BILLION $? _OF THE GUARDIANSHIP"TAKINGS"

The Billion Dollar Question Rolando Larraz Tribune Media Group The Office of Public Guardian was run by the infamous Mr. Jared Shafer, for more than thirty years, which resulted in the premature deaths of tens of thousands of elderly in Las Vegans and their estates "raped." The Office of Public Guardian was started in 1970, created out of thin air, and is the most powerful state agency because of the vast amounts of money that is basically stolen on a daily basis.

Mr. Shafer was forced to resign as Public Administer and not to run again for the Public Administrator, under a very rare circumstance. He held two Offices unlawfully. The Law states that no one can hold two offices at once, but he did, and that alone, should tell you something about what is going on here.

This Office handles far more money (power) than any other Office, since it handles great numbers of estates in the millions and billions of dollars. This is a report highly critical of the "Public Guardian's Office" and current Public Guardian, Ms. Kathleen Buchanan. In this critical article and review of this office, an attempt to answer the question of how all this happens, and where the missing Billions of Dollars may be? It is "just scratching the surface of the ice berg?"

Deep in the new reinforced fortress of bullet proof glass, electric doors and of course, cameras, it is a position of "autonomy," playing every trick in the book, a perfect place for a perfect criminal to be in, for the perfect crime.

Is Ms. Buchanan, doing business as usual? Mr. Shafer is secretly still ruling the roust. In this state there are no prerequisites for entering the Guardianship Administrative business: no special training, no licensing process, no enforceable professional standards and of course no ethics for the ethicly challenged. This "Service" is kept under "one roof," by this small bold group who "lays low" as much as possible?

It is a fast and steady "growing business." Generally, when there is no overarching watching federal agency as watchdogs, and it is usually a good indicator of corruption. The elderly are often "prime targets" because they are more trusting, and as such, more susceptible to modern scams. Many experts consider this abuse rampant. The Ward's "needs" are now a court's "Order," with the victim paying their attorneys thousands of dollars of their own money to be used against themselves.

Misrepresentation is suspost to be prohibited! You walk into a "one way street" courtroom, and converse with a "judge" only to be immediately declared "incompetent," which is a pure and utter "death sentence." It is really hard to sue when you are dead! They know that. It is difficult to document the patterns of neglect, the mistakes in medication and other deficiencies like over-medication and mis-prescribing of the doctors and so forth, because virtually all the victims die within months. Consequently, no one knows exactly how widespread the problem really is. Where are the homicide detectives,... can it be that, maybe they want to down grade the true number of murders in this "tourist city," by simply not investigation them? Homicide is never there, only a recording, if you do not believe me, try calling for your self. The feds do nothing, because they would then have to admit that, they knew that it has been going on for more than thirty years now, and their involvement has also resulted in "Conspiracy to Commit Murder," in the premature deaths of tens of thousands, here in LAS VEGAS.

In "family court," "un-substancuated accusations" pass as "claims," which are submitted by trained professional attorneys based solely on "inadmissable evidence," and of course, without any witnesses and certainly always without the requirement of Law of two "diagnoses" from doctors.

This "presumption"of the Public Guardian's Office, without evidence, "flies in court." Attorneys are trained in rhetoric, and other vigorous and vicious attacks upon their "unwary opponents" and lay waste to the elderly in a lethal ambush. It is a real live monopoly at work, in that attorneys must be "consulted," and as such, "hired" with respect to a situation, where greedy professional Guardians can wreak havoc on a far larger scale than anyone else. Family courts, are cult "temples of doom" --where words kill!

There really is no protection: as they are Plunged into court "without a life preserver." It does happen, and someday you to will become incapable just the same and there is one thing for sure, it may come quicker than you think. It is a major undertaking, going into court with the always present affiliation with specific fraternal orders and other cults. Surprisingly Medicaid actually offers virtually nothing in the way of home care, why? Why are there no efforts to provide services to those who wish to remain in their homes?

With "insubmitable evidence" such accusations which seem to always convince the judge to act unlawfully. "Temporary Guardianship" somehow automatically always becomes "Permanent."

The Law is an impenetrable thicket, where the courts are a "bottomless pit" where not only the "quality of life" is lost forever, but life itself is taken in a skillfully woven "case," which in any case, is "murder one!" "Bar" Attorneys, as they call themselves, are lazy creatures, who want to handle "boiler plate" approaches, a sort of a prefab, that makes them appear as if they know what they are doing, and then they do not have to do anything except collect the money. There is something more than wrong where they get paid if they fail, and such, the more they fail, the more they make! Get it!

"Public benefit" programs are complicated government programs that are supposed to"assist" you... right? Like the "Social Security" Scam, since no money goes to next of kin upon the death of the "member," I guess it is just too tempting for crooked governments "agents" not to allow this murdering!

One way or another, these "Uncle Sam" groups, pretty much takes control of the finances and their victim's homes are immediately lost, along with everything else, including any wills and other legal documents and the valuables. These stolen documents are the ones that are supposed to allow you to make your own choices, based on your own values and are either ignored by the "judge" or flat out, missing.

The "Committing" to "Guardianships" without permitting them access to their own attorneys and then charging the victim with the bill for the "conspirators'" attorney is a grave crime. The victim then also must pay the Public Guardian's attorney for "time spent on the case," wether they really worked or not,... what a scam!.. What a country! And no matter what, it always escalates to enormous amounts of money. The Biggest scam(s) and scheme(s) the world has ever known, continues to siphon five, six, and seven-figure or greater sums from the bank accounts of the very "clients," they are supposed to be protecting!

Among the vast misdeeds, the Guardian Inc., sells its "client's" houses, and are directly and indirectly participating in intrinsic fraud, embezzlement, and many other crimes involving the estates of hundreds of thousands, of their so called "clients." That siphoning is pure theft, and then the "Public Guardians charges fees for these "services," billing their clients' estates up to $300 an hour or more, for even routine reviewing of bank accounts or records.

There seems to be no shortage of crooks in these scandals and the possibility of "becoming a millionaire overnight," can be irresistible. In the end, they say: "the money is all gone,... sorry."
The wealthy victims are left destitute, just like in Nazi concentration death camps. It is just not the Police Department you may have thought it was.

There are different schemes for the rich and the poor. It involves the profound loss of freedom, and your very dignity, then ultimately your life. So why are these violations not regulated in this state? The court is a "for profit" adventure enterprise, in which for sure, only the money matters.

The Public Guardian Office's elder victims are over-medicated, then require lots of extra care, which of course requires lots more money and they are then corralled into private enterprises' called "convalescent centers," all of this at this point, simply is due to the over-medication and the resulting incapacity. Drugged, and now truly incapacitated, adults are tortured to death as hapless and helpless victims within "the system" and its so-called "protections," not much different from what went on in ancient Babylon, the Roman Empire and Nazi Resigms.

So called "licensed" clinical "social workers," are trained to tell you just what you want to hear, and then do the exact opposite, even their smile it is tainted and only there to deceive.

Public Guardianship always backfires on the victim, leaving them much worse off than before, and they die shortly afterwards. They had no idea of the drama that was unfolding. In essence the courts serve only as a model for crime ... and they always "win" by action of the court, you always "lose" in this biased gamble.

Of Freedom and Murder and the Lethal Prescription­ Statistics are that hundreds of thousands die each year in America from "mis-prescriptions." Often they become very passive, then clinically depressed, then "give up hope," and begin eating more and sleeping too much, with no sunlight, no healthy food, no exercise and so forth to the ultimate end.

These total strangers assume control of the finances, placing the victim in a restrictive home or institution where even "Angels fear to tread." It is something that ought not to be taken lightly. Now, do you want to become a "legal statistic?" They place the elderly -- ostensibly for their own "well-being," as a guise of "best interest" ­ under the "care" of a "professional" thievedom of murder. The Public Guardian, redirects their mail, phone calls, bank accounts and everything else.

Not, no ordinary thief, as who think, your television -looks better in their living room; these guys -take everything... the house... the cars... the valuables... the bank account... your bank numbers... the jewelry... even the phones off the wall... everything, right down to your very address, permanent phone number and ID... not a scrap is left. Judges are too often biased and self-serving. It places the "best interest" decision squarely in the hands of a judge without first according the primary families' own best interests? Need medical treatment(s)... 'go to court," need therapy... "go to court," where a merciless judge alone has the right to decide and there are "no emergencies in the law"... you die waiting! Friends and relatives are refused access, while they drain their life savings away. Why is there no neighborhood outcry? You can hear the cries, over and over always the same: "How can they do this to me under the guise of Public Administration?" Then of course: "This is America,... these things do not happen in America!" Naturally they are perplexed and even angry, with the sudden loss of ones independence and the ensuing endless struggle to "win" it back.

"They are draining us dry," one woman cries while her husband begs on his knees for his life to an uncaring and dis-concerned judge "playing god," just like Nero and Caesar, but their thumbs are always down! The courts do not track the numbers or maintain a database on their own abuses. If they cared to do their job correctly, we would not have this mess in the first place! According to commonly accepted standards, Guardians are supposed to "carry out the wishes, preferences, and values of the ward," but in reality, it is much different and certainly not what was intended by the individual's "last wishes." The Public Administrators/Guardians Office, is sort of undertaker and taker and taker? Ripe with "opportunistic" opportunities for financial exploitation, negligence, and wrongful usurping. You become a grab bag, in this zealous greed.

There are no inventories of the ward's property as required by Law. From the EMT in the ambulance, slipping the rings off, to the police and the Public Guardian's full time stealing of all the valuables in the house, while being protected "under guard" by the corrupt Police Department. It goes on, day in and day out. Guardians who cannot prove that they have adequately cared for the ward, should be removed or put in jail, but not here in LAS VEGAS, they live lavishly without any fear of reprisal.

"Stolen Lives," of the traditional family-- verses the "communist agenda" of "assimilation." Who are these greedy professionals, -- who siphon these large sums from the bank accounts of the very people they are supposed to be "protecting," just like a true vampire, without anyone attempting to stop them by the Law or otherwise? With virtually little or no recourse availably, doctors also have "Licenses' to Kill," which unfortunately they do too well, and have "cart-blanche," basically issued by and protected by "the government."

It is an egregious problem, were flat-out rip-off situations and various means of defrauding of America's elderly run rampant and who then bill their victim.

It is an Absolute free for all!

Where are the recommended changes in state laws and courtroom practices promised? Whatever happened to the lawyers who "zealously" advocate the wishes of their clients. Guardianship and the family court system needs fixing, period. The legislators are too incompetent or complacent to do anything about it. A total overhaul is needed, but reforms remain a joke!

The administrative guardianship system, was brought over from England --our enemy, No Wonder!!!

Family court is a real life stopper. It is insane, it is a pure "institution" of death and destruction. The compete loss of due process right here, right now, quite literally as "to eat out our substance."

Creation of the Guardian and remove all oversight, by letting the courts dictate as the sole provisioner.

See that the ward has lost all rights; maintain "Guardianship" at all costs and keep the family members uninformed; if family members try to become guardian, accuse them of stealing and use the ward's assets for legal fights to retain Guardianship; do not list property with Realtors, and sell Real Estate at half price or less to your "good o' buddies;" hire your own money managers for "financial expertise" and let the manager select investments with a broker who invests in volatile speculative "banking trades" to generate huge profits and commissions; let the money go into investment portfolios of the world's elite crooks and unscrupulous banksters, like Wells Fargo Bank, with their unauthorized trades and sales that they call "investments" while actually paying for perpetual banking fraud; obtain "voluntary" financial guardianship; do not pay the taxes and let wards' home so it will go for taxes or foreclosure; hide away money in the attorney's "pool accounts" or "escrow" for possible "future expenses;" use improper financial reporting and bury brokerage and asset-management fees as aggregate capital losses, and say it is just "due to market fluctuations;" hold an instant "fire sale;" do not classify disbursements separately; file incomplete contents of the safe and safe-deposit box inventories or say nothing at all; establish secret agent contacts to get private information; pay your attorney well and let the attorney bill at full rates, whether they do anything or not and even if the work is done by a paralegal or assistant; forget to file federal tax returns: to ensure there is a refund and then wait till the ward dies and get the check without any fear of oversight; say that there is no money left, so there is no need for an accounting. They are exempt from actions as literally being, "above the law."

The Guardianships are delivering "care" with no certification, what-so-ever. In this unregulated environment, the potential for real abuse is so ever-present. Monitoring of the Administration of Guardian's guardianships remains nil to none. They appoint their own financial agent... there own social workers... there own controlled psychiatrists and on and on. The Guardians record as to rehabilitation at absolute zero, everyone is killed "on time," no on survives. There is no doubt that the very system that is supposed to be protecting them really ends up abusing them.

The Feds generally are reluctant to recognize any "Official Corruption" since if they did, they would not only have to act on it, but they would also have to admit that, they knew it was going on for more than thirty years now and obviously as such, they are condoning this activity! They are supposed to be protecting you, but they are protecting only themselves, you are not protected at all." We fought communism, just to find this stuff right here, and right out of the gestapo handbook.

They drug the victims rather than treatment for the illness as Negligence Extraordinare? The underlying ailments are not treated and pschotropic drugs are exchanged for the needed medicine. The "Nursing Home Inspection System" is corrupted. It is becoming more and more apparent that the survey and certification process, is also seriously corrupted. State inspectors understate the existence of serious "quality-of-care problems" like substandard care and questionable business practice(s).

Surveyors state that complaints are rarely interviewed thoroughly and the survey process itself, upon which we rely for accurate, objective and independent data, has been corrupted and we need to restore the integrity of the system if possible. The "assisted living facilities" are also "seriously corrupted," with state inspectors pressured to overlook or downplay problems.

Inspectors are "routinely instructed" to downgrade or ignore violations and told to rewrite their reports so the facilities' coming out looking better than they really are.

The system is broken.

Sort of like the Consumer's Affairs' Dept., a complete fiasco or the Governors Office as a just "nothing good, going on" at all. They just plain are not going to do anything, except for themselves. Tainted by the fact, that the judge "acts," ban the families "power of attorney" and other proper protections and documents as they condone the rampant stealing sprees!

The family is not allowed to be present when police or the Public Guardian is inside the home and they will be arrested if they ask questions or appear to be investigating. It is up to you, the reader to do something. One solution is to allow state regulation inspectors to anonymously report problems such as political acts of pressure, data manipulation, "Official Corruption" and so forth. Facilities with bad track records must be watched carefully. Where are the long called for changes in the industry, promised so long ago? Appropriate action to improve the quality of nursing home care must be followed.

If the Public Administer and Guardian does not do their jobs, then who is there to protect the ward from the Public Guardian? There is no doubt that an independent audit of the entire Administration is severely needed and immediately.

I feel I was nothing more than a piece of human property after an accident left me temporarily incapacitated and an illegal guardianship was created to profit from my condition. A lawyer in Winston-Salem, NC changed interim guardianship of the person into a financial guardianship to cover up or approve of illegally settling an accident case while the court said I didn't have the ability to make decisions. Then a real estate nightmare. I'm currently trying to get something done about it. I don't think they felt I would be able to conduct my own affairs again. The blogs I have created are guardianshipforsale.blogspot.com along with humanproperty.blogspot.com . Yes, there are many people trying to take advantage of the defenceless. It needs to stop.Sorry to hear of your situation. Lina.

I am attmepting to bring attention to this in Illinis. It is election year there. I live in Co and lost Mother in Illinois. She is dead through Estate Conservation. It is a tragic and true story. I have hard evidence of abuse and intend to fight. I blog on the AARP Blog as rocklady7. You can e-mail me through their blog. Maybe Washington in 2008. The anti-psychotic, zyprexa is used to accomplish estate conservation in long term care. Some of us are pushing walkers and wheel chairs to the capital. We need all the stories we can get (with signatures).

You are right, the elderly who contributed to this country and become vulnerable are no more than subjects of plunder. I am an only child so Mother lost everything. There are NO PROTECTIONS contrary to purported programs and regulations!

My Mother died due to Estate Conservation and Probate Court Abuse. Something has to be done! I live in Co but this happened in Illinois. I am going to march on the capitol as it is an election year. Maybe Washington in 2008.

Zyprexa, Bush was on Eli Lilly's board is used to practice estate conservation and is very effective. I post as rocklady7 on the AARP blog. Look me up and e-mail me. We need all the documentation we can get with signatures. I have good evidence and NO ONe wants to recognize it. This is a recognized legal syndicate operation, racketeering at its worse.

Clark County Nevada Public Guardians, Kathleen A. Buchanan and Rachael M. Burkhalter, with their attorney, Lee A. Drizin, systematically attach then deplete the assets of elderly residents.

First, the gullible, elderly person is intimidated into providing all bank and brokerage account information, real estate records, medical provider and care giver information.

Then, without evaluation, the elderly person is declared a ward of Clark County and all bank accounts, brokerage accounts, real estate holdings, including homes and automobiles are attached and frozen. The "ward" cannot even purchase a carton of milk at a supermarket or drive to the nearest café for a cup of coffee. They are confined to the house.

Whether needed or not, a care-giver of Buchanan’s and Burkhalter’s choice replaces care givers and housekeepers that have been assisting the "ward." What may have been 40 hours or less of assistance, per week, now becomes 24 hours per day for 168 hours per week at an hourly rate of as much as double what the "ward's" own care givers charged. This is suspect of a conflict of interest.

Then, family members and close friends are prohibited from staying with the "ward" and visitation is closely controlled and limited by Buchanan, Burkhalter and Drizin. This is a systematic effort to isolate the "ward" from contact with others and creates a sense of isolation, detachment and helplessness. This also serves to prevent family and friends from being able to observe neglect, abuse and manipulation by Buchanan, Burkhalter, Drizin and their hand-picked "care provider."

After the food is depleted, the "ward" must go begging for groceries. This creates a subservient relationship between the "ward," Kathleen Buchanan and Rachael Burkhalter. The "ward" now fears the repercussions that may result if they complain about their care. They are also restricted from sharing concerns with family members and friends.

Additionally, the "ward" is restricted from running errands, going on outings, enjoying everyday activities that they formerly participated in. Healthy social interaction, shared friendships and nurturing from others, is severely restricted as the "ward" increasingly feels isolated, suspicious and insecure.

After sufficient conditioning, a pretense is devised to have the "ward" hospitalized and placed under 48-hour psychological observation, during which time they are heavily medicated which results in disorientation and lethargy. Only then is the "ward" placed under court ordered psychological evaluation. After weeks of conditioning, the "ward" is certain to be declared incompetent and is placed under the total control of the Clark County Public Guardian who now controls all assets and expenditures of the "ward."

There is no justification for delaying a psychological evaluation for several weeks after Kathleen Buchanan has obtained all financial and medical records of the "ward." This delay is a strategic maneuver that ensures that the "ward" will be found incompetent.

Additionally, should a family member attempt to take legal action to protect a parent or sibling, Lee A. Drizin, will delay certification of any attorney that is requested to represent the “ward.” This is a common maneuver in civil cases but Kathleen Buchanan and Lee Drizin take it to a higher level. The plan is for the relative to fail to file any protective motions before the statute of limitations date.

If you need legal advice, information on Nevada Statutes, legal analysis of guardianship issues or an attorney with experience in these matters, this website includes valuable information: http://www.kathleenabuchanan.com It will help to locate evidence of negligence and abuse by Kathleen Buchanan, Rachael Burkhalter and Lee Drizin.

Good luck, Gary Y.

Jared E. Shafer is still operating as a Las Vegas private guardian, depleting the estates of a multitude of innocent senior citizens and disabled individuals who have the misfortune to live in Clark County, Nevada. The courts bless his behavior. Interesting that he has escaped all these years doing so many unethical things under the false name of "guardian". Makes one wonder what is wrong with the state of Nevada that they have allowed Jared E. Shafer to continue to operate in such a way to harm our society's most vulnerable. You would think that an old man in his 70's would be very tired of carrying on such unethical practices. What's that old saying grandma used to say? "Evil never dies". Must be true.

Reading these comments makes the level of my anger rise above a level I thought not possible. The chronology written by Gary Y. occurs in New Mexico in an identical manner. It is currently happening to a woman who has had the last two years of her life stolen by so-called guardians and conservators. They are now busy depleting her estate. The only son of this woman is hanging on in court by his fingernails, trying to get some relief. Without funds for an attorney, it is a situation that does not offer much promise.
