      Satanists accused of ordering serial killings By John Phillips in Rome
      7/30/04 "Police in northern Italy say they have smashed a vicious gang of satanists,
      following the arrest this week of three men accused of ordering the murder of
      at least five young people in the Milan area since 1998. Officers identified
      the trio as Paolo "Ozzy" Leoni, 27, the alleged charismatic leader of the
      group, Eros Monterosso, 27, and Marco Zampollo, 26, taking to eight the total
      number of alleged sect members arrested in the case that has shocked the Roman
      Catholic region of Lombardy. A turning point in the investigation came when two
      other alleged members of the group, Andrea Volpe and a minor named only as
      Massimino M, turned state's evidence, judicial sources said. The three were
      arrested on Tuesday night for allegedly ordering the ritual murders of Chiara
      Marino, 19, and Fabio Tollis, 18, in January 1998."

      article describes violent crimes - Possession and the law by Sarah Duguid
      7/30/04 "In 1981 Colonel Kobus Jonker joined a charismatic church and became a
      born-again Christian. At the time, he was a respected senior detective with
      the South African police.....Jonker is utterly convinced of the reality of a
      dark underbelly of Satanic activity in the Christian world: this woman's death
      changed his life. He stopped investigating murder and robberies and began to
      devote himself to fighting Satanism full-time. In the course of his work, he
      says, he helped people possessed by demons to find Jesus. He interviewed a woman
      whose voice turned into a growl deeper than anything he had heard before. He
      describes watching as a pentagram inexplicably appeared in blood on a suspect's
      arm. He tells how he thwarted a female assassin working for a Satanic coven
      who turned up at his office clutching a pistol inside her handbag. She left
      still clutching the gun, her hand seemingly paralysed by his prayers. Jonker's
      bosses remained steadfastly cynical; they rolled their eyes at his stories. But
      when he raided a house in 1991 and found a Bible bound in chains, the walls
      smeared with blood and a Chinese woman's head in a cupboard, his commanding
      officers were finally persuaded to start the Occult Related Crime Unit (ORCU), with
      Colonel Jonker at its helm. Last year, the unit claims, it made 70 successful
      prosecutions under the 1957 Witchcraft Suppression Act."

      In Your Head - Manchurian Candidate Taps Emerging Science to Depict Mind
      Control By Amanda Onion July 29, 2004 "While a chip implant to change a person's
      memory hasn't surfaced, scientists have begun influencing memory using
      pharmaceuticals. And technology that has been tried extensively on animals can trigger
      the subjects to follow commands with the flick of a switch. "These kind of
      innovations all have this feeling of being exciting, but also creepy," said
      Richard Glen Boire, founder of the Center for Cognitive Liberty and Ethics, a
      nonprofit awareness group in Davis, Calif. Enhancing and Repressing Memory - One
      study, for example, found nine healthy middle-aged pilots who took the
      Alzheimer's drug Aricept remembered flight-simulator lessons much better than nine
      others who took a placebo. Aricept has unwanted side effects, but researchers
      are working on other drugs that have been shown to promote long-term memory in
      animals. Certain drugs known as beta blockers, meanwhile, have been shown to
      suppress emotional memory. Some feel this holds promise for people with post
      traumatic stress disorder who have trouble leaving behind wrenching events of
      their past." "Records show the government has long been interested in using
      drugs to influence the brain. In fact, lawsuits are now pending in federal courts
      from people who claim they were guinea pigs in the CIA's infamous MKULTRA
      project. In this top secret research, agents gave LSD and other drugs to hundreds
      of unsuspecting Americans during the Cold War. Stopping Raging Bull - Brain
      stimulation technology has also long loomed as a means to control the actions of
      another living being. Starting in the late 1940s, scientists have zeroed in
      on key regions of the brain that, when stimulated, can produce lethargy or
      anger or irresistible sensations of pleasure." "Some of the most well-known
      studies on brain stimulation was by the Spanish scientist named Jose Delgado.
      Throughout his work in the 1950s and '60s, Delgado developed a procedure for
      implanting electrodes into areas of the brains of animals. By relaying small electric
      pulses into specific regions, he made monkeys suddenly become lethargic and
      unresponsive to food and their young. Triggering signals to other areas of
      cats' brains, he prompted the animals to attack and kill rodents placed in front
      of them. In his most famous experiment, he planted several electrodes into the
      brain of a fighting bull and sent a signal that stopped the bull dead in its
      tracks as it was rearing up to attack. When he switched the signal off, the
      bull resumed its aggressive behavior." ""Two years ago scientists used electrodes
      in rats' brains to activate their reward centers and effectively steer the
      rats to the left or right. A tiny backpack on the rats acted as the pulse
      receiver. The researchers said the so-called "rat-bots" could someday carry cameras
      and help in the search for survivors."

      of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544, USA.
      Correspondence should be addressed to Elizabeth Gould goulde@... "Maternal
      deprivation produces persistent abnormalities in behavioral and
      neuroendocrine functions associated with the hippocampus, a brain region that shows
      considerable structural change in response to experience throughout life. Here we
      show that adverse experience early in life affects the regulation of adult
      neurogenesis in the hippocampus. More specifically, a decrease in cell proliferation
      and immature neuron production are observed in the dentate gyrus of adult
      rats that are maternally separated as pups."

      Complex PTSD - A National Center for PTSD Fact Sheet By Julia M. Whealin,
      Ph.D. What are the differences between the effects of short-term trauma and the
      effects of chronic trauma? The diagnosis of PTSD accurately describes the
      symptoms that result when a person experiences a short-lived trauma. For example,
      car accidents, natural disasters, and rape are considered traumatic events of
      time-limited duration. However, chronic traumas continue for months or years at
      a time. Clinicians and researchers have found that the current PTSD diagnosis
      often does not capture the severe psychological harm that occurs with such
      prolonged, repeated trauma. For example, ordinary, healthy people who experience
      chronic trauma can experience changes in their self-concept and the way they
      adapt to stressful events. Dr. Judith Herman of Harvard University suggests
      that a new diagnosis, called Complex PTSD, is needed to describe the symptoms of
      long-term trauma. What are examples of captivity that are associated with
      chronic trauma? Judith Herman notes that during long-term traumas, the victim is
      generally held in a state of captivity. In these situations the victim is
      under the control of the perpetrator and unable to flee. Examples of captivity
      include: Concentration camps Prisoner of War camps Prostitution brothels
      Long-term domestic violence Long-term, severe physical abuse Child sexual abuse
      Organized child exploitation rings"
