From YT: Is the govt seizing traveler’s money and threatening them? Are civil asset forfeiture laws fair?

MaryGSykes.com

Cash grab, it is fair and reasonable?

Rarely do prosecutors charge anyone with a crime, but they seize large amounts of cash all the time, no trial no judicial review. Just some low life TSA agent takes the cash and threatens the traveler.

95% of the time the cash is grabbed and no charges are ever filed.

Cash grab investigation Part 2, is this the US? Robbed without out a gun, just a pen and a TSA badge and a pat down.

And more cash grab stories:

From ISBA- Lax control over Illinois nursing homes results in elder abuse

MaryGSykes.com

Like we all didn’t know this already. We know that all the time in Illinois nursing homes residents are not fed, not cared for, the nursing homes smell of urine and feces and the smell hits you right when you walk in. Friends and family reveal trays are plunked down in front of a frail, elderly patient promptly at 9 am, noon and 5 pm. If they don’t eat? so freaking what. The trays are taken away. The resident loses weight, they do a fake “swallow test” and put in a feeding tube laced with drugs at one end and a diaper at the other. A major nursing home operator in Chicago, Phillip Esformes is indicted in one county only in Miami Dade Florida for $2 billion in nursing home fraud and sent to prison for 20+ years. IQ 45 gets the requisite bribe of $2 million (chump change for…

From KKD: Judge Boliker has problems understanding Guardianship

MaryGSykes.com

From Ken Karl Ditkowsky:

It appears to me from the reports of today’s hearings that Judge Boliker has an extreme conflict of interest and in addition has a lack of understanding what her role is in these proceedings.     She is not a cheerleader, nor is she a party in the usual sense.      I quote from the Struck vs. Cook County Public Guardian 387 IllApp 3d 867

To the extent that James argues that the guardian’s decisions are causing harm to Janie, we note that the circuit court has a duty to protect a ward from such alleged harm.   In In re Mark W., 228 Ill.2d 365, 374-75, 320 Ill.Dec. 798, 888 N.E.2d 15 (2008), our supreme court explained that an individual who has been adjudicated disabled under the Probate Act is viewed as “ ‘a favored person in the eyes of the law’ ” and is entitled to vigilant protection.   Mark W…

On Thursday, crying, angry family members lined up to tell the first-ever statewide task force on guardianship their horror stories. Many complained that professional guardians and their attorneys are taking advantage of their loved ones, often elderly parents or grandparents.

“Shame on all of you! You all know about it! Every single one of you here knows about it,” Mitzi Perotta said.Advertisement

“My mother has been trapped in guardianship for four years,” Craig Schaeffer said.

“How long do we have before more of our wards are emotionally and financially destroyed? When will we actually see a change?” Linda DeWitte said.

Randy Robinson–case summary of guardianship abuse

MaryGSykes.com

To whom it may concern, the following pages are a revised version of a
letter written to the Michigan AG. It has mostly just been corrected of
spelling errors. But the letter points out the problems we have had with
Wayne County Probate Court. It does not follow the law! We need some
kind of oversight of the court and GALs and Guardians. I affirm that this and
the following pages are true to the best of my knowledge, under the penalty
of perjury. Randy Robinson

Dear Attorney General Dana Nesssel, this is a case of elder abuse!
And is extremely urgent! A matter of life and death!
My mother Gayle Robinson is an 88-year-old Marine Corps veteran.
She has been abused several times now! Physically, mentally and
fmancially. Wayne County Probate Court, case numbers 2014-797255-GA & 2014-

From KKD–a History of the Sallas’ Case

MaryGSykes.com

A HISTORY OF THE SALLAS HUMAN TRAFFICKING CASE

IN THE OPINION OF KEN DITKOWSKY

Amelia (Amy) and Dean Sallas (age 84) are an elderly Skokie couple who were targeted by predators who used the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois to isolate them and gain control of their substantial assets.The primary vehicle was case 07 P 5360 entitled IN RE AMELIA SALLAS.

The M.O. of the elder cleansing/human trafficking was routine.Amy was hauled before the Court, found to be so disabled as to need two guardians – one for her person and one for her property.Her husband of over 50 years was rejected in favor of strangers.The evidence presented was the usual one-sided clap trap.The standard of CLEAR AND CONVINCING EVIDENCE was obviated by the Court having the sole determination as to the quality and quantity of evidence.Any testimony presented would have satisfied this Judge.The Court made a mockery of…

From KKD: Almeda county is found by DOJ to violate the ADA

MaryGSykes.com

https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-department-finds-alameda-county-california-violates-americans-disabilities-act-and-us

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEThursday, April 22, 2021

Justice Department Finds that Alameda County, California, Violates the Americans with Disabilities Act and the U.S. Constitution

The Justice Department concluded today, based upon a thorough investigation, that there is reasonable cause to believe that Alameda County is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in its provision of mental health services, and that conditions and practices at the county’s Santa Rita Jail violate the U.S. Constitution and the ADA.

The department’s investigation found that the county fails to provide services to qualified individuals with mental health disabilities in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs. Instead, it unnecessarily institutionalizes them at John George Psychiatric Hospital and other facilities. In Olmstead v. L.C., the U.S. Supreme Court held that Title II of the ADA requires public entities to provide community-based services to persons with disabilities when appropriate services can reasonably be…

From DS: Cook County Office of Public guardian bans husband from seeing his wife of 50 years!

MaryGSykes.com

This couple has been unbelievably isolated from one another for over 18 months by the Office of Public Guardian.

There is no court order to do this. There is no reason to do this. He has never been investigated by APS or ever accused of a crime regarding his beloved wife.

Dean Sallas is about to be 84. He needs his wife.

The nursing homes have finally opened up. He goes to visit wife (who has been placed in a nursing home against her will by the Office of Public Guardian and she wants to see her husband he wants to see his wife (who is about the same age, maybe a few years younger).

This is the note he gets when he visits:

Dean Sallas
You may not visit Amelia Sallas until you have talke to Lisa Casanova and we have permission for visitations.   THIS IS A DIRECTIVDE FROM…

Circuit Court Clerk touts transparency with new bill. Critics say it’s not what she promised.

ByJosh McGhee|April 7, 2021

SHARE:PrintEmailCook County Circuit Court Clerk Iris Martinez

Alex Nitkin for The Daily Line

Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Iris Martinez speaks at a press conference at the Daley Center on Wed., April 7.

Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Iris Martinez has walked back a campaign pledge to give the public more access to records from her office under the state’s Freedom of Information Act.

The clerk is the official record keeper for the Circuit Court and is responsible for collecting and distributing tens of millions of dollars in court fines and fees. But the agency is not subject to the state’s open record laws. That exclusion means the public has largely been kept in the dark about the operations and funding of one of the largest unified court systems in the country.
