    Just an illustration of abusive government. Give them enough power and they will abuse it.

    I hope he gets MORE than he's asking for.

    It's outrageous that he has lost everything he's worked for his entire life because his partner fell down the steps and was hospitalized.

    It's outrageous that county and healthcare workers ignored the vital paperwork in place that would have prevented ALL OF THIS from occuring. There is NO EXCUSE for these abuses...and that's what they are. ABUSES.

    Abuses...simply because someone could treat these two older gentlemen anyway they wanted, including THE JUDGE (damn him to hell).

    Yeah...I hope another Judge grants him everything he asks for, and THEN SOME.

    What happened to these men is outrageous on the grandest scale.

    And if it could happen to them....it could happen to me or you, or anyone else.

    Anyone who disagrees needs to think about that for awhile.

    They came for the Jews, and I said nothing.....

    They came for the.....and I said nothing....

    When they came for me, there was noone left to speak....

    Couldn't agree more.

    Everyone involved, including the Judge and county workers abused power they didn't have, never had, and never will have...simply because they decided they could.

    On any other level, this would be considered a conspiracy to defraud these two men, on par with what Bernie Madoff pulled off, because YOU KNOW these two gentlemen aren't the *only* people who've been treated this way.

    Everyone involved thought they had this power---because they've been doing this to people for a long time and they THINK it's OK, because they've gotten away with it. Nobody has spoken out on behalf of their many victims.

    It's time We, The People correct the arrogance of our goverment, and our arrogant government workers. They WORK FOR US, not the other way around.

    Ayep....and they've been pulling this shit on Americans WAY too long.

    It's time to boot the arrogant government workers all the way to the curb.

    We, The People give away WAY too many of our rights to these thugs.

    If that story is an accurate representation of the facts then the county has acted in an inhuman manner.

    It will be interesting to see whether, despite the outrage, anyone cares enough to follow the story and post follow-ups.
