Nurse Wubbels refused to comply and take the blood of a patient, even though a police officer had ordered her to do so. Because she would not, he arrested her and handcuffed her. Other police officers saw this outrageous incident and did not intervene or protest.
The nurse released video of the event, shaming the police. They have since changed their tune.
Now the police department has praised her saying:
"Protecting the rights of others is truly a heroic act."
I too refused, when ordered to stop my writing to protect the rights of others. In my case, the others, being children, made this urgent and essential.
I just would not stop my writing. I had to warn the public against the dangers of a particular paedophile, who was going to have contact with children. I posted warnings on the internet. I alerted and put pressure on all the relevant statutory bodies. I helped empower others to protest, who were outraged because they knew children the paedophile had abused.
I was ordered to stop my writing, but I refused. I was arrested and handcuffed. However, I wouldn't stop writing, until I was successful in ensuring the paedophile was barred from having any further contact with children. I did succeed. The paedophile was barred. I was able then to stop my writing. Not because I had been ordered to do so, but because I could, with a clear conscience, knowing the children were safe.
The difference between our two cases though, is that I can't release a video, or photographs, or in fact any information whatsoever about the police or the authorities (or even the paedophile) because I have been gagged and nor can the media, because they also have been gagged.
Because the authorities are as culpable for how they treated me, as they are for how they treated Nurse Wubbels.
But one day, when the facts are revealed and the truth is known, they too will need to change their tune and say what the Rigby police department is now saying:
"Protecting the rights of others is truly a heroic act."
I am deeply grateful that those who know me, have already said it.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man.
To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression
is truly an act of a pure heart."
