What is this if not a clear case of government employees giving kids drugs in order to make them more docile and compliant? Kids are being trained to live in a world in which the state drugs people to keep them in line. There’s nothing new about teachers prescribing drugs; what’s interesting here is the sheer number of kids in the U.K. being doped up by representatives of the state.
Teachers have been blamed for the record number of children prescribed ‘chemical cosh’ drugs such as Ritalin.
There are now some 650,000 eight to 13-year-olds on the drug or its equivalents.
This marks an astonishing rise, up from 92,700 in 1997 and just 9,000 in 1990, according to NHS figures.
Yesterday it emerged the vast majority of the children were given the potent drug on the instruction of their teacher.
Critics say staff are too quick to dish out drugs if their pupils get restless – in an effort to keep control of the classroom. And experts warned of the damage inflicted on ‘developing minds.’

But according to a federal complaint filed yesterday, within minutes of the stop Landau was being beaten by three Denver cops, two of whom were wielding a radio and a flashlight as bludgeons. When it was all over, he was taken to Denver Health to be treated for a broken nose, lacerations and closed head injuries — but not before he demanded somebody take photos of him.
The lengthy and detailed complaint is the latest in a string of high-profile cases of alleged police brutality incidents that have captured local headlines and led to the resignation of Denver Manager of Safety Ron Perea. The issue was even discussed during the swearing-in ceremony of interim mayor Bill Vidal earlier today.
Landau’s story may add fuel to the fire — especially since one of the officers named in his complaint, Randy Murr, also played a role in the controversial police beating of Michael deHerrera. The complaint filed on Landau’s behalf notes that in the process of the traffic stop, police found marijuana on Landau’s passenger, a fellow student named Addison Hunold, and proceeded to search Landau’s car. Apparently the situation spun out of control when the cops asked Landau if they could search his trunk and Landau stepped towards them, asking if they had a warrant. Allegedly the three officers then on the scene – Murr, Ricky Nixon and Tiffany Middleton — then proceeded to punch him in the face and then, once he fell over, beat him for several minutes, with one officer yelling, “He’s going for the gun.” According to the complaint, when it was all over, Landau heard one officer say to him, “Where’s that warrant now, you fucking nigger?
