From the Wall Street Journal–$700,000 in fees in 30 months–what a Guardianship is all about!

MaryGSykes.com

More mainstream media coverage!  Yes.  The title?  ABUSE PLAGUES SYSTEM OF LEGAL GUARDIANS.  And they act like it’s something new.

From the Wall Street Journal, an article on the g-ship of Linda McDowell, 71 years old.

But guardianship systems across the country are plagued by allegations of financial exploitation and abuse, despite waves of overhaul efforts. As a result, critics say, many elderly people with significant assets become ensnared in a system that seems mainly to succeed at generating billings. “These laws which were designed to protect the vulnerable are being used against them to exploit them,” says Dr. Sam Sugar, founder of Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship, an advocacy group.

But the roughly 1.5 million adult guardianships in the U.S. involve an estimated $273 billion in assets, according to Anthony Palmieri, auditor for the guardianship fraud program in Palm Beach County, Fla.

How the nursing homes are becoming far more dangerous than ever imagined–now they call in SWAT teams!

MaryGSykes.com

from the following article:

http://countercurrentnews.com/2014/01/how-police-became-a-standing-army/#

After first describing how a SWAT team descended upon an animal shelter for housing for one night a fawn abandoned by its mother, came the note:

Eleven days later and less than 100 miles away, staff at a nursing home in the Chicago suburb of Park Forest called paramedics after 95-year-old World War II veteran John Wrana, suffering from a delusional episode, refused medical treatment. The paramedics in turn called the police, which further agitated Wrana, who threatened them with his cane and a knife. The police responded by shooting Wrana with stun guns and bean bags fired from a shotgun. Wrana died from internal bleeding shortly thereafter.

Jerome Larkin head Aministrator of the ARDC has joined forces with attorneys and judges to make sure that YOUR parents and grandparents are routinely housed in nursing homes against their will and without their or YOUR consent. …

Dirty Attorney pleads to Misprison of Felony for covering up cop’s crimes

MaryGSykes.com

http://filmingcops.com/dirty-prosecutor-admits-to-covering-up-for-cop-who-shoved-gun-down-victims-throat/

Apparently the DA attorney a Ms. Worrell had a “close relationship” with a dirty cop who handcuffed a suspect, beat him up and shoved a gun down the victim’s throat.

Instead of helping the victim file charges against the officer, the DA helped the police officer file false charges against the victim, adding insult to injury.

It is believed Ms. Worrell will face only 18 months probation for her crime.

If Larkin is involved he would just give her a reprimand.

For reporting on dirty attorneys and such in Illinois honest attorneys get suspended for 3 to 4 years.

The cover-up of the Elder Cleansing scandal has grabbed my attention and marvels me.     It is absolutely amazing that public officials have the temerity to act with criminal intent and actually get away with it.  Every day it puzzles me that here in America so many senior citizens and disabled people are literally kidnapped, and robbed of their dignity and few are even concerned.    Indeed, when a rapist is loose in a neighborhood everyone starts locking doors and windows, walking in pairs, and a hue and cry is raised.     However, when an elderly and/or disabled person is seized, packaged into one of the hell hole nursing homes to lie in his/her own urine pursuant to an ultra vires court order…

Free and support the Unity 5 Journalists in Myanmar Jailed for Free Speech

MaryGSykes.com

One of the things Myanmar is severely lacking is free speech.

In this article we have Muslims being banned from political office:

http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2015/10/myanmar-muslim-free-election-151024182312301.html

Next, we have Amnesty International complaining about the Unity 5 or 5 banned imprisoned journalists for merely speaking the truth:

https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/campaigns/2015/04/journalists-silenced-in-myanmar-free-the-unity-five/

On World Press Freedom Day we remind the government of their promises to foster a free press and demand freedom for the ‘Unity Five’.

“What I want is more media freedom.” These are the words of Tint San, Chief Executive Officer at the Unity newspaper in Myanmar during his trial. His crime? Doing his job.

In January 2014, weekly newspaper Unity published an article about an alleged secret chemical weapons factory in Magwe Region, central Myanmar. Reporting that the factory was built in 2009 on land that was confiscated from farmers.

The government was quick to deny the story and responded by seizing copies of the…

FBI used to investigate political conservatives and suppress First Amendment speech

MaryGSykes.com

from the Wall Street Journal:

http://www.wsj.com/articles/john-doe-goes-to-washington-1445899241

Our readers know that Democratic prosecutors in Wisconsin tried to criminalize the political speech of Governor Scott Walker’s allies, but it turns out their ambitions didn’t stop at the state line. New evidence shows that John Doe investigators were trawling the files they collected via subpoenas and search warrants for information on national conservatives.

The documents are under seal in a state court case, Eric O’Keefe and Wisconsin Club for Growth v. Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB), but two sources have read them to us. The lawsuit is a complaint against the GAB, the state agency that worked with Milwaukee prosecutors on the John Doe that used campaign-finance laws to trample the First Amendment.

This is all entirely interesting that Wisconsin is a hot bed of supressing the First Amendment, because union complained they could not protest at the capital when Wisconsin became…
