This exploitation is NOT done by family members or friends. It is perpetrated by professionals who operate under the protection of the BAR Association and facilitated by probate court judges. In less than 5% of the cases of exloitation is the involvement of family members. 95% of the time on average, it is by professional strangers to the victim and family.
As billions are stolen annually by predatory guardians and immoral attorney’s, our legislative representatives feign ignorance of the theft and exploitation. In a few cases, there appears to be some movement towards ending the exploitation…..at least by family members. The professional predators appear to be untouchable.
We will take call-ins after the first 1/2 hour. Calls must be limited to the discussion at hand.
Bill Scheidler, an activist at www.corruptwa.com says this,
Guardian abuse occurs because the “regulators”, and that includes the WA Supreme Court, ALLOW it to occur.
The GAO (The US Gov Accountability Office), in a state-wide study concluded in 12 of 20 cases, the courts failed to oversee guardians once they were appointed, allowing the abuse of vulnerable seniors and their assets to continue. GAO found that guardians stole or otherwise improperly obtained $5.4 million in assets from 158 incapacitated victims, many of whom were seniors.

Consider this language that is part of a lawyer’s statutory oath, RCW 2.48.210, which a lawyer swears by God that he, “will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed…” Yet it is the “legal establishment” that is raping, or is allowing the raping of the most “defenseless and oppressed” of their assets, their happiness and even their life.
How many people must be harmed, even killed, before citizens voice their anger with our legislators and the Justices of the Supreme court?
