White Men Make Millions, African Americans Are Arrested

I spend too much time on Naturopathic and other pseudo-medicine websites. This would be a typical description of a pseudo-medical provider:

Dr. Malachi A. Love-Robinson is a a (sic) well rounded professional that treats, and cares for patients, using a system of practice that bases treatment of physiological functions and abnormal conditions on natural laws governing the human body. Dr Love-Robinson utilizes physiological, psychological, and mechanical methods, such as air, water, light, heat, earth, phototherapy, food and herb therapy, psychotherapy, electrotherapy, physiotherapy, mechanotherapy, naturopathic corrections and manipulation, and natural methods or modalities, together with natural medicines, natural processed foods, and herbs and nature's remedies.

The only phrase that is missing is helping the body to heal itself, but otherwise standard fare for a pseudo-medical website.

Except.

It is an 18 year old kid posing as a medical doctor. His "Doctor" is a PhD he acquired on the internet. Not that an internet PhD is any less of a qualification than a 4 year ND degree.

He has his responsibility deflecting patter down pat already. I was impressed and predict a successful future in the pseudo-medical field.

His career may be delayed as he was recently arrested for practicing medicine without a license in Palm Beach County, so the New Birth New Life ​Medical Center & Urgent Care, LLC may be on a hiatus. His biggest mistake was saying he was a medical clinic. If only he had said he had a "natural healing center" he would still be in practice.  

Good thing Palm Beach County is tough on pseudo-medicine and quackery. Unless you are 8.7 miles up the road at the Hippocrates Health Institute, where, to quote Jann Bellamy

In February, the State of Florida issued an order telling Brian Clement to cease and desist from the unlicensed practice of medicine. It ordered him to pay a fine as well. In March, the State said "never mind!" In an e-mail to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the Department of Health said: 

"After further review of the investigative materials, it was determined that there is insufficient evidence to pursue further legal action in this matter." 

It's hard to imagine what the Department might consider sufficient evidence, considering the sorry legacy of Mr. Clement and his visits to Canada, where he lured the families of two Canadian girls suffering from cancer to his West Palm Beach clinic, the Hippocrates Health Institute. Both families withdrew the girls from chemotherapy and conventional medical treatment in favor of traditional aboriginal medicine and the quackery offered at Hippocrates. One of the girls later died. The other, according to the CBC, remains on a Clement-prescribed raw foods diet. 

Clement's been caught fudging on his credentials as well, variously referring to himself as "Dr. Clement" and as a naturopathic doctor. And there are reports of earlier international travels during which he convinced cancer patients to come to Hippocrates for treatment. Those didn't end well either.

I hate to give what appears to be a young sociopath any ideas for a defense, but if I were 'Dr' Love-Robinson I would make it all about race. Privileged, old, rich white men down the street are doing the same thing and pulling in millions while young black men are arrested.  I say this only partly tongue in cheek.  

What will state insurance "non-discrimination" law...
