The following is listed by request; I am not sure if it goes here, but this is designed as a universal resource.
Hamilton Moore I am an attorney who has successfully represented victims of unsavory mental health workers who [put] victims in nut houses to collect their insurance proceeds. I do not believe all psychiatrists are crooked but the fact "illnesses' are determined by vote rather than the existance of any objective organic criteria provides fertile opportunity for greed driven abuse. I wish to be listed.
