Shield Alert for David Italiano-Guardian Abuse, Mind Freedom International

This message is from MindFreedom International:

“Don’t Murder Me”, reads a hand written note excerpted from the journal of David Italiano who is being forced to live in a geriatric facility while wearing a humiliating ankle monitor. 

Shortly after this was received David was ‘disappeared’ and his legal guardian forbid him to have any contact with the outside world. He was disappeared precisely when his chosen advocates at Roads to Freedom Center for Independent Living (RTFCI) were making headway to support his expressed wish, to transition back to his own home.

Many individuals throughout the world, like David, are being forced to live in unsafe and restrictive congregate facilities: jails, prisons, nursing homes, psychiatric facilities, group homes, All are unable to celebrate the holidays in the safety and privacy of their homes. 

Many of these individuals are under abusive guardianships or conservatorships.. Under a guardianship, all medical treatment decisions, the decision about who to visit or call, all financial decisions, and legal decisions, even the right to retain an attorney to contest the guardianship itself can be taken away. Individuals under guardianship like David can be shut away in an institution, while their assets, including their home can be legally sold off and pocketed by a stranger.

MindFreedom International is teaming up with RTFCIL to find and free David because he wants to go home and his guardian is preventing him from having any contact with his chosen advocates. Staff at the nursing home went so far as to rip David’s cell phone from his hands when he tried to call his advocates for indepdent living, RTFCIL.. 

MindFreedom launched a Shield campaign to find and free David Italiano in October, 2021 in conjunction with  RTFCIL. You can read the original Shield alert HERE.

To date, our Shield campaign for David has not resulted in the outcome we desire.

That is where you come in. We are about to turn up the heat and we need your help.

Please sign the following petition to help us find and free David today!

PETITION

David Italiano embodies the tremendous amount of work.that still needs to take place in order to fulfill the promise of the Americans with Disabilities Act ADA (specifically the Olmstead Ruling) guaranteeing people the right to live in the least restrictive environment as well as the guidelines laid out by the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities

Our rights are not guaranteed. We must mobilize and unite to enforce our rights, one person at a time.

It has been a whole year since we knew the whereabouts of David in order to communicate with him and establish his well being. It has been three months since we launched a Shield campaign for David. This petition is important because David’s situation is urgent.

Many of you will receive multiple requests to sign petitions this year for a variety of worthy causes. Very few of them involve abusive guardianships, however. Please treat this petition as if your very life depended on it. What is happening to David can happen to anyone of us.

Why Family Courts and CPS Target Fit Parents, by Patricia Mitchell

By Patricia Mitchell

Rich, poor, middle class – no child in America is safe. These words of award-winning investigative journalist Keith Harmon Snow (author of The Worst Interests of the Child) refer to the abusive practices that regularly occur within the Family Courts and Child Protective Services (CPS) Courts. On their watch, each year hundreds of thousands of children suffer from abuse (including rape and prolonged torture) that would not have happened without this court system’s initial invasion and subsequent entrapment.

Removing children from their homes, separating children from parents, and creating conflict within the family unit is good business for the judicial officials and has become what the Family and CPS Courts do best.

Court officials heavily profit from these induced conflicts. They have learned how to milk the system for financial gain, by targeting the protective (fit) parent instead of the abusive (unfit) parent, resulting in children getting placed with pedophiles, sadistic sociopaths, and narcissists, in life-threatening environments. Although “the State” will pay the court officials if a low income or poor family is involved, the system forces protective parents who are middle class or wealthier to foot the bills for all court services. Either way, rich or poor, court officials have made a big business out of family conflicts, using children as currency.

Why would the courts target a fit parent instead of an unfit parent? Because there is no money to be made off of the unfit one. The Family and CPS Courts require one parent willing to participate with them, to care about the child’s well being and, most importantly, to make a commitment to the courts. Protective parents will do anything and everything the courts demand of them. Whereas abusive parents are more likely to give in after the court system’s first hurdle, demand, or when he/she sees the bills, simply saying, “Fine, take the child.”  Why Family Courts and CPS Target Fit Parents

Guardian Ad Litem Audit in Minnesota

A legislative commission on Thursday approved several state programs it would like the Legislative Auditor to evaluate, including the health department’s Office of Health Facility Complaints and the Minnesota Guardian ad Litem program, both subjects of 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Investigations in November.

The Office of the Legislative Auditor said its evaluation will look into management, governance, oversight and processes of specific program areas.”

Easter Blessings To Those Separated From One Another Due to Family Court Corruption

Dishonorable Ronald Grensky, A Poor Example Of A Judge

By Joseph Snook
Investigative Reporter

Medford, OR – Out of the twenty-seven judicial districts for the State of Oregon, Judge Grensky ranks in the bottom 2% of all judges according to The Robing Room, an online website that publicly reviews Oregon Judges. Out of the 173 Circuit Court Judges in Oregon, there are only three Judges with worse ratings than Grensky. Notably, almost half of Judge Gresky’s poor reviews are from attorney’s. The Oregon Court of Appeals is currently looking into how many cases Grensky has had overturned. And now, Grensky’s judicial authority has come into question yet again.

Grensky’s most recent miscarriage of justice took place in an ongoing child custody case between Christi MacLaren and her ex, Sean Lenzo, over their six-year-old daughter.


Christi with her daughter

Judge Grensky removed custody from Christi on Oct. 13, 2015 (Judge Grensky formally granted status quo custody on May 19, 2016, although daugther has been with Lenzo since Oct. 13, 2015) when Department of Human Services (DHS) Child Caseworker, Cori McGovern, testified that Chirsti had mentally abused her own daughter. Christi had previously reported that Sean Lenzo (biological father) had rubbed, “magic cream” on her daughter’s vagina in a really fast motion until bleeding/severe burning occurred – this according to her daughter. Next, the young girl reportedly claimed Lenzo took a picture of her vagina while it was bleeding, eventually showing her the photo as he laughed. This allegation, while cruel in nature, might not be “sexual” as originally reported.

Dr. Daniel P. Fisher & The Litigation Therapy Racket, With Michael Volpe

“When a court ordered professional begins working for one side, as Dr. Fisher clearly was in this case, it is the worst of both worlds. You have a hired gun with the veneer of independence. It is something I have seen and documented repeatedly. Dr. Stanton Samenow, not only in Chris Mackney’s case, would come in as a so-called independent arbiter but end up communicating, and often being paid, exclusively with one side. He would pretend as though his so-called expert opinion was objective while being bought and paid for and that’s what it appears happened in this case as well.

Not only with Dr. Fisher, but Natalie Koga and others in this case. The veneer of independence is one of many reasons why I believe all court ordered professionals should be outlawed immediately. They are not merely a waste of hundreds of thousands of dollars but counter-productive and often actively work to create conflict in cases in order to justify their continued involvement.”Michael Volpe, Author of Bullied To Death: Chris Mackney’s Kafkaesque Divorce

Dr. Fisher was reprimanded by the State of Illinois for Dual Role Misconduct in a prior case.  “The foregoing acts and/or omissions are violations of the “Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct”  Fisher_Redacted

The APA Ethics Code Standard 3.05 states that “psychologists should refrain from entering into multiple relationships…or otherwise risks exploitation or harm to the person with whom the professional relationship exists.”  But exploitation and harm is the strategy for these court shrinks for hire.

 It is considered unethical to switch back and forth between an evaluative and psychotherapeutic role,” David Stein, Ph.D., chair of the Forensic Psychology Committee of the California Psychological Association.

tumblr_mu9qdnUdpk1rw872io4_500We survivors of Therapist Abuse by these court shrinks for hire by the highest bidder, know full well the severe trauma when these so-called “professionals” – the lawyers, court doctors, court therapists and hired gun evaluators –  trap and re-traumatize us in their lucrative litigation therapy racket.

Forcing a trauma victim to sit in their office re-living traumatic memories against their will,  while they bill by the hour, scribbling their notes, writing false reports for corrupt Child Reps, Guardian Ad Litems, and guns for hire custody evaluators.

Because the victims of this racket are court-ordered to be there.  They did not choose these low rung of the ladder providers with sanctions on their licenses for themselves.  How convenient for them to have such an endless supply of guaranteed paying clients, provided by family court. The truth of the matter is, they need you trapped, or they won’t have a job.

BribesFCDr. Daniel Fisher, who wrote Natalie Koga’s made to order false reports, repeated his mantra, in his saccharin-sweet, pretending to care “therapist” voice:  “How’s your “therapy” going?”  Probing for anything to pounce on, all the while, working for the other side. 

 

Twilightzone1959And who could ever forget Dr. Fisher’s disturbing, cringe-worthy performance for a packed courtroom during one of his several days of false testimony!

Bizarrely, finishing his star turn on the witness stand, taking center stage while raising his chest into a stiff military posture,  he faced my ex-husband directly.  Then, with a grand flourish, GAVE HIM A FULL MILITARY SALUTE RIGHT IN THE FRONT OF THE COURTROOM! 

He remained “at attention” for a full two seconds, then suddenly remembering himself, flustered, looking down, eyes darting about.  My ex-husband beamed with delight as Dr. Fisher tottered off  the “stage”.

He should have bowed and curtsied too!   This, my friends, is one of the many ways the players in the litigation therapy racket show their true colors, and why Cook County Chicago will not allow videotaped transcripts.

As hired gun crazy-makers, these therapists don’t encourage you to speak your own truth with confidence.   An empowered victim is the LAST thing they want.

WalkingBeachThey don’t want you to walk on the beach, go to the woods, garden, go barefoot savoring the cool grass between your toes, rest, laugh, make art, or just take a healthy break from abusive talk therapy used against you in false reports paid for by the other side –  or anything else that challenges their power and control over their cash cows. 

They have no interest in your wellness.  They are not encouragers.  That would be counter-productive to the racket.

You see, just like Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, they aren’t in it to empower people to connect with their own inner strength.  They aren’t in this helping profession to help.  They are in it to harvest victims.

Their JOB is to Gaslight the victim.  To put them off balance – to mess with their heads.  To re-traumatize them.

To manufacture a “crazy label” for the victim in their Kids for Cash scam.  Hiding abuse, and keeping it going is big business.  And if they could, they would keep their cash cows trapped in their litigation therapy racket forever.

We Demand That Family Court Insiders Immediately Cease & Desist From Treating Us Like Their Personal Money Machines, by Lisa Nadig

If we really care about our nation’s children, we will insist on oversight and accountability in our highly lucrative, self-policing family courts that operate without any checks and balances.  We demand reform, accountability, and checks and balances in this system.  

We demand that our Constitutional Rights be upheld, Due Process, Rules of Evidence and the State Statutes be followed.  We demand that Family Court judges, who receive their salaries and pensions from our tax-payer money, adhere to their sworn Oath of Office.  

We demand that attorneys and court vendors adhere to the Code of Ethics for their respective professions.  We demand an immediate end to false reporting, perjury and Judicial Deception on the part of Child Representatives, Guardian Ad Litems, and all court vendors.  We demand that all Child Reps and GAL’s adhere to the statutes pertaining to their work.  

We demand an immediate end to the illegal practice of forcing litigants into so-called “therapy” with their buddies.  We demand an end to all cronyism and corruption.  

We demand that all family court judges, attorneys and court vendors behave in an honorable and decent fashion.  We demand that they treat each and every litigant and child in the system with honesty, respect, kindness, and courtesy.  We demand that family court insiders immediately stop exploiting litigants and Cease And Desist from treating us like their personal money machines.

State Family Courts Are Forcibly Depriving Children’s Access To A Parent Because It Is A Source Of Federal Revenue

The state is the welfare recipient. The funding means evidence of abuse is ignored.

“In simplest terms: State family courts are forcibly depriving children’s access to a parent because it is a source of revenue for the states – and because they can.”
