And the Primary Care Physician for Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

Dr. Glenn S. Kehlman was Dr. Bennett’s primary care physician. He is no longer because Rev. Dr. Bennett sent a letter dismissing Dr. Kehlmann.

We were asked to look into this area and investigate as much as possible and we did. After what we found I feel as though I need a long, very hot shower to wash away the extreme racism that we found doing this investigation.

There are the basics: Dr. Glenn Kehlmann, MD is an internal medicine specialist in Brookline, MA and has been practicing for 37 years. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in 1983 and specializes in internal medicine. He is a part of the Beth Israel Deaconness Washington Square Group in Brookline, Massachusetts.

We have copied the letter sent to Dr. Kehlmann by Rev. Dr. Bennett in full because it basically has almost everything that we found. Dr. Kehlmann was Rev. Dr. Bennett’s PCP because he was recommended by Ms. Donaldson’s daughter – Maliça Aronowitz. Apparently, he is also Ms. Aronowitz’ PCP.

During the time Dr. Kehlmann was Rev. Dr. Bennett’s PCP he was seen by Dr. Kehlmann once. The first and only time Dr. Kehlmann saw Rev. Dr. Bennett was at the end of 2019 and that is described in Rev . Dr. Bennett’s letter. It is also the first and only time Dr. Kehlmann met Rev. Dr. Bennett’s wife – Ms. Marceline Donaldson. I understand from Dr. Bennett that Ms. Donaldson was not happy with Dr. Kehlmann and said so during that trip to his office. She was unhappy about the way Dr. Kehlmann talked around Dr. Bennett as though he could neither speak, nor hear, nor understand. She asked Dr. Kehlmann to please recognize Dr. Bennett as a whole, functioning person and speak to him directly, he was quite able to respond.

According to Dr. Bennett, Ms. Donaldson was also unhappy about what she found in Dr. Kehlmann’s office and expressed those unhappinesses. When they entered the office from outside to the waiting room they directly faced a large windowed wall with many people working within the room behind that windowed wall. They seemed to be the people doing the “grunt” work for the office. They sat in that room for several minutes watching the people work in that large room behind the windowed wall and noted that they were all – without exception – African American men and women.

When Ms. Aronowitz, Ms. Donaldson and Dr. Bennett were called – their turn to see the doctor – they went down the hall a bit, turned left and walked to the back of the building. There were the offices of the doctors, nurse practitioners and others on that professional level. In that area everyone was white with the exception of a few Asians. When the trio left the back office and were leaving the building, Ms. Donaldson stopped at the window and asked the person behind the glass in the room with all African Americans if there were African Americans in other parts of the building – specifically she wanted to know if there were any African American doctors, nurses, etc. in the back part of the building which they had just left. She was told no there were none. Ms. Donaldson told her daughter and Dr. Bennett she thought they should look for another PCP with a broader view of humanity.

While in Dr. Kehlmann’s office, Dr. Bennett and Ms. Donaldson gave a copy of the Health Care Proxy, drawn up by probate attorney Donald McInnis and signed by Dr. Bennett on November 18, 2019. to both Dr. Kehlmann and to the young Asian woman who was doing quite a bit of paperwork outside Dr. Kehlmann’s office. She asked if this was the right place to turn in this Health Care Proxy because it was replacing the HCP naming Maliça Aronowitz Health Care Proxy for Dr. Bennett which she and Dr. Bennett found out about at Beth Israel Hospital which Dr. Bennett knew nothing about, had not signed and did not want to keep. She was told yes, this was the place to turn that in and so Ms. Donaldson left a copy with the “nurse” and at the same time gave another copy to Dr. Kehlmann.

When they arrived at Dr. Kehlmann’s office, Ms. Donaldson intended to ask Dr. Kehlmann to take her on as her PCP, but after she saw the room with the window and all of the African Americans behind the window with whites in the room down the hall in another part of the building she decided this was not someone she wanted as her PCP and would keep looking.

What we found interesting and tragic was that Dr. Kehlmann – who knew “Dr. Bennett through a 15 minute conversation in his office with two other people and two plus nurses present all talking while he did a very perfunctory examination of Dr. Bennett and in the process said about a couple sentences to Ms. Donaldson and Dr. Rebecca Warner – the psychologist/psychiatrist who signed the section 12 sending the police to pick up Rev. Dr. Bennett from his home and force him into Mount Auburn Hospital, knew Dr. Bennett not at all – had never met him, never examined him, never been to his home and yet she was confident enough to do something as drastic as signing the section 12. That to us is the height of irresponsibility and the attempted destruction of a human being because apparently Dr. Bennett was not worth the time to do an investigation into whatever they saw as a problem to make sure they were not making a mistake which Dr. Bennett would have to pay for over a very long period of time – as we are now seeing as we see Dr. Bennett’s reputation, his life’s work, his vocation and more evaporate into a smoke filled room of unsubstantiated allegations which Dr. Kehlmann and Dr. Warner made about Dr. Bennett.

When we were called about doing this investigation and writing our findings, we expected to find Rev. Dr. Bennett in some serious mental state not able to comprehend, etc. Instead, we found a man sitting at a desk working with his wife and another young man trying to pick up the pieces from the work they started before all of this “mess” happened.

Dr. Bennett was pulling together and organizing the work of his life. His research, lectures, books and more. The group was in the process of finding themes around which to build videos and/or other kind of technical ways to put Dr. Bennett’s life’s work on the internet for others to be able to search, use and possibly find something they could build upon.

This interruption caused by people like Dr. Kehlmann was, for us, an example of why African Americans have such a difficult time earning money and moving ahead; documenting their life’s work and more. Someone who has never held a conversation with you, knows nothing about you, doesn’t care because they don’t have time to be bothered with taking a serious look at an African American – can then ruin the entire end of a human beings life. The kind of ugliness we have seen through all of this will never leave us.

___________________________________________

The letter from Dr. Bennett to Dr. Kehlmann follows: – to date, Dr. Kehlmann has not responded to this letter. We should note here that one thing Dr. Kehlmann said which really almost destroyed us was the comment in the motion to immediately put Dr. Bennett in a nursing home because there was no technological assistance that could help him respond and Dr. Kehlman claimed it was an emergency situation which needed to be responded to immediately.

I’ve cleaned up that comment from Dr. Kehlman – meant to go to the court to back up the claim of Dr. Bennett’s “incapacitated” state. As I cleaned it up I looked across the room at Dr. Bennett working very hard on his papers and talking back and forth with the young man assisting him in that endeavor as they worked on the script for a video which will soon be on “You Tube”. This is the incapacitated man Dr. Kehlmann wanted to send to a nursing home for the rest of his life because Dr. Kehlmann claimed he could do nothing and there was no kind of technology which could help change that and no one to whom Dr. Bennett could turn to be taken care of in this almost vegetative state. Did Dr. Kehlmann’s claim come from the reality of who Dr. Bennett is or did his claim come from his racism which did not allow him to see African Americans in any other light?

Let me not mislead you. Dr. Bennett does have some memory loss, but his ability to think, function, work, walk, run, exercise, take care of himself totally is still very much intact. I wonder how many people’s lives have been ruined by such machinations. We have found one in the course of this investigation. When that investigation is complete we will put out a blog about it so you know what is happening in this world in the health industry.

Re:  Rev. Dr. Robert A. Bennett

Dear Dr. Kehlmann:

I would appreciate your removing my name as being among those for whom you are their Primary Care Physician.

It has been a very trying and extremely difficult relationship from which I have suffered and lost much.

My reasons include:

  1. When I fell because of recent eye surgery in 2019 and went to Beth Israel Hospital, I didn’t know until recently that you were to refer me to a neurologist before coming to see you for a check-up after that hospital visit.

2)  That was to happen because although Beth Israel did not find anything seriously wrong during that visit they did find dots on the CT Scan which they did not know if those dots were recent caused by the fall or if they had been there for quite a long time.  Their concern apparently, was to have me seen by a neurologist in about six weeks after that hospital visit to have another CT Scan taken to see if those dots were still the same or if they were bleeding into the space between the brain and the outside skull.

3)  My wife and I came to your office for a check-up about six weeks after that fall, you checked and said everything was fine.  But there was no neurologist referral either before or after that visit.

4)  I fell a second time in late February because our front stairs were being repaired and re-carpeted and I’d had a corneal transplant without realizing my peripheral vision in the eye so operated on was gone.  Not knowing that and not being accustomed to the loss of peripheral vision, going down the stairs, I did not see clearly and fell.

5)  My wife and I called you about that February, 2020 fall to see if we needed an appointment to come to your office, if we should go to the hospital or etc. and about the same time that was when we also discovered the neurologist referral that was supposed to happen after our first visit to your office did not get made.

6)  After being put on hold for an extended period of time the person from your office came back and said you would see me, but you were going on vacation and couldn’t see me until your returned because you were very busy getting ready for that vacation.

7)  My wife asked the person about a neurologist referral so we could see the neurologist and get a CT scan from our past visit to your office and do everything at once.

8)  Your office person put us on hold again for an extended period and came back to say you did not know any neurologists to whom to refer us.

9)  A few days after that telephone call, we had an appointment to see Dr. Green, the podiatrist.  We asked Dr. Green if he could refer us to a neurologist or if he could recommend one.  Dr. Green said that was your job and we should ask you about such a referral.  We told Dr. Green we had already called your office, but you were going on vacation and did not know of any neurologists to recommend.

10)  At the visit to your office, after my first fall, my wife and I gave you a Health Care Proxy naming my wife, Marceline Donaldson, as the health care proxy who I wanted.  We had that proxy drawn up by a probate attorney, Mr. Donald McInnis, and it was dated and signed November 18, 2019.  We had that done because of the problems we had at Beth Israel Hospital when I did not know there was a Health Care Proxy given to the Beth Israel people naming Maliça Aronowitz as the proxy.  Since she is not who I wanted as my health care proxy, we asked Mr. Donald McInnis to draw up such a form for us.

11)  When I went to Massachusetts General Hospital as a result of the second fall, it is my understanding that you faxed the Health Care Proxy which you apparently had, naming Maliça as my health care proxy instead of the one we gave to you into the person who sits outside your office to make sure another incident such as happened at Beth Israel would not happen again.

12)  When I went to MGH, I gave them my current Health Care Proxy and was told that there were two -the one I gave them and the one which had been faxed to them.

13)  Upon investigation of these two Health Care Proxy’s, MGH created a Health Care Proxy for me because there was a one character typo in the Health Care Proxy from Mr. McInnis and they wanted to be sure my wife and I were “safe”.  “Safe” because there were people running around the hospital “investigating” me and my wife for reasons none of us knew nor understood.

14)  Before giving us the MGH created Health Care Proxy, the person at MGH who handles their proxies talked with me in my hospital room in the neurology department for a very long time to make sure I knew what I was signing.

15)  Since I was very concerned about who was my health care proxy, I wanted to make sure there were no issues with my Health Care Proxy and I was very clear that the proxy from MGH was the one I wanted to be valid because my wife knows me better than anyone.

16)  It was horrifying to me to discover the things that Ms. Nora Al Wetaid attributed to you in her affidavit signed under the penalties of perjury.  Your comments and your position as my PCP caused me much trouble, helped keep me incarcerated at MGH against my will and I feel contributed to what we are discovering was a criminal conspiracy against me and my family and which took away five weeks of my life where I was treated as a criminal without cause and was not able to move very far from the seven foot by nine foot space in which I “lived” during those five weeks.

17)  My wife was charged with medical and physical abuse against me – there were claims of this abuse which were definitely not true.  My wife and I have had a very loving relationship for 36 years.  We were both respected members of this community until you and others destroyed our reputation and much more of our lives.  I do and did not have broken ribs, the bones in my legs were not splintered and other such abuses you and others atributed to my wife.

18)  I was also appalled to find people spreading comments all over about my medical history which I did not know and which they claim came from you.  I thought medical records were private, however, Somerville/Cambridge Elder and Protective Services are the people who claimed many things about my health which they spread far and wide.  They did not have my wife’s permission to access my medical records, nor did you have permission from either one of us to share my medical records with that group nor with anyone else and since my wife was my Health Care Proxy over the time this was going on, there should have been no one out there with permission to so distribute such.

Because of the abuse charges and so many other things which happened in which your name constantly surface, my wife was very badly treated by many people in and around MGH and Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services – a group that surfaced from nowhere into causing a tornado around us.

According to Ms. Al-Wetaid, you said some horrendous things about my wife – a woman you met for about 15 minutes once in your office when she accompanied me to the only time I was seen by you.

Given the above and more, I do not want you to continue as my primary care physician.

Sincerely,

Rev. Dr. Robert A. Bennett, Jr.

Member One responds: I am beginning to get the message of what is happening to Marceline and Robert. I have a grandfather (African American) who did not have much money, or income, but his story is very similar. We need to ask you to help us. The same people were involved – I could give you the names of the attorneys involved as well as the other people and what happened to my grandfather. He was in his eighties when this happened. He is today living outside of Massachusetts because he is scared to death that the Protective Services people will come after him again. They said he was incapable of making decisions on his own, etc. and called him “incapacitated”. We are ashamed to say anything to anyone – however, reading what is happening to you we want our story out in the public. He also has two friends to whom the same thing happened. We don’t know where the protective services people came from, but all of a sudden they were all over us and demanding that we get Mass Health just like what happened to Robert and Marceline. They made constant demands. My grandfather had some assets, but not much and he is now totally broke – everything he had from his life’s work is gone to the people who pushed into our family without cause.

Member Two Responds – Please say more about the “Protective Order” they have over Robert. We went through something like that with our family. The Protective Order they got, happened in a court hearing where we knew nothing about the hearing and only heard about the Protective Order. We never knew what it contained because they “impounded” it. We do know they used that to put my Uncle in a nursing home where he died last week of the Coronavirus. He would still be alive but for those folks pushing into our family. You talk about a “criminal conspiracy”. From what we experienced I think you are right on target. Please continue your work and writing. I hope we can call. We would like you to know who we are and please keep up with us. We are devastated with what happened in our family. We didn’t realize the same thing was happening to others. My Uncle was doing fine until these people just appeared on our door step. It was awful. As we went through this process they lied like dogs. I have never felt so helpless in life as not being able to help my Uncle. He was just taken away from our family – and so were his assets. That seemed to be the point of all this. He was fairly well off, not wealthy but with a nice estate. All of that was gone before he died. It went into the Protective Services people. They were really careless with money and spent my Uncle’s money and other assets like drunk sailors. Our whole family is in shock. We couldn’t get an attorney to represent my Uncle. The Court appointed an attorney in that hearing in which we were not represented and neither was my Uncle. We knew nothing about the hearing. After the hearing we didn’t hear from the attorney and an attorney we tried to hire could do nothing because my Uncle had an attorney – court appointed. When you say the attorney was a “place holder” that is exactly what we experienced. Since we could do nothing in Court we were totally helpless while these people just ripped off my Uncle. Worst was we didn’t see him after they took him away. Something in the Protective Order kept us away although we never knew what that was because we’ve never been able to see the order.

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.

Motion Filed in Massachusetts Trial Court by Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett, Jr.

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

Motion is to:

Dismiss Protective Order

Validate the Health Care Proxy naming my wife – Marceline Donaldson – as my Health Care Proxy

Invalidate the Health Care {Proxy which the court put in place naming Maliça Aronowitz as Health Care Proxy

and

Sanction Attorney James O’Sullivan

I am Rev. Dr. Robert A. Bennett, Jr. and I ask this court to dismiss the Protective Order, obtained by Attorney James O’Sullivan who asked the court for an emergency hearing in which I was not notified and Attorney O’Sullivan obtained that order in an exparte hearing through lies, misrepresentations, combined with an affidavit sworn to under penalties of perjury by Ms. Nora Al Wetaid and Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services. Ms. Al Wetaid’s affidavit is full of lies from the beginning to the end – and easily disproven.

  1. Attorney O’Sullivan declared to the court in the process of the ex parte hearing that Robert Bennett was “indigent”. Attorney O’Sullivan knew that was not true as did Ms. Al Wetaid, but both presented themselves to the court as being there on behalf of an “indigent” person.

I am Roert A. Bennett, Jr. and I have never in life been “indigent” as I am not “indigent” today.

2) Neither Attorney O’Sullivan nor Ms. Nora Al Wetaid had any reason to attempt to take over my life nor to represent me as they have tried to do attempting to separate me from life, property, family, much more and having no qualms about lying to achieve that goal.

3) Attorney O’Sullivan asked this court for the emergency hearing. To obtain such Attorney O’Sullivan lied to the court about what he claimed were the emergency reasons.

For Example: Attorney O’Sullivan did not tell the court he, Ms. Nora Al Wetaid and Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective services had the police come to my house and forcibly take me out of my home against my will and with no reason. They filed a section 12 against me on March 2, 2020 which was carried out on March 3, 2020. In that section 12 they were trying to force me into Mount Auburn Hospital.

My wife (Marceline Donaldson) and I insisted that if this was necessary then it should be Massachusetts General Hospital instead of Mount Auburn Hospital. I was concerned as to why they would insist on Mount Auburn Hospital when I was just out of Massachusetts General Hospital after brain surgery.

I was forcibly brought to Massachusetts General Hospital after eight white policemen and about five EMT people, two ambulances, theatre acted out on the sidewalk outside my house with a hospital gurney sitting there surrounded by more police and more EMT people waiting for force me onto the gurney.

I had no physical problems, at that point and walked, talked, thought and participated in life as a whole human being. Before this happened, I worked in developing a business with my wife six days a week.

4) I was brought to MGH and put in an emergency room in the section of the emergency room where people who had psychotic breaks, overdosed on drugs and/or alcohol, were a threat to society by the way they acted out in public and police had to be called, and people who were a threat to themselves having tried or threatened suicide.

My wife stayed with me in the emergency room from the time I was brought in on March 3, 2020 in the morning until I was discharged on March 4, 2020 at 3:30am the next morning.

I was discharged with “no medicines prescribed”, vitals in the normal range”, no reason for having been picked up in the first place.

5) Immediately after I was discharged from the dates on her affidavit, Ms. Nora Al Wetaid and Attorney O’Sullivan started the process of doing what they felt was necessary to put me back into the hospital and this time keep me there. Ms. Al Wetaid and Ms. Angela Clary engaged several people in MGH and outside of MGH to be a part of a conspiracy to keep me in the hospital and gave those people a story which was not true, which they knew was not true and which Attorney O’Sullivan also knew was not true, but which was what they needed to keep me in MGH with cause indefinitely.

6) My wife was accused of abuse – without proof – and with lies.

To get the second section 12 and the Protective Order, which they used to put me back into MGH just a couple days after I was discharged from the first section 12, they did not tell the court that this was the second time in 24 hours that they were trying to have me held in the hospital. They did not tell the court I had been discharged because the first section 12 should not have been filed. I did not fit any of the reasons one filed a section 12 against a human being.

After what I went through at MGH for five weeks, under the supervision of Somerville cambridge Wlder and Protective Services, it is nothing short of a miracle that I am in the good condition I am in today, living happily with my wife and family and able to have control over my body without anyone forcing me to stay in bed 24/7 as happened at MGH by the Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services who insisted that I not be allowed out of bed or out of the chair next to my bed in a space which was seven by nine feet and was also occupied by much hospital equipment.

7) A Health Care Proxy which I signed November 18, 2019 naming my wife, Marceline Donaldson as my Health Care Proxsy, was invalidated by the court at the request of Attorney O’Sullivan. Attorney O’Sullivan apparently hid from the court the fact that the Health Care Proxy he asked the court to validate was one which appointed Maliça Aronowitz as Health Care Proxy, it was also one about which I knew nothing, had not signed and did not want Ms. Aronowitz as my Health Care Proxy.

8) I asked Donald McInnis to create the new Health Care Proxy which I signed on November 18, 2019 – another fact Attorney O’Sullivan kept from the court.

I discovered Ms. Aronowitz had a Health Care Proxy about which I knew nothing, had not signed and did not want Ms. Aronowitz as my Health Care Proxy. It is my understanding that Health Care Proxy’s created for and signed by the individual who is the subject of the Health Care Proxy are to be respected and not so irresponsibly invalidated without proof of anything. It was also my understanding that it was illegal to have such an ex parte hearing because this is the kind of thing which can result. There are exceptions to that rule, however, I would not think that a hearing in which my freedom as at stake and which changed my health care proxy would be a hearing about which I would not be notified.

9) In addition, the Health Care Proxy which Mr. McInnis created and had been signed by me on November 18, 2019 had a one character typo which was of concern to MGH because there were people all over the hospital trying to “investigate” me, my family, and more.

MGH issued its own Health Care Proxy and that was done after the woman who handles such for MGH talked to me in my hospital room several days after the operation when I was quite able to understand the conversation and conveyed to her several times that I wanted meh wife, Marceline Donaldson, as my proxy.

MGH is not a “fly by night” institution which goes around issuing Health Care Proxy’s without first doing the work to make sure they are legal and properly executed and are very particular about what they do. This court totally disrespected MGH and the person who issued the proxy and instead validated a Health Care Proxy which Ms. Al Wetaid knew had not been signed by me and about which I knew nothing and which Attorney O’Sullivan knew the same or should have known.

At the very least, Attorney O’Sullivan knew the Health Care Proxy created by Attorney McInnis invalidated the proxy which Maliça Aronowitz presented to MGH because Attorney McInnis’ Health Care Proxy specifically stated any HPC prior to November 18, 2019 was invalidated.

10) If I had been notified of the hearing we would have been able to present the history of the HCP’s which the court invalidated and that I actually appointed Marceline Donaldson as my Health Care Proxy and that was my wish executed by Attorney McInnis and MGH with my knowledge and at my request That would have prevented the pain, horror and loss of weeks of my life that has now happened. That was the beginning of Attorney O’Sullivan pushing into my life and creating a horrible mess, which – on knowledge and belief – has happened before and Attorney O’Sullivan and those like him should be removed from being involved in such decisions and in lives of people whose assets have been taken, who have lost family and friends and some who have sound up homeless.

11) I am asking that the entire Protective Order be invalidated and removed. I would be more specific, but in spite of having received the records of my case from attorneys and not having been able to get a copy of the Protective Order from this court I don’t know what else is contained therein.

Given the way Attorney O’Sullivan handled this and the way Ms. Noral Al Wetaid lied in her affidavit to support Attorney O’Sullivan, I am sure whatever else is in the Protective Order is not in my best interest nor in the best interest of my family.

I have and have had family who cares about me and about whom I care. My wife and I have taken care of each other for over 36 years. We do not need any oversight by these groups, nor did we want Home Health Care Services which is an institution which also has serious problems not the least of which is sexual abuse of those they supposedly oversee. This is what I have been forced to go through by people who are what – lusting after our estate?

Given the fact that the only illness I have had in the entire time of my marriage to Marceline Donaldson, was the two falls which were due to eye surgery which Maliça Aronowitz pushed me into having, which I did not want and which did nothing for my eyes, but which has caused this grief. There are not many in as good shape as we are and should continue to be but for the interference of groups like Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services.

I am 87 years old and my wife is 82 years old we must be doing something right about our life and health.

It took quite a bit to get me back to good health after being discharged from MGH this last time because when I left the hospital I could barely walk even with the help of a walker and when I arrived home I do so without shoes because my feet were so swollen none of my shoes fit. I also had to have help getting into the car which brought me home and two people plus the walker had to help me get out of the car. That is what Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services “intervention” into my life caused me and my family.

When I was forced into MGH I was walking, talking, enjoying the company of friends, had just sat down to a candlelight dinner with my adult children who had driven from Washington, D. C. to spend time with me after my brain surgery and so much more. My wife and I were working on a substantial expansion of the business in which I work and that expansion would have carried us through this COVID-19 time. Instead, we have been reduced to fighting people trying to destroy my life, our marriage, my family relationships and more, using our resources because a few people saw a way to act out their greed” Their need to be Mother Theresa” their overstepping their job descriptions?……etc.

The “Protective Order” and Maliça Aronowitz as my Health Care Proxy forced on me by this court were not in my best interest and, in fact, caused my health to fail. Maliça was picked to be my Health Care Proxy probably because it was clear my wife was not going to allow anyone to feed me 10 t0 12 pills per day without prescriptions and without any diagnosis which said those pills were needed. MaliCa Aronowitz was apparently seen as someone who could be manipulated to the advantage of all those concerned.

I am now walking over 1 mile per day. I am back to work with my wife six days a week without fatigue, my shoes not fit, and my health is as good as it has been over the years. That happened under the care of Marceline Donaldson who stopped the downward spiral Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services along with Ms. Nora Al Wetaid and Ms. Angela Clary and Attorney O’Sullivan and the psychologist who authorized the section 12 without ever having even met me and who signed off on a second section 12 without any qualms about the possibility that something untoward was going on if I had been discharged by MGH and the first section 12 lifted by them.

I was given hallucinatory drugs, psychotropic drugs and many other pills which added up to about 10 pills per day without my knowledge of what they were nor my consent. My wife was kept away and could not visit – she was allowed to visit only 3 times in five weeks and then only for 1/2 hour each time and then only with a Security Guard and policeman present during those three visits.

I think I have been put through enough by this institution and I am asking that my Health Care Proxy that I wanted and asked to be created be validated – that Malica Aronowitz be removed as my Health Care Proxy and my wife put back in that place which was my choice from the beginning – and that these institutions stay out of my life, including Attorney O’Sullivan and Somerville Cambridge Elder and Protective Services.

I am also asking that Attorney O’Sullivan be sanctioned and that Somerville/Cambridge Elder and Protective Services be closed until they can be investigated to see how many people they have so pushed over into their area of power.

We have been contacted by several people who have experienced the same thing and after talking with them extensively, we believe this is a criminal conspiracy which operates within Massachusetts Protective and Elder Services – which at the least needs new management and at best needs to have all of the people they have forced into their sphere of operation questioned to see what happened to them and if they and their families were harmed by this group.
