Check out this eye-opening and shocking documentary film, “The Syndrome” co-created by award-winning investigative journalist Susan Goldsmith and filmmaker Meryl Goldsmith. After watching the film, you won’t look at the medical profession and the criminal justice system the same way again.

Highlights from Matt Coker at the OC Weekly who reviewed “The Syndrome” documentary when it was screened in California in April 2015: A 1998 cover package by reporter Susan Goldsmith broke the story that one of LA’s most prestigious law firms was using private in-house investigators to illegally spy on litigation opponents by obtaining their confidential health and financial records. She went on to pour years of research into shaken baby syndrome, discovering that it was a creation of junk science and many were being unjustly prosecuted for it around the country.

Her reporting is the basis of a documentary “The Syndrome” she collaborated on with her cousin, Meryl Goldsmith

While Susan Goldsmith appears as a talking head in the picture, the real stars are the doctors, defendants, scientists and legal scholars who pierce gaping holes into shaken baby syndrome allegations. Included is Audrey Edmunds, a mother of three and prisoner of 11 years for killing a baby she never harmed. 

And then there are the physicians who have turned speaking in courts, at conferences and from their own national center on shaken baby syndrome into gold–despite there being no peer-reviewed science to justify the syndrome’s existence.

Help Needed: Survivor of Hit-and-Run Accident Lost 1/3 of His Skull

Update March 12, 2012: My friend told me the Chinese media reported that Jin Bin Wang has found a Rehabilitation facilities in Brooklyn after being released from the hospital. According to Ming Pao News, the newspaper has now decided to stop receiving donation checks for Jin Bin Wang. You can contact the lawyer for Jin Bin Wang regarding donation. I’ve provided the lawyer’s address, phone # below on the “UPDATE as of Feb 15, 2012. Thanks for your support!

After the two NYC Chinese-language newspapers: Sing Tao News and Ming Pao News, published the news story in Feb 2012 about Jin Bin Wang, he has found a lawyer to help him. According to the news briefing on Feb 14, 2012, the lawyer for Mr. Wang said he just started the process. The lawyer has NOT received the police report about the hit-and-run car accident on Nov 21, 2011, only the EMS report so far. Therefore, Mr. Wang is not yet able to establish insurance claims against the hit-and-run driver. And he has a wife and children to support in China. See this LINK for the Feb 14 news briefing in Chinese as reported by Sing Tao News (get a Chinese-speaking friend to translate the news for you). 

UPDATE as of Feb 15, 2012: Jin Bin WANG – the Chinese food delivery man who miraculously survived a hit-and-run car accident has a long road to recovery after losing 1/3 of his skull (head): trouble with short-term memory, frequent headaches, etc. He needs more surgeries in the future. He has a wife and children to support in China. Nearly 3 months after the car accident, he just found a lawyer for this case. Mr. Wang has retained Vincent S. WONG attorney-at-law to represent him.

Wow! I received the photos sent from and translated by a Chinese friend. This man, Jin Bin WANG, was working for a Chinese restaurant on Murray Street in Lower Manhattan. Mr. Wang was delivering Chinese food around City Hall area in New York City on November 21, 2011 at around 5pm. He was hit by a car, the driver fled the scene of the accident. Fortunately, the NYPD found and arrested the driver later. The most incredible survival story – the man lost 1/3 of his skull but survived the injury. He is still in recovery stage and he is unable to work. He needs help.
