Lawsuit by family of drugged Detrick employee dismissed

While noting that many claims in a lawsuit filed by children of a former Fort Detrick scientist are supported by public records, a federal judge dismissed the case Wednesday.

Sixty years ago, Frank Olson fell to his death after a CIA drug experiment.

Someone once told me the head of this program as well as many other secret and ultra high profile projects involving the CIA, NASA, USAF, UN, was a brilliant wealthy Doctor from Fredneck and lived in a big mansion off Shookstown Rd.


It's a sad story and I hate that it ended the way that it did, but how many times are they going to bring up the same case with the same evidence and end up with the same result. It's really time to move on.


Stop trying to suck off the federal wel-fare teet. Stop this sue happy crap people pull.


So , the Nazis party was not the only ones experimenting with items to change people.


The bigger question should be, was he murdered or not, because there is no statute of limitations on murder.


um, are ya sure about that? Frankly "rank Olson died Nov. 28, 1953, after falling from the 13th floor of the Statler Hotel in Manhattan. " nope, not murder, that would be suicide.


Maybe you could still volunteer for the LSD trials and we could see if you fall from a 13th floor window.


My dad died at 49 my mother only got 250.00 from social security i'll sue for the rest.No difference he and his employer paid much more, legal???It may work.


Your father was not a government guinea pig. Gee I thought your family didn't take any freebies from the government. Perhaps you should pay back that $250. Your mother probably got widows benefits too or did you support your mother in her old age?


Just the other day President, you said your father died at the ripe old age of 82 in Tennessee though..






Government shouldn't be mapping the brain to find a cure for alzheimers or parkinson. That kind of knowledge is just too dangerous.


I had a great, great, great uncle who was an American Indian in the 1800s. Maybe I can sue for his death! I never knew him, but I'm sure that his pain and suffering caused my family harm in some way. Maybe I should sue the government. Then again, I'm not a money grabbing troll who expects compensation for the suffering of others.


Really? A "great uncle from the 1800's" is comparable to your OWN FATHER? Those are his actual kids fool. Their dad was taken from them and they literally grew up without a father ...... but that's the same as a distant relative you've never met from the 1800's? That's pretty insensitive don't you think? Do a tad bit of research on this particular topic and you might find some interesting stuff. Oh, but you probably don't have time for that because you're too busy trolling around forums being a little keyboard ninja.


Their father was drugged, and died, as the result of a secret chemical experiment on an American citizen. Was your " great, great, great uncle" the victim of a secret laboratory experiment to see what would happen when he was given a drug known to induce psychosis? You idiot![scared]


Much hate in Fullgrin's heart.[ban]
