AIMI Members Discuss H.R.3717 on Radio

I apologize for the late start to our "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" Blogtalkradio broadcast on February 19. Please forgive America and/or stalkers. Blogtalkradio reported a DDOS attack, which prevented me from going on air at the appointed time. NSA or whomever does this should get used to the idea that they will NOT hamper my advocacy to pass H.R.3717 like they did when I advocated for congressional bill H.R.619 in 2009. People with acute mental illness deserve advocacy. Rep. Tim Murphy has covered numerous issues in the "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" that deserve our support.

Below is a link to the 20-minute broadcast we were able to publish after Blogtalkradio put down the DDOS attack. We invite everyone who would like to give input on the "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" to call next Wednesday and EVERY Wednesday and share your viewpoint with our radio audience.

Our first broadcast regarding H.R.3717 was more fruitful. The host was not prevented from starting the broadcast for 20 minutes, which dissuaded her guests on the second broadcast. The February 12 show is at

Join us next Wednesday at 9pm PST for the third broadcast regarding H.R.3717. To speak on air, please call (818)572.2947. Otherwise, please join by computer at

We will NOT be deterred from informing voters that the bill is before the 113th Congress now that would help decriminalize mental illness, reduce violence by police and correctional officers toward mentally ill people by providing additional training for officers, establish AOT programs, resume Medicaid insurance for inpatients in certain facilities, and reduce the stigma associated with psychiatric conditions - common, treatable health conditions.

IF my advocacy for H.R.3717 draws attention to the secret arrest and Wrongful Death of Larry and my family's denial of due process of law, do not think those crimes will not be fully exposed anyway in my book "The Cochran Firm Fraud" and in my lawsuit before the International Court. We will continue to discuss H.R.3717 during our "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" Blogtalkradio shows until the bill passes. Therefore, call off the DDOS agents, please, and don't bother to send the in-person stalkers. I do not own any prison stock and am not interested in helping anyone protect theirs at the expense of Americans with acute mental illness. 

We congratulate Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (TX) and Rep. Ami Bera (CA) for becoming the latest two of only six Democrats who have shown they care about a police firing squad killing a black mental patient in Michigan. Please watch the video and determine if police officers need crisis intervention training:
