Unlawfully forced medication

Bennett, Christopher



Unlawfully Forced Medication The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is unlawfully forcing medication on inmates at California Health Care Facility in Stockton California. This is being done as a way to discipline inmates. Further, orders by medical staff to administer medication is being used as a reason to deploy chemical force against inmates who are unwilling to accept the medication. During the month of May 2018 I witnessed correctional officers forcibly enter my neighbor's cell using multiple different chemicals weapons in order to allow medical staff to administer unwanted medication on multiple different times. The inmate in said cell was not by any means a danger to himself or others. Each time that correctional officers deployed chemical force they would first spend hours playing with their weapons and marching around the unit. This was nothing if not an intimidation act. Further on June 9th 2017 at approx. 20:18 hours I myself was forcefully medicated after confronting the correctional officer who destroyed my personal photos. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation later deemed my actions not related to my mental health at a 115 hearing in order to find my guilty then turned around and said it was related to my mental health to avoid legal issues when I filed suit. It is time to hold the California department of corruption and retaliation accountable for their actions. Christopher Bennett
