Perhaps we should walk the streets of America, into the court houses, businesses, etc. conducting our daily lives with "like" comments on

I can think of a whole lot of words to descibe what happened in my family with proof to back it up.

In primitive Louisiana, guardianship is relatively rare. Our attorneys commonly bilk vulnerable clients using less formal tools such as the power-of-attorney. Here is an example:

Mr. Hammond represents the community of lawyers wishing to carve out a larger piece of elder loot pie for himself and his colleagues. Along the way, he has vilified the APS, throwing them under the bus (where they rightly belong) to justify the need for lawyers to intervene instead.

The classic ambush strategy of "divide et impera" ("divide and conquer") might be useful in pitting lawyers and APS against each other in a joint interview to produce a spectacular exchange of mutual recrimination. This is what they do to us, after all.

Our court system is set up to be adversarial. Lawyers create conflict. In taking care of elders who need care, I think there need be cooperation, not conflict.

If, as a last resort, a person must be deprived of all essential civil rights he should lose privacy rights too, so claims of "privacy" are not used to conceal conversion and embezzlement.

Very good point , this comment illustrate the hypocrisy of it all,they think nothing of negating an elders's civil rights when it's convenient for them to do so.
But when you want to investigate , then they hide behind a veil of secrecy and privacy rights!
