You know, the usual racist behaviour in these kind of situations, white people who go on killing sprees get “he was a really nice man, but mentally disturbed?? no idea” while everyone else gets “HE WAS NO ANGEL!!!”
Here’s the thing though.
This is the guy the smear articles are talking about.
This is the guy who was dragged off the plane.
See the difference?
David A. Dao vs. David T. D. Dao.
United Airlines can’t even run a smear campaign properly. Two Asian doctors, registered in different states, and they manage to do this.
Hopefully those sleazy press outlets get hit with libel lawsuits!
EDIT: And of course, it goes without saying that even IF the accusations were true, that it’s completely irrelevant to what happened on the plane.
In 1896, Essex County Asylum for the Insane was build on 325 acres of lane in Cedar Grove, New Jersey. The asylum was more commonly referred to as Overbrook. From the onset, the asylum was at full capacity, often housing thousands of patients at once. Additionally, the asylum was severely understaffed. On the grounds of the asylum stood a train station, as well as a power house and a boiler. The patients at the asylum were mostly fed by food that was grown in the fields on the grounds. A bakery and firehouse were also built within the complex of Overbrook.
It was said that it was a town within a town, but with an ever growing patient list combined with minimal staff and developing drugs, it was set up to fail, and fail it certainly did. Due to the sheer amount of patients, many were left without a bed and were forced to sleep on the cold asylum floors. In 1917, disaster struck when the asylum’s only boiler malfunctioned and 24 inmates froze to death in their beds while they slept. Disease was often rampant in Overbrook.
As time progressed and mental health issues became better understood, grim methods such as lobotomies and electroshock therapy became outdated. This was a blow to the already failing asylum, who used both methods in abundance. The asylum eventually closed in 2007, with over 10,000 patients dying within the confines of the walls. It isn’t much surprise that many say Overbrook is haunted - several visitors have claimed to witness a nurse wearing a 19th century nurses uniform, walking around the asylum conducting checks.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my amazing Secret Valentine, @starscythe!!! I do hope you enjoy this gift, my friend, as you gift us with so many incredible manips all year long. Meeting you in person in November was such a joy, and I hope we can hug in person again in the near future.
He’s heard stories, of course, broken whispers
whenever a fierce storm blew in unexpectedly, mumbled musings if an
acquaintance suddenly fell ill. These are never voiced loudly, as superstition’s
lingering hold on the forest proves to be an ominous task master, leaving such
wonderings to drift from one listener to the next, more often than not finding
fertile ground stripped bare by black magic’s lingering touch.
The Evil Queen’s dark curse had taken many, but
there are those among the forest’s remnants who believe she herself still
dwells in this realm. They speak of her in hushed fragments, discuss sightings
of a dark, solitary figure who roams the forest at night, a cloaked woman who
has somehow lost her magic but now lives bound to it, perhaps in just
retribution for a curse so foul it emptied their lands and cast both friend and
foe into fates unknown.
Robin has never put much stock into
superstition, neither does he give credence to legends or fairy lore. His is a
world defined by what he can see, touch and confiscate, a world in which people
rarely fit into molds of “good” or “evil”, a world in which he’s observed
unspeakable acts committed by the most respected of citizens while those judged
as lesser are the very ones who offer shelter and food to the starving. He
lives by his wits and senses and surrounds himself with a thieving group of
outcasts he’d readily give his life to protect.
Yet even he, the infamous Robin Hood, has to
admit that the air feels odd tonight, that there is a charge to the impending
storm brewing in the eastern highlands that makes the hairs on the back of his
neck prickle. He senses a disturbance, one that feels altogether too personal
and close at hand for comfort. Roland must have felt it, too, for the boy had
clung to him as Robin soothed his son’s whimpers until he’d finally fallen into
a fitful sleep.
It is enough for him to grudgingly admit that
tinges of magic probably remain in his forest, even if the queen is nowhere to
be found. Dreams of Marian and of his mother plague his sleep and fill him with
sense of urgency altogether foreign, one that pushes him towards consciousness
even as his body rebels.
A loud clap of thunder finally awakens him, and
he’s surprised to find that he’s drenched in sweat. Roland is still sleeping
soundly, but one touch to his son’s forehead reveals that the boy is hot with
fever. He holds his child close, drawing the blankets up around him, but he
worries as all parents do, even as the wind howls just outside their tent.
Roland needs feverfew tea. Unfortunately, their
stashes of medicinal herbs have run dry in light of the recent bout of sickness
that have ravaged both his men and their families, and he lies there only minutes
before deciding to risk a trip to the lake’s edge to gather what he needs. He
wakes Little John and asks his friend to keep an ear and eye out for his son
before donning his thickest cloak and disappearing into the forest’s canopy.
He’s survived far worse storms than this, he reminds himself, ignoring the
tingling sensations skittering up his legs that feel altogether supernatural.
People with Pluto in the 4th house partially exist in the space beneath us. Profound messages of spiritual guidance generate through the unconscious and express vividly through the individual’s conscious intuition, dream, and imagination. The ancestral heritage with Pluto in the 4th is fascinatingly rich. There is a sacred essence about the birth of this child. She is the heiress of century’s old wisdom, knowledge, and magic. The individual has a powerful memory that may replay events of past lives or trauma. The familiar feeling of family may come through intimacy with the invisible. Unseen voices, messages of counsel from higher guardians, and an unconscious palace of unconscious safety may become home. This can create an internalized or seemingly isolated person. This sense of separation from the world can emanate pure bliss for the individual or lonely horror.
The individual with Pluto in the 4th house has a volatile inner experience. Emotions ingress from the unconscious, so the individual’s mood may abruptly change with seemingly no causation. This can generate endless confusion and aggression at the self in the Pluto in the 4th individual. Memories may be distorted by the emotional state and trigger delusion and false recollections of betrayal. The fear of abandonment may be self undoing with Pluto in the 4th. However, there is a rabbit inside calling with the echo of God. This feeling of being abandoned on earth can find peace in divine intimacy, and the longing and capacity for this union is so profound and majestic that the individual seeks intense bonds with other people. Those who the individual accepts into their inner circle become family. Because the individual is typically quite private and reticent to trust, this circle can be extremely hard to gain entry. This may be a side effect of early betrayal. The individual may have been the possible witness to an event she was never meant to see, or confront demons of inheritance like a mentally disturbed parent or generational cycles of dysfunction. The individual’s feeling of safety may have been compromised in some way, like she never had the sense of stability or protection. Maybe something like her parents remaining in an unhappy marriage and silent resentment wounding her sensitivity occurred.
There is an invisible depth with Pluto in the 4th. The individual may seek to destruct family patterns because the destruction seemed so raw to them. This is a psychological soul probe. A mask is worn in everyday life, but sheer power, resilience, and psychic energy is generating if you only stare a little harder. The individual makes a natural psychoanalyst and easily perceives the spiritual energy of other people. They conceive concealed undercurrents and consult with a spellbook inside. Solitude and isolation associates with Pluto in the 4th. Much of the individual’s experience exists on the inner world, so blankets of life can occur in withdrawal. This sort of intense internalized focus provides a self sufficiency that eases the abandonment fears and allows the individual to explore the sorcery that exists in their individual being. Because there seemed to be little separation from the self and the mother for much of life, despite the individual’s withdrawal, there can be a dependency on other people because she feels she does not exist without them. But here the opposite could be true. There is such lost mystique and sacred knowledge dwelling in Pluto in the 4th people. She is a magnet for those seeking answers and prophecy. Without knowing it, an illuminated temple resides behind the eyes.

Letchworth Village was a psychiatric hospital located in Rockland County, New York. It housed patients ranging from newborn to elderly. It opened in 1911 and was rife with reports of unfair treatment of the patients ranging from patients being unclothed and neglected to reports of rape. In 1996, the psychiatric hospital was closed down and has since fallen to disrepair. To add insult to injury, there are a number of numbered gravestones hidden among the woodland. These unnamed gravestones belong to those who never made it out of Letchworth. After a number of years, a bronze monument was erected at the entrance of the cemetery which lists around 900 names. However, these names are not linked to the plots in which patients were buried but they are believed to be buried in the cemetery somewhere. Some of these people are identified simply as “Baby Girl” or “Baby Boy.”
