Sometime in the year 2009, a man contacted me via the internet identifying himself as a former police officer who was recently released from prison. His name is Joe Norris. When I asked him what he wanted with me, he explained “Dr. Joseph Giacchino destroyed my life.”
While it seems highly unlikely that any readers at ANP would not be familiar with the criminal escapades of one Dr. Joseph L. Giacchino, perhaps I should take a moment to explain that he is a formerly-practicing surgeon that ran a pain clinic in Melrose Park, Illinois, for several years before having his medical license suspended for the second time in 2010. My long and and emotionally-draining entanglement with this Pusher M.D. has been well documented on this site, so I will not bother to give you the specifics of my problems with this man.
I was certainly not the first, or last, victim of Giacchino’s greed or hubris. In the case of Joe Norris, it was Giacchino’s grave and unforgivable dereliction of duty that caused him massive personal injury.
Norris was able to access a great deal of helpful information on Giacchino through American News Post’s former publication, KTF Media Group. Norris quickly and accurately concluded that I could be a possible ally because of my articles that described how badly Giacchino temporarily compromised my life. I was very upset to hear this news about Norris’ suffering. Therefore, I agreed to meet with him to discuss a plan to bring Giacchino to justice. We met, had dinner and began getting to know each other.
