I'm at my wits end but, unlike my maternal grand-father ... I'm still alive, not that I have been able to get anything done on his behalf. Yet, I understand what it must feel like to be abused and ignored. Especially the IGNORED part.
When I called the LASD in 2009, Thelsey Leo Fuller, 92 ... WAS STILL ALIVE!
I will find away to make my complaints known as long as I have breath.

Criminal Grand Jury, County of Los Angeles
http://grandjury.co.la.ca.us/ In Los Angeles County the Criminal Grand Jury attends hearings to weigh evidence brought by the District Attorney's Office in order to determine on the basis of this evidence whether certain persons should be charged with crimes and required to stand trial in the Superior Court. The Criminal Grand Jury is an accusatory body and not a trial jury; therefore, the burden of proof is much lower.
