Florida zero-tolerance for human trafficking intentionally omits professionals who prey on the elderly for profit.

In tracking the rampant organized criminal activity across the country with regards to the abuse of elderly individuals [with assets] who are targeted by professional predators working within the probate system, Florida jumps to the forefront in the abuse, exploitation, and looting of personal assets of the info 2elderly. While Florida may have been at one time, the most desired state to retire to, it is now the preferred hunting grounds of professional predators who operate within and with the cooperation of the probate court system. This is human trafficking for profit.

From the Attorney General’s website:

“Contrary to some misconceptions, human trafficking crimes do not require any smuggling or movement of the victim,” says the Department of Justice on its website.

Florida’s status as a hub for human trafficking has state officials pushing a “zero-tolerance” policy toward criminals who exploit others for profit.

“It’s important to me because this is a crime against humanity, it’s truly modern-day slavery,” State Attorney General Pam Bondi said in an interview.

These should be comforting and reassuring words, and for the most part I presume that most find them so. Still, I wonder why Attorney General Bondi refuses to even acknowledge another form of human trafficking rampant not only in Florida, but across the nation. The trafficking of the elderly who committed what must be the new crime of, aging with assets. This is also a massive crime against humanity and which not one attorney general in the United States, including the US Attorney General, Eric Holder, will address.

Human trafficking professionals

Human trafficking affects human beings of all ages under numerous guises. We are all familiar with the global sex trade involving men, woman, and children, both male and female, of all ages. Florida it seems is a hot bed of human trafficking and not all of it is for sexual exploitation. In the mix of perverts, pedophiles, sadists, rapists and torturers and willing traffickers is a little known group of active predators known as professional fiduciaries, attorneys and probate judges whose stock and trade is the trafficking of the elderly w/assets] with one objective: looting the estates of the elderly while violating the civil rights of the targeted individual and regardless of the emotional or physical cost to the victim. These known predators are at work in every state targeting individuals under the guise of “protection” and then availing themselves of the victims assets.

Florida is not an isolated incident of elder abuse for profit. The GAO reports that across the nation, predatory fiduciarys steal an estimated 2.6 billion annually from aging seniors, laying claim to estates and all the financial and personal assets of the now imprisoned and isolated victim. Adult Protective Services, a national collection of state agencies, is supposedly there to protect vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect, exploitation and other threats. Instead, it is predicated upon a quota system that is directly linked to their agency expenses. Federal and state funding is formulated based on the number of victims claimed as “clients” in every quarter. And each and every quarter the quota is increased.

If the real intentions of APS was to protect vulnerable adults or the elderly, the streets are full of homeless people of all ages who need help.  These agencies step over these individuals to get to those who have assets and who can be exploited for profit”. Quote: Linda Kincaid, Elder Advocate, California)

In collusion with probate court judges, unethical law firms and attorney’s and a pack of some of the most virulent and immoral professional predatory guardians, and in some cases greedy family members, entire estates are being looted and the assets of the victim transferred to the predator. The heirs are disinherited via judicial misconduct in collusion with other actors while the victim languishes in cooperating facilities that are more than willing to ignore state statutes on elder treatment and to violate civil rights in exchange for payment.

From the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse (NASGA)

“Guardian’s Recipe for Success”
(Government and Judicially Approved Stratagem for Abuse and Exploitation of the Elderly)
by Advocate Mary Claire Connors

1.) PREDATORS – can be: government agencies, APS, (Adult Protection Services) and their contract agencies, County Area Agency on Aging, State Department of Aging, social workers, nursing facility corporations, care providers, care givers, law enforcement, attorneys, (including guardian ad litem) courts, (judges, court reporters), and their associates, such as medical doctor, psychiatrist, other professionals or greedy family members / in-laws. Litigation is the slaughter of the predator bait. The predators co-operate (collude), with each other for mutual benefit: financial gain, real estate, Federal funding stream, favors, job security, political agenda, etc. (Read full article by Mary Claire Connors HERE)

To quote Pam Bondi Florida Attorney General yet again:

“It’s important to me because this is a crime against humanity, it’s truly modern-day slavery,” State Attorney General Pam Bondi said in an interview.


Of human trafficking for profit motive

Any sensible person can view the goings on in probate courts i.e., the same judges, the same attorneys, the same agency personnel, the same professional predators working in tandem time after time to deprive an elderly individual of their life’s savings and investments, their homes, their personal belongings…actually any and all assets of any worth, and realize that this is organized crime operating right under the respective Attorney General’s nose. When the same actors appear time after time as victims are targeted, and as massive estates are constructed from the resulting theft, how could anyone not look at this and consider it a crime against humanity?

It is generally recognized in the higher courts that the outrageous character of a person’s conduct arises when he or she abuses not only the victim, but the position they hold, and abuses the victim under cover of that office. These positions of control and power affect the interest, the emotional state, quality of life, safety, security and well-being of the victim in addition to looting their assets. Using tactics that any sensible person would view as threats, high-pressure tactics, isolation, forced medication without medical need, is outrageous conduct. These professional predators along with the probate judges who know or who have:

  • refused to review evidence that would benefit the victim,
  • who use “evasion of review”  to avoid hearing evidence
  • to avoid having that evidence entered into court records
  • the elder victims rights are being violated
  • that state statutes are being violated with regards to their care
  • who refuse to allow representatives to speak,
  • who threaten jail if the representative persists,
  • who refuse to allow statements from personal physicians,
  • who refuse to allow second opinions,
  • who knowingly determine an elderly person to be incompetent with the full knowledge that they have been heavily drugged with psychotropic drugs not approved for use on the elderly, such as Risperdol, Seroquel, Zyprexa and others
  • who discard pre-standing medical directives,
  • medical surrogate appointee’s,
  • durable powers of attorney, wills, trusts, and
    pre-selected conservators or guardians,

and who are the facilitator of the biggest transfer of wealth via legalized (not lawful) theft occurring in the United States today. This is most likely the most outrageous conduct of all and an assault on the sensibilities of any moral person.

 The attorney’s line up to tap the estate

The attorneys who make their living tapping the estate with frivolous motions is also outrageous conduct. This conduct centers itself on knowing that the victim, the family and friends are keenly aware that what is happening is egregious and blatantly unlawful. They also know that the levying of false charges against family members is the fastest and surest way to get a court ruling.  Evidence of the alleged abuse almost never materializes and is simply a litany of standard and well-worn charges that in most cases are determined by outside investigators to be totally unfounded and without merit.  Still, these charges against family members and friends of the victim remain on the court records as if they were true.

Now comes the isolation of the victim. The ongoing abuse of the victim at the hands of strangers makes family and friends particularly susceptible to emotional distress as a result. The predators could care less. This is easy pickings.

The liability in these cases lies in the fact that the conduct of these professionals at all levels has been so malignant, evidenced to be so extremely vicious and detrimental, so beyond the scope of law or statute, as to go beyond any possible bounds of decency and should never be tolerated in any form in society. But all across this country it is done each and every day with the full knowledge and tacit permission of those who are in the unique position to bring the predators to trial.

Don’t retire in Florida!

In its list of human trafficking crimes, which includes trafficking with the intent to profit at the victims expense, Florida, just like every other state, carefully omits the trafficking of the elderly with assets.

Florida, having once been the ideal state for retirement, is not alone in its refusal to acknowledge these crimes against the elderly. But, since it claims to have zero tolerance for human trafficking it appears this zero tolerance only comes into play as long as no public officials, agency personnel, or well-connected predator and/or attorneys may be involved. Even with the massive number of elder abuse cases perpetrated by professional fiduciary’s reported to state officials, law enforcement and even the FBI, the Department of Justice (now there’s a misnomer) none is willing to act to protect our elderly from predatory guardians or those who use them to enrich themselves. Even state judicial review boards are apparently just dummy fronts, and the bar associations are simply closed union shops where the wagons are circled to protect the members. The law and accountability are never an issue; it’s all about providing cover for one of their members.

There are laws in every state to prohibit this kind of intentional elder abuse for profit…….and there is not one state, not even Florida that will enforce these laws. Justice is blinded in Florida and every other state……..she’s had her eyes gouged out by professional criminals hiding in plain sight in the justice system.
