Guardians can sell the assets and control the lives of senior citizens without their consent—and reap a profit from it.
Rennie, his wife of fifty-seven years, was slower to rise. She was recovering from lymphoma and suffered from neuropathy so severe that her legs felt like sausages. Each morning, she spent nearly an hour in the bathroom applying makeup and lotions, the same brands she’d used for forty years. She always emerged wearing pale-pink lipstick. Rudy, who was prone to grandiosity, liked to refer to her as “my amour.”
On the Friday before Labor Day, 2013, the Norths had just finished their toast when a nurse, who visited five times a week to help Rennie bathe and dress, came to their house, in Sun City Aliante, an “active adult” community in Las Vegas. They had moved there in 2005, when Rudy, a retired consultant for broadcasters, was sixty-eight and Rennie was sixty-six. They took pride in their view of the golf course, though neither of them played golf.
Rudy chatted with the nurse in the kitchen for twenty minutes, joking about marriage and laundry, until there was a knock at the door. A stocky woman with shiny black hair introduced herself as April Parks, the owner of the company A Private Professional Guardian. She was accompanied by three colleagues, who didn’t give their names. Parks told the Norths that she had an order from the Clark County Family Court to “remove” them from their home. She would be taking them to an assisted-living facility. “Go and gather your things,” she said.
Rennie began crying. “This is my home,” she said.
One of Parks’s colleagues said that if the Norths didn’t comply he would call the police. Rudy remembers thinking, You’re going to put my wife and me in jail for this? But he felt too confused to argue.

Ashley Harris Mysteriously Vanished before Christmas in 2014. We do not know if she is alive or dead. She disappeared suddenly after publishing youtube videos about being abused by Santa Clara County CPS Social Workers. Family Court Judge Jackueline Arroyo dispatched the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department to stalk, harass and threaten the young girl’s parents – demanding that they keep quiet and not draw attention to the abuse and disappearance of their adolescent daughter. Santa Clara County Sheriff Detective David Carroll has a history of falsifying police reports and fabricating evidence which was given exception to the Rule by Santa Clara County Public Defender Molly O’Neil. The community fears that he may harm the child because he has done things like this before. Detective Carroll is is a very dangerous predator & he assigned to investigate Juvenile / Missing Person cases. This is great cause for alarm!
