Hate Crimes

Do the law enforcement officers, school administrators, workplace management teams, health care
administrators, et al., around this country understand the nature of the hate crimes perpetrated
against the already chemically injured? We are disabled by chemicals you may think of as
benign, but believe me, that simply means you have a lot to learn. At least word is now getting out
on the harmful effects of pesticides, but the ignorance that continues to be shown by the
powers that be amazes me.

I keep asking myself: If county health officials, members of the local police, doctors, and various
management teams are still clueless about the effects of pesticides, acute and chronic, then how can
I expect them to understand about poisoning someone by perfume? Nonetheless, I fully expect
that they will use EHN’s site to educate themselves about the toxins in pesticides and perfumes
and then PROTECT those who have filed complaints against neighbors, colleagues, peers, and
even members of management, who engage in hate crimes against the already chemically injured.

Hate crimes against people who are paint-, perfume-, pesticide (HYDROCARBON)-poisoned can
take the form of spraying pesticides on windy days so the chemicals spread, paint without
warning, dump their paint clean-up on the property of the already injured, spray perfume
around the work area of the individual, spray a fellow student in the face with perfume, spray
pesticides or fragrances outside of doors, use fabric softeners at such a time as to adversely
affect the health of the person the hate is directed against,… etc.

Frankly, I’ve come to learn through my own experiences and those of others, that there is no limit
to their imaginative means of further poisoning us. This has got to stop! And, it is up to the
people with authority, to start believing the already chemically disabled people when we
try to report such actions. Please do not dismiss us, further stultify us. We are not insane, but
lack of concern and action by authority is maddening.

To those in authority, I plead: Think of us as having a violent act committed against us. As
with others under such circumstances, we become desperate, we may not be seen by you as fully
rational at the moment. That would be a given for anyone suffering a traumatic event. But,
it is more than just the emotional jolt that is normal to any other human being who has been hurt
and intimidated by another, we have become poisoned by the chemicals that include

Neurotoxins adversely affect the brain and the nervous systems. And knowing that, folks, is how
I got myself through my years of harassment by a very few managers and colleagues — it only
takes one to pollute air and body. I told myself they were mentally affected by the very poisons
they used and weren’t in their “right” minds. Believe me, I had to remind myself of that daily
and I didn’t care whether that was a vialble excuse for their heinous actions, it kept me going
in the workplace where I had to remain civil to them. Why not contact a lawyer, you might ask.
I did. Several. A chemically disabled individual, it seems, is fair game. And from the request
for help that I get, I don’t see that changing. Yet.

    Thank you so much for this article. I feel more empowered to stand up for myself for what I have already known. After years of being told “It’s not our fault you’re so sensitive.” by supposed friends that commenced doing something nearby me that I would react to, or being told to “just get over it” by family, or similar things by co-workers, I now see that I do have a right to feel safe and protected. I’m so glad to see that there are people standing up for these hate crimes. They are hate crimes. You are right. Thank you.

    I was assaulted in a Berkeley city park by a small group of males who were smoking in my face, then physically assaulted me by repeatedly kicking soccer balls near and on my face. since i am physically disabled as well i had to literally crawl away as i was trying to rest under a Redwood tree after a day of exposures. i did call the police and it is listed as hate crime, but they could not find the perps. This was in Cedar rose park in north Berkeley.
