Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett and the sexual abuse he had to suffer! It is enough, already!

Friday, July 17th, 2020

by: Robert Bennett

This has been an unbelievable experience. Without prayer I don’t know how I would have survived. I was picked up by the police and incarcerated in a hospital without my agreement and without need, unless providing a story and ‘patient’ for Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services to brag about in their fund raising materials.

I came home from the hospital not able to walk without a walker and two people holding me up – when I went into the hospital I was walking just fine, took a daily walk along the Charles River without cane or walker; my feet were so swollen I could barely stand on them the pain was so bad and none of my shoes fit – I was kept in bed, mostly on an alarm blanket for five weeks; the grief I experienced in the hospital was profound, I had not been separated from my wife for over 36 years and the pain of that was almost unbearable; I was forced to take medicines I did not want and did not need – including an anti-seizure medicine which made me sick every time they came for me to take those pills and the horrible feelings after taking, particularly the anti-seizure pills was almost unbearable I could barely swallow and had other physical things happening.

For me to be able to leave the hospital my family had to agree to have one particular home health company come to the house daily for an indefinite period of time. I had no choice over anything and neither did my wife. I did not want that to happen.

I have had enough of the health industry and the way they have exercised their power over me to the detriment of my health. It is time for all of that to stop. It has not.

What is this about? From what I have seen, my guess is that in spite of claiming in court that I was “indigent” and destitute to get their “emergency motion” over me when there was no emergency, it is about draining down our assets and moving us out of a home we have lived in for 36 years.

Because of what I have been through and continue to experience, I decided to share the letter I sent to the home health care company with its complaint about sexual abuse. It was very difficult to write and even more difficult to reach the decision to make this public.

Re: Sexual Abuse Complaint – (sent from Robert Bennett to the Home Health Care Company he was forced to accept.)

Your company was assigned to me for Home Health care by Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services.

It has been a horrendous experience which no one should have to endure.

I had a very good experience with the nurse – AWA – who came to take my blood pressure, etc.

However, an Occupational Therapist came when we were expecting a Physical Therapist at that date and time with no one saying anything to me as to why the change.

The OT was named Becca and this was her second visit.

Becca wanted to “evaluate” my ability to take a shower.  I was a bit perplexed by this because she came mid-morning and I had already showered, shaved and was dressed for the day.  She insisted that she had to see me shower and it had to be in the nude.  That was a horrendous request.

She gave her credentials and training and  insisted that this is what she was supposed to do or she would not be doing her job.  She went on about needing to see what I needed in the process of showering to stay “safe”.  I objected strenuously.  However, Becca insisted and said I would need “equipment” and she needed to see what that was. 

My wife was in the bathroom at the time and told Becca that we showered together and there was nothing unsafe about that so neither she nor I understood this request.  After a back and forth which was not pleasant and during which Becca said she would have to report back that I was “uncooperative” and that might not have good results, I agreed to shower – with my jockey shorts and undershirt on. That would have given Becca any information she needed since those are skin tight underclothes.  That was not adequate because Becca said she could not see what she needed to see during the shower.

Again, a threat came of my being uncooperative, which she would have to report.

My wife said if I did not want to shower nude in front of Becca I would not.  

Since I was fully functioning – was not bed-ridden – was working every day – walking, eating, everything done for me by me, I didn’t understand why this was an issue.

Becca then agreed to my showering with my jockey shorts on.  It was very ugly and totally unnecessary, putting me in a horrendous situation.

I got into the shower, turned it on and Becca reached into the shower, grabbed my jockey shorts and tried to rip them off.  My wife stopped her by grabbing her hand and releasing my underpants from Becca’s grip.

That was the end of that and we asked Becca to leave.

She called a few days later to say she was returning and would need to order a shower chair and other “equipment” for me to use in the shower.  Since I clearly did not need that equipment and had checked with those training home health care people and discovered what Becca did was totally outside anything they trained or recommended, they suggested we contact you about what happened.

I had no idea this is what your “homecare” was about.  I can’t imagine what would have happened to me if I were not able to fend for myself and if my wife had not been in the bathroom.

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

How evil! And they are doing this with tax payers money in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Of course, taxpayers will not benefit as Robert Bennett’s estate is stripped of everything and that money goes to private individuals involved in what we believe is a criminal conspiracy. Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services wants to take Robert Bennett away from his family forcibly and put his guardianship under the Jewish Center for Family and Children. That has always mystified us because Robert Bennett has adult children who are fairly substantial financially and personally; he has extended family who would and have been there for him; he has a wife who would never put him in a nursing home and has more than adequately taken care of him as he has of her. Does this come under “The perils of being Black.” Your assets, for which you worked all of your life don’t belong to you they can be stripped away from you by those lusting after what you have and have figured out how to take what they have not earned.

That Jewish Center for Family and Children has been involved in other such moves which the families are still fighting to get their family member released from being totally destroyed physically and financially some five years later. All of their resources going to attorneys and others. The estate of the person so selected going to pay salaries of many people – some of his family restricted from having access to him on any level. It is a pattern – which has been repeated many times – sometimes even with Blacks who are not well off, but struggling to make ends meet. Whatever assets they have acquired have been taken and when they are totally in poverty they are released from under all that went before and they are on the street. Some have had family pick them up off the street and continue to care for them and try to bring them back to where they were before they were stripped of everything including their dignity.

Robert Bennett and Marceline Donaldson at Whole Foods on May 20, 2020.

Sorry for the look, but this is what happens when hair salons have been closed for a few months.

Take a good look at Robert. If this is how one looks, acts, gets around when incapacitated, maybe we should all try that way of being. From Marceline – “We were delighted to meet a friend at Whole Foods in Fresh Pond and she took our picture. This was May 20, 2020. We will post other pictures on Robert living his life with all that he is doing.”

SCES and others claimed he was “incapacitated” and described his lack of every kind of mental capability. What they did not say is that they are the people who unsuccessfully tried to “incapacitate” him. They filed a “Guardianship” action the day after he was let out of Mass General Hospital.

They had an agreement with Robert’s son that he could leave Mass General Hospital and they would back off all of their past actions. They wanted Robert’s son to agree that a family Health Care Company would be allowed to see him periodically. Robert’s family agreed and complied – SCES broke the agreement immediately, the day after Robert left Mass General, by having Attorney O’Sullivan file a guardianship suit against Robert to have him put under the care of Jewish Center for Family and Children and then delivered to a Hebrew Nursing Home. That was done by SCES with papers served the day after Robert left Mass General Hospital for home.

Some interesting observations that we are now investigating:

  1. Robert’s family thought this was being paid for by Robert’s medical insurance, but we investigated and have discovered that is not true. The reason for Robert having been identified in the first court hearing as indigent is one of the first steps in what we believe to be a criminal conspiracy. Once indigent the police come to take you out of your home without questioning how could a man who lives in such a house be indigent? Second step, the police take you to the designated hospital – we have serious questions about that designated hospital having been Mount Auburn and only became Mass General when Robert and his wife insisted that was where he had been until the day before. If it was not going to be Mass General they were going to have to drag Robert physically out of his house. At the designated hospital there is no charge for an “indigent” person being admitted especially if it is at the request of Protective Services from some part of Massachusetts – in this case Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services. We are still trying to discover who pays the hospital bill. Is this a contribution by Mass General? Does the state pay the bill – which means the taxpayers of Massachusetts or is there some other funding for this. Five weeks incarcerated at Mass General is not a small amount of money – not including all the other fees involved – the lawyers fees and much more. What we also don’t understand is how could Mass General not put this all together? A patient comes into the hospital for brain surgery with adequate insurance. Discharged after surgery. Two days later the patient is brought back as “indigent” and is checked into Mass General with who paying the bill? And no questions from Mass General? I hate to think this hospital that – so far – Robert and Marceline think of very highly is a part of all this! However, we have nothing to show otherwise. MGH has had more than one such “patient” forced into their hospital. At some point “innocence” – “ignorance to what is happening” – all of those kind of excuses by MGH or any other hospital involved in these kinds of kidnapping shenanigans begins to wear thin. What is the criteria before MGH begins to be accused – as the others should be accused – of kidnapping.

2. This really comes down to fraud perpetrated against many – especially taxpayers, Mass General Hospital, and so many more.

Robert Bennett was forced into Mass General using the Cambridge police to do the forcing without his wife or family being given any court documents to say they could – so they does that mean they literally forced their way into the home and accomplished taking Robert Bennett out and bringing him to Mass General without fulfilling the most basic requirement – produce a court document to prove you have the authority to do what you are doing..

At Mass General, Robert Bennett was listed as “indigent” with other little notes embroidered to make the fact that Robert would be kept away from everyone who cared about him for as long as it took to “incapacitate” him.

It also explains why his wife was threatened so many times with Robert being sent immediately to a nursing home if she did not apply for Mass Health – in spite of the fact that they had adequate health insurance and they did not qualify for Mass Health. The pattern this “criminal conspiracy” needed to move along the way it had in the past was the patient having Mass Health – whether they qualified or not. We are still trying to discover why the threats, over a couple months, of what would happen is Marceline did not apply for Mass Health. They couldn’t, all of a sudden, use Robert’s health insurance – which they knew about – that would have clouded the story they were setting up to tell.

If you tried to visit him at MGH you could not because he was not listed as a patient. He was listed on a special list and we don’t know what those on that list have in common. You could not call him because the operator would insist there was no Robert Bennett as a patient at MGH.

So what were they hiding? Robert Bennett was a paying patient at MGH for his surgery. He was a “charity” patient for this forced stay because that is what was needed for SCES and their friends and supporters to take over another human beings life, reputation, assets, and remove him from his family.

Thought I would share this to bridge any unbelievability that an African American man who is totally able to negotiate life physically and otherwise on his own would have to face the kind of vicious harassment Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett is having to face being pursued for his estate by Attorney James O’Sullivan, Ms. Nora Al-Wetaid, Ms. Angela Clary, Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services and others. Our investigation says this is a criminal conspiracy and needs to be investigated by law enforcement.

It is a pattern which is a variation on that which is happening on the border with migrants separated from their families and more. Sort of reminds you of slavery in these United States during which those in charge felt no problems with the way they destroyed slave families; separated slave families; cheated slave families out of any and everything they could and so much more.

We see this as a criminal conspiracy which others have had to also face and negotiate using resources they earned and are now being threatened with poverty because of the greed of the people perpetrating this criminal conspiracy. It may have been legal during slavery days, it is not legal today.

City Council people need to move to stop this from happening in their cities. State Senators and others need to stop this from happening and from using taxpayers money to push this conspiracy to increase the wealth of some and destroy the wealth and life of others.

My favorite story – comparing Massachusetts to the very deep south.

We are looking into what happened to an African American man living in the deep south. Like Robert Bennett he was living in an otherwise all white neighborhood which had kept blacks out for a couple centuries. He bought the home of a very high up member of the KKK. They thought this was great because oil rights were involved and the KKK former owner of the home saw this as a way to sell his house and get the oil rights because colored folks were to “ignorant” to know how to stop him. And then he could be relieved of his property. Unfortunately for the KKK person, that ignorant colored person did know how to get the oil rights which were his anyway by virtue of his home ownership. What happened? The African American wound up incarcerated in the hospital just like Robert. He was picked up by the police and forced into the hospital when no one was home – so his family did not know where he was and they looked all over for him. It took four weeks for this African American man in his 80’s to be able to use a telephone to call his family to let them know where he was. With cell phones – he didn’t have his – pay phones are no longer around for public use – hospital phones were not allowed to him and so much more. His family worked to get him out and home after the expenditure of many resources which should not have been so spent.

Massachusetts brags so about its “openness”. In reality Massachusetts has the reputation for being one of the most racist places in the United States. Sophisticatedly so, but racist nevertheless. Here is a parallel case – how similar things were handled in Massachusetts and in a deep south state in about the same time frame.

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. 

1933 Mississippi/2020 Greater Boston,MA.

Saturday, March 28th, 2020

Rev. Dr. Robert A. Bennett – the incredible, quiet, lovely, caring person who spent his life working for others, giving to others, helping those who crossed his path and needed help that he had to give has been made an example of in the tradition of the KKK possee which rode at night across places like Mississippi and Alabama to destroy the home, property, health and life of a N***** who didn’t know his place and didn’t stay in his place.

It is always amazing the people who joined that possee. They wore their faces covered so they could rejoin society the next day as though everything was fine and they were not a part of the ugly destruction of life that happened the night before. So do the people who have caused this to happen to Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett. They have rejoined society posing as loving, caring individuals working to help the elderly. This all amounts to elder abuse and will continue if not investigated and stopped.

You will not read about this nor see the story in any media. The only stories of interest to our current media that they will cover and report on are stories about coronavirus. That sells papers and electronic media and it costs very little to produce. So the media can rake in profits from their commercial advertisers and very little of those profits will be spent on producing the news and other stories for their consuming public.

Robert has been incarcerated in Massachusetts General Hospital for almost four weeks. He is not there for his health. He is there because he dared to achieve; to live in a neighborhood reserved for that class of Northern Europeans who have achieved mightily. His living in that neighborhood brings down the achievement and identity of those who spent much to have that privilege and that can’t be left to stand.

All through their 36 years living in the Brattle Street neighborhood in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the shadow of Harvard University, Dr. Bennett and his wife have had to endure, fight off, continue to carry on their lives under some of the most stressful conditions around. None of the attacks worked and they ranged from psychic to physical – Marceline Donaldson had her toes stomped recently by someone high up in the medical field – a new neighbor who found his multi-million dollar house was practically next door to an African American family. Something they didn’t know until they moved in after spending much to renovate their new house. This is someone rumored to work at one of the major hospitals in the Greater Boston area. What the Donaldson/Bennett’s experienced and endured is now the stuff of legend.

This latest is the arrival and movement into their lives of the 21st Century KKK type possee. People who previously didn’t know one another, but who worked together to achieve their goal of destroying this gentle soul.

And who has come to their rescue? Mostly those who experienced the same things because others don’t want to get involved. Which is why extreme racism in this country has endured over so many generations. It serves a wanted purpose.

” I talked to Robert by telephone yesterday and it was heart breaking. He has moved into his head trying to survive what he doesn’t understand. Why am I here – when can I leave – why have I been so treated”. and many more such questions. The same questions those watching and hearing about this travesty are asking. I understood what he was saying and why – he was rehearsing his life’s history and reliving a large part of it. I doubt that anyone else would because they don’t know and haven’t lived that history. When I talked to him he said he was in Denmark and was waiting for me to join him there. He went on to talk about things that actually happened in his life when he was in Denmark which was a good time in his life and one he was re-experiencing in his mind. The pain for me was unbearable remembering just a couple weeks ago standing in the Harvard Square Post Office – on a Thursday before the Friday this long incarceration started – talking with Xonabelle Clark, a friend of ours, having a great, fun conversation with someone we hadn’t seen in quite sometime. Robert was totally a part of that conversation. We walked to the post office from home, walked around Harvard Square and went home to enjoy a meal together. After these last four weeks of incarceration in Mass General Hospital, it will take some time before Robert can hold such a conversation with friends again. Before the surgery Robert had some memory loss. Right after the surgery that began to subside almost completely because the pressure was off the brain and his memory was back almost totally. Today, Robert would have to use a walker to take that same walk. Mass General Hospital has aided and abetted evil.” (Marceline Donaldson)

During the time Robert was in the hospital – all three almost four weeks – his wife was not able to talk to him via telephone. Why? Because the group that put him there and is determined to keep him there got a Protective Ordere – to “protect” Robert from his wife. By claiming his wife abused him, they were able to move her aside so she could not see or talk to him except very rarely. They were then able to claim that Robert was indigent ( in other words poverty striken and destitute) to open the Medicare pocket book even wider for their program for elders to succeed and their personal vocational goals to be achieved.

The few times she was allowed to visit Robert was limited to 1/2 hour per day and then only in the presence of Security Guards and Policemen (armed with guns).

How was she able to talk to him today – actually call him on the telephone using a telephone number for a telephone on the side of his bed when her telephone calls to others to attempt to talk to him in the past were met with phones being hung up on her as she made her request to talk to her husband? A friend called to talk to Robert today and that friend’s last name was Schlossberg.

Ms. Schlossberg didn’t get to talk to Robert – even with that illustrious name. She experienced what Marceline experienced. She was put on hold for some 15 minutes until someone else came to the phone and transferred her to the Security Unit. After providing identification as to who she was and waiting another 10 plus minutes, someone came back to the phone, told her could not talk to Robert and they hung up. We have the statement backing this up. We don’t write unless we have back-up statements.

However, the name Schlossberg must have gotten through when the security checked the persons identity because within 2 minutes of Ms. Schlossberg hanging up, Marceline’s phone rang at home and she was told that if she wanted to talk to her husband – that could be arranged. She was given a telephone number and told he would have a phone next to his bed on the side of the bed and he would be able to talk to her when she called and he could even call her. This happened over 3 weeks after Robert had been brought into the hospital against his will. Before that there was no telephone contact possible. Talking to doctors in the past, Marceline was told by them she could talk to her husband all she had to do was call the floor. When she tried doing what the doctors suggested – to call Robert after those doctors said she could talk to him – she was told that she could not.

Her 1/2 hour per day visits were not everyday because there was always a reason why she couldn’t visit her husband that day. The hospital was short staffed – the Security Guard told her Robert had filed a restraining order against her (which was not true – but used to refuse to let her see him that day and forced her to experience the ignominy of being thrown out of Massachusetts General Hospital. ) And on and on it went.

Every generation in these United States has had a way to force African Americans to experience truly horrible times. Each generation has lost beautiful black men and women to unspeakable criminal acts which they generated against themselves by being black.

Do you remember the young Mississippi teen ager who was beaten beyond recognition by the KKK possee, killed and thrown in the swamp? – He would only be about 75 today – so not that long ago. And he was not alone, there have been many such – hung, burned, beaten, bones broken and so much more. Today you have the modern KKK possee achieving the same goals, destroying blacks in vicious, evil ways. And with all of our media – what of this have you heard or read about?

Has that sort of thing stopped? No! It has changed to keep up with the times – those kind of things continue to happen. We stand by and watch and then wring our hangs at “them” – “those others” and all the names we give ourselves to place blame outside of ourselves so we can escape responsibility for the act, but our identity can benefit from the results of the action. These ignominies continue with every generation and today they are intense because the numbers of minorities threaten to outstrip the majority for the first time in American history.

The same thing happened in Germany under Hitler. The holocaust didn’t happen when Jews were in the Ghettos and under control and under the feet of the so called Superior Race. It happened when the walls of the Ghettos could no longer hold Jews back and they began to move out with successful businesses, families, social lives and more. It was at that point that the holocaust took hold and that “Superior Race” started rounding up to destroy Jews before they were wealthy enough, numerous enough, powerful enough to take over. The great fear driving all of this, even today!

That “Superior Race” was always a myth and no one knew the lie it told better than those who identified as such.

You see that now in the large waves of whites moving out of California (becoming a majority minority state) fleeing to New England to maintain their power and control over all. And doesn’t that reflect the history of slavery? There were slaves in the south as well as the north, but the plantations were in the south and the money made by the barrel full happened in the New England area where that truth is still denied. Even during the so-called times of the Abolitionists it was New England that held the power over; whose money was dependent on the continuation of the slave trade, and whose identity was dependent upon the continuation of slavery as showing society with a group of people “less than”, sub-human, and more so those others could be “better than”, more elegant than, defining of human beauty and used as cattle and more.

All of the above is incorporated into what is and has happened to Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett.

The KKK type possee came for him with an overwhelming police force – not because he was a criminal nor because he was a terrorist but because he was an African American out of his place – living someplace other than amongst his own kind in the ghetto and more.

Take a close look at what happened and is happening to Dr. Bennett. Look at the group incarcerating him? Look around and you will see others experiencing the same thing. It is a quick, very private way to rid this society of successful blacks who think they can do whatever their talent, education, lives dictate. They are blacks who bought the American Dream without realizing that is the White American Dream and does not apply to African Americans nor is it meant to apply to other minorities..

You can sort of live it if you understand which neighborhoods are off limits to you. You can sort of live it if you understand your place even within your chosen religion. You can sort of live it if you don’t bother the rest of society with your knowledge and understand of how this system of bigotry works and you go along to get along smiling broadly all the time.

The number of times the Bennett/Donaldsons have been told through this ordeal that they needed to “go along to get along” – “play the game until you get out from under this” and so many more similar-type comments – those numbers of times are inumerable. What is that really saying? Get back into your stereotype – who do you think you are doing your own thing?

Every one of Robert Bennett’s rights have been taken away from him – with the help and clear understanding by the Health Care Industry of what it was doing. It is the strongest industry in the world today and the one which has brought bigotry back into the system like never before.

Hospitals and other such “health” institutions have this other side where you enter through the back door and are kept until you are actually destitute. Young, arrogant whites – male and female – carry out stripping you of every part of your dignity and self respect, even into your identity that they and others like them can reach. They are very good at it because the first thing hidden from them is their extreme racism. And racism is not the only part of the national bigotry they support, make stronger, and much more powerful than it has ever been.

The institutions are becoming bolder and justifying their participation – why? Money, greed and more. It is, afterall, Massachusetts General Hospital where Robert Bennett is being held and not for health reasons. If he is ever released, that will come with trappings to make you think it was his health and concern for his health that caused this imprisonment,.

The police picked up Robert Bennett and forced him into the hospital on a psychiatric charge – that is what a section 12 is about. You cannot get out until you have passed a psychiatric exam by a psychiatrist. Robert Bennett, who had not even an inkling of psychiatric probmes passed their exam and was discharged because they had no reason to hold him.

He was “arrested” again just two days later on a section 12 – identical to the one under which he was first “arrested”. He is still in the hospital because this time unscrupulous attorneys and arrogantly bigoted health workers went to Court to get a Protective Order which was full of lies, but they knew which lies they had to tell to the judge and they knew which judge to tell them to. The Protective Order kept him in the hospital because at home was his wife who that group of totally unscrupulous people had charged with abusing him. They knew the system and worked it well to their advantage.

You, the average American citizen is paying for this – which is costing a small fortune. Not just the hospital fees – which are being charged and collected fraudulently, but the fees from the police and so many other areas contributing to the cost of this action.

Without the “Protective Order” Robert Bennett could only be held for 72 hours as happened during his first incarceration. However, with the addition of this Protective Order, which was impounded so it could not be seen by the public, he could be held indefinitely – they could claim guardianship over him, but what they really wanted were the commissions from the insurance collected by Massachusetts General Hospital under these false conditions.

These same people responsible for all of this offered Robert Bennett and his wife “free” services – someone to clean their house, “for free”; someone to cook for him “for free”; someone to walk the dog they don’t have “for free”. And when they refused – this is the result. If they had taken all of those “for free” services this probably would not have happened. The Elder Affairs Office needs to get its share of the insurance pie and this is how they do it. Those “for free” offers are actually paid for out of Robert Bennett’s Health Insurance.

Why is Health Insurance so high? and so costly? It is full of such graft and corruption. Get that out and costs will go down dramatically. Do you hear anyone talking about such? No!

That kind of graft also insures that the number and economic viability of African Americans in this society can be reduced dramatically, quietly and permanently controlled as a side act of the Health Care System.

Why does Massachusetts General Hospital allow itself to be so mis-used?

By that misuse it participates in the South African style apartheid which is the Massachusetts Health Care System. But lets not limit this to Massachusetts, that is true across the country.

“Before Robert was incarcerated I didn’t know Mass General Hospital had its “Brown and Black Door”. Today, it is clear that kind of bigotry exists and is kept from public eyes.

As long as we were in Lunder and the neurological side where great work was being done we did not see many blacks or brown peoples. Roberts second incarceration opened the door to that side of Mass General. Where Robert Bennett is currently incarcerated the racism is stark.

Walk to the reception desk on his floor and there are two black women sitting right behind the counter. There is something separating those two from the rest of the women in that entrance area and the rest of the women are white and clearly have a higher position than the two black women seated at the entry counter.

Enter the area and look up and down the hallways and you see mostly black. In Lunder in the neurological area you saw mostly white. IN fact, in the same positions you saw all whites in Lunder.

We were excited about Mass General Hospital because when Robert was brought in, the neurologists and others who were examining and attending to him were all colors and nationalities. That has a very limited area. Once you get into the bowels of the beast where the ugliness happens, the color turns black.

“I don’t know if Robert will ever get out of there. Or if he will be the same once out that he was before all of this high stress, anxiety and more were dumped on him as he recovered from surgery. He was discharged after his brain surgery at Mass General in very good shape. In fact, we were ecstatic by what happened. He was discharged after the first section 12 in good shape. The discharge papers said – his vital signs were normal as was his blood pressure. No medicines were prescribed and etc.”

I doubt that would be his condition today when and if he is let out of Mass General. So they healed on the one hand and destroyed their healing on the other – of an African American man.

When we last talked to Robert – which was yesterday – he sounded under enormous stress. His voice sounded as though he had a huge cold. He was confused as to why so many people were leaving his floor – and he was still there with no one even attempting to say why that was happening and why he was not allowed to leave. He has not experienced the sun or gone for walks or gotten close to a window since he was thrown into this situation.

He knows prisoners are being let out of prison, but what has he done so egregious that he is still incarcerated with no criminal charges.

We have Somerville Cambridge Elder Affairs group – an agency of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts actually engaging in elder abuse. By charging Robert’s 82 year old wife with abuse and putting both of them into this kind of situation is pure elder abuse. And normally if there is one such group engaging in that kind of activity there are more. We have certainly heard of more. The stories have circulated for quite a few years and nothing has come of them. Certainly no state investigation nor other kind of investigation to stop such abuse. it is profitable. Its purpose seems to be to gain insurance money using really spurious techniques. Robert Bennett was classified as “indigent” – poverty stricken because that opens more pockets of medicare money to be misused.

The Elder Affairs group just this Friday responded to the Bennett/Donaldson attorneys by trying to claim guardianship over Robert Bennett. Things just go from bad to worse. Cover-up one ugly with something even uglier. but their interest was not guardianship, they wanted to maintain their right to raid medicare using Robert Bennett’s insurance. they wanted to continue destroying families by picking out family members who would carry out their wishes. Weaponizing family members against each other.

It is ugly, vicious, and being allowed to continue. the Court is laying down requirements for Robert Bennett’s release. Putting those requirement on his wife as though she is the one who caused this. Putting payment for what Somerville Cambridge Elder Services and James O’Sullivan have done on Robert Bennett’s pocket book and Medicare.

All of this, from what we’ve seen amounts to Medicare fraud among other charges. What happens now! The drama has been extremely painful and daily. The pattern, however, seems to be set from other such cases.

Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett – still incarcerated in the hospital

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

without medical reasons and where beds are needed for the coronavirus. How come?

We have the beginnings of a reason that we see – maybe right, maybe wrong, but it makes sense to us, looking at all the facts.

1)  Besides being held against his will in Mass General Hospital having been put there by Somerville Cambridge Elder Services, many other of Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett’s rights were trampled – including his right to vote.

If you miss voting because of your choice then shame on you.  

If you miss voting because someone or some institution has taken away your freedom of movement intentionally and without cause, that is an institution taking away  a very sacred right that you have enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.

If that right is taken away on the day you were to vote – you asked to be allowed to vote – and that request was rejected more than once,  that taking away of your right to vote was intentional and caused by force.

By forcibly incarcerating Robert Bennett against his wishes, against his rights and for the apparent reasons of greed, control over, and more is making an example of Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett to scare others into going along with you and your program.  

In the process, if it takes away your right to vote,  it  dishonors the sacrifices that so many have made to gain the right to vote – especially African American men and women.  

What happened with Robert Bennett sets in place a precedent which is re-enforced in other ways by the same and similar groups – insuring that the rights for future generations to vote are in jeopardy.

You can vote if……..you can vote unless…….you can vote, but we are finding ways to prevent and limit your group to all of the votes it should have.

By illegally and unethically incarcerating Robert Bennett on March 3rd, in spite of the fact that he asked several times about voting – from the hospital bed in which he was put and kept on March 3rd, he was very effectively prevented from this sacred right so guaranteed by the Constitution.

He was also not fed, not provided water and had to ask several times because he was just out of the hospital. Being put through such deprivations could have moved his recovery down several steps putting the  maintenance of his health in the future in jeopardy.  Although it was claimed this was being done for his health. Through all of this the one thing being put in such a place as to jeopardize his health is being claimed as protecting his health and recovery.

2)  We think Attorney James O’Sullivans’ right to practice law needs to be called into question, investigated and if reason is found, his license taken away and he be barred from the practice of law.

Attorney O’Sullivan went to Court and used his familiarity with judges and others in the Court to obfuscate, we feel to deliberately not present all the evidence, and ask the Court to hear his side without notifying the other side of the action he was asking which would result in Attorney O’Sullivan and the people he represented incarcerating a citizen of the Commonwealth very deliberately and arrogantly without a hearing. When this is done claiming “health” reasons, incarceration is becoming more common and being used to incarcerate more and more African Americans against whom criminal charges cannot be brought, but they can be entrapped and incarcerated if they dare enter a hospital.

When one is held against one’s will – no matter the place – that is incarceration.  It does not have to be an actual, physical prison built for the purpose of taking away a citizens rights to freely move around.  If one is kept, even in a hospital against one’s will, especially with either a spurious reason or an outright fraudulent reason,  the person, institution and/or groups which caused such and caused it knowingly for reasons of greed, control over and more, need to be called to account for their actions.

We are asking that this be done with Attorney O’Sullivan and the Somerville Cambridge Elder Affaires group along with other such groups across the Commonwealth and investigated.  We are asking that their monies be held up and only restored to those groups who do not and have not violated the rights nor irresponsibly or otherwise destroyed the assets of the people they claim to help nor have irresponsibly managed the monies received in the form of grants from the state or other institutions, groups or individual people.

Attorney O’Sullivan went to Court and asked for and received an ex-parte hearing which he knew could result in depriving Rev Dr. Robert Bennett of his freedom and cause him to be incarcerated – no matter how long or how short a time – and asked that the hearing be held without giving the Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett notice of such a hearing.  For the court to comply with such a request and with the other actions that the Court validated makes the Court complicit in what has happened with Rev. Dr. Bennett.  We ask that the judge so involved also be investigated and  removed, if such is found.  If the judge is retired and came back for just this hearing we ask that his right to be re-called be removed.  

What needs to be kept up front is that Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett is African American, is well known in the community and whatever happened to him would create a chilling effect in the African American community and make them and their assets open for raiding by those so disposed.

Additionally, Attorney O’Sullivan, during the hearing either intentionally, in collusion with his client, or for some other reason kept crucial information from the Court to allow his arguments to have weight they would not have had in a hearing in which both parties were represented.

3)  Attorney O’Sullivan asked the Court to take away from Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett his right to choose who he wanted as his Health Care Proxy.  

Attorney O’Sullivan knew Rev. Dr. Bennett had chosen who he wanted several  months before Attorney O’Sullivan went to Court and that choice was made with a probate attorney of his choice – it was signed and that signature witnessed by people who he knew and to whom he was known for some 20 to 30 years and that in addition, a second Health Care Proxy with Dr. Bennett’s choice of who he wanted as his Health Care Proxy was a part of the documents Attorney O’Sullivan and/or his clients had in their possession naming the same Health Care Proxy some many months after the first was created and that made by a very reputable institution – the person at Massachusetts General Hospital whose job it  is to deal with patients and their choices of a health care proxy.

The second Health Care Proxy was made because the attorney who created the first left in place a typographical error in date in that Health Care Proxy – that inaccurate date coming on the line after the signature of Dr. Bennett.  All people involved, however, knew the correct date as did Attorney O’Sullivan and the group he represented.

Because they saw that typo, Mass General Hospital stepped in with another Health Care Proxy to clear up what might have created confusion and they did that after an extensive interview with the patient.

Both of those Health Care Proxies were ignored by Attorney O’Sullivan.  If they were not and were indeed presented to the Court and and the Court replaced the choice of Dr. Bennett with a Health Care Proxy of their own choosing, that is a gross violation of Dr. Bennett’s rights.   Dr. Bennett had specifically said, at the time of the creation of both Heatlh Care Proxies that he did not want the person the Court established as his Health Care Proxy, making decisions about his health. In fact, the reason for creating both those Health Care Proxies was to honor Dr. Bennett’s wishes to make sure Dr. Bennett’s wife was in that position and the person named by the Court was not because a Health Care Proxy surfaced with that person’s name and Dr. Bennett wanted to keep the record clear as to his choice.

The damage to Dr. Bennett is incalculable from actions taken by Attorney O’Sullivan and it was done knowingly by Attorney O’Sullivan with the intention of gaining power and control over someone who had assets – including insurance – which Attorney O’Sullivan’s clients could then raid.  Attorney O’Sullivan was clearing a path over which he clients could run, cleaning out Dr. Bennett’s assets.

Once these initial moves were successful it cleared the way for guardianship over Dr. Bennett and the person or persons with such guardianship could have easily “cleaned out” Dr. Bennett, making him indigent.

Those intentions are clear in the way Attorney O’Sullivan characterized Dr. Bennett in that hearing.  He identified Dr. Bennett’s financial status as “indigent”  in spite of the fact that both Attorney Sullivan and his clients knew this was not true.

The end intent of this action is shown clearly in the beginning of this legal action.

4)  To justify removing Dr. Bennett’s wife as his Health Care Proxy, Attorney O’Sullivan claimed in his filing that Dr. Bennett’s wife abused him and he should immediately be removed from his home because of such. Libeling Dr. Bennett’s wife and attempting to use the possibility of publicly claiming such to keep her quiet and let this abuse of Dr. Bennett by the Court, by Attorney O’Sullivan by Somerville Cambridge Elder Services go forward.

Attorney O’Sullivan knew that was untrue and brought this charge to the court in spite of knowing it was not true.  In addition, not only did he have no proof at all, but Somerville Cambridge Elder Services, Attorney O’Sullivan’s clients, also knew this was not true and they brought this charge to win their claim removing Dr. Bennett’s wife to smooth the way for them to financially destroy Dr. Bennett and his wife and thereby enrich others with what they could rip off.

We ask that this group be investigated with how they have handled the monies and other assets they have handled or caused to be spent claiming it was for the benefit of clients that they have served.

This is the group which, before this action was brought, had some anger because the Bennett’s refused to accept their “free” services to provide someone to clean their home; someone to cook for them; someone to walk their pet (which they do not have); plus other services “for free”, which in fact, would have been charged to their insurance – and depending upon the terms of their insurance would have caused the Bennetts’ to pay out monies not necessary and or more – and – which are services the Bennetts’ felt they did not need nor want especially if it meant taking such possibilities away from those who did need and could use such “free” services.

This is also the group which had been following the Bennett’s several years before  they moved with Attorney O’Sullivan in this life and property destroying action.

5) Dr. Bennett and his family have suffered much from all of this and that needs to be acknowledged.  Emotional, financial, reputation and more.

Health Industry the new Oil Industry Scam

Friday, November 22nd, 2019

We have just been through the scariest time of life. An unexpected health emergency requiring hospitalization.

We have stayed away from medicine, hospitals, doctors for our adult lives and now clearly we know, without a doubt, that was a good/great decision.

What we encountered was a money pit which makes the oil barons of old look like good samaritans on the edge of poverty. The kind of money and resources being drawn from the society by the health industry with little to no results is endless and will become even more so. So, until something changes, we are not for “Medicare for All”. That will give full and total control over the universe to those in the health industry, but only to those at the top. The rest will be scrambling, working unbelievably hard for almost nothing and the maintenance of the racist, sexist system in which we were raised has a stronghold for generations. Civil Rights activists in other areas are simply a distraction giving the real continuation of White Supremacy a chance to develop to its full strength such as has never happened before.

The first thing we encountered was the entitlement and arrogance of those on the front line as you go in the door. You know clearly you are in a territory where – without some kind of uniform or connection to the health industry, you are second, third and fourth class citizens.

The second thing we encountered was the incredible racism – based on skin color – that is totally expected and has created a ghetto like none we have ever seen.

After having been escorted to an examining room, which was a small space with equipment and a sort of hospital bed with a curtain separating you from the outside you have a few hours to look around before you come to anyone’s attention. Once inside this room, where you get to wait for hours for nothing, and once settled (sort of) you look around and see you are one of the privileged. Outside this small space, lining the hallways and every available wall in the place are beds with patients waiting for treatment or for one of the rooms which you now inhabit. Every available space has a gurney with an ill patient in the hospital for emergency treatment. All just lying there out in the open, seemingly ignored with their pocket books or bags or whatever they came in with on top of them on the gurney. It is gruesome.

As you look past all of humanity waiting for emergency attention because of something which sent them immediately to the hospital you see what makes your stomach wrench. Out in the middle of the room – like the space once inhabited by stock brokers with their machines to call and follow their customers stocks – were the “medical professionals”. In that central space was a sea of white. We were there for several changes of shifts and at no time did the skin color in that middle group change.

Every once in a while a wheel chair passed with a patient being wheeled someplace. There the color changed because the person pushing the wheel chair’s skin color was very dark. Other times the sea of white was lifted as a gurney with a patient was pushed past the curtain and you saw the person doing the pushing of the gurney’s skin color was very dark.

When those small spaces became vacant, which held a patient, who was now moved on someplace else, then you also saw the skin color change in the room because the person now in that, space cleaning it, had a very dark skin color.

And so it goes – the institutionalization of bigotry in all of our corporations is alive and well and moving into the next generation without comment. We have searched the news for several years and found no push back against this extreme bigotry.

Ed. Note. This is the beginning of a series of articles on what we are finding in the health industry. We feel as though we are lancing a boil which has been throbbing with pus for decades hiding out under the pretext of saving lives.__
