Elder abuse is a serious concern and it’s on the rise, given the growing aging population in Quebec.

Elder abuse is a serious concern and it’s on the rise, given the growing aging population in Quebec.

According to Article 48 of the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, “Every aged person and every handicapped person has a right to protection against any form of exploitation. Such a person also has a right to the protection and security that must be provided to him by his family or the persons acting in their stead.”

Elder abuse, or the “exploitation of an aged person,” involves taking advantage of the vulnerable state or dependency of a person of advanced age and ultimately depriving this person of his or her rights. This can be in the form of physical abuse, psychological abuse, emotional abuse, abuse of rights, financial abuse, or neglect. Disturbingly, in most cases, the abuse is committed by someone in a position of trust who is well known to the individual, such as a family member or a close friend.

A “Criminally Abused Elderly Man” a Victim of Montreal-Court-Injustice finds rational support on the World Stage.

I, like so many others, saw the evil that was being perpetrated daily in “The Family-Court in Montreal.” There are “Bad Apples” in the Court System who profit from the victims, but Our Court does nothing about their crimes of abuse. The following page highlights how and what happens to a victim.

The perpetrators of Evil are;
1. - Individual Officers of the Court [“Bad Apples”] They cheat and abuse the victims.
2. - Others become guilty of the evil of passive inaction.

The following Talk given on a World Stage [TED], makes the argument that it is the "Organizations" as a whole who are guilty of passive inaction.

"Philip Zimbardo knows how easy it is for nice people to turn bad. In this talk, he shares insights and graphic unseen photos from the Abu Ghraib trials.
So we need a paradigm shift in all of these areas. The shift is away from the medical model that focuses only on the individual[“Bad Apples”]. The shift is toward a public health model that recognizes situational and systemic vectors of disease."

The Court must be made to change it's ways!
