Byung Kang, MD a 77 y/o family practitioner in Little Falls, NJ was indicted March, 2017 under the state’s strict liability law, which is meant to hold drug dealers accountable for overdose deaths, as well as drug distribution charges. This law was written in 1987, proof that it was directed at drug dealers, because doctors were not being illegally attacked under Title 21 at that time. Doctors are not drug dealers. This is one of the illegal acts of the US government, and now states are following suit–to charge doctors as “drug dealers”, through misuse of the law that actually exempts doctors from just such charges. In the overdose case, Dr. Kang is accused of issuing oxycodone prescriptions to a 26-year-old who was found dead in December 2014. But doctors should not be held liable for patients who misuse their prescription. That’s like holding Ford accountable for vehicular manslaughter when a drunk driver causes a fatal wreck.
Let’s look at how the media and the government work together to incarcerate innocent physicians. Media reported the government position that Dr. Kang sold 90-pill bottles of oxycodone to patients with “no medical need” for $150 to $200 apiece. That is supposed to give the jury pool a preconceived idea that he was “dealing”. But here is the reality. Oxycodone can be correctly dosed up to 6 times per day. So 90 pills for some patients would only be a 15 day supply. Second, government agents don’t have a medical degree, so they can’t determine “medical need”. But they always throw that statement out to the press anyway. The fact is that an undercover agent saw the doctor, was evaluated and treated, but then complains that they got opioids for their medical condition. The fact that they were “patients” proves that they were seen in the doctor’s office, evaluated, and his medical opinion for treatment was oxycodone. That is all that is necessary to determine medical need, not some US Attorney who makes six figure bonuses for the size of the sentences these innocent physicians get.
They then try to make it look like he was simply selling prescriptions by saying “for $150 to $200 apiece”. Those prices are standard office visit prices, maybe even lower than normal for this area of New Jersey. It is truly amazing how the DOJ can word completely normal behavior and make it sound criminal. But they are becoming experts at doing just that–”creating crime where there is no crime”–simply through stringing words together. Licensed to Lie by Sidney Powell shows how they did that to bring down Andersen and ruin Senator Stevens of Alaska.
To achieve the indictment, the “authorities” claimed that the doctor’s “own records allegedly revealed that he knew many of those patients were addicted to oxycodone or were reselling the pills.” The DEA agent Steven Tomaziefski in my case told the same lie to the Grand Jury, which is the only reason I was indicted. My guess is that the government agents lied in this case too.
And so we get to the REAL meat of the attack–”the state seized more than $1.4 million from the Kangs. And to make sure that the government forfeits it all, Dr. Kang’s wife, Soo Kang, who worked as a receptionist for the practice, also faces charges of conspiracy, money laundering and tax fraud with the doctor.
According to Dr. Kang’s lawyer, Stephen Turano, he intends to plead not guilty. So, New Jerseyites, it is really important for you to get the word out to everyone in the state to inform the population about the evil being done here to a legitimate physician and his family. I would be happy to come anywhere in the state and provide seminars or talks on the issues at hand, for costs alone.
