ELDER ABUSE IS A CRIME?
Res ipsa loquitur
"Of all the illegal and illicit enterprises in the world, elder exploitation is among the safest and most profitable."
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.

We don't know, you'd need to ask him. Keep in mind, dude had all of his mother's resourcesat his disposal. Dude did not have an agreement with anyone written or otherwise to be paid or reimbursed for voluntarily taking care of his mother!!!
Homeless man in shed illustrates Charlotte’s toughest cases
“She’s an African-American woman, educated and works a 9-to-5 job in the corporate sector. He’s an older white male with limited education, who grew up impoverished,” she said. “Their friendship seems to erase lines between race, class and gender in a way that is powerful.”
Pierce and Robinson first met when she was attending church at Community Outreach Christian Ministries, which was then working with the Harvest Center to house up to 20 homeless people. Pierce was in that housing program, but he was kicked out five times because of his drinking, she says.
“There is something about Bear, an almost childlike innocence that makes you want to help him,” she says. “That innocence got him taken advantage of a lot on the streets.”
Robinson’s friends say she has a reputation for bold acts of kindness, but many were surprised to learn she was allowing a homeless man to live on her property.
