Locked In Psych Ward For 8 Days Because Cops Couldn’t Believe She’s A Businesswoman

The worst nightmare, Police send you to a Psych Ward where everyone tells you that you are not who you say you are.

www.nydailynews.com...

www.addictinginfo.org...




An African American business woman from Long Island was drugged and locked in a hospital psych ward for eight days because first police, and then doctors could not believe her high-powered career was real.



She will be getting a hell of a well deserved pay-out after this.

The New York Daily News was able to gain access to Harlem Hospital’s treatment plan for Brock, which read:

“Objective: Patient will verbalize the importance of education for employment and will state that Obama is not following her on Twitter,” and “patient’s weaknesses: inability to test reality, unemployment.”





Doctors could also have verified Brock’s employment history with ease, had they so chosen. Several Instagram photos from her time at Citibank last year are available publicly.

They show company emails announcing the most productive personal bankers of the month, a list Brock consistently topped and shared with pride. Astoria Bank is her current employer.

A simple Google search of her name, or a few phone calls would have cleared up this whole situation in a matter of minutes. But no such measures were taken. Is it really so unbelievable that a black woman in America might own a BMW legitimately, bought with wages from a successful career?

Apparently so. Medical records show that for eight days, she was forced to attend group therapy, suffer injections of heavy sedatives, and swallow lorazepam and lithium pills – all in efforts to have her deny her own life story. When she was finally released, no apologies were made for the mistake. Instead, she was handed a $13,000 medical bill. Brock has since filed a suit against the city, citing unspecified damages. New York City’s Law Department are reviewing the suit.

I read this the other day and was horrified.

I guess when she went to pick her car up from impound she was quite emotional (justifiably so) so the cops threw her in Harlem Hospital for 72 hour psych eval.

They immediately drugged her and then they held her for 8 days and the doctors psych plan included:

“Objective: Patient will verbalize the importance of education for employment and will state that Obama is not following her on Twitter,” and “patient’s weaknesses: inability to test reality, unemployment.”

Because they didn't believe her, but a quick internet search or phone call would have straightened it all out (she was telling the truth).

I hope she sues for millions honestly.

NYPD gets sued 30/day on average. Defunding the whole den of criminals would be a money maker for taxpayers.

Also hope that the doctors are fired for malpractice and the officers are fired for false arrest. Although I can hear the "she resisted arrest" excuse coming....

For Once...I really want Al Sharpton on this case. I want her to win millions, and for the doctors and police men to be butt hurt in prison for their blatant ignorance.

The two tone blue clown car just got an aluminum billet big block
and a fat blower..

She will be getting a hell of a well deserved pay-out after this.


And I also hope all asshats responsible get strapped into it for a
really fast ride into a sudden stop at the water trough. That'll be
400k from your IRA. Thank you very much Doctor, and have a nice life.

I can also hope the board torches the tickets on every one of these
mad scientists as well. GOD I hate megalomaniacs with financing...

In this day and age, this really goes beyond the pale. Does this lovely woman still not have the right to refuse treatment, or was she committed involuntarily under some section of a mental health care act? And let's not get into the insane nature of the accusation.

I will be happy to see them all shamed and have to pay a pretty penny for their humiliating treatment of her. Good Lord, is this some third world country we're talking about here that hands out such injustice?

When I hear about things like this, I'm reminded of Christine Collins (portrayed by Angelina Jolie in The Changeling):


Three weeks later, Christine Collins returned to see Captain Jones and persisted in her claim that the boy was not Walter. Even though she was armed with dental records proving her case, Jones had Collins committed to the psychiatric ward at Los Angeles County Hospital under a "Code 12" internment—a term used to jail or commit someone who was deemed difficult or inconvenient. During Collins' incarceration, Jones questioned the boy,[15] who admitted to being 12-year-old Arthur Hutchins Jr., a runaway from Illinois, but who was originally from Iowa.[49][50] A drifter at a roadside café in Illinois had told Hutchins of his resemblance to the missing Walter, so Hutchins came up with the plan to impersonate him. His motive was to get to Hollywood so he could meet his favorite actor, Tom Mix.[48] Collins was released ten days after Hutchins admitted that he was not her son,[51] and filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department.[15] This aspect of the case is depicted in the 2008 film Changeling,[5] although in the film Hutchins does not confess until after Mrs. Collins has been released.

Obviously, everybody involved with her detention had an inability to test reality.

"She says she's some powerful person with an important job!"
"She's black and she ain't obama, lock that crazy woman up!"

life can be just that surreal sometimes.
Hope those doctors get fired though, i mean if that's how they go about their job
"this person said something i don't have existing knowledge of, she must be crazy!"

jesus christ, i hope everyone responsible pays for what happened to this poor women. what a total nightmare. they take her car for no reason, take her to a psych ward for no reason and then sedate her and force her to stay for 8 god damned days?! in new york you can only be in a ward against your will if you are a danger to yourself, a danger to others or are unable to take care of yourself. wasn't she allowed a phone call? why couldn't she just log in to her #ing twitter again to prove that barrack followed her on twitter? there are SO many things wrong with this whole situation its scary.

The sad reality is this happens far more often than most realize but people don't speak out because it means having to admit you were involuntarily committed... all it takes is one person with an ax to grind to say you threatened to hurt yourself and off you go for 72 hours that will destroy the rest of your life...

Yeah, sue for millions. That will really show them.

Seriously, I am in the legal profession and I cringe when yall act as if that will in any way punish the wrongdoers.

You want money you sue, you want justice you find another remedy.

NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNTIL YOU START HOLDING PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS

voting politicians out of office and suing taxpayers are not holding people accountable..man up USA

That still doesn't not make them individually responsible. IMO, by committing this person to the psych ward, the doctors broke the hippocratic oath that says "do no harm".

Due to those responsible for this being stubborn and lazy, she could have lost her career and livelihood. Happy it's getting attention to shed the light on careless mistakes that happen probably all to often when dealing with mental health. Hope she gets her own justice as well.

She was literally locked away for being black and successful.

Hahahaha. Oh, and people will still claim we live in a "post racial society"

The world would be better on all fronts if wewere a smidgen more honest about everything. From technology to war, from finance to banking, to multinational agreements and monetary regimes...we should all just be a little more honest. You know what, it starts with us, the peasants.

We have a race problem in America, fact. No "but but but" None of that bull#. No more lies or half truths. No more, "Well, because it doesn't affect me, it isn't real." That thinking is how a war or pandemic gets to one's front doorstep without realizing it ever existed in the first place.

Honesty is all we need to survive. We just need a little more honesty on all fronts and we'll be ok. Until then, things like this, things like the German flight, and things like the current psy-ops in Yemen will continue to take place.

If Americans can't even be honest about race, why do they need the truth about 9/11, religion, the middle east, multilateral agreements, governance, the banking system, or extraterrestrial life etc etc?

I would say unbelievable,but this country blows my mind a lot of times. Anything can happen here including Veterans not getting the mental health care they need,while perfectly normal people are locked up for stupid reasons.
