"Committed" is what happened to me when I refused to resign as South Texas Sales Manager for the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company, my employer of over twenty-six years. Two Sheriff's Deputies knocked at the door of my office interrupting a conversation I was having with three friends and away I went to the San Antonio State Mental Hospital. That was December 10, 1981. 11 days later, Judge Ball released me because I refused all drug medication. I was incensed by the capstone Age procedures which allow people to be incarcerated in Texas mental institutions without any prior physical or mental evaluation. To focus attention on these deficiencies, I filed for Gov. against incumbent Bill Clements in the Republican Primary. Within days, I was rearrested and recommitted to the State Mental Hospital. I demanded a jury trial and Court-appointed attorney. My trial began February 21, 1982, and lasted a week. The jury brought in a 6-0 Same verdict in less than an hour. Free again! Well, not quite! Over the next five years, I was arrested and jailed on forty-seven separate occasions. Twice my ribs were broken. Once by police and once by jail inmates. The driving force behind this personal nightmare has been the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company and their San Antonio retained law firm of Cox, Smith, Inc. This was borne out again and again in depositions and trial testimony From start to finish, is a true account of my response to a situation that sometimes seemed overwhelming. --- from book's dustjacket
