There is a term out there called " Vulnerable adult". These type of patients are to be housed and cared for by each states Dept of Disabilty & Aging.
Yet many are a bit money hungry.
- I met a guy worse off than myself (mentally) and homeless and using a wheelchair. He was not faking it. His one foot was covered in diabetic lesions. He could not stand.
He slept in his chair behind the pizza place dumpster. His speech was unintelligable. Many people gave money and food. We and many others called government departments. There was no help.
- An elderly woman at my last apartment claimed she was kidnapped. She had some level of dementia and it showed. She was paranoid, would not open the door.
Well, she had been kidnapped, by Dept of Aging (commited) and later released for reasons unknown. She was loaded: xbig apartment, paid deposit for large dog, beautiful luxary furniture. She was always coming home from shopping.
(people who are taken in also have their funds and saving appropriated by the Dept of Aging & Disability to pay for care)
I suspect they are currupt in their morals and thinking, but they are not breaking the law.
