A Whistleblower's Story

There was a recent interview by John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute with Allen Jones, a whistleblower. He was blowing the whistle on the pharmaceutical companies' handouts to key officials in Pennsylvania. The Rutherford Institute is representing the Rhoades family from Indiana in their lawsuit against their school district for giving their daughter a mental health survey (Teenscreen).

Could this pharmaceuticals'/key state officials' back rubbing happen here in Illinois? One would have to think that would be possible. (Understatement of the Year)

The mental health worker explained that the test results indicated Chelsea had OCD because she responded that she liked to help clean the house and social anxiety disorder because she responded that she didn’t party much. The worker told her that if her condition got any worse, her mom should bring her to the mental health center for treatment.

Remember that the Ilinois House House has already passed a Resolution last year calling for screening of all children with the use of the TeenScreen survey.
