Questions For Judge Joseph F. Johnston

Posted April 1st, 2014 by Iron Mike

Jim Gettens is an outspoken Massachusetts attorney – a fierce fighter for our US Constitution and people’s rights, – and a friend of this blogger.   Judge Johnston epitomizes the arrogance of left-wing overbearing government – the kind we have in Massachusetts.

RE:  The Justina Pelletier Case: How Juvenile Court Judge Joseph F. Johnston, in Police State Fashion, Created a “Ward of the State,” in Concert with the Corrupt and Dysfunctional Mass. Dept. of Children and Families,  for Medical Experimentation at Boston Children’s Hospital

Dear Judge Johnston:

Millions of fellow Americans and I gotta’ hand it to you: in a mere 14 months you, in concert with the corrupt and dysfunctional Mass. Dept. of Children and Families (DCF), run by incompetent hack Olga Roche — she of the missing 134 children–and the oh-so-superior practitioners and experimenters at Boston Children’s Hospital, have transformed a vibrant, competitive ice skater, Justina Pelletier of Connecticut, into an imprisoned physical wreck. We hope that you are very proud of yourself.

The genesis of Justina’s amazing transformation at your hands stems from Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), which has a fist-in-glove incestuous relationship with Mass. DCF, having engaged in a diagnostic pissing contest with Tufts Medical Center. Lou and Linda Pelletier, Justina’s loving, upright, and responsible parents, brought Justina to Tufts where she was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease and treated for it.

When Justina’s parents took her BCH later on to see her usual gastrointestinal specialist, who had moved there from Tufts, her case was hijacked by other BCH staff, including a psychologist, who diagnosed her with Somatic Symptom Disorder instead, claiming that Mitochondrial Disease is not a recognized condition, and who then filed a self-serving complaint with DCF claiming that Tufts had engaged in “medical abuse” of Justina.

DCF persecuted Justina and her parents from there,  with you as its judicial enabler.

You, of course, were too dull to catch the irony that so-called ‘Somatic Symptom Disorder’ is not subject to any objective test and is an absolute last ditch diagnosis under DSM-5. Nevertheless, you removed Justina from her parents’ lawful custody and awarded her custody to DCF and BCH, rendering Justina a “ward of the state.”

Boston Children’s Hospital had a selfish motive in having Justina declared a “ward of the state.”  You see, BCH’s “The Clinical Investigation Policy and Procedure Manual,” under “Wards of the State,” provides in pertinent part:

Children who are Wards of the State may be included in research that presents minimal risk or greater than minimal risk with a prospect of direct benefit.

Children who are Wards of the State may be included in research that presents greater than minimal risk with no prospect of direct benefit only if the IRB determines and documents that such research is related to their status as wards; or

conducted in…hospital, institutions, or similar settings in which the majority of children involved as participants are not wards(emphasis added).

So who knows what drugs and chemicals were administered to Justina as a medical guinea pig by the oh-so-magnanimous and kindly doctors at BCH in rendering her a physical wreck in just a year,  right, Judge?

As for that fist-in-glove incestuous relationship between BCH and DCF, I note that BCH’s so-called “Child Protection Program” (CPP) recites in pertinent part:

CPP houses three distinct programs which operate in collaboration to respond to suspected child abuse and neglect by providing a range of services including: …

4. Case coordination with the Department of Children and Families and other agencies

5. The provision of expert testimony in child protection cases…

Our team includes a nurse at Boston Children’s who functions as a liaison with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF)…(emphasis original and supplied).

Further, the Massachusetts State Auditor’s Report on DCF, issued March 26, 2014, covering the period July 1, 2010 through September 30, 2012, detailing pervasive DCF shortcomings and failures, on page 11, footnote 2, reported “two DCF nurse liaisons are located at Boston Children’s Hospital.  This team is responsible for,  among other things, assessing the healthcare needs of children in DCF care or custody and providing assistance and consultation to DCF personnel, parents, and caretakers” (emphasis added).  Gee, how convenient!

Unlike Justina, I can’t be declared a “ward of the state” by you and rendered a medical guinea pig to BCH, and unlike Justina’s parents, you can’t impose on me a self-serving, ass-covering, unconstitutional “Gag Order.”   

So I have three questions for you:

    1. How many other children have you declared “wards of the state” and rendered to BCH for medical experimentation?
    2. To how many parents, in addition to Justina’s, have you issued self-serving, ass-covering, unconstitutional “Gag Orders”?
    3. In how many other diagnostic pissing contests have Juvenile Court judges declared children patients “wards of the state” during the past 5 years?

I look forward to receiving your answers—but I’m not holding my breath.

NOTE: We at RRB have followed this case – somewhat reluctant to comment on it since we didn’t feel we had all the facts.  No, we don’t trust the media…

But now so much of the case is so public, – and Judge Johnston is so clearly acting as a paid hack to cover the asses of Olga Roche, the Hospital, and Deval Patrick’s corruption, – that Jim’s letter is the perfect vehicle to break our silence.

I hope when Justina is finally 18, – or God forbid,  21 – she sues the ass off Patrick, Roche, and Boston Children’s – AND Judge Johnston – who cannot be immune if he can be proven to be part of a criminal conspiracy.

Sooner or later, – one of the ‘invisible little people’ – will talk!

    I have been following this case since Michael Graham started talking about it on his radio program. This girl has gone from an ice skater to paralyzed below the waist, all in the care of the state. How is this helping her? I do believe they are using her to further their opinions and possible future papers on the subject of SSD.

    I become very suspicious when the staff will not let the family spend more than 1 hour a week together. Also, no written communication between family members.

    I am often surprised, when the DCF workers don’t show up wearing brown shirts.

    Attorney Gettens,

    I am a Sterling, MA Resident. I read an article in the Landmark in which you requested that Sterling Selectmen step down from their positions for their brazen, illegal activity.

    I also want current Selectmen to step down – including Attorney Suschyk for the brazen, illegal activity they have been engaging in for years.

    I want to tell you my story.

    Please contact me.
