History of what Mixerr Reviews is about.

Mixerr Reviews is an independent news blog from Austin, Texas, US that often strays away from mainstream news and mainstream media. Mixerr Reviews talks about news that the underground scene cares about.

Michael Mixerr started doing his own reviews in October 2011. As many media news outlets, sources, and newspapers influenced him to do so. In him doing so, Michael Mixerr matured his writing style for Mixerr Reviews into a more organized well laid out newspaper format.

At first Mixerr Reviews was sort of a mail order only newspaper though as some thought it would be. It was through email only at one point. Mixerr Reviews was only available to those who knew Michael Mixerr on a personal level and the only way you could get it was through him. Meaning that Mixerr Reviews was available in Austin, Texas, US only. But in September 2012 is when Michael Mixerr made Mixerr Reviews available to the whole world through the Internet and not just locally in Austin only.

Mixerr Reviews was originally intended to be a music news blog. But Michael Mixerr wanted Mixerr Reviews to be a indie news blog. As times changed, so did Mixerr Reviews and all the other reviews changed in formatting to along with time. He has matured overtime. The reviews are useful sources of information to many people around the world. There is no propaganda allowed on Mixerr Reviews.

Being descriptive and accurate is one of Mixerr Reviews priorities. Mixerr Reviews talks about topics no news organization would ever cover, discuss, or debate on. In other words, Mixerr Reviews is basically a news blog.

The Marijuana Times, High Times, and KiwiFarms.net report that the US Congress passed a bill to legalize hemp and President Donald Trump says he will sign the bill into law.

The 2018 Farm Bill includes a provision to legalize hemp throughout the entire country. This bill will allow farmers to grow it as any other agricultural commodities available once the bill takes effect. It will be the first time in decades that hemp will be finally legal after the bill is finalized. Hemp soon will become legalized.

The Mixerr Reviews news blog will now include pictures into news articles posted online. This move was made after more storage space became available on the Google hard drives.

Michael Mixerr states, “We now include pictures in our news articles. If the captions do not show up, hover your cursor over the picture and text will appear. This will not work on mobile platforms. Captions will not appear on mobile.”

However, there have been some issues reported that captions are not showing up under the pictures. It is apparent that Google has not yet addressed this issue. Readers have reported that captions are not showing up under the pictures when they read the news articles. Michael Mixerr explains, “Blogger and blogspot seem to have issues with html formatting and the captions to the pictures do not show up for some reason. We apologize as we cannot do anything about this issue.”

Copper sediment samples found in Texas HHSC water supply.

On the date of 10/4/2018, an employee of Texas HHSC found copper sediment in the water coming from a water fountain. The copper sediment sample was recorded and documented on the date of 10/4/2018. Later that very day is when an employee taped the copper sediment sample on top of the water fountain. This was an attempt to warn and inform Texas HHSC employees along with contractors about copper in their water supply coming from a particular water fountain.

Copper sediment sample from 10/4/2018.

Sticky notes were posted on the water fountain with the captions of “Mmm… copper” and “Can we drink this or nah”. One sticky note has a humorous remark poking fun at this situation with a caption saying “Enjoy a glass of water. Have a copper more while you’re at it”.

The Texas HHSC has had some major plumbing issues over the years it’s been open. However this is not surprising considering there was a rat infestation which caused a $60,000 vermin infestation last year in 2017 at the Texas HHSC building. Sewer rats were found in water pipes causing damage. (Ref: https://www.texastribune.org/2017/11/29/texas-health-regulators-overrun-several-hundred-rats/)

Any exact plans as to how the removal of copper in the Texas HHSC water supply have not been confirmed or made public yet.

What happened to Building 27 at Willowbrook State School?

Building 27 at Willowbrook State School was built in 1941 and completed in 1943. The building was designed to be a male infirmary and is a one-story structure constructed out of brick. This building along with Building 25 and Building 29 were designed to be for non-ambulatory patients. (https://s-media.nyc.gov/agencies/lpc/arch_reports/689.pdf)

Many of its patients were nonverbal and required continuous care. Many could not walk or speak. Building 27 housed 140 profoundly retarded (IQs under 20) adolescents of both sexes. Only a few were toilet trained which is why the building reeked of urine and feces.
(https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/GPO-CRECB-1972-pt5/pdf/GPO-CRECB-1972-pt5-1-1.pdf)
(Ref: https://www.thecrimson.com/article/1973/10/5/for-a-friend-in-the-snakepit/)

Building 27 was featured in the 1972 documentary Willowbrook : The Last Great Disgrace recorded by Geraldo Riviera for his news exposé. These patients did have clothes on. But the one thing that couldn’t be hidden is that there were no training programs. That all these patients did was sit during the day.
(Ref: http://index.geraldo.com/folio/willowbrook)

Today Building 27 is now a part of CUNY College of Staten Island. The perimeter is fenced off with a chain link fence. Building 27 is now being used for storage along with Building 25. The abandoned former Willowbrook State School buildings are owned by the College of Staten Island.

Students who attend CUNY College of Staten Island claim they hear voices coming from these building as they believe the campus is haunted. Some students and local residents have claimed to hear voices coming from Building 27 and Building 25.

Dangers of the Zika virus in Brazil rehashed.

Did you know that there is an epidemic of the Zika virus spreading around in Brazil? 1 out of every 50 children born in Brazil today are born with the Zika virus. The Zika virus is from the airborne Zika mosquito and can be sexually transmitted. The Zika virus is like the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

In 2015, the occurrence of Zika virus was 20 times higher than usual. Although less than 1% of infants in Brazil are born with microcephaly, the chances of them getting the Zika virus are much higher than average compared to other countries. United Nations (UN) had begged all tropical countries along the equator to make abortion legal for medical defects.

This whole Zika virus thing is scary. It remains unsafe to conceive babies for a few months after you recover from the Zika virus. Signs of contracting Zika virus are vomiting and frequent seizures. The other signs include small heads and small brains. One way to get rid of the Zika virus is to kill the kill Zika mosquitoes or insects carrying the virus in order to prevent the Zika virus. Another way is by teaching dangers of Zika virus through sexual education. Brazil is attempting to kill Zika mosquitoes in order to prevent the Zika virus from happening.

Why Pennhurst State School really closed down.

This news article will explain why Pennhurst State School near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania really closed down. It did not close down due to popular belief of slavery or it being haunted.

Pennhurst State School did not only close due to popular belief of its inhumane conditions and unlawful abusive treatment towards patients. Pennsylvania Department of Mental Hygiene and the administration of Pennhurst State School were attempting to teach the mentally challenged real life skills so that they would function correctly on their own. Job skills were taught to these patients.

Pennhurst State School was shut down because the patients were used as laborers in the farm fields. Pennhurst State School used patients as unpaid laborers in their farming operations when the institution was still in operation. This led to the Pennhurst State School v. Halderman lawsuit and new Fair Labor Standards Act laws requiring patients be paid. Pennsyvlania Department of Mental Hygiene could not afford to pay its patients from their budget. So after the 1970s, farming operations ceased.

Patients were recruited to compensate for their staff shortages and inadequacies from lack of finances in the budget. So there was no job protection or no worker rights. Or any remuneration for that matter. People were used for a variety of functions in order to save the institution money. This was the state’s attempt to engage patients in constructive work and in constructive activities. Patients did pretty much slave labor.That was the sad reality.

The administration of Pennhurst State School was attempting to teach the mentally challenged things our stupid kids and many people can't do for themselves anymore.

Pennhurst State School was a concentration camp. Many activists have criticized the state failed to provide “appropriate treatment” in the “least restrictive” environment.

Members of Rise and Resist NY working to secure best legal representation for Therese Patricia Okoumou.

The members of Rise and Resist NY are going to continue on working to secure the best legal representation for Therese Patricia Okoumou. These are the plans as to what Rise and Resist NY are making for Patricia.

On the date of July 4, 2018, NYPD apprehended an African woman named Therese Patricia Okoumou after taking up a temporary residence on Lady Liberty's right foot on the Statue of Liberty to protest ICE and US immigration policies. NYPD took Therese Patricia Okoumou downtown into federal custody at 5:00 PM that day. Therese Patricia Okoumou had been in federal custody for 1 day and was released on July 5, 2018.

Since then she has been released on bail but is still under the eyes of federal police. Legal officials are still monitoring her court case as charges are still pending. NYPD is keeping a close watch on her as well.

Jay W. Walker, an organizer, told The Los Angeles Blade that “Patricia is a powerful, committed, and passionate activist. She has become an integral member of Rise and Resist over the course of the last several months.


On July 5, 2018, Rise and Resist (@riseandresistny) released a statement on twitter and in public at the United States District Court Southern District of New York stating the following.:

[The members of Rise and Resist have listened to the criticism of the statement we released earlier Wednesday evening. On reflection, we realize that in our haste to complete the statement so that we could continue working to secure the best legal representation for Therese Patricia Okoumou (Patricia).

We unintentionally led people to believe that we were distancing the group from Patricia. Nothing could be further from the truth. Patricia is our friend, our comrade, our sister. From the moment that we realized that this amazing woman whom we have gotten to know, love, and respect was the person who had climbed to the foot of Lady Liberty, we had three concerns: one for her safety from falling, second, for her safety as a woman of color who was about to be engaged by law enforcement, and third, to find her the best legal representation that that we could. We will have an additional statement later with updates.

Rise and Resist will be doing jail support for Patricia, and is arranging great legal representation for her. We will let everyone know how they can further support her as soon as we find out more info.

We’ve received several requests to help Patricia, a member of Rise and Resist who climbed the Statue of Liberty today. Once we find out her legal needs, we’ll post any efforts to help her on our Twitter feed. It’s reported that she’s been charged with federal misdemeanors.

Old Montopolis School now facing demolition.

Unable to agree to a purchase price for the site of the former Montopolis Negro School, Austin will move forward with plans to take it through eminent domain proceedings even after months of negotiation as of July 2018. Austin City Council approved a measure to pursue eminent domain proceedings after being unable to agree on a purchase price as reported by Austin Monitor, Houston Chronicle, and the Austin Statesman.

Planning commissioners voted to deny a rezoning application for the former Montopolis Negro School property. Austin City Council is going to be seizing the site of the old Montopolis Negro School.

Property owner Austin Stowell has applied for the property to be rezoned from single family to community commercial with historic zoning granted for the school structure. Austin Stowell has already expressed dissatisfaction with the city's handling of the situation. The city has proposed paying $362,000 for the 0.85-acre tract of land.

The case has drawn controversy throughout the city of Austin, especially towards property owner Austin Stowell and historian Fred McGhee. This was also in large part thanks to the strong opposition of community members. Austin Stowell is aware of the historical significance of the school itself. However the historical significance of this property will not cease any demolition.

Outline about the African woman who climbed the Statue of Liberty in New York.

This news article will explain the detailed outline about why African woman Therese Patricia Okoumou climbed the Statue of Liberty in New York. This news article will explain what exact events had happened from July 4, 2018 to July 6, 2018.


On Wednesday, July, 4, 2018, African woman Therese Patricia Okoumou climbed the Statue of Liberty in New York City, New York, US to protest ICE. According to investigators, she was protesting Trump’s zero-tolerance policy on immigration, protesting ICE, immigration laws of the United States, and separating families at the Mexico-US border.

While taking up a temporary residence on Lady Liberty's right foot, she unfurled an ‘Abolish ICE’ banner at the base of the statue on Wednesday. Therese Patricia Okoumou vowed to stay until every illegal immigrant kid was released from ICE custody.

New York Daily News reported she was part of a “’Rise and Resist” protest on Independence Day. She had been taking part in the protest for about one week now with the Rise and Resist group. She was mainly protesting immigration laws and policies of the United States. Some activists and citizens claim she probably did that for attention. Some people state or claim that there was a good chance she was already receiving welfare from the government. However that is not the case here. She had been a part of Rise and Resist NY for four months.


What did this woman accomplish?
Police from NYPD ended up climbing the statue and risking their lives to save her from injury and her own ignorance. Police removed this woman to prevent herself from being injured and to prevent others from being injured as well. Therese Patricia Okoumou was arrested after climbing to the base of the Statue of Liberty after taking up a temporary residence on Lady Liberty's right foot.

Therese Patricia Okoumou was taken downtown into federal custody at 5:00 PM on July 4, 2018 by NYPD. She was under federal custody for 1 day and not 2 days as people would have you believe. Therese Patricia Okoumou was released from federal custody on July 5, 2018.

Since then she has been released on bail but is still under the eyes of federal police. Legal officials are still monitoring her court case as charges are still pending. NYPD is keeping a close watch on her as well.

The members of Rise and Resist NY are going to continue on working to secure the best legal representation for Therese Patricia Okoumou. These are the plans as to what Rise and Resist NY are making for Patricia.

A public speech by Rise and Resist NY was held at Pearl Street at 2:00 PM on July 6, 2018. Over 500 people were in attendance. Eventually the number of people in attendance rose to 600 people in a 5 mile radius.

Jay W. Walker, an organizer, told The Los Angeles Blade and New York Post that “Patricia is a powerful, committed, and passionate activist. She has become an integral member of Rise and Resist over the course of the last several months.

National Park Service spokesman Jerry Willis told New York Post the following later that day the statements below.:

National Park Service spokesman Jerry Willis said, “People are moved when they get here. So to have their visit cut short or denied is extremely unfortunate. I’m really sad for people who had to leave the island or who weren’t able to get over here at all.”

“You don’t need to tower like Lady Liberty to be able to see that there’s a security lapse at the National Park Service. But somebody with some climbing skills would be able to pull it off. An extremely dangerous stunt to pull. The NPS is assessing the possibility of a security breach.”

Federal government sources said that at the end of the day. The exact park officials are to blame due to the apparent lack of security and awareness.

Rodessa High School history of Rodessa, Lousiana forgotten update!

Rodessa High School history of Rodessa, Lousiana forgotten update!

Rodessa High School was one of Louisiana’s many forgotten schools. In fact, Rodessa High School is one of Lousiana’s forgotten schools. Only so much is known about this high school. Many people have claimed the school to be “haunted”.


Rodessa High School was designed by Louisiana architect Seymour Van Os in 1937 as a two story brick building on a steel and concrete foundation and was built with acquired oil money and donations. The school building is about 33,437 square feet on 5 acres of land. Rodessa High School was built at a cost of $195,000. The two story building had 20 classrooms. The Rodessa High School building was a Public Works Administration building built in the 1930s as part of Lousiana’s New Deal heritage.

Classrooms for the 250 students were held in temporary buildings as the structure could not hold all of the students enrolled at this school at the time. 250 out of the 800 students attended classes in the temporary buildings until 1939.

Rodessa High School finally opened in September 1939. Enrollment in the beginning was 800 students. The first high school principal was Gladys Pitts Hendrick, a Rodessa native. Grades 1 through 11 were taught here. Rodessa High School (Rodessa School) was operated by Caddo Parish School District from 1939 to 1973 in Rodessa, Lousiana.

The first high school principal was Gladys Pitts Hendrick, a Rodessa native. Miss Gladys Hendrick was one of the first teachers at the school. (Ref: Shreveport Times, Page 7A, October 19, 1947)

In 1939, a tornado wiped out most of the town, but this school building somehow survived miraculously. Many people were killed in the tornado of 1939. Those killed in the 1939 tornado were buried in Tyson Cemetery, west of Rodessa High School.

A cemetery is located next to Rodessa High School and is called Tyson Cemetery. Tyson Cemetery was established sometime in the early 19th century. Several early 19th century interments can be found at this cemetery. This cemetery is still active. Modern headstones and fresh graves can be found.


Rodessa High School closed as a high school in 1955 when a new high school was built in nearby Vivian. The new North Caddo High School consolidated all of the high schools in the North Caddo Parish. The last senior class to graduate Rodessa High School was in 1955.

In 1956, Rodessa High School was renamed to Rodessa Elementary School (better known as Rodessa School) and remained that way until its closure. Rodessa School became a K-8 school for Caddo Parish School District. Once Rodessa High School closed, high school students had to start attending school in nearby Vivian, Louisiana to complete their education.

Rodessa High School was an all white school prior to 1965. The school desegregated in 1965 during the 1965-1966 school year.

After a high amount of asbestos was found in heater vent pipes by maintenance workers for the Caddo Parish School District, Rodessa High School was shut down effectively in 1973. Asbestos contributed to low test scores and appearent mesothelioma.Rodessa High School had also closed down due to a lack of funding, dwindling enrollment, and desegregation.

The gym had burned in a fire once after the school closed. So many people killed that they had to use the school as the morgue and also had to line the deceased up out front of the school as well as the back of the school. Many people have claimed Rodessa High School to be a “haunted school”. (Ref: HauntLA)

Someone at some point had set up a meth lab inside the former Rodessa High School. Exactly when is currently unknown. Over the years, the school was vandalized and stripped by scrappers. (Ref: uer.ca)


In 1996, there was a bit of debating about what to do with the former Rodessa High School property. However another discovery of asbestos was found. The heater vent pipes were made almost entirely of asbestos! So demolition would bankrupted the school district at the time. Nothing happened as a result. However the school district has evaluated the land and determined if there is a need for the land several times over the years.

In 2008, a group of ghost hunters were arrested for trespassing on the former Rodessa High School campus by the female sheriff deputy officer for the city of Rodessa. Several others have been given warnings by the female sheriff deputy officer to stay away from the property as it is unsafe.  Several others have trespassed on the property including paranormal experts, ghost hunters, and urban explorers curious about what was left behind.


In 2016, a handful of newspapers reported about the Caddo Parish School District considering having Rodessa High School demolished.

In August 9, 2016, Caddo Parish School Board considered demolishing the old Rodessa High School as a recommendation from district staff. Shreveport Times reports the building is too far gone to renovate and it is currently not economically viable for remodeling. Caddo Parish School District Superintendent Lamar Goree says officials, school board members, and administrators have concerns and fear the building is too dangerous to remain in the community because of its structural condition. Not because it’s a huge building.

(Ref: Washington Times, Superintendent: Caddo school almost looks haunted, Wednesday, August 10, 2016)
(Ref: Associated Press, Wednesday, August 10, 2016)
(Ref: Shreveport Times)
(Ref: uer.ca)

The property was fenced with a standard 6 foot chainlink fence and was overgrown with vegetation brush. Its interior had been vandalized severely. Most of windows were broken. The roof had deteriorated. The Rodessa High School building itself was contaminated with asbestos.

On April 8, 2018, the Rodessa High School building was demolished. All that remained was the concrete slab foundation which was later demolished. Caddo Parish School District still owns the property.


Rodessa High School is located at 9634 Rodessa Ida Road, Rodessa, Louisiana, US 71069.

Classrooms for the 250 students were held in temporary buildings as the structure could not hold all of the students enrolled at this school at the time. 250 out of the 800 students attended classes in the temporary buildings until 1939.

Rodessa High School finally opened in September 1939. Enrollment in the beginning was 800 students. The first high school principal was Gladys Pitts Hendrick, a Rodessa native. Grades 1 through 11 were taught here. Rodessa High School (Rodessa School) was operated by Caddo Parish School District from 1939 to 1973 in Rodessa, Lousiana.

In 1939, a tornado wiped out most of the town, but this school building somehow survived miraculously. Many people were killed in the tornado of 1939. Those killed in the 1939 tornado were buried in Tyson Cemetery, west of Rodessa High School.

A cemetery is located next to Rodessa High School and is called Tyson Cemetery. Tyson Cemetery was established sometime in the early 19th century. Several early 19th century interments can be found at this cemetery. This cemetery is still active. Modern headstones and fresh graves can be found.


Rodessa High School closed as a high school in 1955 when a new high school was built in nearby Vivian. The new North Caddo High School consolidated all of the high schools in the North Caddo Parish. The last senior class to graduate Rodessa High School was in 1955.

In 1956, Rodessa High School was renamed to Rodessa Elementary School (better known as Rodessa School) and remained that way until its closure. Rodessa School became a K-8 school for Caddo Parish School District. Once Rodessa High School closed, high school students had to start attending school in nearby Vivian, Louisiana to complete their education.

Rodessa High School was an all white school prior to 1965. The school desegregated in 1965 during the 1965-1966 school year.

After a high amount of asbestos was found in heater vent pipes by maintenance workers for the Caddo Parish School District, Rodessa High School was shut down effectively in 1973. Asbestos contributed to low test scores and appearent mesothelioma.Rodessa High School had also closed down due to a lack of funding, dwindling enrollment, and desegregation.

The gym had burned in a fire once after the school closed. So many people killed that they had to use the school as the morgue and also had to line the deceased up out front of the school as well as the back of the school. Many people have claimed Rodessa High School to be a “haunted school”. (Ref: HauntLA)

Someone at some point had set up a meth lab inside the former Rodessa High School. Exactly when is currently unknown. Over the years, the school was vandalized and stripped by scrappers. (Ref: uer.ca)


In 1996, there was a bit of debating about what to do with the former Rodessa High School property. However another discovery of asbestos was found. The heater vent pipes were made almost entirely of asbestos! So demolition would bankrupted the school district at the time. Nothing happened as a result. However the school district has evaluated the land and determined if there is a need for the land several times over the years.

In 2008, a group of ghost hunters were arrested for trespassing on the former Rodessa High School campus by the female sheriff deputy officer for the city of Rodessa. Several others have been given warnings by the female sheriff deputy officer to stay away from the property as it is unsafe.  Several others have trespassed on the property including paranormal experts, ghost hunters, and urban explorers curious about what was left behind.


In 2016, a handful of newspapers reported about the Caddo Parish School District considering having Rodessa High School demolished.

In August 9, 2016, Caddo Parish School Board considered demolishing the old Rodessa High School as a recommendation from district staff. Shreveport Times reports the building is too far gone to renovate and it is currently not economically viable for remodeling. Caddo Parish School District Superintendent Lamar Goree says officials, school board members, and administrators have concerns and fear the building is too dangerous to remain in the community because of its structural condition. Not because it’s a huge building.

Today the property is fenced with a standard 6 foot chainlink fence and is overgrown with vegetation brush. Its interior has been vandalized severely. Most of windows are broken. The roof has deteriorated. The Rodessa High School building itself is contaminated with asbestos. Caddo Parish School District still owns the property. It is considered trespassing to enter the property and the building is unsafe.

Here is what you need to know if you plan on visiting. There is a house next door and directly across the street and the occupants are going to be watching your every move. They will send pitbulls to chase after you.

Some people state or claim that there was a good chance she was already receiving welfare from the government. However that is not the case here. She had been a part of Rise and Resist NY for four months.

What did this woman accomplish?
Police ended up climbing the statue and risking their lives to save her from injury and her own ignorance.

Most school shootings occurred on school grounds involve at least one person being shot.

It is not uncommon for 2 university shootings to occur during the same month.

And let’s not forget the Alabama University shootings of March 7, 2018.

History of abuse at Sunmount Developmental Center overlooked.

There have been cases of abuse reported at Sunmount Developmental Center in Tupper Lake, New York that have gone unsolved over the years. Abuse is a contentious issue. In many cases, cases of abuse go unsolved. Sunmount Developmental Center is no exception. It was not all good with parents of the residents that resided in this institution.

Sunmount Developmental Center suffers from a high amount of injury from staff onto residents. Staff often assaults the residents that live here. There is also a high injury rate amongst residents. Many residents aren’t adequately fed. The mentally and physically disabled go through enough on their own.

In the 1970s, a handful of cases regarding abuse appeared in newspapers such as Rochester Times, The Tribune, Buffalo Times, and Watertown Daily Times (Watertown Daily). Parents raised concern about questionable treatment practices on residents.


During an interview with Watertown Daily Times in June 1973, former resident John Boyer recalled the only  marked abuse he saw was when he lining up with his ward mates to get their teeth brushed. “When they'd line us up to brush our teeth. If anybody was talking, the attendant would come down the line slapping us all in the face." 

The routine punishments consisted of "walking the halls" by having the residents walk in a long continual line about the wards until they were quiet. Attendants would get the noisy residents "walking the halls" by having the residents walk in a long line around the wards until they were quiet. This way attendants could assure residents kept quiet.

John Boyer witnessed residents being straight-jacketed to air heaters along ward walls. Slaps to the face occurred on a monthly basis. Dental care was poor and skin infections were rampant.

In another case of abuse, the parents of Pat Burns noticed the body of their own son had questionable scars and bruises when visiting him at Sunmount State School. They began noticing scars on Pat’s neck. No official answers were ever give as to how Pat obtained scars on his neck. How the bruises got there are questionable.  "They told us Pat was not a 'fighter' and other boys picked on him." Mrs. Burns said.

The Burnses photographed their son's neck and complained to the school authorities. After his parents complained, Pat was put into isolation as administration at the school decided this was a solution. He remained in an isolation ward for an extended period of time.

Pat's parents also noticed their son had developed a fear of older men, which led Mrs. Burns to suspect he may have been abused by school attendants. They also noticed he had a fear of stairs. Now 65 years old, Pat Burns is still afraid of stairs and unable to walk down them.

According to Adkins family and from an internal report provided to The Times by the family,
Sunmount Developmental Center resident Eddie Adkins was set upon by several staff members after he grew upset that he was not allowed to go to the bathroom. A melee soon ensued by four state four state employees punching Eddie Adkins while he was sitting on a couch.

A deaf resident nearby told state investigators that he saw four state employees punching Eddie Adkins while he was sitting on a couch. He was so disturbed that he turned his hearing aid off during the melee. The assault took place in October 2011 when the staffers took down a male resident in the dining hall.

Two former employees of the Sunmount Developmental Center were sentenced to jail stemming from an October 2013 cover-up on the date of December 6, 2016. Jessica Rice and Suzanne Decheine assaulted an 18-year-old resident and gave him a head injury, which resulted into a seizure and a concussion. Both Jessica Rice and Suzanne Decheine covered this up from their superiors.
