Acquit Doctors in the Courts
Doctors are being charged with criminal activity all over the country for doing their job per their training and oath. This needs to come to an end, but the government won’t do that. It’s become a cash cow for them. We, the people, need to understand the motives and techniques used, and find ways to combat them. Take away the money they make convicting us, and medicine will return to what it should be—taking care of the patient.
If you know of a doctor in your area on trial, show up at the trial in support of the doctor.
Defendants are trapped in a black hole. We are told not to talk about our case to the press, and often, not even to testify at our own trial. All of the employees in our offices become automatic witnesses for the government, even if they don’t want to be. Then we are not allowed to communicate with them. Pharmacists are threatened that if they don’t testify against the physician, they could be charged criminally. And with the threats the government can produce, most people will cave and desert the physician, even to the point of perjury against him on the witness stand. The doctor’s case is played by the media using inflammatory phrases like “pill mill” for the sensationalism. They don’t care either if they help put innocent people in prison.
Help us build the list of charged/convicted innocent doctors
In the course of the last six years, we have created a list of many of the physicians that have had charges brought against them. The list is on the page heading “Doctors Charged”. Then there is a similar list on the page heading “Doctors Convicted”. If you have any personal information on any of these doctors, please let us know.
We are interested in bringing light to past government attacks on these doctors as well as ones just now under attack. We need to inform the public that there is a reason for these attacks—MONEY!
There are only 2 “professions” where the government can forfeit the person’s assets in a criminal procedure—racketeering and medicine. In medicine, the only way to forfeit assets is under the Controlled Substance Act (CSA). So in order to put money in the Justice Department coffers, some smart US Attorney started attacking doctors for doing pain management under the CSA by declaring the doctor working “outside the course of professional practice”. Now this has become common practice. Even though judges on the Supreme Court have made the statement that the phrase should refer to doctors acting like street pushers, they have allowed these charges to stick by refusing to hear cases that come to them. It’s all a ploy to make money.
Please add cases that you are familiar with to the website. We will add pages under the appropriate headings for every case we get information on. If you have information to share, please fill out the contact form at the bottom, and we will contact you with how to get your story published.
Help communicate with doctors in prison to get their stories.
As a convicted felon, Dr. Cheek cannot have personal association with other felons. So we also need other people to serve as communicators. We need to find out where the doctors are that have been charged or convicted, and get their stories. If you would like to do this, please communicate your help through the Contact Us form.
Join Our Communication to Legislators Campaign
On the menu under Communicate, you will find the phone numbers, office locations, email addresses, facebook and twitter accounts for all of the legislators, both Senators and Congressmen, for every corner of the country. We need people dedicated to communicating with their legislators on a 2-3x/week basis at least, and daily if possible, to tweet a statement–personal or one provided. You can sign up to do this, which would help us make sure that all legislators are being covered on a regular basis. As legislators are found that are on our side, we need to provide them with the information they need to get new laws passed.
