Deception of “Protection” in Guardianship!!

Ginger Franklin was just shy of her 50th birthday when she fell down the stairs of her Nashville-area townhouse in 2008. A marketing representative for Sam’s Club, she was taken to the hospital with a severe brain injury. Doctors weren’t sure if she would survive.   Since Franklin had not designated anyone to make decisions for her if she became incapacitated, and with no immediate family, her aunt was advised to petition the court for a guardian. The guardian, a lawyer appointed by the county, placed her in a group home for seriously mentally ill adults. But Franklin was not […]

Reprobate in Probate?

  When I first was aghast at the sewage of snakes I found myself in, it was like a bad dream or the most terrifying surreal John Grisham book I have ever imagined. I have never had to watch anyone die as I begged and made a “well established record of throwing myself on the mercy of the court” (the AAL who condemned a woman to death said 9 days before as I begged through 3 TROS, injunctions, 3 motions to remove the guardian and 3 motions for jury trial that were ignored) as I watched just that. And then […]

Hoodwinked in the House of Representatives!

  What happens when the rule of law increasingly bows to the whims and violations of unaccountable public officials? Lawlessness in every branch and a system of law that caters to the elite, not the people. Our system of law is slowly being eroded by those at the top levels of our government in every branch to such egregious degrees that the law is not law anymore. Form takes precedence over substance. The appearance of legitimacy is all we have in guardianship anymore–unless you’re in a county without a “guardianship program.” I have personally witnessed the stark contrast in crime […]

Money talks, the Disabled don’t? I don’t think so

>I went to probate court and fought as hard as I could fight, working for free in some cases and reduced fee in others. I desperately cried for help but everyone died or was sold to the highest bidder. It was not a nightmare. It hasn’t ended yet and I fear for those still in guardianship. These people died in the protection of the guardianship program, designed to protect. They were protected from medical care, an education at the lowest federal standard, neglected in criminal ways, and kept from doctors who could save their lives. They were handed over to […]
