Tell the FDA to Return Dr. Carpenter's Lasers and Other Seized Property Immediately!

This is a continuation of the original petition, which was to stop a writ of execution against Dr. Carpenter.
On July 11, 2012, Dr. Carpenter's Lase Med Inc. clinic was raided by eight uniformed officers for the FDA, who claimed to be acting on complaints instigated by three people. The wording in these "complaints" were vertabim copies of wording used over a three year period by three bloggers we now know as disinformants, the most prolific of whom was a Georgia woman recruited by an Arkansas attorney in 2010, to publicize a lawsuit filed against Carpenter, and to seek out and persuade former Carpenter patients to make complaints about her. This person's slanderous and misleading articles about Dr. Carpenter have been on the web for over three years, and mainstream news articles about Carpenter have featured excerpts from her once-viral anti-Carpenter videos, including verbatim phrases found also in the news stories and the FDA warrant, such as complaints that she was "selling false hope" and "preying on the desperate." This same disinformant has spent years stalking former Carpenter patients via web forums, email, and telephone, trying to convince them they were harmed by Carpenter. This same person has also stalked Dr. Carpenter's staff, both online and by seeking out home addresses and phone numbers of neighbors, in order to create neighborhood disturbances and destruction of private property. We have sufficient reason to believe, based on hundreds of pages of internet postings by this woman encouraging people to "file complaints," that the other complaints which were made to FDA are also the result of this same woman's "networking" efforts. Even though FDA staged the raid based on three complaints, they never spoke with any of Dr. Carpenter's successful patients (some of whose comments appear below) before coming to take everything.
The above-mentioned agitator, one Michelle Wolven, is connected to a former Carpenter patient, whose exaggerated story was told by her widowed husband as a key witness in the aforementioned Federal Case against Carpenter (case is discussed in original petition text below). The exaggerations of the widowed husband, and those of the public disinformant (stalker), focused on key elements of the patient's history that were purposely omitted in order to demonize Dr. Carpenter, most importantly, a second form of cancer the patient had which was never treated by Carpenter and never mentioned in the media. As mentioned before, none of Dr. Carpenter's defense witnesses were allowed to be heard by the jury, a jury picked by only one side of the case. The same disinformant (now using the screen name "shutdownlasemedinc" in numerous places on the web) has a long history of being a "spectacle demonstrator," going back to the 1990's, and is on public record as having filed many false complaints against law abiding citizens and dragging them into court, in the course of her extreme aggression to impose her will on others, only to admit in court that the accusations were lies.
The allegations being “investigated” by FDA include “reason to believe” that Dr. Carpenter was manufacturing and selling a DRUG, that this DRUG was being somehow adulterated and / or mislabeled, and that she was in possession of “adulterated medical devices” which she was allegedly selling, none of which were the case, and allegations of wire fraud that she was marketing a fraudulent cancer therapy, with no evidence whatsoever to prove that the therapy was fraudulent.
The mixture that the FDA are classifying as a DRUG is actually a combination of two FDA-approved liquids which have been available for decades: saline solution and FOOD COLORING. The cited MANUFACTURE OF DRUGS is actually the mixing of the two together. A DRUG is defined as a non-food product that produces a physiological change. The only change that this mixture by itself produces is A COLOR CHANGE. The color change enhances the heat absorption of the laser light and allows the stained area to reach higher temperature than the surrounding healthy tissue, which does not retain the stain.
THIS IS NOT A DRUG.
The devices which were taken consist of an array of LOW POWER LASERS, bundled to produce a WIDER BEAM, NOT A STRONGER ONE, which by themselves do nothing but produce a mild warmth, and only when used in combination with the stain can bring the treated area to the temperature sufficient to kill the cancer cells. This approach to treating cancer, a DRUG-FREE version of PHOTO DYNAMIC THERAPY, has been copied by many university research hospitals with positive results since Carpenter's methodology was patented in 2000. The "copycat" researchers however are using potentially toxic nanotech compounds instead of color stain.
The raid was set up by entrapment, via a ruse spanning several months, for a fictitious "new patient" who never existed. The "appointment" was rescheduled several times following the initial consultation with a person claiming to be the patient's "nephew." At the scheduled time of the confirmed "appointment," the FDA officers entered the office and began taking things: Dr. Carpenter's LASER devices, her photoenhancer solution used in the treatment process, data extraction on all the computers, patient records, employee records, and the entire contents of the safe in the office (for which her office manager was ordered to hand over the combination.)
Now Dr. Carpenter cannot perform her treatments, patient appointments must be cancelled and some may die as a result, as this was their last hope. Dr. Carpenter's rent and expense money was in the safe and now that is gone as well.
Dr. Carpenter has been rendered bereft and unable to make a living now, all because she offers an effective treatment for certain types of cancer which does not involve deadly poisons and cancer-causing radiation, and because the FDA must protect the bottom line of the pharmaceutical interests that control them.
This is an absolute outrage and should not be tolerated by the American public.
Dr. Carpenter's property must be returned.
United States District Court, Northern District of Oklahoma:
Stop the writ of execution for Case No. 11-MC-30-GKF against Dr. Carpenter
The judgment was issued during an illegal trial, which violated the 14th amendment and the Code of Civil Procedure, in a Court without jurisdiction over the defendants. The trial was carried out in absence of the defendants, instead of going into default judgment. Defense had presented 12 witnesses, all former patients; all but four of them were disqualified for ridiculous reasons having to do with their states of residence; these four remaining witnesses were finally presented, one of them a medical doctor who had been treated for breast cancer. The four were sworn in and depositions were taken. All defense witness testimony was officially excluded from the trial, on grounds that the testimony could "prejudice a jury."
The award to the plaintiff was absurd (400 times her expenses for treatment), instead of being limited to the default amount, by a jury selected only by the plaintiff's attorney, under a non neutral judge. The plaintiff in this case had sued Dr. Carpenter over a cancer treatment she claimed did not work, although according to suppressed evidence, it actually had saved her life.
It is important for every citizen of this Country to have this case blocked and the truth brought to public attention, because it would otherwise set a precedent that our Constitution can be violated at will and no one is really protected under the law, as if this Country were a dictatorship.
This case was motivated by malice and intended to ruin the main defendant, so she would be rendered incapable of supporting herself, of working, and continuing to help patients who wish to receive her treatment.
