from you at your earliest convenience,

Cynthia Jeanne Lee MD
