Medical records show my lawyer-brother David Shuler called Burrell Behavioral Health to make false claim that I had threatened to shoot cops if they tried to evict

David Shuler
One week before our unlawful eviction in September 2015, my lawyer-brother David Shuler sent an email accusing me of calling 911 to issue a threat that I would shoot any law-enforcement officers who attempted to evict Carol and me. We since have learned David -- surprise, surprise -- was lying, that the call came from Burrell Behavioral Health, our health-care provider.

Newly obtained evidence shows that David's deceit goes much deeper than we originally understood. He launched the bogus story about a threat to shoot law-enforcement -- a threat that I never made, on a subject I never discussed with him.

David's role in concocting the 911 ruse, which almost got Carol and me killed and led directly to her broken arm, comes from two pieces of evidence -- my medical records and the 911 call itself.

Let's first consider my medical records. Here is an entry dated 8/5/15, from psychiatric nurse Matt Charles, who was my caregiver at the time for Burrell:

Update 8/5/15 -- Allegedly, patient's brother has contacted the case-management supervisor regarding Roger. Roger's brother states that Roger has threatened to shoot anyone who tries to evict him. After discussing this with the CSS and case-management supervisor, a plan was made to hotline these concerns regarding Roger.

What does it mean to "hotline" these concerns? We're not sure, but we believe a message was sent to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

What do we learn from this note in my medical file? There is no evidence that I threatened to shoot anyone, cop or otherwise -- and I did not, in fact, make such a threat. Also, I've never discussed anything of substance with David since I've been back in Missouri; it became clear early on that he was not to be trusted, so I've shared almost nothing with him.

In short, attorney David Shuler made up the threat and my role in the 911 call -- pulling both from some deep, dark crevice with which many lawyers seem equipped.

As for evidence of David's deceit in the 911 call itself, we will address that in an upcoming post.

I'm pretty sure your brother violated privacy laws.

Why did the health-care provider talk to your brother? Did they have authorization to speak to him?

We had specifically withdrawn authorization for them to speak to David or any other family member. But they talked to him anyway, and we have evidence of that.

Why would he word it this way?

Was he "unofficially" told something?

If he wanted to continue some sort of an "allegedly" facade in the narrative wouldn't he need an "allegedly" a few more places?

I'd say Burrell is going to have some tough questions to answer about this. Hard to imagine why they would tromp on a patient's privacy rights this way.

Your brother obviously isn't a health-care lawyer, or he would know better than to make a call like that.

Good point about the strange use of the word allegedly. Burrell should have records that David did call or he didn't. I have evidence that suggests he did call and will be reporting on that shortly.

Perhaps I've missed this piece of information, but when was the 911 call made? I assume the cops had plenty of time to investigate if they were so inclined.

It was on 8/12/15, almost exactly one month before our eviction, on 9/9/15.

They had almost a month to investigate, and I never heard a word from them. But they showed up at our house on 9/9/15 in SWAT gear, with assault weapons, the works.

My take is that they didn't want to investigate because they knew I had not placed the call or made the threat. They just wanted an excuse to terrorize us.

Your brother is real prince . . . I mean, prick.

Aboard the Eliza Battle the crew was assembling for a round table discussion. Meanwhile on River Street in Savannah Ga. the Marines were searching for some cold beer and hot women. The Maitre d' of the Boar's Head Bar and Grill informed the Marines that they must check their weapons. Before Jimmy could remove his revolver, Coach shouted,"Freeze!"; But he was too late and the General's pants had been dropped to his ankles. A Patron at the bar shouted, Someone give Theodor a vowel." The General, spotting the Petite Blonde Patron in her red short shorts, took short choppy steps to the Bar. The General sat on a bar stool and said, OOOOOOW! that stool is cold...... Hello Beautiful! I'm The General." Back on the Eliza Battle Ms Chapelle asked the Captain how the phrase, " You're Done!" led him to believe that Mr Blue Shirt was the Brother of one of Roger's subjects. The Captain replied that it was unprofessional comment for a FBI agent to make, but if the subject of the material they were searching for was a a family member; the outburst would seem logical. Ms Chapelle asked," But how did you know it was a brother?" The Captain replied," Because one of Roger's readers left a clue in 2017 when he recycled one of the Captain's 2016 comments." Ms Chapelle whispered, "Who is he ?"The Captain replied that the clue that Roger gave about Mr Blue-Shirt's athletic build, implies that he trained at a gym and that the subject of the material ,that the raid was searching for, was spotted at a Military Gym with some of his family members. The Captain whispered," I embedded his name in a previous Eliza Battle Tale."

If I didn't know better, I'd think your brother has been trying to get you and Carol killed for quite some time.

As I recall, your brother has a special-needs child, and the expenses from that can cause people to do strange things, especially if someone dangles enough money in front of them. Your brother sounds deeply warped and troubled to me.

If someone discovers the name of "Blue Shirt" embedded in an Eliza Battle tale, please let us know. Not sure I have the research ability to go back and find that. And I can never tell the difference in these stories between the names of real people and the names of characters from yesteryear.

I think when he says allegedly, he is just trying to say "Someone on the phone who claimed to be River's brother, but I don't know who it was." And while they were prohibited from discussing Roger's case with anyone, they would still have to listen to someone calling in. All they can say is I can not confirm or deny that Roger is a patient here, then the caller could say anything they wanted and there is no violation of privacy that occurred.

And you can cite Missouri or federal law to support your opinion?

well as we say in some families, the fewer children the greater the split. guess your brother David thought the same thing, in my opinion of course.

My view on your brother David's conduct has more to do with holding onto what he views as his "share" of your mother's estate. He does not view you as some one he wants to "split" the winnings with.

Nothing tells you more about a person than when it comes to splitting the family estate, and yes, the kiniving starts way before the parental unit exits stage left. Your brother doesn't appear to be a nice person.
Be careful. He isn't finished yet, in my experience.

Roger, I hope you and Carol are getting the mental health support you both need right now. I know how hard it is when both partners are suffering. I've been following your blog since 2015 and I've seen you situation deteriorate over time. I have nothing but sympathy for what you are going through. Paranoia and rage can be a destructive combination.
