Guardians from Hell

The completely legal, utterly grotesque system for undermining the rights of the elderly
June 21, 2018 • 2:00 PM

At 92-years-old, Virginia “Jean” Wahab hadn’t lost any of the vitality and health she maintained throughout her life. She raised two daughters as a single mom and made a home for them in the Detroit, Michigan suburb of Oak Park. Wahab worked on her feet and didn’t retire from her job at a local family restaurant until she was 88.

Fiercely independent, Wahab was quite happy living at home after retirement. She had a healthy social life. She did her own grocery shopping and chores. She so rarely needed to pay a visit to a hospital that her health insurance was barely touched.

From FB: 13 year old charged with juvenile deliquency over recording the school principal!

MaryGSykes.com

While this article gets a number of things wrong (juveniles can only be charged with juvenile deliquency NOT with any actual crime), this article does show several issues 1) no one really understands the Illinois Eavesdropping Act of 2014; 2) Adults in charge of children who don’t want to be held accountable may get an overzealous prosecutor to use it to quell 1st Amendment rights of children in the US and 3)  it’s a near impossible battle to charge anyone with using a cell phone to record an event, they’re so prevalent, we may as just forget that one.  But, if the principal didn’t want to be recorded, he should have just walked away and emailed the student and the student’s parents.

In reality, the principal is a public servant and as such, he should expect to be recorded. Most principals get paid handsomely for a 9 to 5 or…

From YT: Another country heard from as to why nursing homes just don’t work

MaryGSykes.com

However, the highlight of this URL is the following top comment:

Nursing homes are foul disgusting pits of hell, even the nicest ones in the best neighborhoods. The reek of piss and misery and hopelessness. The whole industry is just warped from top to bottom. You can’t warehouse helpless people and then hire unskilled workers and have them care for them with compassion and understanding. The whole concept doesn’t work. These people should be with their families or maybe even foster families. If this was about nursing, these nurses are very uncompassionate. It is usually about getting rid of unwanted old people who need a little extra help in life. I can only imagine what they uncovered and what they didn’t is probably much worse. These people aren’t valued, aren’t considered cute any more, they are looked at as living human waste and dollar signs. Even people who think they…

From RM: On restricting access to courts

MaryGSykes.com

Here is an interesting article with the basic law and then Kansas cases

http://www.kscourts.org/PDF/Request_for_Comments_on_Guidelines_for_Judges_to_Restrict_Filings.pdf

and here is an excerpt.

Generally tho, when a judge issues a “cannot file” order, it just means you have to file a motion to file and declaration with your motion.

Most pro se litigants do not know this, so it stops them from filing 95% of the time and the judge’s problem is solved.

Summary of Authorities for Judges Considering
Whether to Restrict Court Filings
This document, which was prepared by the Kansas Supreme Court Access to Justice
Committee, is intended to be a summary of current case law and legislation about restricting
court filings submitted by abusive litigants. The Summary of Authorities does not constitute a
rule or order of the court.

The Fourteenth Amendment provides a right of access to the courts, which
includes access…
