- The siege and violation of the human
rights of Shirley Ann Allen came about simply because her brother, who
had previously beaten her up, claimed that she needed a Mental Health evaluation.
The judge ordered a psychiatric examination and police have tried to take
her involuntarily through force of arms and through the connivance of a
group of relatives who claim she is mentally ill. Shirley Ann Allen evidently
claimed that someone was "directing RADAR waves" at her. This
may not be as irrational as it sounds in view of the reported use of Extra-Low-Frequency
(ELF) electromagnetic waves attuned to human brain waves that can induce
visual and auditory hallucinations. (See "Microwave Voice Transmission
Directly Into The Brain" -ed)
- When the sheriffs deputies came to take
her and she refused to go, tear gas was fired through the windows at her.
She fired back with a shotgun blast over their heads. No one was injured.
The State Police were called and the siege was begun. At one point, a police
dog was sent in after her, and it came yelping back out with a bullet hole
through its muzzle.
- What we are seeing here is an unwarranted
attack by State Police forces against a citizen with an exemplary record,
who has never committed a crime against society
- In this scenario, Shirley Ann, a middle-aged
widow, was deprived by the police of water, use of plumbing, food, lighting,
heat, and the right to a clean environment, free of disease and with proper
sewage disposal. Such deprivation constituted a serious threat to her health
which was not justified by law, since Shirley Allen had not been adjudged
a criminal, had not been diagnosed by competent psychiatric authority as
insane. She was not a demonstrable threat to her neighbors and is almost
universally respected as an upstanding citizen.
- The Fourth, Fifth and Thirteenth Amendments
to the Constitution forbid deprival of liberty without due process of law.
It has never been demonstrated that prior to the arrival of the police
Shirley had ever committed a crime, and she had never been shown to be
a danger to herself or others. So what were we witnessing here? This was
another act of tyranny perpetrated against an innocent citizen, much like
that which occurred at Waco and Ruby Ridge, and what British troops subjected
the citizens of the American colonies to prior to 1775 and similar to the
events that started the War of the American Revolution. What happende to
Shirley Ann Allen was an overt and unlawful act of tyranny against an American
citizen in defiance of the US Constitution.
- This act would not be possible were it
not at least tacitly sanctioned by State authority. This situation is a
grave concern to all Americans, especially in light of the atrocities at
Waco and Ruby Ridge. The Governor refused to defuse this situation in accordance
with Constitutional law or as the protector of the sovereign rights of
the people of the State of Illinois.
- The siege lasted for six weeks, and ended
when, after no water or food for three days, Shirley came out of her house
to the front porch where a State Trooper fired hard rubber bullets at her
and knocked her unconscious. She was then carried to an ambulance and taken
to a psychiatric hospital, all without due process of law. SHE WAS NEVER
PROVIDED WITH AN ATTORNEY PRIOR TO COMMITTMENT, AND WAS NOT GRANTED A HEARING
TO PRESENT HER SIDE.
- Americans have stood by and seen this
courageous woman tyrannized, and then subjected to being possibly injured
or killed as she was forced out of her home. Back in the days when gender
roles were better defined, rather than the wimpish unisex picture that
has been brainwashed into us today, and in the absence of appropriate action
by the Governor, the men of 1776 would have volunteered in force to go
to that small country field in Illinois and, if necessary, would have trained
their weapons upon those responsible for this act of war and ordered them
to cease and desist. It is called negotiating from strength.
- These men, carefully selected as sober,
even-tempered, and determined to serve the cause of liberty, would have
rushed to defend not only the rights of this lady, but also the right of
all Americans to live in freedom without the harassment of foreign troops,
or FEMA-trained, jack-booted thugs calling themselves "police."
- The flames of Liberty are banked now,
and the coals glow dimly in the ashes of this once glorious republic. But,
I would suspect that, sooner than some of us think, this Spirit of Freedom
will once again arouse from slumber and will rise in fury like a pillar
of fire that is fed by an unquenchable flame.
- Fellow Americans, we cannot--we must
not-- let freedom die as a way of life for our children and grandchildren.
Is this the time when we stand up for liberty?
- In the words of the great patriot, Sam
Adams: "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of
servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us
in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands
which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity
forget ye were our countrymen."
