RETIRED DETROIT POLICE SARGENT WALTER R. CLEMENT IS BEING DENIED ADEQUATE PAIN CARE BY THE LAW
My brother is dying from Amyotrophic Lateral Sceloris (ALS), an extremely painful neurologic chronic disorder, and the medical treatment has been deplorable.
The current physician training is designed around torture in not treating pain. This is especially if you are black and live in Detroit, where many pain maintenance treatment centers have mostly been shut down by DOJ-DEA, and the pain care one does receive is highly inefficient.
Now, let’s fast backward 30 years ago; our mother suffered from ALS. However, the doctors at that time treated her pain. Our mother never was allowed to suffer pain from the excruciating powerful muscle spasm; times have seemingly changed.
What happens if, God forbid when it becomes my turn? Will I be required to suffer, too, like my brother and our dad did at 104 years of age, of being denied access to proper pain care by misplaced law enforcement medical policies criminalizing pain care?
OUR DAD DIED SUFFERING NEEDLESSLY FROM PAIN AND BEING STARVED OF HEALTHCARE, “TOO OLD TO LIVE“
Like our dad and mother, my brother had great insurance after retiring 35 years from the Detroit Police Department. He had experienced everything from being a patrolman, scuba diver, swat team member, being shot by a gunman, and the ultimate from having to return fire.
NORMAN, I’M LOSING HOPE
Walter Clement June 2022:
“Norman, I’m losing hope; I’m in so much pain I have tried to learn to live with it…I can not walk, I’m losing my speech, and I cannot clean myself… “the pain in my cervical spine is unbearable…I’m losing my mind…. the doctors are giving me nothing for the pain except for gabapentin, and it is not working… they ignore my complaining…I’m suffering… I’m being tortured…can you help me, Norman…”
“…my pain is so intense that parts of my body seem to shut down…”
CRIMINALIZATION OF PAIN CARE
Medical care and patient safety are under attack. Physicians spend years training to be able to take care of their patients safely. However, legislators with no medical training are passing laws signed into law by governors without medical training.
Would any of these individuals let an untrained individual take care of their medical needs?
..”DO THEY EVER FEEL OUR PAIN..”
Walter Clement December 2021:
“I cry at night because my pain is so intense. Yet no one gives a dam. You fight for masks, infrastructure, budgetary crisis, and the right to carry a gun—none of these matters to me.
a) Where are all my rights?
b) Where is my justice to be free or manage my pain?
I went to a doctor, yet he lost his license due to treating pain. I was stunned to find that many doctors are in prison because they treat and manage patients in pain.
As my tears fall, where were all the people that could correct this matter? I can no longer carry my weapon. I can no longer take my wallet out of my pocket. I can no longer work out at the gym. I can no longer cook my food. I can no longer wash my back or clean my behind. I can barely dress. I can barely feed myself. My pain is so intense that part of my body seems to shut down.
All of this is because of pain. No one seems to give a damn about my pain and my suffering. I’m seeing attempts to control what they think is criminal contempt, yet I am suffering.
I am hurting; I am in chronic pain;
c) What did we build America for, for the people, or for the ideological philosophies that pain management is a crime?
d) Where are the judges, and where are the elected officials?
I dare you to stand up for the people to be free of pain. I dare you to stand up for the doctors who treat people who are in pain. As I suffer, my wife suffers, my kids suffer, my family suffers, I see and feel that our elected officials have failed us.”
Walter F. Wrenn MD, April 2022:
Why do they believe they can write and pass a law without medical knowledge?
This has to be the absolute example of stupidity. Politics and the misplaced energy spent on attacking abortion have fueled this dangerous and unprecedented behavior. Medicine and Politics do not mix and set a dangerous precedence. What other medical conditions will legislators pass laws against?

WATCHING OUR DAD(ERLIN CLEMENT SR, 104 YEARS OLD, BEING STARVED AND DENIED PAIN CARE AND TREATMENT IN AUGUST 2021
“It has clearly been decided by the #CDC, #DEA, #PROP, and some state governments that killing pain patients from complications of untreated or under-treated chronic, severe pain by denying adequate access to the only medicine which controls such pain is permissible even desirable”
I am sickened every single time I read about another brother or sister with chronic pain & chronic illness that is being denied appropriate and adequate relief from their excruciating pain. Every fiber of my being becomes enraged.
Where has our collective humanity gone? We simply cannot cause tremendous harm to one group while trying to (irrationally) save another!!
Addiction is a serious public health issue but it is NOT the substance or mere exposure that causes addiction to develop in about 3-5% of the population. Addiction is a multifaceted mental and physical health condition. The rare chance it will develop from medical use of opioids is about 0.4 to 1%. Not nearly the rate which the propaganda as of late would have everyone believe.
The rate of addiction hasn’t changed since 1920! And while access to life saving prescription opioids have fallen by roughly 40% (or more), due to the “belief” that denying pain relief will spare everyone from addiction, fatal and non-fatal overdoses continue to skyrocket due to illicit opioids people buy on the streets.
If prescription opioids were the leading cause of opioid addiction we would have seen a dramatic decline in addiction rates, overdoses, and fatal overdoses.
Yes. At one time bad actors aka criminals who happened to have medical degrees took advantage of the effort by the healthcare industry to better and ubiquitously treat acute and chronic pain because for decades pain wasn’t something most healthcare providers took seriously and felt it was just a part of being sick or injured. So, they implemented the 5th vital sign. Pain became as important as our blood pressure, temperature etc. They began to recognize that treating pain meant better healing, less stress and anxiety, better sleep and so forth. Sadly, these bad actor’s greed caused widespread harm. Pills hit the streets b/c poverty flows through our nation unchecked and unabated. But no matter what happened it’s in great part in the past not to mention it was never a reason to deny the legitimate use of opioids for those that require them. We CAN work to help those with addiction, we CAN work toward lowering the risk where it may exist, and we can do these things while simultaneously providing pain relief to those in need!!
Addiction is treatable. Like many illness it waxes and wanes. It is typically a lifelong battle. But this doesn’t mean we deny treatment. It doesn’t mean we prevent access to relief. Every single life matters and holds value!! There is NO justified reason to force the HERO in this story to suffer in agony! You bet your sweet *** that if these folks that are making these policies were to ever develop ALS or ANY illness/disease that causes minute by minute agony that they would 100% demand opioid pain relief STAT!
So please, for the love of all that is holy and righteous do not judge, do not deny, do not forbid anyone from accessing what they need to lessen their suffering and pain no matter what the dose and no matter how frequently they need to take their medicine.
Please write to your local representatives, senate, DHHS, AMA, Whitehouse etc and let them know that this HERO is suffering needlessly and that countless people with chronic pain have been denied relief due to misinformation and irrational fears.
I will stand with you.
