Stop The Torture of Elders NOW!

People that steal,bamboozle,abuse elders more often than not get off with a slap on the wrist!With judicial immunity for elder and elder financial abuse for family members,judges and attorneys who get state sanctioned protection for elder abuse.

There has been an explosion of women being held in prison and according to the Women's Prison Association 75% percent of all jailed women are mothers,most with two or more children.

Before incarceration, these women were far more likely than men to have been their children's primary caregiver. Today, or any day, hundreds of thousands of U.S. kids have mothers in prison. "The majority of women are imprisoned for non-violent, drug-related offenses-not crimes against their children," says Denise Johnston of the Center for Children of the Incarcerated in California.

We are filling our prisons to busting with mothers! Yet elder abusers walk! We torture our elders! Elders are being killed wholesale! Hardly a day goes by where stories of elder torture, murder,fleecing makes the rounds! Stories like these..

BELTON -Texas Oct 6 ,2009 A 38-year-old Temple woman accused of denying her 74-year-old mother medical treatment and starving her to death avoided a trial when she pleaded guilty to murder and received a 23-year sentence.

The plea agreement for Katrina Michelle Hoelscher was consummated Friday when prosecutor Nelson Barnes and defense attorney Michael White met in advance of Monday's trial date.

Barnes said both sides agreed that the details of the case were "horrific."

The case began in late January as a call about an elderly person dying at home. Four months later, after an investigation by the Temple Police Department that included an autopsy, it turned into a murder indictment.

The autopsy on Nell Lorine Hoelscher supported suspicions police had when responding to the call, Assistant District Attorney Paul McWilliams said in May. It indicated she died of malnourishment and medical neglect.

The two-paragraph indictment accused the younger Hoelscher of neglecting the needs of her mother, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease for several years and had moved in with her daughter after her condition worsened, Ms. Hockensmith said in May.


We demand to grow old with dignity, we demand respect, we are tired of a culture of throw away elders,politicians who don't care and we are mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore!
