The Baker Act: Florida's communist GULAG

The Baker act, also known as the Florida Mental Health Act of 1971, Florida Statute 394.451-394.47891 or commonly known as the Baker Act. A draconian and unjust law that allows the involuntary institutionalization and examination of an individual for any reason at all.

The Baker Act allows for involuntary examination (what some call emergency or involuntary commitment). It can be initiated by judges, law enforcement officials, physicians, or mental health professionals. There must be evidence that the person possibly has a mental illness or is a harm to self, harm to others or self neglectful. Truthfully these standards are broad and open to interpretation. Government employees, abusive relatives, crooked cops, teachers, and doctors have used it to deprive the innocent of their liberty.

Examinations and evaluations may last up to 72 hours. Baker acting occurs in over 100 Florida Department of Children and Families-designated receiving facilities statewide. There are many possible outcomes following examination of the patient, this includes the release of the individual to the community (or other community placement), a petition for involuntary inpatient placement, involuntary outpatient commitment, or voluntary treatment (if the person is competent to consent to voluntary treatment and consents to voluntary treatment).

The involuntary outpatient placement language in the Baker Act took effect as part of the Baker Act reform in 2005. The act was named for a Florida state representative from Miami, Maxine Baker, who is a supporter of communism and large government socialism and served as chair of a House Committee on Mental Health. Baker was the sponsor of this bill that has robbed many innocents of their liberty, dignity and property.

The Baker act is a favorite tool of the corrupt such as guardian appellate, abusive relatives, corrupt politicians and big business. Thanks to the Baker act, many innocent people such as Stodie Coleman and others have been robbed of their basic living and their liberty all thanks to the left.

The Baker act is also a favorite tool of social security which uses it to kill off poor people and their right to own property. The word of one government employee or one relative is all it takes to lock up Grandma and confiscate her entire estate. From there on then its either skid row, a nursing home, or the state hospital in Chattahoochee.

Not just the elderly suffer but even anyone can suffer. Have a disability? do people think you have a disability? POOF! Gone! No more money, no more rights. But what if you don't have a disability? Well they'll just make one up on the spot! POOF! REMEMBER! GOVERNMENT AND GOVERNMENT LICENSED PROFESSIONALS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT!!!!!

Before there was the NDAA, before the patriot act, there was the Baker act. This evil act is the antithesis to the constitution that must be challenged by Florida and godly Americans.

I’m a resident of Florida and a certified Behavior Analyst with some experience working in the State’s Mental Health Facilities. I am not disagreeing that there “could” be a “remote” chances for abuse but a “victim” would have to face review by a judge, law enforcement, and their families in order to be sent to a facility for evaluation.

Consider the alternatives... Look at all the mass shootings over the past view years by person’s obviously mental impaired whose concerned families were met by legal roadblocks while trying to get them institutionalized. The Baker act is a quick way of getting a disturbed person, who presents a danger to themselves or others, off the street.

Potentially violent mentally disturbed people are not only a threat to everybody but they are also a threat to our right to bear arms considering the liberal response to mass-shootings by deranged people.

How do we even know their families were blocked from institutionalizing them? I know people who were institutionalized, their abusive family met no road blocks. These were once productive healthy normal citizens who had their whole lives destroyed by psychiatry and the word of one abusive parent or relative.

These mass shooters weren't crazy. They were evil. You have bought into the liberal lie that no one is evil. This is what psychiatry does. It rationalizes why they did it. They did it because they were evil. Criminals do what they do because they were evil. The mental health system must be completely dismantled immediately.

To stop mass shooters and criminals, enforce the laws we have, don't make more, don't spend more, bring back the death penalty and stop coddling them.

mainestategop, you are absolutely correct. There is also a HUGE financial incentive for psychs to drug people and force them to be patients. The psych institutions and psych employed there are heavily supported financially by the State of Florida and also the Federal government (mainly the Florida Dept of children's and families). The psychs need to be criminally charged as the drug-dealers they are. Also noteworthy is that nutritional remedies for true mental conditions such as schizophrenia have been known since the 1940's. True Niacin (nicotinic acid {vitamin B3)) with a daily dose of 3.000 mg combined with 3,000 mg vitamin C will raise the co-enzyme levels of NAD in the brain within 90 days on 90% of the patients. This is a flat out cure. This was known since the 1940's when first tested by Dr Abram Hoffer with many repeat double-blind studies over the decades to include studies done by the Pauling Institute. (Linus Pauling being a 2 time Nobel prize winner). But we all known Florida is extremely corrupt, especially in it's medical system. The reality of the Florida baker Act is that psychs are destroying perfectly normal people for profit, while law-enforcement looks the other way.
