The human trafficking in the ELDERLY (Elder Cleansing) meets the definition that most States and the United States have for CRIMINAL ELDER ABUSE. Why then is there no Criminal Prosecutions?
Elder Abuse generally falls in 7 categories, to wit:
· Physical abuse is defined as any act of violence that causes pain, injury, impairment, or disease, including striking, pushing, force-feeding, and improper use of physical restraints or medication.
· Psychological or emotional abuse is conduct that causes mental anguish. Examples include threats, verbal or nonverbal insults, isolation, and humiliation. Some legal definitions require identification of at least 10 episodes of this type of behavior within a single year to constitute abuse.
· Financial abuse is misuse of an elderly person’s money or assets for personal gain. Acts such as stealing (e.g., money, social security checks, possessions) or coercion (e.g., changing a will, assuming power of attorney) constitute financial abuse.

Barbara suffered a stroke and passed away.
Reporter admits many families fighting abusive gships in Michigan.
You know, I bet over and over Gov. C of NY has been told that nursing homes are horrible dangerous places that just kill people by neglect and often abuse. Why do we have them? I have no idea other than to allow the wealthy to soak up govt medicare/medicaid and state health care funds.
Notice how this NY Post article is careful to avoid even a mere whiff of mentioning the dangerous abusive care in most nursing homes.

If your service has been interrupted for non payment, if you still don’t pay your bill by 5/3/19, you will be transferred to their “Assistance Program” and you will be allowed to pay only $14.95 per month until “further announcement”. Speeds will be minimal at 25/3 Mbps, but for many this will be a life saver.
Once the program is ended, you will be responsible for all past due balances.
They promise reconnection in about an hour, and I assume that’s once you fork over the min. $14.95 for the month.
I don’t know why they aren’t offering payment plans, but what ever. I hope this really helps many people out there.
And for all those small businesses out there that got their stimulus loans bounced for big business, I hope they return all those millions so the true mom and pop businesses out there can get some relief. I…

I think we all knew this was coming. Nursing homes are ghettos for the elderly and death traps.
The scandal of the ‘sheltered care’ nursing homes is finally getting some media attention. The problem in Illinois (and in many other states) is the marriage between the political establishment and the leaders of the industry. It is suggested that the regulation of the NURSING HOMES is not only lax, but corrupt. The Philip Esformes case, while having a situs in Florida, gave an intimate view of the industry, including the massive payoffs to public officials that fueled the operation of facilities. The lack of media attention is also extremely interesting – including the benign manner that the 23 deaths are reported. It is an open secret that paramedics have complained of nursing home deaths too often yield corpses that are in RIGOR when they arrive – and the deaths are…
