Across the country an American Horror Story is unfolding as massive numbers of elderly individuals who have committed the heinous crime of [aging with assets], now find themselves in probate court and officially declared dead in the law by virtue of being declared an incompetent ward of the state. This is human trafficking sanctioned by not only the courts, but also by congresses, both state and federal who are well aware of these organized criminal activities, but who refused to acknowledge or act to defend the elderly from these predators.
This fictional declaration of death via probate court, is a careful construct patterned after the organized crime rings operating in family courts. In one court we abduct, sell and trade minor children, and in the other we abduct, sell and exploit the lives and finances of the elderly. Everyone involved, from the so-called protection agencies, judges, commercial predatory guardians, medical providers, hospitals, nursing homes and walls of unethical and immoral attorneys, line up to take a piece of the pie.
The pie can also be comprised of the monetary value in the Medicare/Medicaid system where targeted victims can be worth a million or more in inflated medical charges, padded medical billing, padded bills for doctors, insurance payments, thefts of social security benefits, VA benefits and whatever else may be out there in the way of grants, funding and subsidy.
Many times the “pie” can be comprised of liquid assets, stocks, bonds, property, valuable art and jewelry…..all of which can disappear into the accounts and pockets of the predators just as fast as the facilitating probate judge can declare the individual not only dead in the law, but incompetent as well.
Guardian and ward: legal definition
A guardian must take inventory and collect all the assets of the ward. Where permitted by law, title is taken in the ward’s name. Otherwise, the guardian owns the property “as guardian” for the ward, which indicates that the guardian has the legal right to hold or sell the property but must not use it for his or her personal benefit. The guardian must determine the value of the property and file a list of assets and their estimated value with the court. The guardian must collect the assets promptly, and is liable to the ward’s estate for any loss incurred owing to a failure to act promptly. (emphasis added)
Unfortunately, for those guardianized, the legal right to hold or sell property now claimed by the predatory commercial guardian, is used to benefit the predator personally. Promptness as described in the legal definitions, is taken to new heights as predatory commercial guardians move at the speed of light to begin re-titling of property, seizure of accounts, transferring of personal funds, liquidation of any remaining assets; all of it ending up in the accounts or in the name of the predator, an attorney and/or a working partner to whom the properties are sold for pennies on the dollar.
This system of legalized grand larceny conducted by state agencies, attorneys, predator guardians, corrupt probate judges and other agencies and actors, is condoned and covered up by higher court judges and those phony judicial oversight boards that exist in every situation.

Staffing, whether insufficient in labor force or hours of care provided, was a common thread among 96% of states cited for poor nursing home care, according to a first-ever state-by-state analysis.
Only seven states provided more than one hour of professional nursing care per resident per day, notes Families for Better Care’s Nursing Home Report Cards.
With the goal of applauding states that provide good quality care, while motivating improvement for those that score poorly, Families for Better Care’s survey also ranked the top states for nursing home care as well as those posting “failing grades.”
On the other end of the spectrum, the South accounted for much of the survey’s lower scoring states for nursing home care, with Texas (51), Louisiana (50), Indiana (49), Oklahoma (48) and Missouri (47).
Adequacy of staffing played a key role in determining state rankings, noted Brian Lee, Families for Better Care’s executive director.
“A distinctive trend differentiated the good states from the bad states,” he said. “States whose nursing homes staffed at higher levels ranked far better than those with fewer staffing hours.”
The analysis, which scored, ranked and graded states on eight different federal quality measures—ranging from the percentage of facilities with severe deficiencies to the number of hours provided by caregivers per resident—found that states whose nursing homes employed an abundance of professional nurses and frontline caregivers translated to higher quality scores.
Ranking states according to this criteria, three states (Alaska, Hawaii and Maine) scored a “superior” grade in all staffing measures—each ranking among the nation’s best nursing home states.
Conversely, the four states receiving below average grades overall for failing staffing measures were Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee and Texas.
“The data reflect what academicians, residents, families, and ombudsmen have heralded for years; the higher the staffing levels, the better the care,” Lee said.
Widespread abuse and neglect was another area of concern recorded in Families for Better Care’s analysis, as 1 in 5 nursing homes abused, neglected, or mistreated residents in almost half of all states.

The Dix Hills father who has been missing since June was last seen wearing a grey polo at a West Babylon scrap yard, according to new information posted on a Facebook page dedicated to finding 46-year-old Robert Mayer.
Mayer left for work on June 14 for his job as an electrician in Brooklyn, but he never made it back home. Police were last able to track Mayer’s cell phone signal around Route 110 in Huntington, while he was on his way home around 1:45 p.m.
Following an investigation, it’s now been revealed that Mayer, a father of two, was last seen at Arrow Scrap Yard in West Babylon a 2:15 p.m. on June 14. His cell phone signal was either turned off or went dead a half hour later.
Mayer never returned home and his wife, Ida, reported him missing at 1 a.m. the next morning. Mayer’s red 2004 Pontiac was found at the Deer Park train station by friends of his wife at 8:30 p.m. on June 15.
Ida Mayer has told Patch that she didn’t know how his car got there, since Mayer never took the train for work because he worried about leaving his car unattended at the station.
Police have still maintained that they do not believe foul play is involved in Mayer’s disappearance. Mayer’s wife is now offering a reward for any information that leads to locating Mayer and/or information on anyone involved in his disappearance.
