Thorazine than deportation?



Some Detainees Are Drugged For Deportation


The U.S. government has injected hundreds of foreigners it has deported with dangerous psychotropic drugs against their will to keep them sedated during the trip back to their home country, according to medical records, internal documents and interviews with people who have been drugged.

The government's forced use of antipsychotic drugs, in people who have no history of mental illness, includes dozens of cases in which the "pre-flight cocktail," as a document calls it, had such a potent effect that federal guards needed a wheelchair to move the slumped deportee onto an airplane.

2. umm ,dude
this issue ain't funny or insignificant.

The ICE centers are run by Haliburton..and the people being drugged are being deported .I fear they might not be aware of where they are going being sedated like that.Psychotropic drugs are hideous,I have had these kinds of drugs forced into my body .So this makes me pissed. The police were dragging people treating them like objects.

This attitude twords people is sickening.

Some people in this country are xenophobic and think nothing of forcing people to take dangerous drugs.

7. I am sorry, for not answering just a simple K&R.
I am also sorry that I didn't express myself well enough to let you know that my first post was an attempt at humor.
