Dude sold mother's home $100,000 below fair market value


Selling the home $100,000.00 below fair market value, an act of financial elder abuse, is just the tip of the iceberg.

Now he is demanding $125,000.00 for something that he volunteered to do and something that mother never agreed too.  

Yeah, dude wants to be rewarded via the civil action in L.A. Superior Court case BP 099211 et al. petitioning the Court to reward him for his fuck ups.

What he won't do is admit to the things that he did wrong in financially abusing his elderly siblings.

He coerced and intimidated his sisters in order for his friends er, attorneys, to get rich off of both deceased parents estates.

How does one charge your mother for rent?

Congress should fund the Elder Abuse Victims Act


"In March, the Obama administration submitted a modest $25 million proposal to fund the Elder Justice Act, a law enacted in 2010 but grounded by a lack of funding. The administration’s request would fund grants to test ways to detect and prevent elder abuse, strengthen data collection and support research into the issue. The funding would also establish demonstration grants and determine what works and what does not. This funding would help develop a data system and research to create credible benchmarks for preventing elder abuse.

Unfortunately, a subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee slashed the funding to $10 million, an amount insufficient to begin work to address this crisis among our elderly."

"tsunami directed at our seniors"


Elder abuse tarnishes senior's golden years
Number of cases triple in past 6 years

"Our criminal justice system is not prepared for it; our courts aren't prepared for it; our government agencies are not prepared for it..."

HONOLULU —The many different forms of elder abuse can tarnish the golden years of seniors.

One front-line expert now expects Hawaii's growing elder abuse problem to turn into an epidemic.

Island pawn shops are being used by more than just those who need a little extra cash to cover their monthly bills.

"Seniors are coming into pawn shops and selling their wedding rings and jade jewelry to pay the money to someone in Nigeria because they won the lottery," said Scott Spallina, with the Elder Abuse Justice Unit.

Fake lottery and sweepstakes top the list of scams targeting Hawaii's seniors.

They are just some of the many designed by criminals to cash in on the vulnerability, trust or loneliness of our elderly.

The scams are nothing new, but what has changed is the number of elder abuse cases.

Feces & Dogs


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A Bakersfield woman is in jail and being charged with felony elder abuse after Kern County sheriff's deputies found the woman's 73-year-old mother living in deplorable conditions.
Deputies from the Kern County Sheriff's Civil Unit were enforcing a court ordered eviction at the home located on Cottonwood Road near Highway 58. They found that 34-year-old Tamra Lynn Camp was living there with her elderly mother.
Deputies say the one bedroom apartment was infested with rodents, littered with various soiled items and dog feces. They say 13 dogs occupied the apartment.

U.S. Court: Bloggers Are Journalists


U.S. Court: Bloggers Are Journalists
Even when they're libeling you
ROBINSON MEYER JAN 21 2014, 3:49 PM ET

One of the great questions of our time came closer to resolution last week, when a federal court ruled that bloggers are journalists—at least when it comes to their First Amendment rights. 

The Ninth Circuit ruled as such on Friday in Obsidian Finance Group v. Crystal Cox, a complicated case first decided in 2011. The court found that even though someone might not write for the “institutional press,” they’re entitled to all the protections the Constitution grants journalists.

The protections of the First Amendment do not turn on whether the defendant was a trained journalist, formally affiliated with traditional news entities, engaged in conflict-of-interest disclosure, went beyond just assembling others’ writings, or tried to get both sides of a story. As the Supreme Court has accurately warned, a First Amendment distinction between the institutional press and other speakers is unworkable: “With the advent of the Internet and the decline of print and broadcast media . . . the line between the media and others who wish to comment on political and social issues becomes far more blurred.”





Threats from Atty. Teddie Randall and Steven Fuller

VIA: EMAIL

June 30, 2014

Mr. Steven Fuller has directed  me to disparaging comments that you have make regarding me in your blog.   You have been constantly  besieging me by various internet accusations in which you outlining me in a negative or condescending manner.  I believe that your conduct is undertaken to  foster negative reactions against me in an attempt to promote your mother’s  positions in various court actions. 

 I  successfully represented your mother in  in a trust matter.   Recovering for her an interest whereby she was disinherited.  Since your conduct is in her name via a  power of attorney she gave you, I view your activity as an extension of her.  Such continuous internet activities by you is emotional and professionally disruptive to me personally and professional life.  

As you may or may not be aware the state of California has enacted various laws regarding internet harassment, calculated to inflict emotional or physical harm.

Black's Law Dictionary, defines such internet harassment as:

    "A course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such person and serves no legitimate purpose" or "Words, gestures, and actions which tend to annoy, alarm and abuse (verbally) another person." 

Cyberstalking is defined as: The use of the Internet, email or other electronic communications to stalk, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors.. Sanctions range from misdemeanors to felonies.

Cyberharassment  generally is  defined as not involving a credible threat. Cyberharassment usually pertains to threatening or harassing email messages, instant messages, or to blog entries or websites dedicated solely to tormenting an individual.

CIVIL CODE
SECTION 1708-1725

1708.  Every person is bound, without contract, to abstain from injuring the person or property of another, or infringing upon any of his or her rights.


1708.7.  (a) A person is liable for the tort of stalking when the plaintiff proves all of the following elements of the tort:

       (1) The defendant engaged in a pattern of conduct the intent of which was to follow, alarm, or harass the plaintiff. In order to establish this element, the plaintiff shall be required to support his or her allegations with independent corroborating evidence.

       (2) As a result of that pattern of conduct, the plaintiff reasonably feared for his or her safety, or the safety of an immediate family member. For purposes of this paragraph, "immediate family" means a spouse, parent, child, any person related by consanguinity or affinity within the second degree, or any person who regularly resides, or, within the six months preceding any portion of the pattern of conduct, regularly resided, in the plaintiff's household.

       (3) One of the following:

       (A) The defendant, as a part of the pattern of conduct specified in paragraph (1), made a credible threat with the intent to place the plaintiff in reasonable fear for his or her safety, or the safety of an immediate family member and, on at least one occasion, the plaintiff clearly and definitively demanded that the defendant cease and abate his or her pattern of conduct and the defendant persisted in his or her pattern of conduct.
    
       (b) For the purposes of this section:

           (1) "Pattern of conduct" means conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, evidencing a continuity of purpose. Constitutionally protected activity is not included within the meaning of "pattern of conduct."

              (2) "Credible threat" means a verbal or written threat, including that communicated by means of an electronic communication device, or a threat implied by a pattern of conduct or a combination of verbal, written, or electronically communicated statements and conduct, made with the intent and apparent ability to carry out the threat so as to cause the person who is the target of the threat to reasonably fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her immediate family.

              (3) "Electronic communication device" includes, but is not limited to, telephones, cellular telephones, computers, video recorders, fax machines, or pagers. "Electronic communication" has the same meaning as the term defined in Subsection 12 of Section 2510 of Title 18 of
the United States Code.
             (4) "Harass" means a knowing and willful course of conduct directed at a specific person which seriously alarms, annoys, torments, or terrorizes the person, and which serves no legitimate purpose. The course of conduct must be such as would cause a reasonable person to suffer substantial emotional  distress, and must actually cause substantial emotional distress to the person.
               (c) A person who commits the tort of stalking upon another is liable to that person for damages, including, but not limited to, general damages, special damages, and punitive damages pursuant to
Section 3294.

    I am not outlining  internet law to you simply to be verbose.  If necessary I will take what ever action necessary against you and the principal (i.e. person making you their “attorney-in-Fact”) to protect myself or my professional representation.  Such actions can be long and expensive.

Steven Fuller Jun 30 at 5:02 PM
To Me, Randall T

I saw your smear campaign on your blog.  I spoke with your mother, about her request to stay in my home while her apartment is renovated.  I informed her that I do not think it wise - not because I do not wish for her to be in my home, but because of your constant internet harassment.  The devil comes to destroy long established relationships, indeed - relationships that preexisted your birth.  While you do his bidding, I can only imagine if your mother fell or something happened to her while in my home - what a terrible campaign of smear and threats against me there would be.  However, there are legal ramifications that may result against you, in that I know my sister does not, in fact, approve of your behavior.   You are acting outside of the scope of your responsibilities and should be dealt with accordingly.

Journalism is a method of inquiry and literary style that aims to provide a service to the public by the dissemination and analysis of news and other information. Journalistic integrity is based on the principles of truth, disclosure, and editorial independence. Journalistic mediums can vary diversely, from print publishing to electronic broadcasting, and from newspaper to television channels, as well as to the web, and to digital technology.

In modern society, the news media is the chief purveyor of information and opinion about public affairs. Journalism, however, is not always confined to the news media or to news itself, as journalistic communication may find its way into broader forms of expression, including literature and cinema. In some nations, the news media is still controlled by government intervention, and is not fully an independent body.

In a democratic society, however, access to free information plays a central role in creating a system of checks and balance, and in distributing power equally amongst governments, businesses, individuals, and other social entities. Access to verifiable information gathered by independent media sources, which adhere to journalistic standards, can also be of service to ordinary citizens, by empowering them with the tools they need in order to participate in the political process.

Casey Kasem’s Unintended Legacy:


Casey Kasem’s Unintended Legacy: A Reminder of the Scourge of Elder Abuse

Perhaps now is the time to honor Kasem with activism on the issue of elder abuse. Miriam Becker-Cohen, a researcher at the Urban Institute, raises the issue of whether Kasem’s death at the age of 82, attributed to sepsis from an ulcerated bedsore, might have been related to elder abuse. Becker-Cohen acknowledges that there is no definitive evidence. However, Kasem, who suffered from dementia, was caught in a battle between his second wife and the children of his first wife regarding who would care for him and how as his health failed.
The press coverage of Kasem’s last days focused on the salacious family drama, but may have been instructive about the more important issue of elder abuse. Several nonprofits offer a variety of programs and services addressing the needs of the elderly, notably the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) among others. Often the public debate around senior issues focuses on Social Security and Medicare, but the topic of elder abuse isn’t often on the agenda.

June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day


The World Health Organization describes elder abuse as a global social issue affecting the health and human rights of millions of people. It estimates up to six-percent of the elderly are abused at home, with many cases going unreported.

The U.N. predicts the number of people 60 years old and above will reach about 1.2-billion by 2025. That’s more than double the figure recorded in 1995. And as the global population ages, the U.N. said elder abuse is expected to rise.

“Elder abuse is a universal problem encountered in many countries – with little recourse at [the] national level where [the] government in some cases may not have specific policies to encounter and remedy where such abuse is taking place.”

He said there’s a wide range of abuse against the elderly.

“Physical, emotional, sexual, psychological abuses -- and in some cases discrimination and denial of rights for older persons -- thereby taking them as sub-persons in their own nations,” he said.

And the abuse can be violent.

More Than 6,000 Cases Of Elder Abuse


There Were More Than 6,000 Cases Of Elder Abuse
In Wisconsin Last Year
Thursday, June 12, 2014, 6:47pm
By Shamane Mills

Last year there were more than 6,200 cases of suspected elder abuse reported in Wisconsin, and with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day coming up on Sunday, officials are trying to get the word out to prevent more cases from occurring.

“Elder abuse” has a specific meaning under Wisconsin law. The term applies to anyone over age 60 and refers to a wide array of offenses: treatment without consent, physical and mental abuse, or financial exploitation.


“Statistics show that (the) elderly in our community who are abused financially are the most reluctant to come forward, because often times it involves family members,” said Mahoney.

The court finds respondent culpable on all counts and after considering the facts and the law recommends, among other things, that respondent be suspended from the practice of law for a period of two years and until he provides proof to the State Bar Court of his rehabilitation, fitness to practice, and learning and ability in the general law.

Elder abuse on the rise, often at the hands of those closest - Really? Bring down hammer!


"law enforcement and prosecutors are seeing an increase in the number of incidents of exploitation and abuse against older people.
“People tend to think, ‘It’s never going to happen to me or to my loved one,’” said Rae Vermeal with Arizona Department of Economic Security’s Adult Protective Services.
But just in the past decade, reports of elder exploitation in Arizona are up nearly 50 percent, the agency says."

89-year-old WWII veteran reported missing from nursing home













By , and Oliver Duggan
On a day of sombre reflection and deep felt gratitude for the bravery of the men who stormed the Normandy beaches, one D-Day veteran in particular seemed to embody all their pluck, determination and even humour with his actions 70 years later.
Bernard Jordan, who served with the Royal Navy during Operation Overlord, had been looking forward to joining the events in northern France to pay tribute in person to his comrades who fell during the invasion.
But on being told by staff at the residential care home in Hove that they had not been able to get him onto an organised coach trip for the anniversary events, he took matters into his own hands.
Pinning on his D-Day campaign medals under his raincoat Mr Jordan, 89, set off under his own steam and headed for Normandy.

Abuser dons disquise, update on Robert Stella


Elder Abuse Suspect Dons Disguise to Get Close to Victim


Caught on camera: Estranged wife of elderly La Jolla resident was armed with a pen and legal docs, family said


A La Jolla woman, in disguise and armed with a pen and legal documents, tried to visit the elderly man she’s accused of abusing, family members told NBC 7.

Robert Stella and family members recently filed a restraining order request against Victoria Turner after a surprise visit at the care facility where Stella is undergoing treatment.

Stella, who just turned 91, was rescued from the garbage and filth in his own home last March. Family members claim his estranged wife, Turner, kept the home cluttered and filthy and – at times – tied Stella to his bed.

When Stella was removed from the home malnourished and dehydrated, he was hospitalized in ICU for days.

He is now recovering at a rehab facility where, according to daughter Michelle Redfield, Turner used a disguise and fictitious purpose to get close to him.

NBC7 Investigates obtained a copy of the security video and the restraining order affidavits connected to the April 5 visit.
