Calling for YOU to request an investigation.

While Ken and I are apparently in deep doo doo for asking our elected and non elected officials to just do their jobs (and I hope in doing so, we will be vindicated of our “horrible crimes” which sit squarely on top of our First Amendment rights of free speech), apparently you can go right to the US Department of Justice website and file a complaint if you know that a disable senior is being discriminated against.  That’s right, just go to and click on file a complaint.

Below is one that someone filed today on behalf of Mary Sykes and you can all use it as a format.  All the work is done for you and please thank Nancy, one of my faithful readers for doing that for us all.

When Mary found out what occurred she tried to unwind the transaction.
Mary first tired to obtain copies of the documents that she signed but the older daughter and the attorney refused her copies.
Thereupon Mary sought help from the civic authorities and she went to the Court to obtain an order of protection.
The daughter countered with an incompetency proceeding.

755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 –NOTICE REQUIRED No one is concerned there was no 14 day prior notice required by statute every order ended is void.  Mary was never properly served with a summons and complaint prior to hearing, she was not permitted to speak up in court and ask for an attorney of her choosing, numerous hand written notes, video taped and accessible on the web were ignored or disregarded in court.  Her sisters were not served 14 days advance notice of the time, date and place of hearing as required by the Illinois Probate Act in order for the court to attain jurisdiction.  Accordingly, Mary is living without her human rights, civil rights, choice of residence, choice of attorney (Ken Ditkowsky represented her and was her family attorney for years, she specifically asked for him, when he appeared in court, he was slapped with sanctions by the court–but these were later vacated by the Illinois Court of Appeals)

We believe that she lives under the constant threat of being placed in a nursing home to live in a pool of her own urine never to see the light of day again because nursing home residents are rarely allowed outside.
The younger daughter has not been allowed communicates with her mother for periods in excess of six months.   A younger sibling (of Mary’s age 80 plus) has been denied communication with her sister (Mary) for extremely long periods of time.  Before this, the siblings talked on the phone almost daily and visited monthly and at all holidays. Three years have gone by and no effort has been successful in obtaining Mary’s liberty rights, property rights, civil rights or human rights.
Retaliation , punishment, fines occurs if Any one questioning the Court for acting without jurisdiction and in concert with Farenga, Sterrn the GALS and the plenary guardian in intentionally denying senior citizen Mary Stern of her liberty, her property, civil and human rights.     Mary Sykes for three years has been in such condition!

Gold coins valued at approximately a million dollars (or more) have not been inventoried.  Cash that was in a mattress has not been inventoried (most likely $50,000 or more)

She’s living by force in a home and isolated from all.  She is drugged and denied assess to any person she trusts or loves in order to stop her from crying foul. She has been prevented from practicing her religion, attending civic activities, garden club, historical society, et al. Before she was kidnapped on June 9 2009 she lived a full and complete life and cooked, banked, and even marched in the local parades: she walked at least two mikes a day and cared for her own dog and now is told she never had a dog .
She had mini stokes years ago and more recently under Toerpes (the Plenary Guardian’s) care. So the court made her appear to be dementia the Altzheimers type by retaining one of their tied in physicians who rubber stamps every guardianship.  Video tape evidence posted on the internet AFTER her guardianization shows she is clearly thinking, knows what she wants and knows who she wants as her guardian (the other daughter who cared for her for years and is her proper POA).horizontal divider
