Minnesota Protecting the Professional Predators in Guardianship

2 Comments

Marti Oakley

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

There is no Constitutional provision for negating of law into unlawful or illegal statutes.

The only possible way to rectify this assault on the elderly and other vulnerable men and women who have been declared to have suffered a civil death at the hands of these civil tribunals, is to abolish them altogether.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The elderly in Minnesota, as they are across the country, have been, and are, being targeted for exploitation by professional, for-profit guardians. Guardianship has been described as the fastest growing cottage industry in the country. The trafficking of the elderly through the probate system has allowed the theft of estates and the accompanying isolation and abuse of the targeted individual. As a result, the greatest transfer of wealth in this country, is not from the rich to the poor, but rather, from the elderly to professional predators who game this system for profit. It is aledged that 5-10 billion is stolen annually from the elderly by these predators. Generational wealth in the form of inheritance is being stolen from intended heirs.

Its no Different in Minnesota

Minnesota government at all levels has allowed a predatory, for profit system to flourish and, has even colluded with those who profit from the trafficking through a civil tribunal system in order to facilitate the kidnapping, isolation and financial exploitation of the elderly, the disabled and other vulnerable men and women. Allegedly, many of our legislators are connected through business associations to the most virulent of these predators. The business of trafficking the elderly for profit has become so lucrative that large fiduciary corporations who profit from this activity have sprung up across the state.

Probate “courts” are civil tribunals; they are not courts of law, nor are they courts of record. Probate was to become active only upon presentation of the death certificate, and then only to determine if the estate was testate or intestate. (With a will, or without one) The only duty of probate was to determine the distribution of assets to the appropriate heirs. The probate examiner was to have only one clear purpose; fact finding. This was extended to include guardianship and conservator ship of the living man or woman. As it is used today, either of these acts against the living man or woman, causes the civil death of that man or woman. The granting of guardianship petitions is the de facto death certificate.

Sec. 11. Probate jurisdiction.

Original jurisdiction in law and equity for the administration of the estates of deceased persons and all guardianship and incompetency proceedings, including jurisdiction over the administration of trust estates and for the determination of taxes contingent upon death, shall be provided by law.

Michigan Probate Puts Elderly and Disabled in Danger

Leave a comment

Gretchen Rachel Hammond

on Facebook

I’m not giving up.

If I have to fight alone the Michigan Attorney General, along with all her supporters, the Michigan State Legislature, a collectively apathetic Michigan media, Facebook and this damnable probate court until the attorneys and judges committing atrocities against the elderly and developmentally disabled are in jail, I will.

I know a lot of folks are probably sick of what you could argue had become a single note in my life of late. I can’t share it here at the moment but I’ll be damned if I’m going to stop trying to raise awareness.

But if it was you, and you saw these crimes against the helpless, knew they were still happening and it was equally clear no one, outside the victims, their families or advocacy groups, gave a shit or was prepared to take any action, what would you do?

So in the spirit of #JonathanVanderhagen who was jailed for calling out a Michigan judge, Dana Nessel are you listening?

I accuse you of being complicit in the abuse, neglect, torture, robbery, brutalization and isolation of Michigan’s most vulnerable.

I accuse you of being an accomplice in the destruction of evidence of these crimes.

I accuse you of breaching your duty as Attorney General and of outright deception to the people of Michigan.

Are you sufficiently threatened yet? If so, I dare you to come and arrest me.

Because if you think because I’m alone I’m weak, you understand very little. If you have anything to do with protecting the people committing those crimes and you are not afraid, then you understand nothing at all.

So, for your own sake, understand this:

I’m going to find you. I’m going to expose you and I will never ever stop.

Tonight, Patricia & Robert Femia join us to talk about the downstream effects of predatory guardianships. Patricia’s mother, captured and isolated from her family, soon succumbed to the psychological torture inflicted upon her. In a classic case of trauma based bonding, she rejected all ties to her daughter and her family. Instead, she identified with her captors. In what was a clear case of the Stockholm Syndrome, and the effects on the family as this unfolded were staggering.

“This horrific ordeal has left me and my family completely heart-broken. My mother was taken care of and had her daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren living closely around her every day. She lived comfortably, was healthy and had her independence for many years. Once this whole scenario unfolded,she died all alone in a nursing home.”

Tune in as Patricia and Robert tell how they managed to survive this attack on their family, and where are they today in managing the damage.

Updated Open Letter to MI AG Dana Nessel to include developments in Wayne, Macomb, Washtenaw and St. Clair Counties.

Leave a comment

Please share widely.

“During your campaign, you pledged that “As AG, I will increase resources to defend seniors from neglect, abuse, and exploitation. I’ll ensure that unsafe assisted living facilities and in-home care providers are stripped of their licenses, issue scam notifications for public awareness, and vigorously prosecute cases of Medicaid fraud.”

It seems this particular promise came with conditions that did not include anyone other than allegedly abusive family members or low-level nursing home employees such as CNAs.

Clearly, with regards to this issue, you are just another corrupt politician.”

Open letter to Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel

Ms. Nessel,

In 2018, as you were running for Michigan Attorney General, I was an award-winning investigative journalist, member of the LGBTQ community and Democrat. Had I also been a resident of Michigan, I would have cast an enthusiastic vote for both you and Governor Gretchen Whitmer. This was not because of my political and social backgrounds.

I’ve interviewed politicians, lines of them. All of them parroted whatever talking points they thought my newspaper’s readers wanted to hear. The post-election reality was, as expected, entirely different.

You ran a campaign that seemed to be based on genuine sincerity rather than expedient politics.
“It’s just a basic belief that it’s never the wrong time to fight for justice,” you said. “It’s never the wrong time to fight for what’s right, and that there are so many people out there clamoring for representation, clamoring to have their voices heard, clamoring for recognition of their rights and equal dignity, just as human beings.”

Having spent my career, driven by the same ideology, your promises resonated with me as much as they clearly did with Michigan’s voters who included the voiceless.

But the post-election reality is that you have not only broken that promise, but actively shielded the alleged perpetrators of some of the most horrific and repugnant crimes and flagrant abuses of civil and human rights in Michigan’s history. More

Whistleblower’s! Is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblower’s Summit, taking place July 29 thru Aug. 1st, in Washington,D.C

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How bad does the guardian-for-profit system have to become before we stop this protected racket of human trafficking of the elderly by these predatory vultures?  The very idea that anyone has to flee this country to escape being trafficked in this system is unthinkable.

Join us this evening as former Minnesota resident Joanne Bougalis, tells of her mother’s capture by a professional guardian and the subsequent deterioration in her mothers’, Katherine Bougalis, health and psychological conditions that resulted from being unnecessarily institutionalized, by the guardian, and forcibly drugged with Ativan and Seroquel.  After several attempts to free her mother from the guardianship which were of course rejected by the court which appears to be the protection arm of this dirty business, Joanne and her mother fled the country and are living safely and happily in Greece.  Katherine’s assets which were sizable are steadily being accessed by profiteers even as she is denied any access to those same assets.  While still living in Minnesota a hearing for Katherine was scheduled. She was also made unavailable for her own hearing by the guardian after a doctor’s appointment was scheduled conveniently for the same time as the hearing.

Fleeing America

The guardian has been made aware in writing three years in a row where his ward is located. He continues to fraudulently report her missing and her whereabouts unknown in his annual reports. He ignores requests to step down claiming his position is supported by the Judge. He was notified both by Katherine’s son and by Social Security of her whereabouts. He took specific steps to delay her social security, and took no steps to provide living and medical expenses for his ward, although it appears from reports the guardian is still paying (someone’s) medical expenses.

Having been stripped of all her rights, via the designation of “ward” of the state and suffering a “civil death”, could Katherine now be viewed as escaped human property? Apparently so! As her owner of record continues to bill her estate each year!

The Silver Standard: Is That Really What You Voted For?

Leave a comment

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

From the Editor’s Desk

 

In most states, if a son, a daughter, or a caretaker:

locks Mom up in her bedroom, blocks her access to the telephone, withholds her personal mail, and refuses to allow her to see her friends and members of her family, that’s a crime, and the perpetrator(s) may be criminally charged, tried, and convicted of elder abuse. But, if Mom is under guardianship, and her guardian forces her into a nursing home against her will and the will of her family, denies Mom a phone, and isolates her from her friends, family, and loved ones, that’s considered “care.”

Guardians currently have the power to isolate the very people whose lives they are supposed to be caring for and protecting. They can do this without the knowledge of the court and without having to justify their actions. In fact, isolation provides an effective and commonly used weapon to wield against any family member who complains about a guardian or the guardian’s decisions.

When a professional or private guardian abuses a person under his or her control, defining it as “protection,” that guardian is immune or quasi-immune from prosecution.

Much to their credit, every member of both the Rhode Island Senate and House of Representatives voted yea to the NASGA~Falk Coalition bill criminalizing wrongful isolation and expanding the definition of “caretaker” to include court-appointed guardians and conservators as well as attorney-in-fact.  This was an absolutely huge step forward in the protection of Rhode Island’s current and future senior population, which is the 11th highest in the country at 16.8 % of their total population.

The bill then went to the desk of Governor Gina M. Raimondo, who after some tweeting in her ear by some of her favored “special interest” birdies, chose to veto the bill.

Those birdies were: More

FLORIDA FLAGLER COUNTY COURT CONTINUES TO ENDORSE HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION OF A SENIOR 89-year-old African-American Woman Abducted and Isolated from Core Family for Two Years

“Teresa Kennedy explained, “Over the last two years I’ve reached out to the offices of Governor Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Judge Terrence R. Perkins, Secretary Mike Carroll of the Florida Department of Children and Families, among others.

Contact: Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy, elderdignity@hotmail.com, 212-901-6913

PALM COAST, FL – Today marks the two-year anniversary of the abduction of Dr. Lillie Sykes White in one of the most egregious elder exploitation cases in Florida. An overview video can be viewed at http://www.elderdignity.org. Dr. White’s only living sibling, 82-year-old Columbia University-trained journalist Janie Sykes-Kennedy, has been blocked from seeing her sister for 730 days, and Dr. White’s fifty-plus nieces and nephews also don’t know her whereabouts. While she is being sequestered in an undisclosed location, a team of attorneys, including three agents appointed by the Flagler County Court, have spent and/or are billing upwards of $1 million against her assets. It follows the “Isolate, Medicate, Steal the Estate” pattern that has been documented in fraudulent elder guardianships across the country. It has been equated to Nazi Germany and modern-day slavery—seniors are taken and isolated for the sole purpose of financial exploitation. More

Governor Baker’s Appointee to the Supreme Judicial Court Nominating Commission, Atty. Marsha V. Kazarosian Attempts to Silence Whistleblower

90-Year Old Marvin Siegel Remains Under 24/7 House Guard as High-Profile Lawyers Drain Millions from His Estate

by Broadside Staff

The Boston Broadside has previously detailed in a four-part series the systematic draining of the estate of 90-year-old Boxford resident Marvin Siegel by Governor Charlie Baker’s 2016 appointee, Attorney Marsha V. Kazarosian, and other lawyers.

During the past seven years, millions have been drained from the retiree’s estimated $9 million estate. He’s expected to be tapped out within a year.

Where has the money gone? To lawyers, lawyers, lawyers, elder service providers, and the like. Heck, the lawyers even charge one another to talk to each other and to send e-mails to one another, and then bill the estate. They also spend money on the daily care of Marvin, including their posted 24/7/365 “guards,” as Marvin’s daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger refers to his round-the-clock paid “caregivers,” whom she has detailed keep the senior isolated in his Boxford home. Lisa has also detailed how these “so-called medical providers have denied her dad his basic dignity: he can’t even use a cell phone to talk to his grandchildren!”

How did Marvin Siegel Get Grabbed?

What the Erie Co. Surrogate/ Probate Court “Judge” Barbara Howe and her Posse of Evil Lawyers are responsible for

9 Comments

Anne Morales“On November 21, 2016, when my Father was on Death’s Doorstep (e-mails and Hospital reports show)- one of the Lawyers filed a new Petition to, SURPRISE – SURPRISE, declare my Father “Incapacitated” and in need of a “Permanent Guardian” which is outrageous. He hung on for a while, but died one month later, and by filing this phony Petition all the Lawyers involved were now in control of everything of His, and are still in the picture even though there is no one to be a “Guardian” of. Proving once and for all what we are dealing with was NEVER ACTUALLY about my Fathers Well Being or Him as a Person, but them getting ALL His Finances $$ & Property for themselves!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ed Visser-PA Petition-Cem Plot 2016

What the Erie Co. Surrogate/ Probate Court “Judge” Barbara Howe and her Posse of Evil Lawyers are responsible for doing to my beloved Father. The person my brother’s and I loved and respected very much. An extremely talented man who contributed greatly to his community and DID NOT deserve this ungodly end. I also have a plethora of pictures-video-evidence which tells the Whole story. There is no excuse for what happened.

It’s why I want the people responsible exposed/ held to account / stopped before they destroy one more life because of their (beyond the pale) GREED and ABUSE OF POWER.

As Officers of the Court- Lawyers have an obligation to TELL THE TRUTH- not manipulate the system for their own greedy gain or sick Agendas.

None of us should tolerate what has happened here, because anyone could find themselves in a similar situation. Martin Luther King said it all in his letter from Birmingham jail:-

 “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” – “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly”

In my Father’s case there ISN’T ONE Court Petition or Court Order that wasn’t done in a Fraudulent manner – the paper trail / transcripts & evidence is crystal clear my Father and our Family’s RIGHTS were seriously trampled so a bunch of Evil Lawyer’s and a “Next door neighbor” who should never have been in the picture, could make themselves a lot of my Father’s money that never belonged to them ($200,000 and counting!!!) My Father had 3 Children and 8 Grandchildren to give his worldly goods to. Not once did “Judge” Barbara Howe follow (interpret) the Law or rule in my Father’s behalf- she along with her “posse” made it up as they went along.  It has been a ONE SIDED FALSE NARRATIVE since February 2015, and even though my Father has been dead since December 2016, the same Players ARE STILL in the picture, racking up more bills, filing more false Petitions and creating Havoc. It has been Pure Insanity.

“An Unjust Law is No Law at All”; St. Augustine.

My Father’s wife Gladys Visser died October 23, 2014- It was a simple matter.

In Her Will, she gave everything she owned to my Father and one other beneficiary – her hairdresser- $5,000.00.

My Father and his wife owned 2 homes- one in Alabama which was in both their names and the one in Amherst, NY, which was given to Gladys by her ex-husband in 1970. It was still in her maiden Married name of “Orser”. My Father’s Lawyer told us it was a simple transaction of transferring the house into his name, as he was living in it, having been married to Gladys for over 20+ years, and my Father being the one who maintained it financially.

Instead of being a simple transfer though it has turned into a Nightmare of Epic proportions – a 2 1/2 year – “Hostile Takeover and Land Grab” and still not over! – Long story short – The next door neighbor who was named as Executor of Gladys Will got the Court involved because he thought he was going to get everything from my Fathers and Gladys Estate.  Then, instead of the neighbor taking over (because my Father did not want him to be Executor), a “TEMPORARY” Public Administrator (Acea Mosey) was given the reins (against my Fathers Petition and wishes), who had a LEGAL obligation to probate Gladys Visser Will within a reasonable time frame. She absolutely refused to put the Deed of the House into my Fathers name. Obviously done to control the outcome (which she is sill doing).

By controlling the Deed to the House- they controlled my Father’s life and my Family. The Attorneys spent from March 2015 through all of 2016 trying to declare my Father incapacitated, which he was not as numerous Videos, Physician’s reports and other reports prove (done without a Hearing and most of the time while he was not being represented by Counsel). Importantly, Prior to my Fathers Wife’s Death, He was the one taking care of the Her, their household, doing errands, Driving Her around because she was ill with Emphysema.  Not one person ever filed anything with the Court or any other agency believing him to be “Incapacitated”, unable to live in his own home or in need of Court intervention.  More

Day 60 of Dr. Lillie White’s abduction and isolation by professional guardian and attorney Sara Caldwell

Leave a comment

Florida elected leadership, elder protection advocates, Sara Caldwell, Tance Roberts, Sean Bogle, and the media,

dougToday I write with a heavy heart as it marks Day 60 of Dr. Lillie White’s abduction and isolation by professional guardian and attorney Sara Caldwell, her attorney Tance Roberts and the court’s investigative attorney Sean Bogle with the full endorsement of Flagler County FL Judge Margaret Hudson. I have come to anticipate predatory guardian’s actions and have learned how to pressure them. Exposure is often the innocent victim’s only ally. Dr. White had resided at her home at 22 Wellford Lane in Palm Coast, FL.

Sadly after two weeks of working the phone and email full time I have failed to find this 88 year old or any Florida authority who could or would intercede with Sara Caldwell to force her to reveal Lillie’s location to her family.

Democracies normally use a series of checks and balances to insure equal justice for all. Law enforcement investigate, district attorney’s prosecute, judges adjudicate, and juries determine guilt or innocence. However, in adult guardianships a single person, a judge, has sole responsibility for all four components, including immunity. As judges can be easily swayed, official law enforcement is your best ally when professional predatory guardians engage in blatant criminal activities, including human trafficking.

In Florida, I have found every criminal investigative entity defer to the judge’s orders when charges involve a guardian. Every entity, including the leadership, I have contacted have deferred to Judge Hudson to investigate Lillie’s abduction and insure her welfare. Those include:
– 7th District Chief Judge
– 7th District Clerk of Courts
– Florida Supreme Court Administrator of Courts
– Flagler County Sheriff
– Florida Adult Protective Services
– Florida Department of Elder Affairs
– Florida Office of Public and Professional Guardians
– Florida Department of Law Enforcement
– Florida Attorney General

No one should wonder why guardianship abuse in Florida is such a problem. By design the probate judge assumes control and authority over 10 government investigative bodies and all aspects of appointment, authority, and immunity for the actions of a guardian. If they are negligent or willfully engage in corrupt practices their damages go on unimpeded. Families entrapped in an involuntary and abusive guardianship have nowhere to turn but to the judge who is sponsoring it.

Would Judge Hudson, AG Pam Bondi, or Gov. Scott accept having a loved one isolated for 60 days and their estate confiscated with no way to see or speak to them?

Regards,

Richard W. Black

Guardianship Gulag: Elder Abuse Falsely Confines Woman

11 Comments

By Gerald Boland

GUEST EDITORIAL:

When Gerald Boland and Mary Jane Snell complain to hospital MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER (MMC), Las Cruces about accommodations and care; MMC’s alleged retaliation is to maliciously petition (THIRD JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT) for guardianship! Guardian’s Sandy Meyer and Alaina Johnson (dba ADVOCATE SERVICES OF LAS CRUCES, LLC) immediately take dictatorial control to permanently separate-isolate Mary from Gerald.

Hospital MMC misuses Gerald’s information about Mary’s fear (phobia-panic) of medical scene as a risk-management ploy to divert attention away from negligence allegations by Mary and Gerald. MMC hires a cadre to falsely diagnose Mary incapacitated, appoint guardians, and commit victim to nursing home where they sadistically, knowingly, induce sustained mental-emotional-panic, trauma, and deep-deep-depression, crying, and forced separation!

Mary asked the (unnecessary) appointed guardian Sandy Meyer, “why are you doing this to me, what did I ever do to you?” A logical woman’s question, being abruptly swept away to a nursing home!

Sagecrest Nursing & Rehab disregards Mary’s reported fall on January 31, 2015, guardians disrespect Mary with indifference to her strongly spoken desire to be released to come home and resume life. Guardian’s indifference, court’s indifference, Guardian ad Litem’s indifference, court visitor’s indifference and psychologist’s indifference weakens Mary by design.

Elder abuse, false diagnosis, hypnotic-psychotropic medications that double mortality and can induce a cardiac-arrest, and false confinement that deliberately traumatize Mary, continues since January 21, 2015! Mary is competent at home and elsewhere, only meds for hypertension and allergies, just scared-panicked around doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes. More

Margarita Zelada on the Monterey County Public Guardian

Published on Nov 10, 2013 

Monterey County Deputy Public Guardian Jennifer Empasis alleged that Patricia Conklin financially abused her mother, Margarita Zelada.  Margarita clearly stated that Patricia did not abuse her in any way.  No financial abuse charges were filed.  However, the Public Guardian refused to terminate the conservatorship of Margarita’s estate.

The public guardian entered Margarita Zelada’s home with police officers who had their guns drawn, to forcibly and involuntarily remove Margarita from her home.

The estate is valued at about $1.5M  The Public Guardian keeps Margarita confined and isolated at Senior Paradise in Del Rey Oaks, California.  Margarita has been allowed to see Patricia only twice since March 2013.

(editor’s Note:  What is the estate worth now that the public guardian has had total control and access to the estate assets?)

California passed AB 937 to clarify that conservatees retain the right to have visitors, phone calls, and personal mail.  Isolation and false imprisonment constitute criminal elder abuse under Penal Code 368.

Modesto elder abuse: Professional fiduciary Laurie Jamison isolates June Guinn

____________________________________________________________

Examiner.com

Since 2008, professional fiduciary Laurie Jamison has hidden June Guinn, 88, from her family.  Until a week ago, family say they did not know where June was hidden or if she was still alive.  Thanks to the efforts of Modesto Police Department, June was located at a home in Modesto, California.  Jamison continues to deny June any contact with her loved ones.

Probate Code 2352(b) states:

The conservator shall select the least restrictive appropriate residence, as described in Section 2352.5, that is available and necessary to meet the needs of the conservatee, and that is in the best interests of the conservatee.

Modesto, CA

Location:   Laurie Jamison 1138 Orchid Court Modesto, ca

(37.638301849365 ; -120.9995880127)

California’s Notice of Conservatee’s Rights instructs that a conservatee retains the right to “receive visits from family and friends.”

California’s Handbook for Conservators gives conservators specific guidance concerning visitation.  Each conservator is required to have a copy of the Handbook.

When a person becomes a conservatee, he or she does not lose the right to visit with friends or family.

Do not isolate the conservatee by keeping friends or family away.

June’s daughters and grandson say Jamison ignored their repeated requests to learn where June resided, to visit with June, or to even speak to with June on the phone.  In response to that isolation, the Court instructed: More

Joining us again will be Craig Keesler as he continues to document his fight for June’s life.  The predatory guardian who took ownership of June, continues to operate without a license and without any interference from the California Fiduciary Oversight Board.

Later in the show, June’s daughter Lynda will join us from the East Coast to discuss her mother’s case.

June’s residence, listed as her current address, appears for all intents and purposes to be abandoned.

Guardianship: Legally Imposed Slavery?

6 Comments

 Laura Francais-Eugene

“If you think a guardianship situation cannot be the equivalent of legally imposed slavery, ask 78-year-old Margaret Carson, an African-American woman residing in Washington, DC. She is lively, alert, in full control of her faculties. Her only vice (in the eyes of the manager of the Ashbury Dwellings senior housing complex where she lives) is that she has too many mementos in her apartment of her five children, all of whom she outlived.”

As human beings, we live in a world of relationships. There are, of course, hundreds or even thousands of relationships we can name to describe how one person relates to another: parent-child; employer-employee; landlord-tenant.

Relationships take place within the context of a situation – in other words, how one person is situated in regard to another person, as we compare their roles, their rights, their power and obligations – legal, moral and otherwise. For example, the parent-child relationship takes place within the context of the Family or Familial relationship. Bosses and workers relate to each other in the contact of an Employment relationship. Landlords and tenants are acquainted over the matter of property usage. And as mentioned, rights and obligations and powers are assigned to each of the participants by our society’s laws and traditions.

Two other situations in which human beings “relate” to each other – one, thankfully, is largely historic and passé in terms of its place in society. The other is – perhaps unfortunately – very modern and quietly, even at times insidiously prevalent in society.

The first situation is a word we are all familiar with – “slavery”. The relationship is that of master-to-slave. The second situation is something modern mechanisms of law calls “guardianship,” and the relationship there is Guardian-to-Ward, or sometimes Trustee-to-Trustor.

I looked-up both words in Black’s Law Dictionary. That reference book describes “slavery” as a situation – a relationship between human beings – in which one person has absolute power and control over the property, the fortunes, and even the life of another person, at the Master’s discretion, for the Master’s pleasure or benefit, and with all the rights and powers in the hands of the Master to do as he pleases.

Al Katz: Holocaust Survivor Nearly Killed by Florida Public Guardian

********************************************

Al Katz survived the Holocaust in a Nazi prison camp. As a youth, he spent seven years in forced labor, nearly starved, and saw four Jewish boys shot through the head. Katz survived the Holocaust only to again experience the horrors of imprisonment and torture in the final year of his life. The Manatee County Public Guardian’s abuse of Katz reminded Katz of Nazi  cruelty and sadism. For six weeks in 2009, Katz was kept in locked units and denied the companionship of his family and friends and decent medical care. Retreating into teenage memories, Katz believed he was once again a prisoner of the Nazis and subject to their torture. In just two months of guardianship, Katz was nearly dead.

Unlike many victims of Public Guardians, Katz escaped before he died. Katz’s daughter, Dr. Beverly Newman, fought Manatee County’s abuse of her father. With Katz nearly dead and his estate seriously depleted, the Public Guardian was replaced by a professional guardian of the property. Katz’s daughter took him home and cared for him day and night for the last eight months of his life.

Beverly Newman has a Doctor of Education and Child Psychology. She dedicated much of 2010 to caring for her father, after rescuing him from an abusive guardianship. Dr. Newman is now an active advocate for rights of guardianship victims. More

The new cash cows: Elderly with assets

Targeting the elderly with assets

If Adult Protective Services was actually focused on protecting vulnerable adults, they have only to look to our streets that are littered with homeless, hungry and many times disoriented adults of all ages who desperately need help and protection. But…. these people have no money, and no estates to loot.  APS steps over these individuals in order to get to those who have assets.

In every state organized crime rings are operating involving the same judges, predatory guardians, attorneys, Adult Protective Services personnel, medical personnel, and participating facilities who will violate the rights of an elderly or disabled victim in exchange for payment or personal profit.

This system of theft will continue until the entire estate has been stolen leaving the victim penniless. At this point, Medicare and Medicaid are used as the cash cow to cover medical expenses and the inflated charges of nursing, the doctors’ visits and vast amounts of medications are charged off to these services costing these services millions each year in padded billing.

If predatory guardians were actually concerned about the health and welfare of their victims, there would be no need to physically kidnap, isolate and forcibly medicate these people and then to proceed on to steal their life’s savings.

Silicon Valley tax dollars fund elder abuse

Part I –

Public Guardian takes control of Gisela Riordan

San Jose, California resident Gisela Riordan, 84, prays every night for God to take her.  Imprisoned and isolated, she is denied visitors, phone calls, and mail.  Her arms are boney, and her cheeks sunken.  Her features stir memories of Holocaust survivors.  Forbidden companionship of her loved ones, Gisela languishes in despair.

Gisela has not been charged with a crime.  She has not been sentenced to prison.  No judge ordered her isolation.  Gisela lost her freedom with the stroke of a pen, when Judge Thomas Cain approved a conservatorship petition submitted by Santa Clara County Public Guardian Donald Moody.

Moody seized Gisela’s bank accounts in 2010 and sold her home in 2011.  Moody now uses Gisela’s own estate to keep her imprisoned at Villa Fontana, a residential care facility that will violate resident’s rights in exchange for payment.  Taxpayer dollars, authorized by the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, fund the Public Guardian’s abusive activities.

Before Conservatorship

Gisela Riordan was an active vibrant woman who lived life to the fullest.  Gisela and her companion of 17 years travelled the world together.   She zipped around town in a convertible, the wind in her hair and the sun on her shoulders.  Like many California transplants, she loved the beach and the waves breaking around her ankles.  Retired comfortably, Gisela and her son Marcus Riordan shared a pleasant townhouse in a desirable area of west San Jose.

March 12, 2010:  Petition for Conservatorship & Court Investigator’s Report

Kaiser Permanente contacted Adult Protective Services when Gisela was subject to physical and financial elder abuse by her bi-polar daughter.  At the time, Gisela had a full estate plan in place. Her son, Marcus Riordan, was designated in her Advance Health Care Directive, and Marcus was successor trustee for Gisela’s living trust.

Kaiser Permanente restricted Gisela from seeing Marcus. The Public Guardian petitioned for temporary and general conservatorship.  Court Investigator Herlinda Acevedo attached a report to the petition stating:

Ms. Riordan has been admitted to Kaiser Hospital 19 times in the last 12 months for depression, anxiety, atrial flutter, COPD, and issues related to complex family dynamics.

Gisela responded in a recorded phone conversation with Marcus.

Where did she get her numbers?  Out of thin air?

Acevedo’s report to the court further stated:

Ms. Riordan would like to return to her home, but has expressed reluctance to do this while her son is residing in the home.

Gisela responded in her phone conversation with Marcus.

She is a liar.  No way would I say that! We have lived together before.  That’s nothing I ever said.  That’s stupid.

It’s just stupid.  That’s false witness.  She could go to jail for that.

I’d like to come home and live with my son.  I want my money released…

I didn’t save that money for the, what are they called?  They took my money away from me.  They have no right.  I worked for that money.

It should be noted that Court Investigator’s reports were signed under penalty of perjury. More

Opportunistic Racism IN THE DC PROBATE COURT

10 Comments

Don Bowman

_______________________________________________________________________________

‘EASY (BLACK) MONEY’

You may think a probate court like the one in our nation’s capitol functions to preserve and protect the financial assets of dependent and defenseless senior citizens.  Think again!

What it mostly does is steal their money and discard the disposable human remains behind the imprimatur of government sanction, leaving only poverty, betrayal and emotional devastation in its wake.

THE UGLY REALITY IS THIS:

The DC probate system targets African-Americans and their families who have the misfortune of (a) living in its jurisdiction, and (b) lacking the political and educational wherewithal to fight back against a corrupt system of opportunistic racism that leaves victims intimidated, isolated, and outgunned in their futile resistance against a cold and cruel government take-over of their lives.  In this way, elderly African-Americans are easy pickins – a steady stream of cash-for-the-taking by greedy court minions who wouldn’t dare try this scam on more affluent and connected white families.

Just ask Jenny Horace, a 91 year old Black woman living in the North West section of Washington, DC.  Mrs. Horace is in good health and has an attentive daughter who helped her with her daily routines.  The mother enjoyed regular outings with her daughter. She attended church on Sundays and often afterwards visits with friends and neighbors.  Mrs. Horace lived independently in her home for more than 50 years.

The “problem” is that she owns her home.  This means she has money.  And the people at DC Probate want it. More
