"I Just Want to be Free," Edward J. Baker

“If I was in jail or if I did something wrong, I’d understand. But I
didn’t do anything wrong.” He is being held prisoner by Protective Services in Arapahoe County in Colorado. He has been denied family, friends and freedom, his life savings pillaged and his future in the hands of those who don’t know who he is, just how much he was worth, in money. But to his family fighting for him to go home and retire in peace, his worth is measured with love.

The Denial of Constitutional Rights

One of the tactics we’ve seen repeatedly used by predatory fiduciaries is ‘problem, reaction, solution;’ with the solution always being to tighten the fiduciaries’ control. Once they discover an elder’s wealth or assets they suddenly become intensely “interested” in the welfare of that elder. This is a very lucrative business for these fiduciaries and they will do everything within their power to remain in control. No human being should ever be allowed to “own” another. Read more

The Erosion of the American Dream

Emma Parr's right to thrive and the failure of her probate court appointed guardian to perform his fiduciary duty
Emma suffered mental and physical abuse during her stay at an assisted living center while under the incompetent watch of her court appointed guardian. Although a motion was made to the Probate Court judge to have the guardian removed, the judge turned a blind eye. The only way to stop atrocities against our elders is to bring the inadequacies of the system to the attention of the public. Agencies which were put in place to protect elders from abuse, lack the capacity to do anything because they lack the power to discipline court-appointed fiduciaries. Probate judges have the power, but refuse to discipline or remove incompetent fiduciaries. (See stories below under "Emma's Smile")

The American Dream turned out to be The American Nightmare. Our irrevocable trust was circumvented and negated. All contents of the trust were demolished by the court system and unethical lawyers. Read More

Note to readers: Some families have deliberately omitted the names of the fiduciaries and judges who are involved in their cases. If  those names, and specific information to back up allegations are omitted, it is out of  fear of fiduciary retaliation.  Specific information will be made available to anyone interested in and able to provide significant help to these elders and their families if  these families can be assured of protection from probate retaliation.  We have experienced bullying from the guardians and fiduciaries when we complain or speak out; they get restraining orders or file suit  for tortious interference.
