Generational Wealth, Minorities and Criminal Conspiracies!

Tuesday, August 17th, 2021

It is amazing what is happening in the United States around “generational wealth.” An area to reduce the number of minorities achievements and especially to help to put a cap on how high they can go. A few will slip through, but other blockages are going up for them. This one is for those who could move quite far with the wealth acquired and put aside for them by their parents and other relatives in their parents generation. How it is being taken and repurposed so it will benefit white male northern european ancestry people in these United States.

What happened to Robert and Marceline was about the attempt to strip them of whatever they had so it would benefit white northern european ancestry people and their families. Well, until recently, when we became aware of minorities gathering around to do the same thing to other minorities. Are we such a country so full of greed that this is how we treat one another?

What happened and continues to happen to Robert is a well established pattern with the same people involved, basically stripping the elderly of their wealth with the help of the state and the Court. We are appalled, but no longer in disbelief. It is too clear for denials.

We believe this is a criminal conspiracy.

The pattern:

  1. An attorney comes along with a client to make the claim in Court that the target is “indigent”. The opposite of what they know, but what is needed to get the Court to relax its standards and help these poor minority elderly almost destitute folks.

2. The attorney asks – on behalf of their client that the person involved not be notified of motions, etc. That the hearings be held without their knowledge. After all, this is an “indigent”, elderly person who we can’t afford to allow to have any rights. The goal is to strip every right the person has to make it easier to strip their earthly goods.

3. Usually the tact taken is to claim the person has some kind of mental illness, shove them into the psych ward of a cooperating hospital – or at the least a hospital where there are people working who are cooperating or who can be bamboozled.

4. Have the Court appoint an attorney to represent this person – stripping away the persons right to choose their own attorney. And again, without notifying the person for whom an attorney is being appointed. The attorney will be paid by the state – but not named in the hearing. The naming of the attorney who will fill this role will be done by the attorney who first brought the action representing, most probably, a state agency.

5. All of the above and more done within hours on the same day. No notice to the target and move quickly before anyone realizes what is happening.

6. Have the named attorney file the basic case without the knowledge, consent or involvement of the target on any level. Mental illness comes first in the line. Indigent comes second with the person filing a motion with the Court that they are indigent and the state needs to pay the attorney. Usually that is enough to move along to hiring a psychiatrist, paid for by the state, to declare the target “incapacitated” and make sure Mass Health (in Massachusetts, some other group in other states) is either already in place or has been applied for because nursing homes don’t take patients who don’t have Mass Health or its equivalent.

7. Shove the person into a nursing home after their stay in the psych ward of a hospital which has declared them “incapacitated” after a substantial bout on drugs that have incapacitated them and the patient then takes their “incapacitated” status with them.

8. The attorneys then show up again and motion for a “temporary guardian” declaring the person without family or anyone else capable of being the “temporary guardian” without the control of assets, but shortly there after for full guardianship with control of the persons assets.

9. The attorneys know every detail of the targets assets, where and how to reach them and whatever else they need to know – told to them by Mass Health which gives the attorneys a well documented map to all of the targets assets. You don’t need to have been accepted for Mass Health. This is mostly for those who don’t qualify – too many assets and income – but even the application gives the attorneys that much needed asset map. The goal? To know where to place liens, etc. to gain ownership of the assets of this person who is now in a nursing home, under restraint, alone because family and friends are not allowed to visit and declared without “executive functioning” to be able to live alone. When you do the research, however, you find many of these folks have family and close friends who have been driven away by the attorneys and their ‘helpers’ and the state agency and, of course, the requisite home health care people who are key to this entire thing being successful.

10. The target, at this point, has been pumped full of an incredible array of drugs usually including anti-psychotics which becomes legal because of the court’s going along with the program with very little to no oversight and the group – usually a guardianship corporation which the attorney oversees – in charge of this elderly soon to be destitute person starts the process of drawing down the elderly persons’ assets.

11. The end of that persons life is made horrendous because others want to strip them of whatever they have managed to accumulate over a lifetime. Usually they end up in a state of shock in constraints in a nursing home – preferably one where COVId-19 is raging or some other kind of illness awaits to help shorten their life to run on a parallel track with the drawing down of their assets. Death when the assets run out is a particularly good outcome.

Insurance is a major part of the stripping and drawing down – it can provide in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to institutions involved.

$300,000.00 – and climbing! The amount spent to destroy the marriage, business, life and health of an African American family!

Sunday, June 6th, 2021

Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett and his family are still trying to recover from the anti-psychotic drugs given to him daily in Mass General Hospital when he clearly did not want to be in the hospital and did not want all of the drugs forced down his system.

Dr. Bennett was forced to take many drugs which he did not want and had no idea what they were or why he was having to take them. Hallucinatory drugs and many more were given to Dr. Bennett on a daily basis for five weeks at MGH when he was forced into the hospital a second time after having been discharged at MGH from the police enforced incarceration after a psychiatric exam determined there was no reason for him to be kept. That discharge on March 4th was with all vitals normal, including blood pressure. One of the drugs he was given less than two days later was blood pressure medications. From his discharge from MGH until today, he has not been prescribed blood pressure medications because they are not necessary.

Dr. Bennett was forced into MGH, not for medical reasons. We think it was because of the greed of those pushing him into a horrible space so the generational wealth of an African American family would not be passed on to the heirs, but would be drained off by those who forced Dr. Bennett into the psych ward and police ward of MGH.

Dr. Bennett was forced into the hospital on March 3rd by a psychiatrist, a Dr. Warner, who was affiliated with Mount Auburn Hospital. Dr. Bennett had no relationship with either Mount Auburn Hospital or the psychiatrist. He was never at Mount Auburn Hospital even for a checkup.

The people behind the psychiatrist who forced Dr. Bennett into the hospital on a Section 12 – psychiatric charge – also had no relationship with him. They had never talked to him, never interviewed him for any reason and he is one of several African Americans so treated. The end result? The Jews, Blacks and other minorities so treated had their assets taken along with their reputation and their family destroyed fighting abuse and other such charges. What a way to rid this society of its successful minority citizens.

How did we know of the drugs he was forced to take? MGH sent bottles of drugs home with him demanding that a Home Health Care Service monitor his continued intake of these drugs on a daily basis or Dr. Bennett would be forced back into the hospital. The drugs made him ill after taking them and as he began to recover it was time to take the drugs again. This was not the Home Health Care Service attached to MGH. This was the group put in place by SCES.

At this point we started to read the Bettina Network Blog – with which Dr. Bennett is affiliated and it gave answers to our most basic question – why?

The psychiatrists at MGH sent Dr. Bennett home from that first forced incarceration. All vitals normal including blood pressure and no mental health issues.

The very next day Cambridge Somerville Elder and Protective Services with their attorney O’Sullivan were back in Court having the police pick him up again and force him into the hospital. They had no proof . They had a sworn statement by the head of Cambridge’s Protective Services – Nora Al Wetaid. Ms. Al Wetaid has had no conversation with Dr. Bennett. She claimed his wife abused him and he had to be removed from his home immediately because the abuse was so horrendous and he had no one to turn to or to care for him. SCES also claimed he was alone with no place to go so he was brought to MGH. THE TRUTH? In Dr. Bennett’s home at the time were his adult children, and his daughter-in-law. The family is also surrounded by many other family and friends to whom either one could have turned for help. Ms. Al Wetaid did not know that because her job, apparently, was to have Dr. Bennett demeaned, disgraced, destroyed financially so she could benefit.

What is most amazing SCES and the attorney supporting them along with others along the way did not know Dr. Bennett or his wife. They had never met him – never had a conversation of any kind with him, knew nothing about him and yet they gathered together to have him incarcerated in a psych ward – their hospital of choice was Mount Auburn Hospital.

Dr. Bennett did not go to Mount Auburn Hospital because his wife was going to throw herself under the ambulance if they tried to take him there. It is not a hospital either one would choose. Since both knew quite a bit about local hospitals – Dr. Bennett’s wife having served for a time as chaplain at Deaconness, among others and Dr. Bennett, as an ordained priest who responded to requests from people needing help as priests are expected to do – they have quite an in-depth knowledge about local hospitals.

MGH knew better. Their psychiatrists had examined Dr. Bennett the first time SCES forced him into the hospital against his wishes and found no reason to keep him. They did nothing except accept a patient who would bring lots of money into the hospital because of this incarceration.

Involved in this, we believe, was the fight amongst hospitals as they push to gain patients. This started, after all, by the police pushing into Dr. Bennett’s home to force him into Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA. There has been quite a bit circulating about such competitiveness amongst hospitals which comes at the expense of a patients health. Here is a clear cut example.

If we had to give a verdict about all of this it would be that this is how the generational wealth of minorities is being drained so that White Supremacist have an easier time maintaining the oppression and more that they have traditionally practiced against minorities. From our investigation this has been practiced particularly against Jews. It is now being practiced against Blacks and other minorities. Much wealth has changed hands from minority to white quickly without notice using the guardianship laws in these United States. Even those minorities with small estates find themselves destitute and indigent. Not before this happened to them, but at the end of the process.

Dr. Bennett had just been discharged – two days earlier – from Mass General Hospital after what appears to have been successful brain surgery.

Dr. Bennett had been in MGH for brain surgery. He was there for a week and recovered beautifully. During that entire week not one doctor involved in the surgery talked to Dr. Bennett’s wife in spite of her asking to speak to them each day she arrived to visit. They ignored this African American woman who had been married to this African American man for 38 years. In talking to him and her they had a very happy and solid 38 year marriage with no hint of anything negative – especially not abuse. Here, we believe, the negative stereotype of African American women comes into play. In addition, the racism we found through all of this was extreme and horrendous.

In fact, the Protective Services at MGH finally decided there had been no abuse. They decided that after some $200,000 was spent on medical services at MGH.

Rehab was another issue that caused horrendous suffering to the Bennett family. Without either Dr. Bennett or his wife (who was his HCP) had any discussions with anyone as to rehab and the choice of a place. Dr. Bennett was not in favor of rehab. He had expressed a choice of Spaulding as did his wife. Instead, with no discussion of any kind, Dr. Bennett was forced into rehab at Sherrill House.

Interesting to note that when one enters Sherrill House the color is brown to black. When one enters Spaulding the color is white with very little of any other color. Is this how those places are maintained as segregated? It happens at the hospital before the patient leaves?

Without any discussion, Dr. Bennett was forced into Sherrill House. His wife arrived at MGH to visit and was told Dr. Bennett had been sent by ambulance to Sherrill House. What neither one knew, but what MGH and Sherrill House knew was that Sherrill House was going under quarantine because of the flu in their midst. They knew that before MGH sent Dr. Bennett to Sherrill House and Sherrill House knew that before accepting him. Sherrill House, however, waited until Dr. Bennett arrived to declare their quarantine and so subjected Dr. Bennett to the flu for their own profit related reasons. When the quarantine became clear, Dr. Bennett decided he wanted to go home where it was much safer and his wife took him home.

Next day, in Court, Dr. Bennett is declared “indigent” – destitute and not able to pay for an attorney to defend himself against actions filed against him by Nora Al Wetaid and Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services ordering the police to take him out of his home to Mount Auburn Hospital.

Interesting to us is the fact that Dr. Bennett was not so destitute that Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services – who brought this action – saw to it that Dr. Bennett was charged for just about everything. Bills have poured into the Bennett home having been created for them by Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services. None of the bills were authorized nor agreed to by the Bennetts. Amazing that Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services did not think he was destitute when it came to charging the bills they created. It is also interesting that the bills SCES found some other way to get paid – ie by the state – are those that paid for the people they wanted involved so they would be able to control both sides of this issue.

Dr. Bennett has been personally charged as well as through his insurance for bills he did not create and for services he neither needed nor wanted. His right to choose who would supply whatever services he did need and want was completely taken away from him by SCES.

Dr. Warner, the psychiatrist, who signed the Court Documents to commit Dr. Bennett to the police ward and psych ward of Mount Auburn Hospital and who knew Dr. Bennett had been sent to MGH instead and discharged from MGH countering her claim, showed up at MGH later to be the “Independent Examiner” paid for by the state to give Dr. Bennett anti-psychotics amongst other medicines to be able to declare Dr. Bennett ‘incapacitated” and Attorney Cheri Myette, appointed as Dr. Bennett’s attorney by the opposing attorney – O’Sullivan, was also paid by the state. Attorney Myette was paid by the state after Dr. Bennett’s wife hired and paid attorneys to represent Dr. Bennett. An entire system conspiring to take away basic rights from an African American citizen of these United States. The people needed to be a part of this incredible criminal conspiracy were state of Massachusetts funded. Everything else was billed to Dr. Bennett.

From other such situations we have investigated, the state is usually repaid after the person so attacked is shoved into a nursing home for life with the claim that they are totally unable to care for themselves with no one around to care for them.

One African American escaped the nursing home he was shoved into and constrained in bed after he was declared to have no “Executive Functioning” and no ability to either provide or care for himself. He had to escape being constrained in a bed in a nursing home to have a life of freedom instead of incarceration on psychiatric drugs. He had a family who cared for him and they were charged with abuse. He also had to escape because while in the nursing home, the state was in the process of taking all of his assets. Somehow, this does not meet the SCES criteria for a person having no Executive Functioning, no ability to either provide or care for himself, etc.

So the attempt to incapacitate Dr. Bennett and claim that his wife abused him was not the first African Americans have had to fight. Unfortunately, this is happening to the elderly who mostly don’t have the experience, or circle of supporters to be able to fight such. They are shoved into the nursing home after an agency takes guardianship over the person, including their assets. Those assets are drained down and the state reimbursed. The elderly person dies and causes no distress to anyone. No need to account for anything and that ends that story. The whites are richer and the minorities dead.

In the case of Dr. Bennett, SCES went to Probate Court. They asked that Dr. Bennett not be notified of the hearing. They described Dr. Bennett as very old, indigent, alone with no one to care for him and he was a psychiatric threat to the community.

The Court knew Dr. Bennett knew nothing about that hearing because SCES asked that he not be informed. The Court objected to Dr. Bennett not being informed about the hearing and appointed an attorney. Not a named attorney, but just an attorney.

Attorney O’Sullivan, who was representing SCES decided that attorney would be Attorney Cheri Myette. So , in effect, the opposing attorney appointed the attorney who would be appearing in Dr. Bennett’s name.

The Court, with a new judge now in place, said to Attorney Myette that she should contact her “client”. She did not, but she did file a motion in his name including a claim – under oath by the attorney – in which Dr. Bennett was supposed to be swearing to the fact that he was “indigent.” Dr. Bennett knew nothing about this. Attorney Myette apparently felt she could make such claims in a motion all on her own without her “client” knowing anything about the motion – have the motion impounded so no one would be able to read it or know of the charges – and the case then goes on from there with no one knowing how it got started. Common with the cases we have investigated is the confusion the people so pushed around have, not knowing nor understanding where all of the mess and upheaval came from because there is nothing showing that answers any of those origination questions. The answers to those questions have been hidden in the bowels of the Court.

There is a blog in this Bettina collection of blogs which replicates the statement Dr. Bennett made denying that he made such a statement and saying clearly he knew nothing about the motion – nothing about an attorney being appointed to represent him – etc. That statement is notarized.

Attorney Myette was appointed and filed the motion accusing his wife of abusing him – knowing full well that was not true. She wrote the motion as though it was being written by Dr. Bennett in which he claimed and ‘swore’ to being “indigent” and in need of state funds – knowing full well that was also not true. Attorney Myette did all of this within an hour or two of her being named Attorney for Dr. Bennett by the attorney representing SCES – Attorney O’Sullivan. The one thing Attorney Myette did not do was to contact her supposed client. No one saw any need to notify Dr. Bennett of any of this. Why would one bother to confuse everything by getting an African American man involved – his stereotype and the stereotype of his African American wife was enough. Winning usually means dealing with the stereotype instead of the real person.

How many elderly have lost their lives, their estates, their family because of this kind of attack?

Interesting that the people doing the filing knew 1) Dr. Bennett was not destitute nor indigent at the time and 2) they knew Dr. Bennett had just left MGH so why the push to immediately take him to Mount Auburn Hospital just a day or two after he left MGH where his records, etc. were?

Dr. Bennett’s wife turned to a friend to recommend an attorney. Caroline Tribe recommended Shippen Page. Ms. Donaldson hired Shippen Page who in turn hired Lisa Cukier with Burns & Levinson. Ms. Cukier to represent Dr. Bennett. Attorney Page to represent Ms. Donaldson.

That didn’t quite happen the way it was planned. Ms. Cukier decided to represent Ms. Donaldson, without Ms. Donaldson’s knowledge or consent. In the process of that representation it was clear Ms. Cukier’s respect for her client was non-existent. One condition Ms. Donaldson had before hiring Ms. Cukier was that she agrees to file an emergency motion to have Dr. Bennett released from the prison of the hospital (MGH) where he was being held in a locked ward with guards outside the ward and being fed medicines without his knowledge or consent with no one knowing what he was being fed when he was supposedly not in the hospital for medical reasons, but according to the papers filed, because of the claimed abuse and the claim that Dr. Bennett was alone in a house with his wife who was abusing him. In actual fact, in the house were Dr. Bennett’s two adult children and a daughter-in-law. All black so they could be discarded as irrelevant.

Once hired, Ms. Cukier did not file the emergency motion, but decided to wait until the hearing date for the motion – which was a bit into the future giving everyone time to do what was necessary to attempt to incapacitate Dr. Bennett, create a medical record which is spurious along with a number of other activities which our investigation shows were meant to drain Dr. Bennett’s assets along with the assets of his wife, which is apparently the reason they had to accuse her of abuse – to open the door to opening the door to their home to be able to use it to line their pockets. We have talked about in the past because we have talked to several people – African Americans and Jews who were subjected to the same and whose assets were drained and they were left much poorer after what turned out to be trumped up charges.

When Ms. Cukier was hired she asked for a retainer and her terms were that once the retainer was paid Ms. Donaldson would receive monthly bills every 30 days which she would be expected to pay within 30 days.

Things didn’t quite work out that way.

The retainer was paid promptly. The day of the hearing, much less than 30 days into Ms. Cukier being hired, Ms. Cukier called Ms. Donaldson to say she should bring to her home $9,000 because this is what was needed. She changed the terms of her hiring. In addition, she said she would not appear at the 4pm hearing that was to happen that day unless Ms. Donaldson showed up at her home with the $9,000. This was just a few hours before the hearing took place. She also was very clear that Ms. Donaldson was not to go to her front door, but she ordered this African American woman to take the money and go to the back door to deliver it.

Those of you who know Ms. Donaldson, know that did not happen. Ms. Cukier and her assistant called several times about the money and the abusive telephone calls so unnerved Ms. Donaldson she could not function for several few days.

At the same time, there was an email from Attorney Page asking about the motion response Ms. Cukier intended to file because it left out very important and relevant information and he didn’t understand why.

The motion papers did not make the Court aware of the fact that Dr. Bennett had been discharged from MGH less than two days before he was forced out of his home on a Section 12 (psychiatric charges) and the papers said he was fine. They noted his vital signs were normal including his blood pressure.

Ms. Cukier did not change her filing to include that fact. Reading what she submitted it is clear to us those submissions were to keep Dr. Bennett in MGH. Ms. Cukier ignored Attorney Page’s concerns as well as the concerns of others.

This was clearly shaping up to look exactly like a criminal conspiracy which has happened to other minority elders who have suffered much in the process – and some died.

We won’t outline everything that happened, however, this resulted in Attorney Page resigning – Ms. Donaldson discovering much that had been kept from her – Ms. Donaldson firing Ms. Cukier – Ms. Cukier continuing on in spite of the fact that she had been fired for some really strange actions which appear to be those meant to work with Attorney O’Sullivan to attain his and Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services’ goals. They have some serious problems which clearly are not going to be addressed. From what we have seen they are allowed to very irresponsibly destroy the quality and life of others.

Doing research we find Ms. Cukier involved in other places – similar – where she made legal moves which we think are questionable.

This, plus everything else involved in the attack on Dr. Bennett has a price tag going over $300,000.00. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts with its agencies which were involved bears some of the blame for this and allowed its agencies to spend tax payers money to engage in extreme bigotry – among other things. Since what happened and is continuing to happen to Dr. Bennett has also happened to other minorities – we seriously question what is going on within Massachusetts Government which is clearly encouraging such by doing nothing about it except supplying money needed to gain a law-breaking result.

For example – Dr. Bennett was sexually abused through this process. That was reported to Maura Healey, who did nothing about it. There were witnesses who were neither questioned about this nor contacted in any way. Ms. Healey is today running for political office. Needless to say, we will be there calling attention to some of these horrendous occurrences.

Dr. Bennett was removed from his home forcibly by the police without a Court Hearing, in spite of Massachusetts laws which forbids such – so laws were broken and the people involved not called up for this.

Dr. Bennett was forced to take anti-psychotics, which he did not want, but had no choice in the locked police ward of MGH. The Courts have just verified that this is definitely a violation of the law.

Every right that Dr. Bennett and his family have under the federal laws and the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts were violated. His medical record also does not accurately reflect what happened to him.

To our knowledge, this has happened to African Americans and Jews and we suspect also to other minorities. It totally violates both federal and state anti-discrimination laws.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg.

It is interesting to us to bring into this picture what happened to Dr. Gates from Harvard University. He was ‘arrested’ by the police for breaking and entering his own home. They tried to put him in jail on a criminal charge that was bogus.

The attempt was to what – demean? embarrass? destroy his reputation? At least put into the public mind the picture the media took of him being arrested in his own home.

By the time they tried to do the same thing to Dr. Bennett their tactics changed. It was not a “criminal” charge. Dr. Bennett was picked up at his home on a Section 12 – a psychiatric charge. He was not the first. The way the media has steadfastly ignored all of this from the several people so treated it is clear there will be more of this happening in Massachusetts. It appears to have someone’s support for its continuation.

Others – particularly African Americans and Jews have been so treated with no restitution and no investigation into what this was all about. Ignore them. Let them struggle. The goal will be to reduce the achievements of minorities because their generational wealth will be eliminated. What they could do with such a backing will not now be possible.

The court papers documenting the Court part of these actions are being impounded in an action led by Attorney Lisa Cukier. Those papers need to be available to the public so others can see and know what has happened in the past. The impoundment is not because the families want those papers impounded. Several attorneys are consistently involved in such and their names need to be known – the actions they have taken need to be known, etc.

We appreciate your feedback and your experiences with such. Please don’t hesitate to email us at bettina-network@comcast.net

A Reader’s Request Re: Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

“I tried to follow the blogs which talked about what happened to Rev. Bennett. I was a student of his and felt great pain reading that. A more gentle caring man you can not find so to read about how he was treated is just horrible.

I have a question, which may make me sound stupid, but could you summarize what happened for me – and maybe others out here feel the same – I had a very difficult time following what happened. Sometimes I got the ugliness of it, but couldn’t follow the story. I have no legal training or any kind of experience with anything legal so I got lost many times”

_______________

Thank you for your concern and interest. When these kind of things happen, folks causing the problem hope most people will have your reaction, back away, forget what happened to another human being. This then allows the people who perpetrated this to move on to the next person. We hope you will continue to follow this. We have a long way to go before this is over and at the same time, there are others who need help for very similar reasons.

I can give you the beginnings of what we believe is a criminal conspiracy and which took away Robert’s freedoms on every level without his having a chance to know about and/or defend himself in violation of state law and probably many other laws.

As we have seen from others, what makes it difficult to follow this is the attorneys involved impound the documents so almost no one can see them. We think it is something called CYA for them. What took us a long time to understand this was the fact of the impoundment. The SCES attorneys asked that all the documents be impounded. Thank God, someone had access and put documents from the case through the mail slot at Robert’s home.

Several other people – all minorities – have come to us asking for help. The problem they were having – besides the ugly of what was done to them or their family – was trying to figure out what happened and why. We had the same problem, but after a bit of help this is what we found. It isn’t the whole story, just the beginning to give you some idea as to what we are up against. We discovered it is also a pattern which other such happenings follow almost to the “T” – as the old folks say.

On March 3, 2020 the Cambridge police rang Rev. Bennett’s door bell. Eight white policemen, five or six EMT’s, two ambulances and a hospital gurney were sitting outside.

The police said they came to get Robert Bennett because of a Court order to pick him up and take him – whether he wants to go or not – to Mount Auburn Hospital.

It was a shock and total disbelief for all in the house. None had ever experienced anything like this. Neighbors came from across the street to see if they could help.

We discovered there had been a Court Order. The police didn’t have a copy and didn’t intend to give Robert or anyone else a copy. Robert was supposed to just go with them without any proof of their right to be at his door demanding he would either go voluntarily or be dragged out.

After some back and forth with the police and all the people in the house, one of the policemen left and returned with a Court Order.

It was a Section 12, taken out by Dr. Rebecca Warner – a psychiatrist. We had never heard of her. Mount Auburn Hospital was the last place any of us would go because we don’t think much of the place. After this, we think it should be one of the hospitals closed. There is no excuse for a hospital not knowing this kind of thing is going on within its buildings.

This “Court Order” said Dr. Warner had never met Robert, never examined him, never been to his house, but she signed this order anyway and added that the house she had never seen was “unsafe.”

This Section 12 is the kind of order taken out to force people into the hospital who are causing trouble publicly and from drug overdoses, alcoholic episodes in public, etc. None of that described Robert on any level – and he was just home from MGH where he had what appeared to be successful brain surgery. Before he was discharged from MGH for brain surgery he was taking care of himself, walking, talking and in good shape. We were all concerned before the surgery, but after we were relieved until the police started appearing.

Having just left MGH why was Mount Auburn Hospital people trying to shove Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett into their psych ward – and without any reason.

If you know Marceline, Robert’s wife, I am sure you know she went ballistic. Robert went instead to MGH. Marceline insisted and that was the only concession the police would make.

Robert was examined by a psychiatrist at MGH who said there was no reason for him to be there, no reason for them to keep him and several people were amazed to see us in an “emergency room” for people having had psychiatric breaks, other mental emergency problems or substance abuse problems.

Marceline and a neighbor stayed the entire time with Robert refusing to leave him alone.

After his exam by a psychiatrist, which is required under a Section 12, the Section 12 was lifted and Robert went home. That was about 3:30am. From mid-day on the 3rd of March until 3:30am on March 4th.

It took that long because there was a long line of people waiting to be seen by the psychiatrists.

Robert was sent home with all vitals normal including blood pressure. No medicines prescribed, etc.

That charade was thanks to Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services. This is a group we are discovering is totally out of control and Protective Services – which serves the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has caused significant and horrible hurt to many people – mostly elderly and mostly all minorities. After their encounter with this group they are decidedly less-well off – their assets, including their insurance has been practically drained. I would classify this as medicare fraud – using medicare to perpetuate what looks like a criminal conspiracy.

On March 6th, the police were back. This time only two police, one ambulance, a couple EMT’s and for the same reason – to take Robert to MGH because the Court ordered such claiming he was in grave danger living with a wife who substantially abused him – physically, mentally, health wise by refusing him medicines prescribed for him and more. The Court Order granted to Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services a Protective Order which had nothing to do with Robert. It read as though it was taken from fiction. The Court also ordered an Independent Psychiatric Exam. The fact that Rev. Bennett had one just two days earlier was not told to the Court. That was March 6th. This Independent Exam was not done for another 10 days after Robert was forced back into the hospital and not until 10 days after he was given a slew of drugs which could have destroyed the success of his brain surgery especially since many were blood thinners or acted by thinning the blood. Who did that “Independent Exam”, Dr. Rebecca Warner, the psychiatrist who signed off on the Section 12 which first allowed the police into Rev. Bennetts life in such a negative way. She signed off on something that serious on a man she didn’t know, never met, never examined. etc.

One thing struck us hard. While these Court hearings were going on with the attorneys explaining to the judge why Robert was indigent and could not be present because he wasn’t physically able to be there – too old and too sick – where was Robert Bennett? He was in a store in Harvard Square he and his wife had walked to from their home to get out for sunshine and to get what happened the day before out of their minds. They met friends, laughed and talked, sat by the river in the sun and then walked home.

We do have proof of that from people who saw them over that day and time gave us statements.

That is quite a contrast to what the SCES, their attorney and the Court Appointed Attorney were trying to picture so they could get from the Court what they wanted and needed for what we believe is a conspiracy to “incapacitate” Rev. Bennett, drain his assets by shoving him into a nursing home, keeping him restrained so he stays “incapacitated”, etc.

This Court Order went on to say Robert had no one else to care for him; he had no place else to go; he was indigent and needed state appointed lawyers; but mostly needed to be immediately extracted from his home, wife and family because of imminent danger to his health that staying in that home would cause. At the time Robert’s adult children were at Robert’s home. That information was kept from the Court.

The police knew Robert Bennett was not alone because as soon as they arrived neighbors started to arrive at the house to see what was wrong and how they could help.

How did it come to that point?

  1. Protective Services went to Court and claimed in Court under oath that Robert was indigent. Step one of the pattern for Protective Services and others to gain control over Robert
  2. The attorney appointed by the Court without Robert or his family’s knowledge or consent was being paid for by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts because SCES claimed Robert was indigent. Step two of the pattern. That gave them control over everything and they clearly abused that control.
  3. That Court appointed attorney submitted a motion to the court which claimed it was from Robert Bennett and in that motion he was swearing that he was indigent and needed State money for an attorney to help him. They also had this fictional Robert swearing to the fact that his wife abused him.
  4. The motion – also claiming at the end to be “Respectfully submitted by Robert Bennett”, in fact was submitted by the Court appointed attorney who had never met Robert, never talked to him, etc. On the line where one would sign such a document, it was blank. Robert Bennett had not signed the document he knew nothing about. The attorney Cheri Myette signed under Robert Bennett’s name. Were they trying to get this through by convincing the Court that Robert Bennett couldn’t read, write, understand anything? That is how he was characterized throughout the Court hearing and the Judge, having much surfacing to cause questions, ignored it all and went with the Protective Services attorneys and the attorney Court appointed to represent Robert Bennett. Since when in this country can a Court appoint an attorney to represent someone who can speak, sign, etc. for themselves and that attorney can run around claiming to represent a person with whom they have no contact.
  5. Neither Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services nor Robert’s Court appointed attorney told the Court they had used the police to extract Robert from his home on March 3rd. They did not tell the Court their effort to take Robert out of his home for Mental Health reasons failed. They claimed then Robert was the problem and he needed psychiatric help. Since that didn’t work for them they decided to slander Robert’s wife and claim she was the reason they had to extract Robert from his home twice within as many days.
  6. Neither Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services nor Robert’s Court appointed attorney told the Court they had been in Court for an emergency motion ex parte on March 5th and had been turned down by the judge who said the other party had to be notified.
  7. Both Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services kept from the Court the fact that they had not notified Robert of the hearing, nor allowed him to be represented by his own attorneys, etc.
  8. They had two hearings with Judge Langlois who turned them down and refused to give them a Protective Order so they found a judge who would work with them to Robert’s detriment.
  9. On March 5th the judge Langlois appointed an attorney for Robert Bennett. Not a particular attorney, but one goes to the state agency that provides such and funds such to get an attorney.
  10. CSCP, The agency that takes money from the state to fund such attorney requests claims that when such happens in the Court they make the next attorney on the list available. When we called to ask about the process we were told that rule was inviolable. They never jump the list. Whoever is next on the list is who serves as the persons attorney. That turned out to be a pile of crap.
  11. On March 5th SCES by-passed protocol and procedures and CSCP and directly contacted Cheri Myette and asked if she would serve as Robert’s attorney. She agreed. So the list was jumped.
  12. On March 5th she submitted her motion to the Court claiming to represent Robert Bennett without contacting Robert Bennett. The judges specifically said Robert Bennett should be contacted to have knowledge of these events. That meant nothing. He was not contacted. He couldn’t be for this conspiracy to work. They appeared and spoke for him in his name and more.
  13. On March 5th there was a hearing during which Robert Bennett was represented as not only being “indigent”, but also not in Court because he was too ill and out of it to be present. The Court appointed attorney for Robert declared to the Court that she had notified him she was his attorney and appeared in Court on his behalf because he was unable to function physically or otherwise. She also filed a motion, heard on March 6th, asking the Court to approve $2,000 for an “Independent Psychiatric Exam” because Robert was indigent and couldn’t afford to pay for one. Again Rev. Bennett’s signature is not on that motion.
  14. As we outlined above, Rev. Bennett, at the same time they were in Court representing him as unable to function, physically or otherwise, he was in Harvard Square with his wife enjoying the day laughing and talking with friends.
  15. The Court gave its permission to forcibly remove Robert Bennett from his home and on March 6th that happened and Robert was kept out of his home for five weeks while his wife hired attorneys and fought what happened to Rev. Bennett. They are still fighting those battles, but at least this time they are fighting it together.
  16. She hired two law firms – one to represent Rev. Bennett and one to represent her. This was done just days after Rev. Bennett was shoved into MGH by the police. SCES claimed Robert was indigent and could not afford to hire lawyers. Isn’t that lying to take State money to pay for an attorney when it is actually to promote and move what we believe is the criminal conspiracy down the road? Aren’t there state penalties for such? Since the state knows about this and has chosen to ignore it – what does that say about Massachusetts and how it treats African Americans, especially the elderly?
  17. The two law firms wound up representing Marceline because they could not represent Robert Bennett. The Court appointed attorney who Robert Bennett did not want and who he never met or talked to even through to the end of this action – stayed. And what is it called to take state money for an Independent Psychiatric Exam just two days after an Independent Exam by reputable people in a reputable institution had already been done? And to have the “Independent Examiner” – Dr. Rebecca Warner – be the person who started this in the first place. And to use that money and the state to perpetrate and move forward what we think has all the signs of a criminal conspiracy. The role state money plays in this is crucial. How it is used to create this travesty through the Court system is horrendous and has been going on for quite some time.
  18. Robert Bennett was forced into MGH against his will; without having had a hearing of which he was notified. He was not allowed to be represented by his own attorneys. He was not even allowed to know there was a hearing going on whose purpose it was to take away his freedom, destroy his health and drain his assets. The ultimate goal was to declare him under the guardianship of the Jewish Agency for Family and Children in which the attorney representing SCES has a major interest. To do that, Robert needed to be declared indigent, ‘incapacitated’, needing care with no one to care for him. They had a way to accomplish that – slick.
  19. SCES carried on this charade of lies before the Court pretending that Robert Bennett had been notified so they could maintain that the ex parte hearing held to get the police to take Robert out of his home was actually a hearing of which Rev. Bennett knew about, agreed to and provided information for the motion Attorney Myette produced within a short time of having been appointed his attorney by SCES after the Court authorized a Court Appointed attorney for a so-called indigent person.
  20. None of these folks were interested in the welfare of Rev. Bennett. Their interests, which unveiled as this went on, were about their careers, their program, the program they were trying to get established in Mount Auburn Hospital apparently using Robert Bennett’s life to help their career and program goals. How do we know this? To do something like this – it is the end of a process where the agency has been involved with the family, etc. SCES did this without ever having met Rev. Bennett; knowing nothing about his family – his history – his home – not even knowing if he had any history of mental illness or anything close. They just pushed into this family and used the Court and the Police to take it over. Whatever human pain and suffering they caused was really not their concern.
  21. While in MGH Rev. Bennett was forced daily to take anti-psychotics, blood thinners (after brain surgery), high blood pressure pills when his blood pressure was normal, hallucinatory drugs, and about 8 to 10 other drugs for five weeks.
  22. Dr. Warner showed up, leaving Mount Auburn Hospital for MGH, after Rev. Bennett was forced onto this drug regimen for 10 days before her visit, to give him an “Independent Psychiatric Exam”.
  23. Rev. Bennett had already been given one at MGH during his first forced visit, but that didn’t matter to Dr. Warner. The state was charged $2,000 which was paid to Dr. Warner for this visit. This visit happened 10 days after Rev. Bennett was shoved into MGH against his will and 10 days after he was started on these medications. If you want a diagnosis of “incapacitated” this is some of what you have to do to get it.
  24. She declared Rev. Bennett “incapacitated” and the description is horrifying – no ability to think for himself, etc. A description we have read which was given to others who were put through the same trauma. Some left the state because they were afraid of being picked up again for no reason and shoved into some other institution. Some died.
  25. Mount Auburn and MGH are not the only hospitals used as such.
  26. The people doing the using aren’t worried about money. They charge all of this to the insurance of the person they are trying to destroy.
  27. How else can you ‘incapacitate someone, especially someone over 80?Rev. Bennett was forced to stay in bed 24/7 in a very small space in the corner of a room with hospital equipment not being used, but stored in his small 7′ by 9’ space with no access to sun, windows, etc. no visitors allowed and no telephone calls allowed.
  28. He could move from his bed to the chair next to his bed but the space was so small the arm of the chair hit the bed on one side with the other arm hitting the wall.
  29. Both his bed and the chair were alarmed so if he moved or tried to get up out of either one, he would be heard and forced back into the bed. That went on for five weeks.
  30. The time over which that went on was COVID-19 time and MGH was closed because of that – and Robert Bennett was closed in with the virus running amuck when he did not have to be and should not have been so incarcerated against his will.
  31. His wife was not allowed to visit. She had to make an appointment – could only visit between 11am and 1:30pm – could only stay 30 minutes – and had to be accompanied by a policeman and hospital security during the entire visit. In actual fact, she was allowed to visit only three times over his stay because he was “busy”; they claimed he “had taken out a restraining order against her and he didn’t want to see her” – that wasn’t true; a Security Guard threatened to physically throw her out of the hospital if she didn’t leave because she wasn’t wanted there – in response to her trying to see her husband.
  32. When they were finally able to get Rev. Bennett released he was forced to be under the care of a Home Health Care Service to maintain the regimen of keeping him in bed on an alarm blanket; forcing him to take the medicines listed above; and much more.
  33. During the process of his release at home he was sexually abused by one of the women who visited – during the pandemic – from the Home Health Care Service, a service neither Robert nor his wife could choose, but was chosen for them by SCES. They had to allow the Home Health Care people into the house daily – more than one person a day during COVID-19 – they had to watch while Robert took the above medicines and a lot more.
  34. Those conditions were dictated by SCES.
  35. Much more happened, but that gives you an idea of what we have been up against. If you have questions, email.

We had no idea the elderly were being so badly treated. It is true in Massachusetts all over the state. It is also true across the country.

This starts by claiming a mental health issue. With that claim the police can be called and the service which takes over takes carte blanche over the patient. The Courts don’t seem interested which makes one wonder if they are also involved in this charade which from our view is a conspiracy. It has happened to more than one person and the people we know about are Jews, African Americans, immigrants, Latina’s and more.

The bigotry is stark. This leads to the assets of the elderly being drained so the next generation inherits nothing and their chances for success are seriously limited.

It is claimed this apparent conspiracy came from people who were concerned about the way immigrants came to this country and in short order took over. Dealing with the ‘undesirables’ to limit them and others like them from having any influence in this country, as the story goes, this criminal conspiracy was developed. It has received quick accceptance because the money and assets one can grift off of these situations is amazingly large.

When Rev. Bennett was finally released from Massachusetts General Hospital he looked as though he had just been released from a Concentration Camp and that is no exaggeration.

Donaldson/Bennetts Thank Mary Jo Frug for her Sacrifice. The condition of the Court shows clearly why she was murdered.

Thursday, January 21st, 2021

Today, we are out of Probate Court, however, as we prepare for the next step – which is a law suit against those who so egregiously and greedily did everything they could to destroy the life, health and wealth of the Donaldson/Bennett family – we are going over every detail and am amazed at how law suits are structured. Much information that we can now use has come to us belatedly and almost fell out of the sky. Apparently, that is why many lawyers wait before filing because they want to make sure they are in the best possible position.

When we do file, it will not be in Probate Court because the issues are not the same. What happened in Probate Court pretty much makes up the facts of the matter.

Because our experience was so bad, we started to research Probate Court and are stunned with what we are finding.

First up – Probate Court. This is a Court with an unbelievably ugly, vicious, sordid history. Probate Court was primarily a way to deal with legal issues in the slave trade. When slavery was abolished, Probate Court had an institutional structure which moved its way of dealing with slavery, slaves and all those related issues out of slavery – now abolished (supposedly) – into the larger society. Probate Court is an equity Court and commits horrendous abuses against the most vulnerable in society. From our experience, one major way this is done is through the very loose way Probate Court deals with the Defendants – the elderly, the most vulnerable people in society, those without family but assets and more. It is a place to control, defeat, drain the assets, life, health and more from minorities.

Our interest here is the elderly. Because of what we went through we wanted to do some investigation to discover what happened? Why? And we did discover that our experience is shared with many minorities. For example, the African American sisters who lost their jobs because attorneys and, of course, the Elder and Protective Services people accused them of abusing their grandfather. That was not true, but truth was irrelevant.

What struck us about what they went through was that it was almost a carbon copy of what happened with us – and because of the same people.

Let us summarize here what happened with Rev. Dr. Bennett and Marceline Donaldson pointing out for you the most horrible things that happened and you will see how the Probate Court operates to back up and allow people to be stripped of everything while those involved with the Court on a professional level go away “fat and happy.”

How did this start?n Just a conjecture, but if you read Bettina Network’s Blog you will see many who would like to see those who write, distribute, keep the Blog going to just disappear. We have had many instances of such, but we endured them and moved along. We did the same thing with this Probate Court issue, but like a dog with a bone we are not letting go. We will continue to research, support others and do what we can to expose and bring about positive change in this area.

The Donaldson/Bennett sage started with Nora Al Wet-aid writing a document which she swore to and gave to Attorney James O’Sullivan, who is the attorney for many of the Protective Services in Massachusetts.

Her sworn document is full of lies from beginning to end. The Probate Court, however, immediately impounded Ms. Al Wet-aid’s document so others – like the Donaldson/Bennetts would not know of its existence.

Fortunately, someone put the document through the mail slot at the Donaldson/Bennett home so they discovered its existence and were appalled. Especially with all of the lies contained therein. For example, Ms. Al Wet-aid said Rev. Dr. Bennett was ill with prostate cancer for which he was being treated. The Fact: Rev. Dr. Bennett has not even been tested for Prostate cancer because no one saw a need to do that. With a new doctor it is clear that past history was correct – Rev. Dr. Bennett does not have prostate cancer, has never had prostate cancer and has never been treated for it.

Ms. Al Wet-aid put together several such false statements like the above. When challenged and when the Bennett Donaldsons asked the Court and the District Attorney to investigate that statement for purgery – silence, ignoring, nothing.

The psychiatrist, Dr. Rebecca Warner, was especially culpable in all of this and in spite of that being raised with the Court nothing came of her nefarious activities.

She is the one who signed out a Section 12 against Dr. Bennett without knowing him, without ever having met him, without ever having examined him. That happened because Ms. Al Wet-aid was quite insistent that this was an emergency situation which needed that kind of action immediately. So Dr. Warner violated her oath and any good sense she may have had and had the police pick up Dr. Bennett at his home and forced him into the psych ward of MGH. Her attempt was to have Dr. Bennett forced into the psych ward of Mount Auburn Hospital where she practices, but that was fouled by Ms. Donaldson who could not understand any of this, but particularly why a man, out of the hospital from surgery only a couple days would be forced into a strange hospital he didn’t know, had no records, no treatment, no reason to be forced into this strange place. Especially startling for both Ms. Donaldson and Dr. Bennett they knew Mount Auburn Hospital as a place they would prefer to die on the street in front of the hospital rather than be admitted into Mount Auburn Hospital for treatment. Especially, as a minister, knowing and having heard of their psych ward manipulations they were stricken that this is the place where the police were going to force Dr. Bennett against his will, so in their only act of humanity during the entire ordeal the police agreed to take Dr. Bennett to MGH instead.

He was discharged from MGH within hours after an independent psychiatric exam which said there was no reason for him to have been picked up, forced into MGH, especially into the psych emergency rooms.

He was discharged without medicines prescribed, etc.

Nora Al Wet-aid and Angela Clary brought Somerville Cambridge Protective Services back into the lives of the Donaldson/Bennett’s the very next day. They were, apparently, furious that their scheme to take over this family, their health, wealth and more did not work.

Enter the Probate Court: They had their attorney – Mr. O’Sullivan – file an ’emergency motion’ without Dr. Bennett or Ms. Donaldson’s knowledge to get Protective Orders over Dr. Bennett and more. They made sure the Court did not know this did not fit the qualifications to be an ’emergency motion’ since there clearly was no emergency.

To make sure their ’emergency motion’ succeeded they declared Dr. Bennett ‘indigent’ and of course let the Court know he was African American and with no one to care for him so he needed immediate removal from his home by the police.

Being described – under oath – as ‘indigent’ Dr. Bennett was, at that point totally vulnerable. Ms. Al Wet-aid and the attorney for Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services now had an open door to do whatever they wanted with Dr. Bennett’s life.

Ms. Al Wet-aid, by going around MGH ‘conspiring’ with others – doctors, nurses, social service people and more – she told a story which made them do things they should not have done. She described Dr. Bennett’s wife as a very abusive woman and how dangerous being in the same house with her was for Dr. Bennett. Many fell under her spell as she spun that story and it became stronger and stronger the more she told it.

It was a total lie, however, racism comes strongly into play here. Whites believe whites and when someone claims to be looking out for the best for this pathetic, ill, old and abused African American man – well many did what she asked without a thought or a question.

The Court, however, refused the ’emergency motion’ and said it could not do such without the person represented – so the Court appointed an attorney (at the expense of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts using its CPSC organization). So now the plot thickens and the fix is in.

Ms. Al Wet-aid with attorney O’Sullivan representing Somerville Cambridge Protective services simply went back to court – on the same day, March 5th – again with an ’emergency motion’, however, this time things had changed and they were now in the drivers seat. They went back to Court, but they went back to another judge. They did not go back to the judge who appointed Attorney Myette during an ex-parte hearing – fresh judge without knowledge of what happened that day in front of another judge was needed and they found one.

That judge asked Attorney Myette if she had time, before the scheduled motion, to contact her (new) client to get to know the case, his wishes, etc. Attorney Myette said ‘yes”, but she already had and within a very short time – like minutes – filed a bogus motion to back-up Ms. Al Wet-aid whose goal was to force Dr. Bennett from his home for the second time in two days. A man just out of the hospital after brain surgery and a man they had forced into a rehab place which was under quarantine for the flu.

Having stolen Dr. Bennett’s right to be notified of a court hearing against him and having taken away from him his right to hire an attorney of his choosing, they now had a very cooperative attorney, but one who was cooperating with Protective Services, Ms. Al Wet-aid and Attorney O’Sullivan – but appointed by the Court to represent Dr. Bennett. At this point if you were an intelligent fly on the wall you would realize quickly that Dr. Bennett didn’t stand a chance in this situation. They had set up their case so it would move smoothly. Move smoothly to where? – taking over Dr. Bennett’s health, wealth, his body and the end of his life making it extremely miserable, which they did very effectively and Dr. Bennett was not the first elderly African American man so treated.

Ms. Cheri Myette is the attorney so appointed. She filed a motion with the Court in which she claimed the motion was “Respectfully submitted by Robert Bennett”. Dr. Bennett had never seen, did not know, had never spoken to Attorney Myette. We believe that filing is part of a “criminal conspiracy” and that filing was needed to win and to be able to drain the resources of this person they so cruelly treated.

At that point Robert Bennett still did not know about this action; did not know about the ’emergency motion’, was at home enjoying the company of his wife and adult children completely unaware of any of this. His family and his wife were also unaware of what was transpiring in Court.

Attorney Myette was appointed by the Court on March 5th and within an hour she had filed this bogus motion. She had Dr. Bennett quoted as saying in this motion that he was swearing to being ‘destitute’; and swearing that he was the victim of elder abuse by his wife, etc.

What was actually happening with this man described as “destitute” – “abused” alone in a house with his abusive wife with no place else to go? He was having a candlelight dinner which he and his family spent the day cooking and which he could not enjoy. Not only could he not enjoy his dinner that night, but he had nothing to eat at all – all of these people so concerned including the hospital ignored the fact that this man was hungry and cheated out of a beautiful meal he helped cook because of the greed and power hunger of those now going after him to “help him? Their help got worse than just missing a meal for Dr. Bennett.

This new filing to send police pushing into Dr. Bennett’s home apparently threatening everyone with everything was filed to back-up Ms. Al Wet-aid and Attorney O’Sullivan. And it was Mr. O’Sullivans suggestion that Attorney Myette be hired and, of course, paid out of Massachusetts State funds. That violated CPSE’s guidelines – the next attorney on the list gets appointed. Wonder who that would have been? Wonder if those attorneys on the list know about this little bit of jump the list thing that happens? Would they be interested in jumping the list if the only thing they had to do was compromise their ethics, etc?

As we investigate, this was not Attorney Myette’s first time in such a position.

What was the point? Read on —-

The police arrived at Dr. Bennett’s home for the second time in a couple days to force him, once again, into MGH. This time he was kept for five weeks. During that time his wife was threatened by Attorney O’Sullivan as to what would happen to Dr. Bennett if she did not apply for Mass Health. Apparently, Mass Health is involved up to its neck in these things. Get involved – pay the bills – file liens – do horrendous things to attempt to collect a persons’ lifetime asset accumulation.

Surprise! Another institutional structure added to the mix.

She refused. They refused to let him out of the hospital. They didn’t have to actually get the Mass Health Insurance, they just had to apply. Why? It seems to us, looking into Mass Health, – that institution produces a map to the assets to whoever applies. Armed with that blueprint supplied by the application of the Donaldson/Bennett’s to Mass Health look at how easy it would have been for folks to just wipe them out, quickly. Otherwise, the application made no sense since the Donaldson/Bennett’s did not qualify for Mass Health according to our look at their qualification requirements. Surely, the “Protective Services” people knew that before they demanded the Donaldson/Bennett’s apply.

They did have more work to do destroying Dr. Bennett’s health to make sure they had left nothing undone so they could easily achieve their goal – and they were good at making a human being miserable, suffering in pain, strip them of their mobility soonest and so much more.

What was their goal? To put Dr. Bennett into a “skilled” nursing home; under constraints; fed anti-psychotics for life; not allowed out of bed; and drain his assets spending them like drunken soldiers.

In the process they committed what we believe is Medicare Fraud and is what is happening to attempt to destroy people like Dr. Bennett, raise the premiums on Medicare because of this horrible abuse of the program – which probably amounts to Medicare fraud – and more.

How were they going to do that?

Re-enter Dr. Rebecca Warner. The psychiatrist who signed out the Section 12 against Dr. Bennett which was ‘lifted’ by MGH after an Independent psychiatric exam. The only “Independent Exam” he received. So, Dr. Warner was “outed’ from day one – however that stopped no-one – just ignore that little inconvenience, no one will notice. Drug Dr. Bennett – keep him in bed 24/7 – and more and Dr. Warner could make the findings they needed.

She arrived after her co-conspirators had notified the state that they needed $2,000 to pay Dr. Warner for this “Independent Exam”. Which the state paid. CPSC paid from the money it apparently receives from the state and they paid in spite of knowing -before they paid – that this was a “hoax” for personal gain of the many involved.

That was amazing because two complaints were filed against all parties with the CPSC which doles out free attorneys to such groups, etc. and not one was even acknowledged let alone responded to. One response which we didn’t consider a response was that – “indigent” can mean different things and CPSC interpreted “indigent” in Dr. Bennett’s case to mean he was not destitute, but could not afford to pay an attorney.

That response came out after Dr. Bennett had hired and paid the retainer for two legal firms to represent him and Ms. Donaldson and the Court would not remove Attorney Myette – the Court appointed attorney – so the attorneys hired and paid by Dr. Bennett and his family could represent him.

Cute huh?

Those attorneys apparently did not have the same motivation to lie that Attorney Myette did? Although, let us not give those attorneys a clean bill of health because – as it turned out – they were all working together to manipulate the Court so Dr. Bennett would be put under the Guardianship of a Guardianship Corporation who would take over his assets and make any and all decisions for him – removing his family spend down his assets and so much more. Auschwitz for the elderly.

At that point, it became very clear why they needed to accuse Ms. Donaldson of elder abuse. She is his wife and why does he need to be taken over by a Guardianship Corporation when his wife took very good care of him as he did of her. His wife was in very good health – at 83 years old and not even high blood pressure.

If his wife was not accused of elder abuse – as she was with no proof except from Ms. Nora Al Wet-aid with what we believe was her purged statement and the bogus motion from his Court appointed attorney what was the point of all of this. Now, with this elder abuse claim they could also attempt to dig into and spend the wife’s assets in the name of all of these lies.

Back to the psychiatrist Dr. Warner. She turned up at MGH although she is affiliated with Mount Auburn Hospital to do an “Independent Exam” of Dr. Bennett – paid for by the State. She needed to do this to satisfy the laws of Massachusetts which said such was needed before you took away someone’s rights. The fact that she started all of this still had her claiming to do an “Independent Exam”.

Well – starting from the time Dr. Bennett was admitted to MGH against his will and against the will of his family; forced into MGH with really no reason for such; Dr. Bennett was fed anti-psychotics, hallucinatory drugs, anti-seizure medications, blood thinners after brain surgery, plus 10 more pills daily for the entire 5 weeks he was in MGH against his will.

He was not admitted this second time for medical reasons. He was forced into MGH this second time because Nora Al Wet-aid, using Attorney O-Sullivan and Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services and Probate Court claimed Dr. Bennett was in a dangerous situation with his wife being extremely abusive and they had to get him out of his house immediately because she was refusing to let him take his “prescribed” medicines, which did not exist because there were no “prescribed” medicines. He was also in drastic shape, according to Ms. Al Wet-aid because of this abusive wife and he had no family, no place to go so the police had to step in – take him out of his home and force him into MGH’s psych ward.

No medicines were “prescribed” according to the discharge papers for Dr. Bennett – so Ms. Al Wet-aid was claiming Dr. Bennett’s wife was abusive because she refused to feed him “prescribed” medicines which is reality had not been “prescribed”

So, to start forcing Dr. Bennett to take anti-psychotics, hallucinatory drugs, anti-seizure medications which the neurologist who headed the team for his surgery said he should not receive for more than 7 days after the surgery or damage could be done to his brain, plus blood thinners and the 10 other drugs he was also forced to take against his will – that force feeding of pills had a reason. “Incapacitate” him.

10 days after Dr. Bennett was admitted to MGH and 10 days after he was forced to take these pills, Dr. Warner showed up to do her “Independent Exam”. They needed time for the pills being fed to Dr. Bennett to work their ‘magic’? Her conclusion was that Dr. Bennett was “incapacitated” and her recommendation was that he be discharged into a “community”. There he could live happily ever after – and sure enough a motion was filed by SCES asking the Court to send Dr. Bennett to a skilled nursing home and put him under the care of the guardianship corporation in which Attorney O’Sullivan has a major interest.

Is the picture becoming clear?

There is a lot more to it than we have outlined, but we wanted to give you an idea as to what the elderly and their families are up against. Dr. Bennett has a very large, very caring family. His wife set up a program in their home with ‘experts’ in their field to take care of Dr. Bennett. SCES and a their helpers didn’t care about that – that would not return money to them.

The fraud – cheating – lying to the Court – and so much more to get hold of an elderly persons assets to drain them into the pockets of those who put together what we consider a criminal conspiracy was the goal.

Oh! And as a postscript. Dr. Bennett was sexually abused in this process.

His family reported the abuse to the Massachusetts District Attorney and she didn’t bother to investigate. In fact, she didn’t even bother to contact the witnesses.

Every right Dr. Bennett and his family have was violated in this process as though they were living in a country where this kind of abuse by a group like Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services can strip others of their assets and move along enjoying the fruits of someone else’s labor.

We also discovered one reason some people allow themselves to get involved in such ‘criminal conspiracies’. Extreme bigotry!!!! It handicaps the next generation of the family of people so destroyed as they tried to destroy Dr. Bennett.

Take his assets and his children would have less. They would not be as able to move ahead in this society as they would be if they inherited their share of Dr. Bennett’s assets. Do this with as many minorities as possible and you have a part of the maintenance of a structure riddled with bigotry in tact with those doing the “dirty work” richly rewarded.

As we have found, this has happened to African Americans, Jews, Latina’s, especially immigrants and more.

It is time for you to start caring about what is happening to the elderly in this country. You might be next because you will certainly be one of the elderly soon. Dr. Bennett and his wife had no idea this would or could happen to them.

Senator Danforth – Episcopal Priest – White //// Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett – Episcopal Priest – Black “A democracy for white Americans, but simultaneously a dictatorship over black Americans.”— MLK

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021

Part two of a series: – Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett – black Episcopal priest

You and we have seen the power of one Episcopal priest – white. He was able to subvert the democratic process by using money and power. Not the power inherent in why he was called to the ordained priesthood nor giving a thought to what God was calling him to do.

Using his earthly power and money he did his own thing. Something that would bring him – Senator Danforth – more power and money and earthly prestige rather than something that would help bring in God’s kingdom on this earth.

He brought us one Josh Hawley. A man who did what he thought he was called to do, subverting and attempting to destroy American democracy. Senator Hawley saw himself, with the blessing of his backers, as being the one to lead the charge calling Americans to overturn a legitimate election for president of these United States and put a fascist, authoritarian government in its place. He was, after all, backed by the aristocracy of these United States. He was close to the powers which put Donald Trump into office as United States President.

Hawley has been living an autocrat’s dream and the nightmare of those who choose to live under a democratic government. Backed by One who used the money and power he inherited ( Senator Danforth) to help install a government more in tune to corporate America’s need for an authoritarian government which could subvert, overturn, patronize and so much more the lives of the people it needs to produce and carry to fruition its programs, projects, products and/or services.

Before there was a Josh Hawley to spend time, money and other resources on, for Senator Danforth there was a Clarence Thomas and probably even more. Clarence Thomas is a man who many believe should never have been confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice, but who was with the advice, consent, power and money of the Rev. Senator Danforth.

Clarence Thomas, a black man, widely disrespected in the African American community and even more so amongst many white Americans. By manipulating the system the way only one with power and money can manipulate, the objections to Clarence Thomas were cast aside. The people who could have shed more light onto who he was and his character were not allowed to testify in the hearing at which Anita Hill was allowed to testify and then nothing. Senator Danforth’s inability to see those he is moving to a more powerful place in the light of who they are and what they might contribute to or destroy the society over which he is majorly responsible for placing them carries a lot of negative weight for what he has done for and with Hawley and Thomas.

Thomas is a man whose wife recently sent her love to the insurrectionists of January 6, 2021 during their time of uprising against the government her husband serves as a Supreme Court Justice. The insurrectionists who tried to destroy democracy along with its Capitol buildings. Insurrectionists she has been encouraging and supporting for quite some years.

Clarence Thomas cannot be so above board with his actions, but he clearly supports his wife. As a Supreme Court justice, what does it mean when his wife goes the distance and sponsors 80 buses to transport those who were a part of the “Save America” rally on January 6, 2021. The Thomas family aided and abetted those trying to overthrow a legitimate United States election in favor of putting in place a government which was, apparently, not legitimate from its beginnings, but which had philosophies, beliefs, actions of which Virginia Thomas approved and for which she spends a great deal of time publicly backing. I think it can be safely said and by his own admission that Clarence Thomas is now a Supreme Court justice thanks to Senator Danforth – white Episcopal priest.

Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett – black Episcopal priest – is the other American side of that story. The side on which he is vulnerable to white Americans who feel they can obliterate African Americans who step out of their place and have institutionalized ways to establish a dictatorship over even in 2020 and even in places like Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts. Cities which constantly brag about their ‘openness’ and where Black Lives do not matter – especially those of consequence; those that dare criticize white Americans in power positions; those that are not subservient to the autocracy. In fact, many believe Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts are among the most racist cities in these United States.

We recently wrote many Bettina Network articles about what was happening to Dr. Bennett. We wanted everything to be public because we were taken off-guard by the way he and his wife were attacked and having had decades of civil rights experience we knew where those attacks were headed from the day Rev. Dr. Bennett, after brain surgery at MGH, was forced into Sherrill House against his will when he was told places like Spaulding Rehabilitation Center were not open to him and he had no choice.

After his discharge from MGH, Dr. Bennett and his wife were told an ambulance was going to immediately take him to Sherrill House. Neither Rev. Bennett nor his wife, Marceline Donaldson – who was his Health Care Proxy – had a choice in the matter. What was the problem? Two fold -Sherrill House was under quarantine for the flu at the time and they did not know about that and were not told Rev. Bennett was being sent to a rehab center after brain surgery which was under flu quarantine. When, having arrived at Sherrill House and they discovered the quarantine and they complained there was no doctor available. Not physically present nor available via telephone or other communication possibilities. So their choice was to go home where they had a set up which was far superior to what they were exposed to at Sherrill House.

What they discovered through that experience were the racial discrepancies between Sherrill house and Spaulding. Once you turn from Huntington Avenue into Jamaica Plain the medical institutions mostly turn from white to brown to black.

A black man – a black family which did not choose Sherrill House as a place for rehab was forced into that institution and told Spaulding Rehabilitation Center was not where they could go. When they checked, there was space available so what was the problem. No one ever said, however, their investigation showed a clear color problem.

That was not the first nor the last such situation with which Rev. Dr. Bennett and his family had to deal during some very difficult times in their lives. Because Dr. Bennett needed brain surgery, it was as though the society had gone crazy with glee over being able to be the dictators over this African American man and his family. Because Dr. Bennett needed surgery, he was exposed to the worse and discovered there were other elderly African Americans who had and were going through very similar situations with no help and had to face the overwhelming and very racist power of “Protective Services” in Massachusetts. This was supposed to be an organization to aid the elderly in need. In fact, it is an organization which pushed into families that do not need nor want their help.

Actually, elderly and protective services is out of control and their racism, sexism, sins against immigrants virulent and long standing. It is instead becoming the means of making the minority elderly vulnerable to many health care institutions with no choice of any kind as they enter or are pushed into this world. Most often their assets are drained and redistributed into the white community so the minorities die with a life of hard work spent accumulating assets for their children to have better and more comfortable lives taken away and given to the white establishment – the white autocracy/aristocracy with many in the middle to upper classes assisting, most without even realizing the damage being done and not interested.

That was the first in many steps to drag down and attempt to destroy the end of life of a man who achieved and received a Harvard University Doctorate; had a life of service to the Episcopal Church; taught in its seminaries; taught as an adjunct professor at Princeton University, Atlanta University and several more. A man who served on the National Council of Churches Lectionary Committee using his work and study to help edit scripture to make it more available to both sexes. Well, maybe that wasn’t so good since the FBI had to intervene at that point because the members of that committee received death threats – through the National Council as well as at their homes. The minorities we have heard from or heard about include African Americans, Jews, Latina’s, Immigrants, and more.

We could go on for pages with how Dr. Bennett spent his life, but that is all well documented. We are outlining here the way this society tried to strip him of the quality of his life, making horrible the end of his life, his assets, his reputation and so much more. Who? Which institutions? The Commonwealth of Massachusetts through its Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services. Particularly its ‘Protective Services”

Recently, they were dubbed #1 in the state. That was not even surprising to us because we knew the forces which support such institutions would be coming to their assistance to try to drown out what Dr. Bennett and his wife were exposing.

The real “tell” of what was in store for Dr. Bennett happened when 8 white Cambridge police arrived at Dr. Bennett’s home demanding to remove him from his home to put him into the psych ward at Mount Auburn Hospital. Besides the eight white policemen there were TWO ambulances, five or six EMT’s and assorted people. No one knew where all the people were coming from until a neighbor of the Donaldson-Bennett family saw and talked about all the attention the police and their coterie were receiving as people came running from the Charles River to see what was happening with all the police and people and police cars parked and left in the middle of the street around the Bennett/Donaldson home.

The police arrived to force Dr. Bennett into the Mount Auburn Hospital psych ward. He was just a couple days out of MGH after brain surgery and had no relationship to Mount Auburn Hospital. He had a very low opinion of Mount Auburn Hospital, had expressed his concern for the racism he knew about as a minister. His family insisted that if he had to go someplace it be to the hospital he left just days earlier. After some back and forth the police agreed. They did not, however, arrive with any Court papers to back up their demands. After quite awhile and with Marceline Donaldsons’ insistence they produced such a paper which was a Section 12 – used by the police to hospitalize people who have had too much to drink and were a public nuisance; people who overdosed on drugs; people having a psychiatric break of some kind and are endangering the public, etc.

Rev. Dr. Bennett did not fit any of those categories. In fact, once in MGH having been forced into the psych ward after leaving days earlier having been discharged from the Neurology Department and having undergone the indignity of having been examined against his will by one of the MGH psychiatrists, Dr. Bennett was found to be someone who should not have been so treated. They saw no reason for his having been picked up and forced into the hospital in the first place. No medicines prescribed no reason for his having been forced into MGH nor did they find any reason to keep him. So the Section 12 was lifted and Dr. Bennett was sent home.

Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services are the group – the state agency which signed out the Section 12 against Dr. Bennett. No one at that agency knew Dr. Bennett – no one there had ever interviewed him – no one had any kind of relationship with him of any kind. They would not have known him if they passed him on the street.

Dr. Rebecca Warner, the psychiatrist who had Dr. Bennett so “committed” said on the papers she signed to send him to the hospital with which she was affiliated – Mount Auburn Hospital – where several African Americans have complained of their very racist treatment – that she did not know Dr. Bennett, had never met him, had never examined him, had never been to his home – but she claimed his home was ‘not safe’. So much for medical ethics and why does she still have a license to practice?

After Dr. Bennett was released from MGH it is as if enormous anger broke out amongst the people at Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services. Who did he think he was, after all. And then the fun started.

Attorney James O’Sullivan, who was given an award by the Archbishop O’Malley for the great work he supposedly does amongst the poor, especially the poor elderly, was in Court the very next day with an “emergency motion.” As we did research on Attorney O’Sullivan and the award he was given we discovered that the last recipient was ex-Attorney General Bill Barr. There is something wrong in the Diocese that this is the case, especially with the elderly because much suffering has happened and been condoned by Archbishop O’Malley with such an award.

O’Sullivan is actually someone known to use and from this experience abuse “emergency motions”. He asked the Court not to notify Dr. Bennett of the hearing, claimed he was not capable of participating, claimed Dr. Bennett was “indigent” and asked for “Protective Orders” so Dr. Bennett would not be further hurt, etc. Attorney O’Sullivan was acting on behalf of his clients, but he had never met Dr. Bennett nor his wife nor his adult children yet he talked knowingly about someone he was asking the Court to forcibly remove from his home and family and put into a psych ward for reasons not even clearly spelled out in Court.

The “Protective Orders’ were against Dr. Bennett’s wife who Attorney O’Sullivan claimed was abusive to Dr. Bennett and because of that Dr. Bennett was in grave danger. The Court refused to give Attorney O’Sullivan the “Protective Orders”.

What Attorney O’Sullivan did not tell the Court that this was not his first move against Dr. Bennett on behalf of Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services. He did not tell the Court that his first move failed because it should not have been filed in the first place. He did not tell the Court the hospital into which Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services tried to force Dr. Bennett dismissed and lifted the Section 12 his clients tried to get against Dr. Bennett. As we further investigated we found Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective services were trying to have Dr. Bennett committed for an extensive time in Mount Auburn Hospital’s psych ward and they had no reason, authority nor anything else to have pushed themselves into this family nor to try such a thing.

Leaving out the most important information when Attorney O’Sullivan went to Court, what he included was the lie which said Dr. Bennett needed to be represented by attorneys, but said Attorney O’Sullivan on behalf of Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services – Dr. Bennett was “indigent” and could not afford attorneys. Since O’Sullivan claimed Dr. Bennett could not afford attorneys and asked for a state appointed attorney, the Court appointed Cheri Myette to represent Dr. Bennett without Dr. Bennett’s knowledge – without anyone speaking to Dr. Bennett or his family about all of this and Dr. Bennett still not being notified of any motions filed in Court against him and with Attorney O’Sullivan moving ahead with an ex parte motion to take away Dr. Bennett’s freedom in violation of state law. To circumvent state law, Attorney O’Sullivan on behalf of his clients constructed what we have been told has been done many times against elderly black people in Massachusetts and other places – a series of court events which actually did not take place as represented, but put in place to be able to “win” against Dr. Bennett who then had all of his rights taken away from him as though this was a fascist Court system which sets up a case without the defendant knowing anything about the case against him and putting in place what was needed to move against the Defendant giving a public relations set of motions, etc. so the plaintiffs – Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services could gain their ends without going through the democratic process, but coming out with the result they wanted with this very fascist way of functioning. It is common today and many are in great pain because of this allowed way of functioning violating everything this country and its court system stands for.

Attorney Myette immediately filed a motion – in Rev. Dr. Bennett’s name without Rev. Bennett’s knowledge or consent. That motion had Dr. Bennett swearing to the attorneys claims that he was “indigent” and needed the state to pay his bills and that his wife was guilty of elder abuse against him.

Dr. Bennett knew nothing about that motion. In fact, that motion stayed very “secret” for quite some time because it was immediately impounded by the Court as soon as it was filed by Attorney Myette. We found out about it when someone put the papers showing that through the mail slot at the Donaldson/Bennett home with copy of the motion and more papers having to do with the workings of SCES and some of the papers needed for Dr. Bennett which had been withheld.

Because the Court appointed an attorney for Dr. Bennett even though Robert Bennett knew nothing about any of this – the Court moved ahead and gave the attorneys who were clearly conspiring with each other over this the right to have Rev. Bennett picked up by the police, forced out of his home for a second time and forced into the psych ward of MGH.

When the police arrived with this Court order, copy of which they again refused to give to Dr. Bennett or his wife or to anyone else in the house at that time, but insisted on taking him out of his house and if he refused they would carry him out. They said to all present that if anything was broken in the process of chasing all over the house looking for Dr. Bennett to drag him out of his own home, it was not their fault or responsibility and they claimed the Court gave them the authority to go anyplace in the Bennett/Donaldson’s home that they had to go to get Dr. Bennett and drag him out if necessary. They claimed Dr. Bennett was in grave danger because of the abuse they accused his wife of and because he was alone with no one else to care for him.

That was March 6th at 6pm. A Friday. Dr. Bennett’s wife was not allowed to see him from the time he was shoved into MGH for more than a week. She had to have the attorneys they hired go to MGH to negotiate some way for her to see him. When she tried to see him she was told many different things like Dr. Bennett did not want to see her; Dr. Bennett had been to court to get a restraining order against her which said she could not come near him; Dr. Bennett was asked and declined to see her. In actual fact, Dr. Bennett knew nothing about this. He was told his wife had done this to him and didn’t want to see him ever again. All of this time, Dr. Bennett was being drugged apparently by MGH people getting him ready for his “independent Exam” by Dr. Rebecca Warner. When she was finally able to see him he didn’t recognize her, he was so groggy he couldn’t keep his eyes open and more.

What was happening at the Bennett/Donaldson home at the time Attorney O’Sullivan was in court describing Dr. Bennett as being alone, destitute with an abusive wife and no one to care for him or protect him? Dr. Bennett, his wife, his adult daughter, his adult son and his wife were about to sit down to a candlelight dinner. They spent the day cooking and preparing for this celebration meal because Robert’s surgery was a success and they were giving thanks. Robert Bennett did not have dinner that day because the police and hospital were so concerned about him they shoved him in a corner of a room and left him there.

When Dr. Bennett arrived at MGH and was shoved into a room, he was immediately started on anti-psychotics; anti-seizure medications, hallucinatory drugs, blood thinners forced on a man just days from brain surgery, plus 10 more medicines. 10 days later Dr. Rebecca Warner shows up at MGH to do what she called an “Independent Exam” although she is affiliated with Mount Auburn Hospital. She – the one who signed out the Section 12 against Dr. Bennett for which the Commonwealth of Massachusetts paid her $2,000 because, after all, Dr. Bennett was “indigent”. So many people and institutions road that “indigent” gravy train that our minds have been twirled around many times trying to nail down all of it.

Dr. Warner appeared 10 days after Dr. Bennett was forced to take all of the above drugs, which he did not want, but did not have a choice. Examining him those 10 days later – a man who did not want to be there and constantly wanted to leave, but was kept on an alarm blanket on his bed so nurses would be notified if he tried to get out of bed; he could move to a chair next to the bed, but that was also alarmed and he could not move without someone moving him; being forced to take medicines which could do serious and long term harm to him was then given an “Independent Exam” – which he already had been given the first time he was taken to MGH, but the circumstances were very different. This time, Dr Warner found him to be “incapacitated”. Those drugs were not put on his medical chart until months after Marceline Donaldson discovered the discrepancy and insisted on an answer as to why. They knew about the drugs because they were sent home with him with MGH insisting that he be required to continue to take them daily or he would be brought back to the hospital for a more “permanent” commitment.

How did would they know if Dr. Bennett was not taking the drugs? Dr. Bennett’s family was forced to accept a Home Health Care Company coming to the house daily – 5 or 6 people each day going in and out of the house during the time of the Pandemic. They were supposed to give him the pills and watch while he swallowed them. And – one thing that resulted from this – Dr. Bennett was sexually abused in the process. His family reported all of this to the Massachusetts District Attorney and the Attorney General’s Office and to the office of Elder Services. None of them paid any attention and in spite of the fact that there were witnesses, none of those institutions bothered to contact and/or interview those witnesses.

Before his transport to the MGH he was walking, talking, in a good state of mind and friends interacted with him – he walked to Harvard Square – sat by the river to soak up the sun and more. When he was sent home from MGH some 5 weeks later he was in horrible shape. He had no shoes on – his feet were swollen and his shoes didn’t fit – he hadn’t been able to get out of bed for five weeks and at Dr. Bennett’s age that could have been a death sentence or one which would have produced an “incapacitated” person for the rest of his life. He looked as though he had been homeless on the street for years. and he could not walk. That is what MGH and SCES contributed to Dr. Bennett’s “health”. It was disgraceful and heartbreaking.

The Court Order said Dr. Bennett was being taken to MGH not for medical reasons, but because of elder abuse and because of that they had to immediately take him from his home. They treated him in a disgraceful way. He spent the five weeks in a space 7 by 9 feet and he shared that space with unused hospital equipment. He shared the room with someone else who had two beautiful picture windows, the sun coming through, a chaise lounge kind of chair he could sit in during the day and a lot more. Dr. Bennett didn’t see the sun because curtains were kept drawn around his bed. If you entered his room you would not know anyone else was in that room.

We are finding others who have gone through the same thing. The elderly are particularly vulnerable because most who have gone through this have not fought civil rights battles the way the Donaldson/Bennett’s have nor have they had any other fights so they are ‘taken over’ by people like Nora Al Wet-Aid and Angela Clary with the acquiescence and consent of their superiors.

During the entire time no one talked to Dr. Bennett. They did what they wanted to do and what they felt they needed to do pursuing the goal they have for people like him. Being moved from a psych ward into a nursing home for life with the Court’s permission to feed him and others like him anti-psychotics for life along with others drugs which ruin their health and the quality of their life. Why? Assets!

Dr. Bennett’s wife was told – and a letter to other lawyers attest to the fact – that she would be given a small stipend and could find a room someplace – maybe even with her own bathroom because the family’s assets would be needed and taken over by a Guardianship Corporation – drained down by that Corporation to supposedly pay for Dr. Bennett’s bills.

It gets worse from here so we won’t go through all of the gory details, but as you read this can you imagine Senator Danforth being so treated? Or reaching out to help someone like Rev. Dr. Bennett? And how have others in the Episcopal Church reacted?

As you read this we hope you realize the very authoritarian system in which the health care institutions are functioning and the way it is so much easier to have blacks put out of commission with their assets stripped so their children cannot inherit and therefore lose the edge in this society that assets inherited would bring to them.

Add to that the very aggressive stripping of the vote from minorities which is what Senator Hawley – who was backed by Senator Danforth – is trying to do with his attempted takeover of a democracy turning it into an authoritarian government.

Dr. Bennett, who hired attorneys to represent him was not able to be represented by the attorneys of his choice. The Court appointed an attorney to represent him before he even knew he needed any kind of representation. Dr. Bennett was not “indigent” and paid the retainers requested by those attorneys. Didn’t matter. The attorney appointed by the Court in an “emergency motion” about which Dr. Bennett knew nothing – he was not served or contacted in any way; the attorney so appointed by the Court did not contact him she simply did what others told her to do, resulted in the “dictatorship over” way he was treated during every moment of what must have been a nightmarish experience for him. He was treated as though these United States are a system of “dictatorships over” in the areas necessary for whites to keep control.

There is talk of “defunding the police”. The problem is much more serious than what is happening with the arrest and killings of blacks and other minorities who supposedly have committed some kind of crime. When the police can push their way into your home without your knowledge of why or what for and can forcibly take you out for no reason the ‘police problem’ in this society needs to have its entire structure and what it can do unearthed before any solutions are sought or rendered.

When the people, like Senator Danforth, with the power and money are calling the shots on who is elected; who is appointed to important positions in this society which can bring substantial changes to our individual and collective lives those people need to be highlighted and call out on what they are doing and why they are allowed to wield so much more power and have so much more money than the rest of society.

We are still living in a “slave society” which we inherited from the many generations who went before. Instead of looking at that and making major changes, we are playing games with “riots” and attempting to force those changes in physical ways which will most hurt those making the physical and psychic sacrifices to bring in a new way of being in society, which will simply bring a more concentrated form of wealth and power to the aristocracy at the top calling the shots – manipulating the strings of the puppets who are dancing without any thought to what it is they are doing.

Don’t you think it is time to stop all of this? Don’t you think it is time for us to live in some other kind of community which benefits all? That is such an incredible threat to most we are afraid to even go there. We might encounter people who don’t look like us – talk like us – have our history – etc, etc, etc. and isn’t that the greatest threat of all?

Bettina Network Foundation, inc. and the elderly!

Friday, December 4th, 2020

As many of you know, we have been through some horrifying times over the past few months.

What we learned is that the elderly are at risk in this society and many are being exploited with their assets, freedom, health and more increasingly attacked and stripped away for the benefit of others.

We are adding “Project Old Age” to what the Foundation is doing and hope you will support our efforts. Of all our projects, this one will most assuredly touch your life because we all, finally, move into Old Age.

The project which took a lot of time, money and other resources is coming to an end. The Harriet Tubman Project. We hope you will sign the petition which we are sending to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris telling them about our efforts and all of those who helped and asking them to re-start and bring to completion having the image of Harriet Tubman printed on the next print-run of the $20 bill.

It was, after all President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden who started this effort and brought it almost to completion. When they left office in 2016 they left everything needed for the next printing of the $20 bill to be one with the image of Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson.

That was scheduled to happen, with even the printing plates all done and waiting to be used, at the very beginning of Donald Trump’s time as president. However, Trump canceled that printing and was very clear there would be a woman on the currency one of these days, but it would not be someone like her.

All of that means the effort we put into the Tubman Project will now go into “Project Old Age.”

It has so many paths to take:

  1. We were horrified to discover how easy it is to have the police pick up a citizen of the United States and shove him or her into the psych ward for no reason – except their assets look good and they are moving ahead with civil rights activities that some folks think need to be stopped – or some other personal or civil rights reason.

2. In addition, we discovered that many taxing areas – like cities which tax real estate – made a lot of noise and took credit for helping the elderly stay in their homes. They passed laws making it possible for people over 65, or in some cases over 70 or over 75 to be able to lien their real estate taxes to their property – paying interest, of course.

That has become a joke. The cities have almost no one who has been able to take advantage of that possibility. Why? Because working with banks, the bank refuse to allow such and the city, working with the banks, will obfuscate and confuse to make sure that such a lien process does not happen. Especially if the property is one developers want to buy; or the person is not wanted in the neighborhood for race or other reasons; or fifty other reasons we are uncovering.

3. Elder and Protective Services are also very problematical, being used to destroy, incarcerate, abuse and do much more and worse to the elderly they are supposed to be protecting. People are beginning to call us with problems that are horrifying. Elderly forcibly taken out of their homes for no reason and usually by the police with defective instruments. When they have no protection from these “Protective Services” they are shoved into nursing homes and there – under constraints – end their lives. They just disappear. These days they become a part of the statistic of some 40% of the people dying from COVID-19 are dying in nursing homes. Our experience is that the elderly are placed in nursing homes – even ones already under quarantine, insuring that their lives will be at risk.

We could go on, but we want you to know what this “Project Old Age” is about because it will take in all kinds of problems and sub-projects. It seems to be where society is focusing. Why? Seems to us because with the elderly that is where a very large percentage of assets have always been and because it is easy to get out one’s racism, sexism, and more against families and look “legitimate” in the process. Destroy the assets of the elderly in a new immigrant family and the next generation does not have as great a chance at success as they would if the sacrifices of their parents and grandparents were to come to fruition in their generation helping them through the education and other needs we require as a society for many to move up.

We had no idea what was waiting for all of us out there as we move into “old age”. We are asking that you take another look. Think carefully over our requests and information as all of this unfolds and work with us to rectify and block and eliminate all of these problems so our old age comes peacefully and we can enjoy our last years instead of having to go through what so many have worked hard for and don’t get to experience because others decided to steal, destroy, oppress, and more those reaching the end of their lives.

And lets look at assets with a different definition. When you become elderly – assets include insurance, etc.

JOIN US! It is becoming one of the most meaningful things we have done and we intend to put as many resources into this as possible.

It is a formmula  for newly forming Guardianship Corporations to drain the assets of the elderly.  They were mostly interested in Jews – it was a way to make sure the assets of elderly Jewish families would not go to the next generation – making sure their families would not be able to accomplish as much in life as would be possible if they had what in many cases has amounted to millions of dollars.  

It is bizaar, but it is also life ending prematurely.  We think this is a criminal conspiracy.  They isolate – medicate – liquidate everything you own.

It is an issue where you will find extreme right wing Republicans taking it on as well as extreme left wing Democrats because families of all political persuasions are negatively affected.  Not only are they moving showing their anti-semitism, but they are also moving showing they are not respectors of political parties and have a sharp eye out for minorities – all minorities, African Americans, Latinx, LGBTQ, Muslims, etc..

To go along with the above we are pulling together a “Legal Defense and Education fund for the Elderly.”  We are starting it under Bettina Network Foundation, inc. and will hopefully be able to move it into its own non-profit soonest.  

We are looking for attorneys who want to affiliate with this Elderly Fund and are willing to take cases; do research, etc..  Local Massachusetts attorneys, but also attorneys  across the country.  

I guess I am following family history – my grandfather worked with Thurgood Marshall – Jack Greenberg and others to found the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.  I have pictures from way back in the 1940’s. How different a society we would be if the creation of the NAACP Legal and Educational Defense Fund had not happened.

Hopefully, what we leave in place will be an organization that works with the elderly on these legal issues.  Having people picked up by the police the way Robert was and illegally so because those doing the “incarcerating” have been to Court without the other side present or knowing anything about the “emergency hearing” making sure the case was set in place before anyone on the other side even knew there was a case. The elderly are defeated from day one and don’t know that because the papers so filed are either impounded or under seal.  A couple cases we found the people had no idea how what happened to them got started and defended against the wrong thing because they were led to believe something which was not true. We found motions from attorneys like the one filed in Roberts name as though Robert was filing it when Robert knew nothing about the motion, did not know there was anything in court about him, had not been notified that the Court had appointed an attorney to represent him. How could that be attorney representation when no one knew on Robert Bennett’s side about such an appointment and the person appointed and the Court appointment came from Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services – so they then had attorneys representing them on both sides of the issue.

The state is implicated because the claim of “indigent” opens the state pocket books so they can be picked to be able to facilitate what we strongly believe and everything we find backs up our belief that this is a “criminal conspiracy.”

The police were and usually are involved on the wrong side of these issues. In Robert’s case they forced him out of his home and into a psych ward with a defective instrument. One signed by a psychiatrist testifying to the fact that she had never met Robert, knew nothing about him, had never examined him, had never been to his home which she described as “unsafe” and yet out of the blue and violating all of the rules and regulations of Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services she signed out a Section 12 to have him picked up by the police.

The proof of the defectiveness of the instrument the police were given and used is proven by the fact that the hospital sent Robert home with no problems found, no reason for him to have been forced into the psych ward in the first place. That kind of proof after the fact followed through in everything that happened to Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett and what happened to him turns out to be a pattern used to do the same thing to other elderly people who have something the people sending out the police want and which they move to get through these defective legal means. And on from bad to worse.

So far, we have been blessed with many people cooperating and working with us. We owe a huge thank you and gratitude to the person who put legal papers through our mail slot which showed us what was really happening with Robert and we were able to break that case and now have what we need to file a substantial law suit against all involved.  

Work with us – let us know the problems – send attorneys to affiliate with this new Legal and Educational Fund for the Elderly.

Insurance Fraud – Attempted Destruction of a human being – and so much more!

Friday, April 17th, 2020

Each day brings drama such as we have never seen before. We had no idea the Health/Medical field had such incredible things happening.

Keeping up with all that is happening takes a lot of work. We are trying to walk a fine line with what we publish because Ms. Donaldson and Dr. Bennett want to preserve a bit of privacy because a law suit is going to follow all of this, but at the same time, we think the public has a right to know what the medical/health industry is producing and how quickly and totally your rights are being destroyed. It is like living in an extreme fascist country when you deal in this area.

There is so much constant insurance fraud it is difficult to document. We will start with the smallest things we have seen.

When leaving a medical facility Dr. Bennett was offered a walking stick and a walker. He had several of both because the Donaldson/Bennett’s are avid estate sale shoppers and have purchased things they didn’t need at that moment, but they could see a possible use in the future and they had guests who they thought might need such when visiting.

Dr. Bennett and Ms. Donaldson have two walkers – which they keep in the basement in case they are needed. They paid $5 for the two. They also had three walking sticks, not including an exquisite carved African piece. The three regular walking sticks cost them $2.00 each.

From a medical facility they were encouraged to take a walking stick. they declined and said they already had three. The person encouraging them said they should take it anyway because it was “free” and theirs anyway so they should take it.

Turns out that is not quite true. It was “free” to Dr. Bennett because his insurance was paying the bill and the insurance company was charged $12.00 for the walking stick that was represented as being “free”. Same thing with the walker.

Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett is now at home. He was discharged from Mass General Hospital on Monday. Dr. Bennett’s son made an agreement with the people at Mass General who were keeping him incarcerated for Somerville Cambridge Protective and Elder Services that if Dr. Bennett and Ms. Donaldson agreed to accept “Home Care Services” then Dr. Bennett would be released on Monday.

The Donaldson/Bennett’s kept their part of the bargain. The Mass General people did not keep theirs. It has been extreme drama since Dr. Bennett has been home beginning with the fact that the Home Care Agency chosen could not be chosen by either Dr. Bennett, his wife, nor anyone else in the family. Mass General’s people would make that choice.

We would call what has and is happening attempted murder, and/or the attempt to destroy an African American male. And as we said before, this is not the only case of such we have found – in Massachusetts and around the country. We would say “attempted murder” because Dr. Bennett would be kept alive, barely, until his insurance ran out and they would have taken all of the Donaldson Bennett assets and then the actual murder or the turning out onto the street of Dr. Bennett would, no doubt, take place. And, this is not just conjecture, we have people calling us constantly now because of the blogs we have written documenting what has been happening to Dr. Bennett. They have seen a commonality with what they are experiencing and they are calling us for help or to just have someone to tell their story to because it all sounds so bizarre it can be difficult to believe that such happens in what is supposed to be a “free country.”

When Dr. Bennett was released from the hospital, his son picked him up and brought him home. It was a shock to see him. He could no longer walk except with the help of a walker and one person on either side holding him up. He looked disheveled and unkempt. He left the hospital and arrived home in socks because his shoes no longer fit. His feet were extremely swollen and the socks almost did not fit they were so tight. Dr. Bennett talked about being in California and later in other parts of the world including conversation about events no one knew what he was talking about.

As everyone gathered around several people committed to being there to be able to take care of Dr. Bennett. His wife took charge and things began to change. The first thing they worked on was helping Dr. Bennett get back his ability to walk on his own.

It took about two days for Dr. Bennett to begin walking on his own. He very quickly reached the point of being able to walk from home to the post office and today he takes a daily one mile walk around Harvard Square. At 87 years old, having been forced to stay in bed some five weeks during all of which his friends and family were not able to visit nor see him nor talk to him via telephone because he was held under some kind of “Security” to keep him “safe” – that was nothing short of a miracle and an answer to prayer. That “Security” allowed all of this to happen because there were no eyes on Dr. Bennett of people who care about him and would have raised red flags if they had known how bad things were for him.

His feet were addressed next and Ms. Donaldson was able to get the swelling down to the point where that Dr. Bennett could wear shoes again. So now he can go for walks with his own shoes on instead of oversized galoshes stuffed with paper and other materials to make them comfortable.

Dr. Bennett, who never took medicine and never wanted to take medicine of any kind, not even aspirin nor tylenol was sent home with some 12 plus bottles of medicine with orders to take them and the intervals necessary. These were the medicines which had been given to Dr. Bennett during his stay in Mass General. There was a twice daily schedule for him to take these medicines. It was painful to see him take a couple of them because they clearly burned Dr. Bennett as they went down and he showed the results of having had to take such and endure the pain as they went down, for so many weeks.

All of those medicines were amazing to us because Dr. Bennett had not been forced into the hospital for medical reasons. Remember? He was “sectioned” by Somerville Cambridge Protective and Elder Services without any psychologist or psychiatrist having examined him. The woman who signed for him to be sectioned had never even met Dr. Bennett. In addition, Dr. Bennett had never overdosed on drugs or alcohol nor did he have public displays which would threaten people in the public nor was he a threat to himself. In fact, Dr. Bennett does not smoke, drink alcohol, does not take drugs and has never had even a hint of mental problems. So it was quite a shocker to discover that a couple of the “medicines” sent home with Dr. Bennett were psychotropic drugs. Therein the light began to dawn and we begin to understand where the flights of fancy Dr. Bennett had about being other places and having a hard time knowing where he was – it became clear to us where those things had come from.

That has all cleared up as the drugs in his system were eliminated and he is himself again. That made all of us breathe a huge sigh of relief when we realized he would be fine, but it also seriously angered us to know how much ugliness had been done to such an incredibly lovely person.

When Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett was in Mass General he was kept in bed for five weeks. That would have destroyed or “incapacitated” many people. Thank God that did not happen to Dr. Bennett. As we went back over what he had been given, we knew from the very brief conversations we had with him over the telephone when he was in the hospital that something was wrong because one day he would sound fine and the next he would be exhausted for no apparent cause. We discovered that he was given drugs that were depressives and a couple of them were sent home with him. Our guess was that this is what one had to do to keep someone in bed for such a long period of time, who was not sick and who had been as active as Dr. Bennett had been.

Because of the agreement Dr. Bennett’s son had to make with Somerville Cambridge Protective and Elder Services just to get Dr. Bennett home, we could not simply stop giving Dr. Bennett the drugs sent home with him from Mass General Hospital. We were forced to continue giving hime those drugs. Dr. Bennett’s son had to negotiate with a doctor that because these were not prescription drugs, none given in the course of some disease, or for any other real medical reason, why did he have to take them and wouldn’t it be possible to stop them because they were not needed and were clearly causing Dr. Bennett physical and psychological problems. The doctor agreed and those drugs were no longer given to Dr. Bennett. Once they cleared out of his system he was back and strong. The bill for those drugs must be horrendous and we would guess into at least a couple hundred dollars.

Today, we are dealing with the Home Care People who come into the house.

That was the hardest of all to accept. A large part of the agreement Dr. Bennett’s son had to make for Dr. Bennett to be able to leave Mass General Hospital was they had to agree to allow Home Care People from Blissful Agency into the house. The Bennett/Donaldsons concern was the possibility of the family coming down with coronavirus because of so many people coming and going. Before Dr. Bennett was released, Ms. Donaldson kept herself inside the house and didn’t let anyone into the house because she knew Dr. Bennett would one day be home and she wanted to make sure the house was as clear as possible of coronavirus because she had sheltered at home and closed the home to others. Now it was open to whoever the Blissful Agency sent and they had no say so over anything.

So far, the nurses they have sent have done exceptional jobs. They take care to have on a mask and gloves. If their clothes have picked up something from the many places they go we had no control of that and that still worries all of us. We could only stand aside and pray hard that Dr. Bennett and Ms. Donaldson would get through this too without coming down with the coronavirus.

There have been a couple exceptional experiences. One is yet to come this Friday at 10am when the “Occupational Therapist” comes back. This is the most amazing and the most negative experience so far, from what we could see. We had some questions about her first visit, but decided to keep an open mind. Dr. Bennett and his family said they did not need an “Occupational Therapist” and there was an appointment for the afternoon and that was supposed to be a “Physical Therapist.” Instead, the Occupational Therapist who the family said was not necessary came anyway and it was not a great experience.

She visited Dr. Bennett’s bathroom and had him sit on the toilet and get up – but he was completely dressed at the time, so maybe that was routine. She also had him get into the shower – fully clothed. The Donaldson/Bennett’s have a walk-in shower so there are no impediments to anyone getting in or out.

The “Occupational Therapist” suggested a stool be put in the shower, which she thought was needed. It was a bit strange because she knew Dr. Bennett and Ms. Donaldson showered together so exactly what a stool in the shower would do was a bit mystifying, but trying to be open and accepting and keeping up the spirit of the agreement the Bennett/Donaldsons did just that.

Last night, however, they received a telephone call from the “Occupational Therapist” who said she would arrive on Friday about 10am and she wanted to see Dr. Bennett take an actual shower and not with his clothes on.

There we had a real problem. Since Dr. Bennett is now completely mobile; goes for walks every day of at least one mile; rides his stationary bicycle daily and has access to two other pieces of exercise equipment in his home on a daily basis with no problems, his ability to get around and do whatever he needs to do is not in question so what was the point of having to see him take a shower – sans clothes – and a walk-in shower at that made no sense.

Dr. Bennett and Ms. Donaldson agreed, but with the proviso that Dr. Bennett take a shower the way he normally would – which is with his wife.

Also amazingly, the “Occupational Therapist” thought that would be fine.

We wondered if we should film this “Home Care Shower Exhibit” because we would probably be able to sell the film to a porn film group and we wondered further what that had to do with home care?

Our next installment will go into detail about the breaking of the agreement Dr. Bennett’s son made with Somerville Cambridge Protective and Elder Services which Somerville Cambridge Protective and Elder Services broke on Tuesday and continue to break daily with the extreme harassment they and Attorney O’Sullivan are bringing down onto the backs of Dr. Bennett and Ms. Donaldson. It is what they have done continually for all of the time they have harassed, injured, attempted to destroy this African American family. This time they are coming around with a scenario to send up a picture of this being Jews and Blacks harassing each other, however, we see the shadows of the real culprits in the background – doing what? – for how much money? The picture becomes uglier exponentially, but clearer as to what is really happening here.

A Summary of what happened to Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett!

Friday, April 10th, 2020

        Events Leading to the Involuntary Holding of Reverend Dr. Robert Bennett

  Reverend Dr. Robert Bennett is an 86-year-old retired Episcopal priest. In 2019, Upon the insistence of his stepdaughter Malica Aronowitz, he had cataract surgery. The surgery was not successful. Thereafter, his ophthalmologist recommended corneal transplant surgery. Robert was not in favor of the surgery. Upon the insistence of his stepdaughter, Malica Aronowitz, the surgery was scheduled and performed. The surgery did not vastly improve his sight. He did not possess peripheral vision. A couple days after the surgery, while wearing the molded plastic eye-covering, Robert fell. Concerned, his wife Marceline inquired if he were all right. He said that he felt fine and did not want to seek medical help.

 The next morning after the fall, Robert began to complain of nausea. The nausea settled. He and his wife, Marceline Bennett ate breakfast and attended an estate sale. While at the estate sale, Robert vomited in the hallway of the facility. Marceline called her daughter Malica Aronowitz who told them to go the nearest hospital, Beth Israel in Needham, Massachusetts.

 Accompanied by his wife and a friend, Maria Sensale, Robert arrived at the hospital with a presumed head injury. They were forced to endure a considerable wait time. Finally, they were told that the hospital did not have the proper equipment and Robert should be transported by ambulance to Beth Israel of Boston. Marceline and Maria drove in a separate automobile to the hospital.

 Tests were performed including a CT Scan. Marceline could not get the results of the test from any nurse or attendant.  Finally, two doctors entered the room but addressed all comments to Marceline’s daughter, Malica. Malica gave the doctors papers of some sort. Upon requesting to speak to the doctors, Marceline was told that they were busy and had to leave. Robert was required to remain in the hospital for further testing.

 Meanwhile, Marceline discovered that her daughter, Malica, had given the doctors a Health Care Proxy declaring herself as the person making health decisions for Robert. Marceline or Robert were unaware of the existence of this Health Care Proxy. Don McInnis, a probate lawyer and neighbor of twenty years was contacted. According to Robert’s wishes, Attorney McInnis drafted a new Health Care Proxy designating, Marceline Donaldson, Robert’s wife as his Health Care Proxy. The Proxy was witnessed by Ms. Trudy Van Slyck, a friend of twenty to thirty years. Because the Proxy that Malica Aronowitz was of an earlier date, Attorney McInnis advised that it was invalidated with the creation of the new Health Care Proxy.

 As a follow-up to his hospital visit, Robert’s Primary Care Physician, Dr. Glenn S. Kehlman, of the Washington Square Group scheduled an office visit. Marceline and Malica accompanied Robert to the office visit. After taking Robert’s vitals and requesting that he walk the hallway, he was declared in good health. Marceline gave a representative in Dr Kehlman’s office a copy of Robert’s new Health Care Proxy. The representative accepted the document.

 A few months later Robert sustained a second fall when forced to use the rear stairs of their home while upgrades were taking place on the front stairs. The rear stairs were not frequently used and unfamiliar to Robert. His lack of peripheral vision limited his maneuvering on the stairs.

 Marceline called Dr. Kehlman’s office and asked to speak to him relative to Robert’s fall. The person with whom she spoke stated that Dr. Kehlman was busy. He was preparing for vacation and would not have time to return her call. She inquired if they could recommend a neurologist that she could secure an appointment for Robert. The representative stated that they did not know any neurologist.

 After contacting friends, one friend Desiree Ivey, Executive Director of Teaching at Shady Hills, recommended Dr. David Pilgrim, Chief Neurologist at Brigham and Women in Jamaica Plain, Mass.

 Meanwhile, Robert had a scheduled appointment with his Podiatrist, Dr. Green. Malica called to say that Dr. Green’s office notified her that Robert’s appointment which occurred every five to six months had been canceled. Because Robert’s nails were in need of cutting, Marceline called Dr. Green’s office to reschedule Robert’s appointment as soon as possible. Dr. Green’s office stated that they had not called to cancel an appointment. Instead, Malica called them to cancel Robert’s appointment. But they stated that the original appointment was still available. Marceline accepted the time slot.

 Marceline received a call from friend, Desiree Ivey. She stated that she had spoken to Dr. Pilgrim. Dr. Pilgrim advised that Marceline call 911 for an ambulance and have Robert taken to Massachusetts General.

 An ambulance was called. Robert was taken to Massachusetts General where he was examined by a neurologist and Marceline was told that he needed brain surgery to drain the fluids from his brain cavity. Marceline further learned that Dr. Kehlman should have recommended Robert to a neurologist as a follow-up to his Beth Israel visit. Perhaps there would have been a difference in his medical condition. Perhaps the hemorrhaging would have been taken care of earlier.

 Robert had surgery. Stints were placed to eliminate the pressure and the fluid. The surgery was successful. And, he recovered and was discharged from Mass. General on or about February 27, 2020.

 During his stay at Massachusetts General, Malica Aronowitz gave the hospital a Health Care Proxy declaring herself as Robert’s Health Care Proxy. However, upon Robert’s admittance, Marceline submitted to Massachusetts General the current and updated Health Care Proxy declaring Marceline Donaldson, Robert’s wife as his Health Care Proxy.

 Upon discharge, Massachusetts General referred Robert to Sherrill House for rehab.  Robert decided to follow their suggestion since Sherrill House was supported by and had a long history with the Episcopal Church. As a retired Episcopal priest, Robert thought that the spiritual connection was a good thing.

 On the day that Robert was admitted to Sherrill House, they waited a considerable amount of time before being cared for by nursing personnel. Upon asking questions at the Nurse’s station, Marceline was told that all nurses were busy. About 10 minutes later, a nurse arrived and instructed Robert that he was to remain in bed. Should he have a need to use the bathroom, he was to ring for help. When the urge to use the bathroom arose, Robert rang the bell. A nurse arrived 45 minutes later. The delinquency in arrival, caused him to experience the humiliation of an accident.

 Upon arrival the next day to visit Robert at Sherrill House, Marceline was told that no visitors were allowed on the second floor because 4 patients had the flu. Marceline called Robert on the telephone. They, Robert and Marceline, decided it was best for Robert to go home.

 Monday evening about 9-9:30 pm, a policeman rang their doorbell in response to a call request   for a “wellness check.” Upon hearing Marceline talking to the policeman, Robert went to the door out of his concern for his wife addressing a policeman alone at that hour of the night. The policeman apologized and said that everything looked fine. He apologized for the intrusion.

 The next morning eight white policemen arrived at the door with five or six EMT personnel, all white. They said that they were there to take Robert to Mount Auburn Hospital. Robert said that he did not want to go to the hospital, he had just been discharged and had no reason to return to a hospital. The policeman stated that Robert had no choice. If he refused, they would physically carry him out of the house.

 The police did not have a hard copy of a court order. The police showed Marceline a cell phone and told her that the order was on the phone and she could not touch the cell phone. After extended conversations, the police forcibly entered the house. Marceline asked that they take Robert to Massachusetts General for continuity of care instead of Mount Auburn Hospital. Robert was placed on a gurney and taken to Massachusetts General.

 Robert was admitted to the hospital on a Section 12 order. An order that is used for incarceration of those who are a threat to themselves or others, drug addicts, alcoholics or persons experiencing a mental or psychotic episode. Robert had none of those. He has never had mental problems, did not drink, did not use drugs nor has ever had a mental or psychotic encounter.

 Being admitted to the hospital on a Section 12 order, he would be subjected to psychiatric examinations. We waited in the examination room for an available psychiatrist. The psychiatrist arrived to examine Robert at 2:30 am Wednesday morning. After examination, the psychiatrist stated that there was no reason for Robert to be there. The Section 12 order was lifted, and he was released for home. Robert and Marceline were given discharge papers.

 On Thursday morning, Robert and Marceline went for a walk around the Charles River. They also walked around Harvard Square.  They met friends and sat by the river for a period of time before returning home.

 On Friday, Robert’s son and daughter arrived to visit with him and spend the weekend. About 6 pm Friday evening, the police arrived again with a Section 12 order and a Protective Order accusing Marceline of abusing her husband. He was to return to Massachusetts General. The Protective Order invalidated the current Health Care Proxy designating Marceline Donaldson, his wife, as Robert’s Proxy. Instead, the Court placed into practice the Health Care Proxy that Malica Aronowitz drafted without his knowledge or signature. Malica Aronowitz engaged Cambridge Elder Services as cohorts in her unauthorized proxy.

 Currently, Robert remains in the hospital under the Section 12 Order. Marceline has not been able to secure his discharge or release.

 For a period, Marceline was allowed to see Robert for a half-hour each day with the presence of a Security Guard. Then, in a two -week period, she was allowed a total of three visitation sessions. Each day upon arrival, Marceline was given various reasons for not granting visitation to see Robert, i.e., the hospital did not have sufficient staff to allow her visit. Most recently, upon arrival, Marceline was told by Security Guard, Robert DuBois that she could not see Robert because Robert had filed a restraining order against her. That statement was not true.  Security Guard DuBois insisted that should Marceline not leave the hospital; he would physically throw her out of the hospital.

Throughout this entire ordeal, Marceline Donaldson Bennett has acted in the best interest of her husband, Reverend Dr. Robert Bennett. At this time, her prime interest is to solicit assistance in the release of her husband so that he, as an 86-year old man, can enjoy a peaceful life. 

MEDICARE FRAUD AND MORE. What has Robert Bennett Lost!

Tuesday, March 17th, 2020
  1. His vote as an American citizen. Eight (8) policemen picked Robert up on March 3rd in the morning – 10-10:30am. He was set to vote in the Primary and could not. He asked several times during his “incarceration” at the hospital, but could not. So his right to cast his vote was taken away with all of this.

2. This is continuing in the worst way. People are now talking about Robert needing 24 hour care. He was walking with no problems – meeting friends – to the post office and back – how can someone’s freedom be taken away and their health destroyed – their ability to live on their own taken away – I am overwhelmed with this.

3) The Court’s took away an African American man’s freedom on so many levels. He clearly could make his own decisions on the Tuesday and Wednesday that the police pushed into our home. He also clearly could make his own decisions on the Wednesday and Thursday following that Tuesday/Wednesday ‘incarceration’ before the police pushed into our home for the second time in a week for the same reason to repeat a process because the Somerville Cambridge Elder Affairs group didn’t like the result the first time. Both times the police pushed themselves inside my home with the Court’s suggestion and permission and dragged Robert Bennett out against his will. The Court said if he did not want to come – the police had the Court’s permission to take him out anyway. Robert was very clear with everyone he did not want to go and refused the request. The police made it clear he did not have a choice. Both times they threatened to arrest his wife because she also did not want him taken away.

Robert Bennett was totally able to make his own decisions about his life. The Court took that away by invoking a Health Care Proxy which was invalid and replaced at least twice. The Court gave Robert Bennett’s health care proxy to a woman who is a non-blood related person who was not his wife. To do that they had to invalidate a Health Care Proxy created by Massachusetts General Hospital and a prior Health Care Proxy created by a reputable probate attorney with of which reflected what Robert wanted because they talked to Robert and knew what he wanted. Two witnesses who had known Robert for some 20 to 30 years said so and Robert himself was present when the Health Care Proxy was signed November 18, 2019 and Robert was very clear at that time who he wanted as his Health Care Proxy. Mass General had someone interview Robert for some 30 minutes to make sure they knew who he wanted as his health care proxy. The Court had never met Robert, never talked to him, knew nothing about him and the people making the presentation to the Court didn’t know Robert or his wishes either. This is how they operate in Cambridge MA? How could a man’s freedoms and right to choose be so destroyed. The more this goes on the more appalled I become.

What is clear – there is something not quite right in Cambridge, MA. which is putting its citizens at risk – especially its older, minority – especially African American citizens. if you go into old age with any substantial assets, they will be targeted and taken away from you in the name of “taking care of you” when you don’t need other people to push themselves into your life, take up residence and push their wishes and needs on you.

What happened and the way it happened looks as though it is also Medicare Fraud and the taking away from a citizen his right to decide the choices he wants to make with his health care.

If you don’t go along with the program and max out your Medicare and other medical insurance you will be picked up by the police, your rights taken away from you and among other things – your freedom also as you sit in a hospital with your health declining and it is clear the condition Robert is in today was created by Mass General Hospital following an order of the Court.

This is happening, has happened and will continue to happen unless someone stops it.

In this case the agency controlling all this and carrying out this apparent Medicare Fraud is Somerville/Cambridge Elder Affairs aided by its attorney Jim O’Sullivan. Has he been involved in other such situations like this? Any attorney involved in this should be disbarred. Was he involved in the complaints and law suit which resulted in Cambridge, MA. having to pay an African American woman $10 million dollars in damages because of the way she was treated?

When a person makes a decision that they do not want rehab services as offered by the agency the hospital referred them to -that they would prefer such services at their own home and privately secured and paid for – and the local state agency files for the police to pick up that person and force them into the hospital on a section 12 making the hospital prove the person is sane – not on drugs – not on alcohol – not psychotic, Medicare has to pick up the bill for that hospital stay – that looks to me like Medicare fraud. Forced medical treatment billed to Medicare.

When that person is discharged by the hospital and the next day Somerville/Cambridge Elder Services goes into Court and manipulates the Court System to force that person back into the hospital with no reason and no right, but the Court goes along that is Medicare fraud taking place – that is forced medical treatment which takes away an individuals rights and at the same time increases the Somerville Cambridge Elder Affairs group’s standing with its reporting to the state and others, inflating what it claims as legitimate services, which in fact are spurious and nobody checks – not the lawyer for the agency, nor anyone else affiliated with that agency and the people employed are allowed to make sworn statements which do not represent the facts as they are – but changes them to fit the Medicare requirements for such services – that is apparently Medicare Fraud.

To go into Court – Somerville/Cambridge Elder Services mischaracterized Robert Bennet as “indigent”. Who follows that up? No one. Why bother with an indigent – poverty stricken person. That made it easier for Somerville/Cambridge and any other institutions to present the bills to Medicare for Mr. Bennett. The Court aided these mischaracterizations by allowing this state agency to have a hearing without notifying Mr. Bennett, making all kinds of untrue, spurious, twisted statements to the Court.

To compensate, the Courts appointed an attorney to represent Mr. Bennet after the hearing and after Mr. Bennett was in the custody of the police. An attorney who never met Mr. Bennett, knew nothing about him, and that attorney was appointed after the hearing in which the Court gave Somerville Cambridge Elder Services unbelievable latitude over Mr. Bennett and lied extensively about Mr. Bennett’s wife – in fact slandered and libelous are their accusations.

That Court appointed attorney contacted Robert Bennett after a hearing which sent police to his house to forcibly pick him up and incarcerate him in Massachusetts General Hospital against his will – especially when no medical doctor, agency or anything comparable had declared Mr. Bennett unable to make decisions for himself. It took more than a week for this Court appointed attorney to see Mr. Bennett – too busy.

That attorney has subsequently put Mr. Bennett at risk because she is an attorney who is in and out of nursing homes and then visited Mr. Bennett in the hospital possibly exposing him and others to the coronavirus and that visit took place after she was told Mr. Bennett did not want her to represent him.

After Somerville/Cambridge Elder Affaires went Court with Jim O’Sullivan apparently representing them and hiding relevant information from the Court to gain a decision which they wanted and asking the Court to make a Protective Order without allowing Mr. Bennett or his representatives to appear to present the other side to what they were claiming, the Court by not notifying Robert Bennett and Marceline Donaldson that there was to be such a hearing – for the second time in four days to harass Mr. Bennett to the point of having police pick him up at his home to once again incarcerate him at Massachusetts General Hospital to once again undergo the same thing he had undergone just two days before when he was discharged from the hospita in very good shape, after the first police pick up of Mr. Bennett and after that first forced visit Robert Bennett was discharged from the hospital with no medicines prescribed and a date for a return to check up on his past surgery.

This was forced and fraudulent treatment which was to be billed to Mr. Bennett’s Medicare.

To be able to do this they had to move Mr. Bennett’s wife out of the way so the Somerville Cambridge Elder Services had Mr. Bennett’s wife charged with abuse in this same Court hearing where neither knew about the hearing and were therefore not given the opportunity to defend themselves against such horrid, reputation destroying, life destroying charges.

We believe it is illegal to bill Medicare for forced treatment which the patient and his Health Care Advocate rejects and Marceline Donaldson had been named as Health Care Proxy by Mr. Bennett, but it was not invoked because Mr. Bennett was able to make his own decisions. We believe it is fraudulent to make such charges to Mr. Bennett’s Medicare account.

If Mr. Bennett needed therapy – it was possible to get that at home – even through Medicare. That was not a consideration because there was no such therapy prescribed.

After leaving Massachusetts General Hospital, after surgery, Mr. Bennett took the hospital’s advice and went for rehab to Sherrill House in Jamaica Plain expecting that to be a great experience. The connection between Mr. Bennett as an Episcopal Priest and Sherill House’s Episcopal connection he expected that to be a special experience on many levels. Instead it was a horror story.

If you read other Bettina Network blogs you will see some of the reasons for that horror story. The one we will repeat here – Mr. Bennett left Sherrill House after a stay of some 24 hours because Sherrill House was quarantined – there were patients on the second floor – we were told three or four who had the flu. No one knew what kind of flu and with all of the publicity around the coronavirus, Mr. Bennett took the precaution of leaving Sherrill House rather than being exposed to the flu and his wife concurred. Especially when he heard that several months prior Sherrill House had again been under quarantine because of the flu and apparently “only a couple people” caught the flu at that time so there was nothing to worry about. The outrage at Robert Bennett making such a decision, which he had every right to make on his own behalf as did his Health Care Proxy – was astounding.

After that experience Mr. Bennett and his wife read the reviews about Sherrill House online and were totally freaked out by what they read – people who died because nurses did not respond to their buzzer for a very long time and more.

To call the police and incarcerate someone in the hospital by sending the police to pick them up – twice – because they refuse the service Somerville Cambridge Elder Services tries to force on them when they have said clearly they prefer any necessary services at home and paid for privately, should be a crime. That is an abuse of the police and since Mr. Bennett is an African American from the national experience with the police forces around the country that possibly opened Mr. Bennett to serious physical harm.

In addition, Mr. Bennett’s health has now been negatively affected by all of this. We have witness statements which talk about how Mr. Bennett was walking around Harvard Square with his wife and enjoying the sunshine and their life together before the police forcibly invaded his home on March 3rd and again on March 6th while refusing to give him or his wife a copy of the order which the police claim gave them the right to break down his door and go into the house doing whatever damage was necessary to take him out refusing to listen if he said no and taking him out against his will.

Instead, with the police involvement he has been confined to a very small room at Massachusetts General Hospital – which he shares and is so tight there is no room between his chair and the bed and he goes from bed to the chair, from the chair to the bed. He had a walker, which he no longer has because he can’t walk even with such a device.

Being 87 years old and having been kept in bed from Friday to the next Friday to the next Wednesday and still ongoing, his ability to walk has been impaired and it is possible other health issues may arise because of his confinement imposed unethically by the Courts and illegally by Somerville Cambridge Elder Services.

Is this to scare others into accepting the Somerville Cambridge Elder Services when they come around because you too may be so confined and the police may be called to enforce their right to control your health care by lying, hiding the truth, causing fraudulent claims to be filed on your Medicare insurance causing you to have to pay 20% for services you rejected and Medicare having to pay 80% for services that were forced treatment and hospital confinements which should not have happened.

We have found people – and in reviews also – who complain about the Somerville Cambridge Elder Services because of the way they squander the agency’s money – taking cabs to the bank – and in many other ways, calling it a very amateurish group.

The kind of ignoring and destruction of a persons’ rights is huge and this has been a horrifying experience for all.

It is time to release Robert Bennett from being held in “police lockup” at Massachusetts General Hospital under a protective order which was spuriously obtained. Yes, he is still being held under Police lockup. No one can visit him. His wife can only visit 1/2 per day and then only with a Security Guard and Police present. She is treated in very abusive ways. And most days she is not allowed to visit for one reason or another – if you read other blogs you would have seen when she was told her husband had taken out a restraining order against her and she could not go up to his room under any circumstances. That was not true but she was not allowed to visit that day and the Security Guard who said such a Mr. DuBois also put her out of the hospital.

The attorneys the Bennetts hired did not take care of this and should have immediately filed an emergency motion for his release. They took the case knowing his health would be at risk if they delayed in any way and in spite of that they made their busyness with other things a higher priority which has contributed to this.

It is time for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Massachusetts General Hospital and all others involved to release this man from confinement and take whatever steps are necessary to reimburse him for what they have caused; make his wife whole after demeaning and disgracing her with their charges of abusing her husband when that was not true and so much more. It is past the time for the Governor, Mayor of Cambridge and others to step in and stop this abuse of this African American family in this case – by the state – this is a state agency.

Mr. Bennett, on information and belief, is not the only person who has been so held in the past – turned into an “indigent” so the forces doing the deed can better access Medicare. It is time for all of this to be investigated by those who do such and it is past time for this cover-up to stop and be uncovered.

The attempt now is to blame others who Somerville/Cambridge Elder Services weaponized to help them in this effort and that also needs to stop.

Robert Bennett needs to be put in an ambulance and sent home IMMEDIATELY, especially given all of the coronavirus warnings to which he would be a primary target. This needs to be done without trying to force Robert Bennett and his family to accept all the trappings being attempted – which are needed to take Somerville Cambridge Elder Services off the hook and leave them blameless so they can continue in their efforts to destroy others – apparently mostly African Americans.

What comes after this for the rest of us? Forced medical care and treatment – whether you want it; need it; in the place the agency harassing you or targeting you decides that should happen. Somerville/Cambridge Elder Services has been hounding this family for years.

It is tough to be African American and live in the Brattle Street neighborhood. Institutional attacks come from many places. Read other related blogs and you will see a fuller picture.
