"Conservatorships are a disgraceful attempt at owning another human being; often used with the excuse of 'care' when the real incentive is to incapacitate someone and steal their money. This man's case, along with many others throughout the nation, has clear signs of misappropriation of monetary funds- i.e. financial abuse. Please stop encouraging financial abuse of the elderly by sitting by and doing nothing."
