From FB: New film exposes civil rights violations in Guardianship


New Film Exposes Nationwide Abuses of Seniors and People With Disabilities, Calls for Reforms in Guardianships

“Pursuit of Justice” is a film (36 minutes) by Greg Byers which tracks the advocacy of civil rights attorney Thomas F. Coleman, clinical psychologist Nora J. Baladerian, and a growing network of activists as they travel the country promoting reforms in adult guardianship proceedings involving seniors and adults with various disabilities. The documentary is sponsoredby Spectrum Institute.

Like the recent Oscar-nominated film “Edith+Eddie”, “Pursuit of Justice”shows how guardianships can be manipulated to abuse the rights of vulnerable adults. While “Edith+Eddie” involves an interracial couple in their nineties, “Pursuit of Justice” focuses on adults of various ages who have different types of disabilities.

Stephen and Greg are autistic men in their twenties. Mickey, in his thirties, had an intellectual disability. Kay, in her forties, has Down syndrome. Michael, an articulate young adult in his late teens, has cerebral palsy. David, a former NPR news editor was 59 when the onset of an illness devastated his mobility and impaired his ability to communicate.

There are currently more than 1.5 million adults in the United States who are in court-ordered guardianships or conservatorships. Tens of thousands of new cases are filed each year. In these proceedings, judges take away the rights of adults to make basic life decisions where to live or work, control over finances, medical choices, whether to marry or have sex, who to socialize with, etc.

Each state uses its own rules in guardianship cases rules which often deny meaningful access to justice to the adults whose fundamental rights are placed at risk in these proceedings.

“Pursuit of Justice” offers a path for significant reform by promoting federal oversight of these state-operated judicial proceedings. Without voluntary changes by the states, it will require effective enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act by the U.S. Dept. of Justice to transform the status quo of unjust assembly-line practices into ADA-compliant proceedings that provide true access to justice.

“Pursuit of Justice” was released on March 1, 2018 just days before the film “Edith+Eddie” was considered for an Oscar at the Academy Awards. “Edith+Eddie” tells the story of an elderly couple who fell in love in their final years only to be torn apart through an abusive guardianship proceeding initiated by an intruding relative.

“Edith+Eddie” touches the hearts of viewers, leaving them wondering how such an injustice could occur. Although this masterfully produced and artfully directed film forcefully introduces viewers to a specific instance of oppression, the film’s audiences are left unaware that similar injustices are occurring every day in America and are ruining the lives of scores of adults of all ages, incomes, and political affiliations.

In addition to giving examples of injustices perpetrated on adults all along the age spectrum, “Pursuit of Justice” offers hope that sustained and creative advocacy will eventually cause systemic reforms to the judicial systems in all 50 states.

The combined impact of the films “Edith+Eddie” and “Pursuit of Justice” could make 2018 a watershed year for guardianship reform. These documentaries have just the right ingredients to become the impetus for significant and lasting political and legal reforms.

From KKD–What is testi-lying? Apparently the police know all about this term–you take the truth and stretch it out and out and out, until the truth is lightyears away.

From  Joanne:
Now you would think that with all the surveillance cameras, cell phones, dash board cams, body dams, the incidence of anyone lying would be practically nil.
Apparently not for the police.  Now studies show that psychopaths are drawn to jobs like police, judge, lawyer and we should be testing all those individuals first with a PET brain scan, but apparently no one cares that our professions are packed with lying, cheating scum the tax payers support.
For a new great video and series on psychopathy, see this lady.  She explains in detail how these people infiltrate, take control and then eventually ruin an entire organization.
We see that with judges at the Daley center, with the ARDC.  Apparently I am told that the JIB contains the names of a number of individuals that have the same last names as many judges on the bench and that seems to explain the fact that while hundreds of valid complaints against judges are submitted per year, only a handful result in any discipline, let alone removal.
From Dr. Karen Horton on psychopaths, how to identify them:
From Ken Ditkowsky:
Perjury is not a crime anymore – it is routine.   adjustments in the truth to meet a scenario is commonplace.   The electoral advertisements are replete with outright lies!    The half truths published in the media along with the distortions are now legend.    Why should the Police and law enforcement get into the act!
Here in Chicago just before the last mayoral election a young man with a deep hue to his skin was shot 16 times by the a policeman.   An election was being held and the Mayor might lose the election if word of the shooting were to get out!   What happened:    The City council met and voted 5 million dollars of hush money to be paid to keep the atrocity secret until after the election.   All 50 Alderman voted to pay the bribe!   The mayor was elected and the Police Department was charged with a COVER UP!    Details of the ‘cover up’ by the MAYOR’S POLITICAL MACHINE were and are still being kept secret.    Mention this and Stromy something or other becomes the center of the conversation.

Subject: False testimony by the police in routine cases is so prevalent it’s known as “testilying.” Even when exposed, it rarely hurts careers.

Officer Nector Martinez took the witness stand in a Bronx courtroom on Oct. 10, 2017, and swore to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help him God.

There had been a shooting, Officer Martinez testified, and he wanted to search a nearby apartment for evidence. A woman stood in the doorway, carrying a laundry bag. Officer Martinez said she set the bag down “in the middle of the doorway” — directly in his path. “I picked it up to move it out of the way so we could get in.”

The laundry bag felt heavy. When he put it down, he said, he heard a “clunk, a thud.”

What might be inside?

Officer Martinez tapped the bag with his foot and felt something hard, he testified. He opened the bag, leading to the discovery of a Ruger 9-millimeter handgun and the arrest of the woman.

But a hallway surveillance camera captured the true story: There’s no laundry bag or gun in sight as Officer Martinez and other investigators question the woman in the doorway and then stride into the apartment. Inside, they did find a gun, but little to link it to the woman, Kimberly Thomas. Still, had the camera not captured the hallway scene, Officer Martinez’s testimony might well have sent her to prison.






When Ms. Thomas’s lawyer sought to play the video in court, prosecutors in the Bronx dropped the case. Then the court sealed the case file, hiding from view a problem so old and persistent that the criminal justice system sometimes responds with little more than a shrug: false testimony by the police.

  • New York Detective Charged with Faking Lineup Results FEB. 27, 2018

  • He Excelled as a Detective, Until Prosecutors Stopped Believing Him  OCT. 10, 2017

“Behind closed doors, we call it testilying,” a New York City police officer, Pedro Serrano, said in a recent interview, echoing a word that officers coined at least 25 years ago. “You take the truth and stretch it out a little bit.”

An investigation by The New York Times has found that on more than 25 occasions since January 2015, judges or prosecutors determined that a key aspect of a New York City police officer’s testimony was probably untrue. The Times identified these cases — many of which are sealed — through interviews with lawyers, police officers and current and former judges.

In these cases, officers have lied about the whereabouts of guns, putting them in suspects’ hands or waistbands when they were actually hidden out of sight. They have barged into apartments and conducted searches, only to testify otherwise later. Under oath, they have given firsthand accounts of crimes or arrests that they did not in fact witness. They have falsely claimed to have watched drug deals happen, only to later recant or be shown to have lied.

No detail, seemingly, is too minor to embellish. “Clenched fists” is how one Brooklyn officer described the hands of a man he claimed had angrily approached him and started screaming and yelling — an encounter that prosecutors later determined never occurred. Another officer, during a Bronx trial, accused a driver of recklessly crossing the double-yellow line — on a stretch of road that had no double-yellow line.

In many instances, the motive for lying was readily apparent: to skirt constitutional restrictions against unreasonable searches and stops. In other cases, the falsehoods appear aimed at convicting people — who may or may not have committed a crime — with trumped-up evidence.

In still others, the motive is not easy to discern. In October 2016, for example, a plainclothes Brooklyn officer gave a grand jury a first-person account of a gun arrest. Putting herself in the center of the action, the officer, Dornezia Agard, testified that as she approached a man to confront him for littering, he suddenly crouched behind a van, pulled from his waistband a dark object — later identified as a gun — and threw it on the ground.

“P.O. Agard testified that she heard a hard metal object hit the ground,” according to a letter the Brooklyn district attorney’s office wrote summarizing her testimony.

But prosecutors lost faith in her account in July 2017, after learning from other officers that she was not among the first officers on the scene. Officer Agard had arrived later as backup, according to the letter, which noted that the gun charges against the man were later dismissed. The prosecutors did not address why Officer Agard claimed to be a witness, or why the other officers present seem to have allowed her to process the arrest.

Police lying raises the likelihood that the innocent end up in jail — and that as juries and judges come to regard the police as less credible, or as cases are dismissed when the lies are discovered, the guilty will go free. Police falsehoods also impede judges’ efforts to enforce constitutional limits on police searches and seizures.

“We have 36,000 officers with law enforcement power, and there are a small handful of these cases every year,” said J. Peter Donald, a spokesman for the Police Department, the nation’s largest municipal force. “That doesn’t make any of these cases any less troubling. Our goal is always, always zero. One is too many, but we have taken significant steps to combat this issue.”

Shrouded, but Persistent

The 25 cases identified by The Times are almost certainly only a fraction of those in which officers have come under suspicion for lying in the past three years. That’s because a vast majority of cases end in plea deals before an officer is ever required to take the witness stand in open court, meaning the possibility that an officer lied is seldom aired in public. And in the rare cases when an officer does testify in court — and a judge finds the testimony suspicious, leading to the dismissal of the case — the proceedings are often sealed afterward.

Still, the cases identified by The Times reveal an entrenched perjury problem several decades in the making that shows little sign of fading.

So far in 2018, a Queens detective has been convicted of lying in a drug case and a Brooklyn detective has been arrested amid accusations that he fabricated the results of a photo lineup. These cases returned the phenomenon of police lying to the public eye, leaving police officials to defend the integrity of honest officers.

Kevin Richardson, the Police Department’s top internal prosecutor, said he believed so-called testilying was nearing its end. “I think it’s a problem that’s very much largely on its way out,” he said.

Indeed, it’s tempting to think about police lying as a bygone of past eras: a form of misconduct that ran unchecked as soaring street violence left the police overwhelmed during the 1980s and early 1990s and that re-emerged as police embraced stop-and-frisk tactics and covered up constitutional violations with lies.

But false testimony by the police persists even as crime has drastically receded across the city and as the Police Department has renounced the excesses of the stop-and-frisk years.

Some policing experts anticipate that the ubiquity of cameras — whether on cellphones, affixed to buildings or worn by officers — will greatly reduce police lying. For the moment, however, video seems more capable of exposing lies than vanquishing them.

Memory and Manipulation

In two recent cases, The Times found, officers appear to have given false accounts about witness identifications. These cases are particularly troubling because erroneous identifications by witnesses have been a leading cause of wrongful convictions.

After a 2016 mugging near a Brooklyn subway station, the police arrested a group of four people, one of whom was found to be in possession of the victim’s wallet. In preparing the case, prosecutors sought to pin down a few basic facts. Had the police brought the victim, who was punched and had his wallet taken, to positively identify the four suspects after they were taken into custody? If so, what had the victim said?

Getting a straight answer from the arresting officer, Chedanan Naurang, proved nearly impossible. It had been Officer Naurang’s quick thinking that had made the arrest possible: Having lost the suspects at one subway station, he followed a hunch and drove one stop down the line, where he caught up with the four men after they got off the train.

But certain details Officer Naurang gave prosecutors kept shifting over the next year, according to a February 2017 letter that prosecutors wrote in which they summarized his fluid story.

Officer Naurang said at one point that the identification had occurred inside a police station when the victim passed by the holding cells, saw the men and confirmed their involvement in the crime.

A few weeks later, he backtracked. No, the victim had actually never gotten to see the suspects at the police station, Officer Naurang explained. Instead, the victim had gotten a chance to view them on the street, shortly after their arrest. That’s when the victim got out of the police vehicle in which he had been waiting, Officer Naurang said, and pointed to one of the four men, identifying him as an attacker.

This version of events, however, was at odds with the recollection of the police officer who had driven the victim to the scene of the arrest. That officer, Christopher McDonald, told prosecutors that the victim had remained in the back seat while viewing the four suspects. And Officer McDonald said that the victim couldn’t say whether they were his assailants. He thought he recognized their clothing, but wasn’t sure.

Because of Officer Naurang’s changing story, prosecutors dropped the case against the men as part of a deal in which all four pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a second mugging they were accused of the same night.

Another case in which the police gave false information about a witness identification came after a carjacking in Brooklyn in 2015. In that case, the police began to focus on two suspects based on an anonymous tip and a fingerprint. A detective, Michael Foder, testified that he had then prepared two photo lineups — one for each suspect.

Each consisted of the suspect’s photograph printed on a sheet of paper, alongside the photos of “fillers” — people of vaguely similar appearance with no connection to the crime. The hope was that the victim, a livery cabdriver, might recognize the suspect’s photo and pick him out — an outcome that prosecutors regard as a strong indicator of a suspect’s guilt.

That’s what happened, Detective Foder testified, when the victim came to the precinct to view the photo lineup for one suspect in November 2015 and returned in February 2016 to view one for the second suspect.

But the photo lineups that Detective Foder had prepared — and were submitted as evidence in federal court — were fabrications. It was a federal prosecutor who first realized that many of the photos used in the lineups were not yet available at the time Detective Foder claimed to have shown them to the victim. The reason? The photos of some of the fillers had yet to be taken.

The lineup that was said to be from November 2015 included filler photographs that were not taken until December. And the one he claimed to have administered in February featured photos that were taken in March.

Last month, Detective Foder was indicted on federal perjury charges. The indictment accuses him of lying to “conceal the fact that he had falsified documentation” related to the photo lineups. Detective Foder’s lawyer entered a plea of not guilty on the detective’s behalf.


A prosecutor discovered that many of the photos in the array Detective Foder said he had shown the victim Feb. 14, 2016, were not even taken until after that date.

Justifying a Search

Detective Foder’s actions appear to be aimed at tilting the scales toward guilt.

But more often, The Times found, false statements by the police seem intended to hide illegal searches and seizures, such as questionable car stops or entries into apartments that result in officers finding guns or drugs. If the truth were to emerge that the case began with an illegal police search, the evidence would quite likely be thrown out and the case dismissed.

Blue Lies

A series of stories examining the entrenched culture of ‘testilying’ in the New York Police Department.

    The story that Christopher Thomas, a plainclothes police officer, told a grand jury in December 2014 sounded plausible enough. As he approached a parked car with a flashlight in hand, he said, he saw a man in the driver’s seat pull a firearm out of his waistband and stick it between the car’s center console and the front seat. The driver was indicted on gun-possession charges.

    But by July 2015, as video of the encounter was about to emerge, Officer Thomas started backtracking. In conversations with the assistant district attorney on the case, Officer Thomas acknowledged that he had not seen the driver pull the gun from his waistband. In fact, he said, he had never seen the driver with his hand on the gun.

    “He stated to the A.D.A. that he did not know why he had testified to those facts before the grand jury,” according to an email prosecutors later sent to a defense lawyer. This email, as well as several similar letters that prosecutors sent in other cases, were provided to The Times by Cynthia Conti-Cook, a Legal Aid Society lawyer who has been compiling a database of police misconduct allegations.

    The video undermined Officer Thomas’s original claim of having seen the gun at the outset. It shows Officer Thomas and his partner approach the car and shine their flashlights inside. Their demeanor on the video suggests that they had seen nothing so far to cause alarm. One of the two officers — either Officer Thomas or his partner — is so unconcerned that he bends down for about seven seconds, and appears to tie his shoe.

    Continue reading the main story

    Continue reading the main story

    Brooklyn prosecutors dismissed the gun case and, according to the prosecutors’ email, informed the Police Department’s Internal Affairs Bureau about the problems with Officer Thomas’s account. An internal police disciplinary process led to Officer Thomas losing 30 vacation days and being placed on dismissal probation for a year, according to a person familiar with the case.

    He is now a sergeant in a narcotics unit.

    Officer Thomas is not the only officer to have tried to withdraw earlier testimony as soon as video of an encounter emerged, or was about to.

    “I misspoke when I was in grand jury,” Sean Kinane, an officer with the 52nd Precinct in the Bronx, testified in federal court in 2016. That was all the explanation he gave, or was asked to give, for why he was recanting his earlier testimony about witnessing what appeared to be narcotics transactions in the moments before he stopped a heroin dealer in the street.

    That claim, if true, would have given the police justification to stop the man, who was discovered to be carrying 153 glassine envelopes of heroin and eight bags of crack cocaine. But after the drug dealer managed to get a video recording of the encounter, Officer Kinane’s story changed. He had misspoken.

    Reached by telephone for comment, Detective Kinane — he was promoted in 2017 — hung up.

    ‘No Fear of Being Caught’

    Many police officials and experts express optimism that the prevalence of cameras will reduce police lying. As officers begin to accept that digital evidence of an encounter will emerge, lying will be perceived as too risky — or so the thinking goes.

    “Basically it’s harder for a cop to lie today,” the Police Department’s top legal official, Lawrence Byrne, said last year at a New York City Bar Association event, noting that there were millions of cellphones on the streets of New York, each with a camera. “There is virtually no enforcement encounter where there isn’t immediate video of what the officers are doing.”

    As more police encounters are recorded — whether on the cellphones of bystanders or the body-worn cameras of officers — false police testimony is being exposed in cases where the officer’s word might once have carried the day. That is true for run-of-the-mill drug cases as well as for police shootings so notorious that they are seared into the national consciousness.

    Yet interviews with officers suggest the prevalence of cameras alone won’t end police lying. That’s because even with cameras present, some officers still figure — with good reason — that a lie is unlikely to be exposed. Because plea deals are a typical outcome, it’s rare for a case to develop to the point where the defendant can question an officer’s version of events at a hearing.

    “There’s no fear of being caught,” said one Brooklyn officer who has been on the force for roughly a decade. “You’re not going to go to trial and nobody is going to be cross-examined.”

    The percentage of cases that progress to the point where an officer is cross-examined is tiny. In 2016, for instance, there were slightly more than 185 guilty pleas, dismissals or other non-trial outcomes for each criminal case in New York City that went to trial and reached a verdict. There were 1,460 trial verdicts in criminal cases that year, while 270,304 criminal cases were resolved without a trial.

    To be sure, officers are sometimes called to testify before trial at so-called suppression hearings in which the legality of police conduct is evaluated. But those are rare. In Manhattan, about 2.4 percent of felony criminal cases have a suppression hearing, according to data from the Manhattan district attorney’s office. The rate for non-felony cases is slightly more than one-tenth of 1 percent.

    Officer Pedro Serrano said he doesn’t engage in “testilying,” but he said it remains a problem in the New York City Police Department. “You take the truth and stretch it out a little bit.” CreditKarsten Moran for The New York Times

    A Crucial Court Decision

    Several officers, all working in the Bronx and Brooklyn, candidly described in interviews how the practice of lying runs like a fault line through precincts. “You’re either a ‘lie guy’ or you’re not,” said the Brooklyn officer. Speaking on condition of anonymity, he described how he avoided certain officers and units in his precinct based on his discomfort with the arrests they made.

    Earlier in his career, he said, a supervisor and a detective had each encouraged him to lie about the circumstances of drug arrests. Another time, he said, he had worked with an officer who, after discovering drugs while searching a suspect without cause, turned to the other officers present with a question — “How did we find this?” — and sought their help devising a false story.

    Countless police officers have struggled with that question — “How did we find this?” — ever since 1961, when the Supreme Court ruled, in Mapp v. Ohio, that state judges must throw out evidence from illegal searches and seizures. Before this ruling, New York City officers could stop someone they thought might be dealing or using drugs, search their pockets and clothing, describe the encounter truthfully, and not worry that a court would throw out the drugs that they had discovered, even though the stop and search had been, strictly speaking, illegal. That changed with the Mapp decision, which greatly expanded the reach of the Fourth Amendment.

    Immediately after the Mapp case, police officers saw many narcotics cases be dismissed. Then they made what one judge called “the great discovery.” If they testified that the suspect had dropped a bag of drugs on the ground as the police approached, courts would generally deem those arrests legal.

    Within a year of the Mapp decision, courts in New York City were seeing a marked increase in what became known as “dropsy” testimony — in some units “dropsy” cases increased more than 70 percent, according to one 1968 study.

    There was little reason to think drug users had grown more skittish. Rather, the influx of these cases was understood to be a sign that police officers were lying in a substantial number of cases. Ever since, courts in New York have been plagued with officers lying about how they came to discover that a suspect was carrying drugs or guns.

    By 1994, a commission appointed to investigate police corruption noted that lying to make cases stick was common enough for “testilying” to become a well-known portmanteau.

    The report by the Mollen Commission noted a few established patterns of falsehoods. Officers who illegally searched a car might later say they discovered contraband in “plain view.” Or an officer who found a gun or drugs in someone’s clothing during an illegal search might falsely claim to have seen “a bulge in the person’s pocket.”

    Just like the dropsy testimony a few decades earlier, these stories of “plain view” and “suspicious bulges” became scripts that many police officers stuck to. They were rarely challenged, not even as officers in New York City began repeating them tens and then hundreds of thousands of times as police stops of mainly black and Latino men skyrocketed during the years Michael R. Bloomberg was mayor.

    Embellished Narratives

    In recent years, the number of times police stopped and frisked pedestrians has declined precipitously. But certain plainclothes units, such as the so-called anti-crime teams, still engage in an aggressive style of policing that relies heavily on stop-and-frisk tactics. These teams make a disproportionate number of gun arrests, but they are also responsible for a substantial number of dubious stops of pedestrians and drivers, police officers and legal experts said in interviews.

    Several uniformed patrol officers said they have long suspected that the track record of plainclothes anti-crime teams for making weapons and drug arrests was bolstered by illegal searches and a tolerance for lying about them.

    These officers described a familiar scene: a group of black men ordered out of a vehicle for little reason and made to sit on the curb or lean against the bumper, as officers search the vehicle for guns and drugs.

    “Certain car stops, certain cops will say there is odor of marijuana. And when I get to the scene, I immediately don’t smell anything,” said Officer Serrano, one of the few officers interviewed who was willing to speak on the record. “I can’t tell you what you smelled, but it’s obvious to me there is no smell of marijuana.”

    Mr. Serrano’s testimony about a secret station-house recording he made was crucial evidence in a landmark stop-and-frisk trial in 2013. He and nearly a dozen other current and former officers are suing the Police Department over what they describe as arrest quotas.

    “It’s the anti-crime teams, the plainclothes officers, everyone knows they will violate the law, get what they want and then write it to fit the narrative,” said Edwin Raymond, a police sergeant who is also a plaintiff in the arrest-quota case. “The narratives will be embellished to fit the parameters of probable cause, if need be.”

    ‘A Surreal Journey’

    To be sure, there are other motives for lying, other than to cover up illegal searches.

    Some police officers have said they faced pressure from commanders to write more tickets or make more arrests. A decade ago, narcotics detectives were found to have falsely accused people of dealing drugs in order to meet arrest quotas.

    And there is pressure to solve — or at least close — cases. That may have motivated Officer Martinez’s gun-in-the-laundry-bag-in-the-doorway story.

    What appears to have actually happened is that Officer Martinez and other officers searched inside the apartment for evidence from a nearby shooting. They had good reason to focus on that apartment. The victim, after being shot, had rushed there, along with others. Crime-scene photos taken by the department’s Evidence Collection Team suggest that a gun was found inside the apartment, in or near a laundry bag on the floor.

    But whose gun was it? That was not clear. A number of people had been in the apartment in the preceding hours. And Ms. Thomas, who lived more than a mile away and arrived about an hour after the shooting, was one of the few people there when Officer Martinez showed up.

    There is little, if any, evidence tying Ms. Thomas to the gun other than Officer Martinez’s false testimony that placed her in the doorway with the laundry bag in her arms. Prosecutors acknowledged that DNA testing indicates that Ms. Thomas did not handle the gun. Moreover, court papers that prosecutors filed after the case fell apart noted that the police appear to have focused on Ms. Thomas while ignoring other potential suspects. Several other people had entered the apartment shortly before Ms. Thomas — “none of whom are questioned by the police,” the prosecutors’ papers noted.

    As for Officer Martinez’s false story of the laundry bag in the doorway, the prosecution’s legal papers noted only that “there are clear inconsistencies” between Officer Martinez’s “recollection of events and the video.”

    “At no time in this video is there a laundry bag in the defendant’s hands,” the prosecution’s legal papers noted. “Neither is there a bag in the doorway of the apartment, and at no time is the arresting officer observed moving a bag before entering the apartment.”

    By the time prosecutors officially dropped the case in November 2017, Ms. Thomas had already appeared in court 16 times, according to a tally of appearances kept by one of her lawyers, Alexandra Conlon, of the Bronx Defenders. On the last appearance, Ms. Thomas, 39, asked to address the court. “For 396 days I have been fighting for my life, my freedom and my sanity,” she said. “This has been such a surreal journey that I don’t wish on anyone.”

    Officer Martinez remains in good standing at the 41st Precinct. Shortly after the case was dismissed, he was promoted to detective and given his gold shield. When a reporter tried to interview him in January about his testimony in the case, he declined to comment, saying, “That’s not something I can speak about directly with you.”

    From KKD: Void Judgments, Larkin perfidy, etc.

    I received an e-mail that I responded to with my comments in red.    I am forwarding the words and phrases as the problem is brought forward in a very straight forward manner, to wit:

    Mr. Ditkowsky: some legal passages concerning “void judgements”
              a.) “Any judge who does not comply with his oath of office to the Constitution 

    of the United States, wars against the Constitution and engages in violation of the 

    Supreme Law of the Land. If a judge does not fully comply with the Constitution, then

    his orders are void. In re Sawyer, 124 U.S. 200 (1888), he is without jurisdiction, and 

    he/ she has engaged in an act or acts of treason. U.S. v. Will 449 U.S. 200, 216, 101 

    S. Ct. 471, 66 EEd. 2d 392, 406 (1980); Cohens v. Virginia, 19 U.S. (6 Wheat) 264, 404, 

    5 L. Ed. 257 (1821).    I have no problem with the statement – but note a judge who acts ultra vires creats a voidable judgment at best – not a void judgment.
                   b.) Judgement is a “void judgement” if court has rendered judgement lacked 

    jurisdiction of the subject matter, or of the parties, or acted in a manner inconsistent 

    with due process. Klugh v. U.S., D.C.S.C., 610 F. Supp. 892, 901.  absolutely correct.

                   c.) A court lacks jurisdiction anytime it denies a citizen the Bill of Rights 

    or amendments, particularly Due Process 1308, (C.A. 10 (Colo.). 1994); VC.A. 10   Now we are getting into the area of distinctions.    If a judge acts badly, or exceeds his authority an Appellate Court usually reverses the action.    Here the action of the judge is subject to reversal and we can consider the judgment rendered voidable.    A voidable judgment is fully enforceable until reversed.      

    (Colo.), 1994).  “Spitzberg v Notaro – Judge Gerald Rosenberg void – There is a miscon-

    ception by some attorneys and judges that only a judge may declare an order void, but 

    this is not the law: (1) there is no statute nor case law that supports this position, and 

    (2) should there be any case law that allegedly supported this argument, it would be 

    directly contrary to the law established by the U.S. Supreme Court in Vallely v. Northern This is true but, self help is prohibited.   Thus if a judge enters an order that it is illegal to wear a red shirt, indeed that order is void.    If Law Enforcement desires to enforce the order, it is protected UNTIL the order is ruled by a Court having jurisdiction as void.     Ordinary citizens like you and me do not get to determine which orders are void, voidable, valid, or not applicable.   This is the function of the judicial system.      This is also the reason that CORRUPTION in the Courts is such a devastating crime. 

    Fire & Marine Ins. Co. 254 U.S. 348, 41 S. Ctr. 116 (1920) as well as other state courts, e.g.

    by the Illinois Supreme Court in People v Miller. Supra. 

                  d.) Per Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 1574, void 

    judgement is defined as “one which has no legal effect, invalidity of which may be 

    asserted by any person whose rights are affected at any time and at any place directly 

    or collaterally.”

                  e.) Violation of due process results in “void judgements”: “A court lacks jurisdic-

    tion anytime it denies you the Bill of Rights or amendments, particularly Due Process” 

    1308 (C.A. 10 (Colo.), 1994); V.T.A., Inc. v. Airco, Inc., 597 F. 2d 220, 221 (1979).  A judge-

    ment reached without due process of the law is without jurisdiction and thus void. See above:     I have no quarrel with these definitions – my quarrel is with the ‘lay’ interpretation  by some that by their determination that a judgment is void – it is.     In fact it is NOT.    You may feel that your CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS have been violated, but only a Court having jurisdiction to make that determination has the authority to determine that facts.

    Bass v. Hoagland, 172 F. 2d 205, 209 (1949). Any motion for relief from a void judgement 

    is timely reguardless of when it is filed. V.T.A., Inc., supra@ 224 (footnote no. 9). If a 

    judgement is  void, it is a nullity from the outset and any Civ. R60 (B) motion is there-

    fore filed within a reasonable time. Omer v. Shala, supra@1308 The Words that you should focus upon MOTION FOR RELIEF.    A motion that refers to a voidable judgment has to be brought during term time or the statutory time (2 years) and must meet the criterion of GOOD FAITH and due diligence.     This is a very important distinction.

                   f.) In my cases there was bias against a pro se litigant, which has become an

    epidemic in American courts, where lawyers become judges who then protect the 

    business of lawyers (purportedly illegal in the court system). Justice is not needed to

    be purchased according to the law and was written to be”of the people, by the people

    and for the people; “we the people”. Yet it has been reported by Dr. Richard Cordero, Esq,

    Phd University of Cambridge England, MBA University of Michigan Business School and 

    D.E.A. La Sorbonne Paris, who has taken up the cause of pro se litigants, through his 

    investigation that over 97% of pro se litigant cases are being illegally dismissed by courts;

    and as such said rulings are “void judgments”.   Bias does not create either a void or voidable judgment.   Neither does a judgment entered by a judge who has been ‘wired!’       Such is indeed a violation of civil rights, but if you do not speak up and follow the procedure for addressing the problem (or cannot prove the bias) a valid judgment can be rendered against you.     You also can waive the bias.     (Merely proceeding in the case and allowing the judge to rule on issues can be deemed a waiver.

    Let me give you an example.     Lanre Amu, is a lawyer, a graduate engineer, etc.     He emigrated to America from Africa, became a citizen and a lawyer.    His skin color is very dark.     His clients also share his racial characteristics.
    It is no secret that Chicago politics is dirty as can be and the “fix” is not uncommon.    Amu ran into an obvious fix representing a client.    The Judge was on the Board of Directors of the defendant and her brother was one of the attorneys for the defendant.  Amu complained and the Judge ignored him.    He then complained to the Bar (IARDC) etc.   His clout was zero and as is quite common the JUDICIAL ELITE were in ‘cover-up’ mode.    
    As a believer in the Justice system he would not back down.    The IARDC commenced proceedings against him to induce him to ‘shut up!’     He refused and they sought and obtained an interim order suspending his law license.   He continued on and was awarded a 3 year suspension of his law license.    (During the interim a respected publication (Crain’s Chicago Business) independently investigated and found the exact facts that Amu complained of, to wit:  the Judge was on the Board of the defendant and her brother was an attorney for the defendant.     The JUDICIAL ELITE were unmoved and not only did Amu’s suspension stand, but, as a condition for reinstatement Mr. Larkin and the Illinois Supreme Court want Amu to admit that he lied and Judge and her brother were acting entirely proper.   He has refused.
    The judge, her brother, Mr. Larkin, the Justices of the Supreme Court of Illinois have all acted in the most reprehensible and unconstitutional manner possible –  however, this corrupt judges’ orders are NOT VOID – they are voidable and until our government acts this outrage will be the RULE OF CASE.
    Mr. Amu, yours truly, you et al are not given the authority OR the power to unilaterally  impose PROPRIETY on even the most obvious of miscreants.    
    Jerome Larkin exceeded his authority when under oath he filed FALSE PLEADINGS intended to deny both Amu and his clients EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW.     Indeed, Larkin should be disbarred and sent to jail for his perfidy – BUT ALL OF THAT IS A SEPARATE ISSUE.    We live in a Nation of Laws and from time to time we will find in authority people who should not be – and should be in jail, but, to accomplish the demands of DEMOCRACY we in particular have to be like Caesar’s wife and follow the letter of the law even if it is grossly a bitter pill to absorb.
    NB.  Amu’s remedy was Appeal and Petition LAW ENFORCEMENT to do their sworn duty.   Indeed, the remedy is inconvenient, uncertain, and time consuming – but it is the price we pay.       I also would like a more efficacious remedy. 
    No matter where you turn, the carnage continues.    The government and the great unwashed pay a 700% fraud surcharge for health care.   Hardly a day goes by and the scenario is repeated, to wit:  an elder incarcerated and removed from his/her family.  The elder’s estate is decimated = if there is any money in it, if not MEDICARE and government programs are used to extract every possible dollar.    
    As the time goes by and the theft of Medicare money (and the patient’s assets become more difficult the patient falls out of bed, has hit surgery, follow through illness and dies).   Fast cremation occurs and the elderly person being trafficking is swept under the web.    Anyone who complains has LEGAL PROBLEMS!
    The beat continues, to wit:
    On Thursday, March 8, 2018, 10:38:07 AM CST,  MTS wroge

    I have yet to decide what actions and against whom I will take in the

    debacle of a 76 year old I had been caring for recently. Baltimore City

    Social Services case worker Jorge Mitchell forced him into a Manor Care

    facility. When I questioned why none of the family or I as his them power

    of attorney had been contacted. said case worker stated that the facility

    was good and “if you screw this up for me you will never see Alejandro again”.


    It was his intent to see the elder apartment lease and be kept at Manor Care.

    My wife, two of the elder’s brother and I went to see the situation for

    ourselves. We found him not provided a simple tooth brush he had been

    requesting. He was having problems swallowing and thus eating, but if he

    did not finish his food in the allotted 1/2 hour, it was taken away and nothing else provided until the next meal


    The unit attempted to set up the elder’s girlfriend as power of attorney, but she contacted an attorney, who sent a legal letter stating she would not accept this. Next, I found case workers told the elder if he signed paperwork for them, he would immediately go home. He signed and then got ready to leave. After waiting hours, he was

    told he would never go home. I discovered the paperwork to be hospice
     and told all involved it was null and void as the elder never understood

    what he was tricked into signing.

     Then, I got a call that he had fallen out of
    bed and was sent to Union Memorial Hospital ER. There he stated to me he 
    had been walking to the bathroom, when he fell and hit his head. He claimed 
    he pressed the emergency call button for an hour but no one came to help
    him. I told the ER doctor about his swallowing problem and that he was losing
    weight. Said doctor stated they found nothing wrong from his fall and would
    give him medication for thrush, as that was most likely his swallowing prob-
     I stated that I wanted the elder transported to York Hospital for further
    care. Instead we were forced to drive him in our private car. At the York ER,
    the elder was found to have a broken hip. But after his hip surgery he began continued issues with infections and blood pressure drops. The hospital never worked to have him transported to see a liver specialist, though the doctors stated his main issue was liver problems. I questioned his bad gallbladder
    as possibly causing systemic poisoning of the elder as had occurred with his
    older brother, but this was not taken seriously until the day before his death.
    Doctors continually attempted to have me “pull the plug on him” in clear
    violation of his written medical directives and without the benefit of a liver
    specialist seeing him. The night before his death, a doctor stated he would
    be stopping any attempts at resuscitation, would not send him to the ICU
    and would withhold blood pressure medications.
     I stated that would be tantamount to murder, and told him not to take such actions. I call the hospital administration and was forced to leave a message for the head of
    the hospital. next, I requested who ever was currently in charge of the
    hospital that evening, but was forced to leave a message. So, I called the
    nurse handling his care, and stated for the record, to be placed also into
    his record, that all care must continue for him to maintain his life, or legal
    action would be taken against all those involved. Also, I asked her to relay
    this to his doctor. Yet about 15 hours later he was dead.
    Was a withholding of care involved? I contacted the coroner’s office to let them know about all the improper actions that precluded his death and requested a forensic
    autopsy. But the coroner’s office balked. I contacted the governor’s office,
    head of the health department, inspector general’s office, etc. I followed

    up with the district attorney and filed police reports as requested. In the

    end the coroner stated ‘no one would bully her into doing an autopsy”.

    The corner’s office had the body sent to a funeral home and cremated,

    destroying evidence. My question was why the coroner’s office was not

    doing random autopsy’s to check on death of elderly in the hospital, let

    alone checking on questionable deaths? their response was a ruling

    that this elder had died of “complications from hip surgery”, even though

    the treating doctor’s constantly stated that his main health issue was

    a bad liver – though no liver specialist ever saw, diagnosed, or treated

    him. The attitude when you are old, especially if found to have some
    chronic or terminal condition, you should just die – does not matter

    how much longer you might live if treated properly. But my response

    is no one has an expiration date stamped upon them. And if you think
    about it, we are all terminal from the time we are born. The elderly,
    and people in general, have become like everything else in our society
    today, throwaway; you do not fix it, there are too may more around,
    just throw it away, as it has no true value anymore.  Sorry, but I am a
    senior citizen, as are many friends, and I take umbrage to this attitude,
    as should everyone, as all will become old someday if they live long
    enough. I challenge everyone to speak out to protect the elderly!
    Mark Tomey Sr.
    COINCIDENTS ARE INTERESTING  – I DO NOT BELIEVE IN THEM, BUT THEY MAY EXIST.    If all these elderly people falling out of bed is a coincident maybe the miscreants would not resist so vigorously an HONEST INVESTIGATION!    Maybe the exposure of judicial corruption would not be akin to “yelling fire in a crowded theater!”       May be all the corruption would not be so obvious and maybe the elderly victims would not be cremated as soon as their eyes close!!!!
    The breach of trust is a TAXABLE EVENT!    If the establishment is so shocked by the concept of an HONEST INVESTIGATION maybe saving the State from bankruptcy would be a reasonable alternative.    As Medicare fraud is clearly present in every one of these cases and all the miscreants work together for a common purpose 18 USCA 371 is applicable.   Ergo, conspirators are JOINTLY AND SEVERALLY liable for damages and Federal and State Income Taxes.     Civil Tax collection carries no stigma!    Thus let me recommend that the State/Federal Bureaucrats intent  on engaging in the activites of ELDER CLEANSING (HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THE ELDERLY) pay Federal and State Income taxes due  (plus interest and penalties).
    Using the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585 as an example.    3 million dollars was stolen from the Estate and tens of thousands of dollars stolen from HEALTH CARE PROGRAMS including Medicare.     Every miscreant who participated has joint and several liability, including Mr. Jerome Larkin and each of the attorneys at the IARDC who participated in attempting to silence the Rule 8.3 reporting of myself and Ms. Denison.
    Ken Ditkowsky
    Those of us who disregard history are doomed to relive it.    The Elder Cleansing/human trafficking in the elderly is a subject that everyone desires to avoid and ignore.    It does not matter who you are or what you are – when you get old you are a target.    Your children may protest, you may protest, friends may protest, but the protest usually falls on deaf ears.   Occasionally an anomaly occurs and there is a write up in a mainstream publication.  (you of course remember the New Yorker Magazine article published last year!)   The sad commentary is that the amount of money that the ‘swamp’ obtains from the felonies of elder cleansing is so huge that even a call for an HONEST INVESTIGATION meets with extreme resistance.
    It is difficult to bring home to the ‘great unwashed’ that each of us is a potential target.     Not one of us is immune.     Unprincipled public officials who profit on the weakness of the potential targets today have the upper hand and are literally protected in every way as they prey on the elderly and the disabled.
    I’ve sent everyone in sight the information as to the MARY SYKES and ALICE GORE cases.   I referred every one to the blogs PROBATE SHARKS, MARYGSYKES, NASGA, AAAPG, ****.   The five GAO REPORTS to Congress that have been virtually ignored by our elected representatives have been referred to numerous times.    No one is interested UNTIL THEY ARE THE TARGET or ONE OF THEIR LOVED ONES is a target!   At that point in time it is too late!    A corrupt judge has authorized your (or your loved one’s) estate to be ravaged and a Jerome Larkin clone – if not Larkin himself- has made certain that no lawyer who wants to keep his law license is going to complain.    The corrupt judge and corrupt judicial officials will use the power of the courts to intimidate you or to deny you justice, and you will be labelled a NUT and ignored.
    Rest assured – the miscreants who ravage your estate ( or that of your loved one) will escape and enjoy the aforesaid estate fully – without even having to pay a dollar tax on the booty!    Your elected representatives when you write them will express extreme sympathy.     I wrote Senator Durbin (Illinois’ senior senator) and received his response – a copy of one of his stupid speeches on how he was saving social security  – so it too could be stolen.
    (Philip Esformes over a year ago was indicted for stealing a billion (nine zeros) dollars in Medicare Funds! – his trial has not been had as of today.   Seth Gillman in a medicare hospice scheme stole many many millions of dollars – when he was rumored to be co-operating with the FBI, it was quite obvious that the POLITICAL ELITE and the JUDICIAL ELITE in Illinois were troubled – -Jerome Larkin and the IARDC filed a petition before the Supreme Court of Illinois for an interim suspension of Gillman’s license.    (There was no danger to public created by his stealing of trust funds or medicare funds etc – Larkin the IARDC only acted when they feared he might expose them to an HONEST INVESTIGATION by Federal Authorities!)

    The problem that we face is corruption and hypocrisy.       The local media here in Chicago must think that we – the great unwashed – are stupid.     They accept millions – maybe billions of dollars – from political organizations that are totally irresponsible and promise in election years the world and deliver only corruption and hypocrisy.     The news is slanted in most cases to glorify the POLITICAL ELITE and to reward favorites and punish those who are not liked.


    We see multiple examples of the bias daily.   Today, the Chicago Tribune was lauding one of the candidates for Assessor and crying over the fact that she had been removed from the ballot by the election commission only to be reinstated when the political elite candidate appeared to be having trouble in the primary election.    The addition of the previously removed candidate splits the opposition vote and thus almost guarantees that the political elite candidate will be re-slated.      This is an old ploy but an effective one.      It is also being used in the Attorney General’s race for the nomination.     These two offices are essential to maintaining power.      


    The parallels are numerous.     The Human Trafficking (elder cleansing) scandal is an obvious metaphor.    The Circuit Court of Cook County, Probate Division can only be described as a cesspool.     Unfortunately, the problem is universal.    The Elderly, and elderly widows are too lucrative and easy target to be neglected.    Five Government Accounting Office reports to Congress have been virtually ignored and government sponsored, and funded organizations have used ever device possible to attempt to silence blogs such as MaryGSykes, Probate Sharks, NASGA, AAAPG, ******.      No ‘dirty trick’ is too ethically challenged or despicable not to be used in the quest to ‘cover up’ the criminal activity of the publicly funded organizations.


    In particular, here in Illinois the JoAnne Denison disciplinary proceeding stands out for its infamy and its reach for the nadir of ethical conduct.     The case started out as part of the cover-up of the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585.     One of the Guardian ad litem who was allegedly preying on the elderly matron/widow felt aggrieved that the blog Probate Sharks published a demand made by yours truly and Ms. Denison for an HONEST INVESTIGATION.        The demand for an HONEST INVESTIGATION was prompted by the fact that all the protections of the Act 755 ILCS 5/11a – 3 and 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 were ignored, including but not limited to service of a proper summons, prior notice to next of kin,  the holding a hearing as to the extent and nature of any disability (755 ILCS 5/11a – 3), application of the proper standards etc.      Heretofore, a public official – such as a guardian or conservator was considered a fiduciary and owed the ‘ward’ the highest standard of conduct.    Heretofore, forfeiture of property and liberty was strictly prohibited by both the Illinois Constitution and the United States Constitution.     


    The demand for an HONEST INVESTIGATION, even though ignored, was a call to LAW ENFORCEMENT to protect the Constitution of the United States of America, the Illinois Constitution of 1970, and the Rule of Law.     As there was three million dollars to be stolen sans Federal and State Tax enforcement, and millions in Federal Health Care money to steal the call for an HONEST INVESTIGATION was totally repugnant to the Establishment.      Attorney Denison not only refused to ‘back off’ from her demand for the political organization to comply with the demand that its members respect the rule of law and the Constitution, but, she published in her blog –www.marygSykes.com – instances of criminal corruption by sitting Judges.    Many of these Judges were acting in criminal concert promulgating the felonies of ELDER CLEANSING and HUMAN TRAFFICKING.       Ms. Denison’s exposure of the continued criminal conduct and ‘OPERATION GREYLORD’ activities was not appreciated and connoted by the Administrator of the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission as being akin to “yelling fire in a crowded theater.”   


    Mr. Larkin (the administrator) was not content with filing false pleadings under oath.     He made certain that he punished Attorney Denison and sullied her reputation and ability to practice law.     In so doing he himself violated the Law!     He engaged as an example an unlicensed ‘court reporter!’      One of the transcripts of proceedings was indeed interesting.    A judge (who presided over the Sykes case) admitted to telling a falsehood under oath during her direct examination according to Court watchers.     The official transcript was filed with the admission (elicited under cross examination) deleted.     The required standard of proof was modified from ‘clear and convincing’ to Jerome Larkin says it is true – to hell with the truth.


    Unfortunately, the Denison perfidy is not an anomaly, but, is common place and as the investigation continues – S.O.P.      Rule 8.3 compliance in HUMAN TRAFFICKING by people favored by the political elite is not tolerated and a lawyer who complies with Rule 8.3 is almost guaranteed an interruption of his/her law license.     ELDER CLEANSING is a major fund-raising strategy for the POLITICAL ELITE.      

    We – the great unwashed – will have no Democracy, no Republic, and no Freedom UNLESS we react and rebel.        The strategy of splitting our vote so that the machine candidate can be nominated or elected will be difficult to address – but, we must do so.     The outright campaign lies, and demonization of the opposition may be more difficult.      For instance, racism has become a catch word.    What is racism?     It certainly was not racism for Lanre Amu to have his license suspended for practicing law while black!    Indeed, Mr. Larkin’s perjury goes unpunished even though we (and Larkin) all know that CRAINS CHICAGO BUSINESS   make the very averment against Judge Egan that Amu did.    Larkin’s prevarication was rubber-stamped in the face of unequivocal evidence of Egan’s perfidy and ethically challenged behavior on the bench.    Hell – Egan did not even deny the misconduct!       Today, to obtain the reinstatement of his law license, the Illinois Supreme Court is demanding that Amu admit that he lied – even though everyone knows that he told the truth and Larkin was very frugal with the truth under oath.

     Of course, it was not racism in Illinois when Larkin’s legions denied admission to an icon of the Civil Rights movement.       This esteemed lady = who marched with DR. KING and who was recognized as one of the planners of the Selma March (Diane Nash) was denied entry to one of the kangaroo hearings in which Attorney Denison was being denied her civil rights.    (I personally was at the hearing and there was a vacant seat adjacent to me – I requested an apology for Ms. Nash from Mr. Larkin – no apology was ever given).

           It does not guaranty that I can kidnap Mary Sykes, drag her before a corrupt judge lacking jurisdiction and ethics and deprive Mary of her liberty, her property, and the fruits of her American citizenship.     (Amazing – but the Courts are protecting my whim (if I have sufficient political and judicial clout) to deprive others of due process, liberty and property)


    The government supports health care fraud and its 700% surcharge.     Philip Esformes was indicted in the US Court for the Southern District of Florida for stealing a billion dollars in Medicare Money.    Seth Gillam was convicted of a serious Medicare Fraud involving Hospice, stealing from trust funds etc.    These are not isolated cases – they are the norm and unfortunately both Gillman and Esformes are not the biggest players in this trillion dollar criminal enterprise.     Florida elderly are not the only targets.    Why then are prosecutions so rare?  It is respectfully suggested that the POLITICAL ELITE are so invested in the Elder Cleansing frauds and the money that they can steal from both the government and the victim, that they have created a protected cottage industry.


    It does not take a Philadelphia Lawyer to answer the query!      Prosecutions are rare because the criminals are heavily tied in with the ESTABLISHMENT.       In my Brewer case the canvass of the 50th Ward in Chicago revealed that my extremely qualified client received virtually NO VOTES from any of the nursing homes in the area.     It appeared that every resident voted for the incumbent alderman.     It appears that this was not an anomaly=  it appears representative of nursing home voting.      Let’s make this very clear – – a candidate running for public office can obtain enough votes from his/her relationship with the nursing home operator to swing the election either for him or against him.     Even lifetime voters for the candidate not favored by the nursing home operator will be seen to have voted for the candidate favored by the operator of the facility.   (Indeed – I am suggesting blatant vote fraud!)


    ELDER CLEANSING (HUMAN TRAFFICKING) is not a minor event – it is a cancer that could destroy the America they we know.        The persons engaged in the criminal conspiracy are well connected public servants.   In Germany during the 1930s, and in Soviet Russia during the Gulags human cleansing/trafficking was a NATIONAL POLICY.      Today in Southern Florida and in Cook County, Illinois it is so commonplace that it can be deemed public policy.     The fact that so many of the practitioners and their political co-conspirators get away with it (and the life savings of the elderly) with such impunity suggests that America is in deep trouble!        At the very least – it would be nice if the DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY had an agent or two wander into Mr. Jerome Larkin’s office and collect the FEDERAL INCOME TAXES due on the booty that Mr. Larkin protected for his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators!   

    In the HUMAN TRAFFICKING (ELDER CLEANSING ) SCANDAL we do not have a half dozen Congressional committees ferreting out the facts, but we do have scores of public officials who are engaged in the cover-up.
    The words – HONEST INVESTIGATION are deemed to be ETHICALLY CHALLENGED!   No wonder the ‘swamp’ is so upset by even the thought of such an event!   Honesty in government and enforcement of the Law might totally revolutionize both Federal and State government!     Imagine a politico who actually did the job that he/she was elected to fulfill.  Imagine a JUDGE who took his owe seriously!    (It could result in a serious drop in revenue for the Political parties and might ******)

    From Probate Sharks Blog: Hijacking a Fla. Estate for millions from Chicago

    Posted on July 28, 2016

    On the pages of the Probate Sharks blog is the following: Irving Faskowitz probate court case. Irving’s 2 million dollar estate was high jacked by Chicago and New York non-relatives who were also named Faskowitz. The real Faskowitz heirs never were informed of Irving’s death and never saw a penny.

    One of the biggest problem that exists today is the unequal enforcement of the law, or the enforcement of the law to protect particular interests.    There is no question that when a person is placed in a police vehicle while in custody, and emerges dead there is a problem that the community should be concerned with.   The prosecutor knew that the individual was not murdered and no intent crime could be proven; however, in the true spirit of an opportunist unethical member of the political elite five police officers were ‘over charged’ with crimes that could not sustained.
    The issue of whether or not criminal charges of some kind should have been brought is not relevant as the establishment was looking for a scapegoat.   It is this tactic that is destroying the basic institutions of America.   Special interests can routine ‘fix’ the process or the case and a large segment of the population screams to deaf ears the words: “foul!”
    A burr under the skin has been the Florida Irving Faskowitz case.    Briefly the facts are allegedly as follows:
    Irving Faskowitz died.   It just so happened that an infamous Chicago Lawyer had a maiden name that was very strongly similar; however, she was not related.   Exhibiting the criterion of conduct advocated by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and the Illinois Supreme Court and the conduct that they wish to foster, this lawyer filed documents claiming that she and a specific group of her relatations were heirs to the estate.    The claim was bogus on its face and so obscene that the Florida Attorney General rose out of her slumber and filed an objection.
    As Lawyers live by the proposition that a bad settlement is better than the best litigation, the case settled and the spurious claimants got 1/2 of the Estate.   Victims of the infamous Chicago lawyer heard about the Florida expedition and screams to everyone who would listen ‘foul’    The protector of the virtue of Illinois lawyers the IARDC apparently have a special relationship with this lawyer could not be bothered to investigate, but gave its stamp of approval on the fraud.   Further action by the Florida Attorney General was unthinkable to Florida officials.   I guess they were too absorbed in annulling the Smith marriage and silencing the heirs of Helen Stone.
    As the lawyer who filed the claim is an Illinois lawyer and was also believed to be culpable for the horrendous torture that Alice Gore was subjected to and to the quest for gold in her teeth the IARDC and the Illinois Supreme Court ratified their approval of the alleged theft and the complaining citizens were told to ‘stuff it!’
    This is our current state of affairs in the cottage industry of elder cleansing.    Mr. Larkin is not a card carrying Nazi.   Indeed, he most probably has not even accidentally rubbed elbows with one.   Indeed, I would suspect that he is even loved by some children and dogs, but, he accepted a job to do – i.e. police the legal profession and rid it of the dishonest lawyers who prey on Illinois citizens – including the elderly.    Someone along the way Mr. Larkin got mixed up and decided to rid the legal profession of the lawyers who would pursuant to Rule 8.3 and 18 USCA 4 speak up against corruption in the Court system.   Indeed, he felt it his duty to defend and coverup 18 UsCA 371 the confession of Judge Connors (at page 91 of her evidence deposition) that she was ‘wired.’   The confession of perjury in the JoAnne Denison hearing by Judge Stuart.   The Faskowitz theft and the hunt for gold in the mouth of Alice by lawyer *****.    ******.
    Elderly people are being elder cleansed, and then euthanized and corrupt courts, corrupt judges, corrupt lawyers, corrupt judicial officials and corrupt political figures are all actively engaged in the activity.   Our cause is just, but ignored.   Linking the cause to a great ***** Conspiracy is counter productive.   Judge **** sitting in Emmett County, Michigan is not involved in the Mary Sykes case directly, indirectly or in his dreams.   The WW2 Nazis who escaped from Germany in 1944/45 are all dead or nearly dead at this point in time.
    Ladies – all we have in these elder cleansing cases is garden variety avarice and local conspiracies by a group of like thinking miscreants to enrich themselves by stealing from grandma.    Judge **** in Florida has no role in whatever Judge **** in Illinois is doing or not doing.   The attempt to link their actions just destroys our credibility.

    The health care fraud surcharge of 700% is alive and well.  Corruption is alive and well in Illinois, Florida, *******.    It would effect you personally unless you do something to address it effectively.     In the F Estate even though the AG smelled a rat and tried to thwart the Fraud, the AG compromised the case and the miscreant lawyer escaped with a large sum of money totally free to taxes!     Of course the IDR ignored the Illinois taxes – the lawyer engaged in this criminal enterprise was a member of the POLITICAL ELITE and therefore was entitled to a ‘blind eye’ enforcement procedure.  Ditto for the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY!

    Only the great unwashed are concerned that Illinois is on the verge of Bankruptcy.  Indeed, the 21 trillion dollar deficit is chump change of the Swamp – we, the great unwashed and our children and grandchildren will figure it out.
    I had a horse a few years ago.   Every day I fed that horse a little less food — I was teaching the horse to not eat.     Just when I came close to success my horse died!      I still remember that when I wrote Senator Durbin for help in relation to the Elder Cleansing of Mary Sykes, he responded – he sent me a copy of a speech he gave detailing how her was saving social security.   (NB. the fact that Mary’s social security was also being stolen by the miscreants ******).  
    The time might be NOW or NEVER!     Any day you or I could wind up in an ESFORMES nursing home!    Philip Esformes was charged by the USA of stealing a billion dollars from MEDICARE.    How much was stolen from patients and their insurance companies?    How many Mary Sykes and Alice Gores are there out there?   
    NB. Concealed carry is NOT the answer or the solution – when they get you in a room, opioids are very effective!    A corrupt judge will appoint a conservator/guardian for you and enjoy being a zombie!   You will vote in every election as long as you are believed to be alive, but you will vote for people who are engaged in the 18 USCA371 conspiracy to deprive you of your liberty.

    As a start the government has to start firing some of the corrupt members of the swamp!   In Illinois, Florida and in General (including the Federal Government)  members of the POLITICAL ELITE AND JUDICIAL ELITE who breach their public duty should be terminated.    We cannot afford them!    Jerome Larkin as an example should be first made to pay the FEDERAL INCOME AND STATE INCOME TAXES due as the result of his open and notorious conspiracy with criminals who robbed and deprived ELDERLY PEOPLE of their liberty, property and human rights, and then be terminated.     The penalty for breach of the public trust should be strict application of the RULE OF LAW and very strict enforcement of the tax law.    We have to take the profit out of human trafficking.
