At issue is Massachusetts bill S 1177….a bill intended to legalize the trafficking of elderly and others who have estates and assets that can be captured under the guise of doing what is best for supposedly incapacitated adults.  This bill is nothing more than a public/private partnership which will make all costs public, and all profits private.  And where will those profits come from??  From the estates of those targeted in this human trafficking scheme.  And to top it off….it provides immunity to everyone involved in the trafficking…even for ordinary negligence.  No explanation is forthcoming on what exactly entails “ordinary negligence”.

Please note that again we see the word “incapacity” substituted for “incompetence”.  This relieves the predators from having to pay a psychiatrist to perjure themselves in court…if they ever are even asked to appear.   This bill is nothing more than an attempt to legalize the trafficking of the elderly and disabled and make it appear that those involved are actually concerned with their well being.  The only thing these predators are concerned with is how fast they can transfer the assets of the victim into their personal accounts.

It starts with this:

SECTION 1. (a) Notwithstanding any special or general law to the contrary, there shall be a special commission established pursuant to section 2A of chapter 4 to conduct a study on adult guardianship and conservatorship practices in the commonwealth.

(b) The study shall include, but not be limited to:

(i) the identification of unmet needs in the commonwealth’s adult guardianship and conservatorship systems, including how best to meet the needs of adults of diminished capacity who lack financial resources or family or friends;

(ii) the identification, prevention and, remedying of guardianship and conservatorship abuses;

(iii) when and how it is appropriate for guardians and conservators to collect fees;

(iii) a review of alternatives to guardianship, including supportive decision-making, and how the system and our laws can encourage use of these alternatives, where appropriate; and

(iv) a review of the most recent Uniform Law Commission’s Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act, and whether the special commission established under this act would recommend the adoption and implementation of some or all of the uniform law’s provisions in the commonwealth.

(c) The commission shall file the findings of its study by July 31, 2019, with the clerks of the house and the senate, who shall forward a copy of the report to the chairs of the house and senate committees on ways and means and the house and senate chairs of the joint committee on the judiciary.
