Do things like Abduction and cover ups and corruption and bribes and padding of legal bills against incapacitated elders that are un able to fight back? Elder Finacial Abuse Cases where there is money and real estate involved? Do this things really happen in America? Florida ? New York? California?

New York City Commission to Investigate Alleged Police Corruption, Knapp Commission Report on Police Corruption (1972) (this analyzes how police have been pressured or corrupted to not enforce laws, just as pre-Civil War, they were not allowed to enforce Constitutional rights and Northern states' anti-kidnaping laws even when slavers were kidnaping white women; while not all police are corrupt, those who are not, typically look the other way with respect to corrupt colleagues, so prosecutions are rare)

Keegan, Anne, "Sting in Cook County," Chicago Tribune Magazine, and 136 Reader's Digest 9-16 (June 1990) (cites widespread bribery of judges, the amounts ($50, $100, $200, for volume) and the shunning of the honest lawyer Terry Hake who worked with the FBI in identifying the bribers).

Kelly, John F., and Phillip K. Wearne, Tainting Evidence: Inside the Scandals at the FBI Crime Lab (New York: The Free Press, 1998) (citing rampant falsifications, with whistleblowers punished, and the corrupt ones, promoted)

Lieberman, Jethro K., How The Government Breaks the Law (New York: Stein and Day, 1972) (he has many examples of legislator, police, and judicial lawlessness)

Jurors allegedly threatened in corruption case.....

Slobogin, Christopher, "Testilying: Police Perjury and What To Do About It," 67 U. Colo. L. Rev. 1037 (Fall 1996) ("Police, like people generally, lie in all sorts of contexts for all sorts of reasons. This article has focused on police lying designed to convict individuals the police think are guilty. Strong measures are needed to reduce the powerful incentives to practice such testilying and the reluctance of prosecutors and judges to do anything about it.")

Vipperman, Franklin D., The Deal Makers; The Cesspool; and Hell Hole (Vipperman at Las Vegas Tribune] covers police, judges, and prosecutors framing of innocent people, railroading them into prison, while defense attorneys aid, abet, and cover up. Goal: for all to benefit politically and monetarily)

Woodward, Bob, VEIL: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987 (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1987) (bribery does not take much money, "a comparatively small amount of money could" suffice, p 397. Concern about "anticorruption" action was deemed an obsession, making the person so concerned "a big pain in the ass for the [Reagan] administration," p 339. A Reaganite U.S. Attorney handling Operation Greylord, Dan K. Webb, not surprisingly was later retained by the tobacco lobby, promoting the underlying basis (tobacco-crime link) of the bribery process he had purported to oppose! despite the (tobacco link to drugs and thus to terrorism, supra.)

Ashman, Charles R., The Finest Judges Money Can Buy, And Other Forms of Judicial Pollution (Los Angeles: Nash Publishing, 1973) (that constitutional scholar provides 74 documented cases of corruption, including via bribes, "loans" and prostitutes. Those are the ones who were caught.)
