treatment program under which “the hardened shell of the
psychopath may give way to a unique and maturing sharing of
kindness and concern”. The main finding of the authors was that
Oak Ridge was an exciting program and, “here, the impossible is
apparently happening — psychopaths are being treated with
success”. The authors criticized the “perversity that this Hospital, which should be the flag carrier for the Ministry of Health,
has recently had its funds cut to below the acceptable level . . .”.
 The authors of the ombudsman’s report saw a remorseless
re-educative experience of discipline as a way to make psychopaths kind and caring. They drew a distinction between mental
torment and physical torture. They apparently agreed with
the views of Dr. Barker that force, humiliation, deprivation
and offences more sinister and grievous than those involved
in setting up the Third Reich would help the patients to resolve
the internal conflicts that had driven them to deviate from society’s norms.
 Notwithstanding these views, I find as a fact that applied
humanely or not, to experimentally administer drugs to patients
in the manner of the DDT program or to punish them in the
manner of the MAPP program or to strip them, drug them, chain
them nude one to another, feed them only liquids through a
straw through a wall, deprive them of sleep and confine them for
extended periods of time in a crowded continually lit room with
no privacy and with a humiliating location for their personal
hygiene and health for the purpose of changing their personality
and behaviour in the manner of the Capsule program is to
grossly violate their human dignity and human rights and to
torture them both mentally and physically.
 And, I find as a fact that for a physician to implement the
DDT program, the MAPP program and the Capsule program is
to breach a fiduciary duty and to obliterate the 2,500-year-old
Hippocratic Oath, which is an ethical obligation: to abstain from
abusing the bodies of man or woman, bond or free; to never
administer or suggest the administration of a poison; to keep
pure and holy the art of healing; and to use treatment to help
the sick but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing.
3. The plaintiffs’ experiences at Oak Ridge
 Reginald Barker (born 1946), who has an extensive psychiatric history and criminal record, was transferred to Oak
Ridge pursuant to a Lieutenant Governor’s warrant having
being found not guilty by reason of insanity on a charge of murder. He spent ten years at Oak Ridge between 1968 and 1978.
He was prescribed the DDT program.
