Why I protest discrimination by Bowling Green, Ohio legal system:
Lawmen lying about me for Bowling Green prosecutors.
Bowling Green Prosecutor Reger ordered harassing me?
Bowling Green agents illegally sent threats using my medical providers.
Counselor calls me marked man, etc.
Are FBI agents handicapped like me?
The FBI is not accountable to the law it appears..
Common good is excuse to harm odd individuals?
Proven medical malpractice might have killed me - vitamins are important!
Medical records show my complaints of increasing confusion and fatigue were not taken seriously for over ten years now. The worst medical malpractice happened the last few years resulting in considerable documented harm to myself.
Improper blood tests in the records missed a well known cause of confusion and fatigue. This was despite the recommend testing every five years for all patients diagnosed with these mental health symptoms. My body was not absorbing enough of vitamin B12 which often occurs with people like myself who develop obvious digestion issues.
Since my bipolar was under control when I had honest doctors in the army and soon afterwards it gives me hope that with proper help for the damage caused by extended b12 deficiency that I may be able to live a more normal life again after these last dozen years of life misdirected and basically lost because of the recorded medical malpractice.

I support the Occupy Bowling Green protesters who have been arrested demonstrating against the two-faced leaders of Bowling Green, Ohio which includes Administrator John Fawcett.
The occupy Bowling Green links above are only a start of my support since I have already experienced the retaliation taken by Bowling Green business which was upset at my own picketing of corrupt enforcement of local laws.
I notice news articles only mention laws the protesters may have violated.
As a fact local agents have violated local laws themselves without being
prosecuted, like evidence suggests Bowling Green prosecutor Reger had done
himself by obstructing my criminal complaints concerning him and court
agents lying about my legal status.
About me versus Bowling Green, Ohio:
I do not hate anyone who has illegally harmed me. What I hate is that Prosecutor Matthew Reger and agents of the Bowling Green, Ohio legal system refuse to listen and address problems of how I was treated like the videos I provide on this website.
If I had been treated with respect then I may have been convinced the Prosecutor Reger was a victim of the Jaycees civic group we were in lying that he had falsely reported me as having a plea bargain admission of guilt from a dismissed 1999 case he prosecuted against me.
Only in 2008 did Prosecutor Reger finally confirm the truth that I was a victim of criminal extortion by members of the local and national Jaycees civic group, now called JCI.
Unfortunately I was not told the truth about my legal status by agents of the Bowling Green, Ohio, city court until after they arrested me and prosecuted me for picketing my being a victim of crime because local police refused to take my complaints and investigate honestly as official records show.
Look up Michael Lake in the records of Bowling Green, Ohio police or
the court and see obvious official misconduct for yourself if you know
what you are looking for. (I admit you need to know the laws and
rules for members of the legal system to recognize official misconduct
so I will be providing more details on this website. Some details
are in the videos.)
lack the professionalism to listen and improve.

Introduction: email from Sheriff
Unwanted victims, do not expect honest help from lawmen!
The following e-mail is from the Wood County, Ohio, sheriff. Instead of investigating my complaints that witnesses have implicated the Bowling Green, Ohio, city court in crimes against me by promoting a 1999 dismissed case as being a plea bargain, the sheriff blew me off directing me to the police reporting to that very court.
Police records show they also failed verifying court documents versus my evidence of being illegally blackmailed. Lawmen recorded being told that I was nuts so they plotted to arrest me in 2008 while I was picketing the lies about me. Internet court records show that I am currently on probation with that very Bowling Green, Ohio, city court witnesses have implicated in crimes against me!
Judge Reddin and Sheriff Wasylyshyn do not seem to care about terrorizing
me with the fear of being prosecuted in a court venue that Ohio attorney
Scott W. Spencer and other witnesses implicated in crimes against me which
I have not seen formally investigated to prove or disprove!
- (You can copy and use this cartoon if left as is.)
Two years ago I discovered MentalHealthStigma.com which inspired my efforts to confront stigma, like in the cartoon. Mental illness seems to be a bigger money maker for news and movies than it is a social issue!
This cartoon also shows why it is easier to write about these issues than to talk about them. Bowling Green, Ohio, and the army are my strongest experiences with this social evil.
Mental health is a best guess because there is no exact science.
Asperger Disorder with the hidden symptoms of autism is a better diagnosis than the army's diagnosis of bipolar disorder. For more also see : See my Asperger's Syndrome webpage.

The Three Faces of Life:
There is what people expect you to be,Vote on the best protest signs:
there is what you want to be,
and what you must be to survive.
(Mental health support tends to fail because it ignores these three faces of life.)
Who I am:
Contrast between my abilities and influence of problems started in the army is "tearing my mind apart". Practical issues matter!
|I recently invented the "Parabolic Discone", "liquid metal elastic stretchable wire", and other ideas. I have the genius to contribute to society in major ways despite mental illness (like the movie "A Beautiful Mind").||1||In the army a diagnosis of mental illness subjected me to fear, bigotry and hate. As a result the army and civic group claim I am a Dangerous Person. These claims destroyed my social life and hope for a family. My regular Veterans Affairs mental health doctors have ignored these issues. (See va-award, page 3, "Ann Arbor" and compare with real evidence on this website.)|
|1988: When entering the army I proved my abilities and graduated the top of my class in electronics warfare school.||2||1989: After army school I was diagnosed with a mental illness, "bipolar disorder". The army punished me for this medical problem. I believe the memories haunt me today as PTSD.|
|1999: Instead of letting my past experience and society be a "destructive influence", I started looking for the truth myself. This website is a record of that quest. My getting into Ham Radio and ability to invent patentable inventions are how I have tried to help myself.||3||2003: I have written government leaders like Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Senator Mike DeWine, and Ohio Governor Bob Taft looking for support with my VA and government connected problems (unethical Ohio legal system, etc.). They do not seem to understand the truth!|
|2003: I overcame the most terrifying of my problems. I had seemed to be in a trance or "dream" for most of the time since the army, as if I had no control over my fate. It appeared to be like a continuous type of PTSD and related to stress and stigma.||4||2003: Despite breaking my past trance, I developed a "replacement problem". I had not tried very hard to find out why I was limping until my foot went numb. A spinal cord tumor ultimately caused me to be paralyzed. Depression and anger started to be more of an issue.|
|?||5||In the past I have hidden my problems with mental illness by using determination and genius. Today I am paralyzed and the effort it takes to deal with physical problems makes it harder to deal with my mental health. Together these problems are too much to deal with at times.|
|I could potentially support myself working a few hours a week on patentable ideas. (Most of my time is spent taking care of myself or resting due to fatigue from being paralyzed.)||6||I do not have the money, time, or ability to patent my ideas or protect my legal rights. My disability income is barely enough to survive on. Trying to publish my ideas has been a problem. It is hard to focus and write good articles when your mind is in chaos and your bladder feels like it is turning inside out.|
|Credit Cards and finances have not been a major problem because I keep paying ahead one month, so that if I forget it will not hurt me.||7||Because I "appear" to be so good with credit, they have given me more than they should. At the moment my income balances with the credit card payments, mortgage, property tax, utilities, car payments, insurance, with a little left for food. I fool myself into thinking I can afford things, then pinch pennies trying to un-do the damage.|
|I believe that compassion is my greatest strength, and also "The meaning of life, the universe, and everything."||8||I also believe that this world may destroy it's self due to a growing lack of compassion in society.|
|2006: Instead of waiting for VA help, I paid for counseling. The non-VA counselor said that it had been my choice in the army and civic group. I could have gone AWOL in the army to escape. A co-worker was part of the civic group, so quitting my job would have been necessary. Where these fair choices?||9||2006: The VA finally gave me counseling in response to my "angry" letter. Unfortunately they are worried about my anger and not the issues that are making me angry.|
|When I became paralyzed the VA provided great medical support. I was given therapy and advice on dealing with the world. They gave me things to help deal with life like wheelchairs and a lift for my van.||1
|I have constantly told doctors in the VA about about my mental health problems, and they did very little to help other than drugs. I feel that the VA mental health system is almost worthless for providing practical support! Why did they provide so much support for my being paralyzed but not for mental illness?|
Do I have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?
I believe I developed "Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder" (PTSD) in army.
It started in 1989 after diagnosed with BiPolar Disorder.
See evidence to support having Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
|Hardball about Mental illness,
Stigma and Society
This is how I am dealing with stigma of "my" mental illness, bipolar disorder. As a disabled veteran, I should feel proud that I protected and served my country. Instead many people think I am dangerous like Rambo in the movie "First Blood". This is what law enforcement and "experts" claimed.
The best way for the mentally ill to fight back is to play "hardball". Who cares if the mentally ill are victims? Authorities will use hardball to claim that someone is sick, dangerous, or a killer - even if it is a lie! When the mentally ill complain of a crime, who is willing to investigate?
Harassment was the army's response after I was diagnosed with mental illness in 1989. Medical people said I could be a productive soldier. My chain of command convinced me that I am worthless.Why Hope to survive with stigma or mental illness? This website has (had, updating Dec.2011) over 200 pages of evidence about my experience:
My favorite links related to mental illness:
Webrings that I belong to.

On this website (being edited Dec. 2011):
Does the VA care about harm caused by the army? - My "service connected" mental illness results in poor health and social problems. For trying to serve and protect our nation, do I deserve to be forgotten? The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has failed to provide the support that I request.
My Photos - Look at photos from the life of someone with mental illness. These pictures may surprise some people. It was too easy to forget the good in my life after I had been confronted for being mentally ill.
My life - mental illness is creativity or danger? - Doctors did not warn me about the social dangers of living with a mental illness, Bipolar Disorder. Mental Health workers and psychiatrists did not tell me about discrimination or the ADA, the Americans with Disabilities Act. All the important things I had to learn after I was attacked for being mentally ill. I also discuss Schizoaffective Disorder, which is like mild schizophrenia.
In court, they say that I will kill them - they claim "... It is well-recognized that persons suffering from manic depression often contemplate and even act upon their suicidal thoughts. Unfortunately, all too often persons having such low self-esteem and death wishes chose to kill others in conjunction with destroying themselves."
Credit Cards bad for m
entally ill?- The confusion and impulses with mental illnesses make credit cards risky: 1. Do youunderstand the real risks when you sign for one? 2. Would youremember not to go over your limit and send payments in time? 3. What ifyou ended up in the hospital?
What I have learned by running this website - Why hope to change anything if the people who need to listen will not? Hate Crimes are acceptable against the Mentally ill? - Saint Joan of Arc experienced "voices and visions" and was murdered for it. NAMI* and other advocates cause harm?
History - Old copies of this website.

* 4 - BiPolar Disorder has been called:
BiPolar illness, Manic Depressive illness, Bi-Polar Disorder, Bi-Polar
Mood Disorder and variations.
Plus the national Jaycees civic group claims that people with bipolar disorder are known to kill and can not be members of their group, which expresses the public discrimination against people who get the label of a mental illness. To this date the Jaycees organization refuses to disclaim the past views it has put into the legal record, so the Jaycees apparently do not mind being labeled themselves as a possible hate group.
Bowling Green, Ohio, police recorded abuse of power helping Jaycees.
