I have also e-mailed. Even to the governor.
They don't want to open any dialog.
This is outrageous.

Opening a Dialogue, With Govt, on the barbarism perpetrated on Mr Sandford would reflect unfavorably On Govt. itself, ..... looking out, For itself.

Ray is Not the only person Providing $50 Thousand Dollars a month for an army of State Funded Employees, and putting Them under Public scrutiny would put the entire State Mental Health System under Public scrutiny.

And With that Scrutiny would come the Loss of $ Millions of Dollars in Federal and State Funding to keep those State employees on board, as part of Govt's own "You watch my back, I'll watch your's" life support mechanism.

Exactly D Bunker.
It's amazing!
It's criminal way to state "we are not going to change and we are not willing to talk."
Detestable.

Addendum
This important correction was just made by Stan:

Dear Ana:

I believe the treatments run about US$2500 a pop, not $25,000. But with this correction noted; abuse for profit is still not only unethical, but should be criminal if anyone in power cared or gave a damn!

Thanks for your added and continued support Ana.

It's important make the correction. If we provide wrong data, specially about amount of money, they can say we are lying.
I'll make an addendum explaining.

Ana;

I added this to my post.

PS: Ray may have misspoken the $ Dollar cost from $2,500 per shock up to $25,000 BUT: We're betting that if You add up All the costs of the supporting Mental Health Bureaucracy contributing to the 40 times this has been done to Ray, he's not far off at $25K per shock.

The system which allows Ray to be shocked supports a Lot of people, at everyone else's expense.

D Bunker,
I'm glad you added this.
I believe it was Sally that once has said how much does it costs ECT in a comment at Furious Seasons.
