From JF on FB: Guardianship is still a dangerous proposition

MaryGSykes.com

Janice Fendel The victims or Wards are kept under lock and key.
They are traumatized as they are transported away from their homes without their consent and oftentimes without their comprehension of where they are being taken or for what reason and for what period of time.
Isolation is a key element of the typical lives of state Wards, including absolute or near-total separation from a family member who has joint ownership of assets, property and money.
Identification documents, whether driver licenses, Social Security cards, or passports, are routinely taken from elders even before they have a court hearing. This also prevents them from breaking out of this confinement to hire an attorney of their choice or get cash to hide and not go back where they were held captive. THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ARE TOTALLY VIOLATED
Verbal attacks, incarceration, and Baker Act imprisonments are part and parcel of the…

Lillie White, above, an octogenarian from Palm Coast, Florida, went missing in August 2016. She was last seen at a doctor’s office where her niece Sheila had taken her for a checkup. Sheila was confused when an assistant called her into a back room to fill out more medical forms for her aunt, but she complied. When she returned to the waiting room, Aunt Lillie was gone. Sheila was told she had been escorted from the office by a court-appointed guardian who had refused to reveal where she was taking the 88-year-old.

Sheila and White’s other relatives quickly discovered that her sole granddaughter, who had been removed from White’s will, had convinced a court to…

When the government becomes the criminal……

Let’s hear it for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, protecting the little guy.

In case you didn’t know, civil forfeiture laws have been implicated in police depts reselling all sorts of items, and then wasting the money on parties, and all sorts of nonsense purchases.  It’s nothing but govt gone wild.

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday that the Constitution’s ban on excessive fines applies to the states, an outcome that could help efforts to rein in police seizure of property from criminal suspects. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the court’s opinion in favor of Tyson Timbs, of Marion, Indiana.

Police seized Timbs’ $40,000 Land Rover when they arrested him for selling about $400 worth of heroin. The Institute for Justice, which…

From BP; Case law on how the state cannot remove your child from your home without a warrant signed by a judge

MaryGSykes.com

In Illinois there are tons of kids removed from their homes without a warrant by DCFS.

Why a warrant?  A warrant must be accompanied by an affidavit that makes sense and clearly states probably cause.  It is then reviewed by the judge and signed off by a judge.  This may not be a perfect system, but you do have a prosecutor involved, a judge involved, not just some BS from DCFS.  (Brian Peterson case)

Here is the law on that issue.  If you have a state or medical kidnap case, be sure to know your rights. DO NOT TALK TO DCFS OR THE POLICE without your lawyer being present.  Tell DCFS you will cooperate but they must put questions in writing and your lawyer will answer those questions for you.

Too many false removals in Illinois.

Know your rights.

Don’t put your kids in danger into a system in Illinois…

State watchdog does little to hold court-appointed guardians accountable

No guardians removed, 132 investigations open

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A state watchdog set up to police Florida’s troubled guardianship system has taken little action to hold court-appointed guardians accountable for serious violations, the I-Team found.

The Office of Public and Professional Guardians – set up by lawmakers in 2016 – has handed out only 19 warning letters since it was established, state records show.
