Garth Daniels is in a dangerous place...Garth Daniels has never stood in a witness box yet is unable to prevent being imprisoned in Victoria's dreaded jail... because that is what Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital is...it is a dentention centre for those mentally impaired who have been through the judical process and found guilty of a criminal offence.
NO EMERGENCY FACILITIES exist at this "hospital", no operating theatres, the only specialists located here it seems are psychiatrists, and; those medical registrars in hospital based psychiatric training. Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital is surrounded by ten metre high fences more akin to prison and a dentention centre...
Within the ten metre high fence are other caged units including another...an acute ward known as Argyle, also surrounded by a wired cage. A prison within a prison...housing fourteen residents. Further within its confines are found the rooms for solitary confinement.
Garth Daniels has no crime and no sentence against him yet he still languishes in Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital's Argyle Ward.
For the past five days Garth has been held in solitary confinement. To the parents of Garth Daniels political desenters and terrorists in this beautiful country of Australia are accorded more rights...unlike the former Apartheid South Africa. Why?
Garth Daniels has not self harmed or been a threat to the community. In fact Garth admitted himself to Frankston Hospital on the advice of his treating physicians because the drug which had been prescribed for him in injection form was causing him excruciating bodily harm.
Why? Why is it that Garth Daniels is considered dangerous! Garth Daniels has not committed any crime let alone murder yet he has now been held prisoner for 365 days.
The Clinical Director of Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital(sic)is Dr. Maurice Magner from South Africa, who refuses to meet with the Daniels' family informing them that they are too emotionally charged.
